Publisher's Summary

From the number one best-selling author. 

Ex-SAS operative Ben Hope decided to give up rescuing kidnap victims in favour of the theology studies he abandoned years before. He should have known that fate would decide differently. 

Searching for missing biblical archaeologist Zoë Bradbury, Ben finds himself embroiled in his riskiest mission yet. What is the ancient secret that Zoë uncovered? And just who is willing to do anything to protect it? 

The investigation leads Ben from Greece to the American Deep South and the holy city of Jerusalem, and he soon discovers that it's not just his and Zoë's lives on the line but those of millions, threatened by a fundamentalist plot to gain ultimate power. The stakes are terrifyingly high as Ben races to prevent a disaster that could kick-start apocalyptic events as foretold by the book of Revelation....

Very scary

This was a difficult story to work through, quite brutal, which is what I have come to expect of the ordeals Ben Hope puts himself through but also wondered why the reader was allowed to foresee the doom-laden issues that the characters did not... Ben Hope is usually right up there on a knife's edge, anticipating the challenges, but this one showed him more fallible than usual. A preview of the following volume is included at the end and I intended to go directly to the next story, however I could not find it anywhere in the search options available and eventually had to skip to volume 5, which is disappointing as I prefer to read them in chronological order, for the background continuity. I have had to pause listening to volume 5 as I needed to read something more lighthearted to balance things out. Maybe volume 4 will materialise while I put 5 on hold.....??

A super, edge of your seat thriller...!

Just when Ben Hope thought his life was going to get a little quieter, he's thrown right back into the thick of it... This time he's helping an old friend find his missing daughter. Things quickly escalate, and Hope realises there's something very big and very dangerous in play. A catastrophic plot which could see the world thrown into another global war. The Doomsday Prophecy is the third in Mariani's Ben Hope series. It's superbly written, with some real edge of your seat action. Once again Hope battles against his inner demons, whilst all the time displaying the ruthlessness that year's of special forces training has instilled in him. Highly recommended... Very well narrated by Colin Mace.

Boys own adventure.

Just take a time out and enjoy the ride! A rip roaring yarn which I listened to in one sitting, actually one day and two long dog walks! Escapist action that keeps you wanting the next chapter.

Hope for the future!

Enjoyable escapade through the Bible's Revelations. With guns, maniacal despots and the obligatory love interest of course. Vote Hope!

Great story with the usual Mariani flare. Very enjoyable & well narrated. I’m so glad the Ben Hope books are audiobooks... I’m going through each adventure very quickly.
