Publisher's Summary

The top 10 Sunday Times best seller returns with the 17th Ben Hope thriller.

When 12-year-old Valentina fails to return from a visit to her father in Moscow, alarm bells start ringing. Her rich and powerful family know there's one man they can depend on to bring her back safe: former SAS major Ben Hope.

But what starts off as an apparently straightforward case of parental child abduction quickly takes on more sinister dimensions as Ben travels to Moscow and starts to investigate the whereabouts of Valentina and her father, Yuri, a man with a hidden past not even his ex-wife knows about.

Now that past has caught up with him, it's not only Yuri's life that is in danger but Valentina's too. If Ben Hope can't save them, nobody can.

Ben Hope is one of the most celebrated action-adventure heroes in British fiction, and Scott Mariani is the author of numerous best sellers. Join the ever-growing legion of readers who get breathless with anticipation when the countdown to the new Ben Hope thriller begins

Brilliant!!!

Always captivating! I love the attention placed on the details of the different places; I am catapulted directly into the story and can feel every emotion each character is experiencing. I enjoyed the experience of being seated on the luxury jet as well as bouncing over dirt trailed roads in the Mercedes and tumbling along at high speed in the van. I also enjoy listening to Colin Mace who truly brings the characters and places alive.

Thank you both (Scott Mariani and Colin Mace) and your team.

Ben Hope Always Delivers

Great story as ever, brilliant plot, and the narration is superb. Have read all of the books so far and really hope there are many more to come.

Awful

Mariani gets worse with every book. Hope’s unbelievable antics become more and more impossible. Even Superman would struggle in some of the situations Hope gets in. Hope always does the right thing what being rude, chauvinistic and generally acting like a complete jerk.
Bullets never hit him, he never misses and there’s always a way out. The bad guys are without any redeeming features and are hopelessly inept. Action for those out of touch with reality.

Brilliant as always

I’ve read all of the Ben Hope series and loved every minute. I think I’m a little in love with Ben to be honest. He’s tough and protective but with hidden depths and a huge heart. If you like an adventure and aren’t put off by a bit of violence, then Scott Mariani’s Ben Hope series is for you. I just have to wait patiently, which is difficult, for the next in the series.

Best yet!

I've said this a number,of times, but this latest adventure for our hero ,for me, surpasses all the rest! The totally engrossing non-stop action, engaging characters and wonderfully convoluted plot seriously interfered with various other things I was SUPPOSED to be doing!
The scary conspiracy theories from the past raising their sinister heads again, together with the graphic descriptions of some truly dreadful people illtreating other human beings, would have been intolerable were it not for the superb,edge-of-ones -seat writing, and some excellent narration.
lt was also rather fun when the dog was revealed to have had more or less the last word!
Altogether outstanding!!
