"Dead Shot" is Dead On for Action

In the sequel to "Kill Zone", "Dead shot", a sniper named Kyle Swanson, with the aid of the special-ops unit Task Force Trident try to save the world from a new WMD. Swanson is "dead" by all accounts and records, and now serves the military as a secret weapon that cannot be touched by the law. Juba, a British trained sniper who secretly serves under al Qaeda, is now trying to get the WMD into use. After Juba tests the weapon at a British royal wedding, it becomes Swanson's top priority to neutralize Juba and the WMD. All of which leads up to a climactic ending which leaves the reader without many loose ends that need to be answered. This novel is a good read for a rainy day and provides the reader with hours of enjoyment. The reader should be warned though, that this book does contain a lot of violence which may make it less appealing to some. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as it immerses the reader into the mindset of a sniper. The only real negative comment about this book was that some of the parts of the plot were unbelievable. Not having read "Kill Zone", a lot of information was lost about the history of some of the characters, so I recommend that anyone interested should read "Kill Zone" first. I give this book a 4.5/5 as it was a great read that consistently held my interest, but did become a little hard to believe in parts.

This book is trash.

Unrealistic plot, lots of sub-plots and explanations that don't fit with the original plot. As a former military member I was disappointed. There are way to many non-fiction sniper books out there to spend your time reading this fictitious garbage. Save your money. Look...
