VICTOR - The Thinking Man's Assassin...
Maybe, if I had nothing else to listen to. It certainly is good enough for a repeat performance.
Rob Shapiro is Victor. I have listened to the previous 4 in the series and this one is right up there.
I think this has got to be the BEST Victor book yet! I don't think there is as much action as in some of the others but... there is a whole lot of tactical planning and scenarios that require life and death strategizing. Don't get me wrong, this is Victor the Assassin and he does his assassin thing but he is also very intelligent and although that's been established in previous books I think this one exemplifies this to the smallest degree.
The story is a good one and I think would work as a stand alone but is better as part of the series. Victor is now doing contract work for the CIA as an independent contractor. He's sent on a job and is ambushed. There is another assassin there trying to kill him. Neither is killed and Victor is determined to get her befor she can come after him again. There are many twists and turns and his enemy becomes his ally. Together they go after who hired her and WHY he hired her. Meanwhile by the time you hit the end - WOW! Totally unexpected, but I cannot spoil this for anyone.
