The only book I’ve read that can keep the epic pace and pulse of modern day action movies like James Bond and the Bourne trilogy, Patriot is will send you across the globe in search of foreign motives and terror plots as a dangerous killer picks off members of the elite class of spies, one by one. Ted Bell has gifted action lovers with a riveting and creative plot that will have you flipping pages right up until the very end. From cover to cover, this is one hell of a story. Filled with larger than life characters and a plot so crazy, you might just think it could be real, Patriot is worth every penny. Lorde Alex Hawke, British spy and one of the wealthier bachelors in the world embarks on a dual mission – to avenge the deaths of his close friends and allies, and to save the world from Putin and his diabolical scheme to bring Russia back to its full might. As one might expect, when the US, Britain and Russia are involved on the world stage, anything can happen. When America is acquiescing to seemingly every terrorist and Russia is staving off starvation as it reaches for greatness, one man, and his network of friends work tirelessly behind the veil of secrecy to keep the world from exploding.
Ted Bell’s Patriot is one hell of a book. From the first page, I couldn’t put it down and finished it in just a few days (The book is actually 529 pages, so its not the fastest read – but it will ensnare your attention). Pulse pounding doesn’t begin to describe the feeling you get as you read about Putin and his display of an explosive so volatile and undetectable, that it has foreign heads of state scrambling to find a peaceable resolution. Lorde Alex Hawke must travel to meet his one time friend, Vladimir Putin, and figure out if he is really willing to start the next world war in order to regain lost territory. Alex is given a frightening display of Putin’s power and resolve…and now he must figure out a way to stop him, before it is too late. Not your average spy novel, Patriot holds its own among the greats and will hold your attention from cover to cover. As the weather turns colder, heat things up a bit with the explosions, shoot outs and action that Bell has created in his latest book, Patriot.
