Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A fast-paced, escapist, easy-read, great-to-get-lost-in tale. Itâs American but the hero is a Brit – a James Bond look-alike complete with girl and gadgets out to avenge his slaughtered family. With clear cut goodies and baddies, sex, feuds that stretch back a generation, treasure and political intrigue, itâs a fun read. The second in a series.

Similar this month: None but try G M Ford.
Comparison: Clive Cussler, Vince Flynn, Matthew Reilly.

If you like Ted Bell you might also like to read books by Joseph Finder, Stephen Leather and Greg Iles.

Synopsis

Hawke by Ted Bell

While sailing in the Caribbean, young Alex Hawke witnesses an act of unspeakable horror as modern-day pirates brutally murder his parents. It is a tragedy that will haunt him forever, and shape his destiny....

As a direct descendant of a legendary English privateer, Lord Alexander Hawke is skilled in the ways of sea combat -- and one of England's most decorated naval heroes. Now, Hawke returns to the Caribbean on a secret mission for the American government. A highly experimental stealth submarine is missing. She carries forty nuclear warheads, and is believed to be in the hands of an unstable government just ninety miles from the American mainland. In a race against time, Hawke must locate the sub before a strike can be launched against the U.S. -- and, after a lifetime of nightmares, finally avenge himself upon the men who slaughtered his family....
