Descripción del producto

Those in Peril is the first in the gripping Hector Cross Novels, from Wilbur Smith, the author of When the Lion Feeds.

Hazel Bannock is the owner of the Bannock Oil Corp, one of the major global oil producers. While cruising in the Indian Ocean, her yacht is hijacked by Somalian pirates and her nineteen year old daughter Cayla kidnapped.

Major Hector Cross is an ex-SAS operative and the man behind Cross Bow Security, the company contracted to Bannock Oil to provide all their security. His loyalty to the Bannock family goes beyond the call of duty.

The pirates demand a crippling ransom for Cayla's release, and complicated political and diplomatic sensitivities render the major powers incapable of intervening.

With growing evidence of the horrific torture to which Cayla is being subjected, Hazel calls on Hector to help her rescue her daughter. Between them, Hazel and Hector are determined to take the law into their own hands.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Superb villain and technical details! 3 de julio de 2016
Por Daisey Duke - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
Excellent story. Technical details were superb. The negative reviews are unwarranted. Any hero Hector Cross or James Bond for example is only a success if the villain is equally terrible. Fiction is entertainment and not subject to politically correct individuals. Especially those who have no knowledge of the English language other than what is written and spoken in the US. Those in Peril was excellent and I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy. Well done Wilbur.

1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A life time fan is disappointed... 13 de abril de 2011
Por Michael Barr - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
I read my first Wilbur Smith novel, When the Lion Feeds, when I was in my teens forty years ago. Since this first novel I have been an avid fan of Wilbur Smith, waiting eagerly for his next novel. I have read each more than once, produced a family tree of the Courtney's & Ballantynes and loved the Egyptian novels. I say this only to show that this review has been written by a life time fan and it hurts me to only give it one star. Readers not familiar with Wilbur Smith's previous work will probably find Those in Peril quite a good yarn, though it was extremely obvious by the end of the the first third what was going to happen. It was like watching a TV show made to fit in a one hour time slot. As a matter of fact, I would of made better use of my time watching trash TV than reading this offering from Wilbur Smith.

For those wanting a novel to read whilst on holidays that doesn't require too much intelligence and which will help you pass the time, then consider this but there are better books available. For those fans of Wilbur Smith, don't waste your money. Wait for the next one and hope he has come to his senses and rediscovers himself as a wordsmith. Sorry Wilbur, five stars for everything else you have written and one for Those in Peril.

What a strange book. I've read some W.Smith books before. The privateer style ones were OK and I particularly enjoyed the Egyptian ones. This one is in a league of its own. If a prologue was inserted that explained that all,the characters were transported via a time machine from the 18th Century the dialogue may just have made sense. Who talks like these characters in the 21st century ??? Frankly the language is so archaic it's funny. Layer that over some gratuitous rape themes and it all comes across as muddled anachronistic and well, .......s*** really.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas So much action! 27 de agosto de 2016
Por Gary Breed, NZ - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
This is totally entertaining from the start. We can feel the highs and lows of these people, feel the need for revenge and celebrate each success.
The characters are all "supermen", but don't we all know of someone who could perform like this in real life?

Having spent some years in the Middle East, I readily agree that there, like every country, there are good and bad - perhaps better and worse than those who live in my country.

Thank you, Wilbur Smith, for taking us briefly into another world.

Por G. O. Steele-morgan - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo Compra verificada
Like many I have read all of Wilbur Smith's books many times
I enjoy the adventure and the action even if the dialogue and the love stuff often makes me cringe

Here I just got lost the first part the hero with the unlikely name of Hector Cross is disliked by his rich employer Hazel.
But as her daughter Cayly get kidnapped, he is then the only one capable of sorting the problem out.
The daughter starts of being a pretty revolting figure.

So it's of to the desert to lose a lot of men, with lots of high adventure battles. This parts is readable and pacy.

Then in the middle section Hector and Hazel get married (good job she was not called Victoria). The daughter turns in to the sweetest thing, accepting Hector as step dad and all in the garden is lovely.

If find the pages of description of this nice relationship and the dialogue between the family particularly painful and annoying.

Then avoiding spoliers disaster strikes and it's back to the pirates bay to deal with the threat once and for all. The planning here is very readable, some interesting characters get added. Then the climax falls down a hole and you can see it all coming a long way off.

This is a very violent novel indeed, with some pretty hard scenes to read, but then so was Dark of the Sun or Wild Justice.
The characters remain static through out the book, they don't develop and introspect in the way that others great charachters of his have. There is to much sentimentality on one page to be met with brutality on the next.

It is not unenjoyable though
