This book is an insult to all of us who have followed this series. It could not possibly have been written by Ted Bell. It is absolutely horrible!
I'm sorry but this was really not very good. Nothing like the other Hawke tales. Terrible characters with ridiculous names and really dumb references to current issues with fake news, and just hard to even finish reading.
Not as good as before. It is like reading someone’s else work rather than from Ted Bell. The plot is too eractic and not as detailed as previous novel. Try to be a love story with rehashed characters. Very difficult to finish. I hope the next Hawke’s adventure will be much more succinct and true to characterization.
I’ve read all of the Hawke novels and couldn’t finish this one. Had a different feel than previous ones. Pretty vulgar. Don’t recommend.
This was an extremely disappointing read. It’s was jumpy & disjointed. It’s almost as if a ghost writer was involved. Had it been this first Hawke book I’d ever read, I’d never pick up another. I hope any future books written are in keeping with his previous books.
Way to much romantic and pastoral narrative. Seems like Danielle Steele meets Ted Bell. The thriller plot is also just way to weak. Seems like a book to meet publisher quota and one of the better efforts.
Not up to his usual standards. I had to push to read to the end.
