Publisher's Summary

In a daring and chilling debut, Brad Thor draws us into a sinister labyrinth of political intrigue and international terrorism, serving up an explosive cocktail of unrelenting action as one man is pushed to the edge.

On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the unthinkable has just become a nightmarish reality: 30 Secret Service agents have been viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States kidnapped by one of the most lethal terrorist organizations in the Middle East - the Fatah Revolutionary Council.

But surviving agent and ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath doesn't believe the Fatah Revolutionary Council is responsible for the attack. Driven by his professional code of duty and honor, Harvath creates his own rules to get some answers. But his search for the truth raises the blood pressure of his superiors...and casts his own life in mortal jeopardy. The deadly machinations have been set in motion by a shadowy coalition, comprising some of the highest-ranking officials in government and business - men who operate above the law, men who realize the threat Harvath poses to their hidden agenda...men who will do anything to stop him.

Framed for murder and on the run, Harvath takes his own brand of justice to the towering mountains of Switzerland where he finds an improbable ally in the beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney's Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus - and enter the den of the most notorious team of professional killers the world has ever known.

    "My OCD is the only reason I finished it"

    The story and performance are what kept it from getting one star overall. I really think the story was good, it just wasn't written nearly as well as it could have been.

    I recently finished the Mitch Rapp series and was looking for something similar. Harvath is no Rapp.

    Rapp wouldn't miss his target and wouldn't constantly let the bad guys get the drop on him.

    There is no way that our Seals are as inept as portrayed.

    "Good book"

    I have heard other books by Brad Thor and I believe this was one of his first books? but I can tell he has gotten better with his newer books. I like his books and what he writes about being ex-Military.

    I wanted to try something different and this was a great choice. I recommend anyone that is sick of the romcoms should try this thriller.

    "The beginning of a great series?"

    I love to read Brad Thor. These types of international thrillers are not usually at the top of my go-to list of genres to read, but I do enjoy them. So, when I take the time to read one, it needs to be a good one! Brad Thor is an author that I feel as if I can go to without much concern that the story will be good. This was no exception! Such a great, intriguing story. Scott Harvath is a fantastic hero, and even though there were some fairly cliche situations that he found himself in, I found myself really enjoying this book. Armand Schultz is a serviceable narrator, as well. He was not my favorite, but he did not detract from the experience. I will move on to the next book in the series!

    "Not the worst but, by no means one of the best."

    I read along with the narrator which didn't make the stoy flow any better. And it took me quite a while to finally finish the book. I am interested enough to read the next book in this series but, if that is another three star performance from the narrator and more lackluster stories then I'll just drop the series.

    too long, too wordy. many chapters and uneccesary detail could have been omitted to improve the flow of the book.

    "rubbish don't waist your time"

    what an awfull book. Shallow characters, too much useless detail. An all American hero story. completely unbelievable ! narrator was fine until he had to do foreign accents. I will never read a book by this author again.

    "Interesting twist of a Potus kidnap"

    Scott is a strong character who you get to like quickly. The other "players" are written well. I enjoyed the fact that things went wrong as the book progressed and the handling of apparent mistakes. Gave it a realism that was good. Satisfying end.

    Story
    "Brad Thor brings us to our world as it really is"
    If you could sum up The Lions of Lucerne in three words, what would they be?

    Best thriller yet


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is the world today. It can happen in a flash and we are at war with the Jihadists that want to kill all the infidels. That includes the whole of America.<br/>They are bringing the war to us and we have to destroy these evil people.<br/> I quote Edmund Burke, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing! "<br/>It is time to strike back we need more men like Scott Horvath to keep The USA safe. <br/>


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

    Scott Horvath


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

    Once begun it's a captivating story that you can't put down. I finished it in less than a week.


    Any additional comments?

    We need people to know that what Brad Thor writes is the truth about the world we live in.<br/>Just look around, Paris, Isis in the USA carrying out Lone Wolfe attacks. Unfortunately there are more to come and Brad Thor hits it right on the head of the nail.<br/>We need to listen what the author writes about, it is more fact than fiction.
