About this deal

I hope these days there will come a woman to stick and accept him for who he is and be there for him. I think that this book really shows that character development that Ben has gone through throughout this series, he’s far more measured than he would have been if this had been towards the start of the series. With no rules and few friends, Hope will have to tap into all his skills while staying as quiet as possible if he hopes to leave the country alive,. Scott Mariani is the author of the worldwide-acclaimed action / adventure series featuring maverick ex-SAS hero Ben Hope. In this book, Ben enters into the Taliban occupied Afghanistan to find out his friend Madison, who got stranded there due to the political tension after US military force was withdrawn.

Although I have given this book 5 stars because it is definitely worth everyone of those 5 stars, this is the first book of the 26 in this series that did not have quite the same rhythm as the previous 25. The mission will take Ben back to a place he thought was firmly in his past, back to someone he can never leave behind – and back to some old comrades. Jeff, his business partner has a heavy cold and isn't fit for human company and Tuesday has gone home to Jamaica to see his family. Not a bad way to start in the series for myself but it got me interested in starting from the beginning and start a fresh with a new author.I was getting right into this tale of derring do and excited to visit with Ben Hope when the story just imploded with THE most excruciatingly embarrassing plot twist . The mission will take Ben back to a place he thought was firmly in his past – and back to old comrades. Next thing he knows, he’s been co-opted by his old SAS colonel and is heading for Afghanistan to rescue a high-level target known only as ‘spartan’. Who is the “Spartan” that the British government wants back from Afghanistan and what makes him so valuable?

The Americans have just pulled out, and with the Taliban in control again it would be impossible for him to even get into the country. The regime imposed torture and public punishments like hanging and shooting on those who failed to follow their strict rules.Mariani uses his strong writing ability to entertain the reader while providing a significant amount of history to prop up the fictional side of the story. At last, with the blood-red colours of sunset filling the eastern sky, they rolled to a halt at their destination. Most of his female companions end up trying to change him which is just no, if one tries to change their partner that's always a dealbreaker. It was another great read in the ever-expanding Ben Hope adventures and might I say, one of the most dangerous ones he had to face.

As always, there is a historical element to these stories and quite a lot of detail to impart, which slows down the action for a while and gives the rescue party a chance to catch their breath.

When Hope is visited by a former SAS superior soon thereafter, he discovers that he is being put back into action, though without the commanding rank. Their mission is to rescue a group of 40 children from an orphanage along with their matrons and priest, who have been bravely protecting the kids from falling into the hands of the ruthless Taliban soldiers. The 26th edition in the former SAS Major Ben Hope series by Scott Mariani is yet another explosive, high-octane thriller and one of the best so far in this series.
