Publisher's Summary

Jake Keller finds himself in a familiar position - on the run for his life and desperate to find the shadowy figures behind a global conspiracy.

CIA agent Jake Keller and his partner, Curt Roach, are in Yemen on an important mission. They've been tipped off to a secret meeting of top al Qaeda leaders. The plan is to interrupt the meeting with a few unexpected visitors - a pair of Hellfire missiles from an orbiting drone. But the drone stops responding to their signals and soon disappears over the horizon. When next seen, the drone is attacking innocent pilgrims in Mecca. 

Jake and Curt are staggered. The US government is desperate to disavow this atrocity. Who better to blame than a couple of rogue CIA agents? With all the governments of the Middle East looking for them and no help from their own side, they are in a desperate race to stay ahead of the mob and find out who's actually behind the crime.

Very, very creative plot!

Author David Ricciardi's first novel was Warning Light was an outstanding espionage thriller. It also began the Jake Keller series. ROGUE STRIKE, the second novel in the Jake Keller series is even better. If you like the work of Jack Carr, Brad Thor, Mark Greaney, Ben Coes, Vince Flynn, etc., you will enjoy this series. Jonathan Davis narrates superbly.

Phenomenal follow up

I love book 1 in the Jake Keller series, and book 2 was even better. I think that David Ricciardi is cementing himself as one of the newest and best authors in the thriller genre. This book was fast-paced, had great action scenes, and had a plot line that was all too believable. Let me put it this way, it dealt with Iran. He couldn't have predicted it better. I was floored by how good this book was, and I will indulge in it over and over again.

Jonathan Davis is one of the best in the business. I am used to his first-person narrations, but this was incredible. I can't recommend this book/series enough. Keep it up, David. Please don't quit this series. It's amazing!

Fantastic!

I loved it! The book reminded me of Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney, lots of different moving parts all over the globe, intricate plots and twists that all come together in a big bang!
I loved every minute of it and was very sorry when it was finished.
I went looking for more of David Ricciardi's books, only to realise this was his 2nd book!
This new author has got a fantastic career ahead of him!

Reminds me of Tom Clancy at his best

Good writing, character development and international intrigue. Maybe not the scope of a Tom Clancy Jack Ryan Universe book but a great start.

Not as good as Book 1

After loving Book 1, this was a huge come-down for me. It was so much longer, sometimes unnecessarily, I thought. I liked bits of it, so soldiered on, but I've now abandoned it right near the end. I just don't care what happens or how it turns out. Usually you want to know at least that. I don't. The lead person won't die and the 'world' won't come to an end, so to speak (to not give a spoiler). He would return to characters or not, and it seemed arbitrary. I guess there is just a fine line between an exciting story and it just not working, kind of like when you get a movie sequel and it doesn't live up to the original. I doubt I'll read any further books by this author.
