Publisher's Summary

An electrifying new thriller series for listeners who love Vince Flynn and Brad Thor! Former marine officer Matthew Betley introduces fearless soldier Logan West in this action-packed, globe-trotting, edge-of-your-seat debut.

Former Marine Force Reconnaissance officer Logan West emerges from a blackout after drinking away the worries of his ruined marriage and PTSD, an all too familiar scene for the recovering alcoholic. But he wakes to more than a killer hangover: A professional mercenary has been sent to capture him. After an embattled showdown, Logan impulsively answers the dead man's ringing phone, triggering a hasty rescue of Logan's estranged wife and a global race against the clock to track down an unknown organization searching for an Iraqi flag central to a planned attack in the Middle East - one that will draw the US into a major conflict with Iran.

Logan and John Quick, Logan's former platoon sergeant who has also been targeted by these shadowy mercenaries, are contracted as "consultants" to assist the FBI as part of a special task force led by Logan's close friend. From the plains of the Midwest to the Alamo and mansions in Northern Mexico to the war-torn Al Anbar province, the battles build in scale and scope and pit an international team against mercenaries and former Special Forces operators employed by the world's largest private security contractor, whose owner has a shadowy personal vendetta of his own.

Meanwhile Logan is battling his own demons, unable to shake the trauma of the ambush that his Force Recon unit suffered at an insurgent torture compound in Fallujah in 2004. Mixing thrilling, you-are-there fight scenes with high-stakes tactical maneuvers and complex, fully realized characters, Overwatch is up to the minute and impossible to pause.

    "Perfect"

    This book is as described those who are fans of vince flynn and brad thor will enjoy this. It was all action but with a good storey line behind it. I hope this turns into a long lasting series. The characters are very likeable and have you rooting for them at every turn. The narrator did a very good job and was very easy to listen to. So if you.would like a good action book then give this a try.

    Terrible in every way possible, please avoid. Story 1/10, Narration 2/10, over all a total waste of time!

    "repetitive"

    the story is creative and captivating, but the action sequences get very repetitive. Betley does a good job with details of settings, but has a hard time describing the mindset of someone with PTSD.

    "Was ok"

    Normally I appreciate a good thriller, but this one was just ok. The story concept was a decent one, but I found the writing to be a bit cliche and trite. Our hero never suffers any major set backs, only minor inconveniences. I really had to suspend reality while listening. Seeing as how this is the first book in the series, I'll likely try another one and see if things get better as the author gets more comfortable.

    "A great start"

    A new author who will grow "Logan" into a character to follow. Worth the read.

    "What a difference a few new twist make!"

    First off there will be another book, friends, earned trust, being like minded, relationship problems, and guest ions of honor, if any of these subjects interest you. You'll find it all in this book.
    Is the best book I have listened to....No, but it was an enjoyable listen. It certainly beats a lot of the %#^* that is currently being passed a a literary best seller.
    If you are having trouble finding average+ book here is one to consider

    "Garbage in the genre"

    No good. Narrative is super derivative. Performance off by a mile. Wrong on so many levels. Skip it.

    "A fun plot to follow"

    Betley created a good plot and filled it with interesting characters. I really like Lee Childs and Vince Flynn and I am always looking for another author who can write on par with them. Yes, that is a personal opinion and others may not be fans of Childs and Flynn, but that is my bias. That being said, the plot was ok. Simple yet intersting, so I'm not ready to hold Betley up with the others just yet. But I did find the chracters to be engaging and they have a measure of depth to them. Overall, it is a fast paced story which held my attention. There are a few holes which I thought could have been handled better, but they are minor, in my opinion, and they don't sink the overall production. I look forward to others in the series.

    "Just not good."

    Im not sure if it was the writing or the narrator but this book was awful. Struggled to the finish line. Im thinking that its the narrator who is horribler.

    "Super repetitive."

    Chase, beat up, get hurt, miraculously survive. Rinse, repeat 100 times.

    I love this genre, but I almost turned it off with 1.5 hours remaining. I'll never get those 1.5 hours back...

    "Great story from the first 5 minutes"

    Engrosssed in the book from the first 5 minutes. Great action and adventure. Love the Logan West and John Quick characters. They were so life like. The sarcasm added just the right amount of humor to the story. One of the best I've listened to in the last year.
