Lieutenant Jack Grant is at a loss. Second-in-command of a compact Special Forces fireteam, the others have disappeared in some mysterious mission. It means he’s made it onto somebody’s blacklist, and as if things couldn’t be worse, things are bad with his new wife.
Cut off from his unit, left on the base to catch up with paperwork, his service life has hit the buffers. When they assign him to lead a training mission for a bunch of National Guardsmen newly arrived in Afghanistan, he begins to wonder what it’s all about. As an Army Ranger Lieutenant operating inside a hostile environment, he should be hunting down and killing the enemy, not acting as a nursemaid to a bunch of rookies.
He meets up with his new command, and they travel to Ghazni FOB. The buzz is that an American soldier, Private Danny Dale, has been taken prisoner by a notorious Taliban warlord and butcher who executes his prisoners. His wife, a nurse, accompanies the rescue mission to give medical aid if necessary. Instead, she is captured and spirited out of the country into Pakistan. When he discovers her fate, Grant does not hesitate to go after her. Arrested by MPs, he shoves them aside and follows a path laid out clearly as if it was the Yellow Brick Road.
Accompanied by his best friend, Corporal Sean Kennedy, and the other members of his unit, he illegally crosses the border into Pakistan. Every hand is stacked against him, including the Taliban and their stooges, the Pakistanis. Even someone on his side is selling information on his every movement to the enemy. Grant presses on against massive odds, leaving behind ground soaked with blood and strewn with empty bullets.
Special Operations: Grant’s Rescue is an incredible story of tough, violent men fighting the Taliban, the Pakistanis, and certain members of the United States Army. At stake, an innocent private soldier and the girl he loves. A fight to the death. Many deaths. A full-length novel by the bestselling author of many Spec Ops books. These include the popular SEAL Team Bravo stories, Heroes of Afghanistan, Raider, Echo Six, and Devil's Guard titles.
