Better off Dead by Tom Wood
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Victor the assassin is known to Tom Wood fans and loved, newcomers need not worry about earlier books, just start here and then read them all, they’re great. We get 450 pages of action, narrow escapes, clever self-defence moves and precautions in the face of overwhelming power! It is a classic story of the journey of an innocent girl being driven to trust a ruthless psychopath, their relationship is cleverly drawn. Personally I think there is perhaps a bit too much random shooting in the streets of London and some city details are inaccurate but the plot is fast and furious in a terrific read.

If you like Tom Wood you might also like to read books by Lee Child, Stephen Leather and Robert Ludlum.

Synopsis

Better off Dead by Tom Wood

Victor is the face in the crowd you don't see, a perfect assassin with nothing to live for. But when an old friend turns to him for help, he finds he can't refuse. For once his objective isn't to kill, but to protect. Hunted through the streets of London by ruthless enemies, Victor needs to be more than just a bodyguard...but his every move leads danger closer to the very person he's vowed to defend.
