Overview

An esteemed former CIA director dies off the coast of Maine.

Another senior CIA officer is found dead of a "heart attack" in a posh Paris hotel. Counterspy Alex Hawke and his friend Ambrose Congreve think this could be more than coincidence. Hawke discovers that the victims are connected through one man: Spider Payne, a rogue intelligence officer whose dangerous exploits got him barred from the CIA. Now Spider believes he's been wronged and is out for vengeance—and Alex Hawke is his number-one target.

Hawke's only hope is to lure his deadly enemy into a trap he can't escape—and it's a place Hawke knows better than anyone: his seaside home in Bermuda.

Includes a sneak preview of Warriors, the exhilarating new novel in the Alex Hawke series.

    Edge of your seat one minute, laughing out loud the next. Such is the world of Alex Hawke. Read all the novels
    but this is the first novella. This way of mixing action, suspense, and humor is appreciated even more in a short novel
    like this. Hawke is the next big thing, the new Bond, and this is a great introduction to his amazing world. A rogue CIA
    agent is on the loose and only Lord Alexander Hawke can find and stop him. Good stuff!

    When Cam Hooker, retired CIA, goes out for his Sunday boat ride, he never thought he'd come to face his past. When Alex Hawke, MI6 operative, went on vacation in Bermuda, he never thought he'd be called to attend a friend's funeral and secretly investigate a series of possible murders. So much for relaxation.

    Crisp and concise narrative accompanied by action guide the reader through this action and humor laced plot. Characters, while few, are strong enough to carry the story from start to finish.

    Without giving too much away, I will just say this:

    Overall, an enjoyable read.
