Warriors --- by --- Ted Bell. Over the top escapism: nuclear missile-tipped mega submarines aimed at the western world; fruitcake North Korean dictators and assorted whackos; American supermen and a British superSir who take out an entire Norke research island and spy-training institution almost single handedly. Wow! Who can possibly pass up a New York Times Bestseller like this? But do bestsellers have to be good. I’m not so sure. This novel is slow in parts and amazingly action packed in others. It has overtones of Mr. Bond. And then there’s the image of Doctor No riding the ICBM that comes to mind. The perfect not-too-strenuous on-the-beach reading. I think. Judge for yourself.

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".
