I was put onto this book by a friend who had read the reviews although she had not read the book, as yet. The timing was perfect as I was looking for a book to read as my wife and I made our semi annual trek from our home in Tucson to our summer home in Maine by car. It is a five day, four night drive and a book that takes you by the lapels and brings you inside the cover is just what I need after all those miles before catching some shut eye.
The author did not disappoint which is a nice compliment for a first effort. The central figure of the book is Victor and Victor is most assuredly "a killer" in every sense of the word. He has been hired to intercept and kill a Russian turncoat who is selling the whereabouts of a sunken Russian submarine which is carrying some very sophistcated and highly desirable anti-ship missles which are more technically advanced than anything in the West. His employers are unknown, but they are willing to pay very well for the "flash drive" that the Russian is selling.
Completing the assignment was the easiest part of the effort for Victor, however as he returns to his Parisian hotel following obtaining the drive he finds that there is a team of killers at the hotel and they are looking for him.
Eight dead men left behind testify to Victor's accomplishments as a killer, but his problem is now, who were they, who were they working for and has he been double crossed?
From here on in the story gets very interesting and very complicated and if you want to find out how the matter plays out, I suggest you do yourself the favor of acquiring this book and settling in for a few nights of solid reading. You will be glad you did.
