Breathlessly paced, international in scope, and featuring one of the most intriguing heroes in recent fiction, Tom Cain's smashing debut surprises the reader at every turn. A thriller that explores the secret of Princess Diana's death, The Accident Man imagines the man who may have killed her. For a certain sum of money, Samuel Carver can arrange a death. A ruptured gas line, an automobile crash, a fall from a window-anything can be made to look like an accident. But when Carver is set up, betrayed, and pursued by the very forces that hired him, he must execute his most daring feat yet.

    " Full of action, but so far, the characters are a bit flat and stock. Fun to read, but I'm hoping Cain adds some depth to the characters. "

    " Great story line.
    Kept me entertained right from the start.
    I was a little dissappointed with the ending though. All the way through he was the toughest of the tough and seemed to "break" relatively easily (haha, not sure how long I would last being tortured)! "
