Publisher's Summary

A transport plane carrying an important Taliban detainee for interrogation is shot down in a blizzard over the Hindu Kush. The storm makes rescue impossible, and for two people -navigator Michael Parson and a woman Army interpreter, Sergeant Golda battle for survival begins across some of the most forbidding terrain on earth against not only the hazards of nature, but the treacheries of man: the Taliban stalking them; the villagers, whose loyalty is unknown; and a prisoner who would very much like the three of them to be caught. All Parson and Golda have is each other, to stay alive.

Critic Reviews

"A magnificent novel. Courage and honor in the face of the enemy have not been so brilliantly portrayed since the great novels of World War II." (Jack Higgins)

The Mullah's Storm

This book was on author Brad Thor's recommended writers list, I don't recall if it was here or on another site, but I too recommend this title for anyone enjoying Thor's work or the likes of Brad Meltzer or Vince Flynn.

The story itself was quick paced and easy to get "in to". The story was not so complex that it took effort to follow and was crisply written. The narrator is Scott Brick and in my mind that gives credit in itself to the quality of the book. Brick does a great job reading as usual.

I highly recommend anyone to read/listen to this title on their next road trip.

Had a hard time putting this one down.

Would you listen to The Mullah's Storm again? Why?

There aren't many books I'd read/listen to twice because for me at least, once I get the story, I get it. This is an exception to that because there are many details that I would pay more attention to more closely that would or could explain the story better.

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

Yes, the plot was what kept me listening well into the wee hours when I should have been sleeping. Although a book of fiction, there were many true and valid insights into how our guys approach a mission and then how they carry out that mission. It also gave me some insight as to what the oppositions motivations were. It's wise to know one's adversaries. This book helps define the thought patterns of our adversaries, at least in my opinion.

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

Didn't have a favorite character, per se. I saw elements in most of the characters I admire but also elements that were negative that I personally strive to avoid. I don't think any of the portrayed characters were written in terms of black & white but rather, like us all were written in many shades of grey.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I can't think of one and not any one line would surmise the book so I won't even try.

Better than I expected

I wasn't sure that I would like a book about the war in Afghanistan, but this one was interesting and held my attention. (Also, I'm a big fan of Scott Brick, so that made it even better.)

Mullah's Storm

WEB Griffin's recommendation was what brought me to this writer and he was spot on. Well written, familiar with technology of the military and ilts training, weapon systems, leadership requirements, expectations, patriotism, UCMJ pledge, etc. It is all here and done extremely well. Thank you for a great book. We hope you write more. Done is the style of Vince Flynn, WEB Griffin, David Baladacci, Nelson Demille.

I ended up liking this very much.

I ordered this book more on the merits of another Scott Brick read than the story summary.

At the start, I thought my suspicions were confirmed that the book would be a rather pedestrian tale of survival after a plane crash under rough conditions, but soon became gripped by the read and the ability of the writer to enrich the settings with vibrant descriptive detail and exciting action. In truth, a good pairing of writer and narrator can render just about any story imaginable into a page turning journey.

As soon as I finished it, I immediately ordered "Silent Enemy," the next book by Thomas Young and Scott Brick and settled in with confidence looking forward to another satisfying experience. I hope these are the first two in a series to come.

Great listen and series! Want more of them!

These are exciting novels. Amazon has more of the series in books. Audible, please get them in audio version. Then whisper-sync and don't forget Scott Brick. A dream come true.

I tried

I just keep thinking can this much bad stuff happen at once. The story hand enough for the main character to over come and i just felt the write stretched it.
