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 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
Can a civilian, like Ms. Cassidy, undergo a short period of training and be sent to highly dangerous missions? On the plane, she was in survival mode.
........of the Lions of Lucerne. Story seemed elementary, not as well developed, characters not as interesting. The research in his first book and the knowledge that he has of his subject matter is what caught my interest,,,,,I really want to learn something as I am being entertained and I admired his vast knowledge.
I am about to start "State of the Union" hoping that that will cement our relationship because I am eager to latch on to this genre and ride it with Brad and Scott.
Scott Horvath is a character you can come to love! No nonsense, patriotic, former seal, who can get it done! Second book in a series.
