Michael Garin is the leader of a counter-WMD strike team, known only as “Omega.” Formed under the Joint Operational Command, Omega hand-picks the best of the best operators from various branches of the United States Armed Forces. As Clint Laws, a veteran spymaster and Garin’s mentor is fond of saying, “there are no coincidences in this business.” So when Garin spots something during a high-priority mission, he can’t shake the feeling that a bigger game is playing out behind the scenes. Returning to his apartment in northern Virginia after a successful mission, Garin walks into an ambush. Two highly-trained Iranian gunmen were waiting for him. Unfortunately for them, Garin sensed something was off and sprang into action before they could take him out. Within seconds, both intruders were dead. Knowing that the probability of a backup team waiting nearby (standard operating procedure among assassins) was high, Garin flees the scene and begins calling the only people he can trust–his teammates. After all of his calls go unanswered, Garin fears the worst and starts making rounds, checking on each member of his team in person. One by one, his suspicion that he wasn’t the only operator targeted was confirmed. Somebody came after all of the Omega operators, and he’s the only one who survived the assault. Going to the only person still alive whom he knows he can trust, Garin connects with his former business partner, Dan Dwyer, who owns a successful private security firm. With help from Dwyer, Garin finds several leads to track down and sets about to uncover the truth about who killed his team members, and why. Several flashback scenes show Garin during his days with the military. After many thought he flunked out of BUDS, failing to become a Navy SEAL, Garin popped back up on the radar when several American soldiers were pinned down in Iraq and taking heavy fire. Just as it looked like they would be overrun, a lone shooter appeared and started picking off enemy combatants. Such stories are par the norm whenever Garin’s name comes up within the special forces circles, where he’s revered as a living legend. While some of the tales of Garin’s heroic escapades are embellished, there’s absolutely no doubt that he remains one of the most lethal and most feared special ops soldiers in the world. As the story takes shape, the author reveals a hair-raising conspiracy that has been carefully and meticulously plotted. Several countries are secretly working together to coordinate a devastating attack on American soil, and only Garin knows who’s behind it all. His only allies are Dwyer and Olivia Perry, an aide to the National Security Advisor, who starts to put the pieces together much faster than her boss. A one-man vehicle of destruction, Garin leaves a path of bodies in his wake, which lands him on the FBI’s radar. With his own government believing him to be a killer on the loose, Garin soon finds himself being pursued by multiple countries, local law enforcement, one of the world’s most elite snipers, and the FBI. With the attack date fast approaching, Michael Garin must find a way to stay alive and out of federal custody in order to stop an attack that nobody else sees coming. After a few slightly choppy opening chapters, Peter Kirsanow settles into a groove and builds plenty of suspense to go hand-in-hand with his many action sequences. While some of the dialogue is a bit repetitive (especially in regards to each character’s understanding of Russia and what they will or won’t do) and the main character comes off as a bit too perfect at times, the final act gets a near-perfect score. It’s here that Kirsanow hits his stride, delivering a heart-pounding ending that will leave readers dying to get their hands on the next book. Target Omega is easily one of the best debut political thriller novels of the past decade, and fans of Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and Brad Taylor will enjoy Kirsanow’s blend of hard-hitting action and larger-than-life characters.

    Fast and thrilling, another addition to the 'special forces team leader on the run from everyone while trying to save the world and redeem his good name' genre. As is usual for these stories, his entire team is killed and even his mentor is threatened, what's a well-trained special forces op to do? In this case, a little bit of everything and all of it quickly with no spare time or wasted moves. The story is ripped from the headlines and the lead character is engaging enough to support a series.

