“The best thriller of the year...an exciting and entertaining read.” —The Washington Times
“A top-notch thriller.” —Bill O’Reilly
From #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor—a brilliant thriller as “current as tomorrow’s headlines” (Dan Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author). Terrorism in Europe has spun out of control. The United States has decided on a dramatic response. Now, the CIA needs a very special kind of operative.
Scot Harvath has exactly the skills the CIA is looking for. He’s a former U.S. Navy SEAL with extensive experience in espionage. Working for a private intelligence company, he will provide the CIA, and more important, the President, with absolute deniability.
But deep within the Russian Caucasus, Moscow also has its own special kind of operative. As a child, Sacha Baseyev endured an unimaginable horror. Today, he lives and breathes for only one reason—to kill. And he will kill as many Americans as it takes to accomplish his mission.
When a clandestine American operations team is ambushed near Syria, all signs point toward a dangerous informant in Brussels. But as Harvath searches for the man, he uncovers another actor—a rogue player hell-bent on forcing America’s hand and drawing it into a confrontation deadlier than anyone could have imagined.
As the attacks mount, and terror is brought to the very doorstep of the White House, Harvath finds himself in the race of his life. From Vienna, Brussels, and Berlin, to Malta, Jordan, and Syria—he will push himself beyond the edge in order to confront one of the greatest evils the world has ever known.
Well done4By TonySereJust a good read…period.
Packed.4By ANProctorActually followed this one really well and enjoyed the characters throughout. Felt like I spent a lot of time following Harvath’s story and not some “whatever” character half the time, which made it more enjoyable. Felt like it didn’t need to have so many “bad guys” on the Russian side though. The book spent too much time interrogating people and that got a bit boring going through it with Eichel, Malevsky, Sergun and the general. Too many interrogations! But it ended very well and actually closed out the primary characters nicely. I binged the last 30 chapters in a 2 hour window because it gets really good after chapter 40. Action packed and easy to follow! Great job Thor!
Almost can't finish it1By ThisoldfishI've ready every other book in the series and love them. This one, however, I think is terrible. The plot is boring and predictable, the story drones on and I fall asleep from the monotony of one battle after the next. Loads of characters introduced quickly and it becomes confusing. I have to say this is one of the worst most amateur books I've read and it really surprises me after enjoying the rest of the series. Seems like he was in a hurry to simply crank one out-- this is a weak result and a waste of my money.
Can't get enough5By knockermakerThis is the best Scott Harvath adventure to date. Well written, great plot, lightening fast pace, with satisfying finish. Feel like I just had a great succulent steak dinner with good glass of Cabernet.
Foreign Agent5By Over siteOnce again knocked it out of the park Brad! Hope we have someone like Scott out there we are going to need him.
The Apostle4By Gentle SavageIf you don't know by now, Thor never misses. Period.
Excellent5By Tjh1525I have read all of Mr. Thor's books and they are all an excellent read.
Excellent5By GPMengelReally enjoyed reading this book! Very well written! Kept me on edge and excited to keep reading!
Foreign Agent2By S diggyWhat has happened to Brad Thor's writing? Crazy book, crazy characters, no plot, rambling on, who cares about the ending? Guess Scott Horvath is done....
Wicked5By SpinalcellThe fact that operators and think tanks are required to read at least one of his books should be an indication of his accuracy and skill set. You won't be disappointed. If Jack Ryan got you here let Scot Harvath show you how we stay here!!!
