Plot Summary
The Armada legacy is the eighth novel in the Ben Hope series by author Scott Mariani.  A sunken Spanish warship that was part of the Spanish Armada sent to invade England is recovered revealing many treasures.  It is also includes some secret documents that if revealed could change the understanding of British history of the time.  Dr Brooke Marcel is invited to the celebration party by one of her friends, only it turns out that someone else will stop at nothing to get their hands on those documents.  That's when Dr Brooke Marcel is kidnapped and others found dead.  On hearing of his on-off girlfriends disappearance Ben Hope tracks her down in a journey that will take him first to Spain and then to the heart of the Peruvian jungle.

My Review
Don't expect a strong historical conspiracy in this book.  Scott Mariani gave up those pretensions a long time ago.  The connection with the Armada is down to barely a wimper in this novel serving more of as an introduction rather than a key component of the book.  Which is a shame as it is could have been excellent.  What linkage there is is done well although it might be somewhat on dodgy ground.

That said this book is an excellent action novel and in such terms has probably eclipsed that of Jack Reacher or Joe Pickett in that sense.  Mariani draws you into the action and writes it very well.  The writing is definitely a page turner and keeps you reading from the off.  It will be hard to put down this book.
