I enjoyed the tale and the suspense. It was solid, I like the take of the story line...it was believable,so much so that I must admit, the bits of the tale I was hoping was based on fact, I was disappointed to learn they were not true. I like SH's strength of character, his loyalty to his country and the fact that he finally settled down...sort of.
The stake outs, the fact that I never knew what to expect from the antagonist, I must admit, up to the end, I was not sure how I wanted him to end, but it was a satisfactory end. The fact that you never knew what was going to happen next, right to the end. So many twists and turns.
Solid reader. His characters' voices are different at times. I know when Gary is speaking, vs the President, vs Scot. There are times when he pauses, and you need it, to catch your breath from what recently happened.
I am about to buy the next one, I can only hope it is as good. So far, so good.
This is my first novel but this author, but I do have a jacket designed by him. The characters were well developed and real. I found the story very compelling.
Workaholic who makes time for great books.
Brad Thor has not written a book I didn't like yet. Great story, great plot, and character development.
George does many different authors in this genre including Daniel Silva. I enjoy them enormously, and have a hard time when he doesn't read the next book in a series I am used to hearing him in.
Absolutely. I usually listen in the car or early in the morning, but I wanted to listen to this book straight through. I hate being a grown and having to work!!!!!
The story was really slow for my taste and kind of boring. i was only able to finish because i was listening while doing errands around the house
The story was entertaining enough.
I was intrigued by the historical aspects of the story but ultimately felt let down a bit.
I have gone through all the Scot Harvath series in order to this point. This one I felt was a much weaker plot and story. I felt like it was going to lead somewhere else and it didn't. Not a lot of action or really any plot twists. Kept getting the thought of the movie National Treasure but with Scot Harvath.
Not a bad listen by any means but not up to par with the others to this point.
Retired military with assignments to Saudi Arabia; Germany; Italy and Turkey. Duties include: Operations; Intelligence; Inspector General
Enjoyed how they reminded us that were battling Muslim Extremist since Thomas Jefferson era and how it tied into today's Marine Corp
The struggle were dealing with today and it wasn't started on 9/11/01 but with muslim terrorist at the beginning of America and how our current Government is making the same mistakes with dealing with the problem today as they did in the 1800s
Several of the characters sounded like the same person in this book. However, Scot Harvath is the reason I continue to purchase the series, both on audio and hardback
No, lot of history in this one and I kept repeating chapters to help educate myself on history I forgot/ignored during my early days in school
Although they tie in to past books where they can, people should really start with from the first of the series and move forward. I started with Hidden Order and got hooked by wanting to read the back story of the character
I am a voice over artist with work in tv, film, radio and commercials all over the world.
Of all the books up to this point in the series, they have tied up the loose ends and provided closure on the book. Good endings, problems solved, resolutions. This book, has a terrible ending. It really ties up the sub-plots and characters, but it leaves the main plot of the book wide open. Very disappointing.
Love the take on the Muslim faith and the possibility of a lost revelation.
I love all the characters. It has some great writing and all the characters have good depth and back-story. You believe in them. The ending is what was bad.
