Publisher's Summary

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. For Hazel and Hector have a child, a precious daughter, who he will go to the ends of the earth to protect. And brutal figures from the Bannock family's past - thought long-gone - are returning, with an agenda so sinister that Hector realizes he is facing a new breed of enemy. One whose shifting attack and dark, shocking secrets take Hector to the heart of Africa and to a series of crimes so shocking they demand revenge.

    Story
    "Not nearly as good as Those in Peril"

    John Lee was a disappointing narrator after listening to Rupert Degas read the previous book in the series (Those in Peril). I found the love scenes particularly excruciating to listen to as both the writing and reading were so stilted.

    "Great story but narration let it down"

    I'm afraid the narrator let this one down. It sounded like a bad amateur dramatics production! And all the accents differed from the first book where South African Hazel actually had a South African accent and Paddy was from Northern Ireland instead of Ireland. Everybody in this book seems to have a weird mid-Atlantic drawl! But it's still a ripping tale and well worth listening to!

    "Disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to the previous book in the series I decided to buy this as I have enjoyed his writing for many years. I was disappointed to find that once again one of the best descriptive storytellers has included unneccesarily explicit sex into what would have been a better story if he had left the level of depravity to the imagination rather than detail it.
    A shame

    "Part 2 not accessible"
    What disappointed you about Vicious Circle?

    I enjoyed part 1 very much, and were looking forward to enjoy listening to part 2 as well, but with every attempt only part 1 will play - no part 2 at all???


    How could the performance have been better?

    Part 2 would not play???

    Story
    "A few hours of your life you will never get back"

    This is probably the worst book i have ever read or listened to. I even checked the spelling of the author's name as i did not see how it could be Wilbur Smith. One small note is unfortunately Swahili is not spoken in Zimbabwe and I feel he is insulting Africa by his lack of research. AWFUL
