Publisher's Summary

The explosive, thrilling new Ben Hope adventure from the top-10 best-selling author.

A brutal murder...

While secretly researching the bizarre discoveries of Serbian scientist Nikola Tesla many years earlier, physicist Claudine Pommier becomes the victim of a remorseless and cruel murderer who breaks into her Parisian apartment. Is he just a serial killer? Or is there more to her death than the Paris cops believe?

A scientist on the run...

Maverick American biologist Dr Roberta Ryder receives a mysterious letter from her friend Claudine and travels to Paris to see her, only to learn of her shocking death. Before she knows it, Roberta becomes the target of ruthless men with a deadly agenda that only the letter can unmask. She's alone and vulnerable. But she knows someone - the only someone - who can help her.

A plot to kill millions...

Ben Hope, ex-SAS soldier and Roberta's old flame, now trying to retire to a life of peace with his fiancée, Brooke, suddenly finds his life turned upside down by Roberta's sudden arrival in England. She needs his help; he can't turn her down. In a frantic race to Paris and halfway around the world, Ben and Roberta battle to uncover the mystery of Claudine's research, with the killers just half a step behind. In the process they uncover a global conspiracy that will claim the lives of millions of people...unless Ben can stop it.

Great story with plenty of action

I always enjoy a Ben Hope story. This was no exception. I did however find it a little weaker than usual in some aspects especially towards the end. I'd have expected the hero to encounter more resistance in New York. I don't want to write spoilers here but there were a couple of things that did not add up.

Brilliant story, poor performance.

The American accent in this story was terrible!

Every time a word like 'idea' was uttered in either quigly's or Roberta Ryder's voice was said like 'idear' Americans don't bloody put r sounds on the words they speak! It's really annoying!

I love the Ben hope series but dang! Please keep to Colin mace from now on!

Oh dear

Would you try another book written by Scott Mariani or narrated by Will Rycroft?

Yes. I have read all the books in the Ben Hope series and will persevere with the next one

What was most disappointing about Scott Mariani’s story?

It was simply unbelievable. Ben Hope is good but seems to have taken on supernatural powers. The story would be better suited to a Marvel comic. I don't want to provide any spoilers but suffice it to say I am expecting him to be able to captain a nuclear submarine in the next book.

What about Will Rycroft’s performance did you like?

Hardly noticed he was reading it which is the highest praise I could give. Easy to listen to voice and good with accents 1000% better than Jack Hawkins.

Did The Nemesis Program inspire you to do anything?

Scrap my plans for world domination.

Any additional comments?

Need to listen to it simply so there is continuity in the series but did not enjoy it. Enjoyed all the previous books in the series especially the ones not read by Jack Hawkins whos voice is totally wrong for this kind of book.

Ridiculous Plot!

What could Scott Mariani have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Found a more believable story line and avoided some of the trite SAS speak.

Any additional comments?

I can't believe that this book made it into the 'Sunday Times' top 10 bestsellers.
