I purchased and read both book one and two from this series and while it did take me a while to settle in to the storyline, I was glad to have persevered.
I do enjoy this type of story which may be very close to the truth on places it is still a work of what I call “believable fiction” where they all merge and slowly encircle you until you have no idea what is going to happen. I’m now looking forwards to the next release.
The Israeli Head of Spec Ops had the right of it, "'The enemy of my enemy is my friend' is broken logic." The USA allies itself with one group against another only to have that ally turn on us a little later and kill us with our own weapons.
This is a fantastic series about great warriors. They are real and fully-rounded, and we trust them with our babies' lives. Jack Dempsey is a Seal's seal and more; he can't stop being what he is even though it has cost him the wife he loves and the son he misses more than anything. Dempsey is chasing the terrorist-who-got-away from the first book; this time there is a plan to hit several targets in the US simultaneously. One of the targets is Atlanta, where his "widowed" wife and son are now living, so Dempsey has a personal reason to stop the terrorists first.
There is lots of Special Forces action, some personality conflicts among the good guys, and some real human emotions. Great read all around. Ray Porter is outstanding.

This writing team of Andrews and Wilson have achieved a great synergy in that the reader would never know the book was collaboratively written. The voice is consistent and the integration of the two authors is seamless. They bring to life the feel of being Tier One operators and the trials and tests their characters undergo under the most adverse combat conditions.
If this book was any more real, it would come sold with a plate carrier, 4 tube NVG's and a SOPMOD M4.
While this book is 'fiction', it sounds very familiar. This book packs in the action non-stop. If you love the world of black ops written by people who know what they are actually talking about and aren't spouting off endorsements from SHOT show 2016, then this is a book you need to read.
While I love the action Brad Thor writes, he always has an agenda. Brad Taylor sometimes gets too bogged down in never ending surveillance scenarios. Joshua Hood and Scott McEwen don't have any new books out, and the Clancy novels are disjointed books relying on name recognition, Tier One is a nice book to read without feeling like your being 'spoken' too. You are along for the ride as Wilson and Andrews describe what's going on, your mind is able to fill in the rest. Only Steven Konkoly does this trick better. You can read the description of the story anywhere, but the parts I look for like: is the story believable? Yes. Told Well? Yes. Heavy action? Yes. Detailed down to the correct ammo an MP7A3 uses? Yes again. Worth a read and sure to be read again and again.
Ray Portor was outstanding with the delivery of the story
