Reavis Wortham's Hawke's Target (Pinnacle 2019), third of three in the Sunny Hawke Thriller, is the simple albeit complex and fast-moving tale of a lawless family who sells drugs, porn, and whatever else makes money without any thought for the victim. By all accounts, they have never faced a circumstance where that amoral approach to life didn't work. They are ruled by the unforgiving iron fist of the patriarch, Daddy Frank, both a father and a grandfather but ruthless and unforgiving to his own ...more

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley to read and review.
HAWKE’S TARGET by Reavis Wortham is the third book in the “Sonny Hawke” series, and finds Texas Ranger “Sonny” Hawke once again in the heat of a gun battle unexpectedly, although he and his fellow officers manage to come out on top in the end.

Sonny’s target is an apparent vigilante traveling with a truck and travel trailer who is leaving a trail of bodies of despicable criminals who’ve beaten the court system,

Yet again Wortham delivers a masterpiece, oh the situations our Texas Ranger Sonny Hawke finds himself in. He should have stayed behind the desk. When I read the first book in this series I was not sure if I was going to like it but it only gets better with every book. I am glad that I found this author since other like James Lee Burke who has the same style is getting on in years. Now there is a new writer to follow and hopefully he will continue for many years. I strongly recommend that y'all ...more

Hawke's Target by Reavis Z. Wortham is a book I received in a giveaway from Kensington Publisher, and I am under no obligation to leave a review. This is my own personal opinion of the book. I have never read any books by this author before but suspense thrillers are one of my favorite genres. This book was very well written and action packed, as the saying goes if you didnt have bad luck you wouldnt have any luck at all I felt that way reading about Texas Ranger Sonny Hawke, and it seems like ...more

With the state of Texas as the background, Hawke's Target brings back one of our favorite Texas Rangers to stop a vigilante serial killer. As the killer moves around Texas killing criminals who the law was forced to release, Hawke stays true to the Ranger code and does his best to stop the killing. Of course, it can't be easy or we wouldn't need the Ranger.
Reavis Wortham keeps our hero moving through a fast paced western that will remind you of many of your favorite characters. Ranger Hawke is

This is the first time I have read this author and I have found this book to be a very good read. Hawke is a Texas Ranger who after the story gets going is given the assignment of tracking a person who is killing men who have gotten off of a crime because of a technicality or is on parole. Alonzo hunts and tracks these men down while giving you a rundown of his life while he is going through each person. He is also feeling a sense of justice in how the man who killed his wife had gotten away ...more

What a terrific book. Filled with action that just doesn’t stop. The story takes place all across Texas with a lowlife family that’s in the drug business. Texas Ranger, Sonny Hawke is called in to help track down what’s going on in these small towns where former felons are being knocked off by a vigilante. The author really gives you the feel of what it’s like to be in the woods and swamps with these people and captures the Texas dialog beautifully. It doesn’t hurt that the author is actually ...more

No time to breathe

The latest saga of Sonny Hawke, Texas Ranger, will keep you turning pages all night with its nonstop action and flying bullets. A stand alone book, it is helpful to have read the first two books just to know the flow of events. I have enjoyed all three Sonny Hawke books and look forward to this time next year when the next one releases.

Thsank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. Quite the fun read. The bad guys are pretty obvious but just how many will die before Hawke comes out on top. It took a bit of reading to begin keeping the bad guy names straight. Wortham also could use a little tightening of his conversational paragraphs and descriptions. All-in-all a good action packed book.

Very well written story, with great dialogue and characters. Unfortunately, the plot is based on the very improbable notion that an organization can be run on fear alone. I also don't like the changing POV when some of it is in first person, and especially here when it leads to repetition of scenes.

Reavis Wortham never disappoints! I enjoyed this third book in the Sonny Hawke series. It was quite a bit different from the first two which made it exciting to read. These action-packed stories will get your blood pumping and entertain you until the very end!

I gave this book a 3-star rating because at times it felt like the titular Ranger, Sonny Hawke, was a minor character in the plot line. In fact, the Sonny Hawke we've come to know and root for never really "shows up" to take care of business until very near the end. Yes, there's a lot of family drama along the way from some white trash neer-do-wells from deep East Texas, but Sonny spends most of the book on the road, following various leads to try and put together what the piney woods rednecks ...more

The grandson was ridiculed, chastised, and embarrassed as a youngster by his grandfather, the patriarch of an evil, criminal family in the backwoods of East Texas. The grandson grows up and goes to work in the family business, but this scion is definitely bent. When a beloved relative is murdered by a felon released from custody due to a technicality, he takes it upon himself to play vigilante on many who have enjoyed similar pardons. Enter Sonny Hawke, Texas Ranger, who can’t let the man take ...more
