Alex Brandenburg: SEAL Chief Petty Officer and Outcasts Team Leader. Disobeyed direct orders by refusing to let a deadly terrorist live to kill another day. Francisco “Pancho” Rodriguez and John Landry: SEAL Petty Officers First Class. Took the pursuit of justice into their own hands with explosive results. Catherine “Cat” Fares. Navy Petty Officer. Holds an unbeatable record for pissing off the top brass with her strongly stated opinions on the combat readiness of women.
The team’s mission: Take out the seven terror merchants vying to take Bin Laden’s place. The team’s status: Expendable.
When America’s controversial Phoenix Program was buried during the Vietnam War, a new program rose from its ashes. A top-secret Special Operations unit, with a core mission to combat terror wherever they find it, Bitter Ash grew ever more necessary in a new world of Islamic fanaticism. Now, Bitter Ash is forming a special team, a SEAL Team Six with a difference. It is Tier One, on par with SEAL Team Six and Delta, but it will report directly to Bitter Ash, and its fight will take place under the cover of dark.
With Bin Laden dead, the petty leaders within al Qaeda struggle to assume his role at the top. The president of the United States doesn’t want any of them left to dominate . . . and that means he has only one choice. But doing what’s needed without political repercussions will take a small team flying under the radar. A team capable of finessing the U.N.’s distinctions on national sovereignty and acts of war. A team like the Outcasts.
With no official support from their government and no one to rely on but themselves, the Outcasts must track down each target. Hot on the tail of the third, Brandenburg and the team start to realize that they are closing in on a larger plot, one that puts the security of the United States in dangerous jeopardy. The terrorists are threatening American territory once again, and the Outcasts will have to do what SEALs do best. Whatever it takes to keep their country safe.

Though Wasdin and Templin worked together on the former's recent memoir, SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper, Wasdin's background doesn't translate into an exciting read in this contemporary thriller centered around a rogue group of American operatives. A sniper team stationed on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border is assigned to take out one of the Taliban's leading bomb makers. But when Abu al-Zubaydi, the terrorist, crosses into Pakistan, team leader and Chief Petty Officer Alexander Brandenburg defies orders to abstain from firing, and takes the killshot. Upon his return to headquarters, Brandenburg is booted off the team for disobeying, but lands on his feet as a member of a new SEAL team that is "smaller, quieter, and tasked with targeted solutions to…thorny problems." His new comrades include an attractive woman (of course) who poses as his wife on an assignment, but the evil plan they're assigned to foil lacks imagination. Fans of military thrillers should stick with Tom Clancy. (May)
