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)
"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)
Want to make it more realistic an better replace Scott Harvac with Steven Seagal I mean that's how bad ass this guy it's.....
No surprises he always wins no matter what he's up against, all the girls want an trust him. Thinks his jokes ares funny an always I mean always better then anyone else at everything government lets him save the world by himself no questions ask.... Stupid stupid book!
Unfortunately I'll never be able to get that time back out of my life what a waste!
I'm quickly becoming a big Brad Thor fan his work is of the best series of thrillers I have ever experienced. I listen to his books on audible while driving on road trips and as I said the miles just pass by.
There is nothing better than a series of books with a main character you can identify with and a group of supporting characters that fit well and add to the storyline because we either despise them or love them.
As a fan of black ops books I want a series...a LONG series if possible, because I don't want to let go of a kick*** operative after a single adventure. Brad Thor provides us with Scott Harvath and he is that guy.
Armand Schultz has been great to this point and, not to knock him in any way, I am very much looking forward to the story telling Holy Grail...George Guidall.
Awesome work Mr. Thor! I'll be starting the next book in the series now.
Compelling story keeps me going, but Harvath's constant, juvenile bickering with the CIA just comes across as obnoxious and smug. Scott is always a smartass, but it goes way over the top in this book. Ok Scott, you hate Morell from CIA, we get it. Now, grow up and hunt the terrorists.
I've never been tempted to stop listening to a Brad Thor book before this one.
I know this is fiction but the whole premise seemed implausible and I found scott the hero a little irratating. I read this after code of conduct which was a great book and I know realize perhaps the character was much matured in that more recent book

If you like thrillers this is a must read book series. Packed full of high intensity and sarcastic humor. It's everything an avid book listener loves to experience!
I believe its ranking is one the top in all that I have read.
So far all of Brads books have kept me interested and when completed wanting to read the next in the series
Loved all his female voices the performed, but Scott is by far my favorite
No it is just right now
