Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor comes his most explosive thriller yet. Packed with action, intrigue, and sublime plotting, Black List is the ultimate tale of deception in a world where "even in death" secrets can no longer be kept.

Somewhere, deep inside the United States government, is a deadly list. Members of Congress never get to see it and only the president has the final say over it. Once your name is on the list, it doesn't come off - until you're dead.

Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath's name to the list.

Somehow, Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has framed him for treason and why they want him out of the way.

Somewhere, someone, somehow can put all the pieces together. The only question is: Will Harvath get to that person before the United States comes under the most withering domestic terrorist attack ever conceived?

    "Good story... But"
    Would you try another book from Brad Thor and/or Armand Schultz?

    I find Brad Thor's books very entertaining… But I cannot take the narrator Armand Schultz! Please please bring back George Guidall. It was very painful listening to Schultz... Unfortunately I will not purchase another Brad Thor book in which Armand Schultz narrates...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Black List?

    Bringing to light the technology and sophistication of the monitoring of our people... Scary


    Would you be willing to try another one of Armand Schultz’s performances?

    Absolutely not!!!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Based on how Hollywood continually trashes good stories… More than likely not.


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps you could release the same books narrated by both of them. Therefore people could choose which narrator they like. People fall in love with a narrator, it relates to the story as well as the plotline.

    "Disappointing"

    I read this book having not read all the previous books. I knew this going in, and it didn't affect my book "experience" much. If anything, there were a couple of characters that may have appeared in prior books that weren't developed much in this one.
    The overall plot was interesting, but the writing was bland. I'm not a prude about this sort of thing, but the profanity used by the characters was annoying. It seemed unnecessary and loaded with testosterone -perhaps geared more toward a male audience.
    I felt that the narrator's performance was terrible. He has a very flat sounding voice, and when he did character voices, the vocal inflections he chose were annoying and bordering on insulting (ex: Nicholas, the dwarf; all of the female voices).

    I would NOT recommend this book to a friend.

    Story
    "Very, Very Wordy..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the Scot Harvath series but not this particular book. The plot of the book seemed to just be an afterthought compared to the concentration on the subject of Internet/communication security. At times I felt like I was sitting through a security lecture. Thor is usually successful @ combining a great plot w/interesting tidbits of political info & heart pounding action. Not this time.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Learning about all of the technology that is being used to spy/"protect" citizens was really interesting; I just wish it could have been better interwoven into the story.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I didn't enjoy Armand Schultz' performance. His voice for Scot was too weak; it simply did not match the strong, deadly Black Ops persona. Also Nicholas sounded like a child, when we know that despite his stature he has a strong, slightly British accented voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Undecided...

    "Is this really fiction?"

    Thor continues to scare the daylights out of me from the opening lines of this book. Just like in "Kill Shot" the perception of reality overcomes the fact this is a book of fiction. If these technologies are in use or close to conception I like being on the side of the good guys.

    As for the character's I love "The Troll" as a good guy much better than the opposite I hope Thor continues to keep him there.

    The team of Thor, Schultz and Harvath make for wonderful listens in this genre.

    "I Always Enjoy a Good Conspiracy Book"

    This time, Brad Thor’s good guy, Scot Harvath, must outwit a secrete organization to save the good ole USA from tyranny. The pace is non-stop, the technology / weapons cutting edge and the villains meet with a fitting end.

    "Another well told Scot Harvath story"

    If you have read other novels with Scot Harvath as the main character you will enjoy this novel. It is typical action packed Scott Harvath and I really like it.

    The story has a catching plot with some good characters, although some of the background information passages are long they actually capture your interest.

    If you like reading novels by Vince Flynn and Lee Child, Brad Thor writes stories alone the same line with a strong main character who's not afraid off taking things into their own hands.

    "Another home run"
    Would you listen to Black List again? Why?

    There are a lot of little nuances in the existing technology that you have to review in order to fully comprehend.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scot Harvath of course...He is dedicated to his mission and his country and will stop at nothing to protect them.


    Have you listened to any of Armand Schultz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This one is on par with his other performances. Nicely delivered.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes
