Publisher's Summary

Every politician has a secret. And when the daughter of a politically-connected family is kidnapped abroad, America's new president will agree to anything -- even a deadly and ill-advised rescue plan -- in order to keep his secret hidden.

A new administration and a new approach to dealing with America's enemies have left covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath without a job. But when American doctor Julia Gallo is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the terms of her ransom leave the president with only one course of action. In a dangerous assignment that the United States government will deny any knowledge of, Scot Harvath must secretly infiltrate Kabul's notorious Policharki Prison and free the man the kidnappers demand as ransom -- al-Qaeda mastermind, Mustafa Khan.

But when Harvath arrives, he quickly learns that there is more to the kidnapping than anyone dares to admit. And as the subterfuge is laid bare, Harvath must examine his own career of hunting down and killing terrorists, and ask himself if he has what it takes to help one of the world's worst go free.

Brimming with the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines authenticity Brad Thor's internationally bestselling novels are known for, The Apostle doubles down on the blockbuster success of The Last Patriot and reaffirms Thor's status as the master of the political thriller.

Still breathing? Take another thrill ride with superagent Scot Harvath.

Fun, fast pace.

Another hit by Thor. I liked the double story lines, kept the book moving and interesting. Others have said there's a "racist" undertone. I didn't find that to be true at all. Armand Schultz is the man!

Can I have a refund

boring... story had no excitement. the narrating of a children's book would have had more drama then this book.

Good, but not great

I have now finished all of the books with Scott Harvath and feel like I have been on quite an adrenaline ride. While I think this is the weaker book in the series, the intensity level had to subside a little at some point! the series. I rated the other books higher. Great work and great listen.
