Victor the assassin returns in the new novel from the author of The Killer, The Enemy, and The Game…
THE JOB IS SIMPLE
When Victor is called to meet with an old friend who ultimately betrayed him, what he thought was an ambush is in fact a plea for help. As a Russian gangster, Norimov is accustomed to death threats, but now an unknown enemy wants more than his life. They intend to kill everyone he cares about, including his missing daughter Gisele. This time, Victor’s job is not to kill but to protect. Unfortunately, locating Gisele is his first mistake—because someone is watching his every move.
ESCAPE IS IMPOSSIBLE
Before she went into hiding, Gisele had uncovered a secret worth killing for—and now Victor has brought the enemy right to her doorstep. The least he can do is help her escape. But the ruthless network they’re up against has the police, MI5, and every major news outlet joining in the manhunt across London.
No Tomorrow is a fast paced, explosive novel filled with tons of gun fights, fist fights, car chases, and action. Combine James Bond and Jason Bourne and you may have Victor as a child. The grown up version is much worse or better depending on if he is for you or after you. A true thrill a minute read with twists and turns not only in the storyline, but also Victor’s methods of staying alive. Espionage and intrigue abound in this exciting novel.
Victor is asked to do a favor for one of his old associates, turned enemy. While he would never want to do anything but kill him, he does the favor for the man’s departed wife. Victor has to keep his enemy’s stepdaughter safe and alive. Thus begins the drama and thrills ensue. Russian gangster Norimov is faced with vague threats against his estranged stepdaughter Gisele. Once Victor finds her and they are on the run, Victor realizes it is not Norimov who is being targeted. Gisele has uncovered a secret worth killing for that she does not even know she knows. They are being hunted by mercenaries, the police, and MI5.
I did not think I would enjoy this thriller, but I did. While this is not the type of novel I would normally look for, it was exciting, thrill packed and very well written. The main character Victor is an assassin with quirks and standards. No cussing is one of his idiosyncrasies and you do not want to make him mad. I had not read any other of Mr Wood’s books starring Victor, but I do not think it is necessary to get pulled in by his character. I could easily see it being made into an action packed movie blockbuster. Any Bond, Bourne or Reacher fan will enjoy reading No Tomorrow. They will get a kick out of it and be waiting for the next installment.
