Publisher Comments:

In this relentlessly paced tale of international suspense, intrepid MI-6 intelligence officer Alex Hawke confronts an evil like no other. Terror looms as a madman works his dark magic in the heart of the Amazon and a nightmare erupts along the Mexican border, creating a deadly combination that threatens to bring America to its knees.

A border ain't nothing but a law drawn in the sand. So says a small-town Texas sheriff in Ted Bell's most gripping espionage thriller to date. Things along America's southern border are rapidly reaching the boiling point. American girls are being snatched from their homes, ranches are burning, and the number of deadly confrontations along the Mexican border grows daily. At night, armed Mexican troops cross the border at will in support of narcotics smugglers and illegal immigrants. By day, Americans take up arms and plan reprisals. An all-out border war is no longer inconceivable. It's happening!

On assignment for the British Secret Service, a man leads a mysterious expedition into the heart of darkness. Sailing up the furthest reaches of the Amazon River, he is captured by a brutal tribe of indigenous cannibals. Forced into slave labor, he witnesses the unimaginable. Golden domes and minarets rise beneath the rainforest canopy. Vast terror armies are being recruited and trained in the jungle. Their goal: a vicious jihad that will unite one continent...and destroy another. They possess weapons only dreamed of by the Western allies. Somehow he must escape his captors and live to tell the tale.

With tensions on its southern border threatening to ignite into war, America must look to the one man who might be able to confront the demons in the jungle...and destroy them. Alex Hawke, with the

aid of brilliant Scotland Yard Inspector Ambrose Congreve, and an unstoppable force of nature named Stokely Jones, begins a river journey fraught with peril. He must find a river with no name, and a villain like no other. He must confront all the terrors that man and nature can hurl at him. From black magic, poison-tipped arrows, and blowguns to an awesome arsenal of the most advanced military hardware, Hawke must overcome insurmountable odds on his quest for victory.

Here is an author who gets you in the palm of his hand and then clenches his fist. And here is a saga loaded to the gunwales with action, glamour, and spellbinding suspense. Alex Hawke once again takes readers right to that thin border between fear and overwhelming terror. It's merely a line drawn in the sand. Cross it at your peril.

Cross it if you dare.

The feature attraction in SPY is Sir Alex Hawke, British Lord, jet-setter and free-lance secret operative out to deal with the depraved bad guys and save the free world.

The story itself presents us with a little "todays headlines" coupled with " what would happen if this were going on". Bell gives us squeeky clean good guys and the evilist of evil terrorists and co-conspirators. His tale has minarets rising under the rainforest canopy, terrorist armies being trained in the jungle, and the most destructive WMD's on this or any planet. Couple that with a weak, easily infiltrated U.S./Mexican border and you have the perfect scenerio for international espionage, and vicious jihad.

This is not the type of book that usually interests me since I am not, nor have I ever been, a fan of Ian Fleming's James (stirred not shaken) Bond. Sir Alex, however, is another matter. Mr. Bells creation is a man so downright mysterious and rugged yet suave and exciting that he makes Bond look like Gomer Pyle.

Suspend your belief system for several hours and come along on a no-holds barred journey as presented by an exceptionally talented author. You will find yourself completely immersed in the Hawke character as well as his unimaginable adventure.
