Sarah Broadhurst's view...

There are many Jack Reacher wannabes but there are none, in my opinion, to touch him. However, the hero here, Sam Carver, in his third outing, comes mighty close. He is a retired MI6 hit man and now he’s been framed for crimes he didn’t do … obviously he must clear his name … and in doing so discovers a plot which must be foiled. Terrific stuff. Highly recommended.

Comparison: Lee Child, Brett Battles, Robert Ludlum.

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

Synopsis

Assassin by Tom Cain

He is the most popular President in decades - which is why they want him dead When a people-trafficker dies a violent death in Dubai, and a gangland money-launderer has a fatal car accident in San Francisco, both bear the hallmarks of a Sam Carver 'accident'. The only problem is Sam Carver no longer plays that game. He made a promise.

But someone is setting Carver up, framing him for crimes he didn't commit. And now his old paymasters at MI6 want him stopped. A copycat killer wants to crush Carver, and then beat him at his own game by hitting the world's most prominent target, the new President of the United States.

Carver will have to use all his cunning and tradecraft to stop this deadly opponent. Alone and on the run, he must fight to clear his name - but first he must stop a fatal shot that will be heard around the world.
