New York Times best-selling author and former Delta Force commander Dalton Fury (Black Site and Kill Bin Laden) is back with an explosive new thriller.
Former disgraced Delta Force commander Kolt "Racer" Raynor has earned his way back into The Unit after redeeming himself during an explosive operation at a black site in Pakistan. But he is about to face his deadliest challenge yet. The most wanted man in the world, American al Qaeda commander Daoud al Amriki, and his handpicked team of terrorist operatives, have acquired stores of Russian-built, shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAM's) from ex-Libyan spies in Cairo. Their mission: infiltrate the United States and take down American aircraft. The country's best are tasked with stopping them. But when a SEAL Team Six mission to take down al Amriki goes wrong, Major Raynor and his Delta Force team find themselves front and center as Amriki and his terrorists work their way closer to America. And time is running out.
Dramatic and revealing, Tier One Wild takes listeners on an international thrill ride from the black ops nerve center of JSOC to the bloody streets of Cairo in a story only a former Delta Force commander could tell.

This is a great follow up to Black Site, the first Delta Force series book. Lots of action with a cool insight into the world of Delta Force. Ari Fliakos does a fantastic job of bringing the book to life! My only complaint, and the reason the story gets 4 Stars instead of 5, is that it seems to end very quickly with many coincidences and lots of just plain luck. But what do I know, maybe that's the way it works in the real world. Although it's not mandatory, I'd suggest reading Black Site first to get the most out of this story. I truly enjoyed the writing, thoroughly enjoyed the narration and I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!
Most definately. One of the best second books from a 'new' author in a series I think I have ever listened to! Kudos to 'Dalton Fury'!
There wasn't just one. Book was excellent from start to finish. Events where well told from both emotional and operational perspective. And there were no obvoius turns .. well told story!
No I have not. But he did a good job - he read the book and didn't get in the way of the author's story. His different voices for the characters worked well. I would listen to other books he read.
Yes. I didn't want to stop, but I also didn't want to finish the book because I didn't want the story to end!
Very very impressed with second book in this series. I have listened to many series over the years. The good authors improve from one book to the next till they really hit their voice and their characters but it takes 3 or 4 novels. This second novel was an outstanding second book, light years ahead. I can't wait to listen to more. In fact, although they aren't ficition I plan to go back and listen to the nonfiction books by this author.
Just playing a few japes
The first one was amazing, just as this one was. Picks up RIGHT where BLACK SITE left off and were once again with "Racer" on a world wide hunt.
Daoud al Amriki has gained access to 60 SAM's (surface to air missles:Russian IGLA-S systems to be precise) that have been stolen, sold and smuggled to end up being the hopeful cause for and american infrastructure terrorist attack.
Dalton Fury never ceases to amaze in the second of the delta force novels giving a brief-and very detailed-summary of people, weapons, places, organizations and many others throughout the novel
With action and suspence happening almost every chapter and Ari Fliakos in your earbuds, your in for one wild ride as Kolt Raynor is in a life and death race to catch up with the infamous David to foil his plans and save not only the "POTUS" but also America.
Hard to rank among ALL the audiobooks I've listened to but it is definitely one of the very best I've read / listened to in the genre.
It was exciting and full of action while remaining very believable.
Hard to explain without spoiling the whole book but it was the last scene of the book.
The first Dalton Fury book I read was his nonfiction memoir of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden titled "Kill Bin Laden." While that book is excellent, and highly recommended, his two Delta Force novels are probably my favorite books in the genre. If you like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Tom Clancy, and others like them then you will definitely enjoy Dalton Fury's books. His years as a genuine Delta Force Officer add a level of credibility and believability to his stories that is sometimes lacking in the work of other authors.
Dalton Fury has definitely done his homework. Kept my attention and believable enough to make me think. Ari Fliakos is easy to listen to and was spot on with his narration.
Gotta have it, gotta listen to it, can't wait for the next one! This does not disappoint.
This book picks up after the events in "Black Site" and quickly catches your attention. Well thought storyline that has depth to it, that will keep you listening. Smooth flowing, not rushed, but not bogging down either, the tempo of the book was good! Continued character development, makes Kolt Raynor more personable, and relatable.
I felt like this book was well thought about and the author took his time creating the plot and storyline. It wasn't rushed out, lacking in details and depth like some books in a new series that is popular.
I want more!
The end was amazing and leaves you wanting more.
Very consistant reader.
I am very excited to see where Dalton takes this character in the future.
Say something about yourself!
I so enjoy this well described weaponry and combat tactics. The fight scenes were graphiclly sharp and not too much, not too little.
A gamble on my part that really paid off.
