Justice Hawk, USN “completed a twenty-year service career in the operation, maintenance, repair and supervision of Nuclear Submarine Power Plants. He qualified as a Fast Attack submariner in 1980 as well as a Fleet Ballistic Missile submariner in 1972. In the span of his twenty years, he accumulated specialties in Nuclear Power Plant supervision, radiological controls and quality assurance.

 

Prior to retiring from the naval service, Justice Hawk acquired his Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts from the University of the State of New York (USNY) with concentrations in nuclear engineering, philosophy and Asian history & culture (237 undergraduate credits). After retirement, the University of Hawaii at Manoa Graduate School accepted Justice Hawk into the Political Science Department as a Master's candidate in Political Theory (Habermas, Foucault, Derrida, Bahktin, etc.) A Master's degree was awarded to him in 1990.

In 1990, Justice Hawk accepted a position as a Nuclear Engineering Department instructor in Nuclear Reactor Theory at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. From 1990 to 1995, Justice Hawk, in cooperation with his workmates, instituted a new training program that enable engineering graduates from University of Hawaii at Manoa to qualify as Nuclear Shift Test Engineers in two years. Prior to this new training program, engineering candidates at the Shipyard would flounder about for years and never qualify, despite being sent, at Government expense, to Mainland schools in order to learn the rudiments of Nuclear Power Plants. After some three years of developing the new training program, all candidates were completely trained, successfully, in house. Currently, Mainland Shipyards send their engineering candidates to Pearl Harbor for training. To say the least, the new training program was highly successful.

 

During his development of the new training program, Justice Hawk completed a semi-accredited doctorate in International Business Administration (1993). His dissertation was "Technical Training as a Comparative Advantage to Multinational Enterprises." Clearly, his dissertation research provided integral inputs to the new training program in the Nuclear Engineering Department at Pearl Harbor.

 

In 1996, the Independent State of Papua New Guinea commissioned Justice Hawk as an Honorary Consul General and Trade Representative. He oversaw huge projects in fishing, timber, gold and construction in the Pacific Theater. As Trade Representative under Deputy Prime Minister Michael Nali, Justice Hawk was elevated to Deputy Trade Minister.”  Justice Hawk is the author of Small Prices; Dark Waters; Three Novels in the Emergence Series; The Price For Gold; Silent; and, Sialon.

 

According to the book description of Small Prices, “This novel penetrates deeply into the underworld of Hawai'i. With amazing detail, armed robbery, burglary, corruption, drug trafficking, gambling, murder, murder for hire, political interference, prostitution, racism, and white slave trade form the background while the opportunistic characters attempt to navigate through a transitional period of laissez faire social attitudes to one of increasing restraint. Tropical exuberance slowly acquiesces to the pressures of modernity. Political interference dissipates justice. Crime pays in Chinatown. Trust dissolves into distrust. Welcome to Paradise!”

 

One reader said of Small Prices, “This book makes you definitely think twice about going on vacation. And how Hawaii can be so cosmetic in appearance. While I was reading this novel it gave me chills to think that "Easy Eddie" exists. You would never think that a place like Hawaii would have organized crime like that. Just another fabulous book by the man himself, Justice Hawk.”

 

One reader said of Small Prices, “this book is awesome. There is massive corruption in both government and private sector in Hawaii and this book brings it to the forefront where any reader - even elementary level - can understand it and in total shock. Some of the scenes are a little graphic with sexual overtones. If you have been the victim of corruption, this book is for you.”

 

One reader said of Small Prices, “people will go to jail over this novel. There is no statute of limitations on contract murder. The drug trafficking operation is too detailed to be fiction. I felt I was the plaintiff in the lawyer's office discussing the intricacies of the huge real estate scam. The detail in this novel is awesome! This book dissects Honolulu's criminal elements.”

 

According to the description of the Emergence series, it “proposes a scenario which confronts head-on the premise provided by Plato’s tripartite soul with reason governing spirit (emotions) and the appetite. As the trilogy unfolds, the scenario compels us to rethink not so much whether or not Plato was right, but why other options have been discounted or suppressed.

