Disillusioned after a mission in Ukraine goes tragically wrong, military contractor Tom Locke is on the run from Apollo Outcomes, a private military corporation run by the treacherous Brad Winters. While working undercover with his surviving team members on the frontlines of ISIS-infected Iraq, they are approached by a Saudi middleman who offers good money to find the missing son of a high-ranking government official.
What Locke doesn't know is that the missing young prince may have been carrying the result of a secret agreement made with the Pakistanis in the 1960s and that his father may or may not be trying to topple the Saudi government. As he pushes deeper into ISIS territory, Locke must figure out both the on-the-ground battle lines and the larger Deep State war he has stumbled into yet again.
Who is the mysterious Saudi who hired Locke's team? Is the prince's disappearance personal or political? And how many sides are being played against each other in a Middle East torn apart by overlapping and contradictory alliances? To complete the mission and keep his men safe, the battle-hardened Locke must use every skill he has to defeat a fanatical enemy on the ground - while a duplicitous adversary much closer to home waits for his chance to strike....

A great book that fits well in the modern mercenary genre.
The characters are pretty well developed, the action is convincing and the story interesting.
The plot kind of fizzles at the end, but it's worth finishing and the plot moves along nicely.
The use of 2 narrators is an odd choice and the reader who voices the main merc is clearly from the Christian Bale Batman school of voice acting--very gravelly and it gets a little old.
Recommended if you like Vince Flynn, Tom Clancy, Mark Greany style books.

a solid story of mercs with an ott reading
This second imstallment in the series builds upon the first, adding levels of intrigue and suspence. unfortunately, the gritty narration proved to be a little over the top at times, milling any subtly in the prose.
