Forget James Bond. Forget Jason Bourne. Forget Jack Bauer. Meet Victor. He's an assassin - a man with no past and no surname. But when a Paris job goes spectacularly wrong, Victor finds himself running for his life across four continents, accompanied by a woman too beautiful to trust, pursued by enemies too powerful to escape.

What made the experience of listening to The Hunter the most enjoyable?

Tom Wood appears to have struck the perfect balance between detail, realism and story. This is a superbly written novel. The story is a little Dexter-like: you can't help but loving the bad guy. I have already downloaded the next book in the series, I just hope Tom keeps them coming!
