Publisher's Summary

The Hunt Begins...

Two men are responsible for the death of Hector Cross' wife and only one is left alive: Johnny Congo - psychopath, extortionist, murderer, and the bane of Cross's life. He caught him before and let him go. Now, Hector wants him dead. So does the US government.

Congo is locked up on Death Row in the most secure prison in the free world, counting down the days until his execution. He's got two weeks. He wants out. He's escaped before and knows he can again, and with whizz kid D'Shonn Brown enlisted, he might just have a chance.

Cross, still licking his wounds from his last bruising encounter with Congo, is back and ready for work. In the middle of the rough Atlantic stands oil supertanker Bannock A. Terrorist activity in the area has triggered panic and there's only one person they can trust to protect her.

What is promised as a cakewalk turns out to be much more, a mission that will test Cross to his emotional and physical limits. But a life spent in the SAS and private security has left Cross hard-wired for pain and as he is thrown into the bull pit once more, he will not stop until he has snared his prey. Hector Cross is Predator.

    "Usual Smith"

    I felt the accents were a bit ropey and inconsistent at times, and the plot had a few deus ex machina bits that it could have done without

    "Nice finish to the trilogy. Excellent"

    The majority of it was superb and I thought bits were complicated but in the end. I would definitely recommend A1

    "Another great book"

    Loved the narration of this book. It went hand in glove with the plot. The best HEctor CRoss yet.

    "Good listen"

    Wilbur smith is always worth a rad and I personally think the cross series is the best so it was good to have this third book. If you want a good adventure then give this a go.

    "fabulous"

    narration on point, great voices. Story well worked and tense but some chuckles too. Characters are amazing and believable which makes the ending a little tearful as well as triumphant. loved it

    "Time to retire Wilbur"

    For anyone who was thrilled by the tales of the veldt, this is a squalid little book.
    Listen to the first chapter: if you make it that far.

    "Like older Wilbur Smith - don't bother with this!"
    What would have made Predator better?

    Better story, less constant padding, better reader, more 'believable', less obvious production to swell bank account.


    Has Predator put you off other books in this genre?

    Put me off Wilbur Smith - shame after all these years


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Totally unbelievable


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was disappointment and the feeling of being ripped off - there was no 'spark' however.


    Any additional comments?

    If you liked the early Wilbur Smith books then stay well away from this - absolute rubbish!

    "He has finally lost the plot"
    Do you think Predator needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    NO! - enough is enough, when up to your neck in a swamp turn back


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third in a series which in my opinion has gone down hill from book to book. I have read and enjoyed Wilbur Smith for many years and I purchased the last two in the hope of redemtion but it was not to be. I'm sorry to say he has finally lost it, gratuitous sex, unbelievable storyline and unbelievable charactors all add up to a literary disaster when compared to his earlier works. The only good thing about this experience was the narration - I would have no problem listening to him reading again.

    "Ok"

    I have read many novels by Wilber Smith and always enjoyed how the plot and characters develop as the story unfolds. However there were elements in this novel that just seemed to end abruptly as if the writer got bored. Some of the accents were also odd and seemed stereotypical of how someone from a particular place would speak . This just made me laugh . It's ok but not as good as other novels . Just my opinion of course
