'Overwatch crackles with authenticity.' Matthew Reilly

When Logan West impulsively answers a dead man’s ringing phone, he triggers a global race against the clock. The hunt is on for an Iraqi artifact that is central to a plan to draw the United States into a major conflict with Iran.

Logan, a former Marine officer, is quickly contracted as a ‘consultant’ to assist the FBI as part of a special task force. A deadly game has begun, pitting an international team against trained mercenaries employed by the world’s largest private security contractor . . . whose owner has a personal vendetta 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.

Overwatch is a thriller unlike any you’ve read before: tightly plotted, up-to-the-minute, and impossible to put down.

Praise for Matthew Betley
The Military Times’s Top Ten Books of 2016 Pick

'A former Marine himself, Betley proves himself an able heir to the throne currently held by the likes of Brad Thor and the late, great Vince Flynn. But Betley also incorporates a quest for a historical artifact reminiscent of James Rollins and Steve Berry, resulting in a structurally flawless read, unafraid to tackle difficult issues like PTSD as well. Not to be missed.' TheProvidence Journal

'Matthew Betley has proven he's an accomplished writer. Overwatch is a brilliantly conceived thriller that surges from the first chapter through mounting deception to a powerful conclusion.' Clive Cussler, #1 New York Times bestselling author

'Overwatch is an exceptional read—a thoroughly engrossing thriller that reminds us of battles fought and threats we still face. We might have expected from Matthew Betley the gripping battlefield accounts that could only come from a seasoned warrior. But the humanity of its characters and the relentless drive of its narrative will make readers impatient for Betley’s next book.' Stephen Hayes, The Weekly Standard

'As a former Marine, Betley really knows his stuff. Fans of nonstop, nail-biting action will love this one!' Kyle Mills, #1 New York Times bestselling author
