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, performance took me out of it a bit.

As with all the Scott Mariani books I've read so far, great story and difficult to stop listening.

The one thing I will point out is the reader's American accent. Overall, not too bad, but PLEASE stop putting an 'r' at the end of words which end in an 'a'. It really brings the performance down. Had I not been previously aware of what some of these names & abbreviations were, I would have though that you were genuinely referring to things like:
Darper (DARPA)
Nikola Tesler (Tesla)
"And my name's Roberter. Roberter Ryder" (Roberta)
Idear (idea)

All these things said in an American accent sound rather silly.

Other than that, a great book and I look forward to the next!

P.S. thank you to Will Ryecroft for portraying Brooke as English again, after Jack Hawkins, for reasons unknown, decided that, even after portraying her as English for Book 7, he would portray her as American in book 8...

Laughable

I have listened to quite a few Ben Hope books but this is far the most laughable of them all but they do entertain and I will not stop me listening to more

Fabulous story brilliantly narrated

Fast paste and action packed with a really good storyline.
A little bit of a cliff hanger at the end what more could a girl want?

Another enjoyable Ben Hope adventure

This book is the third in the Ben Hope series narrated by Will Rycroft that I have purchased through Audible. Trouble is, for me, Will’s voice is Ben Hope so I can’t listen to the other books narrated by anyone else without feeling like it isn’t right (I bought the paperbacks for the others).
Is it far fetched, sometimes unbelievable? Absolutely and that’s exactly what you want from an adventure-think Bond or Mission Impossible.
I always enjoy the pace at which Mariani writes and I like how he doesn’t always make Ben loveable, but flawed, as us humans usually are, elite included.
I look forward to the next instalment.

Another fantastic instalment in the Ben Hope series. Fast paced adventure at its best! Also, nice to hear that Brooke has re-acquired her English accent! Absolutely a must read.

A good tale but a bit 'same-y'

I do enjoy this series, but it is getting a bit of 'similar scrapes', ' last minute escapes' and same sort of panics.

Having said that, I like the characters, and on the whole find the stories and scrapes entertaining. Definitely worth a read!

Excellent adventure

A really good action adventure which kept me shouting as if I could redirect Ben’s decisions! Must start the next book immediately.
