“The Enemy of My County” is book 1 in a 2 parter by Jason Kasper, that features his hero, David Rivers. It’s also my first book by Kasper and I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of characterization, pacing and plotting. I was expecting a Rambo like free for all, with unrealistic acts of physical impossibility and instead I found a much more compelling story.
David and his team are for sure hard core black-ops guys. The language is typical, but not gratuitous and there’s plenty of violence and military action. Once again, I was surprised at the restraint when it came to the descriptive factor, happily surprised. These guys are also an emotional bunch and by showing a full range of feelings, it was easier to get to know them and for the story to resonate; which it did.
There’s both a foreign and domestic component to this tale. Capital Hill, the Military and CIA, clash over who’s in charge, ultimatums, stones thrown, fingers pointed and a task still need doing while the grownups are slinging at each other missing the point; it’s like watching cable news. David and his team stay on task at times “coloring outside the lines” to get results.
When the story turns domestic it becomes more intense, higher energy and more personal. Perhaps that’s due to the family aspect or it’s the last half coming to a natural building for conclusion. In either case, I enjoyed it more. The action scenes are tight, dialogue is biting and the emotional drive for success ties all elements together.
A well crafted thriller with an invitation waiting for volume 2, due in January ‘22📚

My first by this author, but certainly not my last.
And what a beginning!
Not a disillusioned vet and mercenary anymore, David is now a married man, with a young daughter at his charge (read the American Mercenary series to know that story). And his team of just as former and disillusioned vets and mercenaries, whom we meet again with great pleasure.
A roller-coaster of action, seen from all the protagonists' eyes (a great first in Kasper's books, which usually focus either solely on one character, or on three, depending on which series), but also a breathtaking suspense from start to finish.
This is not only Jason Kasper's most voluminous book, it is also his best to date. An absolute must!
