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)

    Story
    "An Action Thriller"

    This is the 2nd book in the “Scot Harvath” series and was added to Audible during Feb 2013. A fast paced and action intensive book. Kaboom!

    I think part of the appeal of Brad Thor’s books about Scot Harvath is the similarity with James Bond, “007”. Scot Harvath, central character, is a handsome government agent who definitely has a license to kill. His stories take place in exotic locations and generally include a beautiful woman as well as a malevolent and amoral baddie. While James Bond duels cold war agents, Scot Harvath foes are terrorists.

    By coincidence, I listened to this book during the week of the 2013 Boston Marathon. While that act of terrorism will most likely turn out to be the work of two delusional brothers, the event matches Brad Thor’s thesis that a small minority of mid-eastern extremists hate the US and will not hesitate to kill innocent citizens to prove this point.

    By the way, Scot Harvath does not believe in coincidences.

    "Just So-So"

    For some reason, this book was really difficult for me to get into. Lots of action but I think the theme is getting long in the tooth and this is just another one added to the pile.

    Each one has their own interpretation of good listening, so to be fair to the author and narrator, take a chance and expand your library. I did and really enjoyed Path of the Assassin.

    Story
    "Well, not my favorite Brad Thor.... a bit slow"
    What did you like best about Path of the Assassin? What did you like least?

    Decent story but not all that exciting.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Good question. More action less "I'll protect you honey - let me hold your hand stuff!"


    Which character – as performed by Armand Schultz – was your favorite?

    Ehhh - they were all ok.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably. It would have to be faster moving than the book or everyone would be sleeping.


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Thor is at the top of excite always."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Exciting and interesting. Book is well researched.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The different ways he makes you think of terrorist attacks.


    What does Armand Schultz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoy narrarators that read the book and don't add their own twist by adding their own emphasis or slow the reading down.


    Any additional comments?

    All of Thor's books are good
