A captivating read that should now be mentioned in the same breath as genre masters – Daniel Silva, Brad Thor and Tom Clancy. -IndieReader September 22nd, 2014
Hawke’s writing excels, especially during the book’s many action sequences. The dialogue in the novel is both crisp and tense but also humorous at times making for a page turning sleepless night.
Hawke spins his international counter-terrorism tale at a breakneck pace starting with the 1999 shoot down of a U.S. super-secret stealth military jet in Bosnia and a terrorist plot to use the plane’s technology for nefarious purposes.
From there, and over the course of the 10 years after the crash, the action shifts to various international terrorist strongholds, with each playing supporting roles trying to stop the terrorists.
The Arrows of Islam is just what a mystery/espionage novel should be – quick, action-packed and full of intrigue.
