    an exhilarating tale

    International opera star Leigh Llewellyn sends a message to her former lover Ben Hope that she needs his help. A former SAS solider, Ben immediately visits Leigh. She explains her late brother Oliver who was Ben's friend was writing a biography of Mozart when he suddenly died in Austria under questionable circumstances. She fears for her life too as she thinks her sibling was murdered over the seemingly innocuous book.

    Though he doubts it is foul play, Ben agrees to protect Leigh. However, as he expected to rusticate with his ex lover, Ben revises his opinion when deadly mobsters try to kill them. Apparently the father of Leigh and Ben found a previously unknown Mozart letter dated just before the great composer died. In it Mozart accuses the secret Order of Ra members of odious deeds including assassinations and provoking war. This lethal cabal remains active with Ben and Leigh in their crosshairs for elimination.

    The latest Ben Hope thriller (see The Doomsday Prophecy and The Heretic's Treasure) is an exhilarating tale that is a cross between Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, Harrison Gradwell Slater's Night Music and Dick Adler's The Mozart Code. The story line is fast-paced as Ben and Leigh struggle to stay alive while the deadly operatives of the Order of Ra want them dead.

    Strap your seat belt on...you're in for a ride!

    You already have the gist of the tale, or how it begins. You're thinking about it... Shall simply say "Go for it!" If you are old enough to know Ludlum in his glory days, or got swept up in "The DaVinci Code", you must read this. It is as fast paced as either of these two. His use of words, sometimes sparse, sometimes evocative, always as though you were 'seeing the movie', is well worth it. And his hero, Ben Hope- a mysterious man, with heart, flaws, and the knowledge of guns and fast moving vehiles we all want. I did get so drawn in that I wanted more. 'The Mozart Conspiracy is available in the U.S. in hardcover right now. But there are five other Ben Hope adventures, availlable as ebooks. In a month, I have read three, am on my fourth. Actually, reread two... These books are, as a colleague of mine might say, smart peoples fun. You learn much along the sdventures, and then you hang on to the adventure!
