A hitman must be anonymous, amoral . . . and alone.
Victor is the face in the crowd you don't see, a perfect assassin with nothing to live for.
But when an old friend turns to him for help, he finds he can't refuse. For once his objective isn't to kill, but to protect.
Hunted through the streets of London by ruthless enemies, Victor needs to be more than just a bodyguard... but his every move leads danger closer to the very person he's vowed to defend.
Tom Wood is a full-time writer born in Burton-on-Trent who now lives in London. After a stint as freelance editor and film-maker, he completed his first novel, The Hunter, which was an instant bestseller and introduced readers to a genuine antihero, Victor, an assassin with a purely logical view on life and whose morals are deeply questionable. Like Victor, Tom is passionate about physical sport, being both a huge boxing fan and practising Krav Maga martial arts, which has seen him sustain a number of injuries. He has not, however, ever killed anyone.
Tom also publishes standalone psychological thrillers, including A Knock at the Door.
