From the jungles of Belize to the streets of Atlanta, Hawker’s war rages on The CIA wants James Hawker dead. For years, his one-man campaign against organized crime has struck fear into America’s most corrupt politicians, and now they’re striking back. Hawker escaped the United States by the skin of his teeth, and has spent the last months living the life of a glamorous expatriate in Latin America: fast cars, lovely women, and all the champagne his Swiss bank account can buy him. For some men, it would be paradise. For Hawker, a life without action is a living hell. Then anticommunist crusader Colonel Curtis invites Hawker to Belize, where he’s been assisting the rebel movement in the fight against tyranny. His enemies have powerful friends back in the United States, who would kill Curtis to protect the regime. For the sake of liberty, Hawker must stop running—and resume his battle for America’s soul. Atlanta Extreme is the 9th book in the Hawker series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

In these Hawker adventures, the New York Times–bestselling author of the Doc Ford and Hannah Smith novels once again “raises the bar of the action thriller” (The Miami Herald). Chicago cop James Hawker had a choice: Follow orders to stand down or take out a murderous terrorist. Hawker pulled the trigger—but not before the terrorist killed two children. Now exiled from his career, Hawker won’t stop fighting for justice. Detroit Combat: Hawker’s one-man crusade against organized crime has taken him to Detroit and the rotten-to-the-core center of the pornography industry, where a vicious gang is kidnapping women and turning them into sex slaves. Now, it’s up to America’s toughest vigilante to rescue them. Terror in D.C.: In the last six weeks, there have been seven bombings in the nation’s capital as terrorists attempt to bring the citizens of Washington, DC, to their knees. A radical student group is behind the attacks, but Hawker is about to teach them a lesson they’ll remember till their dying day—which may come a lot sooner than they think. Atlanta Extreme: The CIA wants Hawker dead, but an anticommunist crusader wants his help. Col. Wellington Curtis—originally from Atlanta, Georgia—has been financing and arming rebels in Central America. It seems the two men have at least one thing in common: They’re both targets. Now, in Belize, it’s up to Hawker to sort out the good guys from the bad, before somebody succeeds in putting the vigilante out of business permanently.

What we can learn from Atlanta's struggle to reinvent itself in the 21st Century Atlanta is on the verge of tremendous rebirth-or inexorable decline. A kind of Petri dish for cities struggling to reinvent themselves, Atlanta has the highest income inequality in the country, gridlocked highways, suburban sprawl, and a history of racial injustice. Yet it is also an energetic, brash young city that prides itself on pragmatic solutions. Today, the most promising catalyst for the city's rebirth is the BeltLine, which the New York Times described as "a staggeringly ambitious engine of urban revitalization." A long-term project that is cutting through forty-five neighborhoods ranging from affluent to impoverished, the BeltLine will complete a twenty-two-mile loop encircling downtown, transforming a massive ring of mostly defunct railways into a series of stunning parks connected by trails and streetcars. Acclaimed author Mark Pendergrast presents a deeply researched, multi-faceted, up-to-the-minute history of the biggest city in America's Southeast, using the BeltLine saga to explore issues of race, education, public health, transportation, business, philanthropy, urban planning, religion, politics, and community. An inspiring narrative of ordinary Americans taking charge of their local communities, City of the Verge provides a model for how cities across the country can reinvent themselves.

Doc Ford returns to his stilt house on Dinkin's Bay to find an old friend and one-time lover waiting for him. Her real-estate developer husband has disappeared and been pronounced dead, and she's sure there's worse to follow-and she's right. Following the trail, Ford ends up deep in the Everglades, at the gates of a community presided over by a man named Bhagwan Shiva (formerly Jerry Singh). Shiva is big business, but that business has been a little shaky lately, and so he's come up with a scheme to enhance both his cash and his power. Of course, there's the possibility that some people could get hurt and the Everglades itself damaged, but Shiva smells a killing. And if that should turn out to be literally, as well as figuratively, true...well, that's just too damned bad. Replete with passion and rich, pungent prose and some of the best suspense characters anywhere in fiction, Everglades is the finest work yet from an extraordinary talent.
