Second book in the series about secret agent Lord Alexander Hawke

A group of Islamic terrorists are systematically assassinating American ambassadors and their families worldwide while working on a plot to launch a devastating attack against the United States on American soil.

Secretary of State Consuelo de Los Reyes asks Alex Hawke the only man able to foil this conspiracy to join Jack Patterson in the investigation. Assisted by Stokely Jones a Navy Seal, they embark on an action packed mission stretching from London to Indonesia and from Washington to the Florida Keys, their objective: to find the men responsible and avert a cataclysmic attack that would cripple the nation.

"Assassin" is exciting, action-packed with an outrageous espionage story. The characters are fascinating, the good guys are larger than life heroes and colourful, Hawke is smart, resourceful attractive- everything needed for an action figure. As for the villains, they are very eccentric and set on ruling and destroying the world at any cost, you hate them right from the start. This adventure is similar to watching a James Bond movie: it is set in exotic locales, with hairpin plots and twists, bleeding edge technology, fancy cars, haute couture, gourmet eating, hot men and women. Mr Bell has captivated me with his seamless writing and his intriguing story line, I was completely engrossed from page one.
