What Comes Around: An Alex Hawke Novella by Ted Bell

When CIA agents start dying off from "natural causes", their friends begin to doubt it's coincidental...

William Morrow Impulse and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this ebook for review.  It will be published February 11th.  It's a novella and reads quickly.  It would be a dandy way to take your mind off a pending doctor or dentist visit.

Alex Hawke is a counterspy.  He maintains a low profile, takes care of jobs he gets, and is loyal to his friends.  When his friends start dying he takes it personally.  After all, they've all been to hell and back on assignments; you bond under those circumstances.  His friend, Andrew, agrees it's too many to be natural and he starts looking for connections.

Mr. Bell never writes a boring book.  His stories are always action packed, full of tension and very dynamic.  You might not know where you are going, but you know it will be a wild ride.  This story was no exception.

Once they centered in on who the murderer had to be, Alex uses himself as bait.  This was not a good move...

Like I said, this one won't take you long to read.  You'll also meet Alex, who is going to be main character in a new series.  I like him.  He's scrappy, brave and ready to fight.  Get ready for more excitement from Mr. Bell.
