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.

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 ever George Guidell has narrated
I would have made the crazy cop not that violent
The story line was good.
Not as much as other Thor books.
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.
Please have George Guidall narrate all the rest of Brad Thors books!
I've read and listened to Thor enough to look forward to his books, but it is though he had someone else write this.
The dialogue in this book is awful.
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.
The narrator is great and the book moved fast enough while giving plenty of detail.
I could see how this could actually happen and I learned some things about the Fed.
It was scary to contemplate how easily this could happen today in America.
If it had not been published.
Probably not, without verifying that he's gone back to writing thrillers.
None that I can think of. I quit 10% of the way in and will not listen to any more.
Everything after the Somalia sequence.
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.
Probably Karin Slaughter's Unseen. I might pass on Brad Thor's next novel.
His performance was okay. I agree that George Guidall is much better.
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.
This was Agony!
Typical Thor/Horvath, so if you liked it before you'll like this one.But the last chapter was too preachy for me.I understand stories need to condense timelines and maybe skip a process or two, but without spoiling, the actions taken by the President at the end of the book just ask us to stretch credulity too far.Like having a pretty good meal with burned crust on the apple pie.Good overall, but the last impression left a bad taste in my mouth.
As an active / outdoor guy, I love listening to audiobooks while trail running, hiking, etc.
Yes - but only because I've read all of his other Scot Harvath books. Definitely not my favorite
Don't really have one (never really understood why Audible asks this question
Have read all of Brad Thor's books - I think he's losing his touch as his last 3 books haven't been as good as earlier ones in the series (which started in 2002). I think Thor is a great writer - but he's off his game. If you've read his other books, then of course you must read (listen) to Hidden Order as it's pretty good. Hopefully his next one is better.
sports announcer, cyclist, enjoys to travel and the outdoors.
This is not one of his better works, His main charcter seems not as in the picture as normal. I got the feeling he is developing 2 new characters for his new books and story lines. It is kinda slow. But for all of its negitives. I had no idea that the Federal Reserve was not a part of the government and for that reason and how it is explained it is worth listening too. If all of the facts he shares in this book about the Federal Reserve are true then it is shocking to realize that the Fed is not a governmental agency. Shocking and Scary
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.
As expected, unfortunatly I guessed the ending half way through the book nearly as it happened.
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.
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!
