Publisher Description

Never before on CD and at a great price! When a mysterious new weapon tips the balance against American and allied forces throughout the Middle East, the only person the president can call for help is the man the administration just fired—NAVY Seal turned covert Homeland Security operative, Scot Harvath.

Caught live on Al Jazeera in an off-the-books operation, Scot Harvath is forced to go to ground, as a senator with presidential aspirations turns her sights on the White House and forces President Jack Rutledge to publicly end the career of America’s number one counter-terrorism operative.

But when the tide in the war against terror suddenly turns against the West, the president has no choice but to bring Harvath back inside. Ducking a congressional subpoena, Harvath travels to Cyprus where he learns about a weapon called The Sword of Allah, which terrorists intend to use to rid all Muslim lands of Western infidels.

As the layers of truth unfold, Harvath is a witness to realities more menacing than he ever could have imagined and must rely solely on his instincts to confront a new evil closing in on the United States.

With his characteristic precision in describing military technology, high-voltage action, and sweeping international sensibility, Blowback is a supercharged story that is sure to thrill.

    " It would probably be somehwere inbetween three and four stars if I could have my way. I really liked it. I just got a little confused at times about who was who. So, I had to go back and re-read parts. This was a really intriguing story!! And I learned more about the different groups in the Middle East than I have from any other source. Pretty interesting stuff. At the end I began to wonder how much of it was true...because some of the story line went into what the different groups are trying to accomplish. Anyway, it was a good read. "

    " THis was my first introduction to the series by Thor, and it was enough to get me hooked! I love all the mystery/intrigue/murder and mayhem that these kind of books bring into my dull suburban life! "

    " This was the audio version. It was hard to put down, a great spy story with a plot line built around a radical muslim terrorist plot using biological warfare. It was a long story, but the constant change in characters and locales kept you interested. Not to mention that it was read by George Guidall. "

    " Good book, but a little drawn out. There's lots of action and the story line keeps going and going and going. Not my favorite so far in the series. "

    " Each of Brad Thor's books delivers action, mystery, intrigue . . .and history. This book was the best fo the four I have read so far. This could either be Brad Thor's becoming a more accomplished and skillful author or my becoming a better more familiar consumer of his stories. "

    " Still has that feeling of contrivance that marks Thor's novels, but the character and series development was a lot stronger in this one. Harvath is beginning to become a more real, more likable character. "

    " Probably my least favorite in the series thus far. It was too filled with historical discussions and information that broke up the action and made the story drag. "

    " I skipped most of the middle of this book--just wasn't my cup of tea. I have read several of Thor's other books featuring Scott Havarath and enjoyed them, but this wasn't one I cared for (plot-wise). "

    " I jumped right into this series and flew through the first ones. This one was overly detailed for me. It was almost like reading a history book (which is great for people who really want to dig in). I was just looking to kick back with an action novel and this one hurt my brain. "

    " Didn't love this book, not really a page turner. Kind of bogged down in all the details. Maybe 2 1/2 stars, I think that Brad Thor and Scot Harvath are kind of a poor man's version of Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp. "

    " Very similar style to the Da Vinci Code. Definitely a page-turner and an easy read, but pretty mindless. I'd recommend it though if you're looking for something to keep you entertained "
