Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor delivers his most frightening and pulse-pounding thriller ever!

After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There’s just one problem - no one knows if she can be trusted.

But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion.

With the United States facing an imminent and devastating attack, America's new president must turn to covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath to help carry out two of the most dangerous operations in the country’s history.

Code-named "Gold Dust" and "Blackbird", they are shrouded in absolute secrecy as either of them, if discovered, will constitute an act of war.

Fantastic Book

This was my first Brad Thor novel. I sure hope the others are as good as this one. A fantastic plausible story ripped from the headlines. Absolutely no low spots in the story. I couldn't put it down after the first five minutes.

Act of War

Poor narration, the narrator's voice volume is not uniform and it is distracting. Did not get into book until after third chapter.

Just so so. Not plausible.

I had trouble just focusing on the story and the reader didn't help. A waste of a credit.

Classic Brad Thor.

Detailed and consistent drama. Brad Thor never fails to deliver. Intense at times but never over the top. Respect his research and his ability to keep reader involved. Armand Schultz does his usual A+ narration.
