Book: Wilbur Smith - Those In Peril

18 March 2011

Wilbur Smith’s latest offering features a beautiful heiress, a rugged hero and a kidnap drama on the high seas.

Nineteen-year-old Cayla, daughter of oil tycoon Hazel Bannock, is kidnapped by Somali pirates who demand a $20-billion ransom.

With the American government reluctant to intervene Hazel has to take matters into her own hands and co-opts her company’s security boss, Hector Cross, to help her. And it seems she’s picked the perfect man for job.

Hector, a lean, mean fighting machine who likes jumping out of planes and firing guns, readily agrees to go to Somalia to rescue Cayla. But the people behind the abduction have a secret agenda. Things are about to get very messy – and bloody.

Packed with plenty of action and intrigue, this is vintage Wilbur Smith. Fans will love it.
