"A gripping account from a man whose lethal aim took out 33 Taliban fighters on one deployment, a record." --New York Daily News"Gripping.... Irving's book is a focused, fast-paced tale that, like Irving, never loses sense of its mission." --San Diego Union Tribune "This gritty, unapologetic look into the life of a special operations soldier recounts both harrowing and heartfelt tales from the on-the-job experiences of Irving...This account is perhaps not for the faint of heart, but it is sure to be intriguing for those who are made of less squeamish stuff." --Library Journal "Gung-ho account of a sniper's time in Afghanistan....Irving...is adept at discussing the uncompromising minutiae of weapons, tactics and battle staging, the lifeblood of the elite sniper fraternity." --Kirkus Reviews "A breathless, tension-filled account of the day-to-day combat experiences of a sniper in Afghanistan.... Brozek gives Irving's story shape, heart, and context as he helps convey Irving's mixed emotions about his role in combat. But the real craft is in the book's the artful depictions of battle. Readers are brought into the heat of the fight with white-knuckle anxiety, as troops edge their way toward IED-laden targets, chaotic firefights, and suicide bombers." --Publishers Weekly "Nick Irving has a story to tell that every American should hear. This captivating journey is about much more than just getting your hands dirty for Uncle Sam... It's about what it means to be an American in this necessary battle against fundamental terrorism." --Mike Ritland, New York Times bestselling author of Trident K9 Warriors and Navy SEAL Dogs "Nick Irving's story is proof that the Army's 75th Ranger Regiment is carrying their share of the load in the fight against global terrorism. He's also one of the most accomplished snipers in the US military. If you want to see the war through the precision of a sniper's scope then read The Reaper." --Brandon Webb, former Navy SEAL sniper, author of The Red Circle, and editor for SOFREP.com "If Navy SEAL Chris Kyle - America's deadliest sniper ever - was the Killer Man, Army Ranger Nick Reaper Irving was the Killer Man's Son, doing the killing with Dirty Diana till the killer man comes. The Reaper is raw, unforgiving, and unapologetic, placing the reader inside the sniper hide, trigger slacked, and cross hairs steady, capturing the moments before the body count reached thirty-three." --Dalton Fury, former Delta Force Commander and New York Times bestselling author of Full Assault Mode and Kill Bin Laden "I am amazed by the parallels between Nick's life and my own. I am also deeply humbled and appreciative that we still produce men like this. I would be on his team any day. The Reaper is the kind of book that you have to live to write--and it's more exciting than any thriller could be." --Howard Wasdin, Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling author of SEAL Team Six "A great look through the scope of what it's like to be a sniper in battle and home. The Reaper is a hell of a book." --Marine Sniper Sgt. Jack Coughlin, New York Times bestselling author of Shooter

Nicholas also describes a firefight between Taliban combatants while they, the Taliban, were engaged in a Man on Man orgy of sorts. Seems a bit far-fetched that Islamic terrorists, in the midst of a jihad in Afghanistan, would be having gay sex - side by side, only to be caught by a US Army strike force with their pants down.
Nick shares his feelings and exciting details as his job just as Kyle did but for Nick obviously it is presented in the "First Person"
I found it interesting that Nick was not bring his counts of KIA's to this book.
He more so brings the adventures of a dedicated Army Veteran intent in bringing the life of a Sniper to all of us interested in the sacrifices our current Veterans are making.
He also brings out the major difference in the cultures of the Afghanistan people and America.
The difference especially between the males & females of both of our cultures are detailed in a shocking and sinister way.
If only the average American could personally witness the horrors of war I firmly believe we would see our Veterans and their families taken much better care of and not ignored by the VA and our current National Veterans Groups.
