Matthew Betley Synopsis: Overwatch is the first Logan West thriller by Matthew Betley. When Logan West impulsively answers a dead man’s ringing phone, it begins a global race against the clock to track down an unknown organization searching for an Iraqi artifact that is central to a planned attack in the Middle East – one that will pit the United States into a major conflict with Iran. Logan, a former Marine officer, is quickly hired as a “consultant” to assist the FBI as part of a special task force bent on stopping the shadowy operatives, no matter the cost. The battles are nonstop, from the plains of the Midwest, to mansions in northern Mexico, to the war-torn Al-Anbar province, pitting an international team against trained mercenaries employed by the world’s largest private security contractor… whose owner has a grudge against the US government. Meanwhile, Logan is battling his own demons, especially the trauma of the ambush that his Force Recon unit suffered at an insurgent torture compound in Fallujah in 2004, which threatens to destroy everything he holds dear.

    In overwatch John quick is taking sniper fire at his A frame house. In my experience, you never hear the shot because the bullet arrives long before the sound.. There’s a saying if you hear the shot. You weren’t the target. This author is a sniper trainer?
