Love. Loss. Revenge. When Hector Cross's 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.Determined to fight back, Hector draws together a team of his most loyal friends from his former life in Cross Bow Security, a company originally contracted to protect his beloved wife, Hazel Bannock, and her company, the Bannock Oil Corp. Together, they travel to the remotest parts of the Middle East, to hunt down those who pursue him and his loved ones.For Hazel and Hector have a child, a precious daughter, who he will go to the ends of the earth to protect. And brutal figures from the Bannock family's past - thought long-gone - are returning, with an agenda so sinister that Hector realizes he is facing a new breed of enemy. One whose shifting attack and dark secrets take Hector to the heart of Africa and to a series of crimes so shocking they demand revenge. Vicious Circle is another exciting instalment in Wilbur Smith's bestselling Hector Cross novels.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skip it, unless you're in to horror! I usually love Wilbur Smith's work but if this didn't have his name on it I would not think it was written by him. It was unnecessarily graphic, portions of it were repugnant and violent to an unthinkable level. If you are thinking about Smith's wonderful environmental imagery and the beautiful language you wouldn't find it in this book. If you are a Wilbur Smith fan, skip it. If you are lover of violent, graphic or horror movies, you may enjoy this book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful and disgusting. I have enjoyed the character of Victor Cross. But.....spoiler alert...and I am no prude...this book contains rape, gang rape and feeding live women to pigs. I was disgusted. No one should read this ...EVER. I will go back to Clive Cussler for my escapist action novels. Or better yet, try Donna Leon and her detective series about Venice....great characters and wonderful, smart writing. My Dad loved Wilbur Smith but as others say he's probably dead and someone else is writing this foul trash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A disaster, not worth reading This is not one of Wilber's best when you look back on Elephant Song etc, which is an excllent read. The last seventy pages where the worest conclusion to a book I have ever read, they made the first 370 pages mean very very little, exteremly disappointing. I have collectted and read Wilber for the last ten years and have over twenty of his books and am a great fan, but this was the worest book of his I have read and even wonder if it is "our" Wilber's book. His early writing and the ones to read they are truly great stories with great charaters with excellent and exciting stories to keep you turning the pages, but not this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Vicious Circle I have been a Wilbur Smith fan for 20 years and this last ( "last" ) book is an unfitting way for him to stop writing. The book reminded me of a Lee Child, or John Chrisham novel. He seems to want to just get it done. The story line is that of a True Detective book, so although WS writing style is as good as ever, the story just didn't do it for me, I'm afraid. If he does decide to continue with another book, he should stick with what he knows, and researches best.....AFRICA. I miss envisioning the bones crunching and the descriptive animal stalks as I read. I just feel bad that this might be his last book. Not a great read.
