Description

Who is the “Spartan” that the British government wants back from Afghanistan and what makes him so valuable? This time around (she previously featured in The Bach Manuscript), I found Madison’s gung-ho attitude a bit irritating – she doesn’t seem to appreciate that people are risking their lives to help her. 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. and this time there is going to be a nice team even including old friends presented in previous books.

I felt however that the book slumped a bit in the middle with a rather overlong description of Alexander the Great’s Afghan campaign. 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.

Being in Afghanistan again brings back memories of his time in the military, and how nothing much has changed for the people there. I hope these days there will come a woman to stick and accept him for who he is and be there for him. 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 .

However, with the impulsive evacuation of the American troops, the Taliban has taken over the country and imposed their sharia law, implicating and punishing foreign nationals, especially Americans, who held their ground for many years. This is no exception to its predecessors, with an archeological twist to Alexander’s lost city and his hidden treasures.I love seeing old secondary characters resurface in Ben's life and we see them team up for more adventures. It was nice to see Ben Hope back in a military role with comrades rather than being a one man force as he usually is. 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.
