New York Times bestselling author and former Delta Force commander Dalton Fury (Black Site and Kill Bin Laden) is back with an explosive new thriller Former disgraced Delta Force commander Kolt Racer Raynor has earned his way back into The Unit after redeeming himself during an explosive operation at a black site in Pakistan. But he is about to face his deadliest challenge yet.The most wanted man in the world, American al Qaeda commander Daoud al Amriki, and his handpicked team of terrorist operatives, have acquired stores of Russian-built, shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAM's) from ex-Libyan spies in Cairo. Their mission: infiltrate the United States and take down American aircraft. The country's best are tasked with stopping them. But when a SEAL Team Six mission to take down al Amriki goes wrong, Major Raynor and his Delta Force team find themselves front and center as Amriki and his terrorists work their way closer to America. And time is running out.Dramatic and revealing, Tier One Wild takes readers on an international thrill ride from the black ops nerve center of JSOC to the bloody streets of Cairo in a story only a former Delta Force commander could tell.
Fury has impressive credentials for writing about a frantic effort to ward off a terrorist mega-attack, having served as the senior ranking military officer at the Battle of Tora Bora and helped plan the operation that took out Bin Laden. Nevertheless, his fast-paced second Delta Force novel starring Kolt "Racer" Raynor (after 2012's Black Site) reads like countless other post-9/11 fictional accounts of maverick covert U.S. operatives. In the dramatic opening, Raynor and his team attempt a daring hostage rescue from a hijacked plane set to take off from New Delhi. After the dust settles from that operation, his focus turns to al-Qaeda leader Daoud al-Amriki, recently identified as American renegade David Wade Doyle, who has just closed on the purchase of 60 antiaircraft missiles. While, unsurprisingly, nothing rings false, readers won't necessarily feel as if they're experiencing exactly what the real Delta Force does. Agent: Scott Miller, Trident Media Group. (Oct.)
