This action-packed story kept me engaged from beginning to end. American Foreign Affairs Agent Amelia Lenner is only supposed to be on a diplomatic mission, but when the Jildiz, the daughter of the President of Kyrgyzstan, is kidnapped right in front of her, Amelia makes a dramatic rescue. A military team is sent to track and recover the two women, who are now on the run from unknown bad guy amidst rioting crowds with a penchant for arson. The authors give great attention to detail, providing believable background and explanations for all the events that take place.

Even the families the soldiers have left behind are fleshed out, giving the reader an inside look at the sacrifices made not only by the military, but by their wives and extended family. Some touching moments involving that. The dialogue between the characters is witty and entertaining, but all of the American characters seem to have the same quick sense of humor, so aside from some other distinguishing characteristics, it was hard to keep track of who was cracking the latest joke.

My only other complaint is probably a matter of taste; I realize this is a military novel, and war is ugly and violent, but I could have done without the graphic descriptions of blood and brain matter splattering, an image that was revisited multiple times. There were several similar instances, like the description of how a head sounded when being crushed by a fire extinguisher, that sort of thing. The good thing, though, is that the characters don't enjoy maiming and killing; they do it only when absolutely necessary, so this is a violent book with a conscience. If an honest presentation of killing and hand-to-hand combat doesn't bother you, this story is worth reading.
J. J. is now team leader with two new members assigned. A sudden mission to Kyrgyzstan tests his new role and the cohesion of the team. A female Foreign Affairs Officer is caught up in the political upheaval of Kyrgyzstan, running and hiding from "bad guys". Excellent read, highly enjoyed!!
I selected this book for the location, to learn more about a distant land a friend's son had lived in for a year. I never expected to be captured by the characters, truly great warriors, men and women and a story that crosses cultural divides.

While I'm no military expert, the action seemed realistic and reminded me of the Bobby Lee Swagger stories. Everyone of the main and secondary characters were well developed and believable

I really loved this series and the characters, and this was the best one of the three I have read so far, I couldn't put it down. A little proofing should have been done, more so on this book than the other two. There was one place that I think he changed, but accidentally left a little portion in the text. It was confusing at first, but I quickly realized what had happened.
I have really enjoyed reading Jeff and Alton's writing. This was my second novel written by them. It was suspensive and fast moving with enough romance to keep you guessing. I enjoyed revisiting some of the characters from "Blaze of Glory". If you like an action story with some fun and romance thrown in, you will enjoy this novel.
Great mystery without all the foul language that seems to be second nature to some authors. Just shows the bad language is not necessary
to write a good book.
Awesome action filled book from start to finish. Hard to put down...Can't wait to read the next book.

Great portrayal of some of the difficult tasks our miltary and special ops face each day...and many that may never be known to the public.
