Use of Force
By Brad Thor
From the #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor comes “his very best” (The Washington Times) thriller, following covert operative Scot Harvath as he is called upon to stop an ISIS-led plot to destroy the Vatican.
As a storm rages across the Mediterranean Sea, a terrifying distress call is made to the Italian Coast Guard. Days later, a body washes ashore. Identified as a high value but missing terrorism suspect, his name sends panic through the Central Intelligence Agency.
Where was he headed? What was he planning? And could he be connected to the “spectacular attack” they have been fearing all summer? In a race against time, the CIA taps an unorthodox source to get answers: Navy SEAL turned covert counterterrorism operative, Scot Harvath. Hired on a black contract, Harvath provides the deniability the United States needs, while he breaks every rule along the way.
Teeming with fascinating characters and electrifying intrigue, Brad Thor does it again and proves why he is known around-the-world as a master of thrillers.
Use of Force2By TheBeowulfBrad Thor book is the worst ever, and by analogy, he is the worst auther ever - this is perhaps the most boring worthless book I’ve ever tried to read. Using this book as a indication of Thor’s writing, I’ll never buy another of his book; what a fraud
Couldn’t wait for it to be over1By r2d2rv6Boring book. The author lost interest at the end and wanted it to be over as quickly as I did. Thor is off my list along with Patterson
Would Read Again4By ANProctorStarted uniquely and kept me intrigued the entire way through. Never any dull moments. Secondary storyline though was absolutely unnecessary in every aspect. Had nothing to do with primary plot and was pointless. Could’ve saved time writing that and added more to the ending. As an author I don’t think you should squeeze the entire ending of the story in 15 pages when it took 300+ pages to set it up. Axe the secondary plot and add to the ending. Overall a great story and ended pretty well, just would’ve liked for it to be more in depth than it was. I won’t given it a perfect 5 stars, due to lack of understanding of the point of the second plot, but the idea and storyline of plot A was well put together. It was also nice to see Harvath’s humor in this one a bit more. I like that side of him and hope to see more of it in the future! Great Job Thor!
Great fast paced read but a disappointing ending4By plasmabradAs always, this Brad Thor book was spot on. As a person who knows much of the terrorism narrative is manufactured by our govt the book was a great read. Disappointed in the abrupt ending but would still recommend.
Use of Force5By champion shooterWonderful read. Enjoyed it immensely.
Use of force5By Maj. VAnother great novel. This author is the best on military knowledge and describing how a person handles the stress of that type of life.

Use of Force5By Jackson B tunesBrad Thor has written, as always, a thrilling novel which brings forth the realistic dark world of ISIS and the entire terrorist organization. His research and knowledge along with his strict attention to detail are unmatched. His characters are operators that the tactical world can truly identify with. Solid, straight up writing from a true professional! High speed, low drag!
Solid, fast-paced story4By Long-time Yahoo userThe story was solid, but a lot of the dialogue was clunky and one-dimensional. Much like vintage Tom Clancy, the best writing is the detail and action and not the human interaction.
Use of force5By Papa John 2As always an on the edge book, toward the end couldn’t put it down. One word for your books awesome
