Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Hawke is . . . strong, shrewd and savvy, with an aplomb not seen since James Bond. In other words, Bond, eat your heart out . . . there’s a new spy in town.” (NPR)

“Alex Hawke is the new James Bond. Ted Bell is the new Clive Cussler.” (James Patterson)

“A secret agent who takes you into the danger zone with a ballsy wit that had me hooked.” (Vince Flynn, bestselling author of The Last Man)

“Ted Bell puts a capital A in adventure.” (Madison County Herald)

“Bell knows how to build a plot that moves at breakneck speed.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

“China seeks to rule the world in bestseller Bell’s entertaining eighth novel featuring MI6 super-agent Alex Hawke . . . this is a thrilling ride.” (Publishers Weekly)

“The sheer scope of this high-concept thriller, and the well-placed shocks throughout, make it Bell’s best effort to date. A perfect tale for fans of plot-driven action-adventure and, especially, for the Cussler crowd.” (Booklist)

“Near the end, a villain exclaims, ‘Then bring me the head of Alexander Hawke!’ Really, there’s no need. When we finish enjoying Warriors, just bring us Hawke’s next lively adventure.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Warriors, [is] impossible to put down. . . . It’s really expansive, great reading. If you like spy, espionage, mystery-thriller stuff, you cannot get a better book.” (Rush Limbaugh)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

Verbose, disjointed & condescending drivel that was painful to struggle through.

I've read the whole series & though the Anglophile stuff (sorry) is a bit much sometimes there was always a good cohesive story at the core. I was excited to take this on a long business trip
& prepared to be well distracted during long flights. Instead I struggled through as I had nothing else with me!

I don't remember the other books being this condescending. A reminder of the characters & their back story is needed & appreciated but only from book to book not chapter to chapter, we're not that dim!

It's also very disjointed - it reads like several people wrote different chapters without much collaboration or editing to bring it together.

I enjoy these books as a harmless diversion. The stories aren't first class but they are fun. But oh my gosh it is like 10 different people wrote this book alternating chapters and had the plot in common but no editing. Phrases, character descriptions, background information is repeated over and over as if someone was afraid a reader might pick up the book mid-chapter and need some catching up, or go into a coma between chapters and need to start over. Hawke lives at Hawkesmoor, Congreve's best friend is Hawke, Hawke oozes charm, etc., etc., etc.,. Got it, check, got it, etc., etc., etc. 30 minutes with a decent editor would tighten this thing up nicely, but as it stands it is distracting how poorly this book was edited. Still enjoyed it though....shame on me.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Worst Kindle book I have ever purchased - and I've bought hundreds 23 mai 2014

Fourteen bucks for this pile of poorly executed excrement? I'd call it a comic book, but that's an insult to comic books. Characters drawn with crayons, a plot that had to have been thought up by a committee of half-wits, and probably written by the committee's half-slumbering children, all combine to create something that belongs on the digital equivalent of the Remaindered shelf. Continuity errors abound and incorrect, but easily ascertained, facts about everything from automobiles to aircraft keep the reader's teeth grinding. Does the author (or author's helpers) pay people to write favorable reviews? If so, they were not paid enough, especially if they actually had to read this excuse for a novel.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Embarrassingly bad - Spoilers 16 avril 2014

I am a big fan of thrillers (Vince Flynn, we miss you!) and was looking forward to trying a new author. However, when our hero hits a tree because his car "pulls to the right" I knew I was in trouble.

When he has to bail out of his plane, winds up in the middle of the freezing ocean for hours, escapes sharks, conveniently gets picked up from said ocean, beaten by the enemy but escapes by waltzing out of his cell (with a concussion and snapped tendon or two in his leg!), smacks the heads of his captors together and they conveniently die (OMG REALLY? one smack?), then he dresses in a Chinese uniform, walks back up 8 flights of stairs (don't forget the tendon, ribs, and concussion), pretends to be a pilot, and steals one of their planes, all in one day! the ratio of enjoyment to eye-rolling was too low.

The writing is incredibly bad:
"The initial interrogation about the Chinese aircraft carrier was short but brutal. Hawke gave up nothing, and he had gotten out of it with little more than a severely wounded left knee, a few broken ribs, a black eye, three broken fingers, and a concussion. The leg was the worst. Two gorillas had tried to break it by pulling it backward. The attempt failed, but they'd managed to snap a tendon or two. He could walk, but not far." Well, I'd say the Chinese were pretty lame if that's all they did!

"When they got bored with him, they told him he'd never leave the ship alive, then locked him up inside a stinking crew cabin in the bowels of the bilge with room for little more than a crappy bunk bed." Ooh those MEANIES!

"He now lay on the top berth thinking very seriously about how the hell to escape before those bastards came for him again. Tortured and killed him.

"Two military policemen with automatic weapons had delivered him to this charming boudoir. He was fairly certain the same two would come for him when it was time for the more labor-intensive interrogation. They were merely thugs, those two, viciously abusive, but stupid. Just the way he liked them. He'd feigned a far worse concussion than he'd actually suffered, forcing them to half-carry him down many flights of steel stairs, something they'd bitched about all the way down." (Ok, let's stop our torture and carry the guy down to the bilge room...then complain about it??!!)

"You had to be able to make this stuff up as you went along." (I kid you not. That is a quote.)

I don't often leave bad reviews, as I have a great deal of respect for authors but this is so bad I had to warn you. Granted I did NOT finish (I got to chapter 15), and granted I know that there needs to be "suspension of disbelief" but when I got to the scene with the president eating birthday cake, well, that was it for me. No more Ted Bell and Alex Hawke.

I've been reading the Alex Hawke series since Pirate and have enjoyed them, since they generally had decent (if essentially unbelievable) plots, mainly because the various characters were interesting. However, it looks like the author had a difficult time coming up with anything for this one that made any sense. The various story lines were confused and hard to follow. Frankly, Hawke might as well become some sort of demi-god, since he appears essentially invincible and unaging, despite being shot, tortured and beat up so many times in the series. At least Fleming had Bond showing some scars and depression after the things he went through.

I think Bell needs to retire Hawke. He phoned this one in.
