Publisher's Summary

Afghanistan veteran Jim Chapel has been enlisted in a new war. This time it's in his own backyard...and even more deadly.
A small band of fugitives escapes from a secret upstate New York military facility, leaving a trail of bodies in its wake. Each fugitive has a target - an innocent civilian - and will not stop until that target has been eliminated.
Wounded Special Forces veteran Jim Chapel has been stuck behind a desk rather than out in the field, but medical technology has finally caught up with his ambitions. Coupled with his unstoppable determination, it will take him back to where he thrives: the thick of the action.
Drafted into a new war, this time in our homeland, Chapel is tasked with hunting a group of escapees from a top-secret military compound - all extremely deadly, genetically modified killers - and unraveling the mystery behind their existence. Aided by an enigmatic woman named Angel and a courageous, beautiful veterinarian, Chapel begins a cross-country hunt to stop the murders. But are the killers really rogues? Or are they part of a sinister conspiracy that reaches into the highest levels?

Lord of the Flies Mixed with vampires+ Gov Corupt

Another good story by David Wellington, as I mentioned in headline he took a lot of different story lines put them in a blender and out comes a better than average story.
I enjoy the variety of characters, you are comfortable with his mainstay charactersJim Chapel and his on again,off again girlfriend...and his villains are unique fron saddest to super human.
The reader turned another great job

I think I like Captain Jim Chapel

He is sorta Joe Ledgerish. He's believable as a character & still likable. I'll read book 2. I liked his sidekick Julia and Angel & even the flight attendant! All strong women. What a smart author.
