Accident Man by Tom Cain
Book DescriptionMeet the Accident Man, Samuel Carver. Carver is a good guy who makes bad things happen to bad people. Drug-baron's helicopter develops mechanical failure mid-flight: reason being Samuel Carver. Terrorist blown-up in his own bomb factory: again the reason being Samuel Carver. Ex-SAS, now freelance mercenary he is the frontline weapon of the 'Consortium', a black-ops British government outfit, or is it? Carver is called to do a hit at very short notice. Do this job for us and be paid very well. Refuse and you better run and hide. He believes the target to be a high-ranking Pakistani terrorist. The job is to organise a car crash in a Paris underpass. But Carver is being set up. When he discovers the real identity of his target, and more importantly the identity of the target's female companion, he knows one thing - his life is over. This is a secret too big to let him live, unless he can track down the real villains before they get to him. Combining the plotting of Robert Ludlum, with the pace and tension of Frederick Forsyth, Tom Cain is a major new thriller writer and "The Accident Man" is a classic in the making and launches Samuel Carver straight into the top rank of action heroes.

Carver, Paperback (July 2012)» View all books by Tom Cain
The collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008 sent shockwaves around the financial world. Theories abound as to the cause of the collapse - the sub-prime bubble, bad management, even good old fashioned greed. But what if it was none of the above. Samuel Carver is about to find himself on the biggest mission of his life.
US Kirkus Review » Who killed the people's princess? Could be this debut novel's hard-hitting assassin for hire.Pseudonymous author Cain, a British journalist, crafts a disarming, exhilarating thriller that conjectures how the car crash that killed Princess Diana, never directly named here, might have been set up. Cain's protagonist Samuel Carver is an old-school S.O.B., a tightly wound former soldier who orchestrates fatal mishaps for the world's cutthroats. A killer with standards, he's happy to, say, eliminate an Albanian people-trafficker by helicopter sabotage, but balks at wasting a Pakistani terrorist because the hit includes the power broker's girlfriend. Pressed by his shadowy handler Max, Carver agrees to arrange yet another death, this time in the Pont de l'Alma Tunnel. After fulfilling his mission, he escapes only to find that he's been hung out to dry. When Carver is cornered by a brutal Russian counterpart named Grigori Kursk, he shoots first and snatches his comely associate Alix Petrova so he can ask questions later. Now the Russians, the British Secret Service and Kursk all want Carver's head. Cain writes with steely confidence, delivering rousing action sequences ranging from a chase through the sewers of Paris to a torturous denouement straight out of Casino Royale. What holds it all together is the book's flawed but convincing hero - a man gripped equally by lust, guilt, greed and wrath. "Who's to say who's good or bad," he muses. When the bullets are flying and the writing is this taut, it doesn't much matter.A first-rate, breakneck adventure. (Kirkus Reviews)
