Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Hopefully last year you were persuaded to read this man’s first novel, The Accident Man so enthusiastic was I. So now you have no excuse, you just have to follow through with the second Samuel Carver adventure. It carries on directly from the first with him leaving the Swiss clinic bent on finding the woman he loves. But if you’ve not read the first, fear no. You can backtrack when you’ve finished this. For pure adrenaline-pull and thrilling escapism you can hardly do better.

Comparison: Frederick Forsyth, Lee Child, Robert Ludlum.

If you like Tom Cain you might also like to read books by Lee Child, Ted Bell and Stephen Leather.

Synopsis

The Survivor by Tom Cain

Samuel Carver makes bad accidents happen to worse people. He’s very good at his job. But nobody’s perfect. And one of Carver’s targets has got away.

Now the world faces a new age of conflict driven by religious fanaticism. In Russia, the government have admitted they no longer know the whereabouts of one hundred small-scale ‘suitcase nukes’. In Afghanistan and Kosovo, ruthless terrorists plot the downfall of their hated enemies. In Texas, a dying billionaire plots his own personal Armageddon.

And Carver can do nothing to stop them. He was beaten and tortured and left to die, but Samuel Carver is a hard man to kill. When he awakes in a Swiss sanatorium from weeks of torment, he discovers that the woman he loves has vanished. Somehow he must find the strength to track her down.

Carver’s hunt will take him deep into the heart of a conspiracy in which the lives of millions are at stake. He must confront an agonizing choice between his duty and his heart, and face the ultimate sacrifice. As the clock ticks down to doomsday, who will survive the final, explosive conflagration?

In The Survivor the worlds of fact and fiction collide in a thriller that grips from the first page to the last.

'Another stunner ... The pace of the narrative and the twists of the storyline make for compulsive and vastly entertaining reading.' Wilbur Smith
