What started out as a good tale was ruined by the graphic sexual assault of a minor and offensive language. Although such behaviour happens, it can be alluded to and it is not necessary to have this portrayed in this detail. ( )

At first it was hard to get into this book. It felt a bit fractured to me. It was hard keeping track of names and characters. The book picked up its pace with the start of the rescue mission and held my attention to the end. Scary to think that something like this could potentially happen. Probably not far off the mark on a lesser level given the private armies formed due to the Iraq/Afghanistan wars. Not a bad read. ( )

I grabbed Kill Zone as an impulse book at the library. For not having any expectations, this book did a wonderful job of keeping me reading till the end. A well written military action novel, Kill Zone was everything I hoped it would be; nothing more, nothing less. I do not doubt that this author's previous book will find its way onto my list in the future. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312360185, Hardcover)

An American general is captured in the Middle East by terrorists who threaten to behead him within days. One strange fact: moments before he is rendered unconscious during the attack, the general notices that his captors speak American English. What’s going on?   
 
Gunnery Sgt. Kyle Swanson, a top Marine sniper, is vacationing on a yacht in the Mediterranean when he receives orders to mount a top secret mission to rescue the general. But as the Marines prepare to land in the Syrian desert, they fall victim to a terrible accident. Swanson, the only survivor, then discovers they were also flying into an ambush. How did the enemy have details of a mission known only to a few top American government officials?   
 
Swanson takes off across the desert alone to find the captured general and realizes he is fighting a particularly ruthless and dangerous enemy: American mercenaries working for a very-high-level group of U.S. officials with ties to the White House itself, part of a clandestine conspiracy whose hidden goal is nothing less than total control of the American military. Their sworn enemy is the captured general whose fate now rests in Swanson’s hands.   
 
Filled with the kind of action that author Jack Coughlin lived during his career as a Marine sniper, Kill Zone marks the debut of an extraordinary new series.
