Brian Andrews and Jeffrey Wilson A quick recap, the series started with Tier One 2016 In a world violated by terror, the old lines have blurred Meet the next generation of covert ops Followed by, War Shadows 2017 From the deserts of Iraq, through the jungles of Guatemala, to the streets of suburbia, Dempsey and his Ember team race against time to stop a series of horrific and devious attacks against the homeland The third in the series, Crusader One 2017 Racing from Tel Aviv to Tehran, the elite American warrior and his formidable Israeli counterpart must forsake their backup in a capture or kill gambit that could turn into a suicide run Next, the novel which introduced me to this series, American Operator, 2018 An explosive, high stakes thriller of espionage and counterterrorism This novel earned itself a Blast Radius of a Dirty Bomb 9.25 10 on our review scale and turned me into a big fan of these two authors.Ember, America s premier black ops task force, operating in the shadows with an almost unlimited budget, led by former Navy SEAL John Dempsey Dempsey use to be a tool of the Joint Special Operations Command, fulfilling a role as one of America s most lethal special operators Now, he was a tactical spook, an operator playing dress up and taking on the identity the mission demanded This sounds very cool, what could go wrong in a world where such task force exists and are running around the globe preventing attacks and taking out bad guys.What if there was another similar entity, nothing like ideological terrorists they ve hunted majority of their lives, but someone organized, well funded, led by a tactician, a man living in shadows, hasn t been heard of in decades or photographed This individual would be the worlds most dangerous adversary This man, Arkady Zhukov is the man behind Spetsgruppa Zeta The evil Ember twin, with matching resources, capabilities, and autonomy This is the group responsible for the failed attack on the American base in Turkey that targeted the nuclear silo, this group was behind the kidnapping and torture of Amanda Allen, and it was them who attempted to assassinate the President of the United States and the Director of National Intelligence With a group of highly trained operators, or Zeta s Top in their ranks, is Zeta Prime Valerian Kobak, aka Malik, the legend he was currently occupying.Red Specter picks up about a month after the events of American Operator and nothing new is on task force Ember s agenda, their sole mission is finding Malik Grasping at straws and utilizing questionable means to get to him see s Dempsey and crew get into a jam that almost cost them their lives Adopting a known legend themselves and meeting with an arms dealer with close ties to Malik has Red Specter opens with a dangerous fire fight With spectacular action, and movie like action sequence that has you at the edge of your seat The biggest highlight however is Grimes, call sign God, behind the scope of her Heckler Koch M110A1 sniper rifle she preferred This Compact Semi Auto Sniper System CSASS has a 16 inch long barrel and weighs in at 8.7 pounds, it utilizes a 7.62 51 NATO round and has an effective range of 800 meters and muzzle velocity of 783 meters per second Grimes utilized her known skills and sends some death down range in this battle.Next we have Zeta Prime, Valerian Currently running around as Malik, his adopted legend He s described as Dempsey s twin Formidable, strong, fast, and just as determined As Zeta Prime, he s the best of the best, as this designator isn t handed out, it s earned It took him ten years to ascend to the top of the field operations hierarchy In this organization, there are others who are yearning for the top spot Valerian makes it clear he wouldn t give it up as long as his heart is beating but being Zeta Prime is the top of their food chain and there are always people wanting that crown What makes Andrews and Wilson stand out among other thriller writers is their perspective on the bad guy In the Tier One series, you get to know the bad guys just as intimately as the good guys You know what drives them, what their goal is, what their personal lives are almost as if they were the main character In Red Specter, Malik is an emotional mess Having been bested by Dempsey, he s working under a renewed determination to beat the American Operator that made him come apart, psychologically and emotionally.The fifth novel in the Tier One series by Andrews and Wilson is their best one yet, earning itself a Blast Radius of a Nuclear Bomb Red Specter starts with immediate action and it never stops With fire fights, close quarters combat, hand to hand fights all over the world, including Russia and the U.S Utilizing new, state of the art gear, suspense, action, surprises and top notch writing Red Specter is among the very best thrillers 2019 has to offer, I highly recommend you pre order this gem and add it to your reading list While it works just fine as a standalone novel, the series as whole is fantastic and if you haven t read them yet, you would be in for a treat

    I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of Red Specter and I have nothing but great things to say about it This book has everything you want in a military thriller high level operators, clandestine units fighting it out against each other while racing against the clock, high level moles that need to be flushed out, and tons of action where no one is safe It starts with a bang and never lets up Incredibly fast paced it s near impossible to put down as you are dying to know what happens ne I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of Red Specter and I have nothing but great things to say about it This book has everything you want in a military thriller high level operators, clandestine units fighting it out against each other while racing against the clock, high level moles that need to be flushed out, and tons of action where no one is safe It starts with a bang and never lets up Incredibly fast paced it s near impossible to put down as you are dying to know what happens next I don t want to spoil the book, so I won t talk about the plot in detail All I will say is it s a wonderfully crafted story pitting an elite clandestine US counter terror unit against an equally covert and capable Russian unit And while it s action packed with a large body count, the plot also has depth with several twists that keep you guessing until the end While this is a series and picks up shortly after the prior book ends, you can still dive into Red Specter without the benefit of having read the rest of the series The authors do a great job of building depth in the characters if you re familiar with them, while at the same time giving new readers the critical info they need to get caught up quickly Dempsey is one of the great kick ass operators in the genre, but the supporting characters are also quite strong with different personalities and add a ton to the story.I highly recommend this book, especially if you re a fan of authors like Mark Greaney and Matthew Betley You won t be disappointed
