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.

    "Armand reads..."

    ...but George acts the books. Wanted to give the book a five-star rating, but without George it just wasn't the same.

    P.S. Why aren't there unabridged versions of all Thor's books on Audible?

    I enjoy Thor's books especially when he brings some of the more interesting characters back, such as the troll and his dogs. I recommend this read

    "Fighting terrorists around the world"

    This is another story involving Scott Horvath, ex navy seal, goverhment operative who is charged with stopping terrorists that carrying out increasingly larger attacks. He travels the world as the terrorists spread their terror through Europe, Scandanavia and fianlly Chicago. For me, it was the best Brad Thor book so far. The pace is fast and urgesnt. I thought the use of an all female operative team was also a nice touch to this kind of story. If you like political thrillers, this is a must...you will not be dissappointed.

    "Top five"
    Would you listen to Foreign Influence again? Why?

    Yes, I probably will, because there are a lot of twists and turns in the plot. I want to miss nothing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Riley (?sp - one of the shortcomings of audiobooks) -- because Scot seems attracted to her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Red Light district in Amsterdam (before the bomb, that is).


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Civilization Under Attack:

    "Great escape"

    Brad Thor keeps getting better. A story that grabs you and then pulls you in. Enjoyed the beginning, middle and the end. Kept you on the edge of your seat the whole book.

    "Excellent sequel"

    I loved the first book in this series and did not think the sequel could live up to it! I was wrong. This book held my attention from beginning to end. I listened to the entire book almost non-stop. It had everything-great narration, excellent plot, excitement, intelligence, suspense-everything I have come to expect from Brad Thor. And I was not disappointed. Hurray! Can't wait for the next book. Thanks Brad for a thrilling ride!

    "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!
