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.
Brad Thor has made a habit of writing books that keep you not only interested, but "in the thick" of things. Scot Harvath is a hero & an everyday man trying to have a life that matters.
My only criticism is that it has been too long since he wrote another one! This is an excellent series!
Armand is always fantastic.
I like Brad Thor and the Scot Harvath series. This one has all the elements of a good Harvath novel but Thor has gotten much too preachy by inserting his political views and making political statements where he can. Just tell me a story -- don't try to convert me.
The dialogs are not only cheesy and impossible to imagine in real life conversation but they are plain simple. The language is unsophisticated and redundant, and forces the characters into dialog just to prove a point.
I just couldn't get interested in the story.
This is a good book to listen to while working in the yard.
The story was a little corny but entertaining. The power of the Fed but in a James Bond sort of theme.
Mr. Schultz is an outstanding reader. He brought every character to life. I was particular impressed with the contrast he was able to deliver. From "sexy woman" to "tough guy" to "nerd" all his voices were clearly distinguishable.
For listeners who are entertained by conspiracy stories based on powerful organizations, this is a book for you. Entertaining and well read and occasionally thought provoking.
The story might actually be good, but the irritating nasal twang and repetitive speech patterns of the narrator only left me thinking how much better it would be in the hands of someone like George Guidall.
George Guidall !!!
All of them, because of the narration.
Audiobook. There is a great deal of historical information, and big picture finance data regarding the Federal Reserve, all which is educational. But, I'm disappointed; Hidden Order is a boring story. Having read several Brad Thor thrillers, I was anticipating action and there was little. A savvy Boston female cop teams with Scot Harvath, coyly dancing through innuendo as they scour the history of Boston, and murders continue to pile. Way too much explaining of history and motivation for my taste.
I heard a rumor, not long ago, that Brad Thor would ghost write some of the late Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series. Hope not. I knew Vince Flynn, he was a friend of mine (Kidding, not really). But, Scot Harvath is no Mitch Rapp. Scot may kick the first base pad when he’s pissed, but Mitch will pull it out of the ground and make you eat it.
Hidden Order is not up to the quality of book that Brad Thor is capable of producing, in my humble opinion. The narration is fine.
