In bestseller Bell’s rousing fifth thriller, Alex Hawke fights the leaders of a new and invigorated Russia, where Vladimir Putin has been locked up in a lethal prison built over a massive radioactive waste site. Evil mastermind Count Ivan Korsakov (aka the Dark Rider) is determined to return Mother Russia to her rightful place in the world order by reacquiring her former colonies, after which he intends to conquer Europe and reign as the new tsar.
The only thing standing in his way is Hawke, who, is more than up to the task of thwarting those who try to take over the globe. Life throws Hawke a curve when he finds himself falling in love with the astoundingly beautiful Anastasia, who just happens to be Korsakov’s daughter.
This was a great book, lots of action, intrigue, and dramatic twists.‚ I thoroughly enjoyed it. it’s length if daunting – 512 pages – but it reads so easily and quickly, you hardly realize that you’ve spent hours reading.
In my journey to read 200 pages per week, next week offers me the opportunity to read the new book by Ron Martoia called Transformational Architecture: Reshaping Our Lives as Narrative.
