A fast paced thrilling story of kidnap, power struggles, political machinations, bribery and religion. Ben Hope is his usual magnificent well trained one man fighting machine and war zone rolled into one. At times I did wonder why he was eliminating so many people just for one spoilt selfish bratty rich girl??? However as always the book was a page turner with unexpected twists along the way. It helps that Ben Hope is gorgeous, caring and heroic and wants to see truth come to light. Another grea ...more

It’s time to play a game of “Make up your own generic adventure title!”.

Pick one word from the left column and one word from the right column below:

Beethoven Conspiracy
Cairo Secret
Hindenburg Seal
Hitler Legacy
Newton Treasure
Oprah Cypher
Churchill Code
Kennedy Prophecy
Gandhi Relic
Einstein Curse


Combine the two words with “The” prefixing them and there you go. Title created and the plot now needs to be loosely based on those words. Example:

The Gandhi Relic - Gandhi’s flip flop is secretly hidd

Tuve que continuar con la saga porque de verdad me gusta. Y me sigue gustando. Pienso que éste fue el más ambicioso de los que he leído, aunque no me atrapó tanto como los dos anteriores. En este, Ben Hope se trata de retirar de su «ajetreada vida», pero algo surge y tiene que volver a la marcha andante de su desastrosa profesión.

Me he fijado que la experiencia con el armamento de Scott Mariani siempre está presente en todas sus novelas. Y en esta más. Es interesante la descripción cuando quepa

The Doomsday Prophecy is a great romp taking out hero Ben Hope through loads of different great locations the investigative research Scott Mariani put into this novel is considerable and should be lauded.
The book has a rather depressed hero throughout the story which does reduce the enjoyment somewhat as poor Ben had recently had a dreadful loss in his life and is finding hard to move on, this guy is fictional, and the troupe is rough, rugged hero carrying loads of problems. I think maybe Ben wa

Thrills and spills and all are okay but this is like screenplay turned into a novel. Anything can be done in a book. No expense is involved no matter how fantastic. So what this book needed was more research into Revelation and Christian extremist politics and less words about helicopters crashing.

As with the first 2 books, this is action packed, fast paced and enjoyable. However, issues are starting to form, the luck of the hero, the ease of outsmarting the bad guys, there's no real anticipation of what might happen next. Its things like this that that will not raise these books to more than just an easy action series.

n excellent thriller

Each these books seem to be pacifier than the last. I really thought that they couldn't get any better but th have! They are addictive. Ben Hope is a multifaceted character. A tough man with a softer side. This character has grown with the books. A really well drawn character.

Fast paced , high action well written, couldn't put down till

This is one of those books full of unstoppable action that you can’t put down till you finish it. More or less like Matthew Rilley but with much more realism and an unforgiving hero. It's the third book of the series so I ran into a broken and depressed Ben hope trying to change his life and failing badly when a bomb on Greece puts him on a path of death and revenge. I loved it, lots of action, some history and an excellent character im looking forward to follow if I can get my hands on the next ...more

As the third in the Ben Hope series, we’re expecting much more from the Doomsday Prophecy – we kind of know what Hope is capable of and we know just how far reaching conspiracies can be. We want the thrills and spills, we want to wonder whether these things might actually be happening out there, and we want a little bit more besides. It’s an addiction of sorts, the preferred fix for armchair adrenaline junkies.

The Doomsday Prophecy keeps us waiting a little longer for the action and the real int

This book really did start well... I swear! It was interesting and mysterious enough to hook you in. Desperate for answers, I whizzed through the pages, sucking it all in up till the point the entire story turned out to be a bummer. All was well until the character reveals that the main element of mystery.. the doomsday prophecy is a HOAX! Yes... nothing but a hoax which caused the macabre death of several characters, a few good blow ups, stress and heartbreaks and the abandonment of Mr. Hope's ...more

So what appears as the second in the Ben Hope series in the US (The Mozart Conspiracy being the first), is actually the 3rd in the whole series in the UK. Of course from Mariani each book is somewhat stand alone, but I do like to start at the beginning of series.

