Target America (Sniper Elite, #2)When Chechen terrorists manage to smuggle a Cold War era Russian nuke across the Mexican-American border, the President is forced to reactivate the only unit capable of stopping them: Navy SEAL sniper Gil Shannon and his brash team of SEALs and Delta Force fighters. First introduced in Sniper Elite: One Way Trip, hailed by Publishers Weekly as a “meaty thriller” with “snappy dialogue and well-timed humor,” Shannon and his team were run out of the military after defying direct orders and instead choosing to save the life of one of their own.

In Target America, Gil and his team, many of whom had gone rogue, are reunited as an off-the-books Special Ops unit that must race against the clock to save the country from nuclear destruction.

This book picks up from the last book with some or the same people, only now some of the men are not part of the military now for their part in the unauthorized rescue of a female pilot. They are now part of a black ops team. This story keeps you going as a reader with non-stop action and debate between military people and politicians. You get the feeling like this part is real anyway with the arguing and one person having to step up to make a decision. Action takes you from the black ops people to the terrorists, and to some of the former military personal that got kicked out and are now coming up with unique ways to stay busy and make money at the same time. This is a very well written book that flows real well and for me was a fast read because of the story line. Parts of the story actual seem like they could happen. I also liked how they gave credit to two former Seals who were killed in Benghazi, Libya, on September 12, 2012. Tyrone Snowden Woods and Glenn Anthony Doherty, who like the characters in the book did not have to go there but did anyway against overwhelming numbers to save Americans. This story feels like all service men active and not active. One of their characters said our family has been fighting since Guadalcanal, and you get that feeling from this book and this story. I really enjoyed the story. I got this book from net galley.
