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. Download and start listening now!
