Juba's a formidable foe, as he's undergone the same training as Swanson, and is bent on unleashing a new and terrifying chemical WMD against the Western world to enrich himself while assuaging his own psychotic obsessions. To defeat him, Swanson must penetrate the defenses of radical Islam, in Iran and Europe, as well as in the United States itself.
Fast-paced, tightly plotted, with engaging and memorable characters, authors Coughlin and Davis prove that "Kill Zone" was no flash in the pan. Kyle Swanson's a hero for the 21st Century in the mold of Mitch Rapp and Bob Lee Swagger.
This is a terrific novel. I eagerly await the next installment.
responsible for the assassination is a legendary sniper named Juba. He is
a former British Royal Marine who also trained as a sniper. He is deadly
and quite effective. He has family in London where he trained. He
has no use for al-Qaeda and has joined forces with a terrorist leader named Saladin. Saladin was a member of Unit 999 the unit that builds
these dangerous weapons for Saddam Hussein. Juba is dispatchrd to London to use the weapon on a Royal wedding. Mass death results. The United States dispatches Kyle Swanson to find and kill Juba. Swanson has been
listed as dead but is in facr very alive. He is a very instrumental part
of Task Force Trident a specialized terrorist fighting group. He begins
pursuing Juba on a worldwide basis. They have several near confrontations.
Juba mamages to detonate the weapon at a baseball game in San Francisco.
The action moves to Iraq where they have a confrontation. This is a very
action packed book that you will enjoy.
*NOTE:* This review may contain a minor "spoiler" for anyone who hasn't read "KILL ZONE"... any of the author's existing loyal readers will have no such problem. The author's alter ego... "deceased" infamous former USMC sniper Kyle Swanson... "has had a million aliases but no real name at all because he was officially dead." Kyle is part of a "TOP-TOP-SECRET" organization... that is so "TOP-TOP-SECRET"... that it doesn't exist. Kyle reports directly to General Bradley Middleton... whose life he saved in "KILL ZONE"... and Middleton reports directly to the President. As Kyle's deep "black-op's" group battles global terrorism... nothing is out of bounds... including Presidential directed assassination. The non-stop covert action scenarios could easily have been ripped directly from today's actual headlines. In fact any terrorist plots depicted by the author... that weren't ripped from the headlines... were probably deemed not appropriate for public consumption by the governmental powers that be.
This pulse-pounding novel is riveting in its international intrigue that knows no boundaries. The reader is transported from illicit entry into Iran in search of Saddam Hussein's WMD's which were allegedly hidden in a "Palace Of Death" in Iran... to a poisonous gas... which had its lethal effectiveness proven to the world... in a deadly demonstration in London...Read more ›
Black ops sniper Kyle Swanson comes up against terrorists who have a WOMD and are prepared to use it. One of the lead terrorists is a British Muslim who is also a top sniper. Cue some scampering around the world, some Special Forces action, some heavy duty sniping and some terrorist carnage.
The writing is fine, the characters slightly underdeveloped and it does seem to make an effort to tick all the boxes required of this kind of thriller, sometimes a bit too obviously. Despite the main bad guy being a Brit, the author is otherwise pretty positive towards Britain which made a refreshing change. There are some flaws (some underused characters and a few plot/logic holes) but with this kind of book you have moderate expectations, you don't expect mind blowing literature - you expect a read and forget thriller and in that regard this ticks all those boxes well enough.
