Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Set in 1998, Cain's solid sequel to his debut, The Accident Man (2008), finds assassin Samuel Carver recovering in a private Swiss hospital from being brutally tortured. Unable to remember who he is or what he's done in the past, he's being cared for by his girlfriend, Alix Petrova, a former Russian spy. Meanwhile, oilman Waylon McCabe, who's dying of cancer, decides he must bring on nuclear Armageddon so he can ascend to heaven in the Rapture. Lt. Gen. Kurt Vermulen has been trying to alert the U.S. government to the dangers of a small terrorist group known as al Qaeda, but no one will listen except the evil McCabe, who soon has the gullible Vermulen attempting to snag one of about a hundred suitcase nukes the Russians have secreted around the world. Eventually, Carver comes to his senses and sets out to find Alix, who's left his bedside on her old bosses' orders to seduce Vermulen. Most thriller fans will enjoy this roller-coaster action adventure ride. (Mar.)

From Booklist

The pseudonymous Cain doesn’t shrink from tackling big topics. In the initial novel in this series, The Accident Man (2008), he hypothesized an explanation for the death of Princess Diana. Here, he gins up a demented, born-again Texas oil billionaire determined to incite Armageddon via a Russian suitcase nuke: Christians vs. Muslims. Samuel Carver, the Accident Man, who once before failed to kill the rapacious Texan, is a shattered husk in a Swiss sanatorium, but he must rouse himself to save the world—and rescue his lover, former KGB agent Alexandra Petrova. No Survivors is uneven. Action sequences are vividly written. Carver’s use of common household products to single-handedly overwhelm a houseful of Georgian gangsters or bring down a corporate jet sounds plausible, and these scenes make hugely entertaining set pieces. In addition, the descriptions of locales as diverse as Kosovo, Geneva, and the Côte d’Azur seem knowing. But character development is less skillful, and the apocalyptic plot, while essentially plausible, seems, well, too Bondian. Even so, there is plenty to like here for action-oriented thriller fans. --Thomas Gaughan

If you have read THE ACCIDENT MAN by Tom Cain, feel free to skip the next sentence if you like. If you haven't had that pleasure, however, you might want to buy a copy along with NO SURVIVORS, the riveting and most worthy sequel, block off a weekend and read both of them in one long pleasurable gulp.

After a quick but important prologue, NO SURVIVORS picks up precisely where THE ACCIDENT MAN left off --- in September 1997, with Samuel Carver's mind and body shattered as the result of the significant injuries he incurred near the book's conclusion. For the unfamiliar, Carver is the "accident man" of the title, an assassin for hire who is skilled in ushering a specific target down along the road of death. He is best known for making the demise of his targets appear to be accidents; it is on his most notorious assignment that he met Alix Petrova, his devoted lover, who herself is a former Russian spy. Carver, though, may never return to his former trade, or to any trade for that matter. At the beginning of NO SURVIVORS he is but a husk of the man he was, a physical and psychological wreck trapped in his own body, minimally recuperating over a three-month period in a Swiss sanitarium.

But when Petrova is forced back to work with her former employers, it, along with an assassination attempt, jolts Carver back to life and toward a crossroads that will eventually bring him to an unforeseen reunion with Petrova. It seems the Russians have seeded the world with over 100 nuclear "suitcase bombs," and a list of the locations and codes for the bombs has fallen into the wrong hands. Waylon McCabe, a Texas billionaire, wants the list to locate and procure one of the bombs in order to ignite a cataclysm that in turn will hasten the Final Days. He enlists Kurt Vermulen for this quest.

Although Tom Cain's 'No Survivor's' is a freestanding work of it's own, I suggest that you start with The Accident Man first, to really get the full effect from the writer of this jam-packed action series. Not only will reading TAM allow the characters to evolve before your very eyes, but the entire concept of the first novel will make you sit up and think about things.

Then on to No Survivor's...this book takes up where TAM leaves off and is a real page turner, from start to finish. I can't WAIT for the third book!

What lengths Samuel Carver will go to to save his girl and take out the bad guys!

The Accident Man is even more Bourne-esque in this sequel that even finds him suffering from memory loss. There are better action set-pieces this time around, and even if the plot concerns the end of the world, things are more palatable and entertaining without the creepy premise of the first book. In fact, this series can't seem to decide if it's real-world gritty or more light-hearted. If it's the former, than let's let up on some of the romantic relationship subplot going forward.

Well it wasn't as action packed as the first one but just as thrilling. It was interesting to see Carver go from insane news back to killing machine. The face off between Alix and Carver was really entertaining. The finale was decent but the confrontation between Carver and the helicopter was awesome and would love to see it on-screen.

Really enjoyed it as much as the first one. Really liked the way he brought some of the history from the first book into this one, it made it very easy for someone who had not read the first book to understand things. Just a great read, just could not put it down.
