The New York Times bestselling author of Outlaw Platoon makes his fiction debut with this electrifying military thriller-a gripping tale of action, suspense, and international intrigue that introduces a compelling new hero, Eric Steele. Eric Steele is the best of the best-an Alpha-an elite clandestine operative assigned to a US intelligence unit known simply as the "Program." A superbly trained Special Forces soldier who served several tours fighting radical Islamic militants in Afghanistan, Steele now operates under the radar, using a deadly combination of espionage and brute strength to root out his enemies and neutralize them. But when a man from Steele’s past attacks a military convoy and steals a nuclear weapon, Steele and his superiors at the White House are blindsided. Moving from Washington, DC, to the Middle East, Europe, and Africa, Steele must use his considerable skills to hunt this rogue agent, a former brother-in-arms who might have been a friend, and find the WMD before it can reach the United States-and the world is forever changed. Reviews "Parnell brings his combat experience as a U.S. Army infantry officer in Afghanistan to his impressive first novel and series launch (after memoir Outlaw Platoon). Special Forces operative Eric Steele, who’s as tough as his name, serves in a secret unit known as the Program that answers only to the president of the United States. Steele has succeeded in saving America on a number of occasions, but now he’s facing a deadly adversary: Nathaniel West, his one-time mentor who has now gone rogue and stolen a suitcase nuke to exact revenge on the United States. The cast includes a traitor in the highest levels of the American government, a president dying of cancer, and a beautiful CIA agent, Meg Harden, to supply the sex and romance that Steele needs in his rare down time. The authenticity and intensity of the battles scenes more than compensate for the familiar plot and sometimes jingoistic prose. Thriller fans will be eager to see more of Steele."
