The Ranger Objective

A David Rivers Short Story

HIS FIRST MISSION.
HIS FIRST ENEMY.
AND THE DECISION THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING…

Before he was an assassin, David Rivers was a patriot.

One year after the 9/11 attacks, David is a nineteen-year-old Army Ranger on patrol in Afghanistan's Shigal Valley, a desolate place with a fearsome reputation for harboring enemy fighters—a reputation that David and his fellow Rangers are about to experience firsthand.

As the first shots ring out over the valley, David must decide between military orders and gut instinct...and in the process, discover a hidden truth about himself.

Praise for the David Rivers Series

I was left gasping for breath more than once when the story was moving along at a breakneck speed... As always, there are Mr. Kasper's trademark high-octane, adrenaline-fueled, loop-de-loop, in-your-face action sequences to keep the reader glued to the pages.

The writing is right up there with Patterson and Clancy.

Jason Kasper has created a superb hero in David Rivers. Fast moving, action packed, great characters. Plot twists keep you on the edge of your seat. What more could you want in a thriller?

Evocative of a Brad Thor or Tom Clancy work, but from an author who has experienced 21st century combat and its ensuing challenges.

Only the great Tom Clancy has captured my attention with this level of intrigue.

The action is fast paced and compares favorably with the writing of Vince Flynn, Mark Greaney, Brad Thor, Ben Coes, or Mark Dawson. I can't wait for his next book!
