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
    "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

    "Scot Harvath rocks!"
    What made the experience of listening to Path of the Assassin the most enjoyable?

    I love Scot Harvath, the main character. Brad Thor always manages to come up with a "page-turner".


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Path of the Assassin?

    The biggest surprise is who the "assassin" really is.

    Story
    "Brad Thor at his best..."
    Where does Path of the Assassin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Path of the Assassin?

    None, really


    What about Armand Schultz’s performance did you like?

    He did an excellent job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    None special


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book. I would recommend it to anyone looking for exciting situations and pretty real characters.

    Story
    "Horvath on fire"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, The narrator is fantastic and the story was pretty good, albeit a little long and redundant in some parts.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Path of the Assassin?

    Learning who the real antagonists were in the story.


    What about Armand Schultz’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Who was the most memorable character of Path of the Assassin and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Same Scott - alomst different story."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Path of the Assassin to be better than the print version?

    na


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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?


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

    After so many books it is a comfort to hear him read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is the type of book you put on when cleaning the garage.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott needs a stable home life. Maybe a Mrs. Smith type that can kick some trash with him. He is getting older.
