“Black Site is an amazing thriller from a new allstar in the genre. Packed with speed, surprise, and overwhelming violence of action, this is one book you will not be able to put down! Want to know what Spec Ops really look like? Read Dalton Fury. Simply put—nobody does it better.”
—Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Full Black

“Step aside, Jack Ryan—Kolt Raynor is the true hero of the new millennium. Written with an authentic voice, the debut novel by Dalton Fury, Black Site, left me breathless and awed by its battlefield- ardened reality. I kept having to remind myself this was fiction. Here is a book to put you in the trenches, slogging with the best, armed to the teeth, challenging you to keep up. If you want to know what it’s truly like to be a Delta Force operator, pick up this book today.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony

“Dalton Fury and I came up in the Unit together, flip-flopping troops and missions from Afghanistan to Iraq. What makes his writing unique is not just the tactical accuracy—which this book has in spades—but his unique understanding of the geo-political events that propel the plot. He is the real deal. If you want to know what it’s like on the front lines of the shadow war, pick up this book.”
—Brad Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of One Rough Man

From the Back Cover

"Step aside, Jack Ryan

Kolt Raynor is the true hero of the new millennium. Black Site left me

breathless and awed…I kept having to remind myself this was fiction."

―JAMES ROLLINS, New York Times bestselling author

Meet Kolt Raynor. Delta Force operator and one-time American hero, struggling to make sense of his life―and duty―after a mission gone bad. Three years ago, in the mountains of Pakistan, Raynor made a split-second decision to disobey orders―one that got some of his teammates killed and the rest captured. Now he's been given a second chance. A final shot at redemption. But it comes at a staggering price…


A shadowy group of former colleagues has asked Raynor to return, alone, to Pakistan's badlands. His assignment seems clear: find his missing men and bring them home. But when Raynor uncovers a sinister al Qaeda plot to capture a Black Site―a secret U.S.­­ prison―the entire region is at risk. A ruthless, unknown enemy has now entered the game…and he'll stop at nothing to make sure Raynor's mission is not accomplished.


If you want to know what it's like on the front lines of the shadow war,

pick up this book." ―BRAD TAYLOR, New York Times bestselling author of All Necessary Force

More About the Author

From the New York Times bestselling author of Kill Bin Laden, and the Military Advisor to Call of Duty's MW3 and the newly released COD ADVANCED WARFARE, comes a new Delta Force thriller series chronicling the good and bad calls of Kolt "Racer" Raynor - a disgraced Delta Force operator with issues. BLACK SITE started us off in early 2012, followed by TIER ONE WILD and FULL ASSAULT MODE. Book 4, ONE KILLER FORCE, hits the shelves on 20 Oct 2015. All the support is very much appreciated.

Dalton Fury retired from the military after more than twenty years of service. He served fifteen of those years in Special Operations Forces where he had the distinct honor of serving with some of the finest human beings in the world. Simply by chance, as a Delta Force troop commander, he served as the Ground Force Commander during the Battle of Tora Bora.

Dalton Fury was the senior ranking military official at the battle of Tora Bora in december 2001. As a delta force commander, he led 40 delta and 10 British special boat services (SBS) commando's, and about 50 support personnel, to hunt down and kill Usama Bin Laden. In Black Site, Dalton Fury draws on his hard won combat experiences and operational knowledge, in order to create Kolt "Racer" Raynor, an impetuous switched on and aggressive delta operator. The journey to becoming a delta team member is a long hard one, but the fall from hero to zero is rapid. That fall happens to Racer, when on a high risk mission to the badlands of Pakistan, he disobeys orders, which costs the live's of his teammates, and results in the downing of a rescue helicopter with a team of delta warriors aboard. He is booted from the unit and becomes persona non grata (PNG). He takes to heavy drinking and his life spirals out of control. He is given a 2nd chance to redeem himself, after delta learns that the team survived the crash and is being used as human shields for senior al-Qaeda and Taliban personnel from Reaper and Predator UAV drone attacks. The Pakistani government and the Intelligence Services (ISI) are unreliable. The U.S. is not allowed to send in a rescue team. Racer is sent in under deep cover alone to find the location of the missing team and bring back proof of life. In the process, he stumbles upon a plot by al-Qaeda to attack a "Black Site", where the U.S. with the help of some Pakistani special forces are running a joint interrogation operation for high value targets (HVT's). Black Site is a cover to cover non-stop edge of your seat action thriller. Dalton Fury's unique story telling ability, will put you in the middle of the action with Kolt.Read more ›

Dalton Fury over delivers in his book Black Site. The hero, Kolt Raynor, is smart, resourceful, and tough. The only thing that will stop Kolt from achieving his objective is death, and Kolt proves he is hard to kill. Kolt draws on his experience in Delta Force to conduct missions even Delta can't get authorization for. The action and drama is intense as Dalton Fury creates a story so real you will feel you are there with Kolt, and you will likely duck for cover as you pull for Kolt. There is no BS in this book. All the characters and situations are based on reality. I worked with Dalton in the military, and I was very impressed with the book. The audio version is well read, and is a good option. I found myself playing the audio at home on the Blu Ray because it grabbed me so well. Everyone I have recommended the book to has thanked me.

I won't spoil it with a description of the action. You will go through this book fast. Dalton leaves us wanting more. Even though this book just came out, I am ready for the next adventure of Kolt Raynor. If you don't like this book, you must be Taliban.

I bought this book the day it came out and finished it the same day. I can't remember ever spending $25 on a book and feeling like I got a bargain. Knowing the author's background, the fact that this book is fiction is lost in the first chapter. The line of what's real & what isn't is blurred right from the start. Rich with details that only someone with first hand experience in similar situations could employ- details of the guns, equipment, gear, military slang, inner thoughts & feelings, etc. The details any military minded individual crave.
And I can't say enough about the quality of writing in this book. It's paragraphed to perfection, starts & stops where it should- I lost track of how many times I had to stop reading, look up, take a deep breath and take in what I just read before going on. This book is one wild ride and I get the sense the author really enjoyed writing it.
Imo, the sequel can't come soon enough.
(note: I also think Black site would translate to film or a video game beautifully. Any movie director would be crazy not to jump at the chance to put this story on film and I wouldn't be suprised if there was plans for a movie already in the works).

Dalton Fury definitely has the credentials to write the genre, and you can tell with tactical details within the story. I liked the main character, Kolt Raynor, I liked the premise of the story, but quite honestly I felt the execution was lacking. Fury paced the story weird in the fact that he spends multiple pages on what seem like insignificant details, and blows right through pretty key plot points. He does write the hell out of action sequences though, I was very impressed when the bullets started flying. It's everything between the bullets that I thought was lacking.

It's not bad, and I would encourage others to check out the book if the price is right, but ultimately it didn't live up to the Vince Flynn or Brad Thor expectations.

If you like the Mitch Rapp series from Vince Flynn, here is your new favorite author... It's a mix of Clancy's Rainbow Six and Mitch Rapp , which I really liked. It also has a good sense of realism, rather than relying on miraculous events or near super human skills that in the real world would prove impossible.
