Book Description

Navy Seal, Logan Alexander, is trying to put his life back together following a career-ending injury in Afghanistan, when he learns that his younger brother, Cooper, has been killed in an ambush while on patrol with his Ranger unit in Iraq. As Alexander delves into the circumstances leading to Cooper’s death, he learns of the role that the secret arm of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Qods Force, plays in exporting terror. Alexander vows to avenge his brother’s death. With the financial backing of a Kuwaiti billionaire, and a group of like-minded Special Forces operatives, Alexander conceives a plan that takes his team to the Sonora Desert, Europe, and the Middle East, where he comes face-to-face with the man responsible for Cooper’s death.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 22 Jun. 2014
By gudasnu
Format:Kindle Edition
The Cooper of the title is an US Army Ranger killed by an IED while on patrol in Iraq.
When his Ex Navy Seal brother Logan who is just getting his life back on track following a serious leg wound, has a chance meeting with a Kuwaiti billionaire with his own personal agenda who agrees to provide all the financial backing he could want, Logan decides to put together a mercenary force to destroy a secret Iranian terrorist training camp, which they believe provided the expertise and training for the bombers.
The author is a veteran CIA operations officer which obviously lends a great deal of authenticity to the story.
This is an enjoyable book that maintained my interest throughout, though I would not say it is gripping and unputdownable read.
I like the way we see the story from both sides, and that the Iranians have lives and family too. The in depth descriptive detail with regards to kit and weapons reminds me somewhat of Frederick Forsyth.
A slight complaint on my part would be that out of 250 pages the actual on site action when our heroes land in Iraq takes up only 11 pages, and appears somewhat rushed and contrived.

Please note I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed storyline 16 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
COOPER'S REVENGE is the introductory storyline in T.L. Williams series focusing on former Navy SEAL Logan Alexander and his foray into civilian life where he begins to uncover the truth behind his brother's death. Logan has been relieved of his position with the Navy SEALs due to a horrendous injury that the Navy believes has left him incapable to return to active duty. Venturing forth with his own company of former Special Forces Ops and SEALs, Logan, with the aid of a Kuwaiti billionaire, forms a team that goes undercover to remove, reveal and destroy an Iranian munitions factory that is responsible for the manufacturing of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Device) and ultimately the death of Logan's brother Cooper Alexander.

The reader is introduced to Logan's group of ten former military soldiers and personnel who will become part of the team willing to risk everything to put an end to the people behind the IEDs. There is also a small romance developing between Logan and a former Iranian interpreter for the American military.

