War Hawk: A Tucker Wayne Novel
This is the second book in the new Tucker Wayne series from James Rollins. Former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his faithful companion, war dog Kane, are enlisted by an old friend to track down who is killing her former colleagues (all of whom worked on a top secret project). Little do they know, this investigation will draw them into a conspiracy that could rock the entire world. This is a spin-off series from the Sigma Force series, but while James Rollins’ trademark action-packed storytelling is present, it does have a very different feel to it. Tucker Wayne is more of a lone wolf hero and while he does eventually acquire some co-conspirators, the story is missing the team dynamic that is present in the Sigma Force titles. Still, the storyline was intriguing – with Kane really stealing the show – and will draw in any dog lover. Readers even get Kane’s point of view throughout the story which is a nice touch. Those who do not mind the lone wolf hero and are fans of James Rollins will more than likely also enjoy this book.
