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?

Pretty good for fans of John Wells and Mitch Rapp

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 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.

Same Skill Set - New Rules!

This is a thoroughly intriguing novel. Not just your usual Navy Seals or CIA tale. It's a proper amalgam of the two, with FBI/HRT elements thrown in.

If you enjoy any element of this kind of adventure, you will certainly enjoy this. I discovered it as part of my Kindle Unlimited subscription and shall seek out the other 3 books in this 4 book series.
