Publisher's Summary

The next audiobook in the explosive new thriller series by former special operations sniper and New York Times best-selling author of The Reaper.

A convoy of cars carrying several family members of the President’s cabinet to Camp David for “Family Day” is ambushed, killing and wounding wives, husbands, and children. 

Immediately in the aftermath, Vick Harwood watches a Facebook live feed of his former ranger buddy Sammie Samuelson’s apparent suicide and confession in his Thurmont, Maryland apartment, just one mile from Camp David. Remnants of a firefight are in the background: sniper rifle, rocket launchers, and ammunition. Simultaneously, an intruder breaks into Harwood’s house.  

Harwood arrives in Thurman to investigate the suicide and, with the help of attractive FBI agent Valerie Hinojosa, traces evidence left by Samuelson to a fiendish plot involving transnational terrorists and domestic political opponents. 

Meanwhile, the president wants retribution, and will stop at nothing to get it. Harwood joins Team Valid, whose mission is to kill the family members of terrorists and eliminate their seed from the earth. Team Valid, consisting of Hinojosa, Harwood, a Navy SEAL sniper, and a Marine Force Recon sniper, travels to Crimea, Iran, and Azerbaijan before realizing the mission is not what it seems. Harwood struggles to balance his orders with his sense of right and wrong - without losing his life in the process. As Samuelson is implicated in the Camp David ambush, it is a race to protect his remaining family and uncover the sinister plot in the homeland.

Adrenaline charged conspiracy...

When over twenty people are murdered at Camp David it is deemed a terrorist attract. The ambushed people included presidential cabinet members and secret service. Within minutes a live video is broadcast of Vick Harwood's friend and spotter taking his own life. Within hours Vick's friend (Sammie) is implicated in the attack.
Shorty after, a man in tactical gear breaks into Harwood's home and tried to kill him. Harwood is also known as the Reaper for his many sniper kills. One little guy is not going to take him down.
Was all of this for one target with the rest collateral damage or was everyone there actually supposed to die? And is it foreign or domestic?
Harwood is then sent on a bogus revenge mission not knowing that he too is a target. Harwood's adopted daughter is also targeted in order to get to him.
All the while Vick doesn't believe Sammie killed himself nor that he would commit this crime.
Back in the states Vick teams up with Sammie's sister but street and traffic cameras make it almost impossible for them not to be found.
Add in some underhanded politicians and gang members and what you have is an action packed nonstop conspiracy that keep you on the edge from beginning to end.
Brian Troxell does an outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Good but parts are predictable

I loved Nicholas Irving's debut novel, and his follow-up was quite good. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it as much as the first. The plot line seemed somewhat predictable, and you could forecast what was going to happen. There were also a lot of cliche points that were a distraction from the plot. I love Vick as a character, and I really hope to see him in upcoming novels in this series.

Not real original

This book appeared to be a mashup of some fiction writing overplayed on the current political environment with Trump, Clinton, and Comey as main characters. If you’re looking for a book to get away from the political rants of the left & right - this is not it.

Wow, just wow.

Talk about an epic book. Nic Irving out does himself with this installment. The action, the characters, the political overtones. This book seems like it could have been ripped from the headlines of today's news. Intrigue between political parties, espionage, double crosses, and all under the guise of patriotism. I highly, highly recommend this book. I can't wait for the next one.
