Publisher's Summary

Victor is the perfect killer. He has no past. He will stop at nothing. And he can find you anywhere. In sweltering Algiers, ultra-efficient hitman Victor executes a fellow assassin. But when the CIA comes calling, Victor must pose as his victim to identify the dead man's next mark--a mission that takes him across Europe to the bloody streets of Rome.

Working alongside a group of vicious mercenaries, Victor faces an impossible choice: to do what's right or to sacrifice the only thing he cares about: his life.

Full of white-hot tension and edge-of-the-seat action, The Game is the thrilling follow-up to The Hunter and The Enemy.

3rd in the series and Wood delivers again

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Most definitely. However, I would recommended reading (listening to) the early books first. While it isn't essential, knowing the back story will certainly add to the enjoyment.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's never practical for me to find 10 hours plus to listen in one sitting but the story line certainly encouraged me to keep going back to the book whenever possible

Great story and narration

A bit less actipn in this book as some of the other Victor books with more intrigue and layers to the story but well narrated (love the different voices Daniel Philpot assigns each character). A story that I listened to every chance I got and thoroughly enjoyed.

easily as good as the first 2 books.
brilliantly read by the narrator who's grasp of different characters tones and accents was almost as good as the story.

Great story, with various threads coming together in a potentially explosive finale. Another side of Victor's compassion emerges. Really enjoyed the narrator's quality performance again.

On a par with Peter May, Peter James and Kerry Wilkinson

A new author for me. I loved the story with its climaxes where the protagonist seems doomed. Totally believable twists and turns. Exciting and I couldn't stop listening.
