Review by Booklist Reviews

The Delta Force commander who led the hunt for Bin Laden in Afghanistan immediately after the events of 9/11 pens a thriller set in the world of black ops. Kolt Raynor was the head of a unit in Pakistan when his team was ambushed, leaving him as the sole survivor. Washed up and considered a disgrace, Raynor finds solace in a bottle. Three years later, he is asked by his former commanders to journey back to the site of the tragedy. During the ambush, a helicopter with some of his men crashed, and everyone was considered dead. They actually survived and have been prisoners ever since. Raynor must retrain himself and clean up his act if he is to save his friends and fellow soldiers. The atmosphere and characters feel authentic in this promising debut. The character of Raynor is not a Superman, which gives the tale a shot of much-needed realism. Brad Thor and Vince Flynn fans have a new author to add to their reading lists. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Library Journal Reviews

A former Delta Force operator, Kolt Raynor made a bad decision that got his teammates killed or captured. Now he's set to redeem himself by finding the captives, held somewhere in Pakistan's badlands. Instead, he stumbles upon a nasty al-Qaeda plot. Former Delta Force troop commander Fury, the senior ranking military officer at the 2001 Battle of Tora Bora in Afghanistan, wrote the best-selling Kill bin Laden, about his assignment to do just that, so expect authentic detail.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Former Delta Force commander Fury, author of the nonfiction bestseller Kill Bin Laden, makes his fiction debut with a thriller that crackles with gut-wrenching action and authenticity. Kolt Raynor, a former Delta Force officer disgraced after a botched operation in Pakistan, can barely function as a private security guard because of his drinking. When evidence suggests that some of the men involved in Raynor's earlier failure are still alive, Raynor gets a chance to redeem himself—by scouting the mountain compound where the men are held captive in Pakistan. The impetuous, arrogant Kolt manages to not only fulfill his mission but also take out superior al-Qaeda and Taliban forces in a rescue effort that could break up a planned terrorist attack headed by Daoud al-Amriki, an American-born al-Qaeda leader. The open ending will leave readers eager to see more of Raynor and the warriors of Delta Force in the sequel. Agent: Scott Miller, Trident Media Group. (Feb.) [Page ]. Copyright 2011 PWxyz LLC

Meanwhile, a ruthless, unknown enemy is on his trail…and he will stop at nothing to make sure that Raynor’s mission isnot accomplished.An intense, gritty work of edge-of-your-seat suspense, Black Site is the first of what promises to be one of the most exciting fiction series of the new millennium.
