I've read a coupe of his books. Good story teller.
I'm re-reading The Terminal List by Jack Carr- excellent story!
On his last combat deployment, Lieutenant Commander James Reece’s entire team was killed in a catastrophic ambush. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government.
Now, with no family and free from the military’s command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he’s learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward avenging the deaths of his family and teammates. With breathless pacing and relentless suspense, Reece ruthlessly targets his enemies in the upper echelons of power without regard for the laws of combat or the rule of law.

Almost finished with Trigger Warning by William Johnstone. I love most of his books, his western's aren't my kind of thing but most of his other books are very entertaining. This one is definitely right up my ally.
