First Strike by R.J. Patterson

Another riveting thriller from award-winning and bestselling author R.J. Patterson in a new series about a black ops assassin wreaking havoc on terrorists everywhere.

With ruthless terrorist cells multiplying by the day, the head of the snake must be cut off--and Brady Hawk swings a sharp ax.

Realizing the ineffectiveness of America's own counter terrorism unit, Texas senator J.D. Blunt proposes a black ops program that's so off the books that only a handful of people know about it. Given the reins and funding to construct his own organization, Blunt creates Firestorm and recruits one of the most effective operatives the American government has ever known: Brady Hawk.

Working with D.C.-based handler Alex Duncan, Hawk learns the location of the chief bomb maker for the terrorist group Al Hasib and enters into a race against the clock to eliminate him as well as the man behind the cell before they destroy a key U.S. target.

But that's not all Hawk learns. As the son of the world's most renowned weapons manufacturer, Hawk must also come to terms that maybe his father isn't who he thinks he is--and neither is Blunt.

This pulse-pounding thriller will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very last shot is fired.

First book in the series, Brady Hawk is a black op agent working for Senator Blunt. His base handler is Alex Duncan, an ex-CIA agent, very talented and beautiful. Brady has to kill a very dangerous terrorist in Afganistan. A very well written story, keep you reading and wanting to learn more about theirs characters and their whereabouts. Looking forward to go on with the serie.

Brady Hawk is a new hero that has the advantage of being more realistic than many depicted black operators. He works as a deep cover assassin to surgically remove terrorists without the publicity and collateral damage associated with drone strikes. The story was very effective in dealing with personal interactions, both foreign and domestic. The major players were most intriguing, including Brady's sponsor who is depicted as a powerful politician with limited morals. This story was imaginative, but certainly came across as realistic. The writing style communicates the environment and suspense without interfering with the action. I have encountered a glut of black ops novels, and this is definitely one of the best. It is a quick and easy read full of realistic action and suspense.
