9780062347855: Warriors CD: An Alex Hawke Novel (Alex Hawke Novels)

On the streets of Washington, D.C., a brilliant scientist, the brains behind a revolutionary fighter aircraft prototype in development by the Pentagon, is snatched by masked thugs and disappears. Now five years later, an elderly professor at Cambridge University has been murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture. Alex Hawke teams up with Scotland Yard former Chief Inspector Ambrose Congreve to find the killer, but this death is merely the opening gambit in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinksmanship.

In the United States, the president's behavior makes many question his fitness for leadership. Is his mental health deteriorating—or is there something far more sinister at work? The answer is crucial, for hostilities are rapidly escalating between China, North Korea, and the United States, as China launches a vastly advanced fighter far more sophisticated than any seen before—military technology that might leapfrog everything the U.S. and Great Britain now possess.

With the situation edging closer and closer to the yawning abyss, Hawke faces a female Chinese mastermind and assassin named Chyna Moon. He must infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize their advantage . . . or risk the outbreak of World War III.

Performed by John Shea

From the Author:

WARRIORS is No. 9 in New York Times Bestselling author Ted Bell's series of  Alex Hawke Thrillers. Early reviews say it all: "Far and away the best Hawke yet!"  A resurgent, militaristic China has built a secret fleet, a wolf pack of the most stunningly powerful weapons delivery systems since the invention of undersea naval warfare. How did China leapfrog our technology so brilliantly...and so quickly?  Hawke faces  his most difficult challenge ever as he and his soldiers of fortune embark for China and North Korea on a do or die mission with zero margin for failure. They are on a desperate search for a man who disappeared without a trace from the streets of Georgetown four years earlier. A man, Hawke believes, who  holds the key to the balance of military power in the Pacific...and the world. His mission takes him from the incredibly lavish retreats of the Chinese Communist Party elites and deep inside the  insane world of North Korean death camps, far more horrific than even the barbaric Nazi camps  of World War II. One man has the world on his shoulders once more. And this time, the weight may be too much for even Lord Alexander Hawke to bear. ON SALE APRIL 1ST, 2014.

From the Back Cover:

British counterspy Lord Alexander Hawke must rescue a kidnapped American scientist and catch a villainous megalomaniac—a man obsessed with horrifying experiments in state-of-the-art warfare—in Ted Bell's latest mesmerizing, high-action thriller in his New York Times bestselling series, reminiscent of the very best of Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy, and Daniel Silva

On the streets of Washington, D.C., a brilliant scientist in the high-tech military industry, the brains behind a revolutionary fighter aircraft prototype in development by the Pentagon, is snatched by masked thugs—along with his wife and children—and disappears without a trace.

Now, five years later, an elderly professor at Cambridge University has been murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture methods. Alex Hawke teams up with former chief inspector Ambrose Congreve, his Scotland Yard colleague and friend, to find the killer, but this death is merely the opening gambit in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinkmanship.

In the United States, the president's behavior makes many question his fitness for leadership. Is his mental health deteriorating—or is there something far more sinister at work? The answer is crucial, for hostilities are rapidly escalating among China, North Korea, and the United States. At a somber state funeral in Arlington Cemetery, an unmanned drone twice the size of a twin-engine Cessna dives out of the sky and wreaks chaos on a shocked crowd of military and civilian dignitaries. In the East China Sea, a North Korean patrol crew murders four sailors aboard a U.S. Navy vessel. Then China launches vastly advanced fighter jets and a megasubmarine far more sophisticated than any seen before—military technology that might leapfrog everything the U.S. and Great Britain now possess.

With the situation edging closer and closer to the yawning abyss, Hawke faces a female Chinese mastermind and assassin named Chyna Moon. He must pull off his most daring mission yet: infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize their advantage . . . or risk the outbreak of World War III.
