    Something sinister is brewing. A chilling video has already cast its ominous spell over the White House situation room. Now scientists connected to the top-secret Sword of Allah project are dropping dead. Seeking to unravel the enigma, U.S. anti-terrorist agent Scot Harvath reaches England just in time to rescue British paleopathologist Jillian Alcott from al-Qaeda's top assassin. This expert soon confirms Scott's worst fears and triggers an adrenaline-fueled rush for survival.

    John K Stratmann says: "Thrilling"
    "Best suspense I heard in a long time"
    Overall

    One of the best suspense novels I heard/read in a long time. And Guidall is one of the best narrators out there.

    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    Story

    The narrator speaks a bit slow, and it is in some way taking the tempo of the Baldacci books down. But it might be the best way to get the atmosphere of the remote villages he likes. I really like the way you feel you get to know the places and people, but compared to the other action thrillers, Baldacci is slow moving.

    Story starts off interesting, and accelerates all the way, with a cooldown after the major action half an hour before finish.

    I enjoy the Baldacci books, they feel a lot deeper than Brad Thor or Vince Flynn.

    Every politician has a secret. And when the daughter of a politically connected family is kidnapped abroad, America's new president will agree to anything - even a deadly and ill-advised rescue plan - in order to keep his secret hidden.

    mark says: "not even my "suspension of disbelief" can hang"
    "Worst yet in an otherwise good series"
    Overall

    I really loved the other books he wrote, with Blowback probably being the best.

    But this one really sucks. The Secret Service plot is just a side story, and not related to the main story.

    The main story does not carry anything special, and Norseman is just a regular soldier in this one. It does not have the techno-thriller magic like the other ones. There are weak attempts with the lake of broken glass, but it looks like Brad could not find enough material or ideas to really use this tale, or he was lazy.

    OK entertainment, but absolutely not the level of his other books.
