Publisher's Summary

When Victor is called to meet with an old friend who ultimately betrayed him, what he thought was an ambush is in fact a plea for help. As a Russian gangster, Norimov is accustomed to death threats, but now an unknown enemy wants more than his life. They intend to kill everyone he cares about, including his missing daughter Gisele. This time, Victor's job is not to kill but to protect. Unfortunately, locating Gisele is his first mistake - because someone is watching his every move.
Before she went into hiding, Gisele had uncovered a secret worth killing for - and now Victor has brought the enemy right to her doorstep. The least he can do is help her escape. But the ruthless network they're up against has the police, MI-5, and every major news outlet joining in the manhunt across London.

You are all crazy - And here is why.


This is the problem with books that run in series, and people that fall in love with an Author and or the character. They can't differentiate between the good and the bad, and they will write reviews based off feelings based off past experiences... I liked the first 2 books - I really liked the 3rd... I didn't drink the Koolaid though - So I will say without a doubt - This book stunk. The only constantly good thing was Rob Shapiro. The Story line was horrible, and there was no suspense to it... The bad lady went through hell and back again to kill someone that didn't have a clue about anything. Really??? A S@#t load of mercenaries to find one girl....... Lets not leave out the fact that the dialog and interaction between our favorite assassin and the girl was terrible... So much about nothing... I wasn't drawn in or intrigued at any point in time. I hate to say it - Because I am Anti Grey Man - But this felt very similar to that kind of novel... No substance - No mystery - No quality assassin work. Also - Lets put an ad in the paper for the worlds top assassin - As anyone can find them... I'm telling you - If they left the country and hid in a cave like Osama did. I still had the feeling like they would get conveniently found. It's almost Voodoish anymore in some books. If you see a squirrel and a rabbit in the same day - Then they must be in hidding in the hotel across the street... I purchased this book based off my past experiences. I wrote this review based off my current experience.

For what it's worth... J

Wood's Dunnit Again! 15 Stars!

"Crackle!"

That's the sound of a micro mystery breaking open. Victor the Assassin faces a macro mystery in each book... A job that's seriously impossible. But between the assignment and the conclusion... There's a carpet of pop-it beads that Victor's gotta' walk... Each one a devilish threat to his life, and each larger than the last. And each's gotta' be stomped on the way to the other end.

And so these books CRACKLE! Each pop-it is a cliff hanger that keeps me in the car... In the driveway... Holds me to a chore, keeps me on the treadmill... And speaking of devilish... Rob Shapiro has a simmering voice that's like a soundtrack of distant drums... Menacingly pounding out a rhythm of sometimes dread, sometime awe, all the time tension.

Wood is a clever story teller with plot lines that tie together action explosions that frequently come from Tom-Clancy-like detailed gear.

Yep, I liked "No Tomorrow" enough to warn you NOT TO BUY OR LISTEN TO THIS BOOK unless you started the series at the beginning with "The Killer". Why suffer spoiler alerts as Victor the Assassin grows with each new installment. Wood's is our Ian Fleming, only wonderfully darker and not as absurd... Well, not quite :-)

These books... They CRACKLE!
