Kill Zone
paperback

An American general is captured in the Middle East by terrorists who threaten to behead him. But moments before he is rendered unconscious, the general notices that his captors speak American English. What’s going on? Gunnery-Sergeant Kyle Swanson is vacationing in the Mediterranean when he receives orders to mount a top-secret mission to rescue the general. But as the Marines prepare to land in the desert, they fall victim to a terrible accident. Swanson, the only survivor, then discovers they were flying into a deliberate ambush. But how could the enemy have details of a mission known only to a few top US government officials? Swanson takes off alone to locate the captured general and realizes he is fighting a particularly ruthless enemy: American mercenaries working for a very high-level group within the White House, whose hidden goal is total control of the US military. The fate of the captured general and that of the nation now rest solely in Swanson’s hands.

Decent sniper story, in-the-field action is pretty captivating, but the story is a bit too much look-at-me-Hollywood!

Decent

Dead Shot
paperback
400 pages
In Baghdad's Green Zone, an Iraqi scientist is murdered just before he is to reveal the monstrous secret weapon that Saddam Hussein took to his grave. The assassination is the work of a mysterious sniper called Juba. Originally trained by the British, he now works with a twisted mastermind determined to wrest leadership of the Islamic terrorist world from Al Qaeda. Kyle Swanson, once the top sniper in the US Marine Corps, has become the key member in a secret operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Juba tests the new weapon by killing hundreds of people at a Britsh royal wedding in London, Swanson is assigned to hunt down his old special ops rival. Fast-paced and gripping, Dead Shot has all the hallmarks of a new military thriller blockbuster!!

TEchnically good, but the plot is rather over-the-top and far-fetched, especially the whole sniper rivalry feels a little forced.

Decent effort
