Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling 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.

Act of War

This book ate up a good piece of my vacation as I couldn't put it down.
Moves along very nicely from Asia to America, as the story funnels it's way to the ending.
Scary prospects explored and brought to conclusion by the characters.
Good read!

3.5 stars

Ok but not great. Plot takes a weird and highly unbelievable twist that made me want to stop reading. It was past the point of no return so if kept going. Glad I did but just to say I did but I thought the plot was too much and predictable. I would give 3.5 stars if I could. This was like having 4 disparate stories running at once and not enough depth into any of them.
