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.

Current, fast pace, action thriller!

Any additional comments?


Story: This is a fast pace action thriller. Very current, typical Brad Thor, it reads as if it was taken right off today's headlines. Although I think it could have been developed a bit more, I expected more from Brad Thor. Overall it is an enganging and good story.

Performance: nice voice, overall good.

Story: 4 stars, good, could have been developed more, not the best but good.
Thrill factor: medium, interesting premise.
Performance: 4 stars, solid!
Overall: 4 stars, worth the time and the credit!

Great story.

Maybe more truth here than we realize. Really enjoyed this listen. Made a long road trip very short. Kept me very engaged.

Thor is a manchild

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The vocabulary

Would you be willing to try another book from Brad Thor? Why or why not?

No. Thor's profanity is like a school kid who just learned the F-bomb and thinks swearing is the path to manhood. Stupid and difficult to listen to. Real authors know how to communicate. Brad Thor does not. I had to delete this book a short way into it because I just couldn't take the gratuitous vulgarity.

What didn’t you like about Armand Schultz’s performance?

No
