Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Kolt Raynor wants to get back into the good graces of Delta Force, even if it kills him. His bad decision on an earlier case caused deaths and his ejection from the unit. Now a terrorist has purchased missiles, and, after a test run shooting down a plane over Europe, he has set his sights on the U.S. Raynor has to work with former teammates who don’t trust him, and with newcomers who might be too raw to rely on. And the clock is ticking. Author Fury is a Delta Force alum, so he knows what’s he talking about and how to give his narrative a sense of authenticity. Raynor comes across as unlikable in the beginning, but as the story progresses, he becomes a hero worth rooting for. The relentless action and the scary scenario make this a quality read for fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor. --Jeff Ayers

Review

Fury again enlists gung-ho Delta Force Maj. Kolt "Racer" Raynor for anti-terrorist action, and this time the threat involves missiles and airliners rather than forted-up bad guys on the ground. Action-adventure from an author who's been at the sharp end of the spear. Kirkus Reviews

Dramatic and revealing, Tier One Wild takes listeners 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. goodreads (audio edition)

Fury has impressive credentials for writing about a frantic effort to ward off a terrorist mega-attack. Publishers Weekly

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 on Black Site

“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 on Black Site

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.

I'm a sucker for military action books so I pre-ordered Tier One Wild and eagerly devoured it as soon as it dropped onto my Kindle. I ordered this book for its entertainment value and was not disappointed despite having elevated expectations after reading Mr. Fury's previous two books. It is a wild, action packed, can't-put-it-down read which puts it right on the edge of being a 5-star effort.

HOWEVER... while the author's raw talent is clearly on display, I'm a little surprised he still exhibits the rough edges of an FNG author: some of the characters are woefully underdeveloped, a few characters who figure prominently for a few chapters -- and *are* well developed -- disappear suddenly without a trace, and the climax of the story happens literally at the end and there is no resolution phase (Fury did this with his previous book too -- and no, the epilogue of Black Site was a prelude to this book, not the resolution to the last one). From my perspective, this lack of resolution leaves me somewhat frustrated at the end of an otherwise excellent book which is why I'm only giving it four stars.

Dear Mr. Fury: as a former operator you know the value of teamwork and letting folks who are specialists in skills you don't have to do the tasks you cannot. Please, please, *PLEASE* team up with an experienced fiction writer and/or writing coach who can help you take your skills from "pretty darn good" to "tier one" before you publish your next book.

I was lucky enough to recieve Tier One Wild before it hit the shelves and finished reading it a few weeks ago. Kolt is back and this time you're in for an even Wilder ride than in Black Site. Dalton Fury has once again delivered a heart pounding, palm sweating, grab you by the collar ACTION novel that reads so good I wasn't able to stop even when I told myself I would 3 pages ago. The realistic descriptives of every detail paints a vivid picture page to page and twists and surprises from every angle. The ride with Kolt and his new team on missions is sure to leave you just like it left me, wanting a 3rd book from Dalton Fury and wanting it in a hurry !!! Tier One Wild was worth every penny, enjoy.

I'll keep this short.

The Good: The world of JSOC is as secretive as they come, and this work of fiction provides a fantastic insight into this world without breaking the rules of "Operational Security." The overall "strategic" level of plot and story for this book are good. It has an engaging story of a threat that keep some people awake at night (the shooting down of American Aircraft), characters that aren't super men, but all of the relatable vices that make them human.

The Bad: I remember reading his first work of fiction: Black Site, and wanting to read more. Unfortunately, this book was, at times, just painful to read.

The Ugly: The "tactical" level of this book, the writing, was just awful. The author TELLs the story and doesn't SHOW it. There is a lot of "and then. Then. Next. Then." Some major characters are never fleshed out and are nothing but names. Some minor characters we know everything we need to know and everything we don't. I feel as though the book was rushed into the market, the only editing done being spelling and grammar.

Conclusion: Good read to kill time and if you're interested in the world of JSOC. However, the Author needs to take a few classes on creative writing and how to Show and not Tell.

I really liked Fury's non-fictional account of his hunt for UBL in 'Kill Bin Laden' and I enjoyed his fictional story 'Black Site', but the follow on story of Kolt Raynor, 'Tier One Wild', was kind of a let down.

The book does have action and is fast paced, but there was nothing about the book that would tempt me to read it again. It was all black and white. The good guys were good, the bad guys bad. There wasn't anything that sets it apart from any other generic, fictional combat genre book.

Mr. Furys first two books were amazing and this one is no different. I would highly highly recommend this book and his other two to anyone looking for a exciting and all around great read. I really hope we keep getting more. Between Dalton Furry and Brad Taylor we are lucking out with badass authors. If they could talk Peter Blaber into writing again we would be set!

The attention to detail is amazing and if you have ever been stationed at Bragg you will recognize a lot of places both on and off post. I picked it up and could not put it down just like all his other books. From a Whiteside guy keep up the good work and I look forward to many more good reads.

Tier One Extreme Action--Lock and Load!
You want extreme, realistic, special operator action--Dalton Fury delivers in Tier One Wild. From page one, Mr. Fury takes you on the ultimate Delta Force thrill ride at breakneck speed. Hold on to your seat readers, you're in for Mr. Toad's wild ride.
Tier One Wild is a saga continuation of Mr. Fury's first Delta Force book Black Site, with all the usual suspect returning for more covert action. Kolt "Racer" Raynor, legendary Delta Force (DF) operator, is back to continue his assault on radical Muslim extremists. In this novel the DF operators hunt, track and are tasked to recover and/or destroy 50+ stolen Soviet made Libyan "Grinch" SA-24 Surface to Air Missiles (SAM). The book opens with Racer's return to Delta Force after being forced to leave for questionable excessive command exuberance which earned him identification as "persona non grata" in the spec ops world: The proverbial spec ops kiss of death. He is allowed to return after a 3 year banishment, older and wiser. Still, Racer, as he is known in the spec ops world, is a hard charging leader with an aggressive "can do" attitude that he has learned to temper and reign in. Tier One Wild is indeed one amazing, realistic wild ride as Racer and The Boys get the job done anyway they can.
No gratuitous sex, language, or violence. Although there is an amazing amount of covert combat action, this is NOT Delta Force gone wild. Rather, it is a realistic, well throughout novel on how Operators work in the shadowy world of cover special operations.
Character development was superb and in many ways carried this novel. Mr. Fury did an outstanding job of developing ALL the major players, warts and all.
