'The Lost Relic'
ISBN No-13: 978 1 84756 197 8
If you are looking for a story that contains, adventure, thrills, conspiracy, terror, drama and a touch of romance, then a new book due to be released shortly called ‘The Lost Relic’, has it all!
‘The Lost Relic’ written by Scott Mariani, is the sixth book in The Sunday Times bestselling series featuring ex-SAS hero and former theology scholar Ben Hope.
Without divulging any spoilers in relation to this particular story, the tale begins when Ben Hope unwittingly walks into a deadly mission while visiting a former SAS comrade in Italy. When becoming involved as a witness to a brutal gallery robbery, where a seemingly worthless sketch was the principal target, little did Ben Hope know that he would become embroiled in a conspiracy that would involve a Russian gang, their Italian partners, the Carabinieri and the British Serious Organised Crime Agency!
This is the first book written by Scott Mariani that I have actually read and the story held my attention right from the beginning to the very end. Once started, this book is difficult to put down!
The historical detail within this story has obviously been very well researched by Scott, and blends in well with his tale as it unfolds. This is a fast paced story with plenty of adventure and twists, and is not for the faint-hearted in places!
This book is an excellent read, and I will not be at all surprised if it fairly quickly reaches the top of the book charts when it is released by its publisher Avon, on 20th January 2011. In my humble opinion, this is a 'must' read book!!
