Born in the shadows and kept from heads of state, some missions are so deadly that they simply don’t exist. When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States.

With the CIA’s intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists’ network and prevent one of the biggest threats the US has ever faced. Simultaneously, a foreign wet work team has been sent to California. Their target: one of Hollywood’s most famous filmmakers.

While working on a secret documentary project, movie producer Larry Salomon has unknowingly exposed one of the world’s wealthiest and most politically connected powerbrokers—a man with a radical anti-American agenda poised to plunge the nation into deadly, irreversible chaos.

As the plots rocket to their pulse-pounding conclusion and the identities of the perpetrators are laid stunningly bare, Harvath will be left with only one means to save America. Unable to trust anyone, he will be forced to go Full Black. Download and start listening now!

    " So much better than his previous book. This was the Brad Thor that I enjoy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 2/4/2014

    " I just finished the audio version of Full Black and was blown away. I found myself cheering on the way to work listening to chapter 32. The manner in which Brad Thor weaves real, current political climate into a work of fiction is inspiring. I hated getting to work each morning because that meant I had to put Scott Hovath on hold for 10 hours. The ending had me on the edge of my seat and now I can't wait for the next installment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Gallagher | 1/30/2014

    " Ehhh, that about sums it up. Started good, trailed off and then there was such an anticlimactic ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monnie | 1/27/2014

    " Overly "preachy" politically speaking in several spots, but an excellent book that was hard to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 1/22/2014

    " A fast moving thriller that could have been taken out of today's headlines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Popal | 1/16/2014

    " I felt that he got to political for to much of the book. The action was not as good as the other Scoot Harvath novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anandh Sundar | 12/28/2013

    " I usually love his books, but this one had very less suspense. All the baddies were revealed at the onset itself, leaving little to the imagination. While the (somewhat) soppy ending would delight romance fans, I was left wanting more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra Stombres | 12/21/2013

    " This is amazingly good, refreshing and full of insight! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 12/3/2013

    " Both the story and the writing were adequate - neither was good. Don't waste your time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Inez | 11/13/2013

    " Interesting, thought-provoking, a real page turner. "

    " Awesome book. This is my first taste of Brad Thor and his Scott Harvath books. Great action, great characters and serious terrorist threats reminiscent of 24. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jay | 10/11/2013

    " An interesting story but the right-wing agenda is hard to take. "

    " This was my first Brad Thor book, it was very good. "

    " Good book. Will have the read the other Scot Harvath books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 8/31/2013

    " Listened to this while travelling to N.C. and back. Entertaining. The 20 minute interview with the author and reader was a nice bonus. Engaging characters, relatively good dialog, and good action. Not great fiction, but a good listen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doris | 8/22/2013

    " It feels like its happening! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 8/6/2013

    " #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor's 10th Scott Harvath thriller is the series' most intense and gripping yet. Another military thriller where the government is involved with the terrorists so Harvath is pretty much on his own to save the day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee | 5/3/2013

    " Good book, thrilling all the way through. Ending left it open for the next Scott Harvath character book. What will happen next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 4/9/2013

    " Another great Scot Harvath mystery. As I've said before, Brad Thor gets a little bogged down on the political preaching for me, but the stories are interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brannigan | 12/16/2012

    " This was my first Brad Thor book and I enjoyed the story overall. The only complaints I had was the fact that the story seemed to take a while to develop and there wasn't enough action throughout. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy Snyder | 10/4/2012

    " Enjoyed another exciting book from Brad Thor. Very similar to the other Scott Harvath book. Looking forward to the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maurice | 10/3/2012

    " Think this was my last Brad Thor. Read this one out of order. Thor's over reaching views came out more in last two books. Good stuff but I've had enough. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 9/15/2012

    " I listened to this book. First one I've read by Thor. He certainly connects all the dots in this political crime thriller to the point that makes me wonder what is real and what is fiction. All the terrorist and economic plotlines seem completely plausible and it scares the crap out of me. Wow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bart | 11/7/2011

    " Awesome page turner for those who like fast paced spy books. Lots of minor stories that come together in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryclaire | 11/7/2011

    " Brad Thor is usually one of my favorite authors, but this book didn't make the grade of his best works. I love the thrill of the CIA and the suspense of the book but too much political comments that make you loose interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanna | 10/27/2011

    " Always filled with action and intrigue. I love Scott. His life does remind me of Jack from 24 as bad things are ever part of his life. I enjoy his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 10/11/2011

    " Another intense, exciting thriller from Brad Thor. Scott Harvath is a chip of the old Mitch Rapp. Sometimes the subject matter in these books are too close to home and feel like real threats (which they may truly be). Hard to put down once you start. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 DJ | 10/5/2011

    " Fabulous read that will make you think...highly recommend. I will elaborate on this review after it appears in Suspense Magazine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 10/2/2011

    " Good book. Will have the read the other Scot Harvath books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 10/2/2011

    " Excellent read. Love the books by Brad Thor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brad | 9/29/2011

    " Not Thor's best book. Compared to the last book I read from him, this was much less action and much more conspiracy theory. I'm not sure he could have been more obvious about the character James Standing being modeled after George Soros. Not a bad read if you need something fairly mindless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 9/25/2011

    " Typical Scot Harvath story...well written, suspenseful, and heavy on conspiracy theories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary | 9/25/2011

    " From start to finish you can't put this down and what an ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 9/22/2011

    " This was the first Thor book that I read. It reminded me of Tom Clancy's Dead or Alive. It was good but not great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christian | 9/20/2011

    " Started just a bit slow but got going quickly. This one is interesting because there is a very interesting political perspective embedded. I really enjoyed this one. "
