An American general is captured by Islamic extremists in the Middle East. They threaten to behead him within days. One strange fact: Moments before he is rendered unconscious during the attack, the general notices that his unseen captors speak American English. What's going on?
Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson, a top level marine sniper, is vacationing on a boat in the Mediterranean when he receives orders to mount a top-secret mission to rescue the general. But as he and his men prepare to land in the Iraqi desert, they immediately come under ferocious attack, and Swanson is the only man left alive. How did the enemy know details of a mission known only to a few top government officials?
Swanson takes off across the desert alone to find the captured general and realizes he is fighting a particularly ruthless and dangerous enemy: American mercenaries working for a very high-level group of American officials with ties to the White House itself, part of a clandestine conspiracy whose hidden agenda is nothing less than total control of the American military. Their sworn enemy is the captured general whose fate now rests in Sniper Swanson's hands.
Full of the kind of action author Jack Coughlin lived during his career as a marine sniper, Kill Zone marks the debut of an extraordinary writing team.

I love a book that starts out with a bang
- AudioBook Reviewer "All of my reviews are on my blog audiobookreviewer dot com"
Too painful to listen to
Firstly, if the narrator intends to continue trying to mimic regional accents, he needs a professional coach - There is a Senator who would make Boss Hogg wince, a bazzillionaire David Niven wanna-be, and his Irish sidekick whom I expected at any moment to say "This brandy is magically delicious"...
Secondly, the characters and dialogue were like something out of a low grade made-for-TV movie... A hit man named "Big Lenny" - Seriously? Every character in the plot, including the Senator, is either current or former elite combat types - Even if the author didn't tell you this in each character's bio, you could tell it by their braggadocious dialogue and their eager willingness to mix it up with random toughs who get in their way - Which we all know is the way all special ops guys act.... Right?
The plot (what I heard if it) was pretty predictable but I didn't slight the author for that if he could fill it in with good characters and dialogue - he didn't... After about an hour, my wife threatened to leave the room if I didn't shut it off - I told her that "I" would leave the room if I didn't shut it off... So I did...
For all those who liked the book, I wish you joy... For those who have NOT yet bought this book and you're expecting something of the same caliber as Vince Flynn or Daniel Silva, save your credits... I rarely return books I get from Audible and even more rarely write a negative review, but this one made the list...
