#1 WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER
Deadly operative Scot Harvath faces down democracy’s most powerful enemy in #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor’s new white-knuckle thriller.
High in the Himalayas, armed with a host of barbaric, improvised weapons, Chinese troops ambush a contingent of highly decorated Indian soldiers. The brutal, hand-to-hand combat lasts for over six hours, destabilizing the already tenuous relationship between the two nuclear neighbors.
Fearful of the global consequences of engaging Beijing head-on, countless United States administrations have passed the buck.
But when a covert American diplomat tasked with negotiating an Asian version of NATO is murdered on the streets of Jaipur, doing nothing is no longer an option. It is time to unleash Scot Harvath.
As America’s top spy, Harvath has the unparalleled skills and experience necessary to handle any situation, but this mission feels different.
Thrust into a completely unfamiliar culture, with few he can trust, the danger begins to mount the moment he lands in India. Amidst multiple competing forces and a host of deadly agendas, it is nearly impossible to tell predator from prey.
With democracy itself hanging in the balance, Harvath will risk everything to untangle the explosive plot and bring every bad actor to justice.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In this international thriller, the murder of an undercover operative sheds light on a covert Chinese offensive. After the assassination of an old colleague, American superspy Scot Harvath is sent to the troubled border of India and China to investigate. Joining forces with a retired Indian cop, Harvath soon realizes that he and his wisecracking comrade must face off against Asia’s largest superpower to solve the murder—and defend democracy. Brad Thor’s exceptional talent for crafting riveting fiction out of real global issues puts us right in the center of this political maelstrom, leading to an explosive climax. Armand Schultz’s narration sustains the breakneck pace. This is one breathless thriller.
Awful. Tried 3 times to get thru. Can get past the first 30 minutes. Just rambles
