Summary

A breakneck, edge-of-your-seat thriller that moves from a resurgent Russian threat in the Aleutian Islands to North Korean spy ships to secret Sudanese prisons as former marines Logan West and John Quick, now members of an FBI special task force, uncover a global conspiracy that threatens America's position in the current international balance of power.

Logan West and John Quick are sent to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, to investigate the possible presence of a Russian black ops team on a mission to steal United States next-generation technology. The resulting violent confrontation triggers a global search for the stolen technology and threatens to pit the US against China in a looming shadow war and technology race. As Logan and John - joined by the chief of the CIA's Special Operations Group, Cole Matthews - battle their way through Spain and the Mediterranean and ultimately across Sudan, an imminent threat arises at home that FBI deputy director Mike Benson must face and determine if it is part of the deadly global conspiracy.

Oath of Honor is an intense and gripping follow-up to former marine Matthew Betley's "brilliantly conceived" (Clive Cussler) Overwatch and solidifies his place among the greatest contemporary thriller writers.

Fantastic listen.

This was a great follow up to the first book in the series. I enjoyed every minute of it, there was action from the start and right up until the end. I hope this is the start of a very long series. The stile reminds me of vince flynn or brad thor and stephen leather. If you like any of these then give this series a try you wont be disappointed.

A light read with good action.

Overall this book is not too bad. There's lots of action and this would be a good beach read/listen. Having said that the book is overly cliche ridden. The main characters are, of course, great at everything and move through the story giving one wise crack after another. In the end, while a thriller, it leaves one happy that, not only has good triumphed over evil, but the book has ended.

Good story but with ill-timed military banter.

A good action spy thriller with a suspenseful plot that is unfortunately interrupted by ill-timed military banter that that would be more appropriate before or after the critical dramatic moments the humor all too often shows up at.

Save your Time & Money

I normally like this series from this author. IF all authors are bound to write at least ONE Dud in their lives/careers. This was certainly a Dud for Bentley.

Excellent!

What did you love best about Oath of Honor?

The action was timely, and worth while.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Logan. His skills, and faults seem genuine.

Which character – as performed by George Newbern – was your favorite?

Tie between Logan, and Amir.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Action, justice, and what our operatives are capable of.

Any additional comments?

If you like Brad Thor, et al, you must get this.

I love this Narrator!

What made the experience of listening to Oath of Honor the most enjoyable?

A good/ not good Narrator can make or break a book. I love this narrator and could listen to him all day. Suspenseful story helps.

Plenary of action

The story introduces a new international threat to US security and world order. The heroes are small a group of former Seals and Delta operators that are the best and most lethal operators in the world. Action takes place in Alaska, Nevada, and Sudan with a group of Chinese operators. The author spends too much time describing how good the hero’s are, and justifying their use of torture. Despite these flaws, I enjoyed the book and look forward to the next one.

Even better than Overwatch.

I grow more fond of Logan and John, now joined by Cole and Magin, new and deadly partners I look forward to meeting again in the next installment from Mr Betley.

Enjoyable with lots of moving parts

The story line was interesting and kept my attention. I was disappointed that Logan West had so much help and wasn't the absolutely hero. But that said, the other characters that were introduced were enjoyable.
Looking forward to the next one

Foul language

I like action political thrillers, but not this one. If one doesn't care about foul language and non stop fighting action, then this is the book for you. Fighting went on, and on, and on, to the point where I could skip quite a distance, and they'd still be in the same battle. I'm returning this book... didn't finish and quit part way in because I couldn't take the foul language. Plenty of F bombs and taking God's name in vain. The plot was thin, and it appeared to me the author was just focused on making fighting scenes. Will not be buying from this author, again.
