Publisher Description

From #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Brad Thor, comes the white-knuckled thriller The Apostle.

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.

Outstanding Read

Brad Thor has created an amazing character in Scot Harvath…Can’t put these books down…Thank You Brad

Rushed

I have read all of Mr. Thor's previous Scott Harvath escapades and this one left me underwhelmed. Not only did the Scott Harvath storyline feel rushed and empty, the entire second storyline was pointless and unwarranted. It seemed as though Mr. Thor had the premise for two separate stories outlined but not enough for two full books so he decided to combine them into one. The result of which is two stories that served as filler for each other.

The early Scott Harvath adventures are much more enjoyable than this one.

Possible dud ,

Not as compelling

It may just be me, but this book is not as good as the others in the series. The parallel story lines worked well but I found the endings to be rushed and anticlimactic. I did not have a good sense of closure with the ending here as I have in the previous books. Every author is entitled to a dud. This may be Brad Thor's.
