“Jack Carr and his alter-ego protagonist, James Reece, continue to blow me away.” —Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mission Critical
In #1 New York Times author Jack Carr’s follow-up to The Terminal List, former Navy SEAL James Reece’s skill, cunning, and heroism put the US government back in his debt and set him on another path of revenge.
When a string of horrific terrorist attacks plagues the Western world during the holiday season, the broader markets fall into a tailspin. The attacks are being coordinated by a shadowy former Iraqi commando who has disappeared into Europe’s underground. The United States government has an asset who can turn the Iraqi against his masters: James Reece, the most-wanted domestic terrorist alive.
After avenging the deaths of his family and team members, Reece emerges deep in the wilds of Mozambique, protected by the family of his estranged best friend and former SEAL Team member. When a series of events uncovers his whereabouts, the CIA recruits him, using a Presidential pardon for Reece and immunity for the friends who helped him in his mission of vengeance.
Now a reluctant tool of the United States government, Reece travels the globe, targeting terrorist leaders, unraveling a geopolitical conspiracy that exposes a traitorous CIA officer, and uncovering a sinister assassination plot with worldwide repercussions.
A high-intensity roller-coaster race against time, True Believer is “one of this year’s hottest thrillers, and a perfect fit for fans of Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and Daniel Silva” (The Real Book Spy).
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In this gripping thriller, American lives are in danger and one of the nation’s most wanted becomes the country’s best hope. After taking the law into his hands to avenge a fellow Navy SEAL, James Reece went on the lam, but when terrorists launch a plot to destabilize the Western economy, he gets a chance to atone for his crime, since only he has the knowledge and connections to stop them. Packed with explosive action and the kind of nitty-gritty details that only a former SEAL like author Jack Carr could deliver, True Believer hits the ground running at breakneck speed. Narrator Ray Porter has the perfect voice to keep us glued to this tense listen, making the most of every explosive twist in James’ journey from disgrace to redemption. This could be a great workout listen.
True believer by Jack Carr
Entertaining with good action. Author is clearly a detail-oriented man which comes across beautifully in his writing.
Another Great Read
Jack brings his a game with every book he writes. I could not put this book down. I can’t wait to read Savage Son to see how Reese’s store continues!
Detailed and intense writing made for a good audiobook that I could listen to while busy, but the authors heavily opinionated statements made it a little bumpy. From all the characters calling each other “brother” to the political opinions heavily placed in the book it definitely reads like smut for political conservatives. There is also significant branding which I found super strange, no one can use anything in these books without the brand name being prominently displayed. All in all a well written book worth a listen even if the characters are heavily stereotyped.
