Publisher's Summary

Former operative Major Hector Cross must face off against a pair of lethal enemies and prevent an international catastrophe in this gripping contemporary adventure-thriller - perfect for fans of Clive Cussler, Ted Bell, and Vince Flynn - from the legendary worldwide best-selling author of Desert God and Golden Lion.

One of the most formidable fighters in the world, ex-SAS warrior and former private security consultant Major Hector Cross has survived explosive tangles with depraved enemies - warlords, pirates, and arms dealers - from the Middle East to the heart of Africa. Now Cross must take the law into his own hands once again to stop a vengeful old enemy who has resurfaced - and hunt down a deadly new nemesis in pursuit of global domination.

Cowritten with internationally best-selling author Tom Cain, this exciting tale, filled with knife-edge tension, cunning global intrigue, rip-roaring action, and breathtaking adventure, demonstrates the extraordinary vision and talent of a writer with a gift for consistently delivering nonstop entertainment.

    "Where was the producer?"

    I enjoyed the story because I had read the first two but this reader made me crazy with his mangled pronunciations. Why the producer didn't do their job is beyond me. Pretty much ruined it for me!!

    "NOT Wilbur Smith"

    First off, this book cannot be from Wilbur Smith an immensely talented writer. He should stick to African family based stores or historical type novels where he is best. This book is terrible & the performance is even worse, perhaps the worst I have heard on Audible!!
    Don"t bother with this book

    "Not disappointed"

    I've been a Wilber Smith fan for many years and have liked some books more than others. This was a great "listen" in every way! Narration was exceptional.

    "Another great Wilbur Smith book!"

    I wish it had been a bit longer! Narration was excellent. I must now go back and read the prior novel.

    "Non-stop action"

    This is the first book I've read by this author and I have well over 1,000 books in my library. I really don't understand the less than 5 star reviews. This book had characters who were well drawn and you cared about or despised. The action was non-stop until the end. I'd put this up there with any book by Vince Flynn, Brad Thor or Brad Taylor. I enjoyed it so much that I just went back and downloaded the first book in the series.

    "Starts slow... but worth the wait"
    Where does Predator rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Good story where you cheer for Hector Cross to kick butt :)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hector Cross and Zhenia's growing relationship is fun to follow. Catherine's interaction with the main characters, even though kind of limited, is pretty funny.

    "Great book but there story just ended"

    I truly enjoyed this book. But the story wrapped up in a mere 15 minutes. I didn't have time to digest some of the joy and some of the tragedy that was all served at once entirely too quickly.

    "Awful Narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really...well, maybe the BOOK but not the recording.


    Would you recommend Predator to your friends? Why or why not?

    It seems much more disjointed than a typical Wilbur Smith book. It seemed poorly researched. The narration seemed to be a first cold read. Accents were ragged and totally misplaced. He made Texas Rangers sound like Brooklyn cabbies. Many scenes were hard to fathom because he made all the characters sound the same. Ugh.


    What didn’t you like about Ben Onwukwe’s performance?

    See above.


    Did Predator inspire you to do anything?

    Give up on Wilbur Smith. He had "help" with this book...and I suspect contributed little to the finished product. I hate it. He was the very best at what he did.
