A lot of people in this country don't want to admit that America is changing and not all change is good. Brad offers a look at what challenges the USA is facing everyday. This is a good read!!!!
I enjoyed the overall story of Full Black but once again Thor overdeveloped. His early on character developement was too deep on some smaller characters so that by the time you get to the meat of the story I was somewhat confused as to who was who. The story itself was very entertaining although somewhat unbelieveable. Harvath should have been working for the CIA, not a private security firm such as Blackwater. A private security firm would not have the cooperation and ability to pull off some of the things occurring in this book. I am trying hard to become a Thor fan but each of his books leave me a little flat. The narration was superb.
Excellent ability to alter his voice for different characters.
It wouldn't make it through the week end without some serious editing regarding the abilities of the private security firm.

An absolute thriller that speaks to today's problems. It makes you think about our present day situation and what we may be facing.
I've either read or listened to practically all Brad's books. While this book was good, I have to say that I did not care for the ending. Seems like the end rolls out in less than two chapters after you have gone through 30 to get there. Know there is a follow up based on the ending, but have to say the ending let me down.
Like the title says, this was a fantastic introduction to Brad Thor for me, i plan on reading/listening to more of his books. The reader does a great job.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
I have "read" a number of Brad Thor novels and have to admit that after enjoying other novelists who prepare far more intriguing plots I will have to pass on future reads. In a word, predictability of what unfolds in the plot development makes me want to not finish the story.
Like most of Brad Thor's book I liked this one very much. This continuation of his last book brought it all together. And Keep Harvath alive Brad..Armand's work is great. He really has the feel for the characters.
Yes. I was particularly drawn in by the the narration which brought the characters to life. I not only would enjoy listening to Full Black again, I will be buying more Brad Thor books now. The twist at the end is always an expected and welcomed tease for his next book. I love his style - this is my second Brad Thor book (Foreign Influence). Now, I am hooked on the audio books because I travel a lot and I can listen anywhere I am and also just before going to bed. Sometimes I find that I go to sleep with the earpiece in my ear. :)
Yes, The intriguing characters combined with the vividness of the detail and constant action were engaging and made every chapter of the book exciting. I've traveled to some of the places mentioned in the book which made some of the descriptions Brad provided bring back some memories and made the book come even more to life for me.
I have to admit that there are many scenes I could say were my favorite. The entire scene in the initial chapters at Larry Soloman's house where Brad describes in meticulous detail the scene and the danger that was all around made me feel like I was in the house feeling the clear and present danger all around. Then, when Ralston encountered the Russian hit men and how Brad painted the picture of the action and danger in the rooms, hallways, and every turn were excellent in my opinion. But, if I had to choose one, I'd say all the scenes with Riley were great because you could sense there was something more beneath the surface. There was more going on between them that was not yet fully explained. There was some definite intrigue there and as a reader...and the last scene was just what the doctor ordered. Now, I want more. I'll be pre-ordering the next book in the series!

Keep 'em comin' Brad!!!
