A hitman must be anonymous, amoral...and alone.
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.
Published in the US as No Tomorrow.

"Jack Reacher meets Thomas Crown in this electrifying thriller." (Simon Kernick on The Hunter)
"Authentically brutal." (The Telegraph on The Enemy)
"Echoes of Jason Bourne...each plot twist is unexpected and well-timed." (Daily Mail on The Enemy)
A thrilling, fast paced yarn.
Identical concept to Mark Dawson's John Milton series. A magnetic concept done well.
Thorough research results in excellent detail. The larger-than-life characters are plausible in a fictional context.
Nothing. The character accents are good; tonal nuances well placed and performed.
This a book, indeed the entire Tom Wood series, is top schoolboy adventure stuff but it isn't for purists who can't live with the fictional license of being beyond reasonable possibility. This is pure fiction where anything goes- and is allowed to.
Again an action packed narrative with Victor showing another side to his personality. Ready for the next.
Philpott delivers again demonstrating that great narration is as important as a good storyline.
A twist on the previous three Victor books with him playing protector rather than assassin. It worked well and the storyline was still fast paced.
The only reason I gave this book an 'overall' 4, rather than a 5, is that I have listened to the series in relatively quick succession and hence there was a small element of 'repetitive format' this time around ... but it is still a very entertaining read / listen.
When I began this book I was not sure if it was my sort of book but as it progressed it drew me in to a different world. I thought the ending was the best part. An intense book all the way through but the ending unexpectedly made me chuckle.
"A stunning masterpiece"
There is not much more I can say about this audiobook that my title has not already covered. The 'Victor the assassin' series has swept me away and kept me highly entertained beyond any of my expectations.
I am thoroughly disappointed I have come to the end of the series, now I will spend the rest of my days searching for other audiobooks that can potentially deliver so much happiness to my poor soul. I feel bereft. Like an alcoholic with no access to liquor. Like a hula without the hoop. Like a bean that wasn't made by Heinz. A monster without the much. My list could go on...
Buy the book. Buy all 4 books in the series, work your way through as I have done. then maybe I can be joined by more people in sharing my grief in finishing sharing adventures with Victor the assassin, until his next book at least.
"James Bond he Ain't"
Another Victor romp. Our cardboard cutout super assassin is suavely popping off the baddies and sometimes the goodies. The last pages are very clever and round off the tale nicely so its worth listening to the end.
"Gratuitous Violence Spoiling any Storyline"
The finale of this story seemed, to me, to be totally concerned with how much violence could be squeezed into each chapter, Including, ramming a pistol barrel into the "baddies" eye socket to kill him! Really.......!!!!
Had enjoyed previous novels but this will be my last Tom Wood book I'm afraid.
Too much Gratuitous Violence
Not Very Good
Concentrate on the story line Mr Wood and, don't get carried away with the violence.
"Listened to this audio book in one go!"
I really enjoyed this story and the way it was read. The 81 chapters got hold of me and I couldn't put it down! However, the nearer the end the more swearing. So it is not something you could listen to 'out loud' without upsetting you're neighbours by mistake. The "c"pops up too.
When I was showing a group of friends my tablet and Audio Book App, I found myself apologising when I got caught out with the swearing off hand.
This was a shame. I didn't know the words were coming up! This day and age I suppose I should have realised, but the reading started out ok, and the 'baddies' had to speak this way to be tough it seems. It was a shame though as I would have given it 5's otherwise if it had not been for the strong language popping up from the middle to the end.
"A good balance of action and suspense"
A good listen wish it was longer and the relationships explained but great action and it is on par with the previous books
"Lived up to the rest"
As good as the first and last. This book will not be a disappointment, lots going on and at a great pace.
"excellent and worth the wait"
great series that keeps building on the original plot, well narrated
hope this is not the last in the series.
"On edge all the way through"
Good listen from start to end and kept captivated by each character. A must listen!!!
"Victor has a Heart"
I like how Victor does anything he can to protect the daughter of an old friend
I love this book, the plot is top-notch and the pace goes like a rocket but at the same time you never feel lost in the story
Victor is brilliant and keeps getting better. great stuff very enjoyable experience and character build ups
