The hard-hitting sequel to groundbreaking military adventure Dead Six.
On the far side of the world, deep in former Soviet Central Asia, lies a stronghold called the Crossroads. It is run with an iron fist by a brutal warlord calling himself Sala Jihan. He is far more than a petty dictator, for Jihan holds the fate of nations in his grasp. To save a world slipping into chaos, Jihan must either fall or be controlled.
One secret military organization called Exodus plans to see that this happens. For this mission, they need the best of the best. Unfortunately the man they need is rotting in an almost unassailable foreign prison.
Enter Lorenzo, thief extraordinaire. Lorenzo is now retired, happily married, and living in paradise. His Achilles heel: an FBI-agent brother who has gone missing - disappeared into the stronghold of warlord Jihan. Exodus promises to give Lorenzo his chance to rescue his brother if and only if Lorenzo will perform one service for them: break Michael Valentine out of a captivity from which no one has ever emerged alive.
And if Lorenzo can accomplish that - well then, the Crossroads awaits the sword of Exodus.

Pinochet is the master here in this story as it's teller. However, here I find a little too much win by the bad guys and not nearly enough to balance by the good guys. Might this be the 'Two Towers' of the series?
Unfortunately - and I mean that from the bottom of my Heart as I love Larry Correia - this was not a good listen, and not time well spent.
First book was guns and explosions. It worked OK. Now they introduce monsters and psychics. Why? This is not monster hunter or the spellbound series. It does not work.
Also you waste time having to follow a thin plot, where the culmination is a vague and weak battle. The humour and normal style of not taking itself too serious is gone here.
Not the next book in the series when it is released
He is just plain awesome as a narrator. You will have to like a narrator that does different voices, "shows" emotions etc. I am one of those that thinks it gives the story more depth. He is a master of doing that.
Lots of cliffhangers, so yes it needs (and it is planned) a follow-up.
However I will not be buying it.
2 - 3 story lines going at all times. Action was to long and moments of slow down were not to long
Plot was the best and kept me on the edge of my seat. It is a story line that keeps you wondering whats next. You think you have it figured out when a twist and direction you never thought of happens.
I liked both Lorenzo and Valentine equally well. Narrator is so good you do not have to be told who is talking.
Great read and I can't wait for the third book.
I hate to wait. This was another great story. How does he do it? Very action packed and interesting. 10
Fabulous follow-up to Dead Six. Leaves me really jonesing for Project Blue, and the hope that Bronson Pinchot will be the voice actor.
Great story, characters and action. The authors really know their weapons. Only complaint I have is Bronson's women are too soft spoken. I listened to a lot of this in the car (as I suspect many do). If I turn the audio up enough to hear Ling or Kat, everything else blasts.
excellent, really enjoyed it, an action packed roller coaster ride. can't wait for the next book.
