Kill Zone: A Sniper Novel
An American general is captured in the Middle East by terrorists who threaten to behead him within days. One strange fact: moments before he is rendered unconscious during the attack, the general notices that his captors speak American English. What's going on?
Gunnery Sgt. Kyle Swanson, a top Marine sniper, is vacationing on a yacht in the Mediterranean when he receives orders to mount a top secret mission to rescue the general. But as the Marines prepare to land in the Syrian desert, they fall victim to a terrible accident. Swanson, the only survivor, then discovers they were also flying into an ambush. How did the enemy have details of a mission known only to a few top American government officials?
Swanson takes off across the desert alone to find the captured general and realizes he is fighting a particularly ruthless and dangerous enemy: American mercenaries working for a very-high-level group of U.S. officials with ties to the White House itself, part of a clandestine conspiracy whose hidden goal is nothing less than total control of the American military. Their sworn enemy is the captured general whose fate now rests in Swanson's hands.
Filled with the kind of action that author Jack Coughlin lived during his career as a Marine sniper, Kill Zone marks the debut of an extraordinary new series.

I grabbed Kill Zone as an impulse book at the library. For not having any expectations, this book did a wonderful job of keeping me reading till the end. A well written military action novel, Kill ... Read full review
The action sections and parts of the book with Kyle Swanson were very good and I enjoyed them. However, the rest of the story was all over the place.
The author likes to jump around in the storyline. Just as I got comfortable with what was going with someone in the story, he would jump to another person. It doesn't make for a comfortable read and can make it hard to remember was is going on if you put the book down for a while.
I will read the other books in the series because I like the subject matter. Hopefully the next book isn't as jumpy.
