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
Liked the first two in a series, but this story did not make any sence, specially the second half.
Seemed like it was written by somebody else.
Seems like the author decided not to use an editor for this book. Or, perhaps, he chose to use one who was not an English speaker. Not once, not twice, but THREE times, he referred to a described "sucking chest wound" as a "sunken chest wound." It really seems odd that a former operator would make such an error.The story often jumped abruptly from an action scene to "a couple of days later at headquarters..." More importantly the story just frequently seems very awkward. I swear that it reads more like a first or second draft than a finished piece.
Sure. He's not at George Guidall's level, but Mr. Fliakos does a solid job here.
Confusion. The first two books did not suffer from the terrible editing that this one did. Another person commented that Fury did not write this book. If he did write the first two, I would agree. The writing style seems very off from the first two books. (By the way, I would cheerfully recommend either of the first books in this series.)
I sure hope that the next book being released in a few days is substantially better produced than this one.
I liked that Kolt is not dead...LOL...This was only a shadow of his first two books...way to much redundancy. I mean how many times do we have to hear about why Kolt is doing this, and what he did before and how for the 3rd time he his saving thousands of people maybe millions...or maybe the whole frickin' world. I know its a novel...but come on now, lets keep it somewhat real!
Still a good listen but 1/2 way thru I was was ready to abandon the novel.
There is way too much going on to pick one!
It does seem that all franchise authors hit the wall at one of there books. I think this was it for Dalton Fury. I bet the next one will be as good as the first 2.
The story really jumps around. There were several times in during the book that I thought I may have missed a chapter or something. The scenes jump from one location to another and he doesnt explain how the character got out a certain situation.
Yes. I like the narrator and author. This book just wasn't as good as the first 2.
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.
I might. The reader was good, but I did not like the way the book jumped around.
I really liked Dalton Fury's first 2 books, but was disappointed with this one. The book jumps around too much. The main charactor is in the middle of an enemy camp in Afgahnistan at the end of one chapter (Cliff Hanger) and the beginning of the next chapter, it is 2 weeks later and he is at Fort Bragg with only a flashback glimps of how he got out of Afgahnistan.
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.
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.
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Full Assault Mode is the third book in Dalton Fury's Delta Force series the main character of which is Kolt Raynor. Full Assault Mode is about a terrorist attack on a nuclear power plant.
Dalton Fury has established himself as a tier one author of action thrillers. I recommend this book and the Delta Force series without reservation. The 4th Delta force novel will be released on October 20, 2015. It is not yet available for pre-order at Audible.
Ari Fliakos does a fine job of narration.
