Former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne is contacted by a former
army colleague that needs his help. She and her son are on
the run from ruthless assassins who will stop at nothing
to kill her. Tucker discovers several of her
colleagues have died and the traces are leading back
to a very powerful man who has no problem starting wars
to get what he wants. Now Tucker and his war dog Kane
must find out the truth and stop the man from succeeding
with his diabolic plan.
I first read about Tucker Wayne in the short story
TRACKER and I instantly liked both Tucker and Kane. WAR
HAWK is the second book in the Tucker Wayne
series, but I yet to read THE KILL SWITCH, which is the
first book in the series. However, it didn't bother me
much when I started this book. James Rollins starts off
the book in such a way that you quickly get a grip on the
characters without feeling lost and I was hooked right
from the start with an interesting scene from WW2 that
has special meaning to the storyline.
I enjoyed reading WAR HAWK very much. I have loved James
Rollins Sigma series for years and it's really
great to read this spin-off series. I love the connection
to the Sigma books, but I also enjoy this is a
series that without any problem can stand on its two legs
(or four) without support from the characters in the
Sigma books. Tucker such a great character and I love his
partnership with Kane. I think Tucker and Kane's
relationship is what really makes the book special. And,
reading about their way of working together and their
"communications" is amazing. The story in WAR HAWK can
be a bit technological, and sometimes discussions can go
over my head. But, I don't mind as long as it doesn't
get boring, and WAR HAWK never gets boring.
I think WAR HAWK will appeal to people that love to read
adventure books. The book is well written, intriguing and
thrilling. I'm glad I have THE KILL SWITCH because I'm
really looking forward to reading it as well.
