The Hope Vendetta

A Novel

WHAT DOES ZOË BRADBURY KNOW?

At first, only the parents of the lovely archaeologist are concerned. They just want to get in touch with the unpredictable party girl. In fact, Zoë has been kidnapped by a trained team and is being brutally interrogated. The problem: Zoë doesn’t have the answer.

When ex-SAS operative Ben Hope is asked by old friends to find their missing daughter, he tries to stay minimally involved. But when the search erupts into violence, Ben realizes that once again it’s all up to him. While Zoë’s sudden influx of cash right before her disappearance may be related to her recent discovery of an ancient artifact connected to the book of Revelation, the only hard evidence leads from the Greek islands to Savannah, Georgia, then on to Israel and Jerusalem. Gradually, Ben realizes that it’s not just Zoë’s life on the line, but the lives of millions.

However, the shadowy group who are hell-bent on making an end-of-days attack for political gain have made one huge mistake. Because in Ben Hope they are facing the ultimate reckoning. . . .

She was living alone, and it should have been easy to snatch her. But the house was always filled with party guests, and the dancing and drinking was virtually round the clock. They watched, but they couldn’t get close.

So the team planned. Right down to the last detail. Entry,... see more
