“Take my word for it, James Reece is one rowdy motherf***er. Get ready!” —Chris Pratt, star of the #1 Amazon Prime series The Terminal List
A Navy SEAL has nothing left to live for and everything to kill for after he discovers that the American government is behind the deaths of his team in this ripped-from-the-headlines political thriller that is “so powerful, so pulse-pounding, so well-written—rarely do you read a debut novel this damn good” (Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author).
On his last combat deployment, Lieutenant Commander James Reece’s entire team was killed in a catastrophic ambush. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government.
Now, with no family and free from the military’s command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he’s learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward avenging the deaths of his family and teammates. With breathless pacing and relentless suspense, Reece ruthlessly targets his enemies in the upper echelons of power without regard for the laws of combat or the rule of law.
“Told with a deft hand and a keen eye for detail, The Terminal List…is explosive and riveting” (Kevin Maurer, coauthor of No East Day) and is perfect for fans of Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Stephen Hunter, and Nelson DeMille.
When Lt. Cmdr. James Reece of SEAL Team Seven, the hero of Carr's thrilling if uneven first novel, leads his men into an ambush in Khost Province, Afghanistan, 36 SEALs, 28 Rangers, and four aircrew members in his unit are killed. After Reece figures out that it was a trap perpetrated by high-level American government officials, he vows to kill everyone involved. He doubles his resolve after the murder of his wife and three-year-old daughter at their home in Coronado, Calif. Reece has a list of 12 who must die, and he checks the names off one by one. Carr, a retired U.S. Navy SEAL, knows his weaponry, and each kill is an interesting set-up. On the other hand, the avenging SEAL is an overly familiar scenario, and the few plot twists add nothing new. Patches of overheated prose don't help: "He would die avenging his troop and his family. It would be a good death: a warrior's death." Still, Carr shows a lot of promise, and fans of military action fiction will look forward to his next book.)
