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 spinoff adventure from New York Times bestselling 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 U.S. 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?

War Hawk: A Tucker Wayne Novel

Tucker Wayne and Kane were introduced to Sigma Force fans in 2013 in Rollins best seller BLOODLINE.  The Tucker Wayne series was born with the release of KILL SWITCH in 2014. We have been anxiously awaiting the return of Kane in the 2016 release of WAR HAWK.

WAR HAWK delivers again.  Classic Rollins story lined based in historical fact, current world trends, thorough research to force the reader to believe, this could really happen. WAR HAWK unveils how exploiting governments engulfed is social and politic chaos, are manipulated by the greed and ego of those in powerful business positions, by directing private armies to fulfill their lust for wealth.

This is a story a story of artificial intelligence versus human intelligence and the future of warfare.  The story stays true to its Sigma Force roots with non stop action, plot twist, and the unique perspective of allowing us to understand Kane’s perspective.  Despite holding off on enlisting Sigma’s help, Tucker Wayne and Kane are ready to become part of this team.  The relationship of between Kane and his handler Wayne brings a unique skill set to fighting off terrorist, bad guys, and those who wish to do harm to others.  Those familiar with Rollins work will find themselves quickly immersed within the story, rooting for and intrigued by the characters, and hoping that if they ever make a movie, it better live up to the one the plays out in our heads.  5 stars
