Editoral Review

The Hunter by Tom Wood is a thrilling novel that captivates readers with its fast-paced action and complex characters. Wood is a well-known author in the crime and thriller genres, and The Hunter is a testament to his prowess in this area.

The novel follows the story of a professional assassin named Victor, who works for a shadowy organization killing people for money. Despite his job, Victor is a complex character with a moral code that sets him apart from the other assassins.

His unique perspective on the world, coupled with his impeccable skills, makes him an unforgettable character. The Hunter takes place in different locations around the world, from Paris to New York to Moscow, making for a diverse setting that keeps readers engaged.

The tension-building is exceptional, and the plot twists are surprising but not so far-fetched that they detract from the story’s believability. Wood’s writing style is engaging and well-suited for the genre.

He has a talent for drawing readers into the story and keeping them hooked. The novel’s pacing is spot-on, making it hard to put the book down.

The character development is excellent, particularly for Victor. Wood expertly delves into Victor’s psyche, giving us insights into his motivations, fears, and desires.

Victor’s moral code is a fascinating aspect of the story, and it adds a layer of complexity to an already intriguing character. While The Hunter is a stand-alone novel, it has a similar feel to other popular thrillers such as The Bourne Identity or Jack Reacher series.

However, Wood’s unique take on the assassin character sets this book apart from others in the genre. One minor criticism of The Hunter is that the supporting characters could have been developed further.

While they serve their roles in the story adequately, they feel somewhat one-dimensional at times. Overall, The Hunter is a must-read for fans of the crime and thriller genres.

It has everything readers could want, from action to intrigue to excellent characters. Tom Wood’s writing is exceptional, and this book is a testament to his mastery of the craft.

So, if you’re looking for a thrilling read that will keep you hooked until the very end, give The Hunter a chance. You won’t be disappointed.
