A Quiet Man by Tom  Wood
"Another excellent novel of action and suspense by Tom Wood, Victor is an assassin with scruples; a decent man in a world filled with reprehensible figures. He's now on the hunt for a Chicago crime boss when he makes the fleeting acquaintance of a spe" Read more of this review »
A Quiet Man by Tom  Wood
"I don't often go 5 stars, but Victor always does it for me. This one didn't disappoint.

Victor has been around for over ten years and I don't detect much aging in his character. That's OK. Some writers age them like Grafton, Connelly and Paretsky. Som" Read more of this review »

"I just love this series…if you like nonstop action and antiheroes you’ll love Victor the assassin. This one is a tad on the violent side but definitely an enjoyable read!"

Chris Whittaker's previous book, We Begin at the End, is one of my favourite novels of all time. I'm not really a YA reader but the premise to The Forevers is so ingeniously simple I couldn't wait to read it. Luckily, I got my grubby fingers on the f ...more

Hey Daniel, great to have you as a fan but I'm afraid I'm not currently reading any similar series. In fact, I've tried to stay away from anything like my own writing for quite a while now. However, I know I share a lot of readers with Mark Greaney a See Full Answer

No one write books like Will Carver, and Nothing Important Happened Today sees him redefine the crime novel from the ground up. Utterly original and compelling, this is a haunting look at multiple lives brought together in the most harrowing of ways.

More of Tom's books…
“Victor waited until Ozols had passed out of the light before squeezing the trigger with smooth, even pressure. Suppressed gunshots interrupted the early morning stillness. Ozols was hit in the sternum, twice in rapid succession. The bullets were low powered, subsonic 5.7 mm, but larger rounds could have been no more fatal. Copper-encased lead tore through skin, bone, and heart before lodging side by side between vertebrae. Ozols collapsed backward, hitting the ground with a dull thud, arms outstretched, head rolling to one side. Victor melted out of the darkness and took a measured step forward. He angled the FN Five-seveN and put a bullet through Ozols’s temple. He was already dead, but in Victor’s opinion there was no such thing as overkill.”
Tom Wood, The Hunter

“Funny, because the way I see it, the more friends I have, the better I’m doing at life.” “Ah,” Victor said, “but friends can be bought. Enemies are always earned.”
Tom Wood, A Time To Die

“No one was infallible, but mistakes had to be acknowledged and absorbed with a conscious self-examination if they were to become useful experience and not remain as failure.”
Tom Wood, A Time To Die
