Overview

By NY Times Bestselling Author and former Green Beret Bob Mayer

Over five million books sold. Translated into over a dozen languages.

Section 8: The men and women called upon by The Organization to do the impossible. They are the soldiers who have nothing to lose. They make up a top–secret unit tasked with what others call suicide missions.

The Organization pulled strings long before the founding of the United States. It dates back to the destruction of the Knights Templar and even further in history. As secrets from the Golden Lilly Operation and the infamous Unit 731 from World War II become exposed, you have to wonder who the real enemy is.

Captain Jim Vaughn is an officer in disgrace. Commanding a Special Forces mission to rescue hostages in the Philippines, Vaughn's team is destroyed, and when the smoke clears, he is the one made the scapegoat. Forced into the shadows by the scandal, Vaughn is offered a chance to redeem himself when he is approached by an enigmatic government agent working for The Organization looking for a few desperate men.

Vaughn is shocked to meet his new teammates, a group of men and women outside of the regular chain of command. These are soldiers who have used up all their second chances. These are men and women who have crossed the line one too many times. Drug users. Felons. The terminally ill. These are now the soldiers that Vaughn must trust with his life. Even with a traitor in their ranks. But is the traitor actually the patriot?

This group of misfits has been assembled for two reasons––they are skilled, and they are expendable. These are the kinds of men and women who are needed to attempt missions the government can't acknowledge, the country can't condone, and the team cannot fail. But the deeper Vaughn gets into the unique group, the more he realizes that The Organization may be concealing more than the rap sheets of its most unusual operators. A team of such unique properties is the perfect tool to use against America's enemies...and possibly America itself.

    Fast paced

    I enjoyed the concept of not knowing the idenity of who is pulling the strings. Lots of action and thought provoking. Good setup for series.

    Good Read

    Good Read if you like clandestine novels. With numerous things going on at once, the author has you feeling like your not missing a minute of the action. Somewhat predictable but the ending leaves you wanting more. I hope there is a second book to find out what happens next.

    I LOVED all the Area 51 books, but for some reason this book was really hard for me to get into. I thought it had a lot of technical military terms, and that made it hard for me to follow and really get a flow while reading. I couldn't even finish this book...

    Conspiracy theory at the highest levels ?

    An enjoyable read (as long as you don't get overly hooked on the conspiracy theory); good characters, and it would seem that the end leaves open the possibility of a sequel.
    Bob Mayer has again provided us with a good story.

    Good

    Extremely action packed from beginning to end. Double cross/triple cross. Who is really the good guys? Never really ever figure that one out clearly. Was an enjoyable read. Tired now. Got to find a book with a little less action for my next book.

    more from this reviewer

    Section 8

    It starts out slow I was unsure if I would like the book now I have a hard time putting it down. I read it at work so I can only read a few paragraphs at a time but I want to get back to it when I am working. I think it is well written I am not sure how much of the military jargon is real or made up but I don't care.

    Great Action

    Bob Mayer really knows about military ops. The book was nonstop reading. The reading was easy and really true to life ops. I enjoyed the book and identified with it as I am a 22 year Army vet.
