Publisher's Summary

A propulsive, high-stakes debut thriller where one extraordinary operator holds the key to saving the world from Armageddon. All he needs to do is stay alive.

Buried deep in the US defense and special forces architecture is an elite, ultra-black unit created expressly to prevent weapons of mass destruction from falling into the hands of terrorists and rogue regimes. Their covert, surgical strikes eliminate grave threats so the rest of America can sleep without fear. Until now.

After returning from a successful operation in Pakistan, the entire team is assassinated within 48 hours. Only their leader, Michael Garin, survives.

As the sole survivor and chief suspect of the attack, Garin finds himself on the run from Iranian intelligence operatives bent on tracking and killing him. Even Garin's own government appears to have turned against him, sending a lethal sniper from the vaunted Delta Force to eliminate the threat they think he's become.

With enemies coming at him from every direction, Garin's fight for survival becomes part of a larger conspiracy unfolding on the world's stage: a catastrophic attack - precipitated by escalating tensions in the Middle East - that will shift the balance of power and plunge the United States of America into oblivion.

Good start to a new series...

Peter Kirsanow is an author I've never heard of until recently. I came across this book after checking out listener pages of people I used to follow. I must say again how much I dislike the way Audible has redone the new listener page. I have written them and would like to suggest that others do so as well, maybe if they get enough complaints they will change this new format. One can only hope!
Anyway, back to the book. The few people who have left reviews have written absolutely glowing comments praising his book. Being almost obsessed with the mystery/thriller genre getting this was only a question of when.
The publisher's summary gives a good overview. This 13 1/2 hour book is so much more. The summary makes this sound like so many others in this genre and in a way it is. This is kind of interesting because through flashbacks he tells a story of how he came to be a fearless, Boy Scout terrorist killer.
Very enjoyable and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great espionage thriller from a new author!

It seems that protagonist Mike Garin is likely to join characters like Mitch Rapp, Jack Ryan, Court Gentry, Scot Harvath, Pike Logan, etc. as great lead characters in espionage thriller series. Based on TARGET OMEGA author Peter Kirsanow has written as strong a first novel in his Mike Garin series as the first novels of Flynn, Clancy, Greaney, Thor, or Taylor. Narration by Paul Michael is outstanding. I have purchased Second Strike which is the second novel in the series and will listen to it next. My thanks to Audible Listener Shelley whose reviews have once again led me to a terrific novel/series.

TARGET OMEGA has my highest possible recommendation!!

Great read with amazing and accurate detail

This could well be the start of an action packed series of adventures with the character of Mike Garin. Looking forward to next thriller.

Sometimes authors and readers create a new reality

My new hero, Michael Garin, is by his own description nothing more than a grunt in a specialized off the chart military operation. As the last 24 hours passed, his entire organization has been wiped out, and somehow the people that killed his crew has left him holding the bag. Now every government agency is hunting him, and if that's not bad enough, the best Army sniper in the world is trying to get him in his sights...in the story Mike will have his family threatened, friends either killed or nearly killed, a love interest of sorts kidnapped, and threatened.
Mike will work his way through Iranians Russians, Jews, and American villains, trying to stop the elimination of Israel, destruction of the American way of life, and figure out when, why, who, and where all of these bad things are coming from.
The book is pretty much no stopped action with lots of twists that will satisfy most readers I think.
Lots of action, lists of shooting, and lots of unanswered questions, so you know there is going to be at least one more book...
This is reality based not like a Joe Ledger book

Excellent Story and Charactets

The story deveopment is excellent and the cast of characters, both good and evil, is also well done. In addition, the geopolitical context of the story and emerging threat were both current and within the realm of possibility.

From a listener’s (rather than reader’s) perspective, I thought Paul Michael’s presentation of the characters’ voices was very good but his running narrative was occasionally a little too flat.

Finally, Target Omega ends with some unfinished business. However, I felt that Kirsanow reconciled enough to leave me satisfied while cleverly whetting my appetite more justice.
