The all action hero Ben Hope is back, which can only be a good thing… unless of course he’s got a score to settle with you. Although this forms part of the ‘Ben Hope’ series, it can easily be read as a stand alone book, if you do start here, be prepared to hunt down the other novels in the series once you've finished. Hope is haunted by his actions in the past and attempting to find the path of redemption, the action kicks off and he finds himself hurtling forward in a different direction. Hope as ever, goes on the attack and on this occasion has a terrifying adversary who has just one thing on his particularly deranged mind. With riveting non stop action, this is an exciting entertaining read of pure escapism. ~ Liz Robinson
Could Ben Hope have found peace at last? That's the question he's asking himself after his wanderings through Europe have led him to a remote medieval monastery in the French Alps. A haven of serenity, a place he wants to remain. But wherever Ben goes, trouble is never too far behind. When a team of merciless killers invade his newfound sanctuary and slaughter the innocent monks, Ben's revenge quest quickly draws him into a bewildering mystery of stolen treasure, deception and murder. What is the truth behind the cache of gold bullion apparently hidden for centuries under the monastery? What is the significance of an ancient curse dating back to a cruel heretic burning in medieval times? What are the real ambitions of the enigmatic leader of an organisation of doomsday 'preppers' calling themselves Exercitus Paratorum: the Army of the Prepared? As he works to unravel the clues, Ben is confronted with a terrifying reality that threatens to devastate the world and reshape the whole of our future. The race is on to prevent the ultimate disaster, and there's only one man who can do it.
