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)
Yes, I've been a Scott Harvath fan for a long time.
Predictable. No surprises.
Vanilla, mundane, average.
Scott Harvath would make a great movie character, played by someone like Matt Damon. I'm not sure that "Black List" would make the best story.
I've read all the previous Scott Harvath books, this is not Brad Thor's best effort.
So far Black List ranks up at the top of the list of audiobooks I've listened to so far. Armand Schultz does a tremendous job of changing his voice for each character that by the end of the book you know them so well.
Most memorable moment is going back to the old "form" of espionage.....the "old man" Charlton getting into the action, goes back to his roots and is able to communicate with others through not-so-modern techniques.
Compares to all the other Harvath novels I have listened to so far.
What do you do when all the things you know come crashing around you....can't turn to the government for help, cause they're after you too....who do you turn to? The Old Man
have not read print but this great because i dont have time too read
Any Vince Flynn book.
Too numerous to say just one.
Action packed and straight from the Headlines!
The villain. Mr. Schultz really gives personality to this character.
Yes. I couldn't turn it off.
I'm a huge Mitch Rapp fan. I started listening to Brad Thor in between Mitch Rapp releases to pass the time between books. This is the first Scot Harvath book that rivals the Mitch Rapp series. I think Mr. Thor has finally caught up with Vince Flynn as far as action, depth, and character development.
First time I have ever listened to a book. The narrator was good.
Yes. Up until a certain point.
Yeah Armand is the real deal, he makes the characters come to life.
I like any scene with the Scot & The Troll.
The scene in Texas when Scot was on the sniper rifle.
Neither, it was just a great book all together.
It ranks somewhere in the middle of the pack. Its a good book...just not a great book.
Yes. His writing style is fun, quick and exciting. However, his books seem to be a bit predictable.
Not in one sitting (I would not want to listen to a book in one sitting). However, I did look forward to listening to it again each time I had to pause it.
I thought Armand Schultz did a fine job of narrating this novel. Some people seem to not like his narration. But I think his cadence and voice characterization was excellent.;
Yes. Riveting plot. Not preposterous or overwrought like so many thrillers today. Be prepared to listen to this straight through.
Too many to count. The attack on the Texas ranch was highly memorable.
I think he did Full Black too. Excellent narrator.
The Athena ladies late in the book.
I heard Brad Thor give a speech about this book. He is making a political point about the loss of privacy in society today. His thesis is that there is such a massive quantity of data and information about each of us, our emailing and browsing habits, cameras everywhere recording everything, that if the government ever turned tyrannical instead of democratic, we could become a police state overnight. In his speech he says many people say their lives are boring and uninteresting and they have nothing to hide. Thor thinks that is dangerous naivete and an illusion. All very thought-provoking.
