“A great book...it’s f*cking riveting!” —Joe Rogan
“Take my word for it, James Reece is one rowdy motherf***er. Get ready!”—Chris Pratt, star of The Terminal List, coming to Amazon Prime
“A rare gut-punch writer, full of grit and insight, who we will be happily reading for years to come.” —Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times bestselling author of the Orphan X series
In this third high-octane thriller in the “seriously good” (Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author) Terminal List series, former Navy SEAL James Reece must infiltrate the Russian mafia and turn the hunters into the hunted.
Deep in the wilds of Siberia, a woman is on the run, pursued by a man harboring secrets—a man intent on killing her.
A traitorous CIA officer has found refuge with the Russian mafia with designs on ensuring a certain former Navy SEAL sniper is put in the ground.
Half a world away, James Reece is recovering from brain surgery in the Montana wilderness, slowly putting his life back together with the help of investigative journalist Katie Buranek and his longtime friend and SEAL teammate Raife Hastings. Unbeknownst to them, the Russian mafia has set their sights on Reece in a deadly game of cat and mouse.
In his most visceral and heart-pounding thriller yet, Jack Carr explores the darkest instincts of humanity through the eyes of a man who has seen both the best and the worst of it.

Fun read with lots of excitement. I didn’t want to put it down. Highly recommended!
Best SPY Book
By Spy Life
I have been a die hard fan of Vince Flynn/Brad Thor for 18 years. That’s how I discovered Jack Carr. Most of the time in my experience the origin story (the first book) leaves a lasting imprint that gets you stick with the author but the rest of the books rarely out due the original. Until Jack Carr came along. This is book 3 in the series. Never in my wildiest dreams could I have imagined Jack Carr being able to out due book 1 of this series. Well he did. Not only would I say this book was incredible. I would go this far. It’s the best spy book I’ve ever read. James Reece. Wow. Can’t wait for the Amazon series coming in 2022!
Another exciting thriller by Carr
Jack Carr has quickly cemented himself as the next great spec ops thriller author, on par with greats like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and Brad Taylor. Savage Son will be his next best seller as it’s his best one yet. Carr’s transition from Navy Seal commander to best selling author has been just as impressive as his long career as a decorated Navy Seal and war fighter. Savage Son is packed with action, but what truly sets it and Carr’s other books apart from other authors in the genre is Carr’s Tom Clancy-like very detailed and realistic descriptions of spec-operator tactics and weapon systems. I couldn’t put this book down and finished in a day.
UPDATE: I read this book a 2nd time, along with re-reading the 1st and 2nd novels in this series, in order to refresh my memory of the storyline, before reading Carr’s new release, “The Devil’s Hand”, which is the 4th book in this series. I enjoyed this book just as much as the 1st time I read it.
At the end of the 2nd book in this series, in the author’s notes, Carr gives recognition to the influence of some other great authors in the same genre, Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Tom Clancy, Mark Greaney, Dan Silva, Stephen Hunter, and a few others.
I’ve read every book by every one of these authors and I have to say that Jack Carr has quickly risen among their ranks and is right up there with the best of them. The one thing that Carr has, that none of these authors have, is his 20 years of real world experience as a war fighter in U.S. Special Operation, serving in the Navy Seals as a Team Leader, Platoon Commander, Troop Commander and Task Unit Commander.
Over his 20 years in Naval Special Warfare, Carr transitioned from an enlisted SEAL sniper, to a junior officer leading assault and sniper teams in Iraq and Afghanistan, to a platoon commander, to commanding a Special Operations Task Unit.
This real world experience, as a war fighter and leader of men in U.S. Special Operation, adds a tremendous level of realism and detail to Carr’s novels that just isn’t possible for a civilian author who never served as a war fighter, no matter how much research they do and no matter how many military experts they consult with.
Brad Taylor is the only other author that I’m aware of, in this same genre, who also has similar real world experience serving as a war fighter and leader in U.S. Special Operations. Like Carr, Taylor served for more than 21 in the U.S. Army, retiring in 2010 as a Special Forces Lieutenant colonel. Taylor spent 8-years in 1st Special Forces Operations Detachment— known as Delta Force.
Bottom line, Jack Carr has quickly risen to be one of the best authors in this genre. This book is outstanding, just like the 1st and 2nd books in this series. I can’t wait to start reading Carr’s latest masterpiece, “The Devil’s Hand”.
Best Book in the series
Great book from start to finish. Best of the series so far IMO
I’m not one to constantly grab a book and read, but I picked this up at the airport waiting for a long day of flying. What an amazing story, finished it within a few days and purchased the other 2 Jack Carr wrote prior
