Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Finally, competition for Mitch Rapp"
    Would you listen to Black List again? Why?

    Yes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nicholas.


    Which character – as performed by Armand Schultz – was your favorite?

    The villain. Mr. Schultz really gives personality to this character.


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

    Yes. I couldn't turn it off.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Black List to be better than the print version?

    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.

    "Good listen"
    Where does Black List rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks somewhere in the middle of the pack. Its a good book...just not a great book.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brad Thor? Why or why not?

    Yes. His writing style is fun, quick and exciting. However, his books seem to be a bit predictable.


    Which character – as performed by Armand Schultz – was your favorite?

    Scott Harvath.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.;

    Story
    "Great Listen from a Great Storyteller"
    Would you listen to Black List again? Why?

    Yes. Riveting plot. Not preposterous or overwrought like so many thrillers today. Be prepared to listen to this straight through.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Black List?

    Too many to count. The attack on the Texas ranch was highly memorable.


    Have you listened to any of Armand Schultz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think he did Full Black too. Excellent narrator.


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

    The Athena ladies late in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Thor is always on point"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Black List to be better than the print version?

    Well I don't know because I have not read the print version, but I certainly doubt it.


    What other book might you compare Black List to and why?

    When I think of any Brad Thor book I automatically associate it with anything by Vince Flynn, they are two of the very best in this genre.


    Have you listened to any of Armand Schultz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have and as a matter of fact I often seek Armand Schultz out because I enjoy him so much. To answer the question "Black List" is another brilliant performance.


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

    No

    "Blackbll this black list."

    My last Brad Thor. The hero has become a sadist, not an action hero. He likes torture. Sad. This used to be a good series.

    "Great Read (Listening)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    So far I have listened to or read a majority of Brad Thor's book and have yet to have a bad or even a mediocre experience.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scot Harvath, good hero, believable character. I also like the Troll. It is easy to get on his side as the underdog and sympathize or even empathize with him.


    Have you listened to any of Armand Schultz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Good reader with a great performance voice


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

    No, as I seldom have enough time to listen to a book in one sitting

    "Continuing the battle but at home"

    Typical Scott Harvath but this time his job is within the US. A good story and excellent job by Armand Schultz. Interesting plot involving current NSA capabilities - with a scary "if you think about it too much" use of available computer technology. Scott makes use of some old allies we haven't heard from in quite a while. The movie title probably would be "Who is Watching the Watchers?"
    Readers who like this book would probably enjoy David Suarez's "Daemon" and "Freedom".