 

It cannot be understated that Plato’s tripartite soul acts as the supporting pillar to the entire entablature of Western Civilization. If Plato’s premise proves faulty, then the last 2500 years of debate dissipates into dust. Succinctly, our perception of reality is entirely incorrect.

 

By the time that the reader concludes Emergence 3, the other options should induce the measure of our fruitlessness over the last two millennia. Though Postmodernists have hinted to a failure of reason, the Emergence series should add the final punctuation mark. Our part in the Universe is quite different from what we have enticed and intoxicated ourselves into believing.”

 

 

One reader of Emergence said, “is a thriller and a page turner with a very different twist. It is thought provoking and provides the reader with ideas that could lead to very different conclusions about the theories it stimulates throughout the narrative. It definitely went down some "roads less traveled" based on my own real life experiences. If you want to read a book that will energize your thought processes, then pick this story up and start reading. It will be very difficult for you to put it back on the shelf once you start it. Fast paced and definitely worth the read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to broaden their perspectives on our planet and how it started and where it is going in the future.”

 

One reader of Emergence 2 said, “The mysterious entity of the initial Emergence novel reappears in the deep hydrothermal vent areas of the Pacific Ocean. Rather than merely explore the reality of the surface world, the entity chooses to adventure into our reality. Research in origins of life, geology and Super String Theory merge to produce an intense tale of scientific inquiry that questions our most sacred assumptions and beliefs.

 

Justice Hawk has hit another home run with Emergence 2. he makes every reader think of the many possibilities of this complex world, some are facts as we know of them and others we just think of them as fiction. Justice Hawk takes the fiction part and makes you realize that it just might be the real facts. This is a must read for anyone that has read Emergence.”

 

One reader of Emergence 2 said, A great read, especially if you have read Emergence. It takes the next step in a process that suggests that perhaps we have some different life forms on earth watching and waiting to take some not so friendly action on the human race and planet earth. Very exciting and very plausible ideas about this theory are set forth in this book. I found myself pondering all sorts of possibilities as I read the book. I have read Emergence and this was a great second book based on that first publication. I found the story line to be very exciting and full of suspenseful scenarios. I would recommend this book to one and all. I could not put it down once I got into it.”

 

One reader of Emergence 3 said, “The Emergence series proposes a scenario which confronts head-on the premise provided by Plato's tripartite soul with reason governing spirit (emotions) and the appetite. As the trilogy unfolds, the scenario compels us to rethink not so much whether or not Plato was right, but why other options have been discounted or suppressed. It cannot be understated that Plato's tripartite soul acts as the supporting pillar to the entire entablature of Western Civilization. If Plato's premise proves faulty, then the last 2500 years of debate dissipates into dust. Succinctly, our perception of reality is entirely incorrect.

 

By the time that the reader concludes Emergence 3, the other options should induce the measure of our fruitlessness over the last two millennia. Though Postmodernists have hinted to a failure of reason, the Emergence series should add the final punctuation mark. Our part in the Universe is quite different from what we have enticed and intoxicated ourselves into believing.”

According to the book description of Sialon, “This is a 21st century story of hard choices, told from the perspective of the Indonesian Army in the Province of Irian Jaya, Republic of Indonesia. Diplomacy, foreign direct investment and transmigration pit the Muslim culture of Javanese Imperialism against the Christian, Stone Age culture of the indigenous population. No two cultures could be further apart. The credits and debits of the prior centuries unfold here. This is a story of genocide.”

One reader of Sialon said, “Indonesia's new President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono takes the oath of office while an official holds the Koran book during the inauguration ceremony at Parliament, in Jakarta yesterday. Former army general Yudhoyono took the oath to be sworn in as Indonesia's sixth president, replacing Megawati Sukarnoputri whom he defeated in the country's first direct election. Yudhoyono was the Security Minister portrayed in the novel. The world should brace for rough times ahead ... including our troops in Iraq!”

