Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor brings readers his darkest and most intriguing thriller yet - a terrifying story of espionage and betrayal - brilliantly paced with superb nonstop action.

Born in the shadows and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist.

When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States.

With the CIA's intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists' network and prevent one of the biggest threats the United States has ever faced.

Simultaneously, a foreign wet work team has been sent to California. Their target: one of Hollywood's most famous filmmakers.

While working on a secret documentary project, movie producer Larry Salomon has unknowingly exposed one of the world's wealthiest and most politically connected powerbrokers - a man with a radical anti-American agenda poised to plunge the nation into deadly, irreversible chaos.

As the plots rocket to their pulse-pounding conclusion and the identities of the perpetrators are laid stunningly bare, Harvath will be left with only one means to save America. Unable to trust anyone, he will be forced to go Full Black.

Intense and frighteningly realistic, Full Black is, hands down, Brad Thor's most riveting thriller to date.

    "Banal"

    The description of "Full Black" sounded so promising. I enjoy a good action thriller. Unfortunately, the book is beneath mediocre. Not even close to good. The story is predictable, the plot unconvincing, the characters thin, and the writing simplistic and bloated. The writer assumes that his readers are too stupid to "connect the dots," resulting in pages of poorly written, unnecessary paragraphs. Where was the editor‽ The narrative of the violence is overly testosterone-driven and repulsive.

    The protagonists have no redeeming virtues, unless one believes in the author's political agenda: the end justifies the means. Where is John le Carré when you need him?

    "I made a mistake!"

    There was one review and it was 5 stars. So I got the book. The first part was "believable" but with 45 minutes to go it became stupid and I stopped with 15 minutes remaining and went to part 2. All I could take was 30 minutes and gave up. Everything became a conspiracy. I figured that within a few minutes tides would be included. If you really believe that everything that goes wrong is based on a conspiracy then this is a book for you.

    "RIGHT WING PROPAGANDA!"

    I can't believe I paid money for this rightwing tripe. I only listened to ten minutes and it was like I'd been locked-up for a year in Gitmo forced to listen to Glenn Beck. What a piece of crap.

    Story
    "Too many off story rants."

    The story is ok, but the gratuitous rants about liberal this and conspiracy that are off-putting. An abridged version of this book, leaving out the oddly disconnected rants about liberals not knowing what the country needs to do to survive are distracting from the story, would have been a better read. The author actually takes two to five minute diversions into these rants that make you forget details of the story.

    "Good story but to much personal political politics"

    I have been and still am a fan but I felt that the author spent too much time and effort trying to preach political ideology to the listener. I have to admit I almost discarded the book because of the immense amount of political lecturing I as a listener received. Not to say I totally disagree with the authors opinions and views. He (the author) has to know that I listen to the books to be entertained not to be indoctrinated and lectured to about his political opinions. I can think for myself.

    "Preachy cr-p"

    What a waste of time. This book is just a pulpit for the author to lecture about his political perspective rather than entertain the reader. I didn't get past the first hour.

    Story
    "Stale, lacking knowledge of the world, Myopic"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Only the most feeble minded. intent on extending stereotypes. Someone only interested in reading there own limited narrative. Poor research, silly motivations, PREDICTABLE.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was perfect his lazy narration only added to the overall dull and dumbness of the book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Full Black?

    not that simple an editor should have sent it back marked "grow up!"

    "If you love an extremist right wing conspiracy..."

    This is a masterpiece of rightwing bunkum. Thank goodness Brad Thor only writes novels and doesn't get to dabble in foreign policy. I love a good thriller, but this is strictly for the John Birch Society summer reading list.

    Story
    "Terrible writing, disjointed story, and bad morals"

    Here's the moral of the story: If you've ever gone to college or sympathized with the plight of non-radical Muslims in America, you are the enemy. If you've ever beaten a suspect to death, you are a patriot and a hero.

    Putting all that aside, its not even a good story. Top heavy to the point where what should have been thrilling end-game action was summed up as "a sweep of law enforcement". Its obvious that the author had to hit a certain number of words and once he did, he simply stopped and singed the loose ends of this poorly cut rope.

    Armand Schultz does a terrible job here. The operatives talk with gruff voices. The ladies and the computer geek have high soft voices. And the SEAL sounds like GWB. Just terrible.

    I kept waiting for something to happen. It never does. But if you get off on revenge fantasies of torturing bad guys and think Sarah Palin is presidential material, you'll probably love this.
