The Devil's Hand
By Jack Carr
NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
“Take my word for it, James Reece is one rowdy motherf***er. Get ready!”—Chris Pratt, star of The Terminal List, coming to Amazon Prime
The fourth thriller in the “so powerful, so pulse-pounding, so well-written” (Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author) Terminal List series follows former Navy SEAL James Reece as he is entrusted with a top-secret CIA mission of retribution twenty years in the making.
It’s been twenty years since 9/11. Two decades since the United States was attacked on home soil and embarked on twenty years of war. The enemy has been patient, learning, and adapting. And the enemy is ready to strike again.
A new president offers hope to a country weary of conflict. He’s a young, popular, self-made visionary…but he’s also a man with a secret.
Halfway across the globe a regional superpower struggles with sanctions imposed by the Great Satan and her European allies, a country whose ancient religion spawned a group of ruthless assassins. Faced with internal dissent and extrajudicial targeted killings by the United States and Israel, the Supreme Leader puts a plan in motion to defeat the most powerful nation on earth.
Meanwhile, a young PhD student has gained access to a bioweapon thought to be confined to a classified military laboratory known only to a select number of officials. A second-generation agent, he has been assigned a mission that will bring his adopted homeland to its knees.
With Jack Carr’s signature “absolutely intense” (Chuck Norris) writing and “gripping authenticity” (The Real Book Spy), The Devil’s Hand is a riveting and timely thriller that will leave you gasping for breath.
Good plotting but …4By Dr_EllisWish Carr would leave out the right wing politics.

Great book5By SDCALLoved it - can’t wait for #5!!
Another hit4By TigersJC86Jack Carr is truly one of the best new writers in the genre. He’s obviously knowledgeable both in serving in the armed services and being a continuous student. His characters are relatable and real. My only qualm with the book is the subject matter (a weaponized virus) was difficult to read in this time of a pandemic. I’m sure at any other time this would’ve been 5 stars.
Devil’s hand5By codety manGood book
Another excellent and enjoyable read in the Terminal List series4By Matt742I really enjoyed this latest offering by Carr! He’s able to expertly blend a fun, fast-paced thriller with contemporary insights. He may be out of government service but his research with people still close enough to the action is evident, adding credibility without needlessly dropping in terms or acronyms just because. The one criticism I have with this edition is that his infusion of personal politics into Reece’s character is so blatant as to become distracting.
Foul language3By tweese16Great story. Too much foul language. A great story can be told without four language.
👍🏻5By Red!1Worth ever penny
3 👍s up!5By NippleheadednumbskullAs with the previous books in the series, I planned on reading a couple chapters but ended up staying up all night and reading the entire book. My only complaint is that you can’t write a book a week!
