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)

Decent story but not all that exciting.
Good question. More action less "I'll protect you honey - let me hold your hand stuff!"
Ehhh - they were all ok.
Probably. It would have to be faster moving than the book or everyone would be sleeping.
Have a nice day!
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Brad Thor has a very solid writing style and that makes for a fast moving and very detailed and fun story
Scot harvath for how brad gave him so much wit and quick thinking makes for a great character
Very good indeed he brings life to the story and you want to listen to it
Scot is coming for you
not as good as the first but still a very good listen and book
Have 300 other books in different accounts.
Exciting and interesting. Book is well researched.
The different ways he makes you think of terrorist attacks.
I enjoy narrarators that read the book and don't add their own twist by adding their own emphasis or slow the reading down.
All of Thor's books are good
I love Scot Harvath, the main character. Brad Thor always manages to come up with a "page-turner".
The biggest surprise is who the "assassin" really is.
I love stuff :-)
Except for the previous book in this series, "The Lions of Lucerne", Brad Thor is among my favorites. Even though his situations sometimes boarder on "too much too soon", his books are always entertaining and worth the time to listen to. He's up there with the best for me.
He did an excellent job.
I enjoyed the book. I would recommend it to anyone looking for exciting situations and pretty real characters.
Yes, The narrator is fantastic and the story was pretty good, albeit a little long and redundant in some parts.
Learning who the real antagonists were in the story.
He is always great. He had a wide range of characters from at least 5 different countries and did very well representing each one. I love his Scott Horvath voice.
Hmmm. Horvath of course. A second would be the killer with the silver eyes, carried over from Lions of Lucerne. Meg was fair, but all of her annoying questions got on my nerves. I hope we leave her in this book and not carry her on. Not that she was the only irritating character, but she had more page time than the other pests, like Morrell and the other CIA bosses.
It was a good follow up to book one, even though i am still pissed this had a release date of 2/13 and I did nt realize I was buying a book that is ten years old. Not cool, audible. This book had A lot of action and way too many, in my opinion, fight scenes, before we got to a finale. I could live without the over explaining and a few of the "almost caught them" moments. Overall, I enjoyed the book.
Besides scott the supporting cast was done well. You like the seal team and other operators. Stories of Bullet Bob coming to a store near you?
After so many books it is a comfort to hear him read.
This is the type of book you put on when cleaning the garage.
Scott needs a stable home life. Maybe a Mrs. Smith type that can kick some trash with him. He is getting older.
