Hawk

Hawk

“The characters were real, the technology great and the twists in the plot surprising.”

Thoroughly irreverent; believable, complicated story lines; a strong finish. Interest never wanes; a page turner you’ll want to read end-to-end. The villains are so credible, so rich in political motivation and personal agenda, that after having finished the book, you’ll find it hard to believe that Neary’s bad guys don’t actually exist. Likewise, the good guys; complex, intriguing, and volatile. A romantic relationship testing the faith of the protagonist – A ticking clock pushing the combatants toward an horrific conflagration, and the solution resting on the shoulders of Quentin Hawk, a rookie CIA agent compromised by his own non-conformist talents. A great read.
