Publisher's Summary

The world's most elite counter-terrorist operators....
A cyber-security guru suddenly getting shot at and blown up rather more than usual....
And nuclear-armed terrorists rolling with impunity through a lawless and brutal virtual world....
The year is now. Islamist terrorists hack into America's most sensitive defense networks, launch chemical weapons attacks on Western cities, and stage a raid on vulnerable nuclear weapons storage facilities in Pakistan. They are using a massively multiplayer online video game (or "virtual world") as a platform for planning and rehearsing their attacks - forcing a squad of supremely elite Delta Force operators (reinforced by an info-security expert from the Department of Homeland Security) to go inside the game to fight them.
But the fight only begins there. Get ready for breath-stealing action in every known battle space - clockwork urban safehouse takedowns, combat helicopter assaults, brutal ambushes in the trackless mountains, waterborne SEAL team ops, precision close-quarters battle sequences, and CheyTac Intervention sniper rifle systems that can kill you from a mile and a half away.
These weapons, tactics, tech, and 21st-century warriors will be unlike anything you've ever heard of before.

Once the action started it was pedal to the metal

Mike Brown is sitting at a blood splattered computer, around him are the bodies of the men who came to the house with him. Mike tracks hackers for the government but he has never been in a gunfight before. The dead were cops, the armed terrorist hackers got away. Now the higher ups have drafted him into a CAG unit (Combat Applications Group(Delta)). He has no idea what he is getting into but he will soon find out.

This is one of the best action/hi-tech books I have listened to in a long time. The introduction to the Delta Force unit was misleading. Mike soon discovered that they were not just muscled warriors but highly intelligent, very dedicated, and trained to be the very best. Hopefully, with Mike’s computer skills they will find the terrorists and beat them at their own game, literally.

Once the action started it was pedal to the metal. Tracking the terrorists who practiced their thefts and murders on line and in real time. Using a cyber war game to perfect their crimes felt very realistic. The plot for this book was written so well it could already be happening. The technology was so realistically up to date that I looked for it online. Just to check it out, of course.
There is a lot more but I don’t want to spoil the best parts. It’s a bloody good read and I hope there will be more.

Kevin A. Harper is the narrator and he did a splendid job. His reading was clear and concise, very well done. I could listen to him for hours, in fact I did. He gave the action just the right touch and made the characters come to life. Production was perfect. No jumps, skips, or static. A perfect rendition.
The book cover was colorful and showed a warrior in action. Very well done in keeping with the book.

Narrator kills the story

What disappointed you about D-Boys?

I like the way Fuchs writes, and have listened to his other books. R.C. Bray narrates his other works, and I was amazed at his talent. I purchased this, eager to hear another action-packed, well-written story. I have tried 3 times and cannot get more than a few minutes into it without stopping it. The narrator makes all these supposed elite special operators sound so feminine that I expect they will try to hug the bad guys. I imagine the plot is great, but I will never know, because I cannot listen to it with that kind of distraction.


What didn’t you like about Kevin Arthur Harper’s performance?

In every audio book and every movie I have experienced, elite special operators exude an air of roughness, toughness, resolve, no-nonsense, get it done at all costs, confidence, masculinity, etc... In this book, some of them sound like shy teenage girls with an inferiority complex.
