From former Delta Force commander and New York Times bestselling author of Kill Bin Laden comes the first novel in an explosive new series
After September 11, 2001, Delta Force troop commander Dalton Fury was given the secret mission to hunt down and kill the most wanted man in the world, the details of which were recounted in his extraordinary New York Times best-seller Kill Bin Laden. Now, Fury draws upon his hard-won combat experience - and his gift for true-to-life storytelling - to offer a brand-new series of thrillers that are as close to reality as readers can get.
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.
A shadowy group of former colleagues has asked Raynor to return, alone, to Pakistan’s badlands. His assignment seems clear: find his missing men and bring them home. What Raynor never expected was to uncover a sinister al Qaeda plot to capture a Black Site - a secret U.S. prison - and destabilize the region. Meanwhile, a ruthless, unknown enemy is on his trail… and he will stop at nothing to make sure that Raynor’s mission is not accomplished. An intense, gritty work of edge-of-your-seat suspense, Black Site is the first of what promises to be one of the most exciting fiction series of the new millennium.

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.
Say something about yourself!
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.
I haven't read the print version so it wouldn't be fair to compare. However, I will say that if the print version is as awesome as the audible, it must be an excellent read.
Kolt of course!! I have the honor of working with SOF members and Kolt is an excellent depiction of these very special individuals.
Kolt. The Narrator really brings the book to life with each character given a distinctive persona. Well done!!
A True Eye Opener for the Uninformed, Untested and Unrealistic Thinkers!
Dalton Fury is definitely right up there with Mark Greaney, David Baldacci, James Patterson and so many more extraordinary authors. His book literally has you gripping the sides of your seat the entire time!! The action and suspense is nearly heart stopping and I found it extremely difficult to push the pause button when I had to force myself to focus on work!! Yes, It is THAT good! I won't fill in any details because they need to be experienced by the listener. You will not be disappointed...I promise!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in black ops and good stories. The story line is very well put together, with great character development. The author has a great way of putting right in the action and cheering on some people while hating others. This is a great book and could be a blockbuster movie tomorrow.
***SPOILER*** As you are reading, you know that Raynor is going to come back to his senses and become the elite fighter he once was. But the story line was still unexpected and had me cheering Raynor on as he took everything to a new level.
No, I have not, but Ari did an excellent job of putting the listener in the moment.
Black Site is definitely one of the most exciting and action packed books I've listened to in ages. The story is very well thought out and moves forward relentlessly.
I can't really say without spoiling anything, but let's just say that a few sentries had a very bad day.
When Racer is infiltrating a Taliban compound when he first get's back in to Pakistan was very, very memorable. That's all I can really say.
There were plenty of moments that shocked me, made me a bit queasy or nervous, and a number of great fist-pumping "Heck yea!" moments. There isn't a whole lot of emotional depth in the book, but what is there is actually extremely well done. His description of a rather hellish moment of PTSD hit me extremely hard and make me empathize heavily with the main character.
I was very worried that this book would have many, many moments of jingoism and support for some of the horrible things we've done in the "War On Terror", but I was wrong. When there was a hint of anything political I think it was dealt with tact and from the perspective of a man with his boots firmly on the ground. The do mention torture, and there is a scene that contains some in the background, but it is dealt with enough disgust that I didn't hate it. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a love of military action thrillers.
Mom, wife and caregiver. Variety in my music and book libraries. I love a good romance or mystery. In order to be worth my time and money there needs to be some good characters, a good plot and a length to make it worth my money. I will follow authors, series or even readers.
Along the lines of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series - the main character is willing to break the rules to do what will best serve his country and take care of his friends
Fast paced, high intensity, heart pounding excitement! I love a good story about people in the military; stories of honor, courage and commitment. Dalton Fury’s Black Site definitely is that. The author is detailed in his descriptions of characters and situations. Dalton’s background in the military and Special Forces is evident as you read through his novel and can picture the decisions that are running through the mind of his leading man.
The reader is a good one for this – he has the strong steady voice to carry both the intensity of this story and the strength of character of Kolt Rainer. The author Dalton Fury is former Delta Force troop commander who lead the search for Bin Laden and author of Kill Bin Laden.
The characters and intensity of the volatile world of the Middle East keep your heart pounding as the minutes pass in this novel. Much like Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series – the reader becomes invested in the hero, holding your breath until you discover how the story unfolds. I could easily imagine following Colt for years as I have many other series based in the Special Forces, Black Ops, and CIA saving the world genre. I would recommend anyone who likes a strong military hero, flaws and all, to pick up this book and give it a read.
