Publisher Description

"Hawke is a fast-paced adventure...truly an exciting read," says Nelson DeMille. "Rich, spellbinding, and absorbing, Hawke is packed with surprises," raves Clive Cussler. Readers beware, this stunning, high-caliber thriller is not recommended for the faint of heart.
Lord Alexander Hawke is a direct descendant of the legendary English pirate Blackhawke and highly skilled in the cutthroat's deadly ways himself. While still a boy, on a voyage to the Caribbean, Alex Hawke witnesses an act of unspeakable horror. Hidden in a secret compartment on his father's yacht, Alex sees his parents brutally murdered by three modern-day pirates. It is an event that will haunt him for the remainder of his life. Now, fully grown and one of England's most decorated naval heroes, Hawke is back in the same Caribbean waters on a secret mission for the American government. A highly experimental stealth submarine, built by the Soviets just before the end of the Cold War, is missing. She carries forty nuclear warheads and is believed to be in the hands of a very unstable government just ninety miles from the American mainland. Hawke is in a race against time. His mission: Find the deadly sub before a preemptive strike can be launched against the U.S., and confront the murderous men behind the personal nightmare that haunts him before they find him first.
Featuring breathtaking action, international intrigue, and a hero worthy of the very finest adventure fiction, Hawke heralds the exciting debut of a bold new talent.

I have read only two novels featuring Alex Hawke so far, but I intend to read more. The combination of suave sophistication and brutal violence puts one in mind of Ian Fleming's best Bond
tales. In Hawke's rare circle of friends both elegant butler Pelham and streetwise SEAL Stokely are as valued as the U.S. Secretary of State, or, for that matter, the Prince of Wales.

Best book

I love all of hawks books. They include so much of the ocean and pirate life along with the modern terror issues today. Riveting and grabbing. Can't stop reading!

The hero of Hawke ,


Ted Bell has once again managed to draw the reader in with a wonderfully entwined plot, colorful yet tangible characters in locations and circumstances that are reminiscent of an Errol Flynn drama. It's a story that has it all; swashbuckling sea-bound English billionaire saves the day (and damsel in distress) with a wonderful gang of international mercenaries that are vividly embellished. Well done Ted, yet another Hawke Hero action-packed, screenplay waiting for the right cast, director and producer to enthrall audiences all around the world!
