    After much debating and considering I have decided to tackle Scott Mariani’s best selling Ben Hope series Where better to begin than in the beginning while Hope was still an active member of the SAS? After an intense tour in Ira Hope seeks to enjoy some of his downtime in Wales However it’s 2003 and the world is still on edge from the attacks in America and one that shook London Ben discovers that a close friend and former colleague crashed a small plane between the Cayman Islands in an apparent act of suicide Unsure how Nick Chapman could ever have done something so outlandish Hope heads there to sift through the ashes and the blowback of the scandal Soon after he arrives Hope meets up with Chapman’s daughter who is eually as baffled about the suicide even though there is apparent evidence of Nick’s depression within the medicine cabinet Before his eyes Hilary Chapman is mowed down and her mobile phone is stolen the only piece of evidence that Hope has showing that Nick was aware that something was going on As he tries to piece things together Hope learns that Nick was a popular pilot and had no reason to do anything so rash After the authorities prepare their final report all the passengers from that doomed flight are accounted for when cross referencing the company’s sales save one; Larry Moss Jumping on this Hope seeks to track down Moss and who he might have been Could this thirteenth passenger hold the key to the entire debacle? A highly curious opening piece in the Ben Hope series this short story surely has my interest piued and will surely do the same for many others who have been wondering about the origins of the Ben Hope character and how get got out of the SASWhen a friend of my suggested I try Mariani’s series I was uick to take up the challenge as I have heard much about Ben Hope over the years It is hard to put a finger on how to describe Ben Hope for this is only a drop the bucket of the overall character development I see a lot of other characters with whom I am familiar but Mariani has done a wonderful job of keeping things somewhat uniue Hope has no family no ties outside his military work and seems than willing to help those he calls friends With a sleuthing ability Hope is sure to uncover many mysteries as the series progresses which has me very interested in seeing where things might go This short story lays the groundwork for what is sure to be a great collection I enjoyed the uick pace and the story’s constant advancement One can only hope that the remaining short stories to begin this collection will keep me as interested before diving into a full fledged piece of writingKudos Mr Mariani for hooking me already I cannot wait to see where you will take Hope and how you will develop his character in the many novels to come Lovehate the review? An ever growing collection of others appears at

    A uick read with lots of action the main character Ben Hope is a strong fighter sort of a Jack Reacher type who seems like he'd just as soon kill someone as anything else He has no problem taking on multiple strong armed killers and is pretty unforgiving if he doesn't like a person Sometimes he seems a bit too uick to kill someone who may or may not be guilty but at least he's on our side I'll probably try reading one of the full length books to see what I think

    I’m wondering if I can claim some sort of compensation from Mr Mariani for the number of dinners I’ve burned because I picked up one of his books for ‘five minutes’ while things were cooking They greatly accelerate the passage of time whilst simultaneously diverting the attention from say the smell of smoke from the kitchenPassenger 13 e book preuel no less absorbing and action packed as the count them seven books in the Ben Hope series and reuiring no prior reading of said books to pick up If you have read any of the others neither does it spoil any of those Now it is a preuel so Ben’s a bit younger and a little bit greener than readers of those seven books are used to But that’s the thing about Ben – he learns fast acts fast and adapts fast Almost as fast as he drinks his single malt in fact which I’m fairly sure he was weaned onYes we see the traps coming but as ever it’s not about the getting caught it’s about the getting out again otherwise we’d not see them either and our Ben is nothing if not resourceful Fans of the series know that Mariani isn’t afraid to make the root of the mystery as shady and far reaching as we dare believe Passenger 13 gives food for thought that will make the day of any conspiracy theorist out thereIt’s interesting to see what happened before The Alchemist’s Secret and just what drove Hope to follow his own path You might know it would be no simple matterAnother rip roaring Mariani mayhem fest I burned not only dinner but also dessert

    From PASSENGER 13A novella by Scott MarianiFive years before the events of The Alchemist's SecretJune 2003 the world is still on fire in the aftermath of 911 Fresh from the bloody conflict of the Second Gulf War SAS soldier Ben Hope returns to Britain for some RR leave only to find himself embroiled in an intrigue deadlier than anything he's encountered on the battlefields of IraWhen a passenger aircraft piloted by Ben's former army comrade Nick Chapman crashed off the Cayman Islands killing everyone on board the official line was that Chapman committed suicide But things don't add up and Ben's old friend is barely in his grave before unfolding events point to something far bigger and sinister going on What did Chapman witness that powerful forces would do anything to suppress?

    Ah Ben is just as crazy as always and that's what I love about him I think he's my true soulmate why such perfect humans only exist in books? because I'm just as crazy as him We'd be perfect for each other DI interrupted the reading of these series because I don't have yet the eight book and I was postponing it for some time but soon I'll catch up again I loved to read how everything started about Ben the exact reason for him uitting the army Well I do understand why and he made the right decision The private sector is better for him Passenger 13 is one great title of a book Especially for a thriller it has to grab the attention from the very first moment It should be both intriguing and with a bit of a hint but not too much After all you don't wanna give too many clues about the subject if it's meant to be mysterious not like Excalibur or Atlantis or something else very famous historicallyI noticed how at this time Ben was beginning to develop some of his problem solving abilities which we're very familiar with in the main series But he's one kind of a badass character and I really enjoy his rather too honest sarcastic humour somewhat like mine He makes me laugh out loud and sometimes it's too hard to resist not to laugh when I'm in public like public transport But anyway you have to read this series you'll enjoy the plots and Ben Hope I guarantee it

    Audio Book 4 hours 50 minutes 4 stars out of 5I don't know why but I appear to have neglected Scott Mariani's Ben Hope books and I have the whole catalogue in my audio books library So I listened to Passenger 13 which was written as a stand alone eBook in 2011 and is a preuel to the 16 Ben Hope series and I thoroughly enjoyed it I was a little sceptical at first but as I was laid up on bed rest I stuck with it and found it very hard to hit the pause button on the iPod when I was reuired to eat drink take medications etc At least Ben could accompany me whenever I attended to nature's calls This book gave me every reason to add Ben Hope books to my iPod as I am sure I will enjoy them in the future

    LaughableBeyond satireI finished this only to witness the great depths it managed to reach Anything that manages to mention 911 Belfast Derry Ira the SAS and planetary scheme's to overthrow Government's in the space of about 3000 words isn't worth the effort Seriously I'm only thankful it was an Prime book as I would never have forgiven myself for exchanging money for this drivel
