Publisher's Summary

National bestselling author of The Lions of Lucerne

Brad Thor and his indomitable hero Scot Harvath are back, raising the stakes and taking on one of the world's deadliest terrorist organizations bent on stoking a global holy war of apocalyptic proportions.

After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America. Harvath and his CIA-led team must reach Nidal before it's too late. One problem remains - they have no idea what the man looks like.

Only one person can positively identify Harvath's quarry - Meg Cassidy, a beautiful hijacking survivor. Together, Scot and Meg must untangle a maddening web of global intrigue stretching across four continents. From Macau, Jerusalem, and Chicago, to Libya, Capri, and Rome, Harvath and Cassidy find themselves locked in a desperate race against time to sort the pieces of a deadly puzzle that will test not only their physical and mental limits, but also the growing bond they feel for each other.

What the Critics Say

"...[A] blood-soaked sequel to the presidential-kidnapping debut that so arrested critics....Thor leaves little to the imagination when it comes to the cut and thrust of terrorist-busting; the action is relentless and gory, the pacing sublime, as is the authenticity of everything from weaponry to locales." (Ottawa Citizen)

"If Thor's second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair....the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed." (Publishers Weekly)

"If Thor's second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair....the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed." (Dan Brown, New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code)

    "Exciting but not outstanding"

    I like Brad Thor. I've read to most of the books in this series. Some parts are real page turners and then things slow down and then pick up again. If you are into mysteries and thrillers, I would say spend a credit on this one. The narration is excellent!

    "Brilliant. a must on a long distance drive."
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    It was done so well I almost felt like I was there. Like an observer.
    I listened while driving from Yellowknife. NWT to Edmonton Alberta. Wow time flew by.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Meg for sure scared shaking and old memories but she got past it grabed the gun and took care of the terrorists one by one.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Just listen or read this book

    "Another edge of your seat adventure"

    Not only is the story a page turner and an edge of the seat adventure, but the narrator made it all the more better. A narrator can make or break a story and this one made it. Good story, good narration.

    "well...not as bad as the first book in the series"

    if you're hoping for another series like Mitch Rapp you will be disappointed. it is an improvement from the first but Harvath is just not a believable or interesting character and some of the dialogue is just embarrassing

    Story
    "Sometimes a reach, but the ring was grasped anyway"
    What made the experience of listening to Path of the Assassin the most enjoyable?

    the suspense... the knowing he will succeed... yet when... Mr. Thor makes you pick sides, cheer for winners, boo the loosers... masterfully done.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Path of the Assassin?

    Harvath's beyond the rules approach during the hijacking situation where he met Meg makes him a HERO... and you have to love that


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The oasis description


    If you could rename Path of the Assassin, what would you call it?

    You are not paranoid if... they are really out to get you!!!


    Any additional comments?

    "Slow Start, Strong Finish"

    the frst few chapters were slow and a little scattered. Just as I was beginning to question my purchase, the story line came together and I was pulled in for the long haul.

    Story
    "Ehh. Not that great."

    This author is pretty popular, and I like some other books by other authors of the same genre, but these stories just aren't that great. Not the worst books out there, but nothing worth getting excited about. Everything is pretty obvious, no subtlety, even though there are various attempts at twists and surprises, they are pretty obvious.

    The main character is not very intelligent, but he has a lot of weird crazy lucky things that always seem to go his way. He also condescends to most everyone he talks to in the book.

    I tried listening to two books thinking maybe just the first one was a flop, but there is no change and way too many similarities between the books. In the end this will be the last Brad Thor book I buy.

    "Good book. "

    The series is getting better and better. Book 1 was a little rough. I can't wait to start book 3.
