“A high-energy tale that unfolds at a machine-gun pace…Betley has become essential reading.” —Booklist
A global conspiracy threatens America’s position in the current balance of power in this “story of action, history, and secrets that is as imaginative as it is compelling” (Steve Berry, #1 New York Times bestselling author) from the author of Overwatch.
Roughly two years after the events of Overwatch, Logan West and John Quick are sent to Alaska to investigate the possible presence of a Russian black ops team on a mission to steal American next-generation technology. The resulting violent confrontation triggers a global search for the stolen technology and threatens to pit the United States against China in a looming shadow war and technology race. As Logan and John—now joined by the chief of the CIA’s Special Operations Group, Cole Matthews—battle their way through Spain, the Mediterranean, and ultimately, across Sudan, an imminent threat arises at home that FBI Deputy Director Mike Benson must face and determine if it is part of a deadly global conspiracy.
As New York Times bestselling author Kyle Mills raves, “Betley continues to turn the screws with the relentless action, unbearable tension, and terrifying threats that we all loved in Overwatch. With Oath of Honor, he cements his position as one of the genre’s new stars.”
Betley's exciting sequel to 2016's Overwatch takes series heroes Logan West and John Quick, investigators in a specialized FBI task force, to the Aleutians. They are hunting down members of a Russian black ops team. The Russians are seeking to steal technology code-named ONERING, a new U.S. weapons system that has the ability to hijack any space satellite. The theft is the plan of Namir Badawi, the head of Sudan's internal security division, who's determined to humiliate the United States and bring about glory to Sudan as part of a new world order. From Alaska, Logan and John pursue the bad guys around the globe, always one step behind Namir and Maj. Gang Lau, his Chinese spy henchman. Betley's fight scenes are among the best in the genre, but overuse of internal dialogue and unfunny banter between the principals slow the pace and add a cartoonish character to the writing. Still, readers willing to suspend some disbelief and put up with all the wisecracks will find the action diverting enough to look forward to future installments.
