The Hawk, aka Colonel Mackenzie Hawkins, or in this outing Big Chief Thunderhead, is back! In this excellent comedy thriller which would also make a rib-tickling movie, the Hawk (after having infiltrated an Indian tribe called the Wopotamis) goes to the US Supreme Court by claiming back the state of Nebraska on behalf of the Wopotamis! How does he manage? A protocol from 1878 found in a dusty archive. As he hatches his devious plan, his old adversary is back, lawyer Sam Deveraux. With the assistance of Jennifer Redwing, a Native American, and assorted colleagues, they do all they can to stop the Hawk once again before he threatens national security - remember Strategic Air Command is on the land the Wopotamis want back! And so the hilarity begins. Ludlum proves his versatility once again in a unique novel which contains an arrant sense of wild, madcap humour throughout!
