Publisher's Summary

The Central Intelligence Agency is under attack, and so is its top field operative, Kyle Swanson. The highly decorated former marine corps gunnery sergeant is attending the funeral of a friend when a terrorist blows up the grave. A week later he narrowly survives a grenade attack in Berlin. In Washington, Congress is being told that Swanson has been turned, his private employer is corrupt, and the agency itself cannot be trusted. Swanson is assigned to find the root of the problem and is partnered up with Luke Gibson, a skilled operative rated as being almost as good as Swanson.

They are looking for assassin Nicky Marks, who also was a CIA shooter but now works for a shadowy power broker known as The Prince. But before Kyle and Luke can eliminate the threat, they must identify and find the man who wants them dead. That takes them from the pink poppy fields of Afghanistan to the jungles of Southeast Asia and the streets of America as they learn that The Prince is the ruthless kingpin of a global drug empire that uses CIA planes to transport opium and heroin. Swanson also lines up a secret partner, the beautiful widow of his friend whose grave was desecrated in Mexico, the sharpshooting former commando Beth Ledford, who has her own agenda of pure retribution. Kyle Swanson, at the worst possible moment in a combat showdown, must decide: Do you trust your partner, and, if so, which one?

YAY! Welcome Back Luke Daniels!

Would you listen to In the Crosshairs again? Why?

Absolutely! It was so awesome to have Luke Daniels back as the narrator. He IS the voice of Kyle, Coastie, OO and the rest of the gang. Plus the story was intense and sad and awesome all at the same time

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hello - Kyle of course because he is a bad ass!

Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

Luke does an awesome Lady Pat! :)

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I listened to this book primarily on long bike rides and the reaction of other joggers and bikers to my facial expressions was hilarious.

Any additional comments?

I don't know if there will be another book with the way this one ended and if that is the case I'm glad you had Luke to finish it off! Awesome book series! :)

Confusing and underdeveloped

The story bounces around quickly and is not focused like previous works. Very disappointing. The narrator is very amateurish.

Jack Coughlin is in Flynn/Thor's league ....

I've read all the Vince Flynns, Brad Thors, and the other Top Ten in the genre. This guy - Jack Coughlin and "Kyle Swanson" deserve a place at that VIP table.

I especially enjoy the Excalibur element... and "Coasty".

Check out this series... and, yes, recommend you read'em in order.

Great Characters Throughout the Series

First, I loved this series. Like all series some books are better than others this book is average for the series which is still above average for other series. Overall it is well written and while you didn’t have to read earlier books in the series it would be helpful to have read/listened to Running the Maze (book 5) and On Scope (book 7). There weren’t many surprises or twists – we could see just about everything coming. There were some inconsistencies and hanging threads but overall well done. Spoiler alert - the authors repeated two of their earlier tricks of sorts, only rather than have Kyle be declared dead this time he is supposedly paralyzed and in a comma – but the reader could see this coming. And once again there is a play for ‘top sniper’ and like the earlier Juba showdown – Kyle doesn’t go all macho. While I would like more stories and adventures with Kyle it doesn’t feel like there will be based on the epilogue. My recommendation, if the authors are reading this, is to go back and fill in with stories of Kyle before Trident or even more while he was part of Trident. I think some of the best stories and writing in the series were when Kyle was working with a team of his brother Marines. I hope this isn't the last in the series.
