On November 6th, former Navy SEAL and Tier One operator John Dempsey returns in American Operator, an all-new novel from the dynamic writing team of Brian Andrews and Jeffrey Wilson.
Andrews & Wilson first introduced Dempsey to the thriller world in 2016’s Tier One, their critically-acclaimed novel that featured a raw and honest look at what individuals go through in order to protect innocent Americans from the dangers lurking in the darkness all around our great country. To better fight those threats, Dempsey gives up everything, including his family, shedding his identity in order to go after the terrorists plotting and planning to strike a blow to the United States.
Not only is he on the front lines of the war on terror, Dempsey walks in the shadows along with the bad guys. . . quickly becoming their worst nightmare.
Dempsey’s personal sacrifice is America’s gain, and the authors deployed a fascinating story structure that saw one main story arc play out over the first three novels, including War Shadows and Crusader One, which came out last December.
Without giving anything from the first three books away, that long arc was essentially tied up at the conclusion of Crusader One. . . so while we don’t yet know what threat Dempsey will face next, Book Spy followers are getting an exclusive first look at the bold and striking cover art for American Operator. Check it out below!
