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…

Lexi’s Thoughts:
Victor is on his own, taking jobs as he wants, and his next one puts him between two lethal sisters at the center of the Guatemalan cartel. Get ready for twisting-turning-action that will keep you reading into the night.

This book starts at an interesting place. Victor is highly skilled but for the first time, free. At least in the sense that his old employers and his old world are concerned since they believe he’s dead. So what is a gifted killer to do? Take on hits that he thinks are worth his time. And when Heloise, the frightening woman who runs Guatemala’s biggest cartel, comes to him with a contract, he accepts. 

And so Victor is brought into the center of a sibling war that’s bloody, and hot, and will make you feel like you are in Guatemala City yourself. This is book 8 in the series but it is such a well written thriller, you’ll step right into Victor’s world and not miss a beat. There are some references to previous characters and instances but nothing that would trip you up if you haven’t read them. If you find Victor hard to stomach right away, keep going. His toughened exterior is there for a reason and he changes as a character throughout the book. 

If you’re in the mood for a thriller series, one that isn’t simply one book repeating itself, check out the Victor the Assassin series.
