“The perfect all-American hero” (Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author) Scot Harvath is on the hunt for a dangerous killer bent on world domination in this white-knuckled thrill ride from #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor.
America’s worst nightmare has just become a brutal reality. The most unlikely terrorist enemy of all now holds a knife against the country’s throat. With both diplomatic and conventional military options swept from the table, the president calls upon Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent, Scot Harvath, to disable a brilliantly orchestrated conspiracy intended to bring the United States to its knees. Teamed with beautiful Russian Intelligence agent Alexandra Ivanova and a highly trained CIA paramilitary detachment, Harvath embarks on an adrenaline-fueled search that spans the world—and leads to a final, deadly showdown on American soil, with a lethal and sinister enemy from the past.
Formulaic and predictable
Interesting plot not done justice by poor dialogue and predictable progression in story telling. Everything is the ultimate. Only the hero can save the day except when he gets in trouble and miraculously gets out of it every time. Every woman is the most attractive. Every price of equipment is top shelf (except the stuff that isn’t and any actual user of such type equipment would wonder why the author picked that?). Kind of comic booky.
Narrator ruins book
This guys voice is so monotone and boring you can barely follow which characters are talking. Plot seems good but very very hard to pay attention to.
I can’t listen to this narrator
Sorry to score Brad Thors work poorly as I’m sure that the actual book is as superb as Lions of Lucerne and Path of the Assassin. I listened to the first two audiobooks when I commute or run and they were addictive and brilliantly narrated but I just can’t listen to this narrator. Zero energy and I can hardly discern the different characters. Lasted about an hour then had to quit.
