Hitting the beach on the 4th? Might your exchange go a little something like this:
He: Okay, Honey, let’s roll! Got directions to the beach?
He: Beer? Sodas? Chips?
She: Check, check, check.
He: Roller skates?
He: Kidding! Umbrella? Beach chairs?
He: Last thing. My new Alex Hawke paperback?
She: Double check.
He: What d’you mean, double check?
She: I got two copies…
She: You really think I want to loll around in the sand all day, watching YOU read it? I got my own copy!
He: Oh. Oh, yeah. Good idea.
The takeaway from that skit here is this… don’t be “that” person left to roll around in the sand without your own copy of Ted Bell’s latest action-packed, must-read Hawke novel, Patriot, which is in stores TODAY!

Intelligence officer Alex Hawke takes on power-hungry Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is wielding a terrifying new weapon, in the latest adrenaline-fueled thriller in Ted Bell’s New York Times bestselling series.
In corrupt Russia, an erratic Vladimir Putin is determined to forge his country into a formidable superpower once again. He intends to redraw the map of Europe, and will go to impossible extremes to realize his fantasies—including shooting down a civilian airliner packed with tourists bound for China. Kremlin scientists have developed a radical new weapon that could forever alter modern warfare. NATO, locked in a tense standoff over Ukraine, Poland, and Estonia, knows Putin will not hesitate to use it. But there is one man who can bring the world back from the brink: Britain’s foremost intelligence asset, Lord Alexander Hawke.
The intrepid MI6 officer’s latest challenge begins in the Gulf of Aden and soon has him searching for the link to a series of bizarre assassinations. Spies are dying all over the world—from London, Washington, D.C., and Maine, to Moscow, and even the glittering Cote d’Azur. In the murky world of counterterrorism and high-stakes intrigue, the odds have never been higher. Once again, Alex Hawke must save the world . . . one bullet at a time.
