I so love how Ben gets pulled into these kinds of missions despite his unwillingness and desire for a mundane life. From his early days of go get ‘em to the more mature and thought provoking, Graveyard of Empires; but together with excitement, characterisation, storyline and plots, comes a history lesson of Afghanistan. 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.

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’. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. Wow absolutely lost for words this is the ben hope and adventure we fell in love with from thr first book, I can't help it but imagine Ben hope as being a real person everytime there is a new installment it's like having a friend round for a great catch up. This is book twenty-six in the series and Ben is now a more mature and thoughtful character than he was at the beginning, but he’s still the one you’d want fighting your corner. Who is the “Spartan” that the British government wants back from Afghanistan and what makes him so valuable?And how fitting the title is - this land seems to be truly cursed, whoever dares come across it loses and it bears fruit to nothing, well nothing good.

While trying to acclimate in-country, Hope and his comrades begin their mission, soon locating Madison and learning of her own mission in the country, which includes trying to save a number of items from Alexander the Great. 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to find out his friend Madison, who got stranded there due to the political tension after US military force was withdrawn. 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. The latest Ben Hope story sees our hero asked by the government to go back to post-US Afghanistan to extract an unamed VIP before the Taliban find hime - he agrees because it will aid his personal wish to try and find an American woman also stranded. And outnumbered and outgunned, is being the last hope of the innocent too much to bear when surviving past sundown seems impossible?

Since discovering the work of Scott Mariani, I have been highly impressed with the series as a whole, as well and many of the individual books.

I love seeing old secondary characters resurface in Ben's life and we see them team up for more adventures.The tight knit group that joins Ben on his rescue of originally Madison and then the teacher and kids have a good background to the story . It's not only having a nice team but also how story is raising interest adding layers of new situations on top of existing ones. I’ve tried to be as unbiased as I can with this review but to put it plainly, I am a bit in love with Ben Hope. I have loved these novels for many years and Mariani keeps them sharp, even this deep into this stellar series, which shows no signs of fading! This is probably the worst, which doesn't make it bad, as it's up against all Scott's great and enduring hero, Ben Hope's previous adventures.
