The Reader Never Takes a Breath!
Introducing…The Enemy by Tom Wood
This is a truly great read featuring an unforgettable character named, Victor; once a hit man for the British, he is now obligated to work for the CIA.
Let’s just say that in the good old days, when Victor was loving the fact he was a freelance assassin, he would always be given at least two week’s notice to perform his duties. This would give him the time to find a good location, locate the best weapon to use in order to get the job done right, and research everything there was to know abut the city so that he could draw-up an excellent escape route that was absolutely fool-proof.
But now…times have changed. With Victor’s new employer, he’s looking at a whole new world that basically has him extremely worried considering the fact that the CIA plays by their own rules. For his assignment, Victor is given a list of three targets that are to be killed immediately.
What originally promises to be an ‘easy’ assignment for Victor, becomes absolute chaos and tosses him into trouble where he literally finds that he cannot trust anyone, especially his new employers. With the CIA comes a time clock, which gives Victor approximately two days to finalize his planning. Having to travel to Romania, Russia and on to Washington, D.C. in order to carry out the assignments, Victor has very little research time and no longer feels like anything is fool-proof. Add to that the fact that he must deal with a little romance that sparks up with an old girlfriend – a woman who has no idea what his job entails and ends up being put in danger – and Victor is definitely running around like an assassin with his head cut off.
Warning: The reader must pay close attention to this one, as Victor is constantly chasing, or being chased, while locating his targets before he becomes a target himself. Benefit: The exact same as the ‘warning’. This is a thriller to the ‘nth’ degree and never once can be called boring. Readers will crave to see this one appear on the big screen.
Until Next Time, Everybody,
