Ive listened or read too many thrillers featuring great characters with almost super human abilities. I liked them all, but it seems to me Mitch Rapp, Jack Reacher, the Grey Man, etcetera have been too good to believe. So I purchased Black Site with some prejudice.
What led me to this book was the author's recent background as Delta member himself. It was a wise decision.
The hero here is a decorated, but disgraced combat veteran who becomes a drunk after he leads his team into an ambush. He's called back into action because he is expendable. What follows is a tough and gritty adventure that leads to his own redemption. It is an extremely accurate tale of espionage and warfare.
Loved this book! The fact that it's written by someone with experience in the military, as opposed to someone who wishes they had experience in the military makes a difference.
This a great book, our hero is no superman just a man on a mission. The book develops his character then brings in the mission. I look forward to reading the next book.
The author has real world experience and does a great job of making the fictional character in this book believable.
His series about Colt Racer are realistic and always exciting. I can't wait for his next audio book. I prefer listening to the Delta Force stories over most of the other SF military stories. Although. I wish Thom Shea would tell his story of Unbreakable. I read that one and would listen to it several times.
Keep up the great work Dalton. A friend of mine has fought or trained with you.
What a ride! Dalton Fury's background as a former Delta operator gives this book a serious edge. His depiction of Kolt "Racer" Raynor is incredibly interesting. Kolt isn't a textbook hero. He's far from perfect. In fact, he's downright haunted by some of the decisions he's made in combat. And yet, when given the chance to make amends, Kolt pushes past his inner demons and decides to do anything in his power, even if it means sacrificing himself, to save honor his fallen mates and save those who may still be alive. This action packed adventure will keep you on the edge of your seat. I can't wait to see where Kolt will go next!
Dalton Fury is an American Hero! His detail of the Delta Force missions is impeccable. It may be just me but the story never really got off the run way. The beginning was excellent but from that point forward it slowly took a nose dive. Ari Fliakos did not help either. His monotone dialogue left much to be desired. Not sure if I will give Dalton another shot but you never know.
I love books!
First time author, Dalton Fury. You might think that a book written by an ex-special ops soldier would have it down in regards to how special ops teams work. You would think right. It felt like there was a lot of firsthand knowledge of processes, weapons, lingo, environment, etc. It was clearly a fictional setting but you had the feeling that it wasn't too far from how it would actually happen. There was a lot of shooting, blowing up, dead on both sides, intense action just like you'd expect. Theere is nothing other than special ops action in this book.
The story had a lot of action but it had too many details that I personally didn't enjoy, I found boring.
hopefully not, but I will be more careful with my choice in the future
I can't even say since i didn't manage to finish
Though never in the military made me feel like I was there. needs a better actor to read but good overall
This book moves around a lot at first but you get the hint then gets lined up well. Like watching a stallone film great action doesn't need all the twists
the main character
Tucked away in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico.
I've read several terrorist plots here lately, and they are all starting to sound the same. This one did not stand out. It was fast paced, lots of body count, but formula.
Not a waste of a credit, but not something I'd want to read again.
