"Fast-paced and action-packed. Sure to please his many fans and gain new ones. Immensely satisfying and highly recommended." (Library Journal)
I like this book a lot. It kept my interest through the whole book. If you have liked the other Scott H. books you will like this one
Say something about yourself!
Brad Thor has taken his creative writing craft to a new level. He certainly stands out with the likes of Vince Flynn and David Baldacci for creating an edge of the chair novel that is guaranteed to grab you and never let you go. George Guidall provides a terrific narration. I have enjoyed all of Brad Thor's novels to date, but First Commandment is definitely a stand out.
With failing eye sight, the audio is the answer and this book is an easy, pleasurable entertainment. Enjoyed the narration, the pace and better continuity than some of his work. Plot is entertaining while unrealistic . . . but then this is fiction. No regret about downloading this one!
Big fan of Brad Thor. This book no different than the others. Fast moving, good story, great naration.
Yes. Another great job.
This book is non-stop action with a good plot. Vince Flynn readers will enjoy it. A rogue agent trying to take out the bad guys anyway he can. How can you beat that?
Another good thriller with Scot. I am never disappointed with the story's or the ending.

Seemed like everybody was out to stop Scot, and the way he was able to continue to move about to complete his personal mission without support from the person who owed his life to

Knowing that our government acts pretty much the way the book laid it out if they want you out of the way
Needs to focus on the garbage happening within the current administration as there's plenty of storylines he can continue the series with
History enthusiast with military and legal background.
Its just a good fun time. It isn't serious literature, but a good spy novel.
Seriously, George Guidall could read the phone book and I would listen to it. The guys voice is gold!
I didn't take to Scot in the first book, but the story was entertaining and I gave things a shot. Kept coming back, and I'm enjoying the books a bit more as time goes on. This one felt more like two jammed together tangents than a single coherent book, but still entertaining.
If you like Vince Flynn, you will like Brad Thor. I plan to read the rest of the Scot Horvath series
