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.

    "Very good Story"
    Would you listen to The Lions of Lucerne again? Why?

    I heard such great things about this author. However, I didn't want to start in the middle of a series, so I started at the beginning. Great book for the opening of the series. The narrator kept me interested and did not become monologue or mondanined.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scott has to be the best character.

    "Good story that became too predictable"

    It started out to be really promising. In the end I didnt much care for Agent Scott Harvath and his predictable one liners. It has lots of action and the story has a few layers of depth. This was my first Brad Thor book, I guess I was expecting more. The end wraps up so neatly .... it just isn't satisfying.

    Story
    "reason why I don't write"
    Would you try another book from Brad Thor and/or Armand Schultz?

    not likely, unless this was his first, then maybe I would hope he's improved. His character just kept getting hurt and nothing slowed him down, better to make the guy smarter not to get hurt. played the mormon church trip for no good reason to the story maybe he's into tithing, weird. bad humor.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm going to see if the author of the millenium series wrote anything else before he died. there are some good reads.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    he was fine


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    got anxious for it to be over.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope it's just this book and not all Brad wrote.

    "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.
