    After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There’s just one problem - no one knows if she can be trusted. But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Brad Thor and/or Armand Schultz?

    I love Scott Harvath as a character, and when the story wasn't making, not so veiled jabs at the current administration, I enjoyed the story.

    I really wish people could just write a story without pushing their political beliefs, especially when the are so black and white.


    Did Act of War inspire you to do anything?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    More Harvath less right wing rhetoric

    In the months before 9/11, former army officer Anthony Taverner is leading a quiet life in the English countryside. But his recruitment for a dangerous mission to Afghanistan by MI6 shatters his fragile peace and plunges him into the kaleidoscopic world of spying. Under the expert guidance of an old-school hero and veteran of the elite British Special Air Service, Taverner prepares to enter Taliban-controlled Afghanistan to destroy a cache of the CIA's precious Stinger missiles....

    Moku says: "Unbearably tedious"
    "Generally a good book but left wanting more"
    Overall

    The story has very detailed descriptions of the characters and lives which makes it interesting. However there seems to be a lot of sub-plots that have either been left for the next book or just left hanging. Its pretty slow going as well, then finishes abruptly. All i can think if is that its setting up a series.
