    Former brigadier general turned best-selling author A.J. Tata (

    , 2017) kicks off his fourth Jake Mahegan thriller with a powerful opening that introduces readers to Jackknife, a cold-blooded killer who serves as a worthy antagonist and a formidable opponent for Tata’s hero.

    After slaughtering a billionaire banker and his family in the dark of the night, Jackknife turns his attention to the next name on his list–former Army paratrooper and ex-Delta Force operative, Jake Mahegan.

    Meanwhile, upon receiving an urgent text from General Bob Savage over his secure Zebra communications app instructing him to meet former Delta teammates, Patch Owens and Sean O’Malley, Jake Mahegan heads to a rustic cabin in the middle of the Longleaf Pine Golf Resort located in North Carolina’s golf mecca, Moore County. There, Jake walks into a trap, which ends worse for those foolish enough to think they could trap an apex predator with nothing more than a few AR-15s.

    Armed with his trusty Sig Saur Tribal, Jake flees to General Savage’s “continuation of operations protocol command center,” better known as the COOP. There, he meets up with Alexandra “Alex” Russell, a JAG attorney and colleague of Savage who’s investigating the murder case involving the banker and his family.

    When Jake recognizes the murder weapon in question as the same .45 Colt Ranger special that his unit gave to Savage, he realizes there’s a deeper plot hard at work behind the scenes. Unbeknownst to Mahegan and Alex, a terrorist hellbent on exacting revenge on America is secretly assembling terrorist cells in the Blue Ridge Mountains, which is just the tip of the iceberg.

    As Jake races to connect the dots and figure out the terrorists’ intended targets, Tata kicks the pacing into overdrive–making an already fun and compelling story certifiably unputdownable.

    Where Tata separates himself from the competition is with his unique and terrifying attack scenarios. The all-too-real feel of panic and suspense is critical to getting lost in the story, and Tata continues to improve as a writer, making it easier for readers to believe what’s happening as he brings it to life on the page.

    Likewise, Tata’s continued to develop his series protagonist, hitting all the right notes with the last two books especially. Direct Fire sees a slightly different Jake Mahegan, who finally displays the full effects of his ridiculously lethal skill set, and it’s awesome.

    Mahegan, a thirty-year-old Native American with a love for the ocean flowing freely in his blood and a call to duty seemingly written into his DNA, is a walking, talking weapon. More prone to brute force than surgical strikes, Jake is no doubt one of the baddest men in the thriller genre right now. While the blazing-fast plot is tight and on point, Tata’s real treat to readers is finally unleashing his operative, who continues living up to all the hype promised in past books, like they’ve never seen before.

    Evil men might be planning to bring the war on terror to America, but what they weren’t counting on is Jake Mahegan being there to greet them…

    Jake Mahegan has officially arrived.

    is a relentless, action-packed thriller that screams with been-there-done-that authenticity, elevating A.J. Tata’s series to the likes of Brad Thor, Ben Coes, and Mark Greaney.

    This was AJ Tata's best book yet.

  • Lonnie Mixell

    This was the first book I have read by AJ Tata and I am hooked!

    I was totally invested in the characters and the author had me guessing through most of book on a couple of pieces of intrigue and it was a really fun and thrilling story that has me eager to buy the previous books of the series.

    Clayton Mahegan, the Hawk Wolf, is back in another thriller

    Former Army paratrooper, ex-Delta Force operative and Native American from the Outer Banks of North Carolina Chayton "Jake" Mahegan is back in another thriller authored by retired Brigadier General A.J. Tata. The story takes place in North Carolina with flashbacks to a disastrous mission in Syria.

    This time Jake is on the run PLUS looking for Syrian terrorists on U.S. soil. Framed for the murder of a family, Jake is doing all he can to stay away from law enforcement, the Syrians, and the military.

    Acts of terrorism including murder, hindering banking and transportation are happening in the U.S. and to U.S. citizens on foreign soil, all to cloud the waters to the terrorists main objective.

    Jake is helped along the way by the daughter of a general and also one of the first female graduates of the U.S. Army’s elite Ranger school.

    This is a very fast-paced thriller that was a bit convoluted at times when it didn't necessarily need to be. I would have rated this with 3.5 stars if I could have but rounded up to 4 stars because it did hold my attention all the way through.

    I received this book from Kensington Books through Net Galley in the hopes that I would read the book and leave an unbiased review.

  • Sean Courtney

    This was the first AJ Tata book that I’ve read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love the way he describes the mountain setting and Jake Mahegan is such a cool character to get to know. Some of the dialogue from the lesser characters was kind of silly and the ending could have been better but overall a fantastic book and I’ll be reading more of AJ Tata.

  • Glen

    Thanks to NetGalley for this novel.

    An Islamic group is trying to decapitate the US Military, and largely succeed. Jake Mahegan, after shooting his way out of an ambush, makes his way to the rendezvous, and finds himself on the run from the law, while at the same time, trying to stop the terrorists, who have a few creative attacks in store.

    I think AJ Tata hit his stride with this one.

  • Bobbie

    Not bad. The story reminds me of Brad Taylor's books. The story is good but there are so many characters and so much going on that the plot sometimes get lost

  • Bill Donhiser

    This is my first A.J. Tata novel and I found it to be an excellent adventure albeit similar to many other military thrillers. The plot is great the characters are engaging and the writing is well done. I am going to go back and read the rest of the series in order
