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.

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, 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
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.
One of the best listens ever. The pace is excellent, the characters believable and the prose is tight and evocative.
Most certainly. The protagonist is deeply flawed, yet heroic. I constantly had my earphone in, listening because I just couldn't stop playback.
Spot on and just the right amount of emotion to reveal the characters and their personalities.
Yes, it made me reflect on the individuals who do the kind of work men like Raynor (and Fury, in real life) do for our Republic. These men do things every day that seem impossibly difficult and dangerous. And at huge personal sacrifice.
Fury showed his chops for good narrative in Kill Bin Laden. It's great to see him apply this gift in his first of what I hope is a long line of novels. Keep up the good work and BEAT NAVY!
Full disclosure, I am easy to please. I like exiciting, mindless books with with great American heros winning. This book has all of those qualities. The book starts a little over the top and cliche with the disgraced drunk Delta operator but then gets pretty good. And the whole time you can't help think that the guy writing this was the real deal so this must be the real deal. Anyway if you are looking for a good book to help on the drive home this fits the bill.
Having been a Special Forces Operator, Dalton Fury blurs the line between fiction and non-fiction. The action never lets you down and the story keeps the heart pumping. Where some similar authors delve too deep into politics, Fury touches upon the complications between the politically correct way to fight a war and the way wars are actually fought, but then gets right back into the action.
After I was done, I felt like I had been reading about Colt, T.J. and the Delta Force team as long as I have Mitch Rapp. I feel like the characters are based upon people I know from my time spent in
Although he doesn't change the voices between characters as well as some of the best narrators, he does a great job relaying the urgency and attitude of the situation. Ari sounds like a
i'm not good at taglines.
Live near Yosemite National Park. Listen to Audible books while hiking.
Black Site is a great story of ingenuity and courage under fire. Highly detailed and accurate descriptions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Lots of dramatic tension. Looking forward to Dalton Fury???s next novel.
This a really good book and a nice introduction to a new character. It is nice to see a main character with flaws and vices and how he tries to battle them while still depended on to perform his tasks that are asked of him.
Always interested in getting some inside info in 1st SFOD-d, also a very good story, listening the next one now, also a page turner.
I'm a guy. I like books about war and sci-fi. I listen to 2 or 3 books a week.
It's a good story and I rather enjoyed it. Not bad for the man who almost got Bin Laden. The writing was dead-on.
