From the author of The Mozart Conspiracy, Scott Mariani’s newest international thriller raises the stakes as Ben Hope returns to prevent an attack of biblical proportions.

A DEADLY CONSPIRACY. AN ANCIENT PROPHECY. A RACE TO STOP AN ATTACK OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.

Still reeling from a devastating personal loss, ex-SAS operative and hero for hire Ben Hope has decided to put down his gun for good and return to the theology studies he had abandoned years ago. When his professor and friend asks him to help find his missing daughter, archaeologist Zoë Bradbury, Ben declines but puts his former SAS buddy Charlie Palmer on the case. But when Charlie runs into trouble on the Greek island of Corfu, Ben reluctantly joins him to find out what might have happened to Zoë. Ben has no idea he’s just embarked on the most dangerous mission of his life.

Ben realizes that Zoë’s most recent archaeological discovery of an artifact related to the book of Revelation is at the heart of her dis-appearance. What is the ancient secret that Zoë uncovered? And just who is willing to do anything to protect it? The investigation leads Ben from the Greek islands to Savannah, Georgia, to the holy city of Jerusalem, and he soon discovers that it’s not just Zoë’s life on the line but those of millions. Yet those hell-bent on staging an end-of-days–like attack for political gain will soon face the ultimate reckoning in Ben Hope.

good read, tight plot with twists and turns, well written, exciting. not Robert Ludlum or Carol O'Connell but I'm going to watch for more from this author.

Don't typically care for buckets-of-blood books but this one is OK. Heads up - there are a lot of bad guys blown away in this book with some of the gore well described.

And our hero Mr Hope seems to have a lot of extraordinary luck in finding exactly what he needs exactly when he needs it. Like a remarkably convenient antique machine gun that happens to be in the basement in perfect working order...but the book still works - recommend it.
