(Warning: These episodes contain spoilers.)

    In this episode, they discuss book 3, SAVAGE SON.

    From the publisher:

    A traitorous CIA officer has found refuge with the Russian Mafia with designs on ensuring a certain former Navy SEAL sniper is put in the ground.

    Half a world away, James Reece is recovering from brain surgery in the Montana wilderness of his youth, learning to live again, putting his life back together with the help of investigative journalist Katie Buranek and his longtime friend and SEAL teammate Raife Hastings.

    For reasons both personal and professional, the Russian intelligence-mafia consortium has their sights set on removing a player from the board before he can return to the battlefield, targeting Reece on U.S. soil.

    With an unknown entity inside the U.S. government compromised by Russian intelligence, Reece is forced to recruit a team of former commandos to bring his unique brand of vengeance to the Russian Mafia on their home turf, turning the hunters into the hunted.

    Operating at the nexus of an evolving hybrid form of warfare involving terrorist organizations, drug cartels, human trafficking syndicates, cyber technologies, and organized crime, James Reece stands head and shoulders above the fray as the go-to covert operative in a new war.

    Applying the experience and emotions from real-world combat to the pages of the political thriller, Jack Carr once again brings readers on a behind the scenes journey into the mind of a modern-day special operations soldier, dispensing an ancient form of justice in today’s modern geopolitical landscape.

    Jack Carr elevates the genre to new heights in his most visceral novel to date exploring the dark side of man through the eyes of a warrior who has seen both the depravity of conflict and the strength of the human spirit, cementing his position as the new leader in political thrillers!

    Deeply personal and intoxicating, Savage Son illuminates the darkest instincts of the human consciousness and will keep you glued to the page until that last bullet finds its mark.

(Warning: These episodes contain spoilers.)

    In this episode, they discuss book 2, TRUE BELIEVER.

    From the publisher:

    When a bomb goes off during a holiday fair in London, the body count is horrific and the nation’s market goes into a tailspin. This, it turns out, is just the beginning of a series of coordinated and murderous attacks against the whole of the Western world. As the scope of the mayhem grows ever wider, pulling in country after country, the United States goes on the offensive. Who is pulling the strings? What is their motive? And most important of all, how can the attacks be stopped before bloodshed and economic freefall bring America and her allies to their knees?

    There is just one man who stands a chance of answering these questions. Former Navy SEAL James Reece is the only and crucial connection to a shadowy former Iraqi commando who could provide leads the CIA desperately needs. Reece might be America’s last hope. Unfortunately, he is also America’s most-wanted domestic terrorist. To rein him in, a bargain is struck and Reece becomes the reluctant tool of the United States government, traveling the globe to target terrorist lead- ers and unraveling a geopolitical conspiracy involving a traitorous CIA officer and a sinister assassination plot with worldwide repercussions. There is always another true believer out there willing to kill for his cause. James Reece will be there to stop him.

    A high-intensity roller-coaster ride, True Believer explodes with action and authenticity that cements Jack Carr as the new leader in political thrillers.

    A Navy SEAL has nothing left to live for and everything to kill for after he discovers that the American government is behind the deaths of his team in this ripped-from-the-headlines political thriller.

    On his last combat deployment, Lieutenant Commander James Reece’s entire team was killed in a catastrophic ambush that also claimed the lives of the aircrew sent in to rescue them. 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.

    Over 6,000 miles away, former Navy SEAL James Reece watches the names and pictures of the victims on cable news. One face triggers a distant memory of a Mossad operative attached to the CIA years earlier in Iraq—a woman with ties to the intelligence services of two nations…a woman Reece thought he would never see again.

    Reece enlists friends new and old across the globe to track down her killer, unaware that he may be walking into a deadly trap.

    ONLY THE DEAD (Terminal List Book 6) Sneak Preview - Danger Close with Jack Carr

    views May 3, 2023

    As the release date for Only the Dead quickly approaches, Danger Close listeners get a special early listen to the prologue and first two chapters, read by Ray Porter. You can pre-order the audiobook now.

    About Only the Dead:
    In 1980, a freshman congressman was gunned down in Rhode Island, sending shockwaves through Washington that are still reverberating over four decades later.

