Inhaltsangabe

Forget James Bond. Forget Jason Bourne. Forget Jack Bauer. Meet Victor. He's an assassin - a man with no past and no surname. But when a Paris job goes spectacularly wrong, Victor finds himself running for his life across four continents, accompanied by a woman too beautiful to trust, pursued by enemies too powerful to escape.

Kritikerstimmen

"Jack Reacher meets Thomas Crown in this electrifying thriller." (Simon Kernick)
"A nonstop, breathless, trimmed-to-the-bone thriller with action sequences that are absolutely state-of-the-art. It's the best chase novel I've read in years." (Joseph Finder)
"An impressively intricate thriller.... The scenes are vivid and the plot revelations parcelled out at expert intervals.... Exciting." ( New Yorker)
"A superlative debut... Thriller fans will be eager to see more from this bright new talent." ( Publishers Weekly)

Too much shooting

If you like a lot of action, prolonged gunfights and many deaths (bad and good guys likewise), this is your book. To my taste it is too much action, while the story is somewhat simple and predictable. I also don't like that a realistic plot is often sacrificed for tbe sake of dramatic effects. However, the book is without a doubt thrilling. The speaker is excellent, having a variety of different colors in his voice and he accentuates any situation rather good.

Ein Thriller mit dem besonderen Kick

Die Stimme Daniel Philpotts und der Erzählstil von Tom Wood passen kongenial zusammen. Ich habe alle drei - bisher bei audible veröffentlichten - Bücher atemlos hintereinander gehört und manchmal auf dem Nachhauseweg einen Umweg eingeschlagen, um ein paar Minuten länger zuzuhören. Die Handlung an sich ist nicht unbedingt originell: Ein Auftragskiller, der quer durch Europa reist, um entweder zu töten oder zu flüchten. Alles schon einmal dagewesen. - Es sind der Erzählstil und die Stimme, die diesem Thriller den besonderen Kick verleihen.
Ich hoffe sehr, dass auch die weiteren Bücher bald bei audible erhältlich sind und wieder von Daniel Philpott gesprochen werden.

Who is James Bond? Victor is the best in his profession by far 🙌🏻!

When Tom Wood does a great job of creating this exciting story, Daniel Philpott does an even better job in delivering it!

My clear recommendation: listen to the books in English! In German the spirit of victor is not fully developing its potential!

Thus, it is a shame the German audible store does not offer the 4th, 5th, and 6th book of this fascinating man!
