**FROM FORMER GREEN BERET AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR JASON KASPER**
David Rivers is used to his targets being chosen by the CIA.
But this time, the target has chosen him.
When a senator’s daughter is kidnapped in Benghazi, a Filipino terrorist named Khalil Noureddin claims responsibility and demands to negotiate with only one man: the leader of a CIA team that tried and failed to kill him over a year ago.
David remembers the failure all too clearly. And while his team narrowly escaped a ruthless terrorist force, the attempt catapulted Khalil into international notoriety and caused him to vanish completely—until now.
With David surrendering himself to Khalil to facilitate hostage negotiations, and his team embarking on a harrowing infiltration across Libya to support the rescue effort, the clock is ticking with an innocent woman’s life hanging in the balance.
But capturing a high-profile hostage is just one element of Khalil’s plan.
To uncover a far more insidious plot unfolding in Libya, David’s team will have to negotiate brutal militias, Russian mercenaries, and operatives of a mysterious terrorist syndicate…before it’s too late.

Savagely violent and exceptionally inspirational with a delicious side of retribution, Beast Three Six is a tale of good vs. evil with the good guys putting it all on the line against the odds to save a hostage – and perhaps countless innocents – from gruesome and undeserving death. Jason Kasper delivers another balls-to-the-wall, nonstop action covert operations thriller that gets your heart pumping and your forehead sweaty from substantial anxiety and anticipation.
Olivia Gossweiler, the daughter of a US senator and chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has been kidnapped by terrorists and is being held captive in Benghazi, Libya. The leader of this terrorist group, Khalil, has an interesting first demand – he will only negotiate with David Rivers, with whom he tangled with in the past. David agrees and is sent over to negotiate while his Project Longwing teammates prep the area of operations for the Navy SEALs in case a hostage rescue is needed. And it is needed because Khalil is the real deal and has no intentions of letting Olivia or David live through this ordeal…not to mention he has grander aspirations of launching additional terror attacks soon. But when the timetable is suddenly moved up and the SEALs not yet on target, it’s up to the 5 men of this disposable unit – plus a willing and highly capable Combat Controller – to go up against insurmountable odds by attacking a fortified position defended by an overwhelming force to attempt a rescue. It’s what Suicide Actual and his team live for. Though living through this will take all the skill and luck they can muster.
While Beast Three Six is a ceaseless thrill ride with relentless action and an incredibly high body count that will please even the most hardcore military thriller fan, what stands out from the viciousness and terrorism is an inspirational story of doing what is necessary to succeed in your mission. The men of Project Longwing know the deal. They are a deniable and expendable unit that are sent into untenable situations with low likelihood of success. Yet they continue to thrive and win the day, with this operation hopefully no different. They are constantly adapting to the changing landscape, equally able to think strategically and sling lead downrange, and put the wellbeing of others ahead of their own. They don’t complain or sulk that the original plans change or that the bad guys don’t play fair. They just tie their boots, grab their gear and sprint headfirst towards the danger. They are admirable, selfless, tough men who never quit. And if that isn’t inspiring as all hell, then I don’t know what is.
The whole series is fantastic, but Beast Three Six raises the bar to another level. It’s a killer story with emotion. Fast paced and ferocious. Merciless and uplifting. Exhilarating and gripping from the first page to the last. Jason Kasper writes phenomenal thrillers and is a must read anytime he publishes a new book. Don’t miss this one!
Beast Three Six is the fifth installment of the Shadow Strike Series featuring David "Suicide" RIvers and his off the books group. This time a Filipino terrorist kidnaps a senator's daughter and demands that David be the negotiator for her release. The terrorist and David crossed paths in a previous story where things did not go well for anyone. Now David is on his own in Libya trying to get the young woman released while the group is working on a daring rescue mission. Things are not always as they seem, many twists and turns all the way to a thrilling finish.
This series gets better and better. After a disturbing call from Duchess the guys are picked up in federal transport to see what their fate is. When they find out two things happen shock and awe.
Read the next adventure in this series that will have you cheering these guys on more than we already do.
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I have been intrigued by this author but have not read any of his books previously. After reading this book, that seems like a poor decision. This book had a lot of action, was fast paced, and had memorable characters. Some of it was a bit implausible but it pushed the story along and made the ending a whole lot better. The daughter of an important senator is kidnapped and a former special operator is requested by name by the kidnapper to meet with him to discuss the terms of the release. A former meeting of these two is the basis of much of the story and I really enjoyed it. I look forward to reading more from this author.
David Rivers is back in the fifth book of this exciting series as a super (anti)hero in this thriller filled with international good guys and bad guys. David is always operating with a target on his back, and in this story the bad guys are zeroing in on him.
A fun read! The book continues the story of this series. It is easy to follow and not get lost without reading this authors other series. The story incorporates from the characters past and gives enough of a backstory to help newer readers of this author. A very fast paced story that is hard to put down, nonstop action. Mixes in the right amount of politics and story development.
This is a must read, especially for fans of the author. Can't wait for the next book in the series
