    Meet Kolt Raynor. A Delta Force operator and one-time American hero, he is still trying to make sense of his life - and duty - after a secret mission gone bad. Three years ago, in the mountains of Pakistan, Raynor made a split-second decision to disobey orders - one that got some of his teammates killed and the rest captured. Now he’s been given a second chance to do right by his country, his men, and himself. But Raynor’s shot at redemption comes at a price.

    Story

    I was in an Army airborne unit in Afghanistan stationed right next to the border, and although not a special operator, I could relate with a lot of what Kolt was experiencing, and it just brought be back in vivid detail! I was able to visualize almost everything! I especially like Dalton's writing because, unlike Vince Flynn, the language is realistic and there are really no lewd language or sexual references, which is just wholly unnecessary to create a great story. I find that all too often with Vince Flynn's content.

    I didn't expect a story with a lot of twists and turns or a complex plot, but Dalton delivered! I got the Audible audiobook and there is an interview with Dalton at the end which I appreciated.

    I seriously can't wait for the next one to get released!! Highly recommended!

    Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was thought of as a terrorists worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world . . . and then tragedy struck.

    Story

    The performance was excellent! The storyline was excellent. The language, metaphors, and imagery were very filthy quite often. Although this may be the reality, it was somewhat sickening. Overall, I recommend the book if you have the mind to wade through the feces of language and content.

    Barely into his 20s and already a highly decorated military hero, Army Special Forces veteran Blake Kershaw is now going to college, studying while recuperating from wounds received in Afghanistan, and planning to reenter the army as an officer after graduation. But life tosses Blake a curve when his country approaches him about using his special skills to avert a terrorist plot to detonate a nuclear device in a major eastern US city.

    Story

    This man is a believer in Jesus Christ, and has lived most of what he writes about. The story has similarities to Vince Flynn's Memorial Day, which was also great. Though this story is still definitely unique. I really like that Boykin weaves faith in Jesus Christ into the story.

    I'm former Army in Afghanistan and Iraq, so I resonated with a lot of components of this story.

    The narrator at first was reading too fast and with a staccato rhythm, but I sort of adapted to it--should have been a bit slower throughout. The narrator was excellent in using realistic voices for all the different characters, and he does an spectacular job of this.

    The chapter breaks and development order were excellent. I really was impressed with how this was done.

    Story

    I had to double check if the book was narrated by Timothy himself because the narrator really seemed to capture what I assumed the author was thinking. Most professional narrators don't capture the emotion and emphasis as author-narrators do. Once again, the narration is superior.

    Frankly, I'm only about 30 min into the audiobook, but the story and content has already captured my attention, and thought process to some degree.

    This best seller tells of the young Dutch factory worker's incredible efforts to transport Bibles across closed borders - and the miraculous ways in which God provided for him every step of the way. Brother Andrew's story remains as inspiring today as it was 35 years ago, and with this new release, it will motivate a whole new generation to risk everything to follow God's call.

    This book was excellent! I listened to the whole thing in about 4 days. It's definitely a "page turner". I thought the narrator did a great job--when the original author does not narrate it is never perfect, but Simon Vance did a great job.
