Publisher's Summary

In a world violated by terror, the old lines have blurred. Meet the next generation of covert ops.
John Dempsey's life - as an elite Tier One Navy SEAL named Jack Kemper - is over. A devastating terrorist action catapults him from a world of moral certainty and decisive orders into the shadowy realm of espionage, where ambiguity is the only rule. His new mission: hunt down those responsible for the greatest tragedy in the history of the US Special Ops and bring them to justice.
But how does a man torn between duty and revenge walk the line and preserve his soul?
As Dempsey struggles with the games of spies, the case propels him across the globe in a desperate effort to prevent a new, horrifying attack on American soil.
Once, John Dempsey followed orders blindly. Now he sees behind the curtain, and the security of the civilized world rests on one question: Can a Tier One Navy SEAL adapt and become the world's most lethal spy?

This One's a Keeper!!!

This is an excellent and believable mystery, thriller, terrorist, espionage book. There is tons of action throughout the entire story right from the very beginning. The protagonist Jack Kemper is a SEAL on a mission when his entire team is ambushed and slaughtered, he escapes with his life but is badly burned. Jack then joins another alphabet team and becomes John Dempsey, our hero on a mission of revenge for the team he lost. The rest of the book deals with his training, information gathering and how, loss of comrades and ultimately the shocking discovery of who was behind the initial ambush and why. For me the who and why was a shocker that was totally unpredictable but believable.
One thing I did like about the way the authors wrote is in taking into consideration that not everyone has been in the military and doesn't always understand some of the specific meanings behind coded language the authors have Dempsey decoding in his head as the conversations take place.
Ray Porter did an excellent job narrating.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, I can only hope that a sequel is on the way! If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Thanks to Audible listener Shelley, who ...

...I follow, for recommending this outstanding espionage thriller. It is among the best espionage thrillers I have listened to this year. The topic is a relatively small team of highly trained specialists not operating as part of traditional espionage agencies seeking out at targeting terrorists hopefully before they act. The characters are very well developed. During an attack on the UN the suspense if intense. Ray Porter narrates to near perfection.

I continue to follow Shelleys reviews and she continues to offer to all that follow her very sound recommendations on action thrillers of all types.
