The book starts with a series of seemingly unrelated chapters: An American teenage girl is brutally murdered in Germany; A sniper practices his craft on the border between Bosnia and Croatia, leaving handless corpses tied to crosses; A group of Delta Force commandos work with Navy SEALS to re-take an oil rig from suspected terrorists. Bob Mayer soon ties everything together in a first rate read.
Major Thorpe, Delta Force operator, thought he had retired. An Army mix up had him needing more time in order to qualify for his pension. He is re-activated from the reserves and sent to Fort Bragg to fulfill his active Duty requirements. Thorpe is reunited with his old friend Master Sergeant Dublowski. Dublowski tells Thorpe that his daughter Terri has been missing for several months and the Army has determined she is a runaway. Thing is, the Master Sergeant doesn't believe it. He asks Thorpe to look into for him.
And so begins the adventure to locate Terri Dublowski. Along the way, they uncover a terrorist plot to release VZ, a deadly nerve gas that could potentially kill thousands. There are also people who know more than they let on mixed in with some mysterious deaths. Add in some shady CIA operatives in a conspiracy to further their own careers and you have a very exciting story.
This is more a detective story than a Delta Force action thriller. It does contain a fair amount of action, but most of the book is determining the whos, whats and wheres involved. For me, it had just the right mix. I like a good mystery as well as an action adventure. If that fits your style, then I think you will like this book also.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Someone who is a little more into creepy, abusive sex.
What was most disappointing about Bob Mayer’s story?
It was grim and gruesome. It lacked any sense of fun, which I expect as least some of in a thriller.
Any additional comments?
Grim, gruesome, too much talk and description and not enough plot and forward motion, unpleasant, not fun, and the author comes across as a little creepy.
