Latest Reviews

‘Scott Mariani seems to be like a fine red wine that gets better with maturity!’ - Bestselling Crime

'Mariani's novels have consistently delivered on fast-paced action and The Armada Legacy is no different. Short chapters and never-ending twists mean that you can't put the book down, and the high stakes of the plot make The Armada Legacy as brilliant to read as all the previous novels in the series.' - Female First

'Sunken secrets, psychos in the jungle, a dark twist on a Hitchcockian Vertigo-style obsession - The Armada Legacy is slick, serpentine, sharp, and very very entertaining. If you've got a pulse, you'll love Scott Mariani; if you haven't, then maybe you crossed Ben Hope.' - Simon Toyne, best-selling author of the Sanctus Trilogy

'Authentic settings, non-stop action, backstabbing villains and rough justice - this book delivers. It's a romp of a read, each page like a tasty treat. Enjoy.'
- Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of
The King's Deception

'A fast-paced arcane thriller that will captivate readers with its plot evolution and characterisation.' - Fresh Fiction

'The Mozart Conspiracy hits thrilling, suspenseful notes . . . a rollickingly good way to spend some time in an easy chair.' - USA Today

'The helter-skelter pace kept me hooked like a prize catch . . . if Mariani can type at the pace his novels move, then his PC must have breathed a sigh of relief every time he finished work for the day.' - Crime Squad Reviews
