I have a relative who recently wrote, produced and directed his first movie (a real, actual movie, not a YouTube video). I recently saw it, and it was awful. I say that because I was reading this novel during the same time frame that I saw the movie, and realized that an artist's debut can be a big hit or miss. Jack Carr's first book is a hit. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone interested in revenge thrillers, but especially to people who are interested in the SEALs and Spec Ops in general. This book will also appeal to those who are part of the "gun culture" like I am. In other words, if you're into guns, you'll appreciate the author's attention to detail in his accurate descriptions of firearms and how they're handled. (You'll especially appreciate that accuracy in a scene in which a character does some long range target practice.)
I never buy novels. I always check them out for free at the library. But I bought this because James Yeager recommended it, and I'm glad I did. It was well worth the money and the time I spent reading it. I'm now going to pass it off to my dad, and I know he'll enjoy it, too. I look forward to Jack Carr's next novel.
