Publisher's Summary

Former army ranger Tucker Wayne and his war dog, Kane, are thrust into a global conspiracy that threatens to shake the foundations of American democracy in this second exciting Sigma Force spin-off adventure from New York Times best-selling authors James Rollins and Grant Blackwood.

Tucker Wayne's past and his present collide when a former army colleague comes to him for help. She's on the run from brutal assassins hunting her and her son. To keep them safe, Tucker must discover who killed a brilliant young idealist - a crime that leads back to the most powerful figures in the US government.

From the haunted ruins of a plantation in the Deep South to the beachheads of a savage civil war in Trinidad, Tucker and Kane must discover the truth behind a mystery that leads back to World War II, to a true event that is even now changing the world...and will redefine what it means to be human.

With no one to trust, they will be forced to break the law, expose national secrets, and risk everything to stop a madman determined to control the future of modern warfare for his own diabolical ends. But can Tucker and Kane withstand a force so indomitable that it threatens our very future?

    Story
    "Not Again ! ! !"

    I first was introduced to James Rollins through the Sanguine Series. I can't get enough of the Sigma Force Novels. I have read the stand alone books. Now Rollins has me hooked on Tucker Wayne and his dog Kane.

    Continuing from our previous encounters with Tucker and Kane, The story in War Hawk brings to life the science of today with the unthinkable lack of moral awareness that could easily afflict all of us. James Rollins continues to bring forth provocative and thought provoking scenarios for everyone to consider. This latest novel reminds of a required read from college entitled "Inventing Reality: The Politics of News Media" by Michael Parenti. Rollins has found a way to present a modern version of the concepts presented by Parenti.

    I truly love the manner in which James incorporates real locales into his stories. I have spent many years driving through the United States and find that his descriptions take me back to places I have visited. Additionally, his writing has encouraged me to visit places I have not been.

    Scott Aiello once again shines. His performance is amazing. The story coupled with Aiello's performance makes this book almost impossible to pause. I truly hope that Aiello is rewarded with being able to continue to be the voice of the characters in the Tucker Wayne series.

    Can't get enough.

    "My dog could take some lessons!"
    Have you listened to any of Scott Aiello’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The only other performance I have heard Scott Aiello do was the first book in this series. His performance was outstanding in both.


    Any additional comments?


    This was another super book in the Tucker Wayne & Kane series (2nd book). I've been looking forward to this coming out.
    This is not your typical espionage thriller in that it includes a very intelligent Belgium shepherd (long hair) but the part I get a kick out of is when Kane is sent on a mission, the story is told from his point of view. What he sees, feels, smells and thoughts. Very focused and what you would believe a dog would be thinking. The devotion between Tucker and Kane is almost tangible.
    This book involves espionage, terrorism, loyalty, betrayal and the measures one friend will take to protect a living or avenge a murdered friend.
    I really enjoyed the first book, THE KILL SWITCH, which came out 2 years ago. I sincerely hope it will not be another two years before he writes book 3. This is a very good series with unlimited possibilities.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    I have yet to read a James Rollins book I don't like. They are exciting & fast paced & I especially like the Tucker & Kane books. I just wish he wrote faster.

    The story was well executed with lots of actions. The narrator is good and I don't mind having him again.

    "Utterly wonderful espionage thriller!"

    Earlier 5 star reviews have said all there is to say about this marvelous espionage thriller. I anxiously await the release of the third novel in the series. Just get and listen to this audiobook.

    Meanwhile I have added both James Rollins and Grant Blackwood to my "automatically pre-order all releases" list. Oh, I want a Belgian Malinois puppy.

    Story
    "Not for the PETA crowd"

    Tucker #1 doggie helper, and Cain the top crime fighting globe trotting dog, this is t travel agents dream, because like the Johnny Cash song They Been Everywhere Man.
    Lots of new novel ideas within this story, the heroes get injured frequently , so realize these characters are not bullet proof, even though they do seem to recover quicker than most of us. The plot is about world domination through artificial intelligence and drones.
    A lot of new ideas, but sometimes I found myself wondering if the author thought I wasn't smart enough to catch on to somethings so he reiterated some points 3 or 4 times.
    I enjoyed the story line of this book

    Great story! Sometimes I had to replay the parts when the narrator's voice lowered.

    "Tucker Wayne & Kane Save The World - Again"
    If you could sum up War Hawk in three words, what would they be?

    Fast-PacedRealisticFrightening


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, there was a sense of danger and urgency that comes through.


    What about Scott Aiello’s performance did you like?

    His voice works perfectly for this book series. His inflections make one feel that there is a whole cast performing rather than one person.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes actually, Anger. Because everything in this book is well within the realms of possibility and is currently being worked on. This will not end well for the common person on the street.


    Any additional comments?

    Tucker Wayne is a relatable main character and Kane is a unique and welcome presence. If you enjoyed the previous Tucker Wayne novel, Kill Switch, or any of the SIGMA Force series by James Rollins, then you should enjoy this as well. (I actually enjoyed it a bit more than Kill Switch personally). Recommended.
