Description

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.

Review quote

aA thrill-a-minute debut. . . . Cain gets high marks for a creative yet easily believable story line that only adds fuel to the fire about what really happened to Diana.a
a"USA Today"
aAn adrenaline-fueled thriller that doesnat stoop to prurient gimmicks. . . . Cain keeps the scenery breathtaking and the action heart-stopping.a
a"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
aThis is the best first thriller I have read since "The Day of the Jackal," and that was a long time ago. With one mighty bound, Tom Cain has vaulted over Archer and Grisham and stands close on Fredrick Forsythas tail.a

About Tom Cain

Tom Cain is the pseudonym of an award-winning journalist, with 25 years' experience working for Fleet Street newspapers, as well as major magazines in Britain and the US. During the course of his career he has conducted in-depth interviews with senior politicians, billionaire entrepreneurs, Olympic athletes, movie stars, supermodels and rock legends. He has investigated financial scandals on Wall Street, studio intrigues in Hollywood and corrupt sports stars in Britain. The first Western journalist to cross the border into Serbia after the US bombing campaign of 1999, he has lived in Moscow, Washington, D.C. and Havana, Cuba. He edited four magazines, published over a dozen books, wrote film-scripts and was translated into some 20 languages, before beginning the 'Accident Man' series of thrillers. No Survivors continues the story of Samuel Carver, a former British special forces officer who now 'does very bad things to even worse people.' Tom Cain lives with his family in Sussex, England. In his spare time he is a fanatical supporter of West Ham United FC and the Washington Redskins; a fan of 24, Life on Mars, Flashman, Elmore Leonard, Oldboy and The Black Book; a lousy guitarist but a half-decent singer; and an enthusiastic, but unsubtle gardener.

Canadian readers may be interested to hear that Tom Cain is the brother-in-law of Steven Erikson, the Vancouver-based author of the 'Mazalan Book of the Fallen' series of fantasy novels.
