Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Scot Harvath series and “heir to Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum” (Chicago Tribune) returns with this unputdownable, white-knuckled thriller following the Secret Service agent as he’s on the trail of the world’s most ruthless terrorist.

After rescuing the President from kidnappers in Thor’s roaring debut, The Lions of Lucerne, Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing, or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points toward one man—the world’s most dangerous terrorist.

Only one problem remains: Harvath and his CIA-led team have no idea what the man looks like. With no alternative, they are forced to recruit a civilian—a woman who has survived a brutal hijacking and is now the only person who can positively identify their quarry. From the burning deserts of North Africa to the winding streets of Rome, Harvath must brave a maelstrom of bloodshed and deception before the world is engulfed in flames.

"I love Brad Thor books, its like reading events from today's news. He has a means of making the thrill last from beginning sentence to ending sentence. The only thing I do not like about his work, is that he often refers to news as provided by Fox News; after years of switching from newscast to newscast, I refer to Fox News as Faux News; could this be the only fiction that Thor has added to his book?"

— Linda (4 out of 5 stars)

Quotes

  • “Clancy fans will love this. Brad Thor has packed this riveting and timely thriller with enough military technology, CIA intrigue, and exotic settings to kidnap even the most demanding readers, deprive them of sleep, and convert them into instant devotees.” 

    — Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code
  • “If Thor’s second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair…the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed.” 

    — Publishers Weekly
  • “A blood-soaked sequel to the presidential-kidnapping debut that so arrested critics…Thor leaves little to the imagination when it comes to the cut and thrust of terrorist-busting; the action is relentless and gory, the pacing sublime, as is the authenticity of everything from weaponry to locales.” 

    — Ottowa Citizen

    " See previous Thor reviews. This early Thor effort is really good but his efforts diminish over time. "

    " I know it's not fair to say about a book of this type, but it REALLY strains all credulity. The only bright spot is the baddies are Muslims, but the story at the heart of it is basically cheesy melodrama. I hear this author gets better later on, so I'm sticking with the series but only barely. When I have time, I might go back and detail all of my problems with the book and the storyline. The only reason it gets 3 stars is because of entertainment value, which is still higher than the annoyance factor, but not by much. "

    " it was a good book but i was able to put it down while reading and not feel the need to hurry back to it which is my definition of what makes a 5 star book. the characters were strong and believeable and there were several "twist and turns" that came as a surprise. want to get started on his next book to see if it is any better. need to go back and read the "lions of lucerne" at some time.

    " If "24" were made into a book, they'd probably get Thor to write it. Don't know if that's a recommendation or a condemnation, take it as you will. Some strong language that seems unnecessary and done more for the "this character is feeling strong emotions" effect. "

    " This was an entertaining read, but is the type of book I'm trying to read less of since I didn't really learn anything from it. It's better than watching an action movie or show on TV, but about the same level of depth as some TV shows. "
