Tucked away in a remote corner of North Carolina's Fort Bragg, behind rows of razor wire and heavily armed guards, lies the headquarters of the nation's most elite counter-terrorism unit: the United States Army's 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta. Here, a brilliant new approach to combating terrorism has just been born. Its codename: The Athena Project. The novels will follow an elite team of female warriors from their recruitment as top-level athletes, through their training, to their deployment on some of the most exciting and dangerous international assignments the fiction world has ever seen. Brad Thor's listeners will be electrified as he employs his vast knowledge of covert operations and military intrigue to bring to life his most heart-pounding, globe-trotting thrillers yet.
Great thriller and very entertaining.
Picked up the audio book to listen to it while driving 5 hours and the trip flew by. I did not want to get out of the car after I arrived. I would describe it as fast action, tense situations, international intrigue and entertaining. It has military style violence and mild adult language that should not be offensive to most adult readers as the language was used to highlight the intensity of the situation. The narrator does an excellent job with the voices and personalities so that you know who is speaking instantly. The premise of the situation is a little far fetched however if you let that slide (as this is a work of fiction), the advanced technology shows the potential power of the technology and how it can be used for good or evil. I did not need coffee on my late evening drive as it kept me awake all the way!
The review sounds exciting. I must buy!
