Number-one New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor delivers his most frightening and pulse-pounding thriller ever!
After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There’s just one problem - no one knows if she can be trusted.
But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion.
With the United States facing an imminent and devastating attack, America's new president must turn to covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath to help carry out two of the most dangerous operations in the country’s history.
Code-named "Gold Dust" and "Blackbird", they are shrouded in absolute secrecy as either of them, if discovered, will constitute an act of war.

AMERICA...Military History, History, Action and the love of good believable thrillers.
Only one more book in the series to go. This was a fictional book that does not seem to be beyond the relhm of possibilities.
I've listened to every Brad Thor book in the Harvath series and while this one was entertaining, I felt the story was weaker than most of the others and didn't really advance the Harvath character at all. Some of the characters weren't as well developed and the scenario was a at times to rosy or unrealistic for the "faction" genre. As usual Arman Schultz's performance was very good. While I wouldn't make this the first Brad Thor book I read (or listened to), if your a fan of the Scot Harvath series then you'll want to make time for it.
I like fact based books. I read,get curious and suddenly I am researching a new line of thinking about politics in other nation states. Thor provides just enough to inform.
This was a good listen, story wasn't boring and kept a good pace of action. I enjoyed listening to it.
If Brad had sold the idea to another author. I thought, upon reading the synopsis that the plot sounded like something I would enjoy. However, the author must have a Cliche' dictionary that he used extensively.Also, another way to make it better would be to have a different reader, there was no rest from this guy who thinks that every word is best read as if it is the most important in the story, exhausting!
I actually enjoyed the plot, sounded and was developed appropriately. I didn't finish the book because I found the writing style amateurish.
As I stated earlier. The performance was too urgent, for lack of a better term. After a while I stopped caring when he tried to amp up the drama.
Again, the concept of the plot was quite well thought out.
I very seldom give negative reviews, so it pains me to do so now. I think a collaboration would have been better, with someone else doing the actual writing and Mister Thor figuring out the plot.
This book is about assassinations and torture, trying to justify them to protect americans. Be forewarned. I am returning it.
