From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor comes “his latest pulse-pounding adventure” (The Real Book Spy) that follows covert operative Scot Harvath as he is called upon to stop an ISIS-led plot to destroy the Vatican.
As a storm rages across the Mediterranean Sea, a terrifying distress call is made to the Italian Coast Guard. Days later, a body washes ashore. Identified as a missing high value terrorism suspect, his name sends panic through the Central Intelligence Agency.
Where was he headed? What was he planning? In a race against time, the CIA taps an unorthodox source to get answers: Navy SEAL turned covert counterterrorism operative, Scot Harvath. Hired on a black contract, Harvath will provide the deniability the United States needs, while he breaks every rule along the way.
Packed with heart-stopping action, fascinating characters, and electrifying intrigue, Brad Thor does it again with “his best book yet. Powerful and reads like the news of what is going on today” (Glenn Beck, #1 New York Times bestselling author).
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
When terrorists target a sprawling festival in the U.S. desert, the global intelligence community is on high alert. Thankfully Scot Harvath—a former Navy SEAL turned counterterrorism operative who possesses field-tested smarts that help him squeak out of almost any jam—is on the case. Thor’s 17th Harvath book launches his bluntly brilliant hero on a thrill-ride plot that whipsaws from the sun-bleached Nevada desert to the hushed halls of the Vatican.

Solid, fast-paced story
The story was solid, but a lot of the dialogue was clunky and one-dimensional. Much like vintage Tom Clancy, the best writing is the detail and action and not the human interaction.
Use of Force
Wonderful read. Enjoyed it immensely.
Use of force
Another great novel. This author is the best on military knowledge and describing how a person handles the stress of that type of life.
