Delta Force operator Kolt Raynor must thwart a deadly terrorist plot in this globe-hopping special operations thriller in the New York Times best-selling series.
When SEAL Team Six killed Osama bin Laden, they pulled a treasure trove of intelligence on planned attacks on U.S. soil. Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda's new leader, is activating his most trusted (and deadliest) terrorists to carry out his newest plot: to detonate a bomb inside one of the 64 commercial nuclear power plants in the U.S. in an attack 10 times worse than 9/11, causing radiological fallout that would kill hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans.
The president wants answers quickly, and after Kolt Raynor saved his life a few months earlier, he knows Delta Force is fully capable. But Kolt is on the verge of getting forced out of JSOC for disobeying orders in Pakistan - and when he's offered a slot in Tungsten, an ultra-secret deep-cover organization, he jumps at the chance. Now his task is to infiltrate al Qaeda and prevent this deep-cover terror cell from making their plot a reality before it's too late. In Full Assault Mode, former Delta Force commander Dalton Fury takes listeners inside the world of undercover special operations - where every wrong step costs lives, and one minute might just be one minute too late....

Though this book started off with some promise - By the middle I was ready to delete from my library. This was a full assault on my brain in general. Note to author - Please stop inserting a dialog about who Kolt Raynor is supposed to be in the beginning of the book. I know that Kolt is not real - You telling me about why you created him and what I am supposed to think about him - Is like telling me this guy is totally make believe. Don't tell me how good the chocolate is. Just give me a piece & I determine how good it is on my own. Kolt's internal dialog and moral dilema's have to go as well. I listened to the first two novels & I thought the 2nd was better than the first. When the 3rd installment came out - I thought "Great" but I also thought it was quick. This story line confirmed the latter. You want to know how i know this guy isn't Mitch Rapp like some would think - Mitch would have killed and mamed whoever to get to Hawk. The suicide mission was weird. Shot - Radiactive water - Semi drowning - Fake bombs - Mass execution to insert a player. Are we still in something that isn't science fiction? A good friend - I.E. Publisher/Editor if they read this should have told you what I'm about to tell you. This book stunk. Sorry man
not the best of the series but still good. if you like the other books you will like this one
Overall I still enjoyed the book, characters and plot. A little frustrating with some of the errors in the story with recalling events in previous books and how it jumped around a lot with huge gaps in the story.
FULL ASSAULT MODE is the third in the Kolt Raynor series and it is a fast paced, exciting ride, as one would expect of a tale about Delta Force and terrorism. The book builds up the team relationship within Delta before having our hero, Major “Racer” Raynor getting in trouble with his direct superior officer when Raynor disobeys an order but manages to complete a dangerous mission. It then takes Raynor down a rode that he would never expect........!!!
This book was unrealistic at times but very good nonetheless. I suppose all heroes, from James Bond to Jack Bauer, rock the boat and survive by killing all the bad guys so I cannot be too surprised. I'm glad Racer will be around for the next book.
The Author of this book was not the author of the first two books in this series
I would try it out
He set up his characters and storied in a hurried fashion
I loved the first two books in this series. In fact, they may be my favorites in this genre. This installment, unfortunately, was poorly edited. It is filled with long, circular streams of thought, bizarre time lapses that constantly had me wondering if a day or a month had passed within the story, and over-the-top plot twists that felt more at home in a cartoon.
Not at all. I chalk this up to poor editing.
The entire book had me mildly perplexed ... as if I'd missed a chapter or five. I honestly didn't enjoy any of the scenes.
At the risk of repetition, I love the first two installments. Assuming the author hires the original editor, I'll chalk this one up to a "miss" and look forward to Kolt's next adventure.
What can I say, great author, great story and great narrator. All three things go together to make this a great book. I listen to the books while driving and have sat in my driveway listening to end of the chapter. I have even caught myself looking forward to driving to work so I can get another hour of listening in. As before Dalton Fury has written a fast moving and exciting book. Sometime predictable but not always and just enough to keep you listening to see what is going to happen next. I hope we have not seen the last of Dalton Fury books.
The narrator and pace of the book
He is great at putting you in the story.
Kolt and his Tier one operators are back in the beginning of this novel for more well told great detail and action. As usual Kolt finds himself in trouble with commanding officers and Kernel Webber trying to protect him. About half way through the novel Kolt becomes a singleton operator for some mystery organization, at this point I found the transition from a team operator to singleton hard to follow. Kolt and the story spin to more of a CIA operation with Kolt on his own and clearly not part of a team. I miss ‘the team’. I continue to appreciate the professionalism and respect Kolt shows for the female character Hawk, a nice change from many authors. However, there were elements that were missing (I mean what happened to Troy, Hawks boyfriend, when she was missing or later when awards are given), or the fact that Kolt won’t leave a team mate behind yet he doesn’t seem to scour the earth or put pressure on or make a real effort to find Hawk. The first two novels and the beginning of this one are full of exacting detail (mag loaded in pocket with bullets to the right) but then all of a sudden almost all detail disappears and Kolt is a singleton operator. Some of the detail returns at the end in the action sequences and my reaction was ‘phew I am back to the same author and story teller’. I enjoyed the first book, LOVED the second book and the third book is worth the credit but not as great at the second book. I like the characters and the way they are written, like the team and unit, I am looking forward to more.
