Publisher's Summary

Navy SEAL turned covert operative Scot Harvath is called to action once again in Brad Thor's hottest political thriller yet.

Buried within the black ops budgets of the Department of Defense, a new spy agency has been created. Unfettered by the oversight of self-serving politicians, it reports only to a secret panel of military insiders. Its job is to target Americas enemies - both foreign and domestic - under a charter of three simple words: Find, Fix, and Finish.

Recruited as a field operative, Scot Harvath has just returned from his first assignment abroad when a bombing in Rome kills a group of American college students. The evidence points to a dangerous colleague from Harvath's past and a plan for further attacks on an unimaginable scale.

Harvath is tasked with leveraging his relationship to lure the man out of hiding and kill him on the spot. But what if it is the wrong man?

Simultaneously, a young woman is struck by a taxi in a hit-and-run in Chicago. With only two intoxicated witnesses and over 5,000 cabs in the city, the Chicago Police have given up on their investigation. But when the family's attorney digs deeper, he will uncover a shocking connection to the bombing in Rome and the perpetrator's plans for America.

As the story rockets to its conclusion, the plots intersect in a race to prevent one of the most audacious and unthinkable acts of war in the history of mankind.

Take another thrill ride with Scot Harvath.

    I enjoy reading thrillers: espionage. I am ex Army. I work in the health care industry. I like to practice martial arts. I participate in IDPA matches. Genghis Khan is my favorite person.

    "EASY"

    This was an easy listen. The plot was very straight forward as were the characters. There wasnt anything to technical about the weapons or tactics used in the book. This was a middle of the road effort by the writer. I would recommend his earlier books.

    "Very Bland"

    I have tried several Brad Thor books and just cannot get into them. I finally figured it out on this book. He takes too long to start tying the different characters and parts of the book together. It is as if you are reading 3 or 4 books at once, putting one down and picking the other up. His main character is not very interesting. Thor was billed as "Vince Flynn style writer". Not!

    "One Among Many"

    Maybe I've read too many great political/action novels, which I love, that this one didn't cut it for me. While there was action, I did not feel a connection to any of the characters. I felt myself bored listening much of the time. The best moment was the very end, leaving unanswered questions. However, I don't think I'll read the next book. I also did not find the narrator brought much interest to the book.

    Perhaps I'm spoiled by Vince Flynn.

    "Boy Howdy"

    I like Thor for the most part anyway but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Loved the Athena Team and hope they'll show up again. Also enjoyed the two stories merge into one. And since this isn't a book report I'll just say, great listen.

    Story
    "Just So-So"

    This was a long-winded version of plenty of other muslim terrorist vs. US novels. About midway through the book I put it down and listened to a couple of other books, then came back to it. Certainly not one of those books that you savor until the very end.

    While not a total waste of a credit, there are better ones out there. Keep looking.

    Story
    "Political propoganda disguised as a book"

    What a waste of time.

    That's several hours of my life I will never get back, before I finally gave up.

    First, the positive - the action sequences were entertaining.

    As for the remaining 99% of the book-

    If I had wanted to listen to a propaganda manual inundated with simplistic, inaccurate, defamatory stereotypes, I would have been more than satisfied.

    If you believe that democracy is a socialist plot, the Constitution an inconvenience to be ridiculed, the Marines should be outsourced and replaced by Blackwater mercenaries, you named your first born after Ayn Rand, and you have petitioned the Vatican seeking early sainthood for the Koch Brothers, then this book might entertain you.

    I was hoping to listen to a "thriller", not a political re-education and indoctrination tape.