Garin’s anti-WMD strike force is deployed in a successful mission to prevent a terrorist cell from acquiring a nuclear device. Within 48 hours of their return stateside, all but Garin have been killed by a deadly foreign operative. Finding himself the prime suspect in the deaths of his teammates, Garin goes rogue to uncover the motive behind their deaths and to stop a devastating attack against the United States. Okay, first off: this book is fun. This is the literary version of The White House has Fallen, Broken Arrow, Rambo, or anything starring John Cena. There are explosions, car chases, shoot ’em ups, and thoroughly implausible hand-to-hand vs. gun fights. The main characters are pretty one-sided and fulfill their genre-defined role, but with this type of story they don’t need to be anything more. This is a popcorn-grade summer action flick bound into paper format, and I enjoyed reading this book. On the other hand, as is common with this particular genre, there was a lot of ‘Murica flavored chest thumping, and red white and blue dick waving. highly enjoyable action scenes are interspersed with eye-roll worthy proclamations about what it means to be an American (guns, church, and apple pie), and the nature of the true enemy (pansy-ass liberals, duh). As I myself thoroughly own the title of bleeding heart liberal out to destroy all that makes America great, these darling little snippets did take away a bit from my enjoyment of the book (yes, I know, “cry me a river, snowflake”blah blah blah). So, in sum, I do recommend this book to those who love military-oriented action thrillers, or for anyone wanting an entertaining beach read this summer. It was a genuinely good book, after all. But if you’re the type to take red state MAGA asides with more than just an eye roll (and in the current political climate, I heartily sympathize), this may not be the book for you, at least not right now (maybe 2018? Hopefully?). So read the book, it’s fun, but with just enough family-member-you-avoid-talking-to-at-get-togethers to keep me from being able to whole-heartedly recommend it. An advance copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Decided to try this book based on a whim. Found the book interesting and the action was good and very descriptive. The plot had a sense of cold war and current events combined which I found interesting. However, there were times, I felt the author went into over-explaining situations or reasons. But mostly an enjoyable read.

    An elite team of back operatives is being picked off one by one. In a very efficient fashion and with no chance for the individual to defend themselves. This is not supposed to happen; nobody should even know of the team's existence. Only their leader, Michael Garin, appears to have survived, but the enemy is coming at him from all directions. His survival soon becomes paramount as it becomes clear that it is not only his life but something much more critical that is at stake.

    An exciting new voice in the thriller genre! What I liked: There are numerous thriller/suspense authors and yet, I have a hard time finding such a well-rounded, complete author. Mr. Kirsanow is the first I’ve found in a while. Yes, this is his first novel but, I couldn’t tell that by the way it was written. Target Omega grabbed me from the very beginning and believe me when I say, I didn’t want to stop. Only the late hours, tired eyes, and other commitments in my life made me stop reading. I’ve An exciting new voice in the thriller genre! What I liked: There are numerous thriller/suspense authors and yet, I have a hard time finding such a well-rounded, complete author. Mr. Kirsanow is the first I’ve found in a while. Yes, this is his first novel but, I couldn’t tell that by the way it was written. Target Omega grabbed me from the very beginning and believe me when I say, I didn’t want to stop. Only the late hours, tired eyes, and other commitments in my life made me stop reading. I’ve not done that since I started reading Vince Flynn or J. D. Robb. There are others that come close to the action packed, hold your breath thriller, but Target Omega felt more realistic in today’s world. The story is told through several points of view which in this case worked extremely well. I liked that the author didn’t hit you over the head with the clues as they were uncovered. In some instances, I drew the wrong conclusion but it made the action part of the book that much more enticing. While Mike Garin is the star, I can see where several other characters might continue in the series. At least, I hope they do. Mike is running for his life and trying to solve a deadly puzzle at the same time. The majority of his allies are dead or he is unable to reach them. Cut-off and on the run from foreign agents and the FBI, he finally makes some drastic decisions in order to get help. The story development, the timing, the plot, and the characters hit on all cylinders almost from the beginning. While you might think you have things figured out, Mr. Kirsanow will continually surprise you with the choices he uses to steer the storyline. Even though there is a conclusion to Target Omega, it’s left wide open for another book and I can’t wait. That’s the problem sometimes when you get an ARC that’s not coming out for months and you want the follow-up now. What I didn’t like: I have a feeling Mr. Kirsanow did this on purpose, but there were several loose plot/character points that weren’t resolved or explained. I am going to go back and re-read my copy because the clues abound and it’s up to you as the reader, to put them together. The e-book edition is $11.99 which is a bit steep but the hardcover at Amazon is $17.68. If I wasn't downsizing my "real book" collection, I would have bought the hardcover. I received an ARC of Target Omega from NetGalley for an honest review. Highly Recommended especially for suspense/thriller fans.

