July 4th weekend, New York City: As thousands of holiday travelers make their way out of Manhattan, a flawlessly executed terrorist attack plunges the city into a maelstrom of panic and death. Amid the chaos, an elite team of foreign operatives is systematically searching for one of their own, a man so powerful that the US government refuses to admit he even exists and will do anything to keep him hidden. Now, with the world's deadliest enemy upon America's doorstep, counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath must fight his way through the burning city streets to take down an invisible terrorist mastermind with the means to unleash hell on a global scale.

book one. Lions at Lucerne almost lost me but the books just keep getting better.
Enjoyed the series until Takedown. Let's start with...the terrorist was horrified seeing M&M's swollen penis and wondered what kind of person would think up this torture?!? Perhaps took a cue from the Islamic terrorists that bind people in cages and set them on fire or drop them into the ocean. Are we supposed to pity these people, Brad? Oh, and the other remark the terrorist said when escaping through the hotel. Paraphrasing here....we are not like them (the US) and thus restrain themselves from taking down innocent civilians when the opening salvo of the plot was that they blew every tunnel and bridge in NYC trapping thousands of innocent "civilians" Give me a break, Brad. You really need to consult your storyboard. One more in this series, if you don't get a grip, I quit. Vince Flynn you are not.
Truly my mind was blown by this amazing story. It took me sometime due to other obligations, but once I had restarted I could not stop. The twist and turns were exciting.
As always, Thor puts out a solid story with enough realities to make the book real. Cannot wait to start the next one!
Action packed and holds the reader spell bound
Held my attention all the way through
The only thing I didn't like about the book, I couldn't put it down, really messed with my sleep..
I've really enjoyed Thor's other novels, but this one was, by far, the best yet! I couldn't stop listening and finished it in one listen. Fantastic job!
A fast paced action packed thriller. It made me buy the next book in the series halfway through this one.
