Publisher's Summary

A breakneck, edge-of-your-seat thriller that moves from a resurgent Russian threat in the Aleutian Islands to North Korean spy ships to secret Sudanese prisons as former marines Logan West and John Quick, now members of an FBI special task force, uncover a global conspiracy that threatens America's position in the current international balance of power.

Logan West and John Quick are sent to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, to investigate the possible presence of a Russian black ops team on a mission to steal United States next-generation technology. The resulting violent confrontation triggers a global search for the stolen technology and threatens to pit the US against China in a looming shadow war and technology race. As Logan and John - joined by the chief of the CIA's Special Operations Group, Cole Matthews - battle their way through Spain and the Mediterranean and ultimately across Sudan, an imminent threat arises at home that FBI deputy director Mike Benson must face and determine if it is part of the deadly global conspiracy.

Oath of Honor is an intense and gripping follow-up to former marine Matthew Betley's "brilliantly conceived" (Clive Cussler) Overwatch and solidifies his place among the greatest contemporary thriller writers.

A light read with good action.

Overall this book is not too bad. There's lots of action and this would be a good beach read/listen. Having said that the book is overly cliche ridden. The main characters are, of course, great at everything and move through the story giving one wise crack after another. In the end, while a thriller, it leaves one happy that, not only has good triumphed over evil, but the book has ended.

Good story but with ill-timed military banter.

A good action spy thriller with a suspenseful plot that is unfortunately interrupted by ill-timed military banter that that would be more appropriate before or after the critical dramatic moments the humor all too often shows up at.

Save your Time & Money

I normally like this series from this author. IF all authors are bound to write at least ONE Dud in their lives/careers. This was certainly a Dud for Bentley.

Matthew Betley does it again!

First off, this is not just an amazing story or book, but the performance by George Newbern is some of the best I've ever heard. This thriller is nonstop action, in the narrator couldn't convey it any better. Matthew Betley is one of the best thriller authors we have today. I listened to his last book, Overwatch, over 30 times. Buy this book or audiobook today! You won't regret it.

I love this Narrator!

What made the experience of listening to Oath of Honor the most enjoyable?

A good/ not good Narrator can make or break a book. I love this narrator and could listen to him all day. Suspenseful story helps.

Excellent book!

This book is right up there with Daniel Silva, Brad Thor and Lee Child. Keeps you on your toes until the last minute (audiobook) or page (book).

Definitely worth the purchase!!!!

Absolutely horrible performance and ridiculous writing

While the underlying story line was creative, the continued sarcastic banter between characters insult the reader. The gratuitous violence and encouragement for torture is childish and the feeble attempts to try and show any sort of emotion of the characters was ridiculous. DON’T WASTE your money on this book or this author.

Fantastic listen.

This was a great follow up to the first book in the series. I enjoyed every minute of it, there was action from the start and right up until the end. I hope this is the start of a very long series. The stile reminds me of vince flynn or brad thor and stephen leather. If you like any of these then give this series a try you wont be disappointed.
