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 went into this book with low expectations, I like the material but most books in this genre are all jargon and equipment spec and little on plot and thick on hokey action. This book is actually well written, has a great plot, and contains really well written action, oh, and the equipment specs are perfect. I cannot tell you how happy I was with this book, it unfolded well, had great character development, a great cast and was written from an inside perspective with talent that brought the story to the lay audience in an interesting and heartfelt fashion. I really liked this book. If you do not care for military stories, this may be the one exception to make, it is a good story. If you like military themed stories you are going to love this book, it is written from someone who knows the material from a life spent living it and then brings it to the page in good style, better than what you are used to getting by far. I was surprised by the talent this author has and happy I listened to this story.
Well recommended for anyone that likes a great action / suspense story.
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.
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 enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
Dalton Fury is a powerfully entertaining author of the counter-espionage novel. He stands unique because he is an actual veteran who has experienced the men and action be portrays fictionally in his novels. I enjoy his details about strategy, tactics, weapons, and politics involved in fighting covert objectives in our modern world. I was never bored. He fills his plot with non-stop action. I thoroughly enjoyed his first book also: "Kill Bin Laden". I look forward to his next book. He is a fantastic new addition to this genre. If you like The books of Vince Flynn, you will love Dalton Fury.
Everything; this book is a great book and hopefully the start of a fantastic series.
Mitch Rapp series, many reasons hard to be specific.
No, but Ari Fliakos's was great.
Everything about this book was just great!
Ari Fliakos gives a great delivery of the book. I just couldn't find a good place to stop finished the book in just a few days.
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.
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 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.
