The Final Hour

Dying didn’t hurt, but coming back to life sure did.

Tom Wood
The Final Hour


Publisher’s Synopsis:
Former CIA agent Antonio Alvarez has been tracking a vicious murderer for years, a nameless hitman responsible for numerous homicides.

Once, the Agency deflected him away from his search, but now promotion has given him a second chance to right the past.

Only problem is, the killer has vanished. 

Thousands of miles away, the professional known as Victor has stopped working – recently he began to care; he made mistakes. But there’s another assassin, Raven, who needs his help – and she is hard to refuse . . . 

Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives, not by chapter, but clearly defined.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
The Final Hour is the 7th Victor the Assassin book by Tom Wood. There are a lot of references to previous books in this one and the series is best enjoyed in order.

Wood brought back Raven!!!! I love, love, love Victor and all these books. However, I simply adore the interplay between these two. It makes for a fantastic story. Or six. Because holy moly did Wood give backstories and smaller incidents to create an intense last third that kept me giving the stink eye to anyone who dared ask me to pause the audio. I enjoy their banter, how they work together, how they fight, and that the fact still remains… neither truly trusts the other.

Yet Victor & Raven make a pact to work together as long as it serves both their interests. With enemies coming at them from all directions it does. Until it doesn’t.

There’s even more depth and insight as we’re treated to Alvarez’s perspective on what it’s like to hunt for Victor. How Victor has alliances and enemies and it’s often difficult to tell them apart.

So good. I’m ready for even more Victor in Kill for Me.

Rob Shapiro continues to be a fantastic match for Wood’s writing. Wood has so many personalities, accents, & emotions and Shapiro does justice to them all. I just love listening to these books.
