Ci vuole un uomo crudele per dare la caccia al male. E se Victor l'Assassino un tempo aveva una bussola morale, quell'uomo è ormai morto e sepolto insieme alle sue numerose vittime. Eppure ci sono individui talmente crudeli che, per eliminarli, persino lui accetterebbe di mettere a rischio la propria vita per ragioni diverse dal denaro. È questo il caso di Milan Rados, ex comandante paramilitare serbo sfuggito al processo all'Aia e ora a capo di una rete criminale a Belgrado. L'intelligence britannica chiede a Victor di rintracciarlo e ucciderlo, in cambio di una sospensione di pena per i suoi recenti crimini. Ma Victor non è l'unico a desiderare la morte di Rados. Questa volta ha un alleato improbabile: una donna armena privata di tutto, persino della propria libertà, per ordine dell'ex comandante, anche lei disposta a qualunque cosa pur di vedere il sangue di quell'uomo riversarsi nell'Europa orientale...

This is the sixth in the Victor the Assassin series but the first for me. It worked reasonably well as a standalone. There is ambivalence and moral ambiguity in having a killer as the anti hero star of the story. Victor peddles his assassin expertise to those who will pay and here he is in the emplo Leggi tutto
I think it is well known from all my many friends that Tom Wood is one of my favourite authors, and Victor one of my favourite characters. So it is great to Victor The Assassin number 6 !! If the assassin known only as Victor once had a moral compass, it is long since buried, along with his many victi Leggi tutto
A Time To Die is an excellent novel.

Audiobook - 10:20 Hours - Narrator: Daniel Philpott 5.0 stars out 0f 5.0 An outstanding effort by Tom Wood to lift his creation, Victor the Assassin, to even great heights in "Time to Die". I have scored all my previous Victor books to date as four stars, and I am an absolute fan of the genre as writ Leggi tutto
Victor is not your run-of-the-mill assassin. He is an incredibly well-trained, well and broadly experienced, multilingual, fabulously talented, fearless and quite clever killer. Although Wood has recently written a couple of books that I thought were just okay, in my not-so-humble opinion, he has re Leggi tutto
The darkest venture into Victor’s world yet and certainly one of Wood’s finest! It is hard to imagine a more repulsive occupation than to kill for the highest bidder, is it? But is the hitman only known as Victor really an evil man and what happens if he is confronted with someone who has no morals a Leggi tutto
A masterpice as the rest of the series. 4th time reading this book barely a month since it s on the shelves. Simply adore this series.
Boom. Yep. Review to follow nearer paperback release.
Tom wood I officially absolve you from your past blunders (in the last two books in the 'victor series': 'Better off dead' and 'The darkest day') and I take this opportunity to apologise profusely for my lack of fair judgement when I criticised those two books. I would like to congratulate you for t Leggi tutto