Michael Garin is a part of a top-secret counter-WMD team, Omega, that is sent out around the world to discover and dismantle WMDs. After a successful mission, he arrives back home to assassins trying to kill him. If the killers have gotten to him, his team must be in danger. Garin finds his team has been murdered, and he is the only one left alive. What’s worse, he knows the person, and the government, who is trying to kill him. The hunt is on to find out why Garin is being targeted. Garin reaches out to the only person he can trust who is still alive. Dan Dwyer, a head of a private security firm, was Garin’s instructor and mentor during Navy Seals BUDs training. With Dwyer’s infinite resources, Garin is able to track down leads and leaves too many bodies to count along the way. Back in Washington, aid to the National Security Advisor Olivia Perry is looking into Garin’s life. Perry also teams up with Dwyer to help figure why Garin’s being targeted. Together, all three piece together a conspiracy that leads to an impending terrorist attack on our nation. Will the team be able to keep Garin alive as well as stop a terrorist attack? This is a fantastic thriller. Written like a veteran writer, Kirsanow does a damn good job threading the perfectly executed action along with the character development. The character development had me hooked on the characters. I hope to see Dwyer and Perry in the upcoming novel, and I can’t wait read the next book.

    Action Packed Special Forces Type Yarn Mike Garin and his team have completed a successful mission in Pakistan to recover a nuclear device. This team is so special hardly anyone knows about it’s existence. Therefore, it’s surprising to have eight of the team members killed upon reentering the United States.

Garin, team leader, is the only one left alive. He goes underground and succeeds in wiping out the assassins, but now he’s the prime suspect in the murders. He’s been set up and now pursued by both the Iranians and the US government. This book is primarily a chase scene with plenty of violence thrown in. The plot is standard for this type of thriller. Garin is trying to save the US from a complex plot that could destroy the country. The author does a good job of bringing in the current international situation, but it’s primarily background for the action. If you like action heroes, Garin is almost too good. Some of the fight scenes are the stuff super heroes engage in. However, it you like a story with plenty of violence this is a good one. The scenes are well written and will keep you on the edge of your seat. The other characters are pretty much stereotypes. Olivia is the beautiful, brilliant aide who figures things out faster than her boss and has a strong positive reaction to Garin. This is the first book in what will become a series, so if you like it, you’ll see these character in action again. I received this book from Penguin for this review.

Mike Garin is an American hero and is representative of the boring, simple American. He actually believes and defends what Americans stand for. Garin is a little guy whose parents are killed while he is in high school, he is protected, guided and raised by an older sister and grows surprisingly into a world class athlete. The early development of his intellect and later of his physical skills resulted in person at the pinnacle of human abilities. The love of his sister and his grandfather, Pop, resulted in an American, the person that the founding fathers embodied and envisioned. Pop is an escapee from the Soviet Union whose story, I hope, is told in future a book. The plot of the story is a thrill ride that has disturbing plausibility. One hopes our national leaders recognize the dangers that we face. The potential that this story has to equal the Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp series is wonderful; I miss Vince Flynn. I only hope that Peter does not kill off Olivia - or Julie - as Flynn killed Anna Reilly. This is a great American hero. Read it and enjoy the ride!

It contains action parts that will hook you in until they’re finished. The book is a very fun read and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the military-action genre. Overall I would rate this book 4/5. It was a very fun read that kept me asking myself what would come next. I personally would’ve liked to see a less happy ending, but that may just be me. I can’t wait to read what comes next in Kirasnow’s saga.

    Look at the end of the prologue there's a sentence that says roughly, "Little did he know that the fate of the whole world depended on him." At that point, you know what kind of book/prose that you are getting into, so if you continue you really can't complain. As a thriller, well it is one. Not really more ridiculous than others of the genre, in fact perhaps a little more realistic than some. At the end of the day, once you decide it is the lightweight ride you signed up for, it is fine.

    At first the book was a little difficult to keep track of who's who as many different characters and settings were introduced. I felt like I needed to jot down notes. But once my brain was able to catch up, the story began to unfold nicely. I still have a few unanswered questions, but overall a good story with some kick-ass characters.

    The only thing that I did not like from the book was that the story fully continues into the second book. Just a pet peeve of mine as I now have to look for the second book to find out what happens. There is a lot of action with a really good story as well. Make Garin reminds me of a young Scott Harvath. A great debut for this author.

    This story is like a Russian nesting doll, the levels of lies and deception throughout take you on a rollercoaster ride that you won't soon forget. I'll definitely be reading the next one to see where it's going. Penguin First to Read ARC, had problem with download.

    Fast-paced, smart, and hard to put down. I can hardly wait for the next entry in the series!

    Excellent thriller. Strong central character. You are kept in the dark about the story line and how it will end. Good first thriller by the author.

    Special Forces type thriller. An operative's entire team is killed, he is the suspect and on the run from everyone while he tries to clear his name and save world at the same time.
