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.

"...[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)

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!
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.
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.
Just listen or read this book
This book did not have the suspense level as L.O.L. The plot was fairly predictable. The narrator Armand Schultz was excellent!
Great writing by Thor, as usual. Nice narration, as well. Prefer this on Audible - on to the next work!
I have been a lifelong fan of thrillers from Ludlum to Clancy. I decided to try Brad Thor and while I'm not prepared to put him in the class of those gentlemen I was nonetheless very pleased with this offering. also pleased with the work of Mr. Schultz. Good story, nice pace and reasonable detail.
Long commutes need something to remove the boredom! Love history, mysteries/thrillers, scifi and bios, but read a little bit of everything.
This is the second book in the Scott Harvath series and follows immediately on the tail of The Lions of Lucerne. This book has a myriad of twists and turns to keep the reader hooked and fills in a number of blanks which were left in the first book, ending with a twist that was hinted at but left opaque until the end. Armand Schultz continues offering a great performance. If you like the first book, then keep reading...
If you enjoyed the first book in this series this will be no different. This is not a cookie cutter thriller.
