Description

A centuries-old mystery. An "accidental" death. A conspiracy that may end in murder. Former British Special Air Service officer Ben Hope is running for his life. Enlisted by Leigh Llewellyn—the beautiful, world-famous opera star and Ben's first love—to investigate her brother, Oliver's, mysterious death, Ben finds himself caught up in a puzzle dating back to the 1700s.
At the time of his death, Oliver was working on a new book about Mozart. Though the official report states that Oliver died in a tragic accident, the facts don't add up. But as Ben and Leigh dig deeper, they find that Oliver's research reveals that Mozart, a notable Freemason, may have been killed by a shadowy and powerful splinter group of the organization. The only proof lies in a missing letter, believed to have been written by Mozart himself. When Leigh and Ben receive a video documenting a ritual sacrifice performed by hooded men, they realize that the sect is still in existence today and will stop at nothing to keep its secrets.
From the dreaming spires of Oxford and Venice's labyrinthine canals to the majes­tic architecture of Vienna, Ben and Leigh must race across Europe to uncover the truth behind the Mozart conspiracy before they become its next victims. In the tradition of Robert Ludlum and Dan Brown, Scott Mariani's The Mozart Conspiracy is an electrify­ing thriller and the start of an exciting new series.

        January 3, 2011
        British author Miriani makes his U.S. debut with the second in his series featuring ex-SAS warrior Ben Hope, a fast, exciting read in The Da Vinci Code tradition. Ben is on his way home from a mission when he receives a message from Leigh Llewellyn, an old flame and international opera star, saying she needs his help. Leigh is the sister of Ben's late friend, Oliver, who was at work on a book on Mozart when he died under mysterious circumstances. When Ben takes Leigh to the English countryside to guard her, deadly thugs attempt to kill them both. A lost Mozart letter, written in 1791 shortly before the composer's death and first discovered by Leigh's father, implicates a shadowy European group known as the Order of Ra, which remains a powerful secret force in Europe today. None of this matters much to either Ben or the reader as he singlehandedly kills his way to the top of the evil cabal.

        September 15, 2011
        In Mariani's sixth Ben Hope thriller, the British soldier-turned-security specialist finds himself looking into the murder of an old friend, whose famous opera singer sister was once his lover. A letter purported to have been written by Mozart leads Hope to a murderous organization run by a cadre of Europe's most powerful men. While Mariani offers several suspenseful, if not quite credible, set pieces, his tale is too derivative. Steven Crossley's somewhat patrician voice and delivery at first seem ill suited to such violent action, but Crossley excels at creating distinctive voices for the characters, especially a chillingly gruff sadistic killer. This should appeal to fans of Dan Brown, Lee Child, and Daniel Silva, whose works Mariani clearly has studied carefully. ["This series launch might appeal to male readers in the mood for a bit of fast-paced action without too much mental exertion," read the review of the Touchstone: S. & S. hc, "LJ" 2/1/11; the mass market Pocket pb will publish in December.—Ed.]—Michael Adams, CUNY Graduate Ctr. Lib.
