A new administration and a new approach to dealing with America’s enemies have left covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath without a job. But when American doctor Julia Gallo is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the terms of her ransom leave the president with only one course of action.

In a dangerous assignment that the United States government will deny any knowledge of, Scot Harvath must secretly infiltrate Kabul’s notorious Policharki Prison and free the man the kidnappers demand as ransom: al-Qaeda mastermind, Mustafa Khan.

But when Harvath arrives, he quickly learns that there is more to the kidnapping than anyone dares to admit. And as the subterfuge is laid bare, Harvath must examine his own career of hunting down and killing terrorists, and ask himself if he has what it takes to help one of the world’s worst go free.

Brimming with the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines authenticity Brad Thor’s internationally bestselling novels are known for, The Apostle doubles down on the blockbuster success of The Last Patriot and reaffirms Thor’s status as the master of the political thriller.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Armand Schultz brings some much-needed humanity to this story of wisecracking tough guys and endless inventories of high-tech weaponry. He clearly delineates each member of a privately funded group of professionals sent in to extract the prisoner. Bringing the covert soldiers alive as individuals, Schultz gives them dimension and maintains listeners’ interest.”

    " Brad Thor continues to deliver stories that could be today's headlines. Its nice to read an author who understands the importance of our military and what needs to be done to protect this country. Thor provides a refreshing character in Scott Harvath who isn't concerned about being politically correct. Strap your boots on and enjoy the read. "

    " Quick read. As usual Brad Thor keeps the story interesting and moves it along. An entertaining read, worthy of anyone's "beach books". "

    " whatever the man writes--I love Brad Thor and Vince Flynn are favourites! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffrey Lawson | 1/31/2014

    " Listened to this one while painting shutters. Fun read if you like guns, action, and taking out terroists.That is really all this has to offer, but is does the trick while doing monotonous tasks. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jewell | 1/28/2014

    " I enjoy reading Brad Thor simply because I would really like to believe there ARE still many people who would work as hard as Scot Harvath to protect and defend us. Sadly, when I finish the book, I crash back into reality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 1/20/2014

    " Another pretty good book by Brad Thor. Scott Horvath again overcomes the odds to beat the bad guys! Kind of like all the good books! :-D It was pretty well written and I liked the flow and pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 11/18/2013

    " Good listening and particularly interesting in that I listened to it while reading Stones into Schools. Beginning to understand the tribal and societal system in Afghanistan little by little. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 11/15/2013

    " Not very well researched. Some gaps in the details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mylinda | 11/10/2013

    " I thought he went a little overboard on the gorry descriptions in this book. I liked it better before. It was a good story though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Schulman | 11/9/2013

    " I'm not sure why I enjoy this series of books, perhaps it is all of the elements - spies, conspiracies, violence, blackmail, story within a story. It is totally believable and very current as it is set in Afghanistan and refers to much of what is going on with the Taliban and al-qaida. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tulsi | 11/9/2013

    " 2nd read; ending is little too hurried "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keith | 12/20/2012

    " Never really got into this book. The characters were not very appealing to me and the story just drug on and on. The action scenes had a few moments of excitement, but overall I just felt like the whole thing was a waste of time. Sorry Thor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce | 12/5/2012

    " Once again, Brad Thor writes a great thriller with an interesting plot. If you love Thor and his Scott Harvath series, then you won't want to miss this one. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dee Haddrill | 11/1/2012

    " Another great Scot Harvath thriller. I'm hoping Elise Campbell makes another appearance soon and I'm thinking she might be a new girlfriend for Scot, as Tracy Hastings seems to be making an exit. Lots of action, humour and intrigue; it was a great book. "

    " A rich woman's daughter is kidnapped and must be exchanged for a terrorist held by Afghanistan. Scott Horvath has to go in and kidnap the terrorist to make the exchange happen. Good story, action and outcome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 8/3/2012

    " Think about it before buying the next new one. Kind of anticlimax at the end. You keep waiting for the big ending which doesn't happen. It leaves a lot of questions unanswered I think. "
