Description

Most of his female companions end up trying to change him which is just no, if one tries to change their partner that's always a dealbreaker. An ancient lost city founded by Alexander the Great and rediscovered by Madison’s archaeologist father. I think that this book really shows that character development that Ben has gone through throughout this series, he’s far more measured than he would have been if this had been towards the start of the series. Since discovering the work of Scott Mariani, I have been highly impressed with the series as a whole, as well and many of the individual books. The latest Ben Hope story sees our hero asked by the government to go back to post-US Afghanistan to extract an unamed VIP before the Taliban find hime - he agrees because it will aid his personal wish to try and find an American woman also stranded.

I will give no more details as I don't like spoilers, just enough to say the plot twist ruined it for me , so much so I can only muster a feeble 1 star and a heartfelt sob. Mariani uses his strong writing ability to entertain the reader while providing a significant amount of history to prop up the fictional side of the story. This book takes Ben almost back to his roots by bringing him back to Afghanistan and we see how this affects him with memories of his time there with the SAS and in the military in general. The plot is filled with hard-hitting and edge-of-the-seat action that is both scary and unpredictable and can grab you by the throat. While trying to acclimate in-country, Hope and his comrades begin their mission, soon locating Madison and learning of her own mission in the country, which includes trying to save a number of items from Alexander the Great.So when ex-SAS major Ben Hope hears former bounty-hunter, Madison Cahill, needs his help he knows it will test him to his limits – and beyond. This book is a ride from the very first page, it leaves you hanging on to find out what Ben and the team are going to face next.

Not a bad way to start in the series for myself but it got me interested in starting from the beginning and start a fresh with a new author. Between tracking down the bounty hunter Madison Cahill, trying to fulfil the mysterious mission from the British government and helping old comrades with their own personal agendas, how will Ben survive the impossible? This is book twenty-six in the series and Ben is now a more mature and thoughtful character than he was at the beginning, but he’s still the one you’d want fighting your corner. It was a blast to have them team up again after their last encounter (The Demon Club) which was truly mindblowing.

Great characters, mostly new and likely one-off, keep the story intriguing and add a humorous and gritty aspect that is needed to offset some of the more painful realities the subject matter begs exploring.

It was another great read in the ever-expanding Ben Hope adventures and might I say, one of the most dangerous ones he had to face.Wolf has his own agenda but both men know the conditions they face may prove as lethal as their enemies.

g. Atlantis, Excalibur and so forth, these topics almost always resemble more fantasy than a thriller). Who is the mysterious ‘Spartan’ that the British officials are so desperate to extract from behind enemy lines? Nothing goes to plan and he needs all of his skills just to survive, but several chance encounters mean he is not on his own for long.As always dragged into it against his will, against overwhelming odds with a lady involved at some point, that’s a Ben Hope storyline. Next thing he knows, he’s been co-opted by his old SAS colonel and is heading for Afghanistan to rescue a high-level target known only as ‘spartan’.
