A powerful, dark, and morally provocative debut novel about a U.S.
Special Forces unit operating in the Middle East, written by a
former soldier No Easy Day meets Redeployment It s hot and getting
hotter this summer in Afghanipakiraqistan the preferred name for
the ambiguous stretch of the world where the U.S. Special Forces
operate with little outside attention. Team Leader Dutch Shaw is
missing his late grandmother. She was the last link he had to
civilian life, to any kind of world of innocence. But there s no
time to mourn. After two helicopters in a sister squadron are shot
down, Shaw and his team know that they re going to be spun up and
sent back in, deep into insurgent territory, where a mysterious new
organization called Al Ayeelaa has been attracting high-value
targets from across the region. As Shaw and his men fight their way
closer to the source, mission by mission, they begin to realize
that their way may have been prepared for them in advance, and not
by a welcoming host. The Knifeis a debut novel of intense
authenticity by a former soldier in a United States Special
Operations Command direct-action team. As scenes of horseshoes and
horseplay cut to dim Ambien-soaked trips in helicopters and beyond,
Ritchell s story takes us deep beneath the testosterone-laced
patter into the lonelier, more ambivalent world of military life in
the Middle East. The result is a fast-paced journey into darkness;
a quintessential novel of the American wars of the twenty-first
