The latest Hawke espionage thriller is an exhilarating tale

Prior to his last mission, British spy Alex Hawke met Russian artist Anastasia Korsakova on a Bermuda beach while on R&R. He falls in love with her, but his case inside the New Russia puts him against her father Count Ivan Korsakov. While he completed the mission, his beloved Anastasia dies (see Tsar).

Almost a year later, Hawke remains depressed with his only companion a bottle of rum that rarely numbs the pain inside his heart. He wants nothing to do with the espionage game until his royal friend Prince Charles begs him to help as someone threatens to assassinate the Royal family. Normally one to ignore such intimidation, Charles explains that somehow the culprit left a tome with a signature identical to the one belonging to his late uncle, Lord Mountbatten, who was murdered three decades ago. Hawke leaves Bermuda for London to begin his search for the mysterious killer. At the same time the Sword of Allah unites with the Taliban and al-Qaeda to form an evil alliance terrorizing the world.

The latest Hawke espionage thriller is an exhilarating tale that combines news headlines with the historical killing of Lord Mountbatten inside a super spy tale. Hawke's battle with suicidal depression feels real as he lost his love while killing her father so has welcomed a Russian death squad since he returned home to Bermuda. Now, only a special case called in by the Prince of Wales can get him back on the job and out of his crippling grief. Once in London, he reverts to Hawke super counter espionage agent. Warlord is a fabulous action-packed entry, but it is the fight within the hero's soul that makes it special.

    Hardly worth the read.

    Mr. Bell needs to take a course in creative writing. His dialogue is just awful. I kept reading this book and thought: this writer has a bad ear for how people actually talk with one another. His editor should have picked that up. I finished the book just to see if the writing improved: it didn't. This will be the last book I buy from this guy. And the ending was not much better. Its almost as if he grew bored with the story he was telling and decided to tell readers about his next book before he fell off to sleep. Very, very disappointed.

    Very Disappointed

    I'm a big Ted Bell and Alex Hawke fan and couldn't wait to get a copy of this book. Sadly my rush to read this book only led to disappointment. I found what I thought were several inconsistencies in this book that made it feel as if the same time and devotion wasn't given to it as was the previous books in the series. If I were to rank this book against the others in this great series it would come in a distant last.
