Alex Hawke has all but given up on life. The British-American MI6 counterterrorism operative lost the woman he loved almost a year ago and has sought refuge at the bottom of a rum bottle ever since. But late one night at his home on Bermuda, he receives a wake-up call . . . literally. His Royal Highness Prince Charles, an old friend, desperately needs his help. The prince has discovered a not-so-subtle threat directed toward the British royal family. What's more, the evidence reveals an ominous connection to Charles's godfather, Lord Mountbatten -- the beloved family patriarch assassinated by an ingeniously designed bomb thirty years before. A shadowy figure from the past has the British crown in his sights, and has proven once before that his warnings are not to be taken lightly. Several clues point to IRA involvement, but the authorities have little to go on and answers are scarce. This is just the call to duty Hawke needs to get back into action -- if the madman doesn't strike first.

There were too many things going on early in this story--and flash backs thrown in for good measure. Really hard to keep things straight!! However, I figured out it would all come together and was not disappointed in the last half of the story!! As with previous reviewers, agree that the characters Hawke and Stokes are great characters and even better together!! 6 out of 10 for me.

I agree with Nitetrain, Hawke and Stokes are very good characters. Yes, there is a lot of action and a very fun read. 8 of 10 for me.

Wow! There is so much action in this novel that at times it gets daunting just to try to keep up. In fact, there may me one or too many plots that cause muddling, especially the beginning. The second half of the novel makes up for this big time. Hawke and Stokes are GREAT characters. 9 of 10 stars
