This is a great thriller with a tight plot and believable characters (both the bad and the good guys). I love Ted Bell's Alex Hawke series and eagerly await each new book. This book starts with Hawke trying to drink himself to death in Bermuda after he has lost his fiance and unborn son. The book takes us all over the world. First to England, then Northern Ireland, Miami, Florida, and high in the mountains and caves in Pakistan. That is part of the fun of these books-we travel all over the world. Also, we have the wonderful Hawke, a modern-day swashbuckler with unlimited skills in the spying and killing game. Then there is Harry Brock-the foul-mouthed CIA agent who totally lacks fear and who can shoot anything under any circumstances. Then the wonderful Stokely Jones, the big-as-a-tank black ex- Navy seal who is Hawke's right hand man and just the type of man you want with you in the tight situations. And there are lots of bad guys throughout, some more visible than others, but this is the world of spying after all. And in this book we have real-life royals as well - Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and his sons. Really, really good fun and I couldn't put it down.
