Description

Space opera blends with military science fiction—and Earth clashes with Mars—in this action-packed series opener from a Tom Clancy game franchise writer

Captain Lincoln Suh died on a Wednesday. And things only got harder from there.

Snatched out of special operations and thrown headfirst into a secretive new unit, Lincoln finds himself as the team leader for the 519th Applied Intelligence Group, better known as the Outriders. And his first day on the job brings a mission with the highest possible stakes.

A dangerously cunning woman who most assuredly should be dead has seemingly returned. And her plans aren’t just devastating, they might be unstoppable.

How do you defeat a hidden enemy when you can’t let them know they’ve been discovered?

You send in the Outriders.


Praise For Outriders

“A few pages into Outriders and I forgot the book was set in a sci-fi world. Jay nails the mindset and the dynamics of a special operations unit. Keenly written with authentic characters, Outriders was one of the best sci-fi books I’ve read in a long time.”
—Kevin Maurer, author of Hunter Killer and No Easy Day

“Spoiler alert: The main character dies on page one. And then things get very interesting. Posey’s Outriders is thrilling, action-packed science fiction that grabs and doesn’t let go!”
—Jason M. Hough, New York Times–bestselling author of The Dire Earth Cycle

Outriders offers up a realistic portrayal of grey world / black ops while doing some nice horizon busting both conceptually and technologically. A highly enjoyable read.”
—August Cole, co-author of Ghost Fleet

“With Outriders, Jay Posey announces himself as belonging in the top rank of military science fiction authors. Effortlessly cool and instantly engaging, Outriders is impossible to put down.”
—Richard Dansky, lead writer on Tom Clancy’s The Division
 
Outriders offers a high-paced blend of near-future space opera and military sf, and in a nutshell it’s good fun.”
