Antonio Alvarez, now a high-ranking operative in the CIA seeking the closure on Victor he was hitherto denied owing to lack of authority, is determined to clean out the Augean stables. He launches a no-holes barred hunt for Victor who evaded him during a covert operation in Paris. The only person Victor feels he can confidently turn to for help is Constance Raven, a ruthless, cold hitwoman. Once instrumental in saving her he now wants her to reciprocate - by 'liquidating' him.
The tightly told tale is interestingly bold on a number of levels and certainly action packed - like a non-stop adventure movie - punctuated with multiple threads and twists and turns; the dialogue is believable and moves the story along, although some readers may consider the interaction between Victor and Raven relies more on physical than oral dynamics.
Tom Wood is a master of this genre and loyal fans will be salivating for more.
