In his daring and chilling first novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor draws us into a sinister labyrinth of political intrigue and international terrorism, serving up an explosive cocktail of unrelenting action as one man is pushed to the edge.
On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the President of the United States has been kidnapped and his Secret Service detail massacred. Only one agent has survived—ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath. He doesn’t buy the official line that Middle Eastern terrorists are behind the attack and begins his own campaign to find the truth and exact revenge. But now, framed for murder by a sinister cabal, Harvath takes his fight to the towering mountains of Switzerland—and joins forces with beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney’s Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus—where their only chance for survival lies inside the den of the most lethal team of professional killers the world has ever known…
He's fearless. He's tireless. If you get him angry, as does the chief of staff of the vice-president of the United States, he'll pop you with an uppercut. He's Secret Service

Engaging, Exciting, Entertaining
Author Brad Thor has a talented ability to draw the reader into the story. The pace is fast, the plot moves along well and the characters are sufficiently developed so the reader can picture them, see what they're doing, but cannot predict their next move. Thor offers technical definitions sparingly and economically. He spares us from ad nauseum descriptions of handguns, military equipment, automobiles and other things that some writers fill pages with. He knows what he's talking about but doesn't flaunt it. In short, Thor writes like we think.
Had some slow parts but definitely worth the read. Made me go and buy more of his books.
Great first book
My first Brad Thor book after hearing good things from other friends. I'm a big Vince Flynn fan as well as Lee Child and Brad Thor has added himself as another favorite. Great writing style and a book that kept me in suspended always wondering how Harvath was going to get his way out of the next hairy situation. Can't wait to rad the rest!
