Publisher's Summary

Has Ben Hope finally met his match?
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.

Worst in series

The main characters are morons, there is no way special service soldiers would act in the way the characters did in this book, as for Benz so-called son he needs belting, he cost thousands of lives Freezone arrogant self-righteous stupidity and this contrived story One minute Ben is really smart intelligent you have a minute is making stupid erratic decisions. Really this is about bad writing, the author was trying to contrive situations and scenes and the Cotuit is violence went on way too long, we got the point Africa is tough.

Unnerving but gripping.

Gruesome & unnecessarily gory in places. NOT for kids. I know these horrors go on in Africa but I don't think it's needed in entertainment.

Epic story

One of the best in the Ben Hope series. The story really takes you there. Fantastic performance by narrator.
