Target America: A Sniper Elite Novel

Scott McEwen, with Thomas Koloniar. S&S/Touchstone, $19.99 (384p) ISBN 978-1-4767-4719-4
At the start of bestseller McEwen and Koloniar’s riveting sequel to 2013’s Sniper Elite: One-Way Trip, members of the Riyad us-Saliheyn Martyrs’ Brigade are smuggling a Russian RA-115 “suitcase” nuke through a tunnel underneath the border between Mexico and the U.S. The mission doesn’t go as planned, and the American government learns that another RA-115 is already somewhere within the country. The CIA turns for help to Navy SEAL Gil Shannon, recently pulled out of retirement by Bob Pope, the loose-cannon director of the CIA’s Special Activities Division, to track down two terrorists involved in the real-life attack on the American mission in Benghazi in 2012 that killed two SEALs. To locate the second nuke, Shannon puts together his old unit, SEAL Team Six Black, filled with the usual colorful characters. Meanwhile, various weenie government officials are quaking in their boots. A deadly terrorist attack on Gil’s wife and her mother on their ranch in Montana is as good as any fictional battle scene in recent memory. Readers will want to see a lot more of SEAL Team Black. Agent: Ian Kleinert, Objective Entertainment. (June)
