Publisher's Summary

A sunken secret. A missing woman. A race against time.
Former SAS major Ben Hope is relaxing at his home in Normandy when he hears the worst news of his life. His ex-girlfriend, Dr Brooke Marcel, has been kidnapped. Racing against the clock, Ben's frantic search for Brooke leads him from Ireland to the Spanish mountains and the rainforests of Peru.
What is the mysterious link between the kidnapping, the salvage of a sunken 16th-century Spanish warship and the secret activities of its wealthy discoverer? As the trail of wreckage and mayhem intensifies, Ben soon uncovers a web of intrigue, corruption and brutal murder. But will he be too late to find Brooke alive?

Most Helpful


Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book because it's a good story if you want to list to something not too taxing, and it's skips along at a decent pace most of the time - the hero is also flawed enough to be believable.

What did you like best about this story?

A good easy read, plot works well enough, the characters are clear cut and mostly believable.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narration good apart from a problem with accents. I like Jack Hawkins but he cannot do Spanish (the Peruvian speaks with a French accent) and he has a limited number of 'voices' to cover all the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The accent of Brook

Latest instalment was better then the last book but when did Brooke develop an American accent. That was distracting.
Looking forward to reading the next one
