Publisher's Summary

An American general is captured in the Middle East. His captors threaten to behead him within days. But moments before he is rendered unconscious during the attack, the general realizes that his unseen captors are American. Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson, a top-level Marine sniper, receives top-secret orders to rescue the general. But upon landing in the Iraqi desert, his men come under ferocious attack, and Swanson is the only one left alive. How did the enemy know details of a mission known only to a few top government officials?
Swanson soon realizes he is fighting a particularly ruthless and dangerous enemy: American mercenaries working with the White House. They're part of a clandestine conspiracy whose agenda is nothing less than total control of the American military.
Full of the kind of action that author Jack Coughlin lived during his career as a Marine sniper, Kill Zone marks the debut of an extraordinary writing team.


What the Critics Say

"Coughlin, ably assisted by coauthor Davis, tells a tight, suspenseful story, and Kyle's philosophical arc, from cool, detached professional to disillusioned, embittered loner, is well developed, with a substantial emotional payoff at the end. Here's hoping this is the first of many Swanson novels." (Booklist)

Hats off Gunny

This book was filled with real examples of warfare and some old sayings I heard from Gunny Coughlin a few times during my deployments to Iraq with 3/4. I enjoyed this second book as much as I did the first, probably more so than most of the civilians who read it because I understand the language being spoken by the Marines. I laughed out loud many times during the read. Damn fine book.

Contrived transparency

I will start off by saying, if you have a few hours for a good exciting read… Buy it! That said, having read these authors other work I am amazed at the magnitude of transparency between the real Jack Coughlin (Mastery Gunny SGT/ Marine Scout Sniper ) and the main heroin. At some points you can’t help but shake your head and sigh, this book is like a fanciful overlay for Jack Coughlin’s book “Shooter” a historical account of his experiences in Iraq. If you are looking for a book about war, snipers, marines, ext I would highly recommend Shooter the authors other book however, this book is excellent!
