    Hazel Bannock is heir to the Bannock Oil Corporation, one of the major global oil producers.

    Swashbuckling Smith gets raunchy in his old age

    Rupert Degas was nothing short of amazing. Best performance of an audio book I've ever heard. His acting skills are unmatched, his dialects flawless a..Show More »

    When Hector Cross's new life is overturned, he immediately recognizes the ruthless hand of an enemy he has faced many times before: a terrorist group has re-emerged - like a deadly scorpion from beneath its rock. Determined to fight back, Hector draws together a team of his most loyal friends from his former life in Cross Bow Security, a company originally contracted to protect his beloved wife, Hazel Bannock, and her company, the Bannock Oil Corp. They travel to the remotest Middle East, to hunt down those who pursue him and his loved ones.

    He could have stick to one story line and not deviate to totally contrasting stories
