Booklist Review: "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.--Gaughan, Thomas Copyright 2009 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "John Lee brings a strong sense of character and place to Cain's sequel to his acclaimed 2008 thriller, The Accident Man. In this installment, assassin Samuel Carver is in a sanitarium, having suffered life-threatening injuries while saving his girlfriend, former Russian agent Alix Petrova, from her former handlers. Nearly catatonic and amnesiac, Carver uses his considerable deadly talents in his quest to find Alix, who has gone missing. Along the way they become entangled with Soviet mobsters, a billionaire Texan zealot, nuclear weapons and possibly Armageddon itself. Lee's dignified English accent fits this international thriller perfectly. His narration is confident and assured and hits all the right notes, whether presenting a car chase, a pitched gun battle or a tender love scene. Moving swiftly between multiple characters and locales, Lee keeps the listener immersed and enthralled in a dizzying world of action and danger. A Viking hardcover (Reviews, Jan. 5). (Mar.)
