Navy SEAL sniper Gil Shannon comes face-to-face with his most dangerous adversary yet in the breathtakingly cinematic new Sniper Elite military thriller from the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller American Sniper—the critically acclaimed memoir of Chris Kyle that inspired the Academy Award-winning film.
Hot on the trail of a high-profile target, Navy SEAL sniper Gil Shannon turns from hunter to hunted when he finds himself in the crosshairs of Chechen terrorist “The Wolf.” Stranded in Paris, Shannon must team up with an unlikely ally—a deadly Russian special operative—to help even the odds. When they discover that “The Wolf” is just one of many sinister players in a global terrorist plot bent on thrusting the US economy into total chaos and upending the stability of the Western world, Shannon and his team race to track down the terrorists before they can execute their horrific plan. In a white-knuckle adventure across Europe and the Caucasus, Shannon goes head-to-head with legions of enemy fighters, but his ultimate showdown is against the one sniper who may be his equal shot. Who will survive?

“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.”
