Brad Taylor recommends
Reaper: Ghost Target (2018)
(Sniper , book 1)
Nicholas Irving and A J Tata
"You couldn't ask for a better writing team?from the strategic to the tactical?the experiences of both authors bleed through on every page, the authenticity ripped straight from a battlefield after action report. Reaper: Ghost Target starts with a crack, and hits on all cylinders."
Down Range (2021)
(Garrett Kohl, book 1)
Taylor Moore
"Having lived it, Taylor Moore hits every bit of the cost of counterterrorism in Down Range, but this story is much more. It’s a riveting thriller with a family in crisis at the core. It's my kind of book."
