“When I depart this mortal coil, I hope to end up wherever Ari Fliakos does so I can spend select portions of eternity listening to him read Dalton Fury novels – of which I hope will by then be many.” ―The Star-Ledger
"Relentless action a quality read for fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor." "Booklist"
Former disgraced Delta Force commander Kolt "Racer" Raynor has earned his way back into The Unit after redeeming himself during an explosive operation at a black site in Pakistan. But he is about to face his deadliest challenge yet.
"Step aside, Jack Ryan Kolt Raynor is the true hero of the new millennium." James Rollins, "New York Times" bestselling author
The most-wanted man in the world, American al Qaeda commander Daoud al-Amriki, and his handpicked team of terrorist operatives, have acquired stores of Russian-built, shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) from ex--Libyan spies in Cairo. Their mission: to infiltrate the United States and take down American aircraft. The country's best are tasked with stopping them. But when a SEAL Team 6 mission to take down al-Amriki goes wrong, Racer and his Delta Force team find themselves front and center as Amriki and his terrorists work their way closer to America. And time is running out

Allerdings ist jedes Buch dem anderen ähnlich, auch wenn die Gegend und die Gegner wechseln. Das Handlungsschema bleibt zusehr das gleiche. Obschon also gut geschrieben, hat man beim zweiten, besonders beim dritten Buch dann öfters den Eindruck eines "déjà vu" !
Aber ansonsten bleibt das Ganze schon unterhaltsam, da die Themen aus den Medien schon in grossen Zügen bekannt sind Also Zeitvertreib aber keine Lösung der Weltprobleme !!

HOWEVER... while the author's raw talent is clearly on display, I'm a little surprised he still exhibits the rough edges of an FNG author: some of the characters are woefully underdeveloped, a few characters who figure prominently for a few chapters -- and *are* well developed -- disappear suddenly without a trace, and the climax of the story happens literally at the end and there is no resolution phase (Fury did this with his previous book too -- and no, the epilogue of Black Site was a prelude to this book, not the resolution to the last one). From my perspective, this lack of resolution leaves me somewhat frustrated at the end of an otherwise excellent book which is why I'm only giving it four stars.
Dear Mr. Fury: as a former operator you know the value of teamwork and letting folks who are specialists in skills you don't have to do the tasks you cannot. Please, please, *PLEASE* team up with an experienced fiction writer and/or writing coach who can help you take your skills from "pretty darn good" to "tier one" before you publish your next book.
The book does have action and is fast paced, but there was nothing about the book that would tempt me to read it again. It was all black and white. The good guys were good, the bad guys bad. There wasn't anything that sets it apart from any other generic, fictional combat genre book.
You want extreme, realistic, special operator action--Dalton Fury delivers in Tier One Wild. From page one, Mr. Fury takes you on the ultimate Delta Force thrill ride at breakneck speed. Hold on to your seat readers, you're in for Mr. Toad's wild ride.
Tier One Wild is a saga continuation of Mr. Fury's first Delta Force book Black Site, with all the usual suspect returning for more covert action. Kolt "Racer" Raynor, legendary Delta Force (DF) operator, is back to continue his assault on radical Muslim extremists. In this novel the DF operators hunt, track and are tasked to recover and/or destroy 50+ stolen Soviet made Libyan "Grinch" SA-24 Surface to Air Missiles (SAM). The book opens with Racer's return to Delta Force after being forced to leave for questionable excessive command exuberance which earned him identification as "persona non grata" in the spec ops world: The proverbial spec ops kiss of death. He is allowed to return after a 3 year banishment, older and wiser. Still, Racer, as he is known in the spec ops world, is a hard charging leader with an aggressive "can do" attitude that he has learned to temper and reign in. Tier One Wild is indeed one amazing, realistic wild ride as Racer and The Boys get the job done anyway they can.
No gratuitous sex, language, or violence. Although there is an amazing amount of covert combat action, this is NOT Delta Force gone wild. Rather, it is a realistic, well throughout novel on how Operators work in the shadowy world of cover special operations.
Character development was superb and in many ways carried this novel. Mr. Fury did an outstanding job of developing ALL the major players, warts and all. I liked how he introduced a female into the DF world--not as a love interest but rather as an equal. I also enjoyed how the author tied in the macho male frustrations, egos, and chest thumping while still keeping it under control. Lots of testosterone flowing but in the end The Mission comes first. Another interesting aspect of Mr. Fury's writing is how he brings in the peripheral support players to give the story needed depth. As a combat vet I can tell you it's not always about the tip of the spear but who makes, hones and brings the spear that is important too. For every person who flies the plane, shoots the gun, or sails the ship there are 10 quiet, unheralded support people who help makes the mission go.
Solid read. 5 star if you enjoy realistic covert operations. I am happy to see yet another great writer enter the literary action thriller ranks. Looking forward to the next Dalton Fury novel.
