Hawker descends on the nation’s capital after a string of gruesome bombings

It’s just past six a.m., and the Rutledge family is gathering for breakfast, unaware of the two bombs that have been planted outside their home. They’re about to start eating when a fireball bursts through the windows, and the house is blasted to dust, leaving only one survivor. In the last six weeks, the Rutledges are the seventh family to be attacked—and the onslaught is just beginning. A terrorist group is intent on bringing the citizens of Washington, DC, to their knees. But James Hawker will teach the victims to stand up and fight.
 
A radical student group is behind the bombings, which are just their first step in an all-out campaign of terror. After years waging a nationwide war against organized crime, Hawker fears no terrorist. On the battlegrounds of Washington, the world’s most dangerous vigilante will fight to the finish.
 
Terror in D.C. is the 8th 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.
 
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It—publishing just as the second part of It, the movie, lands in theaters.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
