Publisher's Summary

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.

Action packed

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.

The 2nd 'Victor' book .. almost as good as the 1st

Have you listened to any of Daniel Philpott’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes. Another great performance, demonstrating what a talented narrator can add to the enjoyment of audio books

Any additional comments?

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.

Enjoyable Follow up from The Hunter

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)

Very listenable.

Firstly, the narrator is excellent! Being Australian I can't cop many American accents for being to twangy and drawling and find the same with most Australian narrators. I often will only buy bbc or public school broadcasters for their clarity, roundedness and non-invasive assault on my slightly deaf eardrums.

That said the author excels at descriptive, hugely deadly combat scenarios and this is a large part of the book. Eventually this will get old but at book 2, there is still a long way to go.

Character development is slow but fine by me and I like the fact that there is little of anyone's feminine side on display.

A book for blokes blokes and the sheila's can have their rock crystals and astrology verve!

A good read.

Action packed and suspenseful.

This is the second book I have read in the series and enjoyed it immensely. It is fast paced and action packed. Daniel Philpotts narration is slowly staying to grow on me as I get into the Victor the Assassin's character. Very enjoyable book.

A great New franchise

Where does The Enemy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best new characters I have found, no more Will Robie coming over the horizon I was chuffed to find Victor

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Enemy?

The tensions was palpable in the book and Tesseracts calmness was chilling

What does Daniel Philpott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The readers tonality and acting skills made you feel like you were watching a drama

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Victor the assassin, ice cold but with a heart

Any additional comments?

Thoroughly recommend to all

Repetitive

A good reading, but a somewhat repetitive storyline.
I'm sure all these books are stand alone excellent, but after one or two there seems nothing to distinguish one from another.

Too much focus on the guns used for me

The storyline and lead character is fine - just gets a bit lost in the amount of detail given on basically everyone's choice of firearms.

afterthoughts from 2 novels...

Strange - some characters from the first novel lack the certain flow and integrity; will give it a last go in the 3rd novel to see what direction author leads the main actors.

As entertaining as the first book.

Second confirmation that Victor 'the 1 man army' is a double hard bastard. If you like action this is for you.

Back on track!

So glad the excitement of a good tale has returned Victor to quality Wood writing! Lots of intrigue, sub-plots and international agencies to lend to a gripping story. We even see a caring side to the enigmatic assassin. Great stuff!
