Counterspy Alex Hawke must catch a villainous megalomaniac—a man obsessed with horrifying experiments in cyber warfare—in this mesmerizing new espionage thriller in Ted Bell’s New York Times bestselling Alexander Hawke series.

A bizarre event nearly becomes a monumental catastrophe when something goes awry with the rides at an American theme park, wreaking havoc on visitors looking for nothing more than a sun-splashed holiday. Meanwhile, in another part of the country, a USAF F-15 pilot, escorting another jet in the skies over the Midwest, inexplicably loses control of his plane, endangering the lives of several people and deeply puzzling those following his mission on the ground. Then, in the misty calm of a coastal California evening, the world’s premier artificial intelligence scientist gets a strange phone call. When he hangs up, he quietly grabs his coat and leaves for an after-dinner stroll from which he never returns.

It’s up to Hawke and the brilliant former inspector Ambrose Congreve to find out what could possibly be happening. But how does one identify—and fight—an enemy one can’t see? Even these seasoned operatives are mystified. Is there really such a thing as an ultra-intelligent machine, a cyber-weapon that can shift the geopolitical balance of power? In a hunt that takes him from Palo Alto, California, to the Russian frontier, to Cambridge University, and the glistening Mediterranean aboard his newly christened and armed super-yacht Blackhawke, Alex Hawke is joined by the unstoppable Stokely Jones and his ex-CIA buddy Harry Brock as he moves closer to unmasking the scientist behind these extraordinary events.

    " I love that Hawke is back and if possible even more of a badass than ever. Stokely Jones gets married and the descriptions of the sea battle is pretty awesome. It does start out a little convoluted because it jumps around from place to place. Well worth the read once you get back to Hawke and the speed of the novel picks up. "

    " I thought this was another good book from author Ted Bell. I just enjoy the hell out of this character, Hawke. A modern day James Bond, but with an awesome haircut. "

    " This book should be read by pretty much everyone. although, in my book, I have 612 pages.... Oh well! More for me! :) "

    " I really had a hard time finishing this one. His earlier Hawke books were so much better. "