T.L. Williams is a former CIA operations officer and his military knowledge is without question. The storyline is awash in military jargon and scenarios: rife with historical situations and detailed analysis about the Middle East War and its' affect on the American psyche and nationalism; but it is also a storyline that, at times, got lost in the vast amount of facts, technical terminology and trivia as it concerns the operations in the Middle East. Williams also introduces the history and religious belief system of the Muslim Fundamentalists and how it relates to war, death and the ultimate revenge. At times, some of the information was overwhelming and I thought unnecessary to the actual storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cooper s Revenge 25 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent. I couldn't put it down. Admittedly I thought the details of the action were a little downplayed and the hero and heroine` s end result were a little predictable. A great story thoroughly enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two for one = a great book at a low price 26 Jun. 2013
By David Welch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd be the first to admit that price should not be a consideration in writing a book review. And Cooper's revenge is a great book entirely on its own merit. It is a fascinating story with a few unexpected twists and turns. It involves our Middle East conflict which makes it topical and even more interesting. It is written by a former CIA operative who clearly knows a lot about the territory covered in the book. It discloses information, admittedly in a novel so the facts are not definite but there is enough publicly known knowledge to suggest it is more truth than fiction. In short a compelling read that I would highly recommend in any event.
Aside from the political relevance it is a remarkably well written and entertaining story. I read it over the course of two days only because I had a lot of other things to do during that time. Otherwise it would have been read cover to cover in just one sitting. Once you start it is hard to leave the story other than perhaps for a quick snack or something to drink. I really enjoyed the main character, Logan Alexander, and not just because we share a name (My middle name is Logan). He is a true tough as nails American hero. I suspect we will meet Logan again in future adventures and I'm looking forward to it.
But in truth I found the chief villian in the story even more fascinating. Col. Ghabel was clearly a bad guy and twice in the story exhibited the kind of brutal viciousness we would expect from a bad guy. Yet on other instances, namely in his relationship with his wife, his concern and caring when her father died, and in his sympathetic approach to dealing with problems the wife of a soldier who had died under his command was having with authorities he demonstrated a very human and caring side. So like most people he was in fact very complex and a combination of bad and good. I'd love to discuss this character with the author!
And guess what? I will get a chance to do just that since I will interview Terry Williams on my blog radio show, "Books and Politics," on July 15th. Be sure and listen in at www.blogtalkradio.com/angelsandwarriors. The show starts promptly at 7 p.m. California time. I'd suggest buying and reading the book before the show so you can call in and ask Terry specific questions about the book, about Iran, and about the Middle East.
But back to the title of this review: The fact that Cooper's Revenge is available for download on Amazon for just 99 cents seems too good not to mention. I believe it would be a great bargain at $3.99 or $4.99 so anyone reading this would be insane not to snap it up for just 99 cents.
Bottom line: Great book, great value, buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mitch Rapp, you can relax - Scott Alexander is taking over 30 May 2013
By David Hearne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Author T. L. Williams' novel opens with a series of horrible events that would physically and emotionally cripple most men, but the protagonist, Logan Alexander is not most guys. He accepts his fate, starts a new life and after he discovers terrorists killed someone very close to him, struggles with how to accept that reality. The former seal realizes he cannot rest until he revenges this murder. His new quest is to find those responsible and eliminate them. He also realizes that this must be a covert action and in a sense, he becomes a lethal international vigilante or gun for hire who swiftly, lethally and with style assassinates those responsible. His targets for revenge are members of the Iranian Qods, a powerful and cunning adversary.

Logan's covert mission financed by a Kuwaiti Prince whose family also suffered from the Iranian terrorists takes the reader through the perils and dark world Logan must traverse to accomplish his revenge. Then something unthinkable happens just before the novel's end that changes everything.

"Cooper's Revenge" is a fictional story that entertains, but also educates the reader to many of the Middle East issues. The author's knowledge of real covert missions against terrorists keeps the story realistic and the reader in the thick of the action. Williams obviously used his CIA knowledge of weaponry and ballistics to add his "signature" style to the book. Williams does a great job of developing his characters, building the story, setting the stage for the next thing that will happen and then throwing in the unexpected. You will enjoy every minute of this read and look forward to the next mission of Logan Alexander.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and timely story 18 Jun. 2013
By Donald Camp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Williams has written a gripping thriller that draws from today's headlines. The author clearly knows Iran and Afghanistan well, and makes the characters from Iran, in particular, real human beings beyond the stereotypes. The American characters are well-drawn as well. I particularly enjoyed the insights into US Special Forces' operations.

The story is exciting and made me want to get to the next chapter. It's not a book you can put down and come back to a week later.

Can we expect a sequel?

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Believe The Reviews!! 5 Mar. 2014
By S. Lange - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you haven't figured it out already often reviews are written by friends and family of the author which I believe is the case here.

Many of the reviews suggest that the book is a "Thriller" but that is no where near what this book is. Thrillers have twist and turns and attempt to keep you trying to figure out what is going to happen next. This book had none of that. There was only one instance in the book that I said "I did not see that coming".

Another reviewer suggested that the main character in the book is similar to "Mitch Rapp" from the Vince Flynn series and nothing could be further from the truth. Mitch Rapp is a assassin that tracks and kills terrorists around the globe. Logan Alexander (the main character) never kills one person in this book.

The bottom line is the author of the book appears very knowledgeable about the middle east and their culture. I think he would do better with non fiction because this book was a real snoozer.

Cooper's Revenge is an excellent book that grabbed and held my attention from the first chapter. The pages went quickly as I was drawn in by the characters and the story line. The topics are current and the tale is well told. I look forward to more books by T.L. Williams.
