Publisher's Summary

Forget James Bond. Forget Jason Bourne. Forget Jack Bauer.
Meet Victor. He's an assassin - a man with no past and no surname. He lives alone. He operates alone. He's given a job; he takes out the target; he gets paid. He's The Killer.
Victor arrives in Paris to perform a standard kill and collect for an anonymous client. He completes it with trademark efficiency - only to find himself in the middle of an ambush and fighting for his life. Pursued by determined enemies, a woman too beautiful to be safe, and intelligence agencies from both sides of the Atlantic, Victor will soon discover there is nowhere left for him to hide...and no one he can trust. But he is every bit as ruthless as those hunting him. And Victor will find out who wants him dead and why - one corpse at a time.


What the Critics Say

"A superlative fiction debut.... Nonstop action that veers and twists from one ferocious gun battle, double cross, and betrayal to the next.... Thriller fans will be eager to see more from this bright new talent." (Publishers Weekly)

You Can't Help Pulling for the "Bad Guy"

When Tom Wood's "The Enemy" showed up as #2 in the series as a recommended read for me on Audible, I went back and bought The Killer and listened to it first. It was an exceptional novel, as good as Mark Greaney's "The Gray Man" but far less specific about the character's back story. It starts with a bang and keeps a fast pace through the entire novel. I could not wait to listen to this book all the way to the end. And as soon as I was done, I started on book 2. I hope this author gives us much more of Victor, the assassin in this series, because I have come to really enjoy his style of writing, and the cleverness of the character.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It is hard to find good books and I have listen to all three in this series and would recommend it to anyone wanting to be entertained for hours.... When I do a review I like to name some of my favorite authors to explain the type of books I enjoy , Vince Flynn, Lee Childs, Barry Eisler, Jack Campbell, and John Ringo to name a few....

What did you like best about this story?

It pulls you in from the start and doesn't let you go....

What does Rob Shapiro bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Rob Shapiro brings Victor and the other characters to life. I will now use his name to search and see what else might be interesting...