This book picks up after the events of the previous, Ben in despair and deciding to go back to school as a theology student. Of course his old past catches up to him and he defers a job to a friend. This seemingly small and quick job tur

Trying to do this without giving anything away...This is the third in the Ben Hope series and the third I’ve read in less than two weeks. I’m enjoying the series – it’s your usual run of the mill Dan Brown/Steve Berry/ Matt Rollins etc but I like those books and more of the same is good enough for me. They are easy reads with lots of chapters keeping you on the edge of your seat. I actually really like the character of Ben – he is one of my favourites from this genre - probably second to Robert ...more

If you like non-stop action and blood-drenched adventure, then you will love book three of Mariani's Ben Hope series (it goes by two names depending on the release date: first released as the Doomsday Prophecy and then titled the Hope Vendetta upon re-release). Standard action thriller fare spiced up nicely with Mariani's prose and the view into the thoughts rattling around Ben Hope's mind. Throw in some of the goriest but well-written fight sequences, scenic locales and earth-scattering biblica ...more

BEWARE of spoilers. One man's bookflap summary is another man's spoiler.

There's something here for readers of both gender stereotypes: high body count and lead-per-minute for the guys; a handsome/accomplished/sensitive hero in Ben Hope, who is unattainable for the women who swoon over him -- not because he's gay or sexually dysfunctional, but because he's apparently devoted to some idealistic higher end, plus is still pining for a dead fiancee (or wife - I can't recall which).

Anyway, I thought t

Another great Ben Hope book. I love these books. Great story that ramps on at a great pace with just enough of all the right ingredients. Definitely be reading more in the Ben Hop series in the near future!!

It has been a while since I read the Mozart Conspiracy, so I was a little fuzzy on some of the background details. An exciting non-stop action story, but a bit too much gore, killing, and blood for me.

"Still reeling from a devastating personal loss, ex-SAS operative and hero for hire Ben Hope has decided to put down his gun for good and return to the theology studies he had abandoned years ago. When his professor and friend asks him to help find his missing daughter, archaeologist Zoë Bradbury,

I don't have too much to say.

I'm not really a thriller/spy reader. I liked the message Mr. Mariani was trying to send and it was an interesting concept. At one point I was curious on what was happening and whom was behind it.

My biggest annoyance was the portrayl of Zoe Bradbury. Mr. Mariani had a lot of opportunities with this character. She could've been a serious academic that was in need of money, an intelligent yet ruthless person seeking money, even a completely fraudelent biblican schola

This is the third in the "Ben Hope" series. I have not read the previous books. There's a major giveaway about what happened at the end of (presumably) the previous book, but otherwise this works perfectly well as a standalone thriller. Ben is an ex-SAS hero who has enrolled as a theology student but gets recruited to look for a friend's missing daughter. The daughter is a reputed archeologist who has disappeared from a party in Greece. The hunt will lead Ben from Greece to Georgia to Montana. T ...more

Although I love Scott Mariani's work, I have read some Ben Hope books out of order and I'm not sure if that was my problem here. There is no doubt that the author and character of Hope evolve with the progression of the series, but this one was a little lackluster in terms of the over-arching story. I like Mariani's books because they are rooted in something real but mysterious and secretive, the history element provides a foundation for the story to build on, and even though facts may be embell ...more

This book is more about people trying to make Biblical prophecy come true and how Hope gets entangled trying to stop the bad guys from manufacturing an incident in Jerusalem. It addresses some very real concerns in America today. Today many evangelical christians send support to Israel in the hopes of facilitating end times prophecy. They don't actually believe in Israel as a nation, but they believe it needs to be there in order for the Bible prophecies to come true.

Hope becomes embroiled in a

This is the best Ben Hope book so far I have read and they were all great. This one concerns a friend of Bens' whose daughter had gone missing in Corfu. As Ben was going back to study Theology he asked a friend to go to Corfu to investigate. This friend's investigations worried him and asked Ben for help. Ben joined him but they got caught up in a bomb blast. Ben's investigation took him to America and the Christian movements involving the interpretation of The Book Of Revelations and the "end o ...more

Feels like I don't know enough about Ben Hope. Wish that I've gotten to read the first book first but heyyy it's still okay because I still understood the story even though Ben's background is murky and I don't know much on why he feels a certain way. The storyline is just so-so and the characters are just okay-ish, it's just a decent ride for me but I know that this book could be more. Maybe I should start reading Ben Hope's first two books, because I'd still like to give this series a chance. ...more
