Will the Reapers bring peace and stability to the world?
The world is suffering from the effects of out-of-control terrorism. Governments are spending huge amounts of precious capital for the safety and security of air and rail transportation as well as inspections at all sea ports. The global economic effect is crippling; countries struggle to manage commerce, international trade, business growth, job creation and tourism. The world’s economy is on the brink of collapse.
The Global Defense Organization™ (GDO) has been created to be a cost effective multinational elite group that monitors, infiltrates and eliminates terrorist activities within all supporting countries. Known only as Reaper Two-Six™, this secret 48 member squadron has quickly earned a reputation for precisely eliminating terrorist threats, in the air and on the ground.
Why did China and Columbia oppose the creation of the GDO? Are they connected to global terrorist cells? Are they secretly financing the sale of weapons?
The Reaper’s greatest challenge is now upon them; infiltrate China and Columbia to discover their real intentions. Through a series of electrifying and heart-stopping missions, see how the Reapers use their skills and advanced technology to put fear back where it belongs, in the minds of the terrorists, not in the minds of its citizens.

Review:Being a daughter of a Army Veteran this book intrigued me, though its not my normal type of read. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it being so far different than what I normal read, but the author quickly won me over.
This book was full of action from the being and grabbed my attention as well. I didn't feel lost like I thought I would be. The author did an excellent job in explaining how this organization(secret group) worked.
The Reaper Two-Six is a secret military squadron assigned to take care of any kind of terrorism threat and in this book they are trying to stop a major country determined in taking over all the world's resources in effect take over the world.
This book also fits in with what a lot is happening today or what could happen. which is a scary thought. I enjoyed this book very much and I highly recommend this book to any fan of military fiction.
