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.

    "Freakin. Awesome."

    One of the best books I've read in a long time. Great story! Loved the action, and adventure aspect to it. Some of the fact checking need to be looked over twice however, but all in all, highly recommended.

    "Good, but mechanical"
    What did you love best about The Lions of Lucerne?

    This is very entertaining but the narrator becomes very mechanic and methodical throughout the story. Not much emotion/inflection in the reading.

    Story
    "Popcorn Fiction"

    It's definitely readable although the characters are so over the top and ridiculous it's some times hard to maintain my suspension of disbelief. The main character is such an enormous jerk I really wanted him to die expect that pretty much everyone else is even more of a jerk.

    I'm not saying I'll never read another of Thor's books again , but it's not going to be near the top of my reading list for quite some time.

    "Ok book"

    The book in my opinion is a solid 3.5 lt was decently entertaining but not earth shattering. I enjoyed the Mitch Rapp and Jack Reacher serious a lot more. This being the first one, I am curious if they get better.

    "rubbish don't waist your time"

    what an awfull book. Shallow characters, too much useless detail. An all American hero story. completely unbelievable ! narrator was fine until he had to do foreign accents. I will never read a book by this author again.

    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.
