Hostages are about to die, facing execution at the hands of the scourge of the seas - pirates. The objective is inside Somalia. Al Qaeda has taken piracy under its control to fund their worldwide quest for terror and death in the name of Islam. Talley's unit is hastily transferred to a nuclear carrier patrolling the Arabian Sea. Echo Six is to go ashore, kill the pirates and rescue the hostages. Exfiltration will be via the advanced, super-silent Black Hawks of the secretive 160th Aviation Regiment. Yet plans can and often do go wrong. And this time is no exception.
Fighting with an ill-prepared yet expert squad of operatives, Talley has to control the bitter rivalry of his own men as they close with the enemy. An enemy who is well equipped and well prepared for the coming attack. Behind him, his own commanders are riven by political infighting and personal agendas that threaten to tear his unit apart almost before it has got off the ground. And the mission rapidly expands to take in new and larger, more dangerous objectives. Echo Six: Black Ops is an exciting and bloodthirsty story of the fierce, no-quarters fighting of a NATO SpecOps unit.

military, pirates, action-adventure
Fast paced and engaging military action. The characters are interesting and engaging, the action is nonstop. The premise of an international unit made up of the most skilled (and egotistical) military men from several countries is a big hook, and the writing does not disappoint.
Tim Welch is more than up to the challenge of narration!

Fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat!!!!
If you could sum up Echo Six: Black Ops - Raid on Somalia in three words, what would they be?
Fast Paced, Exciting and Adrenaline Rush!
If you’ve listened to books by Eric Meyer before, how does this one compare?
This is the first time I have listened to Eric Meyers, he is an excellent writer. He has a strong narrative voice for all of his characters.
Which character – as performed by Tim Welch – was your favorite?
I enjoyed all of the performances of each character but by far my favorite was Lieutenant Abe Talley. The voice matched the angst that Talley was feeling during the course of the novel.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I loved the moment where Talley finally began to trust Captain Walker, they have a strong relationship. They both support each other even when Talley stops trusting everyone including himself.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed both the narration and the story of Echo Six Black Ops!
