    Hazel Bannock is the heir to the Bannock Oil Corp, one of the major oil producers with global reach. While cruising in the Indian Ocean, Hazel's private yacht is hijacked by African pirates.

    When Hector Cross's new life is overturned, he immediately recognizes the ruthless hand of an enemy he has faced many times before: a terrorist group has re-emerged - like a deadly scorpion from beneath its rock.

    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.<

    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
