The Green Beret Series by NY Times Bestselling Author, former Green Beret and West Point Graduate, Bob Mayer

Covert operative Horace Chase has been chasing ghosts his entire life. 
 

First, his Medal-of-Honor winner father who died in Vietnam without ever meeting his son. And left him the legacy of an automatic appointment to the Military Academy at West Point which shaped the next thirty-five years of Chase's life. Then, the ghost of his mother, who died while he was at war in Afghanistan and wounded, causing him to resign his commission and return to the United States, a lost soul.

Chase now wears two hats as a Federal counter-terrorism liaison to the local police department in Boulder, Colorado where he becomes embroiled in two seemingly un-related cases. Working as a detective with Boulder PD he chases another death, this one the apparent rape/murder of Rachel Stevens, an upscale housewife attending night classes at the University of Colorado. And with his counter-terrorism team he is embroiled in a series of killings involving a militia group, a rogue ex-Special Forces officer, a psychopathic ex-CIA contract mercenary, and ruthless drug runners.

From the streets of Boulder, to the highest railroad tunnel in the world, to a swingers club hiding in plain site in suburbia, Afghanistan starts to look pretty good to Chase.

What if US Army Green Berets led by Dave Riley must take on not only criminal drug traffickers but also betray their own government?

A US Army Special Forces team carrying sterilized weapons and unmarked uniforms is on its way to Colombia. The mission: conduct covert, unilateral raids to destroy cocaine processing laboratories.

Of course nothing is as it seems especially once the CIA gets involved. Throw in an Israeli mercenary, betrayal and double-dealing in Washington and the team soon finds itself wondering what the real mission is.

“A scorcher of a novel. Mayer had me hooked from the very first page.” Stephen Coonts

From Publishers Weekly
When Colombia secretly requests U.S. aid against the drug cartel, a Special Forces A-Team becomes the "eyes" guiding gunships and helicopters--the "hammer"--against jungle cocaine-processing labs. Then treachery leaves four Green Berets dead and one in the hands of the "Ring Man," deadliest of the drug lords. Special Forces warrant officer Riley and CIA agent Kate Westland are sent in to kill the Ring Man and rescue the prisoner. Their slim chances sink to near-zero when Washington pulls the plug on the mission. But before his people are abandoned, a veteran Special Forces colonel still has a few cards to play. In his first novel (launching a series), former Green Beret Mayer successfully establishes the nuanced differences among U.S. Special Operations units: rangers, Delta Force and Special Forces. But his story line jumps unconvincingly from covert infiltration mission to secret agent-type assassination to commando raid. Descriptions of the tools of unconventional warfare are static, and characters, with the exception of agent Westland, never achieve full dimension.

From Library Journal
A thriller that delivers in all areas--plot, suspense, authenticity, and pace. Riley, a Special Forces man, is sent to one of a series of invasions of Colombia to destroy cocaine processing plants. After two successes and one failure, he is assigned to terminate a drug lord. His companion is a woman, Westland, a CIA agent. The intrigue and plotting of the military and various government agencies, in the United States and Colombia, and the incredible Colombian corruption are interwoven into a minor masterpiece of technology and suspense. The climax will have the reader yearning for more nails to bite. A first novel by a former Green Beret, this is not to be missed by fans of the genre.
