Set in the aftermath of the “riveting…action-packed” (Joan Lunden, New York Times bestselling author) Oath of Honor and the discovery of a deadly global conspiracy, the president requests Logan West to form a covert task force with the mission to dismantle a nameless enemy in this “fast, hard-hitting, and impossible to put down” (The Real Book Spy) thriller.
With the full resources of the Justice Department, Intelligence Community, and the military (not to mention presidential pardons pre-signed), Logan must battle a secret organization with the connections and funding to rival many first-world nations. The sinister goal of this organization—to pit the United States against China in a bid to dismantle the world’s security and economy.
Back on US soil, Logan and his task force pursue the elusive foe from the woods of northern Virginia to the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, from suburban Maryland across the urban sprawl of Washington DC. The stakes have never been higher for Logan or America itself...
“Suspenseful, inventive, and relentless, Field of Valor unfolds at lightning pace” (Meg Gardiner, New York Times bestselling author) and is perfect for fans of the pulse-pounding works of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and Jack Carr.
In Betley's rousing third Logan West thriller (after 2017's Oath of Honor), West, the former Marine Force Recon platoon commander who heads the supersecret Task Force Ares, continues his fight against the secret cabal known as the Organization. In an ironic twist, shipping magnate Constantine Krawcyk-Kallas, the Organization's founder, asks West to help him root out and destroy a rogue element in his cabal. Someone within Kallas's inner circle, against his orders, has been orchestrating attacks against the United States in an effort to destabilize relations between the U.S. and China. Betley resorts to the usual genre tropes a global organization that wants to bring down the U.S. government, friends who turn out to be enemies, turncoats at the highest levels of government but his battle scenes, both in flashback and in the present, are tense and often shocking. They more than compensate for the constant banter and inane internal dialogue during quieter moments. Military action fans will be satisfied.
