Publisher's Summary

Action-packed from the start, Hidden Order demonstrates yet again why Brad Thor is the "master of thrillers".

A string of high-profile kidnappings has Washington, D.C., in a frenzy. When the victims begin turning up dead, frenzy turns to panic. And when the ransom demand is finally made public, panic will turn to terror. In Brad Thor's riveting new thriller, the stakes have never been higher, nor the lines between good and evil so hard to discern.

    Story
    "I didn't expect to call a book too simple till now"
    What disappointed you about Hidden Order?

    The dialogs are not only cheesy and impossible to imagine in real life conversation but they are plain simple. The language is unsophisticated and redundant, and forces the characters into dialog just to prove a point.


    Any additional comments?

    I just couldn't get interested in the story.

    Story
    "Entertaining"
    Would you listen to Hidden Order again? Why?

    This is a good book to listen to while working in the yard.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was a little corny but entertaining. The power of the Fed but in a James Bond sort of theme.


    What does Armand Schultz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Schultz is an outstanding reader. He brought every character to life. I was particular impressed with the contrast he was able to deliver. From "sexy woman" to "tough guy" to "nerd" all his voices were clearly distinguishable.


    Any additional comments?

    For listeners who are entertained by conspiracy stories based on powerful organizations, this is a book for you. Entertaining and well read and occasionally thought provoking.

    "A bad read kills a good story"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story might actually be good, but the irritating nasal twang and repetitive speech patterns of the narrator only left me thinking how much better it would be in the hands of someone like George Guidall.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Armand Schultz?

    George Guidall !!!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All of them, because of the narration.

    "Hidden Order"
    Any additional comments?

    Audiobook. There is a great deal of historical information, and big picture finance data regarding the Federal Reserve, all which is educational. But, I'm disappointed; Hidden Order is a boring story. Having read several Brad Thor thrillers, I was anticipating action and there was little. A savvy Boston female cop teams with Scot Harvath, coyly dancing through innuendo as they scour the history of Boston, and murders continue to pile. Way too much explaining of history and motivation for my taste.

    I heard a rumor, not long ago, that Brad Thor would ghost write some of the late Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series. Hope not. I knew Vince Flynn, he was a friend of mine (Kidding, not really). But, Scot Harvath is no Mitch Rapp. Scot may kick the first base pad when he’s pissed, but Mitch will pull it out of the ground and make you eat it.
    Hidden Order is not up to the quality of book that Brad Thor is capable of producing, in my humble opinion. The narration is fine.

    "complex storyline, hard to follow"
    What did you like best about Hidden Order? What did you like least?

    The concept of the secret agencies within the CIA was intriguing. Overall, the storyline was way too complex to easily follow in audio format.

    "Average... and Never Takes Off......"

    The story had potential, but just slowly moves along. Narration was ok, but not the best I have heard this narrator perform in other books. On discount, or you have a credit to spare go for it.

    "to Cliche"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was predictable and thd the reader was just awful. The story lacked creativity and originality. I've watched 80's bromances with less Cliches. Won't be reading any Brad Thorn.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brad Thor again?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Armand Schultz’s performance?

    Sounded corny.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointing.

    Any additional comments?

    Brad Thor is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. He has written several of these thriller novels and all of them have been sensational. I've studied extensively the back ground of the federal reserve and from research everything Brad explained in story form for this novel seemed pretty much spot on. I enjoy an author who creates a rivoting story about problems that seem to effect our daily lives whether we know it or not.

    This was a book that I didn't want to stop listening to and one that made my long commute to work seem much shorter.

    "My First Brad Thor Book and Not My Last"
    Where does Hidden Order rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have only listened to a few audio books so far. This book is definitely one of my favorites.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ryan was my favorite character, and I would love to know who Brad Thor would want to play her in a movie.


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

    Harvath, or the last bad guy whom shall not be named.


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

    Crazy Honor....or Money Maker Assasins


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun book containing more than a few interesting historical and current tidbits. One of the few books I have read that actually has a good wrap-up ending.

    Story
    "average......"
    Would you try another book written by Brad Thor or narrated by Armand Schultz?

    I think as it is one of my first Brad Thor book I will try one again, as there are a few. But reluctantly I will sacrifice a credit for it.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    As expected, unfortunatly I guessed the ending half way through the book nearly as it happened.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was average either way, there definitely are better narrators that possibly could have done a better job! Once again I'll give the benefit if the doubt and will try again this narrator to see if its the book or the narrator.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I think its an average book, that is narrated okayish, not a complete waste of time but there is better books to listened too! Sorry!
