About Stan R. Mitchell

Stan R. Mitchell writes action-packed thrillers, which readers have compared to the works of Vince Flynn, Stephen Hunter, and Tom Clancy.

Mitchell earned a journalism degree from the University of Tennessee and spent 10+ years doing relentless, deadline-required writing in the newspaper business.

Prior to college and his days in the newspaper world learning how government works, Mitchell was a former USMC Sergeant, who earned a Combat Action Ribbon in '97 while serving in the infantry with Alpha Co., 1st Battalion, 8th Marines. (Operation Silver Wake.)

Besides this mission into harm's way, his platoon also served as the Covering Force for the elite Marine Force Recon Unit that deployed with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, Special Operations Capable (MEUSOC). In addition to working with Marine Force Recon perfecting Direct Action missions, his platoon had the privilege to operate with the Navy Seals, training at the art of fast roping and ship takedowns.

Mitchell lives in Oak Ridge, Tenn., with his wife Danah, and in his free time, he enjoys writing action thrillers, practicing martial arts, and studying Eastern philosophy.

Review by: Phillip McCollum on Aug. 12, 2012 :
This is Stan R. Mitchell's sophomore effort and you can tell that he's grown both as a storyteller and in his technical craft.

Nick Woods is one of America's greatest snipers. He'd been sold out in the past and was being sold out again, except this time, the man behind the shadowy operation has gone too far. Nick finds himself teaming up with an unlikely ally, a newspaper reporter looking to earn his Pulitzer prize by revealing the truth behind the government conspiracy.

The action is non-stop and you'll find yourself at the end of the book before you realize it. I sense that we haven't seen that last of Nick Woods. There's still so much about his past that's begging to be explored and a future that remains wide open.
