National bestselling author of The Lions of Lucerne

Brad Thor and his indomitable hero Scot Harvath are back, raising the stakes and taking on one of the world's deadliest terrorist organizations bent on stoking a global holy war of apocalyptic proportions.

After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned 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 towards one man -- the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America. Harvath and his CIA-led team must reach Nidal before it's too late. One problem remains -- they have no idea what the man looks like.

Only one person can positively identify Harvath's quarry -- Meg Cassidy, a beautiful hijacking survivor. Together, Scot and Meg must untangle a maddening web of global intrigue stretching across four continents. From Macau, Jerusalem, and Chicago, to Libya, Capri, and Rome, Harvath and Cassidy find themselves locked in a desperate race against time to sort the pieces of a deadly puzzle that will test not only their physical and mental limits, but also the growing bond they feel for each other.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Eppenstein | 1/26/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Masha K. | 1/2/2014

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gayle | 12/3/2013

    " This book is a little too violent and R rated for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Munro | 11/30/2013

    " 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? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Ford | 11/24/2013

    " I loved the first book but this one fell a little short for me. Still highly entertaining and a good read. I am looking forward to the third book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 10/31/2013

    " Awesome, fast-paced action novel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmie Darkis | 10/26/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob Roy | 10/21/2013

    " Fun read filled with action and adventure mixed with a tad of love interest. The bad guys are really bad, but the good guys are even badder. An enjoyable escape fiction read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Browne | 10/5/2013

    " Better than the first book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nuclearoil | 7/13/2013

    " Not the best out of the Haravath books but is definetly in the same pace and excitment of the other books. They are definelty more enjoyable if you read them in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Millsaps | 7/11/2013

    " Very good second book from this author. I enjoy his writing style, and the author sounds knowledgeable about the background as well as the main storyline. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael Rose | 5/30/2013

    " Imagine a few episodes of 24. The main character, Scot Harvath is a lot like Jack Bauer. That pretty much sums it up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca Drury | 1/11/2013

    " Not a rehash of the 1st Scott Horvath novel. This is a fresh, new storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 8/21/2012

    " 1st exposure to this author...I will read more...very Vince Flynn-like "

    " Way better written than the first one. "

    " Another good action book by Brad Thor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 3/17/2012

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody | 12/22/2011

    " Loving this series. Looking forward to the next one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Curt | 12/18/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 10/24/2011

    " A fun fast paced read. Keeps you moving. "

    " Can't go wrong with an entertaining Brad Thor book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 8/12/2011

    " Much of this was a little to hard for me to believe. I want the main character to work on getting along with others! Scot, if you want your team members to cover your back, you need to try. Maybe when the main character matures... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 8/4/2011

    " I became a Brad Thor fan after listening to an audio version of Blacklist while on a road trip with my husband. The Scot Harvath series makes for an entertaining and quick action thriller. This is book 2 after Lions of Lucerne and I'm looking forward to reading book 3 next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ricardo | 7/28/2011

    " Major improvement over the first one. The authors ability to describe the setting is excellent but this time, it adds more locations and different scenarios, making the hero much more believable than in "The Lions of Lucerne." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeffrey | 6/18/2011

    " Audio Brain Candy:

    Ho Hum. Poorly developed plot, characters, and setting. Need I say more? Won't be reading more Thor books. Is that his real name, anyway? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stamps | 6/10/2011

    " This book was great. For an authors first book I thought it was an excellent thriller. The only regret I have is the a few character plots were tied up quite fast at the end. I'm ooking forward to reading more in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fredrick | 5/22/2011

    " The president disappears and Secret Service agent Scott Harvath attempts to recover him even though everyone believes that he is responsible for the death of over twenty fellow agents and the president's disappearanc. This is an action packed thriller that is hard to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 5/15/2011

    " So far, so good! Lots of action and strong characters--both good guys and bad guys! "
