"You've gotta have faith and hope." This story tells why


In a fast paced, action packed thriller, a female US helicopter pilot is captured and is being held by Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan. What is more gruesome is that the Taliban releases a film of the pilot being raped and then use this as the subject of a ransom demand.

There is only so much of a slap in the face that US SEAL Team 6 and Delta Forces fighters will accept.

Led my Navy Master Chief Gil Shannon, a force is assembled to rescue the downed pilot and punish the Taliban members for their crime.

To a former USAF member like myself, I found the book realistically told and included a cast of characters who seemed to be drawn from historical archives with their parts in the story well done.

The raid on the Taliban is done without Presidential authorization because the President seemed to fear on what a failed mission might mean.

The US Military was portrayed as characteristically brave and willing to do whatever is necessary to save a fallen comrade. The Taliban members were a bit prototypical with their arrogance and hatred for anything
associated with the US.

I liked your review on Amazon and also Tweeted I am a follower and e-mail subscriber.

This book sounds great. I knew a woman who was in charge of docking the planes over Afghanistan to re-fuel them and also a Navy Seal. I am thinking, maybe they should write books too!

Hope that you are doing well.
