HAS BEN HOPE FINALLY MET HIS MATCH?
The master bestseller returns with the explosive follow up to STAR OF AFRICA. The second in a two-part series.
The adventure began in Star of Africa, now ex-SAS major Ben Hope is in the most desperate situation of his life…
Held hostage by a despicable tyrant in the heart of Africa, it’s not looking good for Ben Hope.
General Khosa’s lust for blood is matched only by his lust for power – and he wants to use Ben’s superior military skills to turn his rabble of inexperienced boys into an army of lethal soldiers.
If Ben refuses, Khosa will kill the person he loves most. If he cooperates, he’ll bring more death and devastation to the world’s most violent, war-torn nation.
Either way, Ben will have blood on his hands – unless he can defeat Khosa. It seems an impossible task. But for Ben Hope, anything is possible…

The Devils Kingdom
What a shame. 13 is an unlucky number, particularly for readers of book 13 in the Ben Hope series. A very frustrating read, made all the more frustrating by stretching the story over two books.
Hope's son Jude, a pain in previous books, now becomes insufferable and the cause of hundreds of deaths, yet he remains a central character. The sooner he is killed off the better.
Let's hope book 15 is an improvement. Although it will take some convincing for me to even bother trying.
