Summary

Wild Justice is an adrenaline-filled thriller with an extraordinary hero at its heart, from best-selling author Wilbur Smith.  

'As he ducked he heard the familiar sound, like a giant ripping heavyweight canvas, an automatic weapon throwing bullets at a cyclic rate of almost two thousand rounds a minute, and the bullets tore into the side of the Maserati, beating in the metal with an ear-numbing clangour, while glass exploded in upon Peter like the glittering spray as a storm-driven waves strikes a rock. Glass chips pelted across his back and stung his cheek and the back of his neck. They sparkled like a diamond tiara in his hair.'  

The hijacking of a jumbo jet off the Seychelles galvanises antiterrorist chief Peter Stride into the action for which he has spent a lifetime training. But even in the hail of bullets which follows, he knows that this is only the beginning of a nightmare. Stride is the one man who might find the twisted genius who holds the world hostage - if only his every move were not anticipated by the enemy....

Wild Justice

More twists and turns than the labyrith at Chartres. I haven't read a Wilbur Smith for a long time, an forgot his love for long descriptions. And rather gratuitous sex scenes.
The book could have been half the length and not lost any of the basic plot. However, it is a wild ride, so just lose yourself and go with the flow.
Locals always hate the accents, so I will just mention that the South African is the standard generic mix of mostly Australian with a touch of Afrikaans and New Zealand. Fortunately, there's not much of it.
The reader made a valiant attempt, the story is a cracking yarn, and the editing is mostly good.

An exciting listen

Really enjoyed this fast paced book which certainly kept you guessing. The narrator certainly brought it to life with his lovely melodious and clever accents - fantastic, thank you.

Excellent read

Once again an excellent read from a master storyteller. The narration was also good.

The yarn is believable from end to end. Looking froward the next book in this series.

Laborious

Good story but swamped and stuck in the mud by endless, verbose, unnecessary, descriptive passages. I was bored with it after half way but trudged on to the obvious ending .

more vivid descriptions and good story but unsatis

I love Wilbur Smith's writings for his description if Africa and detailed stories. This book though offered a less satisfying ending.
