The Forgotten Holocaust is the 10th book in the Ben Hope series, and although it does make brief references to Ben’s past, it can be read as a standalone novel. It offers a fast paced, action packed adventure with an interesting underlying historical story, the Irish Potato Famine of the late 1840s. This novel takes you back to one of the darkest periods in Irish history and seamlessly weaves the history and action together.
To escape the turmoil in his private life ex-SAS Ben Hope returns to his old haunt in Ireland where he meets Kristen Hall, a young journalist researching the life of Lady Stamford, the wife of an English lord during the time of the Irish Great Famine. However her attention is diverted by something explosive that she has uncovered but before she can tell Ben what that is, she is brutally murdered. Armed only with her abstract notes, her mobile phone and his investigative skills, Ben decides to find out what was the connection between the Irish Great Famine and the important political person in America that she had been contacting and whether it had anything to do with her being murdered.
Scott Mariani never fails to deliver and this is his best book to date. I was both engaged and educated. I am now interested enough to want to learn more about the Irish Potato Famine
I could not put it down until I had reached the end, an absolute page turner.
