Former SEAL Chris Paladin leaves SEAL Team Six to become a pastor, but CIA spook Hannah Andrade pulls him back into Special Operations Group, the ultra-secret unit that SEAL Team Six operators and others served under to eliminate bin Laden. Chris and Hannah are joined by Delta Force’s Sonny Cohen to stop a new terrorist threat from launching a deadly cyber-terror against the United States.


PRAISE FOR STEVE'S BOOKS:

“As action packed as a Tom Clancy thriller...harrowing...adrenaline-laced.”
—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“Pulses with the grit of a Jerry Bruckheimer production...”
—Stephen Lowman, The Washington Post

Praise for Trident’s First Gleaming
Another great novel reflecting our Spec Ops forces’ global capabilities. Written by a proven and insightful master storyteller.” 
—Howard E. Wasdin, SEAL Team Six Sniper and NYT Bestselling Author of SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper

“Stephen Templin’s Trident’s First Gleaming is a muscular thrill ride that’s rich with detail and full of heart and energy. A stand out in the ranks of modern action-adventure thrillers, Trident’s First Gleaming is a blast.” 
—Mark Greaney, #1 NYT Bestselling Coauthor of Command Authority, by Tom Clancy with Mark Greaney.

“There are few authors who have as deep an understanding of the shadowy world of global special operations as Stephen Templin. And there are fewer still who can synthesize that knowledge into a thrilling narrative so deftly. In Trident’s First Gleaming, Stephen weaves a tale that reflects today’s complicated reality, where motives and allegiances are rarely black and white and there are no easy answers. Even more impressively, he manages to do this while still bringing plenty of visceral gunfights and car chases.” 
—Chris Martin, Bestselling Author of Beyond Neptune Spear and Shaping the World from the Shadows
