Publisher's Summary

When Hector Cross's new 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.
They travel to the remotest 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, shocking secrets take Hector to the heart of Africa and to a series of crimes so shocking they demand revenge.

Depraved, sick, trivial, boring, tediously read

What was most disappointing about Wilbur Smith’s story?

Having listened to the previous Hector Cross novel "Those in Peril" which I enjoyed, I wasn't expecting to find a sick and distasteful detailed description of the worse type of sexual violence in this second book. The plot is extremely poor and needs to be stretched with endless trivial and boring details, the writer seems to enjoy re-inventing numerous times details of the same most perverted sexual and violent actions, the narrator is completely detached from the plot and seems bored himself while reading the book. Overall a very dissappointing waste of time and money.
