In Ted Bell's latest pulse-pounding and action-packed tour de force, Alex Hawke must face a global nightmare of epic proportions.

As this political crisis plays out, Russia gains a new leader. Not just a president, but a new tsar, a signal to the world that the old, imperial Russia is back and plans to have her day. And in America, a mysterious killer, known only as Happy the Baker, brutally murders an innocent family and literally flattens the small Midwestern town they once called home. Just a taste, according to the new tsar, of what will happen if America does not back down.

Onto this stage must step Alex Hawke, espionage agent extraordinaire and the only man, both Americans and the Brits agree, who can stop the absolute madness born and bred inside the modern police state of Vladimir Putin's New Russia. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 2/16/2014

    " In this book Alexander Hawke is nursing his wounds in Bermuda when he is called upon to help counter the new threat facing the UK and US from Russia. Non-stop action across the globe as Hawke and his companions try to stop the Russians. In my opinion by far the worst of the Hawke novels a lot of plot holes and really unrealistic scenarios. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 2/5/2014

    " Strangely, I am still not tired of this cast of characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brett | 1/30/2014

    " Terrible, hack writing that you can't put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/30/2014

    " Another enjoyable Alex Hawke adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray Perigard | 1/24/2014

    " While I enjoyed reading it, Tsar lacked the level of "punch" and excitement of earlier Hawke novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 1/19/2014

    " I love the adventure and characters (even though practically stereotypical) but to see how author plays out a fairly trite story line is always fun. Certainly a "veg out" read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy | 1/18/2014

    " A good thriller but might be a bit long at 500 pages for some. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 1/17/2014

    " almost as good as the previous books. still wort reading "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevbo49 | 1/15/2014

    " Good enough for what it is. Not even as plausible as a Tom Clancy novel, but a page-turner nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 1/4/2014

    " read the last book first so this helped fill in the gaps! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M. | 12/24/2013

    " First I've read by Ted Bell. Very entertaining if a little far-fetched. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 12/15/2013

    " Quite formulaic and James Bondish. It had great potential and I was expecting a lot more. Cannot compare to his first NYT bestseller because this is my first Bell reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Duncan | 11/15/2013

    " This was a terrible book. Some vaguely clever ideas, but the characters were either flat and lifeless or so caricatured you couldn't take them even vaguely seriously. Not recommended.... (And I should have realised this was likely when I noticed Glenn Beck's endorsement....) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 11/9/2013

    " Good so far. Hard to keep up with all the Russian names, but no big deal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad | 11/6/2013

    " Bell can paint a scary picture of what one, or a handfull of people, can do. Alex Hawke saves the day(again) but another page-turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 11/3/2013

    " Overall a pretty good story. It took a little bit to get going but once it did the action was well paced. I liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee | 8/11/2013

    " A little too Romance Novelish . . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 5/12/2013

    " British Super-Agent Alex Hawke goes after the Russians in a new cold war. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 4/7/2013

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Alex Hawke; a new Russian Tsar is looking to make the Soviet Union a superpower once again and Hawke must stop him; unfortunately, he's fallen in love with the tsar's daughter "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 3/27/2013

    " Slow moving, predictable "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave Trollman | 12/27/2012

    " This is the most recent book and ends in an unexpected way "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 6/7/2012

    " My first Alex Hawke and I love it! This is a great one to read slow and savor. Can't wait to get to more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/10/2012

    " A little jumpy, but pretty good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 10/28/2011

    " High adventure! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 8/9/2011

    " Quite badly written - a straight psuedo-Bond fantasy that fails to ignite despite the decent premise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave Wooldridge | 7/5/2011

    " Reading Ted Bell's Alex Hawke series is like watching a James Bond movie or a Michael Bay action blockbuster. While it may not be as sophisticated or realistic as Tom Clancy's novels, Ted Bell is a great writer and concocts page-turning adventures that are pure popcorn fun. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brett | 5/17/2011

    " Terrible, hack writing that you can't put down. "

    " Good, but the build-up was better than the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John | 4/29/2011

    " Complete trash. Do not bother. I read the first quarter of this book thinking it was a Bond type story. Boy was I wrong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mr. | 3/9/2011

    " Great story but much like all the others in this line of his books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/22/2011
