Warlord: Alex Hawke, Book 6 (Unabridged)
Alex Hawke has all but given up on life. The British-American MI6 counterterrorism operative lost the woman he loved almost a year ago and has sought refuge at the bottom of a rum bottle ever since. But late one night at his home on Bermuda, he receives a wake-up call... literally.
His Royal Highness Prince Charles, an old friend, desperately needs his help. The prince has discovered a not-so-subtle threat directed toward the British royal family. What’s more, the evidence reveals an ominous connection to Charles’s godfather, Lord Mountbatten - the beloved family patriarch assassinated by an ingeniously designed bomb 30 years before. A shadowy figure from the past has the British crown in his sights, and has proven once before that his warnings are not to be taken lightly. Several clues point to IRA involvement, but the authorities have little to go on and answers are scarce. This is just the call to duty Hawke needs to get back into action - if the madman doesn’t strike first.
Love Ted Bell's books and the narration is excellent! Great way to kill some time and let your imagination take hold
Not as good as two novels he wrote for teens
I bought this because I really enjoyed listening to The TIme Pirate and Nick of Time with my children. This novel was quite disappointing. I had hoped that I had found a new author of spy novels to enjoy. While there is some history to be learned in this book, there is a whole lot of gratuitous foul language as well as unnecessary sex scenes.
Have read all the Alex Hawke series and can't ay enough about Ted Bell. Great Author. All the Alex Hawke books keep you wanting more at the edge of your seat. Highly recommend all of them. I have listened to many books and must also say this is the first series that i have run into that used the same narrator, John Shea whose voice is sensational. Not to mention that by having the same narrator throughout a series keeps the characters accents et al the same throughout. Hats off to Ted Bell for such a thrilling series, John Shea for a fantastic job narrating and doing such a wonderful job with both Alexe and Stokley
