This stunning follow-up to The Athena Project that predicted the National Security Agency scandal and shows that “Brad Thor is as current as tomorrow’s headlines” (Dan Brown), is now available unabridged from Encore for a great value!

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor returns with this explosive thriller. Somewhere deep inside the United States government is a closely guarded list. Members of Congress never get to see it—only the President and a secret team of advisers. Once your name is on the list, it doesn’t come off…until you’re dead.

Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath’s name.

Somehow Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has targeted him and why they want him out of the way.

Somewhere, someone, somehow can put all the pieces together. The only question is, will Harvath get to that person before the United States suffers the most withering terrorist attack ever conceived?

Intense, action-packed, and frighteningly real, Black List blurs the line between fiction and reality and once again reaffirms why Brad Thor “is arguably the best thriller writer of our time” (Suspense Magazine) and “America’s favorite author” (KTTX). Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taylor | 2/19/2014

    " I enjoyed this book but I think things always seemed to go the protagonist's way a little too much. Every plan worked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wdmoor | 2/17/2014

    " Not my favorite Brad Thor novel but still far superior to most thrillers out there. Part of the problem is Mr. Thor brings the narrative to a screeching halt with a long rant about the loss of privacy in this country and the American government's complicity in abetting this loss. And it is chilling to wonder why the government is collecting so much data on it's citizens - just what are law enforcement and intelligence agencies doing with it - but it drags the plot down as he envisions an information Pearl Harbor that for this reader didn't quite click. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cameron | 2/5/2014

    " This book has the all of subtlety of a 12 year old's dream and the author has the writing ability to match. Awful "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Craig | 2/5/2014

    " What a great read! I really enjoyed the pace of the ending. Some books have too short of an ending where there is no meat to the ending. This book has a great depth to the ending! Really liked it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Schreiber | 2/4/2014

    " where did this author come from? I'm hooked now....reading another of his books now, seems just as good.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody | 2/3/2014

    " Good spy stuff...too much technical jargon that could have been left out, but overall did really enjoy it. Will have to read more with the character Scott Harvath. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nicholas Lefevre | 2/2/2014

    " I bought this as an airport book based on the cover blurbs and hoping for a diverting thriller. I suppose its target audience is potential militia members with a cartoonish understanding of politics and business. Chapter 33 was the breaking point (though I did drag myself through the rest of the book). In that chapter, one cartoon character, Nicholas, outlines a confused unholy alliance between high level government figures and a nefarious defense/security contractor. The main character, Harvath, listens as a cypher feeding lines solely to advance Nicholas' narrative. Never once does he ask a probing question based on even a perfunctory knowledge of corporate governance, the media, or the Internet. Too often thriller authors can't seem to write characters with the brains to have achieved their positions. Sometimes that's excusable for the plot. This one goes way too far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/27/2014

    " Interesting plot, good action, and intrigue. Thor is a reasonably good author, but does a lot of telling, not showing. I really enjoyed the first chapter. Pulled me right into the book. The book slowed in the middle and the ending was OK. Definitely get a few free sample chapters on the Kindle and see if you like it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Monique | 1/19/2014

    " Great book right up to the abrupt ending. I didn't like that at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara Mcnulty | 1/17/2014

    " Well-researched with an interesting plot; however, the writing was cliched & included a lot of tangents that weren't needed. Also, Thor seemed to be reaching with many of his segues and with connecting events. Lastly, the ending was tied up too easily. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 1/10/2014

    " Definitely one of Thor's better books. I was very disappointed with the one before this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jocelyn Newcomb | 1/10/2014

    " I liked this book. Quick page Turner. Good follow up to full black "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dylan Brixey | 12/28/2013

    " I loved it to me Scot Harvath is an intriguing character. His character is very believable. To me Brad is one of the best political thriller writers out there today. I have read the whole series of books he has written and i love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillian Dodd | 12/22/2013

    " LOVED this book. Love all of Brad Thor's books, really. This one sucked me in from the very beginning and caused me to ignore my family a little and stay up late reading it. The technology in this book is very scary and very real. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Milton Moon Louie | 12/7/2013

    " Page turner of suspense. When are the hunted going to be the hunter. Good news. The bad guys lost. Brad and his boss beat the Black List. A "

    " Another excellent Scot Harvath adventure "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan | 10/13/2013

    " If you wrote a book in the 8th grade, chances are it would read like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathi McKenna | 8/8/2013

    " Excellent read. Scot Harvath makes a great hero. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Ptak | 6/3/2013

    " The scary part of this book is that all the technology mentioned actually exists. What happens if the surveillance technology we have to spy on foreign governments was turned on the American people? That's the premise of this book. Excellent read and quite a page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 4/30/2013

    " A pretty darned good thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Demers | 2/17/2013

    " It was good enough to keep my interest until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Opa | 1/10/2013

    " Scarry exciting. We read in this book about government plans to use the next cyberwar to take over the internet and then watch, on TV, the Defense Secretary announce a potential cyberwar with Iran. Very timely book. I didn't like all the f-words. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mitch Gerads | 12/11/2012

    " Not my favorite of the Harvath novels, but still a damn fine entry and the plot is truly terrifying. Thor proves yet again that he has an awesome handle on characterization. "
