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.

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.
I was a bit surprised to find out in the beginning that this author was a special forces trooper himself. I have tried to listen to other books either written by or with someone in special forces and I've usually found them written in language and with a certain gung ho attitude that really seems geared more towards those with military experience. This author is a great story teller that is interesting even for those of us with no previous connection to the military.
This story is multi level. Our hero has fallen because of a bad decision that resulted in his command all dying, and his best friend and a couple others either dying or captured trying to rescue them. He's given a chance to try to locate those captured men on what everyone, including himself considers a suicide mission. He's more than willing to put himself in harms way if it means he might be able to help rescue them.
The story is really a pretty good roller coaster ride with a lot of close calls. It kept me really alert while chewing up a lot of highway in my truck......I see he has two more in this series....I will be getting them because this guy can really write.
Racer is my new hero!! Kept me on the edge of my seat from start to end. Great narration. One of my favorite listens of this year.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
There has been a hole in my book collection vacated by Vince Flynn and the Mitch Rapp series. My search in the thriller/spy department has been futile. While no one will be able to hit the high bar he has sent in the literary world, I am pleased to have found Dalton Fury and his Delta Force novels. I feel confident in his series based on his first book.
The main character, Kolt Rayner, is a former Delta force operator who lived through hell. He has survivors guilt and looking for redemption. He is able to find ways in, out, around and through situations with remarkable cunning, smarts and training.
I am thrilled to have found this series!
Ari Fliakos is great with his performance of all of the characters.
I am off to add the rest of Dalton Fury's books to my WishList.
Note: Violence and strong language (NOT a romance)
Thank you for reading my review. If you found it helpful, please take a moment to select 'YES' directly beneath this text.
After reading all of the Mitch Rapp series I was left wanting more. This is a great option and I look forward to reading the entire series
