I have read all the Alex Hawke books and each has gotten more ludicrous . The plots and dialog are ridiculous. This is the last Alex Hawke book I will read.

God save the Queen. It has a good plot but would have been better if written in American English. Reminded me of a 1930's Sherlock Holmes movie put to writing. Never again!

This is a book that would have made a great short story, unfortunately Ted Bell chose to tell this story as a novel and did a very poor job of it.

I've read the previous Hawke novels and found them to be quite good whereas this one seemed to be written by and for a adolescent boys. There were chapters in this book which were totally irrelevant to the storyline and served no purpose whatsoever.

I can only presume that Bell had a contract to produce a book and contracted out to someone else.

I liked all of his earlier "Hawke" novels, but this one fell far short of the earlier. Way too verbose. I had to plow thru about 60% of this book before the action got started. And then , of course, Hawke pulled his usual "James Bond".
