Review by Booklist Reviews

Delta Force member Kolt Raynor can always be relied on to save the day while ticking off his superiors. He pulls off a miracle in Pakistan, but his boss wants to fire him for disobeying an abort order. When the SEALs ask him to help on a mission involving a terrorist who has access to a nuclear weapon, Raynor jumps at the chance. But can he take orders willingly when he's not in charge? Fans of larger-than-life military-thriller characters like Brad Taylor's Pike Logan should enjoy Raynor as well, even if he occasionally comes across as a bit too gruff. Fury has the knowledge to make special ops feel authentic, and it works. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

At the outset of Fury's exciting if slightly muddled third Delta Force novel (after Tier One Wild), Delta commander Maj. Kolt "Racer" Raynor is in Afghanistan hunting down terrorists—in particular, Haji Mohammed Ghafour, a Pashtun elder linked to real-life terrorist Ayman al-Zawahiri. Both men are considered dangerous to the American homeland, and intel shows that Ghafour is planning attacks on nuclear power plants in the U.S. When Kolt disobeys orders to rescue one of his team members on the mission, he gets kicked out of Delta. He soon joins an ultrasecret group called Tungsten, headquartered in Atlanta, where he takes on the job of defusing the terrorist plan to attack the nuclear plants. Several subplots vie for attention, and tighter editing would have made for a less confusing plot, but the action scenes make up for any perplexities. The upbeat ending points to Kolt being welcomed back to Delta and a new round of adventures. Agent: Scott Miller, Trident Media Group. (May) [Page ]. Copyright 2014 PWxyz LLC

Review by Publisher Summary 3

Delta Force operator Kolt Raynor must thwart a deadly terrorist plot in this globe-hopping special operations thriller in the New York Times bestselling seriesWhen SEAL Team Six killed Osama bin Laden, they pulled a treasure trove of intelligence on planned attacks on U.S. soil. Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda's new leader, is activating his most trusted (and deadliest) terrorists to carry out his newest plot: to detonate a bomb inside one of the sixty-four commercial nuclear power plants in the U.S. in an attack ten times worse than 9/11, causing radiological fallout that would kill hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans. The President wants answers quickly, and after Kolt Raynor saved his life a few months earlier, he knows Delta Force is fully capable. But Kolt is on the verge of getting forced out of JSOC for disobeying orders in Pakistan—and when he's offered a slot in Tungsten, an ultra-secret deep-cover organization, he jumps at the chance. Now his task is to infiltrate al Qaeda and prevent this deep-cover terror cell from making their plot a reality before it's too late. In Full Assault Mode, former Delta Force commander Dalton Fury takes readers inside the world of undercover special operations—where every wrong step costs lives, and one minute might just be one minute too late . . .
