Book Description

Zeb Carter doesn't exist



The ex-Special Forces operative has no past and undertakes missions for a shadowy government agency that no one knows of.

A routine mission to the Congo to identify rogue mercenaries explodes when he witnesses barbaric acts that he can’t walk away from. Plagued by the scale of the unspeakable crimes and its victims, Zeb does something he has never done before.

He breaks the mission rules and decides to hunt the ruthless perpetrators.

Disowned by his own agency and with just a maverick intelligence analyst, Broker, along with him, Zeb tracks the perpetrators to New York.

There he enters a grey world of conspiracy and hidden agendas, facing opponents not just those he’s hunting and finds that he alone is interested in justice.

Everyone else wants the affair buried and Zeb along with it.


The Reluctant Warrior, Book Two in the Warrior series, is now published and is available on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ty Peterson's The Warrior May 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a very good thriller with adventure, suspense, challenges of
true gruesome atrocities occurring verus secret political cover ups,
kidnapping and some history of mining in the Congo. There is some
humor and family relationships involved adding to the plot.
The author is able to weave together past events into the present
smoothly and without difficulty. The twists & turns within the story
keep you holding your breathe while sitting on the edge of your
seat.
The main character & his friends have unique traits used for
survival. These skills are exhibited throughout the story.
Zebediah Carter, an ex-Special Force is a private military
contractor sent into the Democratic Republic of Congo. He is
about to wrap up his observation mission when he comes to a
village where US ex-military men are committing gruesome
atrocities. Carter calls this group “ The Rogue Six “. Even though
his handler tells him to ignore what is happening, Carter intervenes
taking out three of the six.
Back in the states with orders to let the other “Rogue Three” alone,
Carter digs into their whereabouts. Circumstance arise that Carter
needs to handle with his crew.
What a astonishing ending to a good thriller!!
Don’t miss reading this book.
I received this ebook as a gift from the author. My opinion is my
own. Thank you Ty for a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rogue Six, now Rogue Three May 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story starts with Zeb Carter, ex-Special Forces and now private military contractor, in the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo). He ends up at the village of Luvungi and witnesses terrible atrocities committed against women and children by a group of men he calls the Rogue Six. After killing three of the group, he follows the other three to the U.S. to avenge the villagers.

Carter is a bigger-than-life hero. Able to kill with all kinds of weapons including his bare hands, he tracks the monstrous trio including their leader Carsten Holt and asks for help along the way from friends with specialized skill sets, not only to help find and kill the Rogue Three but also to help protect family and friends. I especially liked Broker, tech genius, and young boy Rory.

Fast paced, full of action and colorful characters, I enjoyed this thrill-a-minute revenge themed thriller.

I do wish the backstories of the characters had been developed more. And the book could have used a bit more editing for punctuation and word usage.

But if you like thrillers or adventure stories, I think you will like this first in a series by author Patterson.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Warrior September 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this ebook, "The Warrior" by Ty Patterson, as a gift from the author. First of all I must say that this is not the sort of novel I usually read...but I must say I was very impressed with the writing skills and exciting plot. I would classify this novel as a very good thriller with adventure, suspense, intrigue and a touch of humor rolled into one.

Zebediah (Zeb) Carter, ex-Special Force is a private military contractor sent into the Democratic Republic of Congo. He is about to wrap up his observation mission when he comes to the village of Luvungi, where he witnesses US ex-military men are committing terrible atrocities against women and children by a group of men. Carter calls this group “ The Rogue Six “. Even though his handler tells him to ignore what is happening, Carter intervenes taking out three of the six. Back in the states with orders to let the other “Rogue Three” alone. Carter digs into their whereabouts. Circumstance arise that Carter needs to handle with his crew.

The main character & his friends have unique traits used
for survival. These skills are exhibited throughout the
story.

This is a fast paced adventure/thriller, full of action, twists and turns and unique characters. As it was a short novel, I felt the author was not given ample time to further develop the richness of the characters. But if you like thrillers or adventure stories, I think you will like this first in a series by author Patterson.What a astonishing ending to a good thriller! Don’t miss reading this book.

This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.

Disclosure: I was requested by the author of this book to give an honest review.

A thrilling story about trying to do the right thing, even when the right people are against you.

This is the story of a man that tries to do the right thing for anyone needing help. It is also the story of the brotherhood of warriors, who bond together to aid each other.

Ty Patterson does a fantastic job describing the life a loner. He also does wonders with a drum of India, called the tabla. I could almost hear the sounds of the drum in my head as I read the story. I found the descriptions of life outside the USA quite good. There are a few grammar mistakes in this book, but they will not detract from the reading experience.

Through "The Warrior", the author takes us on a journey that is very intense. He gives us a look into atrocities committed in the world, and the men who fight against such crimes.

I can recommend this book to those who read thrillers, as well as those who read military novels. This story ended with an impact I did not expect, and look forward to any sequel. Being a first novel, the author has set a very high standard for himself and I, as a reader, believe he can uphold that standard.
