A modern day suspense novel about a US-France-China showdown with help being provided by a couple of very resourceful Brits. Very likable characters and a story line that keeps you involved through 14 CDS. A highlight is the narrator who brings each character to life through using different voices/accents. Very enjoyable to listen to.

This was the first book from Ted Bell that I read/listened to. I found the plot pretty plausible and intriguing scenarios. Echos from the past - namely alliances & nationalism that helped kick off WW I - have the current day world caught off guard. Seemingly uncharacteristic behaviors of so-called allies have spies and diplomats scratching their heads . Hong Kong, Oman, Africa, France, USA, & UK are sites visited throughout this story line. Though the unabridged audio book is 14 discs long, my attention was held throughout. I enjoyed this selection very much, and believe I will try others by Mr. Ted Bell. **One incorrect fact that has stuck with me (the audio version at least has it), is that it states that the Tienanmen Square protests happened in 1986 -- not 1989.**

What an exciting book! I couldn't put it down. Alexander Hawke is asked by the U.S. to rescue a deep cover CIA agent, Harry Brock. Harry has found out a secret agreement involving MidEast oil exists between China and the French foreign minister. Brock needs to get this information to his superiors, but is grabbed, drugged and tortured by the Chinese before he can tell anyone. Hawke goes to Cannes, to find Harry Brock who is an unwilling victim of a sadistic, Chinese assassin on a ship docked in the harbor. Hawke must rescue Harry, but this is only the beginning. There is a far deadlier plot in the making. Will this be the next World War?

This book had a really good story and interesting characters. The reader, John Shea, did an outstanding job. There are only a few readers I enjoy listening to that can bring a story to life instead of dulling it down and Shea is one. I will listen to more of Ted Bell's adventures. The character Hawke puts me in mind of 007. If you like those stories you will like this series.
