    Tepid, yet I read on

    Ted Bell brings back Lord Alexander Hawke in another great adventure to give the reader a taste of adventure while awaiting the upcoming full-length novel. When former high-ranking officials within the CIA die under suspicious circumstances, current Director Brick Kelly turns to Hawke for some insight and assistance. Hawke determines the deaths were well-planned vendetta murders and posits that a rogue agent left to fend for himself after a soured operation might be to blame. Aptly named Spider, this man works in the shadows and has a sordid history with Hawke. Tasked with coaxing him out of hiding and letting a proverbial web be spun around him, Hawke lures him out and leaves nothing on the table in this battle to the death. Good for a reader looking to bridge the gap between novels, but by no means a stellar read or as powerful as some of Bell's novels with the same cast of characters. My tepid relationship with Bell's work appears to come from his less than stellar shorter stories. Hawke and his band of merry men have a decent ability to weave a decent story, though some of the writing is less than captivating. Hokey dialogue and jilted narration can sometimes make reading the series more of a headache than is worth the reader's time, even when the subject at hand is highly intriguing. That said, I have a guilty pleasure like for the stories, the characters, and even the less than mature dialogue. Still, I would not rank it as some of my favourite material. Decent work, Mr. Bell, though I would have hoped you could bridge your novellas into the larger story lines of your full novels. That said, having yet to read Warriors, I cannot be sure you haven't done so.
