Overview

Warriors (Alex Hawke Series #8) by Ted Bell

Dashing counterspy Alex Hawke must rescue a kidnapped American scientist as the United States and China move dangerously close to all-out nuclear war in this adrenaline-fueled thriller in the New York Times bestselling series that combines the hallmarks of Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy, Ian Fleming, and Daniel Silva.

When an elderly professor at Cambridge is murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture, Alex Hawke teams up with his Scotland Yard colleague and friend Inspector Ambrose Congreve to find the killer. But the death is only the opening move in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinksmanship.

In the United States the president has begun behaving strangely. Is his mental health deteriorating—or is there something far more sinister behind his questionable moves? The answer is crucial, for tensions are mounting between China, North Korea, and the U.S. And China has launched fighter jets and a mega submarine vastly more sophisticated than any seen before—military technology that leapfrogs anything the U.S. and Great Britain possess.

With the situation edging toward an unthinkable abyss, Hawke must pull off his most daring mission yet: infiltrate the China and neutralize the source of their advantage . . . or risk witnessing World War III.

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.

I've been a big fan of this author since the first Alex Hawke book.  That's why it's so difficult to write this review... The book stinks.   The author refers to Alex Hawke's body so often in gushing terms that I think I grabbed gay porn by mistake.   The story itself is so disjointed that it becomes a chore to follow along and believe me, it is not worth the effort. I used to look forward to his new books but right now I don't think that I would buy another. I'm that disappointed. It reminds me of when Clancy began to "mail it in".  Bell's certainly no Clancy but hopefully you get the point. Please don't waste your money.  You'll kick yourself if you do.

Ted Bell keeps Alex Hawke relevant, effective, and a wonderful hero in today's current fictional world.

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.

I have read all of Ted Bell's novels and he always finds a storyline to keep you turning pages. Reading the new adventures of his characters, Alex Hawke, Inspector Cosgrove, and Stokely Jones is like checking in with old friends. I always enjoy Ted Bell's books and look forward to reading the next book in the series. Great execiting read relating to present day global players. Hope and wish there are real warriors in our governments to "Save the Day".

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!
