I.M.H.O. this is by far the BEST action/thriller series out there! I'm sure you guys have read the summary so I won't get into describing the plot. I will tell you that the writer(Tom Hinshlewood) is extremely under-rated and deserves to be mentioned in the same breath with all the other "household names" in the A/T genre. I will say that this is a very well written action-packed book 2 in the not-to-well-known "Victor The Assassin" series. Some reviewers have mentioned that they wanted more "character growth" from the protagonist and I respect their opinions however I feel as a character "Victor's" developing quite nicely so far and he definitely has more personality in this installment than he did in book 1. He's an assassin after all, how much character is the guy suppose to have? Some of you might strongly disagree with me on this but I think this series is even BETTER than the "Gray Man" series. There's definitely no "sophomore slump" here! I cannot recommend this series enough. Check it out!

Would you listen to The Enemy: Victor the Assassin, Book 2 again? Why?
I'm currently on my fourth listen in the last year or so.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Victor is the only answer to this question.
What does Rob Shapiro bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Rob Shapiro is very dry and calculated, and I mean that in a good way. He is the perfect voice to portray the slightly bleak world view that exists in this book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I certainly could listen to the entirety of this book in one long car ride if I ever found myself in that situation.
Any additional comments?
I have listened to a hundred books in this genre over the past few years and simply put, this is a shining example of what a modern thriller should be. The whole series is fantastic, but this book in particular is flawless. Believable plot and characters without sacrificing drama, this book manages to be epic in scale and local at the same time. Bravo.
