Detective David Johansen of the Sunlight City Police was an expert in weird cases. When his boss brought him a surveillance tape from a small diner of a woman escaping from a man with a gun, he knew he had to take the case. Johansen recognized the man with the gun. The gunman went by many names and could be connected to many murders. The assassin had been killed and the body claimed on several occasions. The man looked like Johansen's father who died in Iraq 2003. Mona managed to escape her employer. She knew he would send Victor to murder her. Josef Hirigawa was extremely wealthy but money meant little to him; he craved power; he wanted to be God. Victor was part of a group of Assassins known as the Black Cats. Victor was considered the greatest and known as the Alpha Cat. Sunlight City was on an island where corporates made the rules, offered bribes and sent out assassins. There were few Christians in the city; most of the Reverends had left town quite some time before, leaving only Father Joshua.
"Victor" is an exciting fast-paced thriller. I attempted to be a bit vague in my review of this book for it would be very easy to give away too much information and spoil this great read for others. "Victor" has a strong Christian undertone which does not detract from the plot. There is a controversial topic broached in this tale. The author handled it very well, successfully demonstrating the danger of some scientific advancement. Author Tony Ross’s plot grabbed my attention from the very first chapter. The last few chapters were my favorite part of this book. Ross managed to keep the action going throughout the whole tale. The ending was magnificent. I found the interconnection of Victor, David and Mona to be fascinating. Watching Victor discover his true identity was mesmerizing. Tony Ross is a talented author not afraid to allow his opinions and beliefs to shine through his art. I look forward to more books by this author.
