The new thriller from bestselling adventure writer Wilbur Smith

If you like Wilbur Smith you might also like to read books by Rosemary Sutcliff, Robyn Young and John Gordon Davies.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. This typically weighty and colourful novel has a resourceful and determined protagonist, Hector Cross, up against an implacable enemy – a man of power and dark intent he has faced many times before. A terrorist group is marshalling its resources, and Cross, firmly in its sights, has to draw upon his own resources (along with some reliable friends) to confront lethal danger in remote parts of the Middle East. Vicious Circle is proof positive that Smith remains (as the jacket claims) ‘the world’s leading adventure writer’.

Synopsis

Vicious Circle by Wilbur Smith

Love. Loss. Revenge. When Hector Cross's 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. Together, they travel to the remotest parts of the 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 secrets take Hector to the heart of Africa and to a series of crimes so shocking they demand revenge.
