The whole series is incredibly gripping. I would suggest to anyone with an interest in this type of novel they should read about Victor!
(Start from the begining though, you don't want to miss out! )
Easy to read
Believability is getting a bit thin, cars have steering locks, yes he could steal a car but not just hot wiring it, he put three shots into the chest of a man he previously knew wore body armour, yes it set the scene for a big finale that it didn’t really need.
Better off dead
This is a cracking page turner I couldn't put it down.
