Internationally best-selling author Wilbur Smith returns with a heart-racing story of family secrets, greed, and revenge.
Hector Cross left behind a career of high risks and warfare when he married his beloved Hazel Bannock. But after his new life is tragically upended, he recognizes the ruthless hand of an old enemy behind the attack. Determined to fight back, Hector draws together a team of his most loyal friends and fellow warriors to hunt down those who pursue him and his loved ones. For he and Hazel have a child, a precious daughter, whom he will go to the ends of the earth to protect.
Soon, however, Hector learns that the threat comes not just from his old enemies, but also Hazel's. Brutal figures from her family's past - thought long gone - are returning, with an agenda so sinister that Hector realizes he is facing a new type of adversary. One whose deadly methods and dark secrets will lead Hector to a series of crimes so shocking that he has no choice but to settle the score.

As a usual fan of all of Wilbur Smith novels I was disappointed. The prequel "Those In Peril" had a good story and a fair share of action without running amuck!
A couple murders in this book were so sickly graphic as to be disturbing even to an old 70 year old. A good tale that went too far...
It would be nice not to have main characters that have no depth
Yes I have listened to John Lee before. Too bad the story does not justify his performance
Seems to me to be a cash grab releasing two books days apart
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
