Publisher's Summary

From the coauthor of the number-one New York Times best-selling American Sniper, this "inspired by true events" thriller follows one of America’s most lethal snipers as he leads the rescue of a downed female Special Ops pilot.
The President of the United States can’t decide how to respond to a classified video showing the Taliban’s brutal treatment of their captive - a female helicopter pilot of the Army’s elite Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Afraid that a botched rescue will further destabilize foreign policy and end his presidency, the Commander-in-Chief falters. But when the Special Ops community learns that one of their own is being tortured and will almost certainly be killed, no executive order will stop them from attempting a rescue mission.
In direct defiance of the President’s orders, Navy SEAL sniper Gil Shannon launches an audacious mission with the support of elite soldiers and an enigmatic government figure, to infiltrate the tribal faction holding the captured pilot. A pulse-pounding battle ensues, pitching the entire force of the Taliban against the fearless and heroic American sniper. Packed with blistering action and real-life combat scenes, Sniper Elite: One Way Trip will pin you to the edge of your seat until the very last sentence.

One of the best book I have encountered this year.

This book kept me engaged from start to finish. Some may be turned off by the level of violence depicted, but none of it was inappropriate given the book largely follows the adventure of a navy seal sniper.

The book is quite a trip, I must disagree with a few of the other reviewers when they say the author is nearly as good a Clancy. In my opinion he is far better.

If the publisher is monitoring these reviews, please note I am keen for more audio books from these authors. I will be checking back periodically to see if they have any new books.

The narrator Brian Hutchison, is quite good. He has a pleasant voice and if he worked a little more on his pacing and character voices he could be one of the very best. I would be happy to hear him again.

I NEED A CIGARETTE!

Where does Sniper Elite: One Way Trip rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty damn high. I've only listened to a little over a hundred audio books but I would definitely put "Sniper Elite" in the top 10. What a ride! This is one of the best action thrillers I've listened to. I think it's one, maybe two cuts above the "Gray Man" series by Mark Greany if that matters to you guys at all.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gil Shannon would be my favorite character. Not only is he a military bad ass who will disobey orders to save one of his own, he's also a down-to-earth country boy who's kinda shy. I guess he's got the duel personality thing going on.

What does Brian Hutchison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Well, he brings excitement to the story that I probably wouldn't get if i read it myself. I tell you what, he did a really good job with the voices of the different characters of the story(especially Gil). I have no complaints with his narration.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, this book had non-stop action with a great story arc but, you know, I have to work and do other stuff too. I wanted to listen to it in one sitting,sh*t ya.

Any additional comments?

not really.

Fantastic story - if you like Vince Flynn novels..

The story is fantastic - very exciting and not just about snipers.

Brad Thor, Vince Flynn and Tom Wood novels

What about Brian Hutchison’s performance did you like?

Didn't over-do the accents and still left them realistic - created a very exciting story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I can't really do this as I commute but I couldn't wait to get back into the car!

Jack Reacher move over Gill Shannon isin the house

The best action book so far, fast, gritty, hang on to your seat of your pants, you are going to be told how they do it in special forces. Busted hips, punchered lungs, blood and gore by the buckets fills.In for the job and out with your life. loved it all.
A fine display of locality and comradeship mixed up with political red tape.
Well done Scott & Thomas for a great story, I really felt the ride of a life time. Brian you narrated it brilliantly, bringing the story to life realistically. 5 big stars cheers

Action packed and fast paced.

Where does Sniper Elite: One Way Trip rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty high. Well worth the spend of a credit if you like this genre of fast paced action.

Any additional comments?

A book with a lot of detail (regarding, weapons, kit, etc.) but it manages to deliver this without interrupting the speed of the story.
This probably goes without saying, as it is clear that the story is military but ... parts of the book graphically describe violence and the language is best described as 'realistic'!!
