This book starts its journey with BookCrossing from Delphi, Greece


Ex-SAS major and kidnap recovery specialist Ben Hope is looking for peace in a quiet Spanish town. What he gets instead is the kind of trouble that only a man like him can handle.

Raul Fuentes can’t accept that his sister, Catalina, took her own life. Ben isn’t convinced, but ghosts from his own past compel him to help Raul discover the truth.

What connects Catalina’s apparent suicide to the suspicious fate of three of her fellow scientists? And why do a gang of professional killers follow Ben and Raul wherever they go?

Ben will soon discover the terrible truth: a fraudulent conspiracy to dupe all of humankind. And those responsible will soon find out they’ve met their match."

Originally my rating would be something like 3-4 stars at most, but I think this would be unfair, because The Cassandra Saction is a kind of book that in general I dislike. I found it by chance and I read it as a break among other stuff and surely it was full of hyperbole, tons of armoury, violence, car chases, secret conspirancies, huge rich, stereotypical characters, ridiculous plot. Other people like this stuff, but I don't.
Furthermore I see it's the 12th in a series and some references about our hero's, Ben Hope's past didn't make sense.

Within its genre I guess it was OK, but I still think that authors should try to make their characters at least a bit more believable. There were many silly characters and coincidences at the start of the book, but let's say it was ok-ish till then. Half way through it got far too ridiculous, for example Raul, a teacher and a solar scientist's brother hadn't even heard of sunspots or solar wind? I don't expected him to know all kind of science about these, but at least to have heard the terms before? I'm just a random person in tourism industry with humble hotel management studies and I do know these terms! And then the plot got even more downhill from this point. I don't want to write spoilers, but the bad guys had means to achieve their purposes without all this mess around. The premise was not only far-fetched but well...ridiculous. Furthermore, is it so hard to have a main character a liiitle bit more down to earth and plausible?

The ending didn't seem much of a conclusion to me either. And again it was full of cliche.

Not my type of book, did I say that?
Of course this doesn't mean that it isn't someone else's type of book! So I'll get it on the move soon : )
