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.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bernard Doddema Jr | 12/30/2013

    " I liked the description of Afghan life. That was an eye opener. For some reason, this novel was missing something...I don't know what...but it wasn't quite the same as the other books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda C | 12/7/2013

    " He is a good author, but it seems like many of his books have the same backdrop and similar storylines. I'm hoping to see something different from his next release. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve Strong | 11/7/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dave | 10/14/2013

    " After waiting for the release of Brad Thor's new book to complete the Scott Harvath series, I found myself very disappointed. Brads first novels are the best and I don't see him progressing in his writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 9/24/2013

    " A very good action thriller novel. I had not previously read any work by Brad Thor so I was impressed by this story. My son (US Marine) was preparing to deploy to Afghanistan so for me, it held special significance to gain more insight into the people, geography and culture. "

    " Was overall quite solid, but lacking in the 24-style action the series is known for. Also, the last 50 pages were way too much of a blur, like he was rushing to meet a set page count or something. I need to go back and check out the older ones "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ms Athos | 1/7/2013

    " I've read all his Scot Harvath books. This is definitely not among the best. Should consider losing Tracy, Harvath's GF. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian | 8/2/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kgoppel | 5/3/2011

    " Usually I really enjoy Brad Thor's tales of agent Scott Harvath, but this one was not my favorite. It was entertaining, but I felt like he started to develop some characters and then just left me hanging. Some of the sub-plots felt like filler instead of something that moved the story forward. "

    " Interesting insight into military and non-military in Afghanistan. Shows how the people are split. Yes, all with the background of a fictional kidnapping/ransom case. Extra twists come with the political fallout.

    Enjoy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 4/20/2011

    " I believe this is the 3rd Brad Thor I have read. I will read more. Very contemporary, very plausible storyline, very easy to see how this could actually occur in today's corrupt political climate. Billed as a "political thriller," it fits the bill! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindi | 4/6/2011

    " Not up to his other books.

    The sub-plot with the President was almost an aside and he wrapped it up almost as an after-thought. Disappointing. "

    " Always nice to have the good guys win. Lots of interesting geographic info about the war front. "
