If Princess Diana had been murdered, what sort of man would have killed her?
Breathlessly paced and featuring one of the most intriguing heroes in recent fiction, Tom Cain's The Accident Man
surprises the reader at every turn. For a certain sum of money, Samuel
Carver will arrange a death. A ruptured gas line, an automobile crash,
a fall from a window; anything can look like an accident. But when
Carver is to carry out a job in a tunnel in Paris, and when the job
goes wrong for him, and when he is pursued by the very forces that
hired him, Carver must execute his most daring feat yet. A thriller of
the grandest and most exhilarating sort, The Accident Man races
above and below the streets of Paris, across Europe, and through storms
at sea. It is also a startling introduction to a hero engaged in acts
of moral violence. With the dissolution of world powers, with
everything and anything for sale, how does one justify death? Samuel
Carver—a clouded man of determined action—will come to understand the
prices to be paid. Fans of James Bond, the Jason Bourne films, and Lee
Child will thrill at Samuel Carver's violent and uncertain world.
