Book Description

14 July 2008 Ben Hope 2

FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR

Former SAS operative Ben Hope is running for his life.

Enlisted by the beautiful Leigh Llewellyn - world famous opera star and Ben's first love - to investigate her brother's mysterious death, Ben finds himself caught up in a centuries-old puzzle.

The official line states that Oliver died whilst investigating Mozart's death, but the facts don't add up. Oliver's research reveals that Mozart, a notable freemason, may have been killed by a shadowy and powerful splinter group of the cult. The only clues lie in an ancient letter, believed to have been written by Mozart himself.

When Leigh and Ben receive video evidence of a ritual sacrifice being performed by hooded men, they realise that the sect is still in existence today…and will stop at nothing to remain a secret.

From the dreaming spires of Oxford to Venice's labyrinthine canals, the majestic architecture of Vienna and Slovenia's snowy mountains, Ben and Leigh must forget the past and race across Europe to uncover the truth behind THE MOZART CONSPIRACY…

An electrifying and utterly gripping must read for fans of Dan Brown, Sam Bourne and Ludlum's Bourne series.

More About the Author

Scott Mariani is the author of the worldwide-acclaimed action-adventure thriller series featuring ex-SAS hero Ben Hope, which has sold over a million copies in Scott's native UK alone and is also translated into over 20 languages. His books have been described as 'James Bond meets Jason Bourne, with a historical twist'. The first Ben Hope book, THE ALCHEMIST'S SECRET, spent six straight weeks at #1 on Amazon's Kindle chart, and all the others have been Sunday Times bestsellers.

Scott was born in Scotland, studied in Oxford and now lives and writes in a remote setting in rural west Wales. When not writing, he can be found bouncing about the country lanes in an ancient Land Rover, wild camping in the Brecon Beacons or engrossed in his hobbies of astronomy, photography and target shooting (no dead animals involved!).

In addition to writing thrillers, he's also an avid fan of horror, and his most recent publication, available exclusively on Amazon, is HOUSE OF MALICE, a shocking and terrifying novella based partly on some of Scott's own personal experiences as a paranormal investigator. You can find out more about Scott and his work on his official website, www.scottmariani.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic second read in the series. 10 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I immediately downloaded The Mozart Conspiracy after finishing the first Ben Hope book, The Alchemists Secret. I was captivated by the first book and was therefore hoping the second in the series would not disappoint. It certainly did not.

Following in a similar vein to the first book, The Mozart Conspiracy follows Ben Hope's investigation through France, Vienna and Venice as he tries to track down the murderer of his old friend who died in very suspicious circumstances whilst researching the death of Mozart for a book he was writing. What Ben discovers along the way is both shocking and unbelievable but what is worse is that it is obvious that the route to the truth keeps being deliberately thwarted by someone.

This book had me gripped from start to finish and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone who enjoys a thriller plus a good old conspiracy theory! On to the next book in the series already.....

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT ...AGAIN. 11 Jan 2012
By KJCXXX
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am now officially hooked on these books and in particular the character 'BEN HOPE'. There must be something about these ex-special services men. (see other reviews of the Spider Shepard stories) When I finished those I wondered who was going to fill the void and I found him Ben Hope.

Well written and researched books with great details fast paced action packed and set around the world. Never a dull moment. Only problem is I don't have enough time in the day to read. Only get the chance last thing at night by which time I am too tired to go on & on & on reading.

I promise you will not be disappointed if you give these books ago. ENJOY>

5.0 out of 5 stars Another conspiracy 13 Mar 2012
By meg
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the third Scott Mariani book I have read and a revelation. This is a real page turner a conspiracy story with intense detail showing this writer must do incredible research. In my view a better writer than Dan Brown and look forward now to reading more of his Ben Hope stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Ben Hope Book 5 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Being A big fan of such authors as Dan Brown & Steve Berry I came across the Ben Hope series after purchasing the alchemists secret which was a good book I picked up the second novel in series with much anticipation. In this second novel Ben travels through France, Vienna & Venice investigating the death of one of his friends who was researching a book based upon the death of the renowned composer Mozart.
There a twists and turns at every page aided by a sinister cult who will do anything to stop the truth coming out, and the reappearance of an old enemy and a tragic end makes this book a real page turner. Mariani describes and sets a scene with great detail and the book is well researched, the only criticism I have of the book is that the book itself has very little with the Mozart himself apart from the mysterious letter he send just before his death in 1788, apart from that he's not really mentioned after that.
Overall a good page turner that excites with non stop action, i'm looking forward to reading the other Ben hope novels.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much violence, too little suspense 3 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback
Although this novel is being marketed as a conspiracy thriller, it is really more of a gorefest. There IS a conspiracy, but we never really learn much about it. Many of the Da Vinci Code clones have this same problem - they forget that Dan Brown's book, for all its faults, attracted so many readers because it catered both to mystery-lovers and action buffs. The Marianis go all-out for non-stop action and spend no time developing the mystery element of the plot. It's just there in the backdrop, to justify the blood and the chases. Very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner you won't put down. 15 Dec 2008
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The Mozart Conspiracy

Lee Childs meets Dan Brown is a reasonable way of summing up the style of this fine thriller.

Ben Hope the hero is as Teflon coated as Jack Reacher but a more engaging character, in fact all the characters are reasonably rounded especially Leigh Llewellyn Hope's first love and the focus of the novel.

Like other reviewers I read the book in one sitting, it is a real page turner written in an easy to assimilate style with plenty of action. Although slightly lacking real nail biting tension it made no difference to this reader, I kept reading regardless.

I have already ordered all the other Scott Mariani novels.
