Publisher's Summary

In a daring and chilling debut, Brad Thor draws us into a sinister labyrinth of political intrigue and international terrorism, serving up an explosive cocktail of unrelenting action as one man is pushed to the edge.

On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the unthinkable has just become a nightmarish reality: 30 Secret Service agents have been viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States kidnapped by one of the most lethal terrorist organizations in the Middle East - the Fatah Revolutionary Council.

But surviving agent and ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath doesn't believe the Fatah Revolutionary Council is responsible for the attack. Driven by his professional code of duty and honor, Harvath creates his own rules to get some answers. But his search for the truth raises the blood pressure of his superiors...and casts his own life in mortal jeopardy. The deadly machinations have been set in motion by a shadowy coalition, comprising some of the highest-ranking officials in government and business - men who operate above the law, men who realize the threat Harvath poses to their hidden agenda...men who will do anything to stop him.

Framed for murder and on the run, Harvath takes his own brand of justice to the towering mountains of Switzerland where he finds an improbable ally in the beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney's Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus - and enter the den of the most notorious team of professional killers the world has ever known.

    "Exciting Tale"
    Any additional comments?

    Exciting from the first page to the last. Scott is a Navy Seal and the head of the President's Secret Service advance team for his ski trip with his daughter in Utah. Things go horribly wrong when the President is kidnapped and 30 Secret Service agents are killed. Scott is the only survivor of the Secret Service Team. He is determined to catch the kidnappers and rescue the President. His efforts putting the crime together are extraordinary as he is tracked relentlessly by the bad guys. The reader was very good and the story was enthralling. I highly recommend this book.

    "Great spy story"

    Great spy story in the tradition of Ludlum. All but 1 of the president's Secret Service detail is murdered & the president is kidnapped. The surviving Secret Service agent, Scot Harvath, slowly navigates the political labyrinth to learn the truth. Scot is an excellent addition to the characters of spy catchers.

    The narration of Armand Schultz is superb. Some narrators detract from the story while others add to it. Mr. Schultz is one who increases the pleasure of listening to a book.

    "Can't believe I read the whole thing...."
    Any additional comments?

    I get tired of the bizarre Mormon spin that some authors feel they have to perpetuate. There wasn’t any accuracy in how he portrayed the Mormon community or belief system. Of course, this is a book of fiction so there is the artistic license. I enjoy books that are well researched and have some credibility to them even if it is a book of fiction.

    "great book, could not put it down"

    Great book, loved the ending. I am going to try the next in the series and hope it is going to be just as good if not better. If you like underdog military secret spy type books then this is your type of book.

    I couldn't get past the first chapter. The profanity was just too much to handle.

    "Pretty bad"

    I know Brad Thor sells a lot of books, so this must appeal to someone. Unfortunately, it was not me. I came back to it twice, and just couldn't do it. Sorry, but I thought it was pretty bad.

    Story
    "Should be titled "1,001 ways to kill an agent""
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, a few narrow misses makes for a "thriller" the number that the author had in this book should be in the "fantasy" genre.


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

    The plot was interesting but then you have to wait while over and over again he is on the edge of death's door, took the book right out of being believable.


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

    he keeps the voices in perspective and believable, you immediately know who is speaking.

    Story
    "Brad Thor brings us to our world as it really is"
    If you could sum up The Lions of Lucerne in three words, what would they be?

    Best thriller yet


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is the world today. It can happen in a flash and we are at war with the Jihadists that want to kill all the infidels. That includes the whole of America.
    They are bringing the war to us and we have to destroy these evil people.
    I quote Edmund Burke, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing! "
    It is time to strike back we need more men like Scott Horvath to keep The USA safe.


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

    Scott Horvath


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Once begun it's a captivating story that you can't put down. I finished it in less than a week.


    Any additional comments?

    We need people to know that what Brad Thor writes is the truth about the world we live in.
    Just look around, Paris, Isis in the USA carrying out Lone Wolfe attacks. Unfortunately there are more to come and Brad Thor hits it right on the head of the nail.
    We need to listen what the author writes about, it is more fact than fiction.
