9780062279385: Warriors: An Alex Hawke Novel (Alex Hawke Novels)

Five years ago a brilliant American scientist, well known in high-tech military circles, suddenly disappeared without a trace off the streets of Washington, DC.

Now a professor at Cambridge University is murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture methods. Counterspy Alex Hawke teams with former Scotland Yard chief inspector Ambrose Congreve to find the killer, but they soon discover that this death is merely the opening gambit in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinkmanship.

In the United States, the president is behaving erratically and some begin to question his fitness for leadership as hostile exchanges and new technologies ramp up tensions between China, North Korea, and the United States—threatening western military superiority.

With the situation edging closer and closer to the abyss, Hawke must face down a superb Chinese assassin and pull off his most daring mission yet: infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize their advantage . . . or risk the outbreak of World War III.

Review:

“Hawke is . . . strong, shrewd and savvy, with an aplomb not seen since James Bond. In other words, Bond, eat your heart out . . . there’s a new spy in town.” ( NPR)

“Alex Hawke is the new James Bond. Ted Bell is the new Clive Cussler.” ( James Patterson)

“A secret agent who takes you into the danger zone with a ballsy wit that had me hooked.” ( Vince Flynn, bestselling author of The Last Man)

“Ted Bell puts a capital A in adventure.” ( Madison County Herald)

“Bell knows how to build a plot that moves at breakneck speed.” ( Richmond Times-Dispatch)

“China seeks to rule the world in bestseller Bell’s entertaining eighth novel featuring MI6 super-agent Alex Hawke . . . this is a thrilling ride.” ( Publishers Weekly)

“The sheer scope of this high-concept thriller, and the well-placed shocks throughout, make it Bell’s best effort to date. A perfect tale for fans of plot-driven action-adventure and, especially, for the Cussler crowd.” ( Booklist)

“Near the end, a villain exclaims, ‘Then bring me the head of Alexander Hawke!’ Really, there’s no need. When we finish enjoying Warriors, just bring us Hawke’s next lively adventure.” ( Kirkus Reviews)

Warriors, [is] impossible to put down. . . . It’s really expansive, great reading. If you like spy, espionage, mystery-thriller stuff, you cannot get a better book.” (Rush Limbaugh)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. British counterspy Lord Alexander Hawke must rescue a kidnapped American scientist and catch a villainous megalomaniac a man obsessed with horrifying experiments in state-of-the-art warfare in Ted Bell s latest mesmerizing, high-action thriller in his New York Times bestselling series, reminiscent of the very best of Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy, and Daniel SilvaOn the streets of Washington, D.C., a brilliant scientist in the high-tech military industry, the brains behind a revolutionary fighter aircraft prototype in development by the Pentagon, is snatched by masked thugs along with his wife and children and disappears without a trace.Now, five years later, an elderly professor at Cambridge University has been murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture methods. Alex Hawke teams up with former chief inspector Ambrose Congreve, his Scotland Yard colleague and friend, to find the killer, but this death is merely the opening gambit in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinkmanship.In the United States, the president s behavior makes many question his fitness for leadership. Is his mental health deteriorating or is there something far more sinister at work? The answer is crucial, for hostilities are rapidly escalating among China, North Korea, and the United States. At a somber state funeral in Arlington Cemetery, an unmanned drone twice the size of a twin-engine Cessna dives out of the sky and wreaks chaos on a shocked crowd of military and civilian dignitaries. In the East China Sea, a North Korean patrol crew murders four sailors aboard a U.S. Navy vessel. Then China launches vastly advanced fighter jets and a megasubmarine far more sophisticated than any seen before military technology that might leapfrog everything the U.S. and Great Britain now possess.With the situation edging closer and closer to the yawning abyss, Hawke faces a female Chinese mastermind and assassin named Chyna Moon. He must pull off his most daring mission yet: infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize their advantage . . . or risk the outbreak of World War III. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062279385
