Spencer Hawke's latest novel, The Eyes of Athena, is now available. Based on a “plays by his own rules” Mossad agent, who is pulled into a web of lies and intrigue involving Iran, Russia and a secret society sworn to protect the United States for more than 200 years, the tale features Ari Cohen, forced to thwart an attack that stretches across continents, governments and time.
Hawke writes the kind of spy novels not seen since James Bond’s glory days – introducing a new kind of hero to this age-old thriller, available on Amazon, Ibooks, Smashwords, and Nook and distributed by Ingram and in audiobook form at Audible.com.
When Hawke was asked, how he feels about strong female characters in his spy novels, his response was, "I'm excited to bring Jade McQueen to life in the new book The Eyes of Athena and can't wait to see how readers react!"
Hawke was born in England and educated in the United Kingdom and set off as a young boy seeking adventure abroad. At the age of 21, he and a friend headed for Africa and crossed the continent North to South through the Sahara, sometimes on foot when their old Land Rover did not want to travel as far as they did.
Eight months later, having dodged many conflicts and machine-gun-toting patrols, they rolled into South Africa. Hawke is currently putting the final touches to the third novel in the Ari Cohen series – The Forgotten – as the second novel, The Swiss Conspiracy, goes through final edits, and hopes to have it bout to his readers soon.
