Victor, a hitman without a conscience protects a human rights lawyer in Better Off Dead, the BBC Radio 2 Simon Mayo Book Club pick.

A hitman must be anonymous, amoral… and alone

Victor is the face in the crowd you don’t see, a perfect assassin with nothing to live for.

But when an old friend turns to him for help, he finds he can’t refuse. For once his objective isn’t to kill, but to protect.

Hunted through the streets of London by ruthless enemies, Victor needs to be more than just a bodyguard… but his every move leads danger closer to the very person he’s vowed to defend.

Published in the US as No Tomorrow.


Hooking me in from the very first page, author Tom Wood has crafted a novel with terrific pace, a contemporary, gritty feel and, rather unexpected for a novel whose protagonist is an assassin, a real depth of heart
