Forget James Bond. Forget Jason Bourne. Forget Jack Bauer. Meet Victor. He's an assassin - a man with no past and no surname. But when a Paris job goes spectacularly wrong, Victor finds himself running for his life across four continents, accompanied by a woman too beautiful to trust, pursued by enemies too powerful to escape.

Great detail, great story: couldn't stop listening

What made the experience of listening to The Hunter the most enjoyable?

Tom Wood appears to have struck the perfect balance between detail, realism and story. This is a superbly written novel. The story is a little Dexter-like: you can't help but loving the bad guy. I have already downloaded the next book in the series, I just hope Tom keeps them coming!
