This is the first time I have listened to an A.J. Tata book. But if you love Flynn, Thor, Silva, Berenson, Coes, you will love "Foreign & Domestic". The book was impossible to put down until I read the Acknowledgments -- Without giving any "spoilers", Jake Mahegan and his Delta Force team are on a special assignment to locate the "American Taliban" in Afghanistan. The mission goes horribly wrong and Jake's best friend is killed and the target escapes. Jake comes back to the U.S. where he is targeted for the unlawful killing of a POW by an ambitious three-star general. Jake is living off of the grid in coastal NC and meets a pretty woman who is a part-time deputy, part time historian and researcher about the areas American Indian and early settler history. Jake is located by the Feds and the book takes off from there. He cannot tell who is friend and who is the enemy. The plot involves stolen highly secret weapon technology, "ghost" prisoners, and civil war gold. I can't recommend this book highly enough. I am looking forward to listening to his other books.
Jonathan Davis was very skilled with the delivery of the story.

Although I listen to some of them the military sub-genre of mystery/thrillers is far from my favorite because they often sacrifice strong plots for more contrived action. Foreign and Domestic does not have excessive contrived action, but its plot could be stronger. It is a worthwhile mystery/thriller but is not outstanding in any way. except for Jonathan Davis' narration.
