The master best seller returns with the explosive follow-up to Star of Africa. The second in a two-part series.
Held hostage by a despicable tyrant in the heart of Africa - within the lawless and unforgiving Congo - it's not looking good for Ben Hope. Even worse, someone very important to him has fallen into the enemy's hands, and they're using this against Ben as part of a depraved plan to bend him to their will.

Very bloody and very violent.
Lots of disappointment in this book, after listening to all of the Ben Hope books back to back. It was far too graphic in the violent scenes, and I found myself forwarding past these awful, descriptive scenes. it was as if the author has a very sadistic streak himself and has expressed it in this and the last book. Also, this book didn't show the normal, assertive, Ben Hope who I'm sure, going by previous books, wouldn't have let his, weak, spineless son, dictate to him what should have been done with the despotic villain. Consequently, many lives are lost when the old Ben Hope would have foreseen what would happen.
He would also have known what would have happened after the meeting with the chief of police towards the end of the book. To this end I found it very frustrating and disappointing.
