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 will surprise you at every turn.

Exciting…no punches pulled (Choice)
To reveal more, particularly details of a hair-raising climax, would be to destroy the reader’s enjoyment, but like the rest of this first-class piece of action work, it’s ingenious and delivered with all the subtlety of a kick in the teeth. The Game is a well-plotted, well-written, brutal, bloody, but hugely enjoyable addition to a long tradition of action thrillers, the ideal book to take on holiday with you. (Crime Review)
Truly mesmerizing . . . a powerful, forward-driving plot and lots of brutality. I loved it. (Mystery People)
This is a fast moving, well written thriller which is worth more than just being stuck in a suitcase as something to read on holiday if the weather is bad (Robin’s Reviews)
An excellent storyline, great characters and a narrative flow to be envied, Tom Wood has succeeded in writing a terrific thriller. More please sir! (Milo Rambles)
