A relentless action thriller from bestselling author Henry Brown.
"You can take a man out of special operations, but you can't take SpecOps out of the man." That's a cliche you might hear in elite military circles. It has many connotations--among them is the idea is that operators have become members of an unofficial brotherhood which lasts a lifetime, including civilian life.
Years after the covert Sudan mission that forged just such a brotherhood among "Rocco's Retreads," Tommy Scarred Wolf's biological family falls into a predicament so severe that it's going to require the combined skills of his adopted SpecOps family to give him even a puncher's chance to rescue them.
Older and slower, but no less loyal to their warrior-brother, the Retreads answer the call: Former SEAL commander Dwight "Rocco" Cavarra; Delta Force veteran Jake McCallum; and unflapable sniper Leon Campbell. Joining the team are Tommy's son, Gunther, and Tommy's old buddy from Special Forces, Josh Rennenkampf.
Arrayed against the Retreads are modern day pirates, human traffickers, and a secret black ops team of killers orchestrating nasty (and deadly) surprises in the shadows. There's something far more sinister than just "white slavery" going on here, and it's about to ram these men through a crucible which will test their mettle...as well as their loyalty to each other.
Whether in military fiction like Hell and Gone, or pulp throwback men's adventure like Tier Zero, the Retreads bring smoke and take names.
