    " Yay! The final of the four couriers from India have finally made it back to England with the damning evidence that will help them bring down the Black Cobra. The action is good, the travel is exciting, and there are plenty of plot twists and unexpected action. I thought this was a really satisfying conclusion to this quartet. "

    " The fourth and last book in the Black Cobra quartet does not disappoint! and the plot twist at the end--so didn't see that coming! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 12/11/2013

    " Stephanie Laurens is one of my favorite authors.I enjoyed all of the novels of the Black Cobra Quartet.I tell to get them all and treat yourself to a edge of your seat to find out who the Black Cobra is and I know you won't believe who it is!!! Other novels to read are Bastion Club Novels & Cynster Novels. "

    " Boat travel included as a strong element- not my thing. I like the direct Cynster series better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Meier | 10/19/2013

    " This was a great final chapter to the series, which I've found isn't always the case. Simon Prebble as the narrator for the audio book makes it even more fascinating! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 10/9/2013

    " I agree with the others. Not as exciting as I would have expected. Is SL getting tired of the genre? Still a good and enjoyable book. I should have expected the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 9/4/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sho | 11/2/2011

    " I bought this because this was on sale and this was written by the author of Cynster series. Well hmmm I have to say the only REAL fun part was the last bit where the Cynsters appear to save the day. Even though this is a part of a series, I don't think I will be buying the other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joycee | 10/23/2011

    " It was a fitting (and not so unpredictable, I think) end to the series. I liked this installment best, of the Black Cobra line. "
