    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.

    i am not even pausing the book to write this.....i have listened to the entire "Harvath" series , and , will finish it....but ,,, really. Hesitated on Armand Schultz, but got into his narration.....I was ruined on this weak effort the moment Scot agreed to go against everything he stands for, and go get the stupid kid, of the stupid b-tch. Unable to recover from THE one premise that sent him on his way......which he would/should never do, i can't recover......i have a strong ability for the ol' "suspension of disbelief" , required for such great reads, in my opinion, as the Jack Reacher, Dirk Pitt, Bob Lee Swagger, Mitch R app books, and now it may be clear that i have run out of riveting reads.....please help , with a suggestion.....thank you...and btw, I've also listened to(and very much enjoyed) the NUMA files, and Oregon as well...Van Dorn detectives, and the Fargo's were also great, I include these because I regret hammering this book, and hope my ref's give you some perspective, as to my comments

    Would you try another book from James Lee Burke and/or Will Patton?

    i will never listen to another book by JLB, as much as i have enjoyed them


    What does Will Patton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    great sense of feeling about characters and setting


    Any additional comments?

    the bs comments,(uncalled for) about Catrina, make me seeth, and i will never buy a book by this author again
