    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    A well written inside look at the operators, their preparations, and their mission to kill Osama Bin Laden. No political agenda, unlike The Finish, by Mark Bowden.

    Lt. Col. Michael Parson couldn’t be happier about his new assignment on a Kyrgyzstan air base. But after taking what he expected to be an easy job, a drug-laden C-27 crashes on the runway - drawing Parson into a deadly game of intrigue that could end in an international conflagration.

    Just finished "The Warriors" and really enjoyed it. The Story went somewhere I didn't expect, and included some resent history that is often forgotten. Gives a few perspectives on some of the turmoil that took place in the Balkans during the 1990s. Scott Brick does a great job like always. Hope there are more books in store for us.

    The President of the United States can’t decide how to respond to a classified video showing the Taliban’s brutal treatment of their captive - a female helicopter pilot of the Army’s elite Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Afraid that a botched rescue will further destabilize foreign policy and end his presidency, the Commander-in-Chief falters. But when the Special Ops community learns that one of their own is being tortured and will almost certainly be killed, no executive order will stop them from attempting a rescue mission.

    Story

    I listen to most fiction and non-fiction books about military operations & memoirs of operators. It seems like this genre has had a flood of new books coming into it, and a lot of them sub-par, almost like wanting to push out as many books as they can, into a market that is growing in popularity, just to make some money. This book is well thought out, and very accurate as far as the range of personalities in a single team. I enjoyed it, and will listen to other books by Scott McEwen. The narrator does a great job, and is easy to listen to.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    I downloaded the preview chapter when audible was giving us the first 2 chapters, after I listened to them, I pre-ordered "Suspect." This is absolutly a great story!!! loved it! Different kind of story than the normal Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series, but great in it's own right!

    Former disgraced Delta Force commander Kolt "Racer" Raynor has earned his way back into The Unit after redeeming himself during an explosive operation at a black site in Pakistan. But he is about to face his deadliest challenge yet. The most wanted man in the world, American al Qaeda commander Daoud al Amriki, and his handpicked team of terrorist operatives, have acquired stores of Russian-built, shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAM's) from ex-Libyan spies in Cairo.

    Story

    This book picks up after the events in "Black Site" and quickly catches your attention. Well thought storyline that has depth to it, that will keep you listening. Smooth flowing, not rushed, but not bogging down either, the tempo of the book was good! Continued character development, makes Kolt Raynor more personable, and relatable.

    I felt like this book was well thought about and the author took his time creating the plot and storyline. It wasn't rushed out, lacking in details and depth like some books in a new series that is popular.

    From Mark Bowden, internationally best-selling and acclaimed author of Black Hawk Down and the preeminent chronicler of the actions of our military and special forces writing today, comes an intensely gripping account of the hunt for and elimination of Osama bin Laden. With unprecedented access to key sources and his great gift for storytelling, Bowden takes us inside the rooms where decisions were made and on the ground where the action unfolded.

    Story

    I downloaded this book, because it said, if you liked No Easy Day, then you'll like The Finish, or something like that. But I didn't find the two books alike at all. No Easy Day focused on the operators, the preparations, and the mission. The Finish seemed like it had more of a political agenda, and focused more on the politicians....just in time for the elections too.

    When she was unjustly fired from a clandestine government laboratory, microbiologist Hallie Leland swore she would never look back. But she can’t ignore an urgent summons from the White House to reenter the realm of cutting-edge science and dangerous secrets. "Potentially the worst threat since Pearl Harbor” is how the president describes a mysterious epidemic killing American soldiers in Afghanistan - and now poised for outbreak in the States and beyond.

    It's too bad that this is James M. Tabor's debut novel. After I listened to this book, I was hoping to find more books by this author, but there are none yet. Will definitely look forward to future books by James M. Tabor.

    There was a lot of things in this book that I had little knowledge of, but he does a good job, at making the reader/listener understand the science, and technologies.

    If you like me, think that the narrator plays an important roll, in the the portrayal of the novel, Paul Michael does a great job in The Deep Zone!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely would, but you have gotta listen to, "The Grey Man" first.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Fast non-stop, with twists and turns around every page. Greaney has come up with plots that are extremely original.
