Michael Parson and his friend, Sophia Gold, battle a deranged terrorist who looks to correct history and change the results of the Bosnian War. On his second day at his new job at a Kyrgyzstan air base, Parson witnesses a plane crash on the runway. Inside the wreckage is a stash of opium. The drugs belong to arms dealer Viktor Dusic, who intended on using the funds from the drugs to finance a coup. With his core team, he hopes to instigate a terrorist attack that will begin the Bosnian conflict anew. Dusic is a savage who sees himself wronged by the past and happy to use any level of violence to achieve his goals. Young experienced the events of the Balkan wars first hand, and his knowledge translates well to the page. The reader develops a true understanding of the atrocities that occurred in the region and shares Young’s concern, expressed in an afterword, that this level of ethnic violence never happens again. --Jeff Ayers
Praise for The Warriors
“Young’s plots create a lot of dramatic heat, and his characters, ordinary Americans caught up in the disasters of our politically tumultuous times, behave in such ways as to win the reader’s affection even as the novelist himself works with great care and energy to win the reader’s trust . . . Reading Tom Young’s fiction gives you the idea of what actual modern combat might be like, not what someone may imagine it to be. His personal experience plus a good dose of narrative craft lead to yet another triumph of the fiction of contemporary warfare.”—The Dallas Morning News
“A terrific addition to what has become an exemplary series . . . Young handles all the military thriller logistics like a seasoned pro . . . but it's his superior writing that elevates this book above most of the others in this crowded subgenre.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“[Young] is an assured stylist with a gift for subtle characterizations and tightly controlled action scenes. The novel has moral depth as well . . . An expertly rendered tale of lingering hostilities rooted in the former Yugoslavia.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Young experienced the events of the Balkan wars first hand, and his knowledge translates well to the page. The reader develops a true understanding of the atrocities that occurred in the region and shares Young’s concern, expressed in an afterword, that this level of ethnic violence never happens again.”—Booklist
“Part of Tom Young’s attraction for readers is his sense of history and ability to explain the complicated origins of past conflicts . . . [and] as all good action thrillers do, The Warriors ends with a satisfying bang-up climax. Certainly fans of Tom Young couldn’t ask for more.”—Washington Independent Review of Books
