From number one New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor comes his most explosive thriller yet. Packed with action, intrigue, and sublime plotting, Black List is the ultimate tale of deception in a world where "even in death" secrets can no longer be kept.
Somewhere, deep inside the United States government, is a deadly list. Members of Congress never get to see it and only the president has the final say over it. Once your name is on the list, it doesn't come off - until you're dead.
Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath's name to the list.
Somehow, Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has framed him for treason and why they want him out of the way.
Somewhere, someone, somehow can put all the pieces together. The only question is: Will Harvath get to that person before the United States comes under the most withering domestic terrorist attack ever conceived?

"[Brad Thor] is arguably the best thriller writer of our time." (Suspense Magazine)
"Anyone who thinks the only thing to fear is fear itself should meet Brad Thor." (Newsweek)
"Thor has mastered thriller storytelling with fast pacing and plots that are relevant to American readers." (The Miami Herald)
Seemed like it could really happen. Nothing about the story was that far fetch.
Nicholas. The character comes to life with ease thanks to Armand Schultz performance. I hope Armand Schultz does all of Brad Thor's books moving forward; he is the best.
This book was well done. The character progression was on point. This was the first book by Brad Thor I read, but I didn't feel like I needed the entire backstory from the previous books to keep up. However, I really like the series and have decided to read all of them now. Also, (SPOILER) the idea of a digital Pearl Harbor is something that is completely plausible in today's world. Brad Thor really knows how to tell a great story!
No I wouldn't- I'm a huge fan of Brad Thor in general ESPECIALLY Scot Harvath Series. This book however ( with a great performance) was a let down, and will be the first Brad Thor Book I have ever returned!!! Full Black left you on a cliff-hanger with the expectation that this one would start with explosive force and follow through as usual. But instead started with disappointment, and an abnormal amount of who's who. I'm 3 hours in and I'm still hearing lengthy backstory on bad guys that'll be dead in two chapters. Also this book was obviously meant to be a stand alone book outside of the series, because most of this book has been re-capping previous books in the series.
Definitely I still enjoy his style and delivery.
Maybe , because the re-capping and flashbacks would only be moments, rather than the majority.
Armand brings to life Brad Thor 's writing bringing today's plausible story lines into the listeners world of reality. Can't wait to hear the next one in the series
Really liked this book a lot.
Our government is Kind of scary and real all at the same time. A reality check in this world we live in now even though it's a novel.
Really like this story and how it feels like we are in this exact spot in time.
Great job, great suspense, great characters! Keep them coming!
As someone who deals with Cyber Security I'm amazed how much research he did and got the information correct! Cudos!
As usual great plot with a lot of twists. I really like the discussions at the end of book with Brad and Armand. This is the second one I've heard but need to go back to the really early books to find any I missed.
One of the earlier books had a discussion at the citing what was real and what was made up. He should do that all the time.
Heard Brad on WMAL yesterday and now don't know who to vote for in the election. Scary either way but I understood his point especially in context of this book. Will start the next book this week
You are involved in the first chapter. Mr. Schultz is a master narrator and makes each character come alive. The story is breathtaking and I hated to see it end. On the other hand it had to be solved and concluded!
