    3.5 Stars There is good and there s bad in War Hawk, the second entry in Rollins Tucker Wayne series The good is, of course,Tucker and Kane The bad is for me that there s too much Sigma Force type action I had hoped this series would concentrateon Tucker and Kane In the first book and the prequel short, they readlike Jack Reacher with a war dog companion travelling around the world getting in the middle of trouble This story, however, quickly headed into full on ou 3.5 Stars There is good and there s bad in War Hawk, the second entry in Rollins Tucker Wayne series The good is, of course,Tucker and Kane The bad is for me that there s too much Sigma Force type action I had hoped this series would concentrateon Tucker and Kane In the first book and the prequel short, they readlike Jack Reacher with a war dog companion travelling around the world getting in the middle of trouble This story, however, quickly headed into full on out there Sigma Force I had hoped for a littlefrom the new series.There was a heck of a lot going on here Basically, it had to do with a rich and powerful man wanting to getrich and powerful by setting war drones off on enemies and countries he wanted to destabilize for takeover Tucker and Kane came into play after an old girlfriend asked him to look into the mysterious deaths of the people who had been working with her on programming the drones The story does make you think, however, about how powerful drones really are or can be what they can be programmed to do Here, the drones could not only spy, they could retrieve information, attack, and learn new strategy while they are in the air to avoid detection and destruction In short, a form of Artificial Intelligence Ridiculously outlandish, or something that could really be done I don t know, but it certainly gave me pause while reading at all the possibilities.The story went over my head fairly quickly with all the techno babble I m just a lowly high school math teacher I learned to go with the flow, though, as a lot of it didn t really matter It was just who they were, and what they were doing to try to stop the drones That was enough to know There were Kane scenes in this book, but not nearly as many as in previous stories By the end, he and Tucker both were afterthoughts in the story As Tucker himself thought out loud at one point they were just glorified bodyguards for the geeks doing the real work of getting into the drones programming to try to stop them He was there for the action scenes.This is certainly an exciting story, and if you are looking for Sigma Force type action, it s in there If you are looking for a story truly about the adventures of Tucker and Kane as I was , not so much If I wanted to read Sigma Force, I d pick one of those books up, you know I was looking for something new and different about the former Army Ranger and his faithful war dog companion and didn t really get that Although an enjoyable read, it was justof the same Sigma Force

    An exciting first half is diminished by its lackluster second half through the conclusion 4 of 10 stars

    A man and his dog try to stop a dastardly plot.The basic idea plotline were reasonable, but the writing was a bit clunky and there were too many what moments in this book for me.Overall rating 2.5
