#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.

Not sure. It depends on whether they like in-depth, terrorist, clandestine operation-type stories.
I liked all the characters. I liked the surprise when they hit the cell where the car was parked with the book on the dash.
Voices were clearly defined in most cases. Easy to tell who was talking.
Made me nervous that such a large-scaled attack could really happen.
A little deep for me, but I am sure there are those who would love.it. It is the first book I've read by Brad Thor, so maybe if I was more familiar with his writing I would have enjoyed it more.
The book is very well-written. Just not my genre, I guess.
Never having read the print version it would be hard to say. However, I did enjoy this audio book.
Honestly...a bit predictable. But very enjoyable.
I like Mr Schultz' voice characterization and cadence. I think he does a fine job.
Thor's books are particularly fun to read if you are interested in the manner in which intelligence is gathered (human intelligence, signal interception and analysis.
Very well written and the performance was great.
I dont know what to compare this book to, but it was a good listen.
I have not listened to any of Armand Schultz's other performances, but really enjoyed his narration on this book. Very gifted.
Another reviewer states that this is Brad Thor's best book, if this is true then I don't know how his previous books were published. The plot is decent but the details are awful. There is virtually no character development and as such I didn't care much about them. The story jumps from place to place into one two distinct story arcs and neither one is handled very well. It is almost like he has a good idea for a book but doesn't know how to flesh it out. There are nuggets throughout the book that are decent but decent doesn't cut it. I really regret purchasing this book. The only bright spot was the narration which was great. I urge you to buy a different book, don't waste money on this tripe.

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.
It's solidly in the top 20%.
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.
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).
What if they could make us beg to be defeated?
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.
Top 10 percent
I like the plot. I think the scenario is not implausable, not necessarily the terrorism connection but the agenda behind it.
I like most of them. No favourites.
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.
I loved the non-stop action of this book.
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.
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!
Enjoyed the story. Barely tolerated the political commentary. I hope the next book sticks to the story.
