Now Nash and a quickly assembled team of expert operators have come to the earthquake-ravaged country of Kazbekistan in the guise of relief workers.

Part of her SEAL Team 16 series, this is the first book in Tom Paoletti's "Troubleshooters" saga. Starring Decker, Nash and Tess - it takes place in K-stan (aka "The Pit") and has them looking for an elusive laptop belonging to a terrorist who died in a recent earthquake. Nice love triangle between the aforementioned characters and throws in another female American to the mix once they arrive. Not a keeper but I did enjoy the action. Could have used a little more romance and a little less "save the heroine from the bad guys".
