Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Lord Alexander Hawke is a larger-than-life figure who carries out secret missions for the Americans and British with the buccaneer style of his ancestor, the legendary pirate Blackhawke. He suffers from a childhood trauma--having witnessed his parents' murder during a Caribbean trip--which haunts him as he tries to deal with a threat from a new Cuban government. Hawke's offbeat character enhances the typical race-against-time thriller, even if John Shea's portrayal of the character is exaggerated. Shea handles the action and drama well, giving nuances to the characters' motivations and thoughts. The result is a fun adventure that introduces a character listeners will want to follow. J.A.S.
