Description

Intelligence officer Alex Hawke takes on power-hungry Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is wielding a terrifying new weapon, in the latest adrenaline-fueled thriller in Ted Bell's New York Times bestselling series.

In corrupt Russia, an erratic Vladimir Putin is determined to forge his country into a formidable superpower once again. He intends to redraw the map of Europe, and will go to impossible extremes to realize his fantasies--including shooting down a civilian airliner packed with tourists bound for China. Kremlin scientists have developed a radical new weapon that could forever alter modern warfare. NATO, locked in a tense standoff over Ukraine, Poland, and Estonia, knows Putin will not hesitate to use it. But there is one man who can bring the world back from the brink: Britain's foremost intelligence asset, Lord Alexander Hawke.

The intrepid MI6 officer's latest challenge begins in the Gulf of Aden and soon has him searching for the link to a series of bizarre assassinations. Spies are dying all over the world--from London, Washington, D.C., and Maine, to Moscow, and even the glittering Cote d'Azur. In the murky world of counterterrorism and high-stakes intrigue, the odds have never been higher. Once again, Alex Hawke must save the world . . . one bullet at a time.

Review quote

Ted Bell s PATRIOT is the ninth in his Alex Hawke series - and the only one I ve read - but it felt like a perfect entry point, and I enjoyed the high-octane ride enough that I ll seek out some of the earlier installments [It s] a polar vortex of storytelling. --New York Times Book Review"

Back cover copy

When counterspy Alex Hawke learns of a series of recent CIA deaths, he suspects they are more than coincidences. Hawke believes the deaths can be tied to Spider Payne, a rogue intelligence officer who was fired by the CIA and evolved into a serial killer--and it looks like Hawke is directly in his line of fire.

Spider isn't the only ex-intelligence operative with a grudge. Colonel Beau Beauregard founded a renowned mercenary fighting force, but now he's lost it all as the press blames him for amassing renegade killers rather than soldiers. Beau won't stop until everyone who betrayed him has been eliminated.

In Russia, Vladimir Putin is determined to forge his country into a formidable superpower. His Kremlin scientists are developing a radical new weapon that could forever alter modern warfare. Only one man can bring the world back from this apocalyptic brink: Alex Hawke. In the murky world of counterterrorism and high-stakes intrigue, the odds against him have never been higher.
