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.

    "Slow start but gets better"

    I struggled with this audio book at first it seemed to be going nowhere and the narration was extremely slow. I increased playback to 1.5x speed, and that made a huge difference, around the same time the storyline improved too.

    once the story got going I enjoyed it.

    "Fun"

    It's a Scot Horvath book. It's going to be entertaining and escapist. It's the perfect accompaniment to an extended car ride.

    "audible sucks"

    The narrator was very boring, I feel asleep many times, hard to stay focused, very monotone, if I could read along it would have made it better, glad it was only a free trial

    "Solid Entry"

    Another solid entry in the works of Thor. The new Athena Group looks to be a nice new character set for future story lines...

    Story
    "Great Action Scenes But Overall I Was Confused"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Since his death I have been looking for an author whose work measures up to the Master Vince Flynn. Brad Thor is everywhere many friends and reviews have said his work is fantastic. I felt like I was always a few steps behind the characters and there were so many characters to meet.

    The plot was complex and I didn't realize this was part of a 13 book series until after I got about 1/2 way through.

    Other authors have the ability to write a series in which you can pick up any book in a series and read it and it stands alone. For me, this was not the case for -stand alone book- for the above reasons. However, I think if I start at the beginning the series it may get me hooked (including this book.)

    I'm giving Thor another go-this was an error on my part, starting a book that is in the middle of the series-but a great book should stand alone even as part of a series. I was overwhelmed the feeling I should have been familiar with many of the characters. On top of that there were several intense situations, Foreign Influence was confusing.

    Buy or not buy? Credit or no? I wouldn't buy it or use a credit. I must have picked it up for a steal, BOGO, 3 books 2 credit or I would not have bought out of order. I have already picked up the 1st book in the series. Here's hoping.......

    NOTE: Strong language & violence

    "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.

    "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.
