Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller American Sniper, this “inspired by true events” thriller follows one of America’s most lethal marksmen as he leads the rescue of a downed female Special Ops pilot.

The President of the United States can’t decide how to respond to a classified video showing the Taliban’s brutal treatment of their captive—a female helicopter pilot of the Army’s elite Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Afraid that a botched rescue will further destabilize foreign policy and end his presidency, the Commander-in-Chief falters. But when the Special Ops community learns that one of their own is being tortured and will almost certainly be killed, no executive order will stop them from attempting a rescue mission.

In direct defiance of the President’s orders, Navy SEAL sniper Gil Shannon launches an audacious mission, with the support of elite soldiers and an enigmatic government figure, to infiltrate the tribal faction holding the captured pilot. A pulse-pounding battle ensues, pitching the entire force of the Taliban against the fearless and heroic American sniper. Packed with blistering action and real-life combat scenes, Sniper Elite: One Way Trip will pin readers to the edge of their seats until the very last sentence.

Synopsis:

The coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller American Sniper, the critically acclaimed memoir of SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, brings his talents to a riveting novel packed with the action, danger, and camaraderie that are part of daily life for these elite warriors—and introduces a new SEAL hero.

ONE TEAM. ONE SHOT. ONE WAY.

In direct defiance of the president’s orders, Navy Master Chief Gil Shannon, one of America’s most lethal SEAL snipers, launches his own bold mission comprised of SEAL Team Six and Delta Force fighters to free a female helicopter pilot being held and brutally mistreated by Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan.

The president fears a botched rescue would be a foreign policy disaster—and the end of his term. But once the special ops community learns that one of their own has been taken hostage, there is no executive order strong enough to stop them from going in—whatever the risks.
