Book Description

Navy Seal, Logan Alexander, is trying to put his life back together following a career-ending injury in Afghanistan, when he learns that his younger brother, Cooper, has been killed in an ambush while on patrol with his Ranger unit in Iraq. As Alexander delves into the circumstances leading to Cooper’s death, he learns of the role that the secret arm of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Qods Force, plays in exporting terror. Alexander vows to avenge his brother’s death. With the financial backing of a Kuwaiti billionaire, and a group of like-minded Special Forces operatives, Alexander conceives a plan that takes his team to the Sonora Desert, Europe, and the Middle East, where he comes face-to-face with the man responsible for Cooper’s death.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I was inspired to write Cooper's Revenge in order to draw attention to the terrible toll that IED's have exacted on our men and women in the military as well as to highlight Iran's complicity in this tragedy through its training of proxies -- the Taliban and Al Qaeda -- to further their objectives.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guard's super secret foreign arm, the Qods Force, wages its battles against the U.S. and our allies at the direction of the Iranian leadership, the ayatollahs.  They are largely held unaccountable for their actions because international attention is focused on Iran's nuclear ambitions.  Indeed, Iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapon poses the graver threat to our national security and deserves our greatest attention. 
Yet, when Iran maims and kills our soldiers, directly or indirectly through its proxies and with IED's that they have provided for this purpose, they should be held accountable.  Although a work of fiction, highlighting their role in this area is a small step in that direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two for one = a great book at a low price June 26, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd be the first to admit that price should not be a consideration in writing a book review. And Cooper's revenge is a great book entirely on its own merit. It is a fascinating story with a few unexpected twists and turns. It involves our Middle East conflict which makes it topical and even more interesting. It is written by a former CIA operative who clearly knows a lot about the territory covered in the book. It discloses information, admittedly in a novel so the facts are not definite but there is enough publicly known knowledge to suggest it is more truth than fiction. In short a compelling read that I would highly recommend in any event.
Aside from the political relevance it is a remarkably well written and entertaining story. I read it over the course of two days only because I had a lot of other things to do during that time. Otherwise it would have been read cover to cover in just one sitting. Once you start it is hard to leave the story other than perhaps for a quick snack or something to drink. I really enjoyed the main character, Logan Alexander, and not just because we share a name (My middle name is Logan). He is a true tough as nails American hero. I suspect we will meet Logan again in future adventures and I'm looking forward to it.
But in truth I found the chief villian in the story even more fascinating. Col. Ghabel was clearly a bad guy and twice in the story exhibited the kind of brutal viciousness we would expect from a bad guy. Yet on other instances, namely in his relationship with his wife, his concern and caring when her father died, and in his sympathetic approach to dealing with problems the wife of a soldier who had died under his command was having with authorities he demonstrated a very human and caring side.

Author T. L. Williams' novel opens with a series of horrible events that would physically and emotionally cripple most men, but the protagonist, Logan Alexander is not most guys. He accepts his fate, starts a new life and after he discovers terrorists killed someone very close to him, struggles with how to accept that reality. The former seal realizes he cannot rest until he revenges this murder. His new quest is to find those responsible and eliminate them. He also realizes that this must be a covert action and in a sense, he becomes a lethal international vigilante or gun for hire who swiftly, lethally and with style assassinates those responsible. His targets for revenge are members of the Iranian Qods, a powerful and cunning adversary.

Logan's covert mission financed by a Kuwaiti Prince whose family also suffered from the Iranian terrorists takes the reader through the perils and dark world Logan must traverse to accomplish his revenge. Then something unthinkable happens just before the novel's end that changes everything.

"Cooper's Revenge" is a fictional story that entertains, but also educates the reader to many of the Middle East issues. The author's knowledge of real covert missions against terrorists keeps the story realistic and the reader in the thick of the action. Williams obviously used his CIA knowledge of weaponry and ballistics to add his "signature" style to the book. Williams does a great job of developing his characters, building the story, setting the stage for the next thing that will happen and then throwing in the unexpected. You will enjoy every minute of this read and look forward to the next mission of Logan Alexander.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and timely story June 17, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Williams has written a gripping thriller that draws from today's headlines. The author clearly knows Iran and Afghanistan well, and makes the characters from Iran, in particular, real human beings beyond the stereotypes. The American characters are well-drawn as well. I particularly enjoyed the insights into US Special Forces' operations.

The story is exciting and made me want to get to the next chapter. It's not a book you can put down and come back to a week later.

Can we expect a sequel?

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Believe The Reviews!! March 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you haven't figured it out already often reviews are written by friends and family of the author which I believe is the case here.

Many of the reviews suggest that the book is a "Thriller" but that is no where near what this book is. Thrillers have twist and turns and attempt to keep you trying to figure out what is going to happen next. This book had none of that. There was only one instance in the book that I said "I did not see that coming".

Another reviewer suggested that the main character in the book is similar to "Mitch Rapp" from the Vince Flynn series and nothing could be further from the truth. Mitch Rapp is a assassin that tracks and kills terrorists around the globe. Logan Alexander (the main character) never kills one person in this book.

The bottom line is the author of the book appears very knowledgeable about the middle east and their culture. I think he would do better with non fiction because this book was a real snoozer.
