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.

Publisher's Summary

From the coauthor of the number-one New York Times best-selling American Sniper, this "inspired by true events" thriller follows one of America’s most lethal snipers as he leads the rescue of a downed female Special Ops pilot.

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.

In direct defiance of the President’s orders, Navy SEAL sniper Gil Shannon launches an audacious mission with the support of elite soldiers and an enigmatic government figure, to infiltrate the tribal faction holding the captured pilot. A pulse-pounding battle ensues, pitching the entire force of the Taliban against the fearless and heroic American sniper. Packed with blistering action and real-life combat scenes, Sniper Elite: One Way Trip will pin you to the edge of your seat until the very last sentence.

    "Outstanding Book"

    Wow. Great book. Love the characters, good plot, good story, well told, good pace and well read. Only negative is the graphic detail and some of the language but I don’t doubt for a minute that the graphic detail or language aren’t authentic’ and I accept it. The politics is all too real too. Can’t wait for more books.

    "excellent thriller!"
    What made the experience of listening to Sniper Elite: One Way Trip the most enjoyable?

    really good satisfying story from start to finish, you can visualize this being made into a film with all the locations and characters different settings, couldnt stop listening once i was in the middle of the book


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

    yes, very much, I've listened to a few of the similar genre but i found this story to be really compelling, lots of suspense in the afghani villages and wondering how Gil would get out of there alive


    Have you listened to any of Brian Hutchison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Brian Hutchison did a great job of bringing these characters to life, there are so many, from all the navy seals, the hero, Gil, the guys in the speacial ops, the CIA, all of the afghani characters too. REally good narration and creating characters in the book.


    Who was the most memorable character of Sniper Elite: One Way Trip and why?

    Gil, as the hero was great, i also liked his translator, who comes across as a really good guy who is torn between helping Gil and his family in one of the Villages they are infiltrating. Also like Badeera the woman who was looking after Sandra when she is injured before they try rescuing her.


    Any additional comments?

    Really solid all the way around, i look forward to more of these mckewen/ Kolonair books, with the same narrator, its a home run for this genre.

    "Excellent Listen"

    Definitely a must listen . . Not a warm over. Great character development, well paced and suspenseful. The ending might suggest a sequel . .if so will buy it.

    "Well read and engaging."

    The story kept my attention and it was fairly technically accurate to the equipment, kit and weapons capabilities. This goes a long way toward not being a distraction. The story is very far-fetched but it's a wild Hollywood style ride. It's worth the read.

    "I loved it!"

    kept me listening, kept me laughing. Great story. I am going to look for most from the same author. the only time I was questioning the story was one bad reference to an M-134 being a 20 mm versus a 7.62mm
