Publisher's Summary

Life is short and justice a rare commodity in the harsh wastelands of Afghanistan. Navy SEAL Lieutenant Rafe Stoner is about to encounter this cruel truth the hard way. An operation goes tragically wrong, and a Taliban sniper team ambushes a UNHCR ambulance. One of the dead is the woman with whom he intended to start a new life. Stoner turns his back on civilization, and begins a new career as a gun-for-hire in the bitter land ruled by the bomb and the bullet.
With a growing reputation as a man who gets results, the former SEAL agrees to locate the murderer of a young boy's father. This time, he is up against overwhelming odds, so he recruits a former friend, Greg Blum, as an extra gun. Blum, the son of a Russian who fought in Afghanistan during the Russian invasion, is a talented shooter. He is also the man Stoner once threatened to kill.
The operation becomes a desperate fight for survival. Battling drug-traffickers, murderers and warlords, Stoner has to employ all of his SEAL skills just to stay alive. The two men fight their way through ambush and the bitter snows of winter to reach their target. Standing in their way is a vicious warlord, Massoud, who counts among his ranks a psychopathic American sniper. The battle becomes a bloody and ferocious duel to the death.
This is a spectacular story of a fight for justice in a ruined and war-torn land. Black-Ops: Heroes of Afghanistan is by the best-selling author of many Spec Ops war stories. These include the popular SEAL Team Bravo titles, the Raider series, as well as the Echo Six and Devil's Guard series.

I'm SO Torn - A Great Book But Didn't Hold My Interest In The Middle

I really wanted to like this book. It is right up my alley for the occasional espionage thriller. I'm a huge Vince Flynn and Dalton Fury fan.

The opening chapters were amazing, but the middle got away from me-I kept backing the book up and finally just let it play through. However the ending was fantastic.

I'm not sure if that is a very helpful review, but the publisher summary gives a thorough overview and because of my listening experience, I don't think that I can add anything to it.

The narration was by Charles Lawrence. There are some narrators for this type of book who are just the right fit, George Guidall comes to mind. It is really hard for me to accept a new narrator but Charles Lawrence is up to the task. In fact, it was his performance that kept me listening.

Notes: violence, sometimes very graphic

Simple Story

This is not a sophisticated, deep or complex story - it is simple and mostly predictable. The characters are black and white (good guy vs bad guy). The story moves along at a steady pace, there is action but it isn't intense and there isn't a great deal of text devoted to describing the action but enough to get the picture. Basically everything from character development, action, story line and narration were adequate.
