Absolutely and I have. At a time when we need more than ever to feel proud to be Americans and find a way to fight fire with fire, Brad Thors' Scott Harvath does exactly that. For those who feel like the good of the few outweighs the good of the many, maybe this is not the book for you. But if you feel like Americas worth fighting for at any cost, than read on brother, your in for a treat.
Scott as usual, smart and bad ass, he's the story of many of our real life American heroes fighting for an America that doesn't live in fear or fights against those in our own government trying to keep America safe.
Armand and George Guidell both do an outstanding job at bringing Scott to life, and making you feel like your right there.
This character will give Mitch Rapp a run for his money. It is not over the top (at least to me) and the narration is great. If you like shoot em up bad guys die books that don't require a lot of deep thinking this is a good one.
Yet another great Scott Harvath book. I liked the new police officer character who was introduced to move the domestic part of the story along, which surprised me as I usually don't like new minor characters taking too much of the storyline, but it worked in this book. Getting some of the story from the terrorist perspective was also well done. I'd like to see some of these characters play into future stories.
The Troll's and Scott's love interest storylines are furthered during this book. A new multi-national likely nefarious organization is introduced (if they were in previous books, I don't recall) at the beginning of this story. I suspect they will play into future plotlines.
Other than that, it's what you expect. Scott busts some heads, terrorists try to do bad things, Scott tries to stop them, people die, and the world is just a little bit safer at the end of the book than it was in the beginning.
Brad Thor keeps getting better and better. This story is action packed and thrilling. There are no boring lulls or down time. It is a fascinating look into terrorist cells and the lengths they will go to in order to complete their mission. The ending just makes me look forward to the next Brad Thor book. Armand Schultz did a fabulous job narrating. I never felt as though I was "being read to."
I started with "Full Black" and have been hooked on this series since. The words of Brad Thor and Armand's performance are meant for each other.
Scott Horvath chases terrorists with the subcontext of a Chicago policeman following a hit and run driver. Great read.
I live in Michigan and have been a member of auible since it's onset. Hobbies are photography and writing...I am in the process of formatting my first novel for kindle and I hope everyone will read it. I LOVE AUDIBLE and listen to at least 3 unabridged books a month. !
Brad Thor continues to keep me on the edge of my seat!.........The only suggestion I would have..get Scott Brick to read. I am use to Brick reading some of his novels, and he is far superior to this reader.
As listener....I was unable to discern between the male and female in this readers voice........
PS.....The troll is really an intersting character and I hope he continues to show up in future novels.
Reader was good, storyline interesting, but book could have been much better. An example -When author described the main character as having been a professional athlete - makes one wonder why he was not described as having played three years of triple A ball for the Yankees. Many of the charactors could have come to life, but they did not.
This was enjoyable but not a page turner. There's too much going on at once and the narrartor didn't make it any easier to follow. It was worth the credit but I'd rather spend it on Stephen Coonts if I want to read a spy thriller.
While I thoroughly loved The Apostle, I thought that Foreign Influence took Scott Harvath a step too far. The connections and points of contact that Thor creates for Harvath and the others in the plot are just a little beyond belief. The plot was well-crafted and the story flowed very well. The reader was great and made the plot and characters easy to follow. Thor is a great writer and I look forward to his next Harvath adventure. Go Navy!
