Tier One (Tier One Thrillers Book 1) Kindle Edition
In a world violated by terror, the old lines have blurred. Meet the next generation of covert ops.
John Dempsey’s life—as an elite Tier One Navy SEAL named Jack Kemper—is over. A devastating terrorist action catapults him from a world of moral certainty and decisive orders into the shadowy realm of espionage, where ambiguity is the only rule. His new mission: hunt down those responsible for the greatest tragedy in the history of the US Special Ops and bring them to justice.
But how does a man torn between duty and revenge walk the line and preserve his soul?
As Dempsey struggles with the games of spies, the case propels him across the globe in a desperate effort to prevent a new, horrifying attack on American soil.
Once, John Dempsey followed orders blindly. Now he sees behind the curtain, and the security of the civilized world rests on one question: Can a Tier One Navy SEAL adapt and become the world’s most lethal spy?
“Page turner! Adrenaline rush! In Tier One, Andrews and Wilson have captured exactly what life in the SEAL Teams and on the front lines in the War on Terror is like. So vivid, I could smell the gunpowder. If you want to know what the world of the SEAL Teams is like, all you have to do is read this book. Bravo Zulu, Jeffrey Wilson and Brian Andrews.” —Commander M. M., USN, former SEAL operator
“In Tier One, authors and Navy veterans Jeffrey Wilson and Brian Andrews achieve the impossible goal of showing what it is really like in the dark world of covert operations. The characters are so real that I thought I might even know a few of them. The story is an amazing and exciting plot of terrorism and false flag international politics that is right from today’s headlines. If you want to know what it is like to be down range on a covert operation, read this book. This is the best military thriller ever.” —SEAL Master Chief J. S., former Tier One operator
“Tier One is one of those rare thrillers that combine blood-curdling action sequences with the steep emotional price paid by modern-day warriors behind all the gunfire. Brian Andrews and Jeffrey Wilson have pulled from their own special operations experiences in crafting a terrific tale that’s as riveting as it is wrenching, and, in John Dempsey, have created a lasting hero reminiscent of Mitch Rapp, Pike Logan, and Scott Harvath. Like the best from Flynn, Taylor, and Thor, Tier One serves up a relentless ride across uneven ground laden with pitfalls both mental and physical. The launch of the next major military-themed franchise.” —Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author
From the Publisher
Dempsey and his highly skilled team of operators are hunting terrorists with guns blazing and curse words and acronyms flying, which help to create a world and characters that feel authentic, that are so credible and rich. It was easy to become part of their mission, to forget that I was reading fiction created by two very talented veterans, Brian Andrews and Jeffrey Wilson. I laughed. I cried. I started to parrot the characters’ dialogue with clipped responses of “copy,” and I had to bite back more than one hooyah. SITREP: Tier One delivers.

Let me first send a big thank you to to the authors for including a glossary of all the acronyms used in the book!
Other reviews have discussed the plot so I won't go there. I was engrossed in this story from the very first page. The plot is, unfortunately, very realistic in this time in history. I experienced several different emotions during the reading of this book. I was fascinated by the plot twists and turns , saddened by the losses of life and the sacrifices of personal happiness made by the hero, fear because the plot was so realistic it could be a harbinger of events to come, and lastly, satisfaction at an ending well written.
This book is so well written that the use of acronyms did not seem excessive, a reader not familiar with military lingo can easily follow the story.
I am very much looking forward to reading more books by this writing duo.
The characters were clearly drawn and the dialog was authentic. Much of the dialog utilized military acronyms and initials to describe military jargon.. Note: there is an addendum in the back of the book that expands these, if you care.
The story ends in such a way that a follow up book is possible. I hope there is...
If you like heroes, complex, action-filled, and exciting reads, this book meets all these qualifications! Brilliant and imaginative,”Tier One” is very entertaining!

Thrilling action right from the start, gets you hooked straight away, followed by a short quiet spell and then once more into the action. The main character is the leader of a SEAL team and a veteran of special assignments with the scars to prove it. He doesn't stand any nonsense and has a bit of a dry sense of humour as well. The first part of the book is really a straight thriller but the rest of the book is then more a combination of espionage and thriller, with the thriller aspect becoming more dominant towards the end of the book. In his espionage role the lead character takes on a new identity and a new team.
I don't really want to give any of the plot away, because that would definitely be a big spoiler, but this was a very good read and if it wasn't for other commitments I would have just kept reading and finished it the same day. The end has a bit of a twist, and while the way is left wide open for a sequel (hopefully there will be one soon), it definitely comes to a conclusion.
For those who like such thrillers, it's a peach. If you don't, don't bother and your loss.
