“Step aside, Jack Ryan--Kolt Raynor is the true hero of the new millennium. Written with an authentic voice, the debut novel by Dalton Fury, Black Site, left me breathless and awed by its battlefield-hardened reality. I kept having to remind myself this was fiction.” ―James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Devil Colony
“A thriller that crackles with gut-wrenching action and authenticity.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Black Site
“Fury is retired Delta Force, giving the action a rapid-fire, realistic air...Racer is locked and loaded for a series of adventures.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Black Site is an amazing thriller from a new allstar in the genre. Packed with speed, surprise, and overwhelming violence of action, this is one book you will not be able to put down! Want to know what Spec Ops really look like? Read Dalton Fury. Simply put--nobody does it better.” ―Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Full Black

The plot itself is also hard to believe. I understand the new deniable unit is deeply classified and all, but come on, they would have some backup and resources on a major threat like the one here.
The writing is oddly stilted at times, and is begging for a good copy editor's touch.
Overall, very disappointing. Let's hope the next book is back on track, or I will sadly not bother with this author anymore.

This secret new group he works for and their power, authority, and connections to the rest of the world are not explained well, and instead of feeling pleasantly mysterious, it simply produces frustration. His various transitions between government/extra-government/terrorist group/terrorist city/military custody/vigilante feel confusing and rushed, without Fury's typically-excellent contextualization and scene shifting. The extremely bizarre insertion of his "wife" into the storyline is certainly unexpected, but it never delivers on the subliminal promises it suggests, and after multiple chapters of that thread not really getting tied in, every mention of her ends up being disorienting. Motivations remain unclear throughout the book, even when it seems as though they were intended to be obvious.
I am glad I kept reading, for the last moments of the plot are nice, and finally start to make some sense of things, allowing me to avoid giving less than three stars; however, it is still too little too late. Because the previous books were SO good, I intend to purchase the next on faith that this was a fluke, but if the suffering I felt as a reader is repeated, I will have to put down these books for good. I have high hopes; I am confident that this is not Dalton Fury's best, and I am very much looking forward to better.
We all make allowances to enjoy fiction but to me the story line and characters can be inconsistent. Additionally There are some weapons and a basic medical error -it's a sucking chest wound not a sunken chest wound as mentioned 4 times.
Unfortunately the plot line is a good premise just poorly executed . I don't expect adventure books to be fine literature but I do expect the characters actions to be consistent and make sense . The book seems to skip ahead to finish or some chapters were removed. If you buy the book you'll like the first quarter of the book.
1. It seemed a little far fetched how the assumptions were made and how they seemed to always work out.
2. I did not like how a certain Admiral shows up again out of the blue. The character just stinks.
It's definitely a good read, and one I would recommend, but behind the first two of the series for sure.
