Book 1, The Green Beret Series - The Green Berets

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

From NY Times Bestselling Author, Amazon top 25 Author, former Green Beret and West Point Graduate, Bob Mayer. 

What if US Army Green Berets led by Dave Riley must take on not only criminal drug traffickers but also betray their own government? 

A US Army Special Forces team carrying sterilized weapons and unmarked uniforms is on its way to Colombia. The mission: conduct covert, unilateral raids to destroy cocaine processing laboratories. 

Of course nothing is as it seems especially once the CIA gets involved. Throw in an Israeli mercenary, betrayal and double-dealing in Washington and the team soon finds itself wondering what the real mission is. 

“A scorcher of a novel. Mayer had me hooked from the very first page.” Stephen Coonts 

“Exciting and authentic! Author Mayer, a Green Beret himself, gave me a vivid look at the world of the Army’s Special Forces. His portrayal of Green Beret operations and techniques takes you deep into the world of Special Operations.” W.E.B. Griffin.

From Publishers Weekly
When Colombia secretly requests U.S. aid against the drug cartel, a Special Forces A-Team becomes the "eyes" guiding gunships and helicopters--the "hammer"--against jungle cocaine-processing labs. Then treachery leaves four Green Berets dead and one in the hands of the "Ring Man," deadliest of the drug lords. Special Forces warrant officer Riley and CIA agent Kate Westland are sent in to kill the Ring Man and rescue the prisoner. Their slim chances sink to near-zero when Washington pulls the plug on the mission. But before his people are abandoned, a veteran Special Forces colonel still has a few cards to play. In his first novel (launching a series), former Green Beret Mayer successfully establishes the nuanced differences among U.S. Special Operations units: rangers, Delta Force and Special Forces. But his story line jumps unconvincingly from covert infiltration mission to secret agent-type assassination to commando raid. Descriptions of the tools of unconventional warfare are static, and characters, with the exception of agent Westland, never achieve full dimension.

From Library Journal
A thriller that delivers in all areas--plot, suspense, authenticity, and pace. Riley, a Special Forces man, is sent to one of a series of invasions of Colombia to destroy cocaine processing plants. After two successes and one failure, he is assigned to terminate a drug lord. His companion is a woman, Westland, a CIA agent. The intrigue and plotting of the military and various government agencies, in the United States and Colombia, and the incredible Colombian corruption are interwoven into a minor masterpiece of technology and suspense. The climax will have the reader yearning for more nails to bite. A first novel by a former Green Beret, this is not to be missed by fans of the genre.

Awesome !

This was an extremely fun and enjoyable read. A page turner for me, couldn't wait to see what happened next. It's an older one but well worth the read if you enjoy military based stories.
