Spain is on the brink of economic collapse, and European banks demand that any bailout be linked to harsh domestic changes. An alliance of Islamic bankers counters with a rescue package containing no conditions at all. The underlying goal: to break the unity of Europe and put Madrid on the path back to Islamic rule.
When the United States stridently opposes that deal, terrorists storm the American consulate in Barcelona and slaughter an entire six-man US Marine security guard. Washington decides the time has come to change the rules of counterterrorism response, and instead of going after the individual hired gunmen, it unleashes black operations team Task Force Trident to take down the high-ranking financiers known as the Group of Six who were really responsible for the slaughter. Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson, one of the world's best snipers, and his beautiful sidekick, Beth Ledford, go on the attack, and bodies fall from Mallorca to Madrid. Meanwhile, Algerian mastermind Yanis Rebiane puts pressure on Spain to decide before the Group of Six cracks, while his killing-machine son, Djahid, roams the United States, murdering anyone his father deems a threat to the radical Islamic takeover scheme. Once Swanson's name is unearthed from secret files, Kyle and Djahid become hunter and prey. In On Scope by Jack Coughlin and Donald A. Davis, one shot will decide the future of Spain, NATO, and the European Union.

"Another girl gets away"
Swanson continues the adventure and the bodies continue to stack up. Double returns to this book with a large part to play.
I am starting to hope for,something with a little more,depth. I really like the Swanson books but give him a little more complexity.
"Great Series, Good Novel"
I love this series but finally realized there is a consistent flaw in the female characters. Yes they are competent, brave and talented but when it comes to personal relationships or personal attributes they are clichés. I can’t think of any American women who would just ‘want to make her man happy’ for the rest of her life. Almost any female who has had a career will want more out of life than to be just Mrs. … And the stereo type of women as shoppers, shoe hogs and likening heels .. ya there are women who do but there are as many or more who don’t. It is ok to occasionally stereo type or use clichés but ALL of the women professionals in this series succumb to the personal life stereo typing. With that said however, the handling of female professional situations is great. Back to this book: this is another great installment in the Gunnery Kyle Swanson saga. It is well done, plenty of action and personal development. Down side, some threads seem left incomplete. Not sure if it was cut by the editor or what. This is good, not the best in the series but even then it is still above most and a solid 4 stars.
"great except for the narrator"
the narrator tried to inflict too much individualism for each character. sometimes less is more
"It's ok "
I've read several of coughlin s books this was my least favorite. Not alot depth to the story.
