His task is simple: enter another nation’s airspace undetected, meet a secret contact, and find a way to avert a global war. It will take every skill at his command—but there are few as shrewd and savvy as Alex Hawke. When his plane is discovered by enemy radar, he is forced to improvise—or die trying.
Alex Hawke. Saving the world one bullet at a time.
Includes a 98-page sneak preview from Phantom, the exhilarating, new novel in the Alex Hawke series.

My life entered a brand new and exciting chapter in 2011-2012 when I was elected a Visiting Scholar at Cambridge University, UK. I held this position at the University’s Department of Politics and International Studies, a primary resource for the Intelligence Community. I was also Writer In Residence at Sydney Sussex College here at Cambridge. I am working on a new novel, the 9th in the Alex Hawke series of spy thrillers, to be called PATRIOT. The new thriller will revolve around MI6 intelligence officer Alex Hawke’s efforts to contain a newly combative Vladimir Putin. I also plan to write a 3rd installment in my series of historical novels for young people, the Nick McIver Time Adventures published by St. Martins. My Alexander Hawke novels are published by Harper/Collins.
This past year I was honored to be the first author to speak at the Reagan Library kicking off “The Year of the Spy”.