According to the book description of Dark Waters, “In this novel, many readers will encounter, perhaps for the first time, seagoing people whose predecessors carried on a long-distanced trade at a sustained and incredible magnitude long before the dawn of the Roman Empire. It is not by accident or a result of European and American innovation that the waterways in this novel have become so important to world trade in our present day. These waterways have maintained that distinction for millennia. Allow Justice Hawk to introduce you to these people and their perceptions of our world. This is a story about the most cunning and ruthless pirates the world has ever known.”

 

One reader of Dark Waters said, it “is an excellent novel. As I read it, I felt like I knew what it was like to be aboard a cargo ship in the waterways of Southeast Asia. Justice Hawk does a great job describing, in vivid detail, the specifics of what a sailor sees senses and feels as he is aboard a ship. The fact that the sailor in the book is a modern-day pirate adds to the richness and depth of the description.

 

The novel also contains a lot of philosophic observations on human nature, international politics and economics. The main pirate in the book often gets down to the fundamentals of life, both verbally and physically. However he never descends into cynicism. Instead, the observations are born of practical experience (instead of theoretical philosophies). These perceptions are appropriately woven into the main plot line of the novel. I also learned a lot about the "dark side" of international trade; about the repugnant details of some trade that helps determine the ultimate price of the products that many people in the world buy.

 

I am left with wanting to board a ship myself and sail the waters that Justice Hawk describes so well in the book. The description of the land from the ship gives you an appreciation of the geographic wonder of the area. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get a feeling of a part of the world that is not discussed much in the American mainstream media.”

 

According to the book description of Silent, “This story traces the life of a nuclear-trained, enlisted submariner during a deterrent patrol aboard a nuclear-powered, fleet ballistic missile submarine in the Western Pacific Theater. Come and experience life under the waves, knowing you have the capability to destroy civilization any hour of the day, any day of the month for the duration of your deployment. Inhale your last breath of fresh air to the "ouga, ouga" screams of the claxon, as you submerge into the depths, silent and undetected. On this voyage, you will travel more than 20,000 leagues under the sea.”

 

One reader of Silent said, “This Author is so different and refreshing, I've enjoyed all his books so far including this one. I hope he continues to write such interesting novels. The life of a submariner, on a nuclear submarine, not something I have really ever thought about, and I doubt that many other people have either. What these brave men endure for our safety is amazing. Submerged in cramped spaces for months at a time, with no fresh air, silent, alone in the depths of the ocean. Yet with the capability at a moments notice to destroy the world. This really was a voyage 20,000 leagues under the sea, but in the real world.”

 

One reader of Silent said, “Not many people get to set foot in an underwater sub submerged in the dark deep open waters of the dangerous cold ocean. Justice Hawk gives us this experience without even setting foot in a nuclear tin can. But you can only come to appreciate the men and woman that silently protect us in these shadow hunters of the wet chill of the sea.”

 

One reader of Silent said, “Silent by Justice Hawk captures the life of American submariners and their lives in a very special way. It gives you valuable insight as to what they do and how critical and vital their mission is to the United States of America. As someone who has been involved in the United States submarine program for over 38 years, I can tell you that it captures the essence of the "Silent Service" and truly exemplifies what a very unique branch of the Navy that submarines are and how it all works to be a vital cog in the "wheel of defense" of this country. A very interesting read. I couldn't put it down once I started on it. Very fast paced, loaded with a lot of very interesting facts and experiences from the first hand perspective of the author. I heartily recommend it!”

 

According to the book description of The Price For Gold, “During the process of acquiring foreign direct investment for infrastructure development and resource extraction projects in a less developed country, a trade representative of consular stature discovers an ocean of bureaucratic corruption and international fraud. The depth of the bureaucratic involvement thwarts all attempts by the consular officer to provide a safe haven for foreign investors. Faced with the reality of the situation and its macabre consequences for the less developed country s future development, the consular officer is forced into a moment of decision. Does he overlook what he has unearthed and continue to bask in the privileges afforded to his consular status, as it appears many of his peers and superiors have done? Or, does he uphold that to which he has been commissioned? The grandeur of authority and privilege weigh heavily against the burden of responsibility. Either choice ends his ability to continue the effectiveness of his commissioned status. The decision eventually topples the government of the less developed country and unseats over 85% of the elected officials.”
