On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the unthinkable has just become a nightmarish reality; thirty Secret Service agents have been viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States kidnapped by one of the most lethal terrorist organizations in the Middle East -- the Fatah Revolutionary Council. But surviving agent and ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath doesn't believe the Fatah Revolutionary Council is responsible for the attack. Driven by his professional code of duty and honor, Harvath creates his own rules to get some answers. But his search for the truth raises the blood pressure of his superiors...and casts his own life in mortal jeopardy. The deadly machinations have been set in motion by a shadowy coalition, comprising some of the highest-ranking officials in government and business -- men who operate above the law, men who realize the threat Harvath poses to their hidden agenda...men who will do anything to stop him.

    " Not as good as vince flynn-a little unbelievable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Zanetti | 1/28/2014

    " A page turner. Great terrorist espionage book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 1/26/2014

    " Another great author of the action/adventure book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tree | 1/24/2014

    " Good, solid read. The main character, Scot Harvath, is not completely one-dimensional, but I'd like to know more about him before I dig deeper into another one of these books. Great descriptions and scenery though - it's part tour guide, part action/adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig Broadbent | 1/19/2014

    " Didn't enjoy this book at all. First half was not too bad but really couldn't get behind the main character who seems like a bit of a jerk. He got worse in the second half where it seemed all the females were only good for crying in Scott's arms while he trotted out cliche macho lines. Almost gave up around chapter 30 but read to the end and didn't think it got any better. Won't be reading books 2 or 3. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don Christensen | 1/18/2014

    " Not bad ... perhaps a 7 out of 10. First book of Brad Thor's I've read, might be my last. Will try either Daniel Silva or John Sanford next, in hopes of finding an author I really enjoy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/11/2014

    " This was a great thriller involving the kidnapping of the president and many govn't leaks. The hero was extremely likable and I couldn't put the book down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 1/9/2014

    " Not a bad read, except for the author's annoying compulsion to explain even the most mundane reference. He must think his reader is inordinately ignorant. Please, I know what Henry VIII was famous for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Cramer | 1/4/2014

    " This book was great. First of a series of ten. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 12/24/2013

    " Very nice change of pace. A mixture of James Rollins with some historical information and Jason Bourne. Really liked the characters and thought the story was awesome. I couldn't put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zach Lorber | 12/20/2013

    " This is the first book in Brad Thor;s "Scot Harvath" series, and is a good introduction to him. The story was a bot more complicated than needed, with superfluous problems arising, but in the end, it was a story that kept me interested from beginning to end. "
