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

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 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.

Tier One Wild is the second episode in the Kolt "Racer" Raynor series by former Delta Force operator Dalton Fury. His other titles are "Kill Bin Laden" and "Black Site." He speaks as somebody who has "been there, and done that" in that he lead the initial hunt to kill UBL at Tora Bora, and served for years in America's most elite special operations unit. He has since appeared on TV (in heavy disguise) to talk about his time in what is generally referred to as "the unit" and has written about it. His ability to depict the people and places lends a certain flair to the book, but also leads to one of the downsides that keep me from giving it 5 stars.

The book picks up after "Black Site," with Racer reinstated into the army, and into Delta Force. "Tier One Wild" refers to his way of operating, of being on the wild side and skirting the rules. A theme throughout the book is Racer's attempts at personal growth and development. It opens as such books tend to, with a high risk mission that ends in success, but not without cost. In describing the action, Dalton does a great job of explaining a high risk direct action mission to the reader, without revealing anything that may be classified. This issue has been in the news much lately, and he skirts it well in writing fiction. The book builds a rapid pace from there, and talks us through how the "Delta Alert" squadron works. But this is also where the writer gets ahead of himself. In the last book, Racer talks about how he used to be a Troop Commander, and almost never interacted with the Delta Commanding Officer, Colonel Webber. Now he gets paged by him on an almost daily basis, and is in phone/radio contact with him continuously.

Prior to this book, the author published his non-fiction, first hand account of UBL's escape from Tora Bora. In this book, the author provides a gripping fictional account of AQ's most audacious plot ever inside the borders of the US. It starts with a super-hero stunt to establish the hero as a risk taker, but then provides a more readable account of Delta taking on multiple overseas missions.

Along the way, Murphy's law applies to both Delta and AQ, so the outcome seems to be uncertain right to the end. Amazon has a 4 star review as the most positive, despite numerous 5 star reviews. If you want an action page turner, ripped from the headlines, this book is for the reader of the fictional "Rogue Warrior" series. A strong hero needs strong villains. This book has both.
