Having voted Tom Wood's previous book into the Crimesquad Top Ten for 2011, there was a heightened sense of excitement in my household when 'The Enemy' dropped through my door. Not once was I disappointed as I raced my way through this book. From start to finish there is gunplay, action, intrigue and more than enough twists to keep the reader guessing. Victor is slowly and steadily being fleshed out by Wood into one of the stars of the action thriller. The highly skilled assassin would give Reacher, Hunter or Fox a real run for their money. He also has a fine brain as well as a range of murderous skills. Adrianna does a fine job of humanising Victor with her presence and the opposing forces of Kasakov, Clarke, and Yarmout all add to the novel in different ways. With short sharp sentences Wood drives the novel forward at an ever escalating pace until the final scene which would be worthy of inclusion in any of this summer's action blockbuster movies. Throughout the novel the style of writing is very visual and cinematic. The plot is basically straightforward but has been given layers and twists to elevate the story and keep the reader turning those pages. All in all 'The Enemy' is a first class action thriller which will have readers on the edge of their seats.
