A Black Ops NovelBook - 2003
Black ops master storyteller John Weisman creates a scenario so real that if he weren't claiming to write fiction, SOAR would be classified top secret.
On the eve of a groundbreaking U.S.-China summit, a covert CIA operation to bug a secret nuclear test site in western China goes terribly wrong when the American black ops team is captured by a vicious fringe group of Islamic terrorists. With the clock ticking, the president scrambles Major Michael Ritzik, the young CO of Sword Squadron, a top secret element of the Army's elite Delta Force, to rescue the hostages without leaving any fingerprints.
Its mission: impossible -- exactly what Delta trains to do. But then things go from bad to worse. U.S. intelligence learns the terrorists have not only ambushed a Chinese army convoy, they have also hijacked a highly unstable nuclear weapon and armed it. Beijing dispatches its own special forces in hot pursuit. Now Ritzik must use speed, surprise, and violence of action to beat the Chinese to the target, grab the spooks, and disarm the nuke.Failure is not an option.
