In the aftermath of great floods, a doctor on a relief mission in Northeastern Pakistan discovers the remains of a collapsed bridge that reminds him of a bridge near his childhood home in Ohio. He snaps a cellphone picture and sends it to his sister just before his entire team is slaughtered. His sister is Beth Ledford, a Coast Guard sniper who suspects that the answer to the mystery of her brother's death is in that cellphone picture. No one believes her until she finds Swanson and the secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident.
When Kyle takes Beth into Pakistan to investigate, they find the true secret behind the mass murder - what may be the last, best hope of victory by al-Qaeda and the Taliban over allied forces. Now the two snipers have their sights set on one man, an American diplomat who has become the biggest obstacle to victory in the war on terror. The only question is: Which of them gets to pull the trigger?

I think this is my favorite series - and I have listened to many (Flynn, Child, Eisler, Thor, Fury, Baldacci, Battles, Don Mann, Brad Taylor ..). There is good character development and good descriptions of places and events. The story is well paced with plenty of action but not over the top. While events are sometimes stretching reality; events aren't that unrealistic that they are almost be believable. But what really sets this series apart from the others are the little touches (Kyle hugging and swinging Lady Pat and calling her mom), the humanity and clear yet subtle reverence/respect for the people in the military, especially the marines (talking to the young privates when he was on the range, or attending the retirement party and saluting the Arizona). These touches bring more depth to Kyle but also brings life to the brotherhood in the military. And while Kyle is the clear hero, he is a sensible hero tapping resources rather than being a complete super hero and going it alone - he is clearly part of a team - a military team. This novel in particular is a great ride, a real page turner and leaves you wanting more stories of Gunnery Sargent Kyle Swanson. The narrator Luck Daniels does a great job.

I have a map...but
The violence continues, Double O s back, and introducing a new fem-fetal coast guard sniper...if you like smack talking women characters, people who aren't afraid to pull the trigger, and disobey orders....you have found a series of interest...if this does not interest you you'll be happier if you move on and save the credit
