Where does Tier One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Gave this a try after reading the feedback here and was pretty happy with it. I am a spy/ mil fiction fan and have read tons in this genre going back to Ambler and Deighton. This is more grunt and less intrigue but still entertaining and well told and narrated. Compared to Rapp and Wells books, this needs a bit more editing and character dev. It most reminds me of the Dewey Andreas books but those are better I think. I care more about the characters mentioned above. Bit deeper maybe, not sure. Good first try and I would buy another.

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.

this story was just plain silly massive plot holes, lots of inappropriate swearing only listen to it if you've got nothing else to do with your life.
Full of punch, fight and teeth-gritting paranoia. Definitely one of the best thrillers, I have ever listened to.
