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, Secret Service agent and former Navy SEAL 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 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, the beautiful survivor of a hijacking. 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, New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code

  • “If Thor’s second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair. This follow-up to The Lions of Lucerne is loaded with explosions, gunfights, car chases, and hairbreadth escapes…The story is one bloody episode after another, with a touch of romance and colorful turf battles between the CIA, FBI, Delta Force, and Harvath himself…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.”

    Ottawa Citizen

    " Some of the verbal exchanges were a bit contrived, but the mystery was well thought-out and I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee Haddrill | 2/14/2014

    " Scot Harvath is back, and is as awesome as always. I love a man who can quip it up with a gun pressed to his head. Balls of steel!!!! Can't wait to read more of these fantastic books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jandblock | 2/12/2014

    " Good story. Unfortunately I have read them out of order and would have appreciated them more if the stories were sequential. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 2/11/2014

    " Three stars...I liked it. I'm thinking Brad Thor and I need some time apart after reading two of his books right in a row. Sometimes I just laugh with how perfect Scot Harvath is. Not only does he have rippling pectorals, but he is the top secret service agent in all of the United States. He's also the top agent in the CIA and the FBI and he's not even part of those organizations. I did really like the opening dilemma involving the plane and it kept me on the edge of my seat. Part of me liked Meg, but part of me didn't like how she would just seem to wilt whenever Harvath came around. I was definitely surprised by Nadal's counterpart, and I liked that turn of events. Overall, it was an ok book and I liked it. "
