Overview

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 Silva

On 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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

First, a brilliant American scientist and his family are snatched on the streets of Washington. Then five years later, a Cambridge University professor is found brutally murdered and a grave prospect emerges: China and North Korea will stop at nothing to control the world. To thwart this looming threat, Lord Alex Hawke must travel deep into the enemy's strongholds on a mission of rescue—and national survival. Now in mass-market paperback and NOOK Book.

Publishers Weekly
02/10/2014
China seeks to rule the world in bestseller Bell’s entertaining eighth novel featuring MI6 super-agent Alex Hawke (after 2012’s Phantom). For five years, a Chinese military unit under the command of Gen. Sun-Yat Moon, “someone capable of unspeakable cruelty,” has held Dr. William Lincoln Chase, “the legendary American scientist and Nobel laureate,” on Xinbu Island in the South China Sea. Chase is the genius behind the Centurion Submariner Project, which has produced an unmanned submersible vessel capable of launching 40 long-range nuclear missiles. To ensure Chase’s cooperation, his wife and children are held hostage in a North Korean death camp. Hawke and his team set out to rescue Chase and family, and deal with the Chinese threat. Silly prose aside (e.g., “He had it in for people who starved, tortured and murdered children”), this is a thrilling ride that even includes a cameo appearance by the current Queen of England. Agent: Peter Lampack, Peter Lampack Agency. (Apr.)
NPR
“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.”
James Patterson
“Alex Hawke is the new James Bond. Ted Bell is the new Clive Cussler.”
Vince Flynn
“A secret agent who takes you into the danger zone with a ballsy wit that had me hooked.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Bell knows how to build a plot that moves at breakneck speed.”
Madison County Herald
“Ted Bell puts a capital A in adventure.”
Publishers Weekly
“China seeks to rule the world in bestseller Bell’s entertaining eighth novel featuring MI6 super-agent Alex Hawke . . . this is a thrilling ride.”
Booklist
“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.”
 Madison County Herald
“Ted Bell puts a capital A in adventure.”
Rush Limbaugh
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.”
James Patterson
“Alex Hawke is the new James Bond. Ted Bell is the new Clive Cussler.”
Kirkus Reviews
2014-03-20
Bell's Warriors is the eighth Alex Hawke thriller, and it's fun in its own fast-moving, quirky way. Lord Alexander Hawke is a stunningly handsome and rich Brit whose hobby seems to be saving the world. He's admired by the queen and presidents alike. So when U.S. President Tom McCloskey drops dead from a poisoned birthday cake, his funeral is attacked by drones, and a new Chinese regime rattles its sabers, who're you gonna call? In fact, it's a while before Hawke is fully woven into the plot, which bounces from the U.S. to Britain to China to North Korea and the oceans in between. His personal life figures into the story, including his sexual escapades, his love for his young son and the perils of giving the nanny the weekend off. Then the American scientist William Lincoln Chase is kidnapped by the North Koreans, since he's the only person in the world with the know-how to create a weapon that will change the global balance of power. The "Norks" know exactly how to force Chase to create that weapon, and they will waste no time bringing civilization (i.e. the U.S. and Britain) to its knees. Clearly, this is a job for Lord Hawke and his handpicked band of warriors. They are jaunty types who, as they land on a darkened beach for a risky exfiltration, manage time for humor. When a team member wonders if the mission will turn into a Chinese version of Little Big Horn, Hawke replies, "I ain't no Custer, Stokely Jones." Meanwhile, in England, the "world-famous criminalist" Ambrose Congreve defends Hawke's son against beastly black birds with a James Bond–ian brolly worthy of MI6's Q. 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.

    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.

    Phenomenal Read!

    Ted Bell is just a master of writing political thrillers. I stumbled upon the Hawke series a few months ago and have devoured all eight books and I can't wait for number nine. Great stories, wonderful characters, just the right amount of technical jargon and Hawkes' sex life to keep it spicy. The language is wonderful with the perfect British phrasing and Stokeley Jones' New York slang. Bell pulls off the almost impossible task of giving us a character in Hawke that has it all, can do it all and is still humble and likable. I enjoy spending time with all of these characters. Some readers quibble with some small points like Bell's rather loose treatment of Hawkes age and historical timeline. Who cares? It's fiction folks and bloody good fiction at that!

    Highly recommended.

    Lord Alexander Hawke is a character that keeps the reader involved. Hard to put the book down once the reader gets into the book. Another in the long line of MI6 British agents that build on James Bond. Ted Bell is a great author. I have read all of his books.
