Description

INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“[A]nother instant classic.” —The Real Book Spy
“The undisputed master of blending geopolitics with spycraft…a thriller aficionado’s dream.” —The Providence Journal

The new Cold War is about to go hot.

#1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most intense thriller yet.

Scot Harvath is having his best summer ever. With a cottage on the fjord, a boat, and his beautiful girlfriend Sølvi, he’s got everything he could possibly want. But out of vacation days and long overdue back home, America’s top spy has a decision to make—return, or submit his resignation.

When his deadly past comes calling, though, he’ll be left with no choice at all.

Leaving his favorite Oslo café, Harvath watches as a ghost climbs out of a taxi—a man he killed years ago, halfway around the world. How is he still alive? And what is he doing in Norway?

In a race against time that will take him high above the Arctic Circle, Harvath is tested in ways he has never imagined and pushed to a limit few human beings could ever endure.

If he succeeds, he’ll walk away with everything. If he fails, the United States and its allies will be at the mercy of one of the world’s most dangerous actors.

    Well researched. Reading about Norwegian environment and people was excellent. His knowledge of potential Arctic warfare and Russian and Chinese subterfuge was informative. Liked learning about US icebreakers, the lack of, and potential issues it causes was quite interesting.
  • Another good yarn with an underlying message

    There is something reassuring in reading these admittedly formulaic novels. Yes they blindly Reinforce many of our deep seated beliefs and mores. Yet is it so bad that some of us believe in patriotism, decency and commitment to the greater good? Chuck

    These stories are more relevant than ever as China and Russia seem intent on aggressive power plays. Very well paced and balanced novel. Good characters and storylines that keep the pages turning. Thanks Brad.
  • Decent enough

    Good story all based on a coincidence, which the characters don’t believe in coincidences. But whatever. Also a lot of fluff that had little or nothing to do with the plot. But whatever. And I felt like the author kind of got lazy and just wanted to finish the book. But whatever. Four stars might be a bit of an exaggeration But whatever I still liked it enough to finish it so kudos.
  • Excellent book
