Get ready for a page-turning, thrill ride. I have always been a fan of the TV show, “Mission: Impossible. Put together a team to run a mission against impossible odds in a very short period of time. That is what Mrs. McEwen and Koloniar have done in this top notch military thriller.

Synopsis

From the coauthor of Chris Kyle’s #1 New York Times bestseller, American Sniper: In direct defiance of the president’s orders, Navy Master Chief Gil Shannon, one of America’s most lethal SEAL snipers, launches a bold mission comprised of SEAL Team Six and Delta Force fighters to free a captured female helicopter pilot being held by Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan.

The president is afraid a botched rescue could jeopardize US foreign policy as well as end his presidency. But once the special ops community learns that one of their own—the first female helicopter pilot of the Army’s elite 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR)—is being held and brutally mistreated, there is no executive order strong enough to stop them from attempting to rescue her.

This fast-paced, action-packed thriller with incredibly realistic and blistering battles introduces a new American hero, Gil Shannon, whose iron will and expertise with the .308 Remington Modular sniper rifle will spell the difference between freedom and an ignoble death for America’s female POW.

McEwen and Koloniar convincingly capture the friction between soldiers, intelligence officers, and politicians...Snappy dialogue and well-timed humor offset an abundance of acronyms and technical weapons references....for an unfiltered portrayal of modern warfare backed by complex yet compelling storytelling, this one hits the target.
