MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingMentions
1511,060,638 (4.5)1
The Top Ten Sunday Times bestseller returns with a gripping new Ben Hope thriller. This time it's personal... People going missing in the remote wilds of India is not unusual. But when the son of a wealthy Delhi businessman is kidnapped just weeks after his brother fell victim to an alleged bandit attack in the mountains of Haryana, it raises eyebrows. With the local police doing close to nothing, there's only one man for the job: ex-SAS major Ben Hope. But for Ben, this is no ordinary rescue case. Because this plea for help is coming from a special person from his past, who now has nobody else to turn to. Ben's mission will take him into the heart of the arid Indian wilderness, pitting him against ruthless gangs and desperate men. But Ben is determined to save the day. Whatever it takes. The master bestseller returns, with the most hotly anticipated thriller of 2019. 'If you've got a pulse, you'll love Scott Mariani; if you haven't, then maybe you crossed Ben Hope.' SIMON TOYNE… (more)

For those of you who are already Scott Mariani fans, nothing needs to be said - you'll love it, In fact, one of his best in my opinion. For everyone else, if you're into fast-paced action thrillers, with tie-ins to ancient mysteries and hidden treasure, you'll love Mariani's Ben Hope series.

That said, this may not be your best starting point. For the most part, Mariani does a great job of letting each book stand on its own, with only minor references to earlier adventures to trigger knowing smiles in regular readers - so it's better to read them in order, but not important. This one is a bit different, in that a lot of the story revolves around the backstory of two of the main characters. Hence, it's still a hell of a great ride, but you'd be missing out on a lot of the "why should I care" factor. ( )
