Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor brings readers his darkest and most intriguing thriller yet - a terrifying story of espionage and betrayal - brilliantly paced with superb nonstop action.

Born in the shadows and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist.

When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States.

With the CIA's intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists' network and prevent one of the biggest threats the United States has ever faced.

Simultaneously, a foreign wet work team has been sent to California. Their target: one of Hollywood's most famous filmmakers.

While working on a secret documentary project, movie producer Larry Salomon has unknowingly exposed one of the world's wealthiest and most politically connected powerbrokers - a man with a radical anti-American agenda poised to plunge the nation into deadly, irreversible chaos.

As the plots rocket to their pulse-pounding conclusion and the identities of the perpetrators are laid stunningly bare, Harvath will be left with only one means to save America. Unable to trust anyone, he will be forced to go Full Black.

Intense and frighteningly realistic, Full Black is, hands down, Brad Thor's most riveting thriller to date.

    Story
    "Very Impressed! Now I need to start from 1st book."
    What did you love best about Full Black?

    Glad it was recommended to me. While looking up the other books starring this character, I found the first two books are not recorded yet. So I will wait for them to be released then start from the beginning.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the references to the progressive movement that has been seeping into our society developing into such a confusing understanding of our government. And how this misguided influence could develop into a similar scenario like this.


    Which character – as performed by Armand Schultz – was your favorite?

    Scot Harvath of course

    "Best Voice Talent Around"
    What made the experience of listening to Full Black the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator is great with various voices and keeps them consistent so that you can follow the various characters with ease. that allows you to enjoy the story more, which is also a great thriller full of twists and turns. Loved the story and the Narrator made it a 5 star experience.


    What about Armand Schultz’s performance did you like?

    His command of various voices for the different characters was astounding.

    Story
    "Ok, not great"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Interesting story but very preachy at times. Suspense level is ok, but outcomes are almost telegraphed. Performance was very good. Didn't get tired of the voice.


    What does Armand Schultz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Audio enhances the drama and suspense.


    Did Full Black inspire you to do anything?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    Relatively new to audio books but I like them in the car (phone jacked in) and in the clinic

    Story
    "Amazing! Riveting no- stop action."
    If you could sum up Full Black in three words, what would they be?

    There is much to love about this book 'Full Black' - Intrigue, action packed and a true page turner.


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

    I love all the settings shared in the book. Brad Thor brings the story to life much like Ludlum, each city across the globe is brought vividly to life.
    The dialogue between the reporter, Winston and Standing have an amazing, conversation over dinner, a modern thriller based on present day politics.The entire book is a fantastic thriller, case closed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to pick a favorite, I love the physicality of Scott and the interaction with the military and Seal teams.

    "Brad Thor "grabs" you!"
    Would you listen to Full Black again? Why?

    I am not fond of listening to books a second time around. Maybe several years from now but not now


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

    I kept waiting to find out how all of the pieces were going to be pulled together somehow. Brad Thor has lots of different things going on at once and then pulls the thread to make it all make sense within the last 1/4 of the book


    Which character – as performed by Armand Schultz – was your favorite?

    The englishman MI5 agent


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No

    "Maybe the best"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Full Black to be better than the print version?

    Being able to immerse yourself in the mind of Brad Thor is scary. Armand Schultz does a fantastic job portraying the characters. Having to drive an hour each way to work; this is the only way I get to read... er listen :)


    What did you like best about this story?

    Brad Thor has captured the dichotomy of USA politics in its extreme. If I didn't know this was fiction then I might have thought it was factual.


    What does Armand Schultz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Armand Schultz breaths life into the characters of the book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Chapters 15 and 33. Read/listen to the book to find out ;)


    Any additional comments?

    By far the best book in the series

    He makes you feel as he's into the book as much as the reader.


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

    Yes

    Story
    "Very complex for first time reader"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not sure. It depends on whether they like in-depth, terrorist, clandestine operation-type stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked all the characters. I liked the surprise when they hit the cell where the car was parked with the book on the dash.


    What about Armand Schultz???s performance did you like?

    Voices were clearly defined in most cases. Easy to tell who was talking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me nervous that such a large-scaled attack could really happen.


    Any additional comments?

    A little deep for me, but I am sure there are those who would love.it. It is the first book I've read by Brad Thor, so maybe if I was more familiar with his writing I would have enjoyed it more.

    The book is very well-written. Just not my genre, I guess.
