Publisher's Summary

He is darkness. She wants him dead. In a city starved of light, she might just succeed. She moves like a shadow; she kills silently: Raven.
This elegant assassin has been on the run for years. This time, though, she has picked the wrong target.
The hitman known only as "Victor" is as paranoid as he is merciless and is no stranger to being hunted. He tracks his would-be killer across the globe, aiming not only to neutralise the threat but to discover who wants him dead.
The trail leads to New York...and then the lights go out. Over 12 hours of unremitting darkness, Manhattan dissolves into chaos. Amid looting, conspiracy and blackout, Victor and Raven play a vicious game of cat and mouse that the city will never forget.

Not the best of the Victor the Assassin books

I've really enjoyed this series, but this last one seemed to get lost at times. The chase in New York went on for too long and all seemed a bit farcical with police and other agents appearing to intercept the couple at every turn. Manhattan is a big place!
On balance though, Tom Woods character is very believable and a brought to life by Daniel Philpott who does a great job.

Who is Victor?

I've listened to all the books and enjoyed them all. This one, however, seemed too forced. The plot was thin, the coincidences and cliches too typical. The car chases and pursuits turned into sagas rather than page turners. I also lost focus on who Victor is. Whatever his moral compass, it seems wayward in this book.

Disappointing

I've been enthralled by previous books in this series. This one was quite hard-going. No particular story except Victor's & Raven's survival. Guess I don't enjoy simply he kills, she kills, they kill! A pity because I've really enjoyed the earlier books. Not sure I'll bother with any more.
