Publisher's Summary

Deadly operative Scot Harvath faces down the country’s most powerful enemy in #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor’s new white-knuckle thriller.

An unprecedented, potentially nation-ending threat has materialized on the world stage. Fearful of the global consequences of engaging this enemy, administration after administration has passed the buck. The clock, however, has run out and doing nothing is no longer an option. It is time to unleash Scot Harvath. 

As America’s top spy, Harvath has the unparalleled skills and experience necessary to handle any situation, but this assignment feels different. 

Thrust into a completely unfamiliar culture, with few he can trust, the danger begins mounting the moment he arrives. Amidst multiple competing forces and a host of deadly agendas, it becomes nearly impossible to tell predator from prey. 

With democracy itself hanging in the balance, Harvath will risk everything to untangle the explosive plot and bring every bad actor to justice.

Worst book yet by Brad Thor

This book was horrible. Just when I thought the last book was terrible. Then this one was released. I’ve enjoyed the Scott Harvath series since book 1. Unfortunately, the stories have gotten worse. This will be the last one for me. Brad Thor’s wiring for isn’t the same anymore and the narrator sounds too robotic.

Boring

I know only boring people get bored… but seriously this book was awful. I loved the earlier books but this one lacked a storyline and character development. I kept thinking it has to get better… and it never did.
Write an Athena series… scot needs a break.

Another good book by Brad Thor

Enjoyed the story, great geopolitical thriller. My biggest criticism, which I have for many of the Scott Harvath series is the third act feels rushed. The author builds a great story, with incredible details, but then finishes the book very quickly, tying up loose ends in minutes. He also leaves a lot of unanswered questions and unresolved plot points (which may come up in subsequent books). Overall an enjoyable story.

Took me a few chapters, but in the end I liked it

I am a fan of Brad Thor books and I have read or listened to every book in the series. Lately I’ve been listening to other thrillers narrated by Scott Brick… so it was hard for me to listen to this narrator… in the first chapter he mispronounced a hat trick of words… at this level you just don’t expect that. His Harvath voice is a little cheesy… but by the end I was fully immersed in the content.

This book felt like Thor phoned it in a little bit… I have noticed recently that other authors are going deeper, with direct action knowledge and details that Brad’s books of late have not attained. Orphan X, James Reese, and even Jack Ryan characters are more complex. I know Thor can do it, his characters can go so many directions and I am excited for the next one… I’m a Scott Harvath fan for life!
The best part of the book, in my opinion, was the dialogue ending with gratitude! Its so true… unplug from the news, the Chaos of the internet and live a life filled with love and gratitude!!!! That’s a good word Brad Thor! Good Job!!!!

Great new setting and characters

I have read all of the Scot Harvard series, and this is definitely one of my favorites. It is not the best, which I actually think is Black Ice, but the new setting of India is amazing. Additionally, the new characters of Asha, and especially VJ, are top notch.

My only criticism is the villains in this story seem pretty shallow. I was really hoping, given the build up to him, that the assassin known as “Carbon” would turn out to be a recurring foil for Scot. Other than these minor issues, this is a great read. Definitely recommend it.

Another great book!

Scot Harvath and Brad Thor continue to deliver. If I had one small critique, it is the ending sort of wrapped up rather quickly.

The dynamic of Nicholas is essential to the books and I would t mind even more interaction. But the character of Asha was brilliant and I would hope that she appears again in a future book or is recruited by the company. I just hope the next book doesn’t take so long to come out!!!

Brad Thor Never disappoints

Great story kept me interested the entire time. Scot Harvath is a hero we need in real life.

Not a good book

Very disappointing book. I have read all of Brad Thor's previous books, and this one didn't measure up. Multiple sub-plots, which never came together into any kind of cohesive story. Plus parts were unrealistic (the 2 bodyguards killing each other, for example).
