Publisher's Summary

An electrifying new thriller series for listeners who love Vince Flynn and Brad Thor! Former marine officer Matthew Betley introduces fearless soldier Logan West in this action-packed, globe-trotting, edge-of-your-seat debut.

Former Marine Force Reconnaissance officer Logan West emerges from a blackout after drinking away the worries of his ruined marriage and PTSD, an all too familiar scene for the recovering alcoholic. But he wakes to more than a killer hangover: A professional mercenary has been sent to capture him. After an embattled showdown, Logan impulsively answers the dead man's ringing phone, triggering a hasty rescue of Logan's estranged wife and a global race against the clock to track down an unknown organization searching for an Iraqi flag central to a planned attack in the Middle East - one that will draw the US into a major conflict with Iran.

Logan and John Quick, Logan's former platoon sergeant who has also been targeted by these shadowy mercenaries, are contracted as "consultants" to assist the FBI as part of a special task force led by Logan's close friend. From the plains of the Midwest to the Alamo and mansions in Northern Mexico to the war-torn Al Anbar province, the battles build in scale and scope and pit an international team against mercenaries and former Special Forces operators employed by the world's largest private security contractor, whose owner has a shadowy personal vendetta of his own.

Meanwhile Logan is battling his own demons, unable to shake the trauma of the ambush that his Force Recon unit suffered at an insurgent torture compound in Fallujah in 2004. Mixing thrilling, you-are-there fight scenes with high-stakes tactical maneuvers and complex, fully realized characters, Overwatch is up to the minute and impossible to pause.

    Story
    "repetitive"

    the story is creative and captivating, but the action sequences get very repetitive. Betley does a good job with details of settings, but has a hard time describing the mindset of someone with PTSD.

    "A great start"

    A new author who will grow "Logan" into a character to follow. Worth the read.

    "What a difference a few new twist make!"

    First off there will be another book, friends, earned trust, being like minded, relationship problems, and guest ions of honor, if any of these subjects interest you. You'll find it all in this book.
    Is the best book I have listened to....No, but it was an enjoyable listen. It certainly beats a lot of the %#^* that is currently being passed a a literary best seller.
    If you are having trouble finding average+ book here is one to consider

    Story
    "This entire story is predictable and overly macho."

    To claim this story is reminiscent of Vince Flynn is a travesty.

    The plot is basic and predictable, and is just each character telling us how good he is.

    Very poor effort.

    "Great Start"

    Logan West quickly shows he belongs in the company of Mitch Rapp and Scot Harvath, just as Matthew Betley now gets mentioned in the same sentences as their creators. Solid story, well told, and kept moving. I look forward to many more in this series.

    "Waste of time and money"

    I guess I have just heard to many better versions of this sort of thing. Tom Clancy wannabe that comes up way short IMHO

    "Perfect"

    This book is as described those who are fans of vince flynn and brad thor will enjoy this. It was all action but with a good storey line behind it. I hope this turns into a long lasting series. The characters are very likeable and have you rooting for them at every turn. The narrator did a very good job and was very easy to listen to. So if you.would like a good action book then give this a try.
