    Fast paced, nail biting thriller

    Oh Mr Mariani. I must confess that I think I'm falling a little in love with Ben Hope. Loved loved loved it. Fast paced and action packed with just the right amount of doing the right thing mixed with blood guts and gore. What's not to like? Superb Many thanks.

    Hope triumphs again

    Gripping, with an astonishing attention to background details, once again Scott Mariani has given us a roller coaster ride. The supreme hero Ben Hope continues to masterly outwit and overcome all adversaries. Settle down and enjoy the experience.

    Not his best ...

    Having read all of the novels in the Ben Hope franchise, I found this one fell short of his usual work. Whilst not as sharp as Valley of Death, the plot was good but it just lacked that spark.

    Fast paced Ben Hope thriller

    The Ben Hope stories always were a high octane thrilling journey and this one continues; book 20 in the series, wow. I last read book 10 so am definitely out of date. This has the same basic premise though - Ben, ex SAS, previously trainee priest is still running his own security training business in France. On his way home he is run into by a girl in Paris, she drops her bag and contents scatter, he picks them up, she runs off, he then finds her phone and, with his 'spy' skills finds out where she lives. As he's going up the stairs to her apartment a man passes on the way down. Vague familiarity. Girl's flat; girl dead and off we go. Ben realises that the man on the way down is an old enemy and not dead as Ben believed. Muslim terrorists of the most fundamental and nasty kind are involved in stealing historic artefacts and developing a system to spread drugs to slaughter millions of people. They lead Ben and an old mate, ex Delta Force Tyler Roth, round the houses, always one step ahead with murder and mayhem, quick thinking by our hero and so on. There are rather a lot of "just misses" and a bloody finale of the best kind. The only reason I dropped a star, and almost 2, was the frankly, vituperative diatribe by Roth against the Quran and all Muslims with Ben only mildly saying that the Bible has some pretty extreme passages in it too. I suppose he is only a character and that that was his feeling but it felt distinctly uncomfortable and I really hoped that he would get his uppance before the end! If we have that much on the subject then Ben should have argued the case for the non fundamentalist Muslims who are in the vast majority. The book is well-written and I believe that the author does a goodly amount of research given the detailed descriptions of various toys, gizmos and the like. James Bond - you still have a rival and without the girls. Thanks to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for an advance copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
