National bestselling author of The Lions of Lucerne
Brad Thor and his indomitable hero Scot Harvath are back, raising the stakes and taking on one of the world's deadliest terrorist organizations bent on stoking a global holy war of apocalyptic proportions.
After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America. Harvath and his CIA-led team must reach Nidal before it's too late. One problem remains - they have no idea what the man looks like.
Only one person can positively identify Harvath's quarry - Meg Cassidy, a beautiful hijacking survivor. Together, Scot and Meg must untangle a maddening web of global intrigue stretching across four continents. From Macau, Jerusalem, and Chicago, to Libya, Capri, and Rome, Harvath and Cassidy find themselves locked in a desperate race against time to sort the pieces of a deadly puzzle that will test not only their physical and mental limits, but also the growing bond they feel for each other.
...same 'ol mush. Felt like the book was written in semi-semnomulance, just another day at the word processor. Very disappointing.
It was a good story, but the whole US flag waving patriotism was a bit much, fine if you live there I guess.
This is my first listen of Brad Thor's Scott Harvath series. It did not disappoint. As Harvath is attempting to save the life of his daughter, the President is kidnapped and his entire secret service team killed in the process. What follows is Harvath's tenacious search for the kidnappers as he copes with his own sense of failure for not protecting the President. This is a well paced work of fiction excellently read by Armand Schultz. I am hooked and adding the series to my list of titles to enjoy.
I really can't comment on much of this book, and I found the narrators voice so annoying that I didn't last over an hour into the listen. Unaccounted for pauses, and a snuffling voice. I really do not recommend any book narrated by Mr. Schultz.
I absolutely enjoyed this book from start to finish. The characters were very believable and I was able to immerse myself in the story line. The voice over is so far one of the best!
The stat itself is dramatic and onehas to sit up for a fast paced thriller. The story moves across various countries and situations with a lurking suspense hovering at the back. Could not bear any break in listerning. Narration was clear and excellent. I am thinking of reading other book written by this author.
Enjoyed the story and Army did a nice job with the narration, but a few words were pronounced incorrectly and disrupted the flow of the story.
It was good over all but just took a little long to get to the good part.
Start with the first book of this character series and you will eagerly continue on ... just like I did.
One annoying thing about the writing is that assault riffles are often referred to as machine guns. For someone who knows the difference, it negatively detracted from the whole story.
