Wilbur Smith’s Those in Peril Now Available in Paperback

Those in PerilWilbur Smith’s latest novel, the best-selling Those in Peril, is now available in paperback:

Hazel Bannock is the heir to the Bannock Oil Corp, a major leading global oil producer. While cruising in the Indian Ocean, Hazel’s private yacht is hijacked by African pirates. Hazel is not on board at the time, but her nineteen year old daughter, Cayla, is viciously kidnapped. The pirates demand a crippling twenty billion dollar ransom for her release.

Complicated political and diplomatic considerations render the civilized major powers incapable of intervening. When Hazel is given evidence of the horrific torture which Cayla is being subjected to, she calls on Hector Cross to help her rescue her daughter. Hector is the owner and operator of Cross Bow Security, the company which is contracted to provide all of Bannock Oil’s private security. He is a striking and formidable fighting man. Together, in a partnership of lust and desperation Hazel and Hector are determined to take the law into their own hands.
