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.

I love stories by Wilbur Smith, my favourite author. However this book is awful. The story is tedious and very very far fetched. Delete button in action I,m afraid.

Almost hard-core porn

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story without the graphic(pornographic!) sexual details that littered every chapter might have been better, though as the storyline was weak and implausible, I doubt it.
I have read many of Wilbur Smith's books, but I will certainly never buy another.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. The story was far-fetched, the flashback implausible. It rambled and was generally just awful

Any additional comments?

Can I return it for refund?
