Victor is the ultimate predator. He surfaces to kill, then disappears into thin air. But he’s a disposable commodity for the powerful people he works for–both the good guys and the bad. And no one has his back. Especially now that doing black bag jobs for the CIA has put a target on his head…


Antonio Alvarez, a high-ranking US intelligence official, is determined to clean house and find the legendary killer who slipped away from him during an operation in Paris. There’s only one person Victor can turn to for help: a lethal female assassin whose life he once saved. And now Victor wants her to return the favor–by killing him….

In The Darkest Day, Victor ran across another assassin, one who was as beautiful as she was deadly. And Victor kills her but with just once chance for her to survive. She survives. She not only survives Victor, but she survives the amorphous Company that wants her dead. So when Victor needs to die, to get all the Alphabets off his back, he knows she can handle it.

Meanwhile, a new, powerful hotshot Homeland Security Director (man, I HATE Homeland Security. We did not need yet another powerful governmental agency destroying our rights and freedoms in the name of safety. And they are as rapacious about power as the now politically weaponized FBI and as crooked as the CIA that has spied on its own citizens) wants Victor dead, even without knowing exactly who Victor is.

This was a tight rope of a story. Miss Assassin recovery and surviving to Victor being hounded to the inevitable massive explosion that Victor hopes will convince his enemies that he is dead. And he still walks away from Miss Assassin. But. He doesn’t kill her this time. That was a huuuuge step towards Victor being an actual human 🙂 But no worries, he still tells her that if he sees her again they are enemies and he will kill her. Now THAT’S the Victor I’ve come to know and love, hahahaa. What a guy.

I really like this no holds barred action series. While Victor is completely immoral (he might say he’s amoral, but killing other people is immoral by even the most hardened and jaded of criminals standards), he’s in the business of killing other immoral people. Evil devours itself. That is its nature after all.

    1. You’re not very deadly there, Roly Poly. Eating buckets of maple syrup will do that to you.
      So I can only assume the first part of your statement isn’t true either.
      I’m open to being proven wrong, as long as a logical argument is given.
