Publisher's Summary

Death Waits in the Dark: Six Guns Don't Miss is a thrilling story about a Night Stalker at war. This is the story of an attack helicopter pilot who flew with the renowned 160th Special Operations Regiment (Airborne), and the incredible friendships Greg Coker and his fellow compatriots forged in the heat of combat. 

The Night Stalkers, officially known as the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, are the best helicopter pilots and crews in the world. These are the crews who fly America’s top special operations units to combat. They can reach any target, plus or minus 30 seconds, as they take pride in saying. The Battle of Mogadishu, the Osama bin Laden mission, and the Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi raid are just some of their exploits that have made it through to the public. When you hear about special operations troops doing something incredible on the ground, it's almost always because 160th SOAR pilots like Gregory "Gravy" Coker flew them in, provided air support, and whisked them back out - all under cover of darkness. 

Alexander Hollings writes: "The 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, commonly called the Night Stalkers, are widely considered to be among the best military aviators on the planet. Coker's new book, Death Waits in the Dark: Six Guns Don't Miss promises to give us a glimpse into this elite and secretive world, and came with some help from Sandboxx's own resident Delta Force legend, George E. Hand, IV."

All of my proceeds will be donated to multiple non-profits that support veterans, first responders, and their families.

Painful!

If it weren’t for the recording sounding like he was in a bathroom stall, the mispronunciations and poor command of the English language, this could’ve been a really good book! But instead it makes you want to gouge your ears out with sharp pencils. It’s really sad because he’s got good stories to tell but I had to turn it off and stop by chapter 4.

This was so boring

The droning of the narator just took away from the story. The constant referance asspakistan just was not necessary for the story. It is obivious he has great disdain for the afkans and pakistanie. The treatment of the SEAL and the great joy the author seems to take in belittling any one that is not a night stalker just makes this impossible to listen too. I have listened to many audio books. Some I have listened to many times. Many from Vietnam and some from the gulf war but I just can not complete this one. I am prior military Air Force, Navy, Army and I always respected the other services for the job that they do. This guy seems to hate everyone in the military that is not a night stalker. Could not listen to this anymore.

Oh what could have been

I read the description of this book and I was very excited to read it! I really wanted to like it, but I just could not. It had the feeling like you were sitting down with a good ol’ boy who started telling stories with all sorts of inside jokes that, if you were not part of the original group, were not that funny. Then, as the story continued, he would just keep telling them and they became even less funny.

In the introduction to the book, the author says that the book is “not for the easily offended”, then proceeds to go out of the way to be as offensive as possible. Also, there were a few technical things that just did not make sense. The biggest for me was his description of his flight home after his first tour in Afghanistan. Where they flew him and his team the long way around the world: Oman - Germany - Diego Garcia - Thailand - Guam - Travis AFB - Ft Campbell. That kind of flight just doesn’t seem plausible. It was details like that made me question other things that the author put into his book. I will say that I am very glad the author did not leave in all the stuff that was redacted after the military censor had looked over it.

If you were to read this book as a drinking game you would be very well hydrated. When the author sounds off with a unit motto, description of the weapons on the aircraft, talks about the Rangers or Delta in a way that makes you think that he is in love with them, says something nasty about higher headquarters take one drink. When he talks trash about the USAF, has a random aside that is supposed to be funny, or talks about how he has to go in and set someone straight on how things need to be done take two drinks. If he says something nice about part of the military that is not Spec ops or randomly starts to go into poetry take three drinks.

Narration terribly underwhelming for such a polished group

I very much respect the legendary unit, and love the stories but they were narrated very poorly. Sad that the point man made it seem like a 4th grade story. It dragged the book down.

Ouch this hurts!

As a former Warrant Officer and an Army Aviator I really looked forward to this book. But the exaggeration is set to 11. The audio is poor. Th author/narrator keeps referring to himself in the third person. You would think he fought the war by himself all the while wrapping himself self righteous Christian glory. I imagine the stories from this time are amazing. I just couldn’t take this book at all. Made it to chapter 4.

This is a great story.

I listened to this story of a veteran who dedicated his life to the service of the United States, God, and his brothers in arms, and enjoyed the book from start to finish. Having the guts to tell his story, revealing his struggles and failings along with his glories, reveals a lot about his character.
Don’t hesitate to give this one a try. You’ll miss having insight into the camaraderie of soldiers in combat and their battles back at home.

Gravy and Chik deliver a remarkable story

As a loyal enthusiast of George E. “Chik” Hand IV’s writing, this book has been amazing, both to read and listen to the Audiobook. Greg’s stories touched my heart and soul. Listening to Greg as the narrator, reading his own story written by Geo “Chik” in the style that I love so much was awe-inspiring. Magnificent reading, Gravy! That Texas Twang made all the difference. I am a civilian, and I ask other civilians to read or listen to this book. Teach our children that our military men and women sacrifice so much so that we can live free. And, if you have the means, please donate to the Veteran organizations that Greg mentions. Greg found his mission after military service in helping his brothers and their families. Thank you, Greg Coker and George Hand. You are both my heroes! From MicMac

Six guns don’t miss, that’s a fact!

Well done Gravy!! I laughed, I cried, I reflected, but most of all I felt the brotherhood. Your candid story of service, sacrifice, faith, and perseverance is one of the best I’ve read. It reminded me as it should all of us that we aren’t alone in our struggles. Thank you! NSDQ! SGDM!

Full of American homy Bullshit .. couldn't handle this narrative and narrator at all, purchase absolutely wasted.. Narrator totally destroyed what was probably a great story
