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.

    "Brad does it agaon!"
    What made the experience of listening to Hidden Order the most enjoyable?

    Armand Schultz and his version of scott Harvath!
    No one else should ever narrate another brad Thor book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scott - of course.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Honestly, I love all Brad's bbok but this one was not my favorite. Maybe because it hits too close to home with the impending collapse of the Federal Reserve and the US dollar.


    Any additional comments?

    I read evey one of Brad's books! - Awsome entertainment.

    "Good but not great."

    I enjoy all of Brad Thor's books,but for some reason this one took a little while to grow on me. Long time listeners will not be disappointed. Its worth the credit.

    Story
    "Scott Harvath - police detective? Really Brad?!?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It really breaks my heart to write this review and I have been putting it off for weeks. I have been a Brad Thor fan from the start, I have met him, and really enjoy his work. But...I have to be honest, this is a far cry from his greatest work. I know he has said it is his best work yet, and I know you don't want to call your kid ugly Brad, but let's be honest, Scott Harvath playing the role of a 2nd fiddle police detective? Not good, not good at all!I truly enjoy Scott Harvath in all of his rude and crude glory. He is a take no prisoners character that does what it takes to get the job done no matter how messy he may get. Scott is a one man army, a wrecking crew if you will - not a guy that runs around holding the purse for a female police detective. I was tempted to stop listening to this book, but I was certain it would get better, it had to, but it didn't.


    What could Brad Thor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Go back to the Scott Harvath your readers know and love. Oprah's book club doesn't need you and this attempt to get on her list should be abandoned immediately with is lone book!


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

    Scott of course.


    Could you see Hidden Order being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I would not even watch it on cable.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel so bad having to say this about such a wonderful author, who has written so many wonderful tales. But with the premature passing of Vince Flynn and the loss of the master Tom Clancy this year, Brad has a huge void to fill. This book does not come close to measuring up to those great writers where once he did so; easily.

    Story
    "Not up to Par"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is not one of Brad Thor's best. First of all, the reader was very poor. If you had used George Guidell, who has done them before, the whole book would have gained 4 stars. The story line is average and the torture unnecessary.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    What ever George Guidell has narrated


    Would you be willing to try another one of Armand Schultz’s performances?

    No


    What character would you cut from Hidden Order?

    I would have made the crazy cop not that violent

    Story
    "Narrator seemed to have no emotion nor any realism"
    What did you love best about Hidden Order?

    The story line was good.


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

    Not as much as other Thor books.


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

    George Guidall would have been so much better. This narrator sounds stilted and lacked expression. Could hardly stand to finish the book because of the untalented narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Please have George Guidall narrate all the rest of Brad Thors books!

    Story
    "Painfully slow and poorly written"
    What would have made Hidden Order better?

    I've read and listened to Thor enough to look forward to his books, but it is though he had someone else write this.


    What was most disappointing about Brad Thor’s story?

    The dialogue in this book is awful.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hidden Order?

    I would have asked for a re-write.

    It just seemed like there was a lot of unnecessary information.....like the author was putting it in there to make the story long enough....it turned out to be a drag.

    "Very Timely"
    What made the experience of listening to Hidden Order the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is great and the book moved fast enough while giving plenty of detail.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I could see how this could actually happen and I learned some things about the Fed.


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

    Scot Harvath


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was scary to contemplate how easily this could happen today in America.

    "Political /economics propaganda; not a thriller"
    What would have made Hidden Order better?

    If it had not been published.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brad Thor again?

    Probably not, without verifying that he's gone back to writing thrillers.


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

    None that I can think of. I quit 10% of the way in and will not listen to any more.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hidden Order?

    Everything after the Somalia sequence.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Story
    "BORING!!"
    What disappointed you about Hidden Order?

    Way too much political rhetoric and way too little action making the book very slow. I fast forwarded through some of the more political parts and some of the slowest parts, but it was still agonizing slow. Read like a very bad police procedural. Not what I buy a Brad Thor novel for. Couldn't wait for this one to end.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably Karin Slaughter's Unseen. I might pass on Brad Thor's next novel.


    What about Armand Schultz’s performance did you like?

    His performance was okay. I agree that George Guidall is much better.


    What character would you cut from Hidden Order?

    All of them except Scott, Reed, Ryan and McGee. Thor should have just trashed the whole book and spared the reader this misery and the waste of time and credit.


    Any additional comments?

    This was Agony!
