An impossible mission, for a man who barely exists.
The mysterious assassin known only as Victor is locked in an uneasy alliance with the CIA. And he has a list: Three names, three victims. Worst of all, Victor is given just two days to take down his targets, forcing him to compromise his usual extreme care.
With each name Victor crosses off his list, the game grows far more complex - and far more lethal. A conspiracy begins to unwind and suddenly this perfect assassin becomes the perfect target.
Zooming from Moscow to London and Washington, and loaded with suspense, twists and sex appeal, The Enemy is a high-octane thrill-ride ideal for fans of Lee Child.

I'm ready to download the next one in the series now. I enjoy the description that had me watching the action as a movie in my head.
Yes. Another great performance, demonstrating what a talented narrator can add to the enjoyment of audio books
It wouldn't be essential to have read (listened to) the first in the series to find this book thoroughly entertaining but personally I'd recommend "The Hunter" first as it will give context to parts of the story.
I enjoyed The Hunter more as it introduced and developed "victor".
This had a good story line with sub plots as well , but again the Narration stands out for me as the star ..
Enjoyable,.. could leave at different stages but sometimes sat in the car listening instead of heading into the office to work due to excitement of pace in the action parts .
Will pop back to Harry Bosch series now and come back again at a later date for the third in this series (just to keep it fresh)
"A great New franchise"
One of the best new characters I have found, no more Will Robie coming over the horizon I was chuffed to find Victor
The tensions was palpable in the book and Tesseracts calmness was chilling
The readers tonality and acting skills made you feel like you were watching a drama
Victor the assassin, ice cold but with a heart
Thoroughly recommend to all
"Narrator excellent, but story not as good as first"
Great narrator, but story not quite as gripping and interesting as the first book, intrigued to see where it goes from here though.
As usual the story is so good and one can never guess how victor will manage to survive. great detail
"whilest doing his job, Victor. becomes a job."
Victor is good at what he does, that is until someone wants him dead. Its hard to stay alive when people want you desd, but thats what victod must do
vert very good. starting to get hooked on victor easy to follow and enjoyable
"OK ..but predictable."
this was an easy listen with a story that was very predictable from the start.
"Victor is back with a bang"
The first book was brilliant and this may even surpass it. So its looking like this is going to be a great series of books
What enemy when victors around he finishes them off.
"Anti hero supreme"
How Tom Wood makes his readers care so much about a hired killer is a mystery but we do care and I found myself rooting for Victor. I enjoyed seeing the different facets of the characters lives. The only bits I would cut down on are the exhaustive descriptions of the weapons' capabilities. These do tend to stall the story's momentum. However that is a small niggle really and it hasn't stopped me reading the second book straight after finishing the first! I'm looking forward to reading the next instalment in the near future...
A person with time to waste
No characterisation.If you want to read about killing after killing then this could be for you.
I'm nearly 70 and have read thousands of books. Although I now read much easier books I can say tha t this was one of the worst books I have ever read!
2nd book I've read by Tom Wood and again I couldn't stop listening to it, can't wait to read the next one
