Publisher's Summary

Set in the aftermath of Betley’s “machine-gun pace” (Booklist) Oath of Honor and the discovery of a deadly global conspiracy, the president requests Logan West to form a covert task force with the mission to dismantle a nameless enemy.

With the full resources of the Justice Department, the intelligence community, and the military (not to mention presidential pardons pre-signed), Logan must battle a secret organization with the connections and funding to rival many first-world nations. The goal of this organization is both singular and sinister - to pit the United States against China in a bid to dismantle the world’s security and economy. Back on US soil, Logan and his task force pursue the elusive foe from the woods of Northern Virginia to the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, from suburban Maryland across the urban sprawl of Washington, DC. The stakes have never been higher for Logan or America itself....

Great Book

I have enjoyed listening to all three of the Logan West books. I enjoy the sarcasm and banter, it's one of the things that I enjoyed and now miss from my time in the Marines. The only comment I have is that instead of reading the letters of the acronyms they should be pronounced/read the way the they are used in conversation. Thanks for the story's.

One of the best thrillers of this decade

Wow, does Matthew Betley really mash the pedal to the floor from the first word and never lets up. This is one of the most fast-paced, heart-pounding books that will keep you up listening all night. I'm a huge fan of George Newbern (from ABC's Scandal), and his narration is fantastic. His narration is a little different than the large majority of thriller narrators (George Guidall, Scott Brick, Ray Porter, Jay Snyder), but I find it refreshing, and I think he is the perfect voice for Logan West. I have listened to Matthew Betley's debut thriller Overwatch over 50 times, and his second book Oath of Honor probably just about as many. I highly, highly recommend not only checking out Field of Valor, but Oath of Honor and Overwatch too.

Constant Blasphemy as Poor Substitute for Emotional Expression

I’m done. Sadly this is my last Betley novel. George Newbern is a terrific narrator, but the constant blasphemy gushing out of Every major character’s mouth is just too much. I’m No Evangelical and drop multiple f-bombs in Every discussion of Trump/Pence and their cretinous minions, but Betley canNOT seem to write character verbal interactions w/o hurling JC!!! and GD!!! into Every paragraph. Disappointing because I luuove Betley’s creative and believable story lines drawing on current national and international social and political crises.

Excellent book

Author obviously used real life gun actions from his Marine experiences. Several outstanding gun batty, really cool subplots and just the right amount of details. Can’t wait to listen to book four.

Not his best work

Plot was predictable and boring. Too much stupid dialogue that tried to be cute and smart ass.

read or listen to books 1&2 first

really good action-packed and entertaining this picks up on the story from both books one and two and although books one and two in my opinion could be read independently this book relies heavily on the storyline of both of the first two as a continuation in the plot and storyline. I've enjoyed them all this one the least probably because it seemed to rather short and very predictable but still very entertaining extremely well read and a storyline that made sense and had purpose

Great book

I'm really liking this series. More than I thought when I first read about it. The narrator is good and the story is action packed. I like all the characters and the building of their relationships adds a nice touch.

Enough with the excessive details

Decent story, but the need to include exact model numbers of every piece of gear got really tedious and irritating. Still worth the listen.
