On the streets of Washington, D.C., a brilliant scientist, the brains behind a revolutionary fighter aircraft prototype in development by the Pentagon, is snatched by masked thugs and disappears. Now five years later, an elderly professor at Cambridge University has been murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture. Alex Hawke teams up with Scotland Yard former Chief Inspector Ambrose Congreve to find the killer, but this death is merely the opening gambit in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinksmanship.
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 between China, North Korea, and the United States, as China launches a vastly advanced fighter 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 infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize their advantage . . . or risk the outbreak of World War III.
Performed by John Shea

WARRIORS is No. 9 in New York Times Bestselling author Ted Bell's series of Alex Hawke Thrillers. Early reviews say it all: "Far and away the best Hawke yet!" A resurgent, militaristic China has built a secret fleet, a wolf pack of the most stunningly powerful weapons delivery systems since the invention of undersea naval warfare. How did China leapfrog our technology so brilliantly...and so quickly? Hawke faces his most difficult challenge ever as he and his soldiers of fortune embark for China and North Korea on a do or die mission with zero margin for failure.They are on a desperate search for a man who disappeared without a trace from the streets of Georgetown four years earlier. A man, Hawke believes, who holds the key to the balance of military power in the Pacific...and the world. His mission takes him from the incredibly lavish retreats of the Chinese Communist Party elites and deep inside the insane world of North Korean death camps, far more horrific than even the barbaric Nazi camps of World War II. One man has the world on his shoulders once more. And this time, the weight may be too much for even Lord Alexander Hawke to bear. ON SALE APRIL 1ST, 2014.From the Back Cover:
