Kill Zone (A Sniper Novel) : An American general is captured in the Middle East by terrorists who now threaten to behead him. But, moments before he falls unconscious, the general notices that his captors are speaking English. So what is going on here? Gunnery-Sergeant Kyle Swanson is on holiday 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 desert, they fall victim to a terrible, unforeseen disaster. Swanson, the only survivor, then discovers they were flying into a deliberate ambush. But how could the enemy have details of a mission known only to a few top U.S. government officials? He takes off alone to locate the captured general and realizes he is fighting a particularly ruthless enemy - with links leading to the White House itself. As the power-mongers jostle for control, the fate of the captured general - and ultimately of the nation itself - now rests solely in Swanson's hands.
