For years, two sisters have vied for the turf of their dead crime boss father. Across the streets of Guatemala City, bodies have piled up; the US Drug Enforcement Agency, operating far from its own borders, is powerless to stop the fighting.

But now one sister has a weapon that could finally win the war - a cold, amoral hitman known, fittingly, as 'Victor'.

Freed from previous employers the CIA and MI6, Victor is a killer for-hire whose sense of self-preservation trumps all else. Yet as betrayal and counter-betrayal unspool in the vicious family feud, Victor finds himself at the centre of a storm even he could be powerless to stop.

Tom Wood is a full-time writer born in Burton-on-Trent who now lives in London. After a stint as freelance editor and film-maker, he completed his first novel, The Hunter, which was an instant bestseller and introduced readers to a genuine antihero, Victor, an assassin with a purely logical view on life and whose morals are deeply questionable. Like Victor, Tom is passionate about physical sport, being both a huge boxing fan and practising Krav Maga martial arts, which has seen him sustain a number of injuries. He has not, however, ever killed anyone.

I really, really enjoyed this story - what a fantastic plot line! I will admit that this is the first book I have read by this author and I can be 100% honest when I say it certainly won't be my last * Donna's Book Blog * I would recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of James Patterson, Lee Child, and Jo Nesbo. This thrilling adventure is one heck of a ride * Books Beyond the Story (blog) * Kill For Me is a fast paced thriller that grabbed me from the start. Tom Wood is fast becoming a favourite author of mine as his books are incredibly readable and gripping * Over The Rainbow (Blog) * I would recommend Kill For Me to every thriller/action genre reader because they won't regret picking this book up. Tom Wood will take you on a thrilling rollercoaster of a ride * Breathing Through Pages (blog) * Kill For Me is just a really great book like those before it. Genuinely as a reader you can't ask for more than that. Pick up any one and you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended * Liz Loves Books (blog) * Very exciting, and I recommend it if you are a fan of hitman novels, and also if you enjoy spy novels and espionage (I felt elements of John le Carre too) * Buttercup Review (blog) * A gritty, fast-paced and gripping read. One to read if you like your thrillers hard hitting, hot and humid and your characters emotionally and professionally complex * The Book Trail (blog) * I'm a fan of Tom Wood's full-throttle capers featuring enigmatic hitman Victor, a cool killer who lives in the shadows and doesn't ever trust anybody who hires him. He's like Jack Reacher with ice in his veins, and Wood's writing toolbox has much of the same high-end equipment as Lee Child's... It's a blast * Peterborough Evening Telegraph * There are thousands of thrillers you could pick up for your next read. Make the decision easier, get this one * Weekend Sport *
