The prelude to Hidden Order, Brad Thor's riveting and pulse-pounding Scot Harvath thriller.
Thank you for being honest about the times we live in while telling a good story.
Gritty, violent, brutal
The narrative in this book is NOT for anyone faint of heart nor the squeamish. This is another story featuring the character of (counter-terrorist op) Scot Harvath.
Being aware of the usual theme found in Mr. Thor's novels, this story mostly met my expectations. I was hoping that it would be a complete (mini) story in itself with, perhaps, the events in this story having repercussions to events that happen later in "Hidden Order". That might still be the case but this prequel is incomplete; it ends with a cliffhanger.
If reviewers were allowed to rate in half-star increments, I'd rate it a 3.5 (or a 7 in a 1-10 scale).
