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.

    Story
    "Horrendous, simplistic and unbearable"

    Out of 300+ books this is one of the very worst. The bogieman is ridiculous and the premiss childish in it's simplicity and ignorance. The action is separated by long political rants so biased ignorant I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I ended the pain ($19) after less than half way, I WANT MY $19 back.

    Story
    "Scary premise. Enjoyable ride."
    Where does Full Black rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    It's solidly in the top 20%.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, but in a slightly less intense way. I sure wanted to make sure the head villain got his comeuppance.

    But there were plenty of suspenseful moments as you wonder whether the bad guys would be foiled.


    What does Armand Schultz bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    He makes me see and feel the characters better. As he read the part of the Troll, I always pictured the great character actor Michael Dunn (RIP).


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

    What if they could make us beg to be defeated?


    Any additional comments?

    If you are new to Brad Thor, you can start here but it's better to start with the early Harvath stories and listen to them all. You won't want to put the earphones down.

    "Enjoyable"
    Where does Full Black rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10 percent


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the plot. I think the scenario is not implausable, not necessarily the terrorism connection but the agenda behind it.


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

    I like most of them. No favourites.


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

    not really


    Any additional comments?

    I think the story was good until the last couple of chapters. It just went from a detailed plot straight to wrap-up. Seems like 4 or 5 chapters are missing.

    "Great Action, Great Attention to Detail"
    What did you love best about Full Black?

    I loved the non-stop action of this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how Brad insists on paying attention to deatil in his novels. He does a great Job of including other types of characters in Full Black as well as highly trained operatives and terrorists. Not all of the characters in the book are CIA, NSA, Seals, Delta, Rangers, Spetsnas, MI5 or other elite forces. In addition, not all of the bad guys in the novel are muslims from the middle east. Although the book contains many of these types, he does a great job of integrating people from all walks of life into the story. The the tangled web disception and terror in this novel is supurb. Armand Schultz also does a great job.

    "A thrilling listen."

    This was my introduction to Brad Thor, Scot Harvath and Armand. I didn't know what I was in for and had moderate expectations. Now, 5 stories later, I still think this is a fantastic book and the series leading up to it is superb. Strong characters and compelling tension brilliantly read by Armand. Keep up the great work!

    "Too much preaching"

    Enjoyed the story. Barely tolerated the political commentary. I hope the next book sticks to the story.

    I've been listening to audiobooks for more than 20 years. After hundreds and hundreds of audiobooks I'm a little picky.

    "Decent way to kill some time with a good book."

    I wish that I could tell you this was the best book ever and gush about how wonderful it was. I can't. It was good, pretty darn good.. but not great. The narration was excellent and the pace was pretty quick but even though I agree 110% with the Author's obvious worldview and agree with the political and social diatribes that he squeezes into the story, even I felt preached at. I think he could have let the story give the moral and political lessons instead of monologues from the main characters. Pretty good, but not worth another 12 hours of my life.

    Story
    "Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad.."

    I really can't emphasize enough how bad this novel is. I had to stop listening after just a few chapters (which seem to be randomly split for no apparent reason) even though I was really trying to find some redeeming reason to continue on. The plot is laughable (out loud laughable), with every bad spy novel cliche included. It’s all, good guys this, and bad guys that. The narration is terrible, replete with bad accents and a kind of 50's style commercial read quality. And then, after all that, the author clearly reveals that he has bought, hook, line and sinker, the right wing Dick Cheney screed that torture is justified and the only way that “real men” can extract information (which has been handily disproved by the recent book by Ali Soufan, The Black Banners. BTW) Don’t get me wrong, I love a good simplistic patriotic thriller that gets you riled up about the greatness of our team, but this was so ridiculous and heavy handed that I started thinking that apparently anyone with a laptop and a vague plot can write a book. Not a good book, just a book.

    "Couldn't finish"

    The action sections were good, but the commentary took over much of the book. Thought it might be
    doable, but after listening to less than half of the book, we couldn't handle anymore of that. The narration was done well though.

    "Full Black"

    Too much right wing political speechifying. It detracted from the story, which wasn't all that bad of a global conspiracy novel.
