Nothing stops former Navy SEAL and Tier One operator John Dempsey from answering the call of duty—including a mission with the highest stakes he’s ever faced. When one of the most brazen and lethal acts of terrorism rocks American and Israeli intelligence forces at the highest levels, Dempsey’s ultracovert antiterror unit, Ember, mobilizes.
But this operation isn’t just a r...more

Farvad survived. Did you like his character?
Assuming you've read the first two books in the series, you'll see that Dempsey builds relationships with assets in different specialities in different organizations and these supporting characters make appearances in later books. (e.g., Chunk with the SEALs, Hanson with FBI HRT, Levi Harel, etc.). This happens in real life, agents need to build a network of allies they can count on all around the world...
It is certainly possible we will see Farvad again :-)
More lists with this book...
A fairly typical cyber thriller, with the usual team going up against terrorists who blew up the heads of US and Israeli intelligence.
Not bad, although it occasionally seems like the author was hitting his checklist instead of letting things flow organically.
One more word: romance.
This third book in the Tier One series is extremely satisfying; the whole Iranian problem gets wrapped up and takes some surprising turns. The best part for me is watching John Dempsey's character grow yet again as new circumstances shape his self-image and identity in general. As always, the side characters are fantastic and the action is intense. I never imagined that I, a romance/chick-lit lover, would enjoy hearing the politics of America and Iran ...more
Crusader One continues the narrative of Team Ember and John Dempsey, hot on the trail of the VEVAK operative who orchestrated the deaths of his Dempsey's previous team of soldiers. With nuclear tensions rising between Israel and Iran due to a devastating attack on the US and Israeli ...more
Brian Andrews and Jeffery Wilson have become my favorite authors and this last book in the Tier One trilogy truly solidifies this. Holy cow, what a ride!
Because this is the third book in the series, I felt I knew the characters and their subtleties. However, Andrews and Wilson had some surprises up their collective sleeves that I didn't see coming. That is the mark of truly great writers- the fact that after two books, the third book still had new depths.
The st ...more
Loved this Series! The books are written so that you feel like you are part of the book! I felt like I was a part of the team! I read it in my Kindle so Silly me didn't find the important military "slang" until the end of first book! I recommend this series to anyone that always wanted to live as a Warrior! ...more
One of the best in the series to date! John Dempsey is the best character and Wilson and Andrews bring out the inner workings of his mind. Additionally, I would follow Kelso Jarvis into battle any day! It amazes me how attached I have become to all of the characters in this series. It is so entertaining to watch their growth as operators and the internal struggles they must battle during their quest to complete the mission. American Operator is perhaps the best book of the series and one ...more
Crusader One was one heck of a ride! I have come to expect heart pounding action sequences with our JD, and this does NOT disappoint! We see JD battle some vicious demons in this installment, and how does he come out on the other side? Read Crusader One and find out!
I’ve read the previous two books and enjoyed them so much I wanted to read this third. Like the first two, it is action packed and a definite pager turner. You could read this as a one off, but I would strongly recommend you read the other two first, as you have far more of the back story. As I have mentioned in my reviews of book 1 and 2, these are equal to Lee Child’s Reacher books. My suggestion is buy all three and have a good read over Christmas.
It’s awesome when authors lead you in one direction that’s exciting and interesting only to suddenly grip you with a diversion, heightening your anticipation of a new twist and protagonist challenge. Tier One continues to entertain.
The writing is so well done and the characters so well laid out that you go through all the emotions they do. The authors do such an amazing job with action sequences that your brain pulls in your other senses and you end up out of breath.
I received an ARC of this novel through https://www.netgalley.com in return for a fair and honest review. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence and Mature Language. The story is set mostly in the middle east. The primary character is former US Navy SEAL and Tie ...more
