Product Details


“One of the most exciting new thriller talents in years!”
-Vince Flynn

“Gripping and impressively authentic.”
-Frederick Forsyth

“Explosive! A gutsy, gritty thriller told only as one who’s been there and done that could write it. You will long remember this terrifying, timely tale-and its terrific new writer.”
-W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth IV

“Courage and honor in the face of the enemy have not been so brilliantly portrayed since the great novels of the Second World War. I would recommend Thomas Young’s magnificent novel to anybody.”
-Jack Higgins

The Mullah’s Storm tears along with the terror and immediacy of a nightmare. Thomas Young takes us on the trip every soldier dreads: alone, injured, and being chased through enemy territory. I couldn’t put it down.”
-Nathaniel Fick, CEO, Center for a New American Security, and author of One Bullet Away: The Making of a Marine Officer

The Mullah’s Storm is a riveting, gale-force tale, impossible to put down. Thomas Young air-drops the reader into the Hindu Kush, surrounded by razor-sharp ridges and miles of unbroken silence, always blurring the line between hunter or hunted. Combining a sniper’s precision with a poet’s economy of language, Young’s debut makes you grateful to be reading safely indoors, but just a little nervous about who might be watching you.”
-Craig Mullaney, Department of Defense, Principal Director for Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Central Asia, and author of The Unforgiving Minute: A Soldier’s Education

The Mullah’s Storm digs in its hooks from the first chapter and never lets go. There are writers, and there are fighters – readers are lucky that Thomas Young is both.”
-Alex Berenson, Author of The Faithful Spy and The Midnight House

“Thomas W. Young is an airman, and a natural-born novelist. If you want to know and to feel what it’s like to serve in Afghanistan, this novel is for you. If you are a fan of Patrick O’Brian or C. S. Forester, this novel is for you.”
-John Casey, National Book Award-winning author of Spartina

“Thomas Young has written an exciting, creative, and heart-pounding story set in the complex war zone of Afghanistan that he knows well. The polished style and surprising plot turns rivet you to each page. This is a great read for anyone who loves a great survival story superbly told.”
-General Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (Ret.) Former Commander in Chief, U.S. Central Command

“I found The Mullah’s Storm captivating. Like Tom Clancy, Young has an eye for detail about military equipment, operations, and thinking that will ring true with any veteran-something that is not often achieved by other authors-and his portrayal of Afghanistan is not only accurate but most relevant to current events and worth the read alone. Most of all, the story’s suspense holds the reader in its grip. The extreme chase from hope to despair and back makes it impossible to put down.”
-General Chuck Horner, USAF (Ret.)Former Commander, U.S. Central Command Air Forces

“At last, an Air Force action hero! A C-130 navigator struggles to survive in winter in the Hindu Kush. The plot and the action move with the speed and power of a B-1 bomber.”
-Bing West, Author of No True Glory and The Strongest Tribe

“Thomas W. Young writes with the authority of a man who has lived to tell the tale, and he tells it at breakneck pace. He has written a page-turner that might’ve been torn from today’s headlines. The prose crackles with grit and gunfire. The Mullah’s Storm is an engrossing, enlightening, and extremely entertaining debut.”
-Doug Stanton, Author of Horse Soldiers and In Harm’s Way

The Mullah’s Storm is the most realistic and compelling novel that I have ever read. It is suspenseful and electrifying from beginning to end, and as close to reality as it could possibly be. The knowledge, experience, and insights of the author and his ability in writing this book is amazing. It is a ‘must read’ – and once you start, you will not want to put it down. The Mullah’s Storm will surely be a best seller.”

-General Carl Stiner, U.S. Army (Ret.) Former Commander in Chief, U.S. Special Operations Command
