After a blazing operation to destroy Syrian chemical weapons, it is time for Echo Six to take a well-earned furlough. Until Lieutenant-Commander Talley's girlfriend disappears in the war-torn city of Beirut. And Hezbollah kidnaps a senior member of the United Nations.
NATO orders the elite Special Forces unit to locate and recover the diplomat. The trail leads to a Hezbollah refugee camp. Located on the Southern Lebanese border with Israel, it is home to some of the worst, most vicious fighters in the Middle East. The solution - to send in an elite force, men whose toughness and fighting skills are more than a match for the Islamic fundamentalists. These are the men of Echo Six.
The action that follows is a bloody battle stretching from the city of Beirut, across Lebanon and even into Saudi Arabia. The cruel influence of Hezbollah stretches across the entire region, where they are renowned for trafficking women for guns and executing all who stand in their way. A violent story of heroism, deceit and betrayal. Echo Six: Black Ops - Battle for Beirut is a worthy, action packed sequel to the best-selling Echo Six: Black Ops novels.
The characters in this book are clear as to who is talking. Very suspenseful and interesting makes you want to keep listening. I recommend this book to anybody who likes suspense and military scene.

Any additional comments?
Mr. Meyer's Echo Six Black Ops The Battle For Beirut is a fast paced, exciting, descriptive book that captures the reader immediately from the Prologue. The reader is transported to war torn Middle East; which is extremely powerful and relatable to current events. All the characters get you emotionally invested in the story. The feelings that I developed for them were very strong - anger, frustration, pain, fear, and hope. The twists and turns the book takes you through reveals a lot about the good and bad in human nature. It is a book that once you start reading you can not put down. This is a book for anyone who is interested in high action, thriller novel! Eric Meyer does an awesome job in transporting the reader right in the middle of all the action and being part of the story. This is a must read!
