I have not been happy with Brad Thor on his last several books so it is nice to see him back on point. Path of the Assassin might be my favorite book of all time so I love the Horvath series but it was just going sideways. This one is back to being a current headline.
I've petered out on Brad Thor after the Athena affair, tried one more time and found this one better. Though I did have to check a few times to be sure this was not written by Ron Paul.
Cunning, exciting, surprising
Lara, new character very well written
There are definitely parts that make me chuckle. I get his sense of humor.
Brad writes very cognizant and contemporary books. Hidden Order is no exception and may even be a glimpse forward.
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
This buy far one of my favorite Scott Harvath books. This is one of the first books that I have acutely did a little of my own Research on. And after listing to it I became a little bite more smarter. If this is your first Brad Thor book, then it's a good one to start with.
Armand Schultz still one of the best narrators, even if his Boston accent is a little to Kennedy-esque and over the top...still wicked-pissah!
Tell us about yourself!
Love the story. I wanted to know how the economy faired when the president decided to let it stand or fall. This is a conspiracy and if happens in real life we are doomed.
All mysteries all the time, that's what I read. I joined Audible when I started having a long commute. Now I listen everywhere!
I did get a bit confused about who was doing what at times.
Learned some things about the Federal Reserve, leaving me even more disgusted and disillusioned with politicians, but that's nothing new.
Good reader, entertaining plot, I'd give it a solid 7 if this were a 10-pt scale.
Loved the development of Scott. I see his growth and change as a character. The story line was great and the ending was satisfactory.
The books truly make one ponder the possibility. Scary if it turns out to be based on fact, but it would not be surprising given the state of the world today.
This one is less of an international counter-terror yarn and more of a murder mystery thriller. Like "Angels and Demons," it's a race-against-the-clock whodunnit against a supremely powerful and shadowy entity, but with the Federal Reserve in place of the Vatican, and a dash of the covert ops drama that Thor does so very well.
I suspect that my next few books will be about the Federal Reserve. Thor's crash course in the agency's history has spurred some initial Internet reading into the subject, and let me tell you: if you're alarmed by what you hear about the Fed in this novel... you should be.
As always, Armand Schultz delivers a spectacular performance of the book. Even during its most expository moments, the pacing is never lost.
