Editorial Reviews

Review

PRAISE FOR STEPHEN TEMPLIN
"As action packed as a Tom Clancy thriller . . . harrowing . . . adrenaline-laced."
--New York Times

"Pulses with the grit of a Jerry Bruckheimer production . . ."
--Washington Post

"Another great novel reflecting our spec ops forces' global capabilities. Written by a proven and insightful master storyteller."
--Howard E. Wasdin, former SEAL Team Six sniper and NYT bestselling author of SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper and Easy Day for the Dead

"A muscular thrill ride that's rich with detail and full of heart and energy. A standout in the ranks of modern action-adventure thrillers."
--Mark Greaney, #1 NYT bestselling author of Tom Clancy True Faith and Allegiance and Agent in Place (Gray Man)

"Grabs you on page one and is hard to put down."
--General Henry H. Shelton, former commander in chief of the US Special Operations Command and 14th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

"A must read."
--Jack Coughlin, former gunnery sergeant, USMC, and bestselling author of In the Crosshairs: A Kyle Swanson Sniper Novel and Shooter

"Eloquent, realistic, humorous, and thought-provoking . . ."
--Mark Beder, former lieutenant commander, SEAL assault team leader

"Great fast paced novel drawing readers deeper into the flames of operational activity hell. Attrition goes beyond body count, Templin captures warriors' souls. Hardware is real, situational responses are real, and the heat of the moment humor is real. There are numerous great thriller writers in the market place but Stephen Templin brings great writing and authenticity to the story for an easy to follow thrill ride with unique characters and twists."
--JT Patten, CT intelligence specialist and bestselling author of Buried in Black & Safe Havens

"There are few authors who have as deep an understanding of the shadowy world of global special operations as Stephen Templin. And there are fewer still who can synthesize that knowledge into a thrilling narrative so deftly . . . Stephen weaves a tale that reflects today's complicated reality, where motives and allegiances are rarely black and white and there are no easy answers. Even more impressively, he manages to do this while still bringing plenty of visceral gunfights and car chases."
--Chris Martin, bestselling author of Modern American Snipers

"A masterful blend . . . not knowing if you're about to take a bullet to the head from a SEAL sniper or get hit in the gut with a punch line."
--Dalton Fury, former Delta Force commander and NYT bestselling author of Execute Authority: A Delta Force Novel and Kill Bin Laden

About the Author

Stephen Templin was born in Los Angeles and lived in Arizona, Idaho, and North Carolina before joining the US Navy, where he completed Hell Week, qualified as a pistol and rifle expert, and blew things up during BUD/S training (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL Training). After the navy, he became a missionary and a student. Then for fourteen years he lectured as a tenured professor at Meio University in Japan, where he trained in the martial art aikido. He won the Silver Screenwriter's Award at the Houston International Film Festival, has appeared on many bestseller lists, and has been translated into thirteen languages. He earned a doctorate in education and teaches university courses on English, education, TESOL, applied linguistics, and intercultural communication. He lives in Dallas-Fort Worth.
