Sniper Elite: One Way Trip: A Novel

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.

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.

    "Action, action, action"

    After a chapter or two, I realized I am really an action junkie. I had just finished a couple of books with little to no action before this book ... As soon as this started, I got a big smile on my face and really got into the book. I can't say I enjoy all of the details regarding each gun, shell, etc., but I know those who know what they mean probably do.

    This is a fun and exciting book ... enjoy

    "Too much American macho BS"

    I found the amount of macho American BS to be too alienating for me. I guess I'm just allergic to it.

    "Great book"

    5 stars. Just as good as (if not better than) any fiction Special Forces book out there.

    I like the hero, I like his attitude and I'm enjoying the books. I especially like it when the bad guys get what they deserve.

    "My new favorite series"

    The stories in this series are well told, and overall, reasonably believable. Good dialog, and paired with some new and different story angles. Check this series out.

    Story
    "Holy Crap! Hold on to your seats."
    If you could sum up Sniper Elite: One Way Trip in three words, what would they be?

    Breath taking action


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

    Yes, the detail and precision explanation of the action was riveting.


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

    No, this is my first.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me run the gamut of emotions. I cried one moment and was completely horrified the next. I did laugh out loud a few times.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like military or action novels, I think you will like this. If you've always dreamed of being a sniper, loner or someone with no fear it's a good book.

    Story
    "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.
