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 was in an Army airborne unit in Afghanistan stationed right next to the border, and although not a special operator, I could relate with a lot of what Kolt was experiencing, and it just brought be back in vivid detail! I was able to visualize almost everything! I especially like Dalton's writing because, unlike Vince Flynn, the language is realistic and there are really no lewd language or sexual references, which is just wholly unnecessary to create a great story. I find that all too often with Vince Flynn's content.
I didn't expect a story with a lot of twists and turns or a complex plot, but Dalton delivered! I got the Audible audiobook and there is an interview with Dalton at the end which I appreciated.
I seriously can't wait for the next one to get released!! Highly recommended!
I love this genre. Read or listened to all the Flynns, Silva, Eisler, Coes. This book is right up there at the top. Great story, great character, no slow spots easy to follow and semi realistic for normal people probably very realistic for spec ops people. You can't go wrong with this one, worth every penny and minute of your time. The narrator was very good, the only reason he didn't get a five is because he didn't differetiate the characters voices enough but did a fine job. He wasn't boring or too slow.
I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
The narrator made the experience of listening to Black Site the most enjoyable..
Yes, the plot was one that allowed the author to create a novel filled with action and suspense.
My favorite scene was when it was made known that the five Delta Force men, who were thought to be dead, were proven to be alive.
There was one scene where I did cry. The scene involved the pilot who had been placed in a different area of confinement for the three years of the five men's imprisonment. He was not allowed to have any contact with the other four men.
Be sure to purchase, Black Site: A Delta Force Novel, you will not be disappointed. The men who have fought in the Afghanistan war need to write about their experiences. The novel is fiction but some of the actual events of the novel were experienced by the author. The author has a formidable story to share.
I've read all the "Espionage" and "Action Thrillers" greats ... Clancy, Berenson, Thor, Flynn, etc .... and if this looks like YOUR reading list, you'll LOVE this book and author. The book is more "grounded" than some, lacking Hollywood antics, and instead focusing on a great, plausible story and realistic dialogue. This is the best book in the genre I've read to date. Can't wait for the next installment.
This is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to! Real, believable, action, suspense and drama. Since I listen to around 200 books a year, (well over 1,100 total) this is saying a lot! Get this audiobook, you won't be disappointed!
Loved the book. I like action stories where the bad guys get wasted and this book does not disappoint. The hero is pretty much a super hero in many ways but it is a story, who wants normal?
The narration is very good as well.
Dept Q, Harry Hole... where are you?
Ive listened or read too many thrillers featuring great characters with almost super human abilities. I liked them all, but it seems to me Mitch Rapp, Jack Reacher, the Grey Man, etcetera have been too good to believe. So I purchased Black Site with some prejudice.
What led me to this book was the author's recent background as Delta member himself. It was a wise decision.
The hero here is a decorated, but disgraced combat veteran who becomes a drunk after he leads his team into an ambush. He's called back into action because he is expendable. What follows is a tough and gritty adventure that leads to his own redemption. It is an extremely accurate tale of espionage and warfare.
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 am supposing Dalton Fury is a pen name. :o) No matter, the book was very well done. Good plot that was action packed and Mr Fury held the swearing in good check, no dropping the 'F Bomb every other sentence. I have never heard this narrator before but he did an excellent job. So I hope Mr Dalton Fury has another book to follow this one to continue Racer's adventures. Glad I didnt pass this one up.
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Dalton Fury's Delta Force/Kolt Raynor series is part combat and part espionage. Black Site is Book 1 of the series. Like author Brad Taylor this author. Dalton Fury, has the experience as a special forces commander to write credibly about such matters and he is a great story teller. The Black Site is a site in Afghanistan used by the US to question high value terrorist suspects. It is overrun by terrorists with Americans captured and taken to the badlands of westernn Pakistan. Raynor's job is to rescue the Americans and return them.
Black SIte is a well written and suspenseful novel. I have previously written reviews of Books 3 and 4 in the series. Ari Fiakos narrates all of the series and he does a great job.
