"No Man's Land" was a fast-paced and exciting military suspense novel. The world-building was excellent, and the details of the setting, various cultures, and actions (sailing, military, etc.) were realistic and brought the world alive in my imagination. I felt like the narrator was a real person telling me about events that had really happened. The characters were realistic and interesting. I wanted to know what happened next and had a hard time putting the book down.

It was clear from the chara

A fairly well written thriller with not quite enough action that has a plot with an odd twist/ending.

Tanner is a Delta vet who is hired by the US government to find the little grandson of an emir whose son and family were killed by terrorists and who is being held hostage somewhere in north Africa. He's given virtually unlimited resources to do this. One of the things that was strange for me right off the bat was that the location of the terrorist army was easily pinpointed and known by all invo

Wow, what an amazing book ...
I grew up reading and loving the adventure like thrillers of the seventies and early eighties. Alistair MacLean, Robert Ludlum, Desmond Bagley or Clive Cussler, you name them I've read them. Now I'm realy surprised and pleased to find an active(living) author that can write in this classic style.
I admit the plot is simple a former soldier is hired to retrieve the kidnapped grandson of an Emir. He hires a few old buddys and they start their own small war to get the jo

Shelves: fiction
Action packed with fiction that is based on the real life experiences and expertise of former Delta operator Eric L.Haney. Right up there with blockbusters like Clancy and Daniel Silva, but much more reality-based in both military action and character description. The story is concise and to-the-point, making for a fast and very enjoyable read. In fact it seamlessly merge into a second book with the same lead character, Kennesaw Tanner, a kind of warrior-philosopher with a positive attitude ...more

Written by ex Delta Force operator Eric L. Haney about a character with a similar background, the book's action is made engaging by its realism. Pragmatic in tone, the book emphasizes the preparation and cooperation required of commando operations.Most impressive to me are the author's appreciation of cultures (both foreign and his own) and the humanity it conveys.

Well written, but not one of my favorites. Hopefully the next installment for Kenesaw will be a bit more entertaining. The book has a few high points, but is very predictable. Give the new author a shot, with the hopes that the next book in the series is a bit better..

Very good! I learned some things, had a hard time putting it down. First of the "Tanner" novels. Anxious for more!

From the same author as "Inside Delta Force". Pretty good book, it was very mission based and not a whole lot of side stories which I actually enjoyed. I will read the next book in the series.
