In Dalton Fury's “Tier One Wild” (St. Martin's Press, $25.99), Maj. Kolt “Racer” Raynor, a member of 1st Special Force Operational Detachment-Delta, or “The Unit,” is on probation after his rash judgment on a previous mission. He and his team get a new assignment, dropping on a hijacked American 767 in New Delhi.
They're hoping to land and join the others in storming the plane. Unfortunately, the plane begins to roll as they're descending, and their next move is a one-of-a-kind maneuver. This is just the opener.
The next assignment is in Libya, trying to save a United Nations employee who discovers a large number of the newest shoulder-fire missiles have disappeared. David Wade Doyle, an American trained as a jihadist and on the U.S. most wanted list, has purchased the missiles.
Doyle is in Yemen, training English-speaking terrorists on how to use the missiles. Their plan is to smuggle the weapons into America and start shooting down commercial airliners. Doyle has a more sinister plan for his missile.
It's action from start to finish with real insight into Delta from someone who's been there.
