This book is the second in this particular series by this writing duo. It can be read as a stand alone if you have not read the first in the series, but I always like starting a series at the beginning, that way you know the characters. However, this book is exciting enough, with enough explanation of the characters, that you can read it without having read the first. I guarantee you though, you will rush to pick up the first one and read that one as well.
I have been reading thrillers for years, starting with Frederick Forsyth and Robert Ludlum There is a whole new generation of military thriller writers getting the accolades they deserve, Flynn, Berenson, Greaney, Taylor....but I have to say, the duo of Andrews and Wilson are writing books that are not to be missed. The characters are very well developed, the action is non-stop and there are emotional roller coasters all through the books.
Give these books a chance if you like thrillers, I promise you will not be disappointed.
If you served and you were in combat, this book can take your right back into the action, so don't read it if you suffer from PTSD as I think it might trigger flashbacks. However If you were in combat and miss the adrenaline rush of surviving, War Shadows will make you feel alive again and back in the action. The story flows with tautness and plot twists aplenty and is one of the most realistic books on combat that I have ever read. The first book in the series has this same feel. I look forward to more books by these authors and, especially, more books in this series. Five stars, for real.
In the last book Jack was after what he thought was an Al-Queda group but it was in actuality an Iranian Be Vack group that was on a mission to Destroy any SEAL TEAM available. The SEALS were able to foil their plot( that time),but VEVACK was Not to be deterred. Their next target was the UNITED NATIONS in NYC!!! Jack and his team( including the FBI HRT THE) foil that plan as well, killing the older brother of the head of Ve Back( needless to say He was Pissed Off)! He vowed that he would kill the leader of team that had killed his older brother!!!!! He set in motion a trap that was devious in the extreme!! World was leaked that there was to be a meeting of the highest Al Queda members around the Middle East, a tease that could Not be ignored!! The SEALS were sent in to attack from the sea and from the mountains behind the villa where this meeting was to take place. The Iranians had troops replaced where they were supposed to attack. Jack had been injured in the attack on the UN and was not available to go on the attack, instead he was sent to the advanced TOC, where the Ve Vack had embedded a suicide vest wearing young man. When he got word of the arts k he was to blow himself up next to the TOC killing everyone in or near the building. Jack had just stepped out and walked about 50 yards away when the explosion went off, killing most of the people inside and a few outside. Jack was injured quite severely and advanced to GERMANY to recover.He was inducted into an OGA AS Mr. JOHN DEMPSY, where he became Operations Special Director. Jack found out that one of the Mujahideen that had killed two of his team members was coming out of hiding to embark Vackon a special operation inside the USA. Jack was after his ass!!! No-one was getting eye away with that!!! Jack traced him from Iraq to Guatamala where a Ve agent got Hezbollah to train Issis suicide squad to go into USA. Jack and friends took the training site apart kilWwwling most of the cadre, but finding out where they were supposed to enter.
While this book is 'fiction', it sounds very familiar. This book packs in the action non-stop. If you love the world of black ops written by people who know what they are actually talking about and aren't spouting off endorsements from SHOT show 2016, then this is a book you need to read.
While I love the action Brad Thor writes, he always has an agenda. Brad Taylor sometimes gets too bogged down in never ending surveillance scenarios. Joshua Hood and Scott McEwen don't have any new books out, and the Clancy novels are disjointed books relying on name recognition, Tier One is a nice book to read without feeling like your being 'spoken' too. You are along for the ride as Wilson and Andrews describe what's going on, your mind is able to fill in the rest. Only Steven Konkoly does this trick better. You can read the description of the story anywhere, but the parts I look for like: is the story believable? Yes. Told Well? Yes. Heavy action? Yes. Detailed down to the correct ammo an MP7A3 uses? Yes again. Worth a read and sure to be read again and again.

“Ember” is a small but well-funded team which is off radar, doing things the CIA, FBI, or even the military can’t do. Think of it of being like an early pre-politicised CIA, able to do things which modern politically correct organisations can’t. Jack “died” six months ago, but in reality he had cosmetic surgery to implement a disguise, and is now known as John Dempsey. Sadly, his wife and son think he’s dead. That’s the kind of commitment the team have towards Ember. Ember detects an unlikely cooperation by Iran/ISIS/Hezbollah to make terrorist attacks on the US homeland, and then have to work out their plans and foil the attacks.
This is a great story, well told, nicely plotted, with rounded characters. If you like Frederick Forsyth thrillers, you’ll love this.
The author's have seamlessly added new characters into the storyline and delivered yet another fantastic storyline outlining the world of terrorism and the secret warriors who fight against them.
This series of books seem to grab your attention and makes it very hard to put them down,I am now about to start reading the next in series and cannot wait to read the continuing story of John Dempsey and his shadow warriors.
