Publisher's Summary

The Hunt Begins…

Two men are responsible for the death of Hector Cross’ wife and only one is left alive: Johnny Congo – psychopath, extortionist, murderer, and the bane of Cross’s life. He caught him before and let him go. Now, Hector wants him dead. So does the US government.

Congo is locked up on Death Row in the most secure prison in the free world, counting down the days until his execution. He’s got two weeks. He wants out. He’s escaped before and knows he can again, and with whizz kid D’Shonn Brown enlisted, he might just have a chance.

Cross, still licking his wounds from his last bruising encounter with Congo, is back and ready for work. In the middle of the rough Atlantic stands oil supertanker Bannock A. Terrorist activity in the area has triggered panic and there’s only one person they can trust to protect her.

What is promised as a cakewalk turns out to be much more, a mission that will test Cross to his emotional and physical limits. But a life spent in the SAS and private security has left Cross hard-wired for pain and as he is thrown into the bull pit once more, he will not stop until he has snared his prey. Hector Cross is Predator.

Usual Smith

I felt the accents were a bit ropey and inconsistent at times, and the plot had a few deus ex machina bits that it could have done without

Cut short completely ruined the story

Wilbur isn't what he used to be is he. This book was unfortunately predictable, blatantly cut short just when plots were reaching their crescendo and written with no military knoweldge at all. most of the facts were literally word for word from wikipedia. Load of old tosh and a waste of a credit.

Such a shame ...

..that one of the best adventure story writers has come to this. I gave up after chapter 5. The plot was weak, the language unhelpful and sometimes offensive and the narration.... I couldn't bear the ridiculous accents and voices which were distracting and, indeed, some of which were completely incomprehensible to me. I would prefer the narrator to just read the book without the 'acting'. I'm going to return it.

Good listen

Wilbur smith is always worth a rad and I personally think the cross series is the best so it was good to have this third book. If you want a good adventure then give this a go.

Wilbur Smith? Really?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Plot was a bit plodding, not much more than an overplayed manhunt

What could Wilbur Smith and Tom Cain have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Be aware when the plot becomes excessively one dimensional

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Early scenes were ok, showed promise before a downhill descent.

Do you think Predator needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not really, needs a more interesting and engaging plot

Any additional comments?

How much of this book was down to Wilbur Smith I wonder

fabulous

narration on point, great voices. Story well worked and tense but some chuckles too. Characters are amazing and believable which makes the ending a little tearful as well as triumphant. loved it
