A Time to Die (Victor the Assassin Book 6) Kindle Edition
AUTHOR OF THE BBC RADIO 2 BOOK CLUB HIT BETTER OFF DEAD
From hot thriller author Tom Wood comes the latest breathtaking Victor novel - The Day of the Jackal meets Jason Bourne, with a thoroughly modern twist.
'Terrifically fun and explosively propulsive'
Gregg Hurwitz, author of Orphan X
Even a killer can be a hero
If the assassin known only as Victor once had a moral compass, it is long since buried, along with his many victims. Yet some men are so evil even Victor accepts they must die for reasons other than just money.
One such is Milan Rados, a former commander in the Serbian army who has escaped trial at The Hague to become a formidable criminal power. Tracking down and killing this brutal man will win Victor a reprieve for his own recent crimes on British soil.
But Victor isn't the only one who wants Rados dead. A woman, whose family was butchered on the tyrant's orders, will do anything to see Rados' blood spilled on the snow of Eastern Europe. Now Victor has an unlikely ally - but an army stands between them and justice.
Very few British writers are as good at this sort of all-action thriller. Victor makes Bond look like Milly-Molly-Mandy. (Sunday Express)
A Time to Die is action thriller in pure Darwinian form . . . Lean, mean and utterly ruthless, Wood's achievement is to get the reader to root for this assassin (Weekend Herald) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

In short Victor, now working for the jolly British has to infiltrate a Serbian crime syndicate and get to the top man and uncovers a grimy world of human trafficking and many other lurid schemes. Needless to say a a lot people get Victored along the way.
This a is cracking good read and which bar the inconvenience of life I would have devoured in a day.
For those of you who mourn the demise of Jack Reacher, please pick up Mr Wood's creation you will not regret it. I have already converted two people into solid Victor fans and I eagerly await the next in series.
So he infiltrates the bad guys, and finds he has a few things in common with the guy he is out there to kill. He shows a slightly softer side on occasion, but generally this is all about Victor keeping a few steps ahead of everything and generally being cleverer than everyone.
The problem is that we have seen much of this before and the plot is not strong enough to carry repetition and a lack of personality.
So this was okay but not up to the high standards the author has set with his previous books.
