The story itself was pretty good. However the narrator did not do the story justice and because of this I had a hard time listening to it. I was not as impressed as the other reviewers who rated it a 5 star book. it was a good story but I do not think the writing deserves 5 stars.
I've read all Thor's books in the Scott Horvath series. I've enjoyed them all - including this one. But this one is not as good as the previous books. Storyline and actions just not as dramatic as his other books, in my opinion.
It's getting to the point where if you've read one brad Thor, you've read them all. Change some names and change some locations, but the same old Islamic terrorists are at the heart of everything he writes. His plots are so convoluted that it is hard to follow. His scenarios are so far from reality that even the most hard-core political thriller reader must be questioning how he can get away with these. This one, even more so. Sneaking into Afghanistan and stealing a prisoner the government is holding. Really? And his on-again/off-again relationship with his job or not his job. Sorry. The first few were interesting reads. Now it just gets cumbersome. And let's face it. Armand Schultz is no George Guidall. When you start the series with Guidall and change mid stream, it just feels odd. Like reading the Jack Reacher series without Dick Hill, or David Baldacci without Ron McLarty or Orla Cassidy. Sorry, but I'm done with this series.
Scott H. is a fantastic character. he's no mitch rapp but still pretty good. this book is not the best but still entertaining. George guidell is so much better at reading this type of book.
I love the character of Scot T. Harvath. However this new guys voice acting makes Scot sound like a punk. Please go back to the original narrator.
I really enjoyed this one and have become a fan of Brad's storytelling. The tempo is good, the characters are interesting and the situations are compelling.
Just not as good as the others in the series so far. Story was bland and boring. Should have listened to other reviewers.
