Publisher's Summary

From the number-one best-selling author. 

Only one man can foil a plot set to change the course of history.... 

Ex-SAS soldier Ben Hope is enjoying life at Le Val, the facility in Northern France where he trains others in the dangerous art of hostage rescue, until a chance incident forces him to take on the role of bodyguard to the Swiss billionaire Maximilian Steiner. The victim of a recent abduction attempt, Steiner believes that a neo-Nazi terror group are bent on seizing a prized document from his personal collection - one that could support claims that the Holocaust never happened. 

But what initially seemed like a straightforward VIP protection job is turned upside down by the appearance of a mystery woman from Ben's past. Could he be right about her, or is he losing his edge? 

On a quest across Europe, Ben finds himself embroiled in a deadly kidnap intrigue and a sinister project that has lain dormant since 1944. The stakes are global - and this time Ben is also fighting to protect the people closest to him....

Superb Ben Hope action/adventure...

Book 5 of Scott Mariani's Ben Hope series. after a chance encounter, the story sees the former SAS Major go in search of someone from his past. Someone who Ben thought was probably dead, and whose disappearance many years ago formed the mental anguish that Ben has fought with every day since. As a result of his pursuit for answers, Ben Hope finds himself on the trail of a kidnapped scientist, who has been taken and forced to work on a sinister plan - lost since 1944. An excellent adventure, and a great continuation to the Hope series. Superbly narrated by Colin Mace.

Fast Moving and Tense

Another really good book from Scott Mariani, Likeable characters and clever moving pace, I do sometimes think that Colin Mace sometimes gets carried away while he is narrating as he speeds up to a hectic pace. this makes me laugh as I am 'with him all the way'. I certainly enjoyed this one and have just downloaded the next in series - definitely hooked!!

Much better than book 3

Series is getting better I think. There was a definite mistep with the whole returning to theology thing, but this is a solid adventure book.
