about this item
TSARAlex 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 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 borne and bred inside the modern police state of Vladimir Putin’s “New Russia.”
WARLORDAlex Hawke has all but given up on life. The British-American MI6 counterterrorism operative lost the woman he loved almost a year ago and has sought refuge at the bottom of a rum bottle ever since. But late one night at his home on Bermuda, he receives a wake-up call. His Royal Highness Prince Charles desperately needs his help. The prince has discovered a threat directed toward the British royal family. A shadowy figure from the past has the British crown in his sights, and has proven once before that his warnings are not to be taken lightly. This is just the call to duty Hawke needs to get back into action—if the madman doesn’t strike first.
PHANTOMSomething goes awry at an American theme park, wreaking havoc on visitors looking for nothing more than a sun-splashed holiday. In a different part of the country, a USAF F-15 pilot in the skies over the Midwest inexplicably loses control of his plane, endangering the lives of several people and puzzling those following his mission on the ground. Then, in California, the world’s premier scientist on the subject of artificial intelligence gets a phone call. When he hangs up, he quietly grabs his coat and leaves for a stroll from which he never returns. It’s up to Hawke to find out what could possibly be happening. Is there really such a thing as an ultra-intelligent machine, a cyberweapon that can shift the geopolitical balance of power? Alex Hawke moves closer to unmasking the scientist behind these extraordinary events, going nose-to-nose with an enemy unlike any he’s fought before—and may never again.
