Overview

From the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestselling American Sniper, this “inspired by true events” thriller follows one of America’s most lethal snipers as he leads the rescue of a downed female Special Ops pilot.

The President of the United States can’t decide how to respond to a classified video showing the Taliban’s brutal treatment of their captive—a female helicopter pilot of the Army’s elite Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Afraid that a botched rescue will further destabilize foreign policy and end his presidency, the Commander-in-Chief falters. But when the Special Ops community learns that one of their own is being tortured and will almost certainly be killed, no executive order will stop them from attempting a rescue mission.

In direct defiance of the President’s orders, Navy SEAL sniper Gil Shannon launches an audacious mission with the support of elite soldiers and an enigmatic government figure, to infiltrate the tribal faction holding the captured pilot. A pulse-pounding battle ensues, pitching the entire force of the Taliban against the fearless and heroic American sniper. Packed with blistering action and real-life combat scenes, Sniper Elite: One Way Trip will pin you to the edge of your seat until the very last sentence.

When a female helicopter pilot is captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan, veteran Navy SEAL Gil Shannon is sent to rescue her. McEwen (coauthor, American Sniper) creates physical, emotional, and bureaucratic obstacles for his hero to overcome, while providing unobtrusive background to make this endless conflict fathomable. Although this thriller is drenched in macho posturing, the female characters are vivid and the Afghan loyalists sympathetic. Brian Hutchinson handles the numerous characters with great skill, giving one a voice similar to that of Sam Shepard to emphasize his rugged manliness. VERDICT Recommended for those interested in contemporary war fiction as well as those wishing to understand Afghanistan better.—Michael Adams, CUNY Graduate Ctr. Lib., New York
