It’s Christmas, and on a trip back to the UK to try to sort out his stormy personal life, ex-SAS soldier Ben Hope runs into two old friends. Simeon and Michaela were once his fellow students at Oxford – now they are the Reverend and Mrs Arundel.

Ben senses that Simeon is deeply troubled and frightened, but before the truth can emerge about his secretive research project concerning a mysterious, ancient ‘sacred sword’, both he and Michael are wiped out in a devastating road crash. Convinced that his friends’ deaths were no accident, Ben is propelled on a global quest to unlock the enigma of the sacred sword. At every step, he is pursued by ruthless agents of the sinister organisation that will stop at nothing to acquire it.

In the course of his investigations, Ben will discover an incredible secret, not just about the history of Christianity but about his own past.

BEN HOPE is one of the most celebrated action adventure heroes in British fiction and Scott Mariani is the author of numerous bestsellers. Join the ever-growing legion of readers who get breathless with anticipation when the countdown to the new Ben Hope thriller begins …


  • Loved it!

    By Katie Morrison
    Fantastic author that I discovered through iBooks! Every book is brilliant! Complete page turner!
  • Brilliant.

    With only one more book to read, I feel excited to know what Ben Hope will find himself facing next. Thoroughly enjoyed the series so far and can't wait to start The Armada Legacy hoping it will be as good as the rest. A shocking revelation that I didn't see coming, made The Sacred Sword a real page turner for me and kept me gripped throughout.
  • The Sacred Sword.

    By Mischa's ma
    Thoroughly enjoyed the book from start to finish, fast paced and full of action. Not quite up to Mr Mariani's best, Ben Hope would usually be a little more weary of using a credit card that could be traced. Loved it all the same, and waited with Baited breath for his latest book. Good read, great value for money and definitely worth a read.
  • Amazing

    By Maffw
    Another amazing addition to the Ben Hope series. Please keep writing and keep them coming.
  • Great story...disappointing end

    By Ginge1234567898765432
    I thaught the story was excellent but the ending was a bit pants hence the 4 stars. I'm guessing the ending of this story will carry on at the beginning of the next one with what happens when he fetches Jude
  • Just ok

    By Blodyn01
    Not my favourite Ben Hope novel. The story just seemed to drag along.
  • Best so far

    By Mietzsche
    Well worth the wait. All the main characters are interesting, the different stories forming the plot are engaging and intertwined and the mysterious 'sacred sword' allows Scott to venture into an intriguing interpretation of early Christian communities... besides, we find out something really unexpected about Ben Hope that he was not aware of... and that will deeply change his life and personality. All in all a great book, truly enjoyable. Probably the best in the series, so far (I've given it four stars to save the five stars for an even better Ben Hope story)!
  • Stunning

    By hengistrob
    Another great story from Scott Mariani. Ben Hope feels real and there is a great ongoing back story, whilst keeping you fascinated the threads of the main characters and their interactions. Almost managed to read it in one go, but sleep forced me to wait and finish it. Why do we have to wait another year? Oh yes, because the next one will be at least as good. :-)
  • Another fab read

    By Ordie66
    Yet another great instalment in the Ben Hope series and again does not disappoint. Fast paced with a little bit more info on Ben. The one downside? Now have to wait until next year for my next Ben Hope fix. Let's hope there's another e-book in between.
  • Awesome, awesome, awesome!
