I received a galley of this novel for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence and Mature Language. This Thriller novel is set mostly in North Korea, with Chief Warrant Officer Thomas Crocker, a serving US Navy SEAL, as the main character.
The US Secret Service discovers an effort to pass millions in counterfeit US currently. Crocker is inadvertently involved, then soon after he and his team is tasked with destroying the source of the counterfeit bills.
Crocker’s team of SEALs sneak into North Korea to penetrate the secret facility where the money is being printed. They are also there to destroy efforts thought to be conducted there to enhance the North Korean nuclear missile program. They are asked to look for an American rocket scientist that is thought to be held hostage there as well.
Crocker and his team are faced with the entirety of the North Korean military seeking them. They must survive by stealth and find a way home once their mission is completed. They endure one hardship after another as they struggle to find their way home.
I enjoyed the 6 hours I spent reading this 304 page novel. I like these Special Ops kind of Thrillers and read the prior book in this series. While the plot was not innovative, it was interesting. I think that Crocker is an interesting character. I give this novel a 4 out of 5.
