Publisher's Summary

Another riveting thriller from award-winning and best-selling author Jack Patterson in a new series about a black ops assassin wreaking havoc on terrorists everywhere.

With ruthless terrorist cells multiplying by the day, the head of the snake must be cut off - and Brady Hawk swings a sharp ax.

Realizing the ineffectiveness of America's own counter-terrorism unit, Texas senator J.D. Blunt proposes a black ops program that's so off the books that only a handful of people know about it. Given the reins and funding to construct his own organization, Blunt creates Firestorm and recruits one of the most effective operatives the American government has ever known: Brady Hawk.

Working with D.C.-based handler Alex Duncan, Hawk learns the location of chief bomb maker for the terrorist group Al Hasib and enters into a race against the clock to eliminate him as well as the man behind the cell before they destroy a key US target.

But that's not all Hawk learns. As the son of the world's most renowned weapons manufacturer, Hawk must also come to terms that maybe his father isn't who he thinks he is - and neither is Blunt.

This pulse-pounding thriller will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very last shot is fired.

    "Not very good with playback issues"

    I made it through the book but it wasn't great. I've already purchased the second story so I guess I'll give it a chance to see if its any better. Just not a very deep story and you don't really get connected to any of the characters. I was disappointed.

    I also had issues with the playback (as someone else mentioned) as it kept repeating chapters and the announced chapter did not match the displayed chapter. weird. Just added to the poor experience

    "It was a very slow go."

    The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. This was a very slow book and frankly if I'd been reading it on my PC or Kindle I'd probably have given up on it before I'd gotten to 30%. It finally got better around 50 or 60%. I don't know if it was just my copy of the audiobook or not but from Chapter 39 to the end of the book each chapter was duplicated. It was really annoying having to listen to the first few seconds of each chapter to confirm it was in fact the same and then scroll to the end of the chapter. If it's the actual recording that is messed up I hope they fix it.
