Waiting on Wednesday - The Hunter by Tom Wood

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection from me is:


The Hunter by Tom Wood

I love reading thrillers, the kind that make you hide behind the sofa with one eye shut, but end with you thinking you know the ending - until the very last bit when you find you're way off base.

Authors like Lee Child, Harlan Coben and Cat Connor are on the top of my scoreboard and are my favourite authors in this genre, so when I read a write up about the style of this debut Brit author's book, it sounded too good to miss. (Another one for the British Author Challenge - yey!)

Book Synopsis:
'Victor is an assassin - a man with no past and no surname. But when a Paris job goes spectacularly wrong, Victor finds himself running for his life across four continents, accompanied by a woman too beautiful to trust, pursued by enemies too powerful to escape. Blazing with suspense, romance, and white-hot action, The Hunter is the thriller of the year.' 

I'm looking forward to this with relish.  Shame it's release is so far away, being in May 2011 in the UK, but it's something to look forward to, and sounds like it's worth the wait.

Hi, Michelle! I came over from Misha's blog.

I 100% agree with this description of my favorite thrillers:
