See No Evil by Robert Bear {Retired CIA agent}

Good Book, but I actually I put that down right in the middle, for reasons that should be left out of this conversation

Well 'Marine Sniper' and 'Silent Warrior' are basically the same book, only with different details, but they are my favorite. They inspired me, and they rock.
