Overview

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.

China seeks to rule the world in bestseller Bell’s entertaining eighth novel featuring MI6 super-agent Alex Hawke (after 2012’s Phantom). For five years, a Chinese military unit under the command of Gen. Sun-Yat Moon, “someone capable of unspeakable cruelty,” has held Dr. William Lincoln Chase, “the legendary American scientist and Nobel laureate,” on Xinbu Island in the South China Sea. Chase is the genius behind the Centurion Submariner Project, which has produced an unmanned submersible vessel capable of launching 40 long-range nuclear missiles. To ensure Chase’s cooperation, his wife and children are held hostage in a North Korean death camp. Hawke and his team set out to rescue Chase and family, and deal with the Chinese threat. Silly prose aside (e.g., “He had it in for people who starved, tortured and murdered children”), this is a thrilling ride that even includes a cameo appearance by the current Queen of England. Agent: Peter Lampack, Peter Lampack Agency. (Apr.)