    Now, with the world on the brink of war and a weakened United States facing rampant inflation, political division, and shocking assassinations, a secret cabal of global elites is ready to assume control. And with the world’s most dangerous man locked in solitary confinement, the conspirators believe the final obstacle to complete domination has been eliminated. They’re wrong.
    From the firms of Wall Street to the corridors of power in Washington, DC, and Moscow, secrets from the past have the uncanny ability to rise to the surface in the present.

    With the odds stacked against him, James Reece is on a mission generations in the making. Unfortunately for his enemies, the former SEAL is not concerned with odds. He is on the warpath. And when James Reece picks up his tomahawk and sniper rifle, no one is out of range.

    5.7K views March 15, 2023

    On today’s episode, Jack is joined by Clint Hill and Lisa McCubbin Hill.

    Clint is a retired United States Secret Service Special Agent and Assistant Director who served five presidential administrations from 1958 to 1975: Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford.
    The defining moment of his career came when he jumped onto the back of the presidential limousine in an effort to protect President Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy during the President’s assassination.

    Lisa McCubbin Hill is an award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author.

    In 2009, while working with Gerard Blaine on The Kennedy Detail: JFK's Secret Service Agents Break Their Silence, Lisa met Clint Hill, convincing him to share the memories he buried for 50 years. Today, Clint credits Lisa with helping him “find a reason to live, not just exist.”

    Together, Lisa and Clint have co-authored several New York Times bestselling books including Mrs. Kennedy and Me, a memoir of the four years Clint spent with Jacqueline Kennedy, Five Days in November, an account of the Kennedy assassination, and Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford, covering the period from 1958 to 1975.

    Their latest My Travels with Mrs. Kennedy is available now.

    Ric Prado: Interview Revisited - Danger Close with Jack Carr

    3.4K views February 22, 2023

    Note: This episode originally aired in April 2022.

    Today’s guest is legendary CIA paramilitary and operations officer Enrique “Ric” Prado.

    Ric is a retired CIA operations officer who specialized in paramilitary, counter-terrorism and special/clandestine operations. Escaping Cuba as a child amidst the violence of Castro’s Cuban Revolution, he would go on to retire as the CIA equivalent of a two-star general after serving for twenty-four years in the nation’s premier intelligence service which included 36 months as the first CIA officer to live in the anti-Sandinista “Contra” camps and later as Deputy Chief of Station of the original Bin Laden Task Force.

    His new New York Times bestselling memoir Black Ops: The Life of a CIA Shadow Officer takes a deep dive into a truly exceptional career filled with assassins, terrorists, spies and revolutionaries. Prado’s memoir highlights not only the complexities of America’s shadow wars, but the extreme courage, creativity and perseverance it takes to execute such missions inside the most demanding and hostile environments.

    First Look: ‘Only the Dead’ - Danger Close with Jack Carr

    14.7K views January 11, 2023

    As the release date for ONLY THE DEAD quickly approaches, Danger Close listeners get exclusive access to the Audiobook prologue read by Ray Porter.


    From the publisher:

    Navy SEAL James Reece faces a devastating global conspiracy in this high-adrenaline thriller that is ripped from the headlines—from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Jack Carr.

    In 1980, a freshman congressman was gunned down in Rhode Island, sending shockwaves through Washington that are still reverberating over four decades later.

    Now, with the world on the brink of war and a weakened United States facing rampant inflation, political division, and shocking assassinations, a secret cabal of global elites is ready to assume control. And with the world’s most dangerous man locked in solitary confinement, the conspirators believe the final obstacle to complete domination has been eliminated. They’re wrong.

    From the firms of Wall Street to the corridors of power in Washington, DC, and Moscow, secrets from the past have the uncanny ability to rise to the surface in the present. With the odds stacked against him, James Reece is on a mission generations in the making. Unfortunately for his enemies, the former SEAL is not concerned with odds. He is on the warpath. And when James Reece picks up his tomahawk and sniper rifle, no one is out of range.

    From “a master novelist” (Ballistic Magazine), Jack Carr brings his signature authenticity to “create an incredibly vivid, emotional, action-packed tapestry of carnage and death” (Coffee or Die Magazine) in a plot that just might predict the headlines of tomorrow.
