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)

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
I'm so very dissatisfied with this book and so far the series. I could openly see the ending and all the "pitfalls & twists" were so amateur that I felt like I was reading about a brand new county cop, rather than a retired seal and highly trained secret service agent. I am going to get ONE more of the series if that one sucks as badly as the first 3 I'm DONE. You will get no more of my money or credits.
I enjoyed the book but there were a couple of stretches. That however, is true of plenty of authors. I still enjoyed the book but the thing that caught my attention was Armand Schultz. He has a wonderful range. I was so caught up in the story until I realized how authentic he sounded. Never lost the story line but enjoyed it more once I realized what I was missing.
Brad Thor is consistent in his writing...very good but not great stories
As much as I enjoy Brad Thor's books I strongly suggest that readers download Brad's series before enjoying Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series. As most of you know Vince died last year from cancer so there will be no additions to his library.
The reason I suggest Thor's first is that as good a character as Scott Harvath is he is no comparison to Mitch Rapp in abilities. Rapp would kick Harvath's $ss with little effort!
Either way both series are winners!
An old tech geek with a love of reading, but with limited time. I love just about any genre'. A good book is a good book.
I love the Scot Harvath He is America's less refined James Bond without the gadgets.
Unfortunately I was a bit bored with the ending. There was no snap to it as it just ended.
Yes, Mr. Schultz has become a favorite narrator of mine, and he does many of Thor's novels. I found that in this book Mr. Schultz was not as on target in the beginning of the book, but once the characters started to flow it was wonderful again.
Meg Cassidy of course. Beautiful, rich, successful, and the woman prefers pizza to caviar.
I personally found this sophomore novel to be a bit flat, and it did not hold much intrigue for me. That is not to say that I did not enjoy it, but after reading the last in the Harvath series and the first I expected more. The book seemed to be a bit short in length and content.
I would still purchase the book again, but one could skip it on the way to the 3rd book in the Harvath series without losing anything at all.
If you are looking for a book only based on proper grammar, this book may be for you.
If you are looking for a book written by a lazy author or one without skill, this book may also be for you.
If you are looking for a book with a cheap and unimaginative story, this book is for you.
This is an eye-roller of a book. Never again a book by this author, not even for inane entertainment.
Probobaly not. There are better suspense/espionage novels out there.
I haven't but its the character and his corny jokes I cant imagine some of the conversations that they have. Also I get that he is the best at his job but in this book its more overt in how he expresses his superiority rather than covert actions.
All were performed pretty well.
Yes ... write this review. Having listened to many other espionage novels, something is missing. Something about the main character that rubs me the wrong way. Plus the story doesnt evolve like so many others that I have listened to.
A teenage girl that likes obvious plot lines and love stories.
The obvious rush into a love story.
Scott Harvath's over the top tough guy routine is exhausting. He looks insecure, not tough.
Narrator did fine but his intonation made Harvath seem even more like an insecure AH.
Not really, sorry.
I'm off these books as of now.
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!
I cannot get enough of Brad Thor's Scott Harvath. The book, as all his others keep my my attention much like V. Flynn books have. Scott is almost the man that is Mitch Rapp was... which is no small feat. You gotta read from book one forward....you will not be disappointed.
