Summary
  • Hector Cross left behind a career of high risks and warfare when he married his beloved Hazel Bannock. But after his new life is tragically upended, he recognizes the ruthless hand of an old enemy behind the attack. Determined to fight back, Hector draws together a team of his most loyal friends and fellow warriors to hunt down those who pursue him and his loved ones. For he and Hazel have a child, a precious daughter, whom he will go to the ends of the earth to protect. Soon, however, Hector learns that the threat comes not just from his old enemies, but also Hazel's. Brutal figures from her family's past--thought long gone--are returning, with an agenda so sinister that Hector realizes he is facing a new type of adversary. One whose deadly methods and dark secrets will lead him to a series of crimes so shocking that he has no choice but to settle the score.--Dust jacket flap
  • "The master of action-adventure returns with the follow-up to his New York Times bestselling novel Those in Peril starring Hector Cross. Wilbur Smith has won fans the world over for his heart-racing novels that span continents and centuries. For nearly fifty years, his books have hit bestseller lists in the United States --and everywhere else -- and sold millions of copies. As a writer of action-adventure and the African continent, Smith is without peer, and with Vicious Circle he is about to prove that he shows no signs of letting up on the gas pedal. His most recent bestseller, Those in Peril, launched a new contemporary series of thrillers that give Clive Cussler and Stephen Coonts a run for their money. Hero Hector Cross, a tough former soldier who has fought pirates and terrorists in the lawless waters off the coast of Africa, returns in another surefire bestseller. With film rights already acquired for Those in Peril, this new series promises to continue building on Wilbur Smith's history of blockbuster success"--
