Hazel Bannock is the heir to the Bannock Oil Corp, one of the major oil producers with global reach. While cruising in the Indian Ocean, Hazel's private yacht is hijacked by African pirates. Hazel is not on board at the time, but her 19-year-old daughter, Cayla, is kidnapped and held to ransom. The pirates demand a crippling 20-billion-dollar ransom for her release. Complicated political and diplomatic considerations render the civilized major powers incapable of intervening. When Hazel is given evidence of the horrific torture which Cayla is being subjected to, she calls on Hector Cross to help her rescue her daughter. Hector is the owner and operator of Cross Bow Security, the company which is contracted to Bannock Oil to provide all their security. He is a formidable fighting man. Between them, Hazel and Hector are determined to take the law into their own hands.
Tremendous and Riveting
I am an avid Wilbur Smith fan and this my first audiobook did not disappoint.
A bit pricey but throughly enjoyed it and the pace of the content.
Wilbur Smith - Those in Peril
Last read Wilbur Smith about 30 years ago! He is an incredible writer today as he was then but in a global more topical context. His ability to keep the listener/reader on the edge of their seat has kept me from sleep. interwoven storylines of adventure, tragedy, love and extremist terror bring tears, laughter and astonishment. Brilliant.
Those in peril
