Overview

They are the Outcasts. Because people don’t want to know what they do.

Alex Brandenburg: SEAL Chief Petty Officer and Outcasts Team Leader. Disobeyed direct orders by refusing to let a deadly terrorist live to kill another day. Francisco “Pancho” Rodriguez and John Landry: SEAL Petty Officers First Class. Took the pursuit of justice into their own hands with explosive results. Catherine “Cat” Fares. Navy Petty Officer. Holds an unbeatable record for pissing off the top brass with her strongly stated opinions on the combat readiness of women.

The team’s mission: Take out the seven terror merchants vying to take Bin Laden’s place. The team’s status: Expendable.

When America’s controversial Phoenix Program was buried during the Vietnam War, a new program rose from its ashes. A top-secret Special Operations unit, with a core mission to combat terror wherever they find it, Bitter Ash grew ever more necessary in a new world of Islamic fanaticism. Now, Bitter Ash is forming a special team, a SEAL Team Six with a difference. It is Tier One, on par with SEAL Team Six and Delta, but it will report directly to Bitter Ash, and its fight will take place under the cover of dark.

With Bin Laden dead, the petty leaders within al Qaeda struggle to assume his role at the top. The president of the United States doesn’t want any of them left to dominate . . . and that means he has only one choice. But doing what’s needed without political repercussions will take a small team flying under the radar. A team capable of finessing the U.N.’s distinctions on national sovereignty and acts of war. A team like the Outcasts.

With no official support from their government and no one to rely on but themselves, the Outcasts must track down each target. Hot on the tail of the third, Brandenburg and the team start to realize that they are closing in on a larger plot, one that puts the security of the United States in dangerous jeopardy. The terrorists are threatening American territory once again, and the Outcasts will have to do what SEALs do best. Whatever it takes to keep their country safe.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Though Wasdin and Templin worked together on the former's recent memoir, SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper, Wasdin's background doesn't translate into an exciting read in this contemporary thriller centered around a rogue group of American operatives. A sniper team stationed on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border is assigned to take out one of the Taliban's leading bomb makers. But when Abu al-Zubaydi, the terrorist, crosses into Pakistan, team leader and Chief Petty Officer Alexander Brandenburg defies orders to abstain from firing, and takes the killshot. Upon his return to headquarters, Brandenburg is booted off the team for disobeying, but lands on his feet as a member of a new SEAL team that is "smaller, quieter, and tasked with targeted solutions to…thorny problems." His new comrades include an attractive woman (of course) who poses as his wife on an assignment, but the evil plan they're assigned to foil lacks imagination. Fans of military thrillers should stick with Tom Clancy. (May)
From the Publisher
"A fiercely intense novel written from the ultimate insider’s perspective – an elite sniper from the famed SEAL TEAM Six."

--Chris Evans, author of the Iron Elves series

Kirkus Reviews
Capitalizing on the success of the memoir Wasdin wrote with Stephen Templin, Seal Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy Seal Sniper (2011), the pair returns with a cartoonish novel. Alexander "Alex" Brandenburg, John Landry, Catherine "Cat" Fares and Francisco "Pancho" Rodriguez are screw-ups. But screw-up is just another word for nothing left to lose. A supersecret program recruits this motley multiethnic crew to kill a group of terrorists engaged in a protracted battle to lead al Qaeda. The plot, a vehicle with one gear and no steering wheel, takes them back and forth from their base in Dam Neck, Va., to Jakarta, Zermatt, Beirut, Karachi, Islamabad, Paris and New York. Alex is team leader, and we glimpse his past, learn why he entered the service, hear his struggles and deepest thoughts: "When he was on land, he wanted to be at sea, and when he was at sea, he wanted to be on land. They were both his home, yet there were times when neither felt like his home." While the comic book artist exaggerates anatomy, here the weapons and hardware are described in fetishistic detail--you might take them for product placements. The Outcasts visit elegant strip clubs and stay in the finest hotels, making love when not making war. And though they are meant to appear sympathetic, they return, as if for relaxation, to the blood Jacuzzi. The Outcasts, masters of covert operations--they are alone and allegedly disposable--engage in multiple firefights in major cities, killing dozens. In one instance, if you bother to count, you will find that two SUVs disgorge, like clown cars in a circus, at least 21 terrorists. If you enjoy multiplayer shooting games and know or want to learn more about weapons systems, this book is for you.

    A great idea

    This is a well written book even for those who have never read a seal book. I think that it is a must read for those who like action packed books.
    Wasdin's other book a non-fiction book about seal team 6 is also a good book.

    Exciting read

    A good, if quick, summer read. I hope that this team writes more stories about the Outcasts. A little predictable, but an exciting book.

    Highly recommended!

    Check this out! This is a wonderfully entertaining read backed by superb knowledge of Seals. Never a dull moment. I'm a fan of Brad Taylor, Vince Flynn, and Brad Thor and I find this author's presentation of Seal Team 6 very real. My husband is retired military and I guess I'm still addicted to the life and stories. Anxious for the next installment.

    Do not recommend

    The story line was not well developed and did not keep my attention.
    There were times when I thought that the authors just tried to make the storyline fit.

    The bottom-line is that I did not enjoy the book, nor will I read anything else by these authors.
