Ben Hope makes for a great male protagonist. He's SAS trained, intelligent, focused to the point of bloody mindedness, effective in getting the job done but reckless and prone to leaving a high body count behind him. In this story Ben is reunited with his ex-girlfriend and old love Leigh. Their story runs amidst the main narrative. Unfortunately though it was lacking i Another great mystery from Scott Mariani. Unfortunately though it was lacking in heart for me most of the time and the climax of their story felt rushed and somewhat unnecessary!
Which left me feeling disappointed. As always though the author tells a great story with plenty of action, shocks and plot twists galore. A must read for any crime thriller fans. The theory on this may be considered a bit disturbing, has some violent discriptions some involving sacrifice type rituals. Overall it held my attention, not an easy task, it is suspensful story, keeps you on edge, and just when you think its over, something else happens, frustratingly suspenseful and intriqueing. The interview with the author at the end gives good insight to the idea of the story, and some there are some interesting and questionable information about Mozart as well.
If you like conspiracy theories and suspense, and don't mind some violence and swearing, then I would reccomend it for adult reading. I downloaded this as a free ebook from Amazon yesterday and spent most of last night and all of today reading it. I like thrillers, and this was certainly a well-written, interesting page-turner. Because it was free I had low expectations of it, but I couldn't have been more mistaken, and am already looking to get other books by this author who I had not encountered before.
What I liked about it: It was complex, but fast, and executed in a way that didn't confuse. I genuinely didn't want to put it down and wanted to know what happened next. It didn't seem trite, banal, or lazy. The author studied Modern Languages at Oxford, and it showed in the quality of the writing - accessible, but with precision and class. I cared about them. Although not having the riddling tease and complexity of The Da Vinci Code, there were objects and people to find and puzzles to solve, spread across countries.
And of course, there were the Freemasons! My reason for not giving it five stars? It was based in historical plausibility, but there were an awful lot of convenient things in it that were necessary for the fast moving plot, but which seemed annoyingly just too implausibly convenient - the brother with the boat, the bent shotgun barrel, Eve and the car crash, for example.

So, of course I was intrigued. However, the further I got into the book, the more I realized that by the end I was probably still going to be able to count the number of references to Mozart on both hands.

Merely a catalyst for the trials and errors of ex-military, current muscle-for-hire, rescuer-of-the-innocent Ben Hope. The whole story was based on a letter suggesting that Mozart wasn't just sick, but was poisoned, murdered by the Freemasons.

Because, of course he was. I guess because of that, the book had more to do with the Freemasons than Mozart, but then maybe someone should have realized that the title and book jacket are a little misleading. Maybe I'm just to attached to that goofy, music-composing bastard. It was one after another failed attempt at saving the day. I mean, I realize that that's probably more realistic than the hero succeeding at everything he does, but come on. You're supposed to be entertaining me, not making me sigh and roll my eyes because the bad guys keep getting the leg up.

Convents were burned, children kidnapped, love interests and best friends murdered, and heroes tricked by a sex slave, I might add and abducted. And this was like close to pages of the book. THEN, oh, then, once Ben escapes and can put shit in order again You're sitting here telling me details of shooting a shotgun with a bent barrel, effects of being essentially roofied, being in a car with a cop when the enemy's car crashes into yours, ripping it apart I honestly skimmed over the last few chapters, just to get through them, praying the payoff would be worth it.
Finally, I got to the last chapter, and everything seemed okay. The hero had scars, but he won.

AND he got the girl who turned out not to be dead after all. And then suddenly, one of the crazies he had to fight off during the final showdown turns up not dead after all either , and KILLS the girl. Ben gives chase in a canal in Venice. The last paragraph of the book was essentially "She was dead. And it hurt Ben. And then he climbed out of the boat.
I should give this book 1 star, but up until about page , it was honestly interesting. I just wish I had led to something worthwhile. I should have known when the book cover touted it as similar to "The Da Vinci Code. View all 5 comments.

We are all missing a huge thing here. The thing is that Dan Brown is working on the discover of the history event. Scott Mariani is working more on the story, than on the facts. In fact, he didn't explained who killed Mozart, he lets that case on our imagination.
This is the only book that I have read from Scott Mariani, so I can't say much about his style, but however I expected more from an Oxford professor. Maybe it's because the translation in Macedonian was bad, so I can't say because I haven't read the English version.
So correct me if I'm wrong. About my grade 4 , I really loved the story, maybe because it ended like no one expected. I was devastated from Li's death at the end. But I didn't give it 5 because as I said, I didn't like the style and although I loved the story, it didn't amazed me. Apr 14, Cheryl rated it liked it. Oliver was in Austria conducting research on Mozart.
He had come up with the theory that Mozart was murdered by the Freemasons. Leigh decides to pick up where her brother left off. What Leigh and Ben discover will have them running for their lives. The Mozart Conspiracy is both music to by ears and a breath of fresh air!
This book is the second Ben Hope novel but the first one I have read. It can be read as a stand alone novel. The first book is The Alchemist Secret. The beginning started out at a rapid pace but than the story line started to slow down and than it would pick up again when it would flash to the past. I thought the ending was alright. Though, I liked that author, Scott Mariani played on the idea of a famous icon like Mozart being murdered.
I do plan to check out the first book. Jan 09, Monika rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I really loved this book. I fell in love with it. The story, the plot, the characters. Especially with Ben Hope. He's just perfect in my opinion. He's strong, intelligent, determined, sensible, sensitive and handsome. The way he goes through the whole situation is really amazing. I don't believe there's such a man in real life.
I really expected that there would be more about Mozart and his death, but it's okay. The end was heartbreaking, I couldn't stop my tears. I'll get some more books from S I really loved this book.

Enlisted by Leigh Llwellyn a world famous opera star and Ben's first love he is investigating her brothers mysterious death. The official line states that her brother Oliver died while investigating Mozart's death but the facts don't add up.
Oliver's research reveals that Mozart a freemason may have been killed by a splinter group of the cult. The only clue is a letter written by Mozart himself. When Ben and Leigh receive video evidence of a ritual sacrifice being performed by hooded men they realize the cult is still alive and will stop at nothing to remain secret. Now Ben and Leigh must forget the past and race across Europe to uncover the truth.
This book starts a little slow but turns into another page turner from Scott Mariani. Jul 06, Alexandra rated it liked it. Sadly I didn't think this was as good as The Alchemist's Secret, which wasn't as good as the prequels, but I'll continue in the faith that the later books get better I think the romance elements need knocking off, at best they just get in the way of the investigating, like we get the description of how beautiful a woman is but the actual investigation is done "off screen"?? But ultimately, the good bits were good and I'm happy to carry on to the next one.
I enjoyed this novel, although even now I'm not quite sure whether I'm a fan of its ending. While there is a certain degree of 'action' formula to this and a couple of instances of smart people doing dumb things , the writing style flows well and is quick to escape into if you know what I mean. I was particularly intrigued to read the author's end notes and casting 'ideals' as in movie actors who could play the characters.

This purportedly Dan-Brown-esque expose of Freemasonry contains very little of either Mozart or conspiracy; it reads almost like a parody of the genre. There are bodies everywhere, most the result of some very creative and gory misbehavior.
