Book Description

Aug. 15 2006 Hawke Series (Book 4)
“A border ain’t nothing but a law drawn in the sand.” So says a small-town Texas sheriff in Ted Bell’s most gripping espionage thriller to date. Things along America’s southern border are rapidly reaching the boiling point. American girls are being snatched from their homes, ranches are burning, and the number of deadly confrontations along the Mexican boarder grows daily. At night, armed Mexican troops cross the border at will in support of narcotics smugglers and illegal immigrants. By day, Americans take up arms and plan reprisals. An all-out border war is no longer inconceivable. It’s happening! On assignment for the British Secret Service, a man leads a mysterious expedition into the heart of darkness. Sailing up the furthest reaches of the Amazon River, he is captured by a brutal tribe of indigenous cannibals. Forced into slave labor, he witnesses the unimaginable. Golden domes and minarets rise beneath the rainforest canopy. Vast terror armies are being recruited and trained in the jungle. Their goal: a vicious jihad that will unite one continent…and destroy another. They possess weapons only dreamed of by the Western allies. Somehow he must escape his captors and live to tell his tale. With tensions on its southern border threatening to ignite into war, America must look to the one man who might be able to confront the demons in the jungle…and destroy them. Alex Hawke, with the aid of brilliant Scotland Yard Inspector Ambrose Congreve, and an unstoppable force of nature named Stokely Jones, begins a river journey fraught with peril. He must confront all the terrors that man and nature can hurl at him. From black magic, poison-tipped arrows, and blowguns to an awesome arsenal of the most advanced military hardware, Hawke must overcome insurmountable odds on his quest for victory. Here is an author who gets you in the palm of his hand and then clenches his fist. And here is a saga loaded to the gunwales with action, glamour, and spellbinding suspense. Alex Hawke once again takes listeners right to that thin border between fear and overwhelming terror. It’s merely a line drawn in the sand. Cross it at your peril. Cross it if you dare.

By Ian Gordon Malcomson HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With the writing of such thrillers as "Spy" Ted Bell, as an internationally-acclaimed espionage writer, has earned the right to be number among the elite in his field such as Clancy, La Carre, and Ludlum. This novel deals with a very plausible theory that has the forces of Al-Qaeda and a major Mexican crime syndicate pitted against a crack team of international counter-terrorist experts led by the inimitable Sir Alex Hawke, world globe-trotter, adventure seeker and crime-stopper. What is ultimately at stake here is the future security of the American homeland in a futuristic 9-11 world. The bad guys are threatening to move across the Mexican-US border, using the drug trade as their cover, in an attempt to subvert the American government. What makes this fast-paced story such a compelling read is that its prose is smooth, its plot well coordinated, the technical aspects well researched, and, most importantly, supplies a large dollop of timely suspense to keep the reader's attention. In an era of post 9-11, this book and any others that Bell has written are worth reading for those of us who still yearn for a more secure world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Roller Coaster Ride March 6 2010
By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Book 4 in the Alexander Hawke series

This thriller is a captivating tale of international suspense that brings its readers to different localities: from the primitive jungles of Brazil to a small town near the Mexican Border, to the Floridian coast and to the U.K.

Rapidly drawn into never ending action, the reader is taken on a roller coaster-ride as we follow a madman concocting technological warfare, a sheriff who faces a vicious group of thugs, and a puzzling and frightening encounter in the Florida Keys involving an insidious plot against the U.S.A and a wrap up in the U.K.

What brings everything together is Hawke, Lord Hawke leads a mysterious expedition deep into the heart of the Amazon River where he is eventually captured and forced into hard labour by an indigenous tribe that has been infiltrated by extremists. There he witnesses the birth of a terrorist militia, their recruiting and intense training with state of the art high tech weaponry. The ultimate recipe to launch jihad missions...designed to change the western world forever... He must escape and warn the world of this impending disaster and with help return to eliminate this terrible threat..

Parallel to this exciting saga Mr Bell's prolific imagination takes us to a small border town where one of the stronger characters is the town sheriff who due to a lack of resources finds himself in over his head facing motorcycle gangs and many other dangerous situations. Eventually the two stories cross paths when the sheriff meets Hawke...

The wild ride continues in the Florida Keys when a downed plane is discovered with nuclear war heads on board...Of course, putting all excitement aside, in the end, everything wraps up in a
satisfying manner.

This is another thriller that is full of impossibilities but highly entertaining, an adrenaline rush.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to an already amazing series... Sept. 23 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Spy is sensational. I've read every one of the Hawke books and found them to be
among the best thrillers being written today. You've got an author who has clearly found
his stride and the latest is a tour de force, written as if it was ripped out of the headlines,
with enough action and marvelous characters for four ordinary thrillers. Do yourself a favor.
Buy Spy and make sure you've got time to finish--you will not want to put it down.
It is that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars The heir to Robert Ludlum? Aug. 27 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read not a few reviewers who say this author is the rightful heir to Ludlum. But I think his talent
is too unique to be the heir to anyone. He does his homework. Lou Dobbs at CNN, who covers the border
situation more carefully than any other newsman called this book, "Outstanding". I think I'll take Mr. Dobb's
opinion over some self-proclaimed 'ski bum' any day. So should you. This book is fabulous. Period.
