Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"...[A] blood-soaked sequel to the presidential-kidnapping debut that so arrested critics....Thor leaves little to the imagination when it comes to the cut and thrust of terrorist-busting; the action is relentless and gory, the pacing sublime, as is the authenticity of everything from weaponry to locales." ( Ottawa Citizen)
"If Thor's second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair....the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed." ( Publishers Weekly)
"If Thor's second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair....the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed." (Dan Brown, New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code)

Predictable, Inaccurate and Trite

...same 'ol mush. Felt like the book was written in semi-semnomulance, just another day at the word processor. Very disappointing.

A bit heavy on the patriotism

It was a good story, but the whole US flag waving patriotism was a bit much, fine if you live there I guess.

The President Is Missing

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.

Maybe with a different narrator

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.

Loved every moment!

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!

Enthralling...

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.

Good but check pronunciation

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.

Great Character Engagement

Start with the first book of this character series and you will eagerly continue on ... just like I did.

very engaging

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.
