    The president of the United States vanishes from the White House. A top-secret prototype stealth fighter is destroyed during a test flight. Witnesses on the ground say that it was shot down by a craft that immediately vanished at impossible speeds. All over the world, reports of UFOs are increasing at an alarming rate. And in a remote fossil dig in China dinosaur hunters have found something that is definitely not of this earth.

    ...this is the best one yet. The first one hooked me big time; one of the best books I've listened to. This one is great too. I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the next one! Anybody have a line on when that will be?

    Former disgraced Delta Force commander Kolt "Racer" Raynor has earned his way back into The Unit after redeeming himself during an explosive operation at a black site in Pakistan. But he is about to face his deadliest challenge yet. The most wanted man in the world, American al Qaeda commander Daoud al Amriki, and his handpicked team of terrorist operatives, have acquired stores of Russian-built, shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAM's) from ex-Libyan spies in Cairo.

    Story

    I was devastated with the loss of Vince Flynn. He was a patriot and his Mitch Rapp series was just fantastic. So many times I found myself sitting in the driveway listening for just a few more minutes before turning off my ipod. However, with Vince, so went Mitch.

    I like the Scot Harvath books and especially the Dewey Andreas series (these rock) but Dalton Fury has really nailed it with his Delta Force books.

    Again I find myself sitting in my driveway listening for a few more minutes before going into the house. I've finished both books in the series in record time. I just couldn't stop listening. In fact, I'll probably listen again, just as I did with each of the Mitch Rapp books.

    If you're a Mitch Rapp fan and looking for a comparable character and story, this is it. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    The narration is fantastic as well. He does a great job capturing the essence of every single character, helping the characters and the story come alive.

    Action-packed from the start, Hidden Order demonstrates yet again why Brad Thor is the "master of thrillers". A string of high-profile kidnappings has Washington, D.C., in a frenzy. When the victims begin turning up dead, frenzy turns to panic. And when the ransom demand is finally made public, panic will turn to terror. In Brad Thor's riveting new thriller, the stakes have never been higher, nor the lines between good and evil so hard to discern.

    Story
    What would have made Hidden Order better?

    this was more a hardy boys mystery combined with a history class. I appreciated the lesson on the federal reserve and american history. however, there virtually no suspense and no action. I expect more from a harvath novel. ive read them all...this is the only one i would not recommend. I think I miss mitch rapp already.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    maybe go back and re-read some of the rapp books.


    Did Armand Schultz do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    armand does good overall and does some of the characters very well. however, only george guidall (sp?) can capture the essence of harvath. same goes for mitch rapp.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    pure dissatisfaction.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope mr. thor takes scot harvath back to his roots in his next book. and hopefully, George guidall will tell us the story.

    Somewhere, deep inside the United States government, is a deadly list. Members of Congress never get to see it and only the president has the final say over it. Once your name is on the list, it doesn't come off - until you're dead. Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath's name to the list. Somehow, Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has framed him and why they want him out of the way.

    Would you listen to Black List again? Why?

    Yes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nicholas.


    Which character – as performed by Armand Schultz – was your favorite?

    The villain. Mr. Schultz really gives personality to this character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I couldn't turn it off.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge Mitch Rapp fan. I started listening to Brad Thor in between Mitch Rapp releases to pass the time between books. This is the first Scot Harvath book that rivals the Mitch Rapp series. I think Mr. Thor has finally caught up with Vince Flynn as far as action, depth, and character development.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Great story and great characters. The main character was a smart *** but likable.


    What other book might you compare The Lion to and why?

    I am a huge fan of Vince Flynn and his character Mitch Rapp. Although Flynn's books are more in-depth, this book was great.


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

    The narrator does an incredible job bringing the hero and villian to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh. The main character is a smart a**.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to more books by both this author and narrator.
