`Scott Mariani is perhaps the best working exponent of the classic chase thriller. The action comes thick and fast and is choreographed with Mariani's trademark skill and authenticity. Another slickly crafted adventure from the modern master of mayhem.' SHOTS MAGAZINE `As usual with Mariani, the book hums with energy and pace and I practically inhaled it. If you like your conspiracies twisty, your action bone-jarring, and your heroes impossibly dashing, then look no farther - the Ben Hope series is exactly what you need.
