Publisher's Summary

The explosive audiobook thriller series written by Nicholas Irving, New York Times best-selling author of The Reaper and star of Fox's American Grit.

American hero, or unhinged vigilante?

In Reaper: Ghost Target, Vick "The Reaper" Harwood is an esteemed sniper with a record kill count - 33 kills in 90 days - when he is knocked out under mortar attack in Afghanistan. He wakes up back in the United States with little memory of what happened, his spotter and gun both unrecovered from the battlefield. Harwood has resigned himself to slowly picking up the pieces of his life, training Special Forces snipers in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and starting a promising relationship with an Olympic medalist named Jackie.

But when a series of assassinations start occurring in the area, Harwood can't explain why he just happens to be nearby for each killing - or how a sniper rifle that matches the description of the one he lost seems to be involved. His memory of the past few days is hazy and full of blackouts, and even he has to wonder, is he being framed? Or is he the killer?

As Harwood runs from the authorities, his girlfriend falls off the radar, his missing spotter resurfaces, and the assassinated men are outed as drug and sex traffickers. Nothing is adding up. Harwood realizes he has to unravel this mystery, and fast, or find himself paying the ultimate price for crimes he may not have committed.

Too much knowledge CAN be Hazardous to your Life!

You might see this book and think "Wow, a sniper book written by a sniper!" Except this book is so much more then that. This is a military/mystery/thriller/suspense with the protagonist (Vic Harwood) being a sniper! This book is super fast paced with plenty of action. While in Afghanistan he believes his spotter was killed and he was knocked unconscious. He has no memory of what happened but since back in the states some strange things have begun to happen. His girlfriend was expected to give a presentation and never showed. She also hasn't answered any of his text messages. He thinks someone has been slipping some kind of drug into the bottles of drink he likes. He realizes that he has periods he doesn't remember it seems to be happening after he has one of his sports drinks. The next thing he knows two generals are assassinated and he's being sought as a person of interest. He knows he's being framed but has no idea who or why. Meanwhile because of social media his picture is all over the internet and his face is recognized every where he goes. When he rescues a 14 year old prostitute from rape and murder even she recognizes him and can't wait to tell people all about him. But Harwood's memory starts coming back and people are scared. Harwood knows too much about drug and human trafficking out of Afghanistan and who's behind it. Jeff Gurner does an outstanding job narrating. This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!! If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

too much racial bs

the story could have been great but the author decided to remind you that the main character is black 16 times. throws out support for black lives matter and disparaging to the police. I do not recommend it.

Great debut thriller fiction by Irving

The only thing that kept me from giving the narrator 5-stars was that he mispronounced the contributing authors name! Other than that, a fast-paced novel that I flew through!

I always rate, but have never reviewed...

...until now. Nicholas, you hit a home run with your first fiction! I hope you're working feverishly on book two, as I write this review. I can hardly wait to see what happens next! This book gripped me from the start. I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning listening; I just couldn't put it down. In spite of a very heavy workload at the office, I found a way to finish this book within 24 hours. Great story, well written, loved the characters and Jeff Gurner's narration was superb! I highly recommend reading/listening to Ghost Target. Do yourself a favor, use the credit and get this book now! You'll be glad you did.

narrator breathing into the microphone was very

I couldn't enjoy this story because with every sentence the reader breathed into the microphone distracting from the suspense of the story. Very Irritating after a few chapters and returned to the title
