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.

I always enjoy a story by someone who had been there - done -that.
Lots of action without getting too technical. I can see this becoming a major box office hit.
Great book. Great Narrator. One of the best books I have read/listened to in quite a long time. Hoping this Author continues this series for quite a while.
... seconds after finishing the first book. Solid book from an American hero. this is informed fiction... lingo as correct and the feel or the painting the author paints reminds me of the D boys i observed at a distance as a young soldier while in a nasty warlord (now pirate ) infested country.
great read/listen. thank you again Mr Fury for giving me non-SEAL option in this space...even they need heros (RTLW).
I've read all of Dalton Fury's books and very much enjoyed listening to the audio version of Black Site. Looking forward to listening to the next one and hope to see the entire series recorded in audio form and available at Audible.
What a great story!
Other than a few very small details like enunciation or how a particular word is said the narrator didn't excellent job.
I'm really looking forward to the next book.
Yes, Black Site is a well written action packed book. Kolt "Racer" Raynor is a fun character to follow. Listening to the way Dalton Fury tell the story it is very realistic feeling. Dalton as most know wrote the book Kill Bin Laden and was a member of the country's elite special mission unit Delta Force. He writes from first hand knowledge about how someone might go about these things, it adds credibility to the fictional story and makes it that much more exciting.
Nothing really compares to this book. Some of the Clancy novels come close but the only thing that compares to this book is the others in the series.
LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!
I buy Audible books to help make my daily slow drive to work less frustrating. This book has me idling when I get to work/home to finish listening! Nonstop action from page 1 has me hanging on every word.
The story was good but I just couldn't get past the writing. Every other sentence was a metaphor or simile. "The road wound through the mountains like a snake.: "His head was pounding like a jackhammer." After a while it just got annoying. Let me imagine the landscape for myself. Needed more showing, less telling.
I usually don't read these types of stories, but I'm glad I decided to take a chance on this one. I wasn't disappointed, it was a great story. It was exciting,fast paced and engaging. A real interesting page Turner. It would make a great movie. I'm a fan now.
