Hazel Bannock is heir to the Bannock Oil Corporation, one of the major global oil producers. While cruising the Indian Ocean, her yacht is hijacked by Somalian pirates and her nineteen-year-old daughter, Cayla, kidnapped. The pirates demand a crippling twenty-billion-dollar ransom for her release, and complicated political and diplomatic sensitivities render the major powers incapable of intervening.

With growing evidence of the horrific torture to which Cayla is being subjected, Hazel calls on Hector Cross to help her rescue her daughter. Hector is the man behind Cross Bow Security, the company contracted to Bannock Oil Corporation to provide all their protection. He is a formidable fighting man. Between them, Hazel and Hector are determined to take the law into their own hands.

For nearly fifty years, internationally bestselling author Wilbur Smith has thrilled readers with novels set during the Egyptian era all the way up through the present day. Now, Those in Peril brings his matchless storytelling to bear on the violent, ruthless world of twenty-first-century piracy.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bernie | 5/12/2011

    " An enjoyable read but not one of my favorites by Mr. Smith. I found the plot convincing but the characters just felt, I don't know, plastic maybe. I found there was no depth to our villians and heroes. Again, not a bad book but definatly not one of Wilbur Smith's best in my opinion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ms Anne | 5/10/2011

    " Not Smith's best work - plot is predictable as are the characters. If Wilbur Smith was not a well-established author, this wouldn't have been published.

    Unless you're really looking for an escapist adventure with lots of violence,don't waste your time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Vivek | 5/6/2011

    " Just like a B grade thriller, starts well but looses steam in the middle to complete flat. However just like B grade movies filled with explicit scenes and helps you put off anything else on mind. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Sue | 4/25/2011

    " Didn't finish it! Wilbur Smith was such a great writer, but only got half way through this. Too much explicit sex for my taste, and the 'romance' was very badly written. Unbeleivable characters. Not for me! "
