Hired to orchestrate a fatal accident in a Paris tunnel, hired killer Samuel Carver finds himself targeted by the forces that hired him when the job goes terribly wrong, a circumstance that compels him to execute the most daring feat of his career. A first novel. 40,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
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.

A most interesting plot and premise - - it is fiction, right? Although, the Killer Elite, by Ranulph Fiennes, is supposed to be nonfiction, and it appears to run along similar lines? [From being a detailed global news junkie, and financial news junkie, I would suggest that Accident Man is closer to nonfiction, while Fiennes' Killer Elite is closer to fictional.]
