Alex Hawke is tracking one of the world's most powerful villains high in the Swiss Alps
A powerful Swiss banker is found dead, frozen at the base of a soaring Alp. When a second man, the head of a rival banking empire, is found dead deep inside a mountain cave, MI6 suspects a bizarre conspiracy. Vast sums may have been plundered from the Queen of England's accounts. The British royal family's centuries-old Swiss bank holdings are at risk, shaking the foundations of Her Majesty's government and the monarchy itself.
Sir David Trulove, Chief of British Intelligence (MI6), tasks his most formidable weapon, Alex Hawke, with investigating the horrific murders. In Switzerland, Hawke and Ambrose Congreve of Scotland Yard are pulled into a tangled web of international intrigue, deceit, and murder. China and Russia are the prime suspects, and these powerful forces will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.
A mysterious figure known as "the Sorcerer" has long been rumored to reside within an impenetrable fortress inside a mountain complex in the Swiss Alps known as "White Death." Hawke must scale perilous heights and breach the fortifications at the top of the world…and find the Sorcerer—or die trying.
Includes a sneak preview from Patriot, the exhilarating new Alex Hawke adventure.

Book unbecoming of Ted Bell
Sure it was only $3. I should have heeded that warning in my brain "Careful! Why so cheap?". But then it is Ted Bell and I have thoroughly enjoyed his previous books so what could go wrong?
This book is totally disappointing. It s med to have been hurriedly written. The plot was not well developed. A lot of the prose was devoted to Hawke's fear of the mountain, the climbing, which, then later on disappeared like a puff of smoke. One jever understood the intricacies of the plot.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!
