Kolt “Racer” Raynor is back in his Delta Force unit and hunting missing weapons from the overthrown Libyan government. In Tier One Wild Former officials from that regime are suspected of selling them to unsavory characters. At center stage are surface to air missiles that are a threat to commercial aircraft. The opening segment is about as harrowing an event as you’ll read in many of these type novels. Many in America feel somewhat safe as the weapons are on another continent, but sometimes bad things come home.
This book is action-packed and well written. Author Dalton Fury is a former Delta Force commander and I assume he puts a great deal of reality into his novels. I have often wondered about just how close the activities that take place in this novel come to a real event. I also like that he shares the healthy rivalry between the SEALs and Delta Force members.
As if lifted from the headlines this book deals with what has become a touchy subject as it involves Libya and weapons. Though it was published before the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya it sets the tone for what that part of the world was like. There are at least some reports that some of the Americans killed were in fact looking for weapons.
