While I am a fan of Lord Alexander Hawke, I cannot say the same for the writing style of Ted Bell.  This is by far the worst written book in the series (I've read them all), and stands a good chance to win a razzie award, should they ever give one out for writing.  I purchased the digital "Nook" copy, but I would not be shocked to find the print version was written in purple crayon.

I have always found the Bell's previous Hawke works to be somewhat amateurish, but this one reeks more of ineptitude.  Fans of the hit tv series, The Office may be pleased, as I am almost certain that Bell wrote the screenplay for Michael Scott's thriller, Threat Level Midnight.  Perhaps if nothing else, it will leave you with a feeling of nostalgia instead of remorse for having supported this abomination of literature.  Finally, the dialog is forced, contrived, and in my opinion a tad bit offensive.  Bell insists that his characters embody every stereotype of their nationality and creed to an absolute fault, which gives this book a very juvenile feel to it.  I have honestly witnessed more convincing dialog watching a grade school production of A Christmas Carol.  Imagine a seven year old "Ebenezer Scrooge" trying not to giggle at the sight of his classmate, a snickering Bob Cratchit, expressing his love for Tiny Tim and you will have a much clearer understanding of human intricacies and emotional depth than you will from the characters in this book.

That being said, I did buy the book...and I'll probably buy the next one.  Alex Hawke is as cool as the other side of the pillow, and I'd like to see what he does next.  I just hope Bell put forth more effort in his writing that Hawke has to in order to get laid.  For Hawke it is easy...for Bell it may take a bit of work.

    what happened?!?!

    As a longtime fan of Ted Bell's writing and his creation Alexander Hawke, I was unbelievably disappointed with this particular book. The writing was disjointed and plot points that were set up disregarded. The plot and characters didn't even jell till halfway through. A very frustrating experience.

    If nothing else to read it's OK.

    A pale shadow of the original.

    Not impressed

    My least favorite Hawke book. Far fetched and too predictable. Looks like Bell has run out of ideas
