If Princess Diana had been murdered, what sort of man would have killed her? Maybe one who made accidents happen. Maybe one who didn't realize who he was murdering..
The pseudonymous Cain, a British journalist, has come up with a clever premise for his first novel. One summer night in 1997, Samuel Carver, an extremely capable assassin who only targets bad guys, is in a Paris tunnel ready to make a hit. He causes a speeding black Mercedes to smash into a stone pillar, leaving the car's principal passenger, a dangerous terrorist, he's been told, undoubtedly dead. Moments later, Carver himself is on the run from a Russian thug. Only after escaping the Russian does Carver realize he's caused the death of Princess Diana. Carver vows revenge on those who set him up. A number of spy organizations are involved as well as several intermediaries, all of whom Carver must work his way through before finding who's behind the conspiracy. A likable hero and nicely detailed action help offset a predictable and at times overwrought romance between Carver and the Russian's female accomplice. Hopefully, Cain will keep the mayhem and soft-pedal the love interest in his next Samuel Carver thriller. (Feb.)
Review “Audacious, authentic, full of tension and tradecraft . . . Maybe it’s true and maybe it isn’t, but either way it’s a great thriller read. I loved it.” —Lee Child
“This is the best first thriller I have read since The Day of the Jackal, and that was a long time ago. With one mighty bound Tom Cain has vaulted over Archer and Grisham and stands close on Frederick Forsyth’s tail.” —Wilbur Smith
