The government made him deadly; vampires made him immortal.... A new hero and a new genre from Kindle best-selling author Alex Shaw.
Brad Black, call sign "Peter Pan", is a member of America's elite Delta Force unit. Tasked to recon a tunnel network in use by the Taliban, it is just another day in the sandpit for the delta boys until something attacks them in the darkness. Presumed killed in action, Black is abducted by a shadowy figure before being forced to cross the inhospitable Afghan wilderness in order to be reunited with what is left of his team.
Meanwhile a general from Russian Military Intelligence (GRU) arrives at Firebase Python with news of a Cold War weapons experiment so shocking its existence has, until now, remained secret. Horrific secrets buried in the Afghan mountains for a quarter of a century are about to be unleashed.

I enjoy crime & mystery thrillers fiction, some fantasy and futuristic. Favorite authors, JD Robb, Evanovich, Tom Wood, Adrian, Robards, etc
I think the idea for this book would have been a very good story but it is to fractionated. There are too many different stories within this book. Each of the different nationalities should have been separated and explained from the very beginning of the book then the story would flow much better and the story understood. As it is you get lost too many times trying to figure out who's the good guy and who's not.
The technical aspect and the accuracy of the military. The story was fast paced and direct. Very action packed and if your a firearms affectionado it is enjoyable to listen to!
The Narrator was flat and seemed to be more struggling to keep up with the words than conveying the story. The audio recorder/director did the narrator a HUGE disservice. The audio was tinny.
The audio recording of this book sounds like it was done in a tin can, or someone tried to get creative with the sound board. As much as I wanted to enjoy the book, I kept thinking "chef-boyardee? Campbell's? What can was the reader speaking through to make this sound effect?"
