With Field of Valor Matthew Betley has somehow figured out how to fit an IMAX 3D Hollywood Summer Blockbuster onto the pages of a novel (which is probably why his books have been optioned by Thunder Road Films!). Right off the bat I’ll let it be known that I think this will go down as one of 2018s best thrillers. This is a novel of pure adrenaline and thrills that delivers something on every page. Its the ideal summer read which makes its release right before ...more
Ohio author Matthew Betley grew up in Cincinnati, attended St. Xavier High School and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he earned a B.A. in psychology and minors in political science and sociology. He also spent the first semester of senior year investigating felony murder cases as an intern investigator in Washington, D.C., for the Public Defender's Office. After graduation, ...more
“ Field of Valor”, the third in a series of special-ops thrillers featuring former Marine. Logan West, by Matthew Bentley will please every fan of the genre. The novel begins with an all-out action scene and continues at that heightened pace for the next five hundred pages. I think that there is a shootout virtually every thirty pages, ...more
I'm not sure why Betley needed to tell the reader that the tires of the pickup gripped the surface, because, hey, Betley, that's what tires do. Let us know when they don't, otherwise leave us alone.
Some of the writing was okay, but when Betley gets to action scenes, he goes so far over the t ...more

The Organization has global connections and funding that rivals most ‘First” World nations. While its main goal had been to do good, the group has now splint ...more
Lord have mercy, but Mr. Bentley has outdone himself again. The intensity and forward movement of his plot has again kept me totally committed to finishing this book before undertaking what I needed to do in life at bay until I finished the last page. But as before, he didn't really FINISH the story. He seems to have just finished this episode. I sincerely hope that he's well on his way toward finishing the next episode.
A tick less than the previous 2 excellent books in the series, this one suffers from too much spoken exposition and some hackneyed dialogue. A rush that ultimately powers over those speed bumps.
Another excellent book by Matthew Betley. Non stop action from beginning to end. The formation of Aires and the members of the team, make this series extremely exciting. I can’t wait until the next book comes out.
