Description

Five years ago a brilliant American scientist, well known in high-tech military circles, suddenly disappeared without a trace off the streets of Washington, DC.

Now a professor at Cambridge University is murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture methods. Counterspy Alex Hawke teams with former Scotland Yard chief inspector Ambrose Congreve to find the killer, but they soon discover that this death is merely the opening gambit in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinkmanship.

In the United States, the president is behaving erratically and some begin to question his fitness for leadership as hostile exchanges and new technologies ramp up tensions between China, North Korea, and the United States-threatening western military superiority.

With the situation edging closer and closer to the abyss, Hawke must face down a superb Chinese assassin and pull off his most daring mission yet: infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize their advantage . . . or risk the outbreak of World War III.

Review quote

"Hawke is . . . strong, shrewd and savvy, with an aplomb not seen since James Bond. In other words, Bond, eat your heart out . . . there's a new spy in town." -- NPR "Alex Hawke is the new James Bond. Ted Bell is the new Clive Cussler." -- James Patterson "A secret agent who takes you into the danger zone with a ballsy wit that had me hooked." -- Vince Flynn, bestselling author of The Last Man "Ted Bell puts a capital A in adventure." -- Madison County Herald "Bell knows how to build a plot that moves at breakneck speed." -- Richmond Times-Dispatch "China seeks to rule the world in bestseller Bell's entertaining eighth novel featuring MI6 super-agent Alex Hawke . . . this is a thrilling ride." -- Publishers Weekly "The sheer scope of this high-concept thriller, and the well-placed shocks throughout, make it Bell's best effort to date. A perfect tale for fans of plot-driven action-adventure and, especially, for the Cussler crowd." -- Booklist "Near the end, a villain exclaims, `Then bring me the head of Alexander Hawke!' Really, there's no need. When we finish enjoying Warriors, just bring us Hawke's next lively adventure." -- Kirkus Reviews "Warriors, [is] impossible to put down. . . . It's really expansive, great reading. If you like spy, espionage, mystery-thriller stuff, you cannot get a better book." -- Rush Limbaugh
