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 to, 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 twelve 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.
A very good read
I’ve read all of Tom Wood’s Victor novels and they’re all of a very high standard. Victor is a very tough cookie indeed. The action is great. Plots have some nice twists and turns at times. I’d recommend starting with the first novel in the series and working through them to this one.
I’ve read all of the previous books in this series and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them. This one, however, I nearly put down before the end as I found the evade and escape chapters to long and difficult to suspend my belief in.
For the first time I found myself not liking Victor, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but that along with the lengthy and hard to believe chase scene disappointed me.
I will, however read the next in the series in the hope that the storyline is as enjoyable as those previous to this one.
Fast paced, awesome read
I have read all of the books in the series. They are all fast paced, and can't put down reads. This one is no exception - fabulous!!
