Ukraine. A simmering cauldron of old hatreds between Russia and the West. Separatist rebels have an unlimited supply of guns, and the land is ripped apart by rival factions fighting for supremacy. This is a land where brother kills brother, and women can only watch and weep while a Russian invasion threatens.
On the other side of the Atlantic, a charitable foundation in New York City, established by Alexander Dragan, a mysterious Ukrainian philanthropist. A man who harbors a bitter longing for vengeance. Dragan wants revenge for his family, murdered by two Russians during the uprising in Crimea. The killers have gone unpunished, and now he wants them dead. He recruits troubled former SEAL John Raider, bedeviled by legal troubles, to work for him. The mission - to lead a team of former Special Forces operators into the country and take out the two killers. In return, Dragan will make Raider's problems go away.
Outnumbered and outgunned, the team fights desperately to survive against overwhelming odds inside the chaotic country. Yet the operation hits a further complication. Raider discovers a devastating secret, a plan to plunge Europe into a new and bloody war. The clock is already ticking, counting down to zero hour. The only chance to stop it is to put their lives on the line in a desperate life or death gamble.

Action, action and more action!
Interesting, intense and entertaining story.
Suspense, action, mystery, snipers, prison break, conspiracy, lies, revenge, multiple rescues and more action. These are just some of things that make this a really good story.
Took me a bit to get into the story, but once it got going it was pretty intense. Literally non stop action. The story is constantly moving forward at a fast pace. Getting into Crimea is a whole lot easier than getting out. Things never go exactly as planned. Especially when you don't have all the facts. With things going down hill fast Raider and company finally catch a couple of breaks thanks to a split decision by Raider to free a another prisoner being held in the same prison as their friend.
Story does have flashbacks to past events, which if your not paying attention to the dates can be confusing.
The story takes place during the same time period Putin is putting his plans into action to regain the region of Crimea in the Ukraine. So there are dual story's going on at the same time and how they interconnect with each other.
This is the first time I have "read/listened" an Eric Meyer book. I really enjoyed this one. I'm sure I'll be reading more of his books in the future.
Neal Arango did a pretty good job with the narration. This is the first time I have listened to book narrated by him. Different character voices, easy to follow who's speaking. Pleasant voice. Nice pace. All around good job.

All the action made this book the most enjoyable. It wasnt just a few action scenes with a lot of filler in between them.
Yes, the plot was entertaining due to the fact there weren't too many dull moments and you couldnt really see where it was headed next.
My favorite was at the castle. Not only was it a rescue mission for a friend, but freeing other hostages had a impact later in the book.
The torturing of the hostages.
