"There's tension, turmoil, and drama on every page. It's a story of action, history, and secrets that is as imaginative as it is compelling. Add this one to your keeper shelf." --Steve Berry, #1 New York Times and Internationally Bestselling Author of The Patriot and The 14th Colony
"Betley continues to turn the screws with the relentless action, unbearable tension, and terrifying threats that we all loved in Overwatch. With Oath of Honor, he cements his position as one of the genre's new stars." --Kyle Mills, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
A break-neck, edge-of-your-seat thriller that moves from a resurgent Russian threat in the Aleutian Islands to North Korean spy ships to secret Sudanese prisons as former Marines Logan West and John Quick, now members of an FBI special task force, uncover a global conspiracy that threatens America's position in the current international balance of power.
Logan West and John Quick are sent to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, to investigate the possible presence of a Russian black ops team on a mission to steal United States next-generation technology. The resulting violent confrontation triggers a global search for the stolen technology and threatens to pit the US against China in a looming shadow war and technology race. As Logan and John--joined by the chief of the CIA's Special Operations Group, Cole Matthews--battle their way through Spain, the Mediterranean, and ultimately, across Sudan, an imminent threat arises at home that FBI Deputy Director Mike Benson must face and determine if it is part of the deadly global conspiracy.
Oath of Honor is an intense and gripping follow-up to former Marine Matthew Betley's "brilliantly conceived" (Clive Cussler) Overwatch and solidifies his place among the greatest contemporary thriller writers.

Betleys exciting sequel to 2016s Overwatch takes series heroes Logan West and John Quick, investigators in a specialized FBI task force, to the Aleutians. They are hunting down members of a Russian black ops team. The Russians are seeking to steal technology code-named ONERING, a new U.S. weapons system that has the ability to hijack any space satellite. The theft is the plan of Namir Badawi, the head of Sudans internal security division, whos determined to humiliate the United States and bring about glory to Sudan as part of a new world order. From Alaska, Logan and John pursue the bad guys around the globe, always one step behind Namir and Maj. Gang Lau, his Chinese spy henchman. Betleys fight scenes are among the best in the genre, but overuse of internal dialogue and unfunny banter between the principals slow the pace and add a cartoonish character to the writing. Still, readers willing to suspend some disbelief and put up with all the wisecracks will find the action diverting enough to look forward to future installments. Agent: Will Roberts, Gernert Company.
