Drop Zone by Michael Salazar

In the pulse-pounding tradition of W.E.B. Griffin and Richard Marcinko, here is a pure adrenaline skydive into enemy territory — a top-notch military adventure written by an Air Force Combat Crewmember who knows firsthand what awaits in the Drop Zone.

Among the U.S. Special Forces’ most valued troops are the Air Force’s Pararescue Teams — “PJs” who drop out of C-130s or HH-60G Blackhawks into places no one else can reach, to retrieve the wounded, the dying ... and the secrets their government will kill to uncover.

Outfitted with the military’s most sophisticated equipment, Master Sergeant Jason Johnson is one of the nation’s best pararescue jumpers. Now he’s been teamed up with a hotshot Marine for his most perilous mission yet.

Johnson must drop behind enemy lines in war-torn Bosnia to find and retrieve evidence of a horrifying war crime: the ethnic cleansing of five thousand civilians through the use of a deadly nerve toxin. But from the moment they leap into the swirling Balkan darkness, Johnson and his partner enter a landscape of unspeakable destruction and despair — and a mission that goes wrong in every conceivable way.

On a race through enemy territory, Johnson is stripped of every means of survival — and only a miracle will bring him out alive....

First book I have read straight through since 'Jaws' came out. Masterful storytelling and explicit detail make this book too exciting to put down. No break in the action or suspense, with compelling characterizations and a convincing storyline. I had 13 years flying military aircraft described in the book, and even spent time in combat rescue and special ops. working with real PJ's -- Salazar hits the nail on the head in every respect. Crichton, Koonce and Clancy have a new peer among their ranks in Mr. Salazar. His extensive military background provides unparalleled realism for those of us who are 'in the know' about covert military operations. This book is a must read. It has 'blockbuster', 'sequel' and 'feature film' written all over it, but pandors nothing to achieve these results. Mr Salazar is certain to develop a cult following among military and history buffs. I look forward to his next thriller.

Initial military jousting between different branches settles down to a serious military mission over neartime current events. Somewhat bravado character behaviour is replaced with believable and spellbinding action that leaves the reader believing in the good guys and really disliking the bad guys. What more could you want?
