Product Description

The explosive, thrilling new BEN HOPE adventure from the top 10 bestselling author

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?

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.

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.

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,

I have long been a fan of Scott Mariani and Ben Hope and on this occasion Mariani has surpassed himself. I'm regard myself as a fairly quick reader but I cleared this book in just two days; it would have been quicker if I didn't have to go to bed! The subject matter, a weapon of such destructive force, seems implausible at first but as the story progresses it becomes more convincing particularly with the idea of secret organisations within already secret organisations.
For those who have yet to meet Ben Hope, beware he is highly addictive and I can only recommend Scott Mariani and Ben Hope

Big Ben Hope fan, just waiting for the next one.I seem to deliberately read them slower these days, knowing that the next one is not written yet.Yet again Ben Hope the man we would secretly all like to be triumphs in the end! I am beginning to think whatever the subject of these books was about, as long as Ben is in there, it wouldn't really matter, maybe Ben Hope cookery books.Ben Hope plays for England, that would surely guarantee us the world cup.Long live Ben.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth waiting for 8 Jun 2014
By Susan

I pre-order for my kindle and waited patiently for it to arrive. Not one but disappointed. I love the Ben Hope books and struggle to actually put them down one I start reading. This latest one is excellent and now I'm waiting for the next one.

This is completely unfair! After reading Armada I waited 14 months for the next Ben Hope to arrive. I pre-ordered it for my Kindle so I would be sure to get it the moment it was released. It was waiting for me when I woke up and I read it in a single session - finishing in the early afternoon. Now I'm back to waiting for the next one again

By PatFree

I just love Scott Mariani's novels - now think I have read all of them. The action is brilliant and you are drawn into Ben Hope's
life, except I wish he had married Brooke this time. Looking forward to finding out what happens next time - just hope
Mr. Mariani is not running out of ideas.
