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 fans who get breathless with anticipation when the countdown to the new Ben Hope thriller begins

Best Ben Hope for a while...!

This Ben Hope adventure had it all, in spades! I'd found the previous books a good read, but the spark had been lost since the early part of the series. Without a doubt it's back with a bang in The Moscow Cypher!
Ben is on the trail of a young girl who has gone missing. It soon becomes evident that her disappearance is linked to a much bigger plot...one that could have catastrophic consequences on a global scale.
Superbly intriguing plot line, some interesting characters and full of the usual action and adventure that you'd expect from this series. Can't recommend this one enough!
Superb narration from Colin Mace once again. His range of accents is fantastic.

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.

SaS at its best

excellent story, well laid out and professionally narrated.

Fast pace as you work your way through Moscow's less welcoming areas.

Another great story

Another action-packed, slightly implausible story from Mariani. Enjoyed it though and looking forward to the next Hope adventure.

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.

Another good read.


Loved this book. My first audible fiction having read previous Ben Hope books. Far easier than kindle.
This is the way to go.
