    Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the village of Ballybucklebo on a map when he first sets out to seek gainful employment there, but already he knows that there is nowhere he would rather live than in the emerald hills and dales of Northern Ireland. The proud owner of a spanking-new medical degree and little else in the way of worldly possessions, Barry jumps at the chance to secure a position as an assistant in a small rural practice.

    Hazel Bannock is heir to the Bannock Oil Corporation, one of the major global oil producers. While cruising the Indian Ocean, her yacht is hijacked by Somalian pirates and her nineteen-year-old daughter, Cayla, kidnapped. The pirates demand a crippling 20-billion-dollar ransom for her release, and complicated political and diplomatic sensitivities render the major powers incapable of intervening.

    What disappointed you about Those in Peril?

    Graphic Sex Scenes.


    What was most disappointing about Wilbur Smith’s story?

    WISH I COULD GET MY CREDIT BACK! The preview was great. It sunk down low from that point on. Wilbur Smith usually uses his story line and characters to entertain; not in this case. The sex & violence was over the top. I bought it without checking the reviews.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have walked out if this were a movie. GOOD thriller/action stories rely on characters and story line not trash.
