The thriller genre’s favorite antihero, Victor the Assassin, is back in bookstores this fall in an all-new novel from Tom Wood.
Victor, who was last seen in Tom Wood’s The Final Hour, returns for his eighth go-around in Kill For Me, scheduled for publication in the U.S. on Tuesday, November 6th. Last August, Wood told The Real Book Spy that he had “a pretty strong idea about the next storyline,” and that he was “already playing around with scenes and characters.” Now we know that plot involves Victor facing off with a Guatemalan cartel.

Lethal assassin Victor lands in the middle of a Guatemalan cartel war in the latest nonstop thriller from the international bestselling author of The Final Hour.
Victor is the killer who always delivers…for the right price. And Heloise Espinosa, patron of Guatemala’s largest cartel, is ready and willing to pay him just that to eliminate the competition–her sister. Heloise has been battling Maria for control of the cartel in an endless and bloody war. Now Victor decides who survives. An easy job if it weren’t for the sudden target on his back.
Victor’s not the only one on the hunt. Someone else has Maria in their crosshairs and will do anything to get the kill. In the middle of cartel territory with enemies closing in from all sides, Victor must decide where to put the bullet before one is placed in his head. His only chance at survival is to team up with the one person who may be as deadly as he is. . .
Kill For Me doesn’t come out (in paperback) until November, but Tom Wood’s next novel is available for pre-order here, or anywhere else books are sold.
