Overview

Michael Valentine, veteran and former member of an elite private military company, has been recruited by the government to conduct a secret counter-terror operation in the Persian Gulf nation of Zubara. The unit is called Dead Six. Their mission is to take the fight to the enemy and not get caught.

Lorenzo, assassin and thief extraordinaire, is being blackmailed by the world's most vicious crime lord. His team has to infiltrate the Zubaran terrorist network and pull off an impossible heist or his family will die. When Dead Six compromises his objective, Lorenzo has a new job: Find and kill Valentine.

As allegiances are betrayed and the nation descends into a bloody civil war, Lorenzo and Valentine must face off. Two men. Two missions. Only one will win.

    Afraid of collaborations? Don't!

    Collaborating authors usually means a famous writer is tired of writing so he hires somebody to take dictation and gives him permission to add his stuff. At the end we get some sort of crappy literary meatloaf that leaves us with a bad taste in our mouths. The latest books from Tom Clancy and W.E.B. Griffin come to mind regarding these literary meat loafs.

    Few collaborations pull it off and before reading Dead Six, I was reading American Gunfight by Stephen Hunter and John Bainbridge which is a great book on a great theme written by outstanding authors. Even though I am a total fan of Larry's works, I feared that after American Gunfight, Dead Six was going to be a bit of a disappointment style-wise. Thank God I was wrong.

    Whereas you cannot tell who is writing what at any page in American Gunfighter indicating a creative fusion/meld between Hunter and Bainbridge, you do notice different styles of writing in Dead Six, but you cannot find specific transition points that make you go "Aha!" anywhere. Both Larry and Mike blend their narratives so well you find yourself saying "Hey, wait a sec, when did we change?" Eventually you are just happy to embrace it and enjoy it because it keeps the narrative fresh through the book.

    There is plenty of gunplay in the book and a big conspiracy afoot but there are no fantastic monsters, just your average Human type monster that can be nastier than a Master Vampire forced to do a Jenny Craig diet. Lots of moves and counter moves but not enough to make you dizzy and lose track of the story. Two more Dead Six books are in the pipeline and I am ready for them.
