Publisher's Summary

Colonel Joe Bishop made a promise, and he's going to keep it: taking the captured alien starship Flying Dutchman back out. He doesn't agree when the UN decides to send almost 70 elite Special Operations troops, hotshot pilots, and scientists with him; the mission is a fool's errand he doesn't expect to ever return from. At least this time, the Earth is safe, right?
Not so much.

Best Book Of 2017 So Far!

My wife and I have waited for this second book in the series since the moment we finished the first book! We stayed up past 3AM (Eastern Time) on the day it was released, waiting for it to hit our Audible Cloud Library after Pre-Ordering it ("Refresh Library" DANG IT! "Refresh Library", DANG IT! "Refresh Library", WHOOO HOOOO!!!!) . After Downloading it to iPhone, we listened to it pretty much STRAIGHT THROUGH!

It's well written, AND Hilarious.. In places it's SO funny, and we laughed SO hard, that we had to take a short break to keep the funny parts fresh... you can only laugh so much before "the Funny" wears off ;)

I liked seeing the Main Character Subtly Mature as the new book went along, and he was forced to rise to the challenge of actually BEING in Command, and thinking/planning ahead, instead of just "Winging it and getting Lucky".

You probably won't regret dropping a credit on it!

- Trip Williams "Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!"

Humorous, irreverent, AND a great plot. Love it!!!

What did you love best about SpecOps?

The same thing I liked about the first book in the series - Skippy's sense of humor.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Skippy, you monkeys!

Have you listened to any of R.C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

RC Bray's performance, and Craig Alanson's writing, are both top notch.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, because I just DID listen to it in one sitting. From 8am this morning until just now :)

Any additional comments?

The author is gifted at crafting a great sci fi with a wicked sense of humor. This is the best series I've found in a long time. I'm dying for Paradise (book 3) in Audible format.
