Publisher's Summary

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 is the thrilling follow-up to The Hunter and The Enemy.

    "On a par with Peter May, Peter James and Kerry Wilkinson"

    A new author for me. I loved the story with its climaxes where the protagonist seems doomed. Totally believable twists and turns. Exciting and I couldn't stop listening.

    "Another great Victor story"

    Couldn't stop listening to Mr Woods story about Victor, staying awake late in to the night, absolute brilliant writing didn't want the story to end, it's late as I write this but can't wait to listen to Book 4 of the Victor storyline....hope he doesn't die at the end. I love how the story was narrated, great it's been the same person from the beginning .... you did a fantastic job Mr Philpot, loved hearing your voice as Victor, can't wait to hear you again in book 4 .... Better Of Dead.

    Story
    "Ian Fleming Eat Your Heart Out"
    If you could sum up The Game in three words, what would they be?

    Tense, Fast, Deadly


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Game?

    Last page where he is apparently caught weaponless.


    What about Daniel Philpott’s performance did you like?

    He IS the story. Cannot fault him.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Satisfaction

    Any additional comments?

    Unusually with this series I find myself buying each book after the other, spending all my time absolutely engrossed and wanting more and more each time without a break in the series with another book.

    Victor is quite simply one of my favourite fiction characters, and in this book he doesn't disappoint me. On to the next in the series, and possibly more of Tom Wood. This is one of the best fictional series I have come across!

    "Simply the best"
    Where does The Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks at the top (by quite a margin), along with the other Victor books


    What other book might you compare The Game to, and why?

    The woodcutter. Another super efficient and dangerous character whom one immediately loves (and believes)


    What does Daniel Philpott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Unfair question. I have only listened to it. I wouldn't want it read to me by anyone else.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Loads of emotion all the time


    Any additional comments?

    Tom Wood and his Victor are really the best that I have come across. I would desperately like to find other books which manage the same level.I have tried but so far failed.Thank you Tom but not sure if you have actually done me a disservice, as I am no longer satisfied with what's left
