". . .This novel is alot of fun, an Ian Flemingesque romp of a spy thriller . . . A polar vortex of storytelling."                                                       - New York Times Book Review

“Action-packed… Overkill is a spy thriller that operates on a tightrope high above the Swiss Alps. Alex Hawke’s work and personal life crash together in an excruciating fashion… and the stakes could not be higher.” 


"Ted's Best Yet!" 


"You can't put this down..." 

               - Rush Limbaugh

"For those who miss the excitement of Ian Fleming's suave special agent James Bond, they will find plenty of action in the dashing aristocrat and fighting man Alex Hawke."

                     -Iron Mountain

                             Daily News


"OVERKILL is what used to be called a 'ripping yarn,'   one that you won’t be able to read fast enough."                                 - Joe Hartlaub

                  of BookReporter
