In a daring and chilling debut, Brad Thor draws us into a sinister labyrinth of political intrigue and international terrorism, serving up an explosive cocktail of unrelenting action as one man is pushed to the edge.

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 puts his own life in 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.

Framed for murder and on the run, Harvath takes his own brand of justice to the towering mountains of Switzerland, where he finds an improbable ally in the beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney’s Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus—and enter the den of the most notorious team of professional killers the world has ever known.

    " I really liked this book. I haven't read anything else by him, but I will now. I like the main character Scot and can't wait to see what's in store for him in his next mission. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Hearnsberger-thomas | 2/17/2014

    " Took a while to get going, but it was a good book. Will definitely try the next in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 2/13/2014

    " I read this over a 2 week trip and it kept my interest the whole way through. At first i was worried it was another Vince Flynn type of book, but Thor's style is different and the story peaked my interest to find out what happened. Enjoyed the betrayal twist and the finger pointing and really appreciated the well deserved apologies at the end. Will definitely read more of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 2/5/2014

    " Kind of like Vince Flynn meets the Travel Channel. Fun story with lots of descriptive language about the scenes of the book. I'll look for more of his stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlos | 2/3/2014

    " This is the first book of the series an a good one. Now I know what am I going to read from now on now that Robert Ludlum has passed away. Thor has written a decent thriller that kept me reading at fast pace. Bullets fly and everyone is under the shroud of a conspiracy. Long live to Kiefer Sutherland's 24! So If You are in need for a little action in your life this is the book to get. Much, much better than Cussler. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Franklin | 1/28/2014

    " Enjoyable 'suspense thriller' by Brad Thor. James Patterson style (easy read) but story has more substance. I love these CIA / FBI / Mossad 'treats' especially after reading about politics or the economy. Story drags towards the end however. "

    " Scot Harvath series........lots of Bondesque, dodging bullets, superhuman feats of daring, with a beautiful woman in there somewhere. Thor writes with credibility "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Xxplorer | 10/7/2013

    " I find it hard to read a book where the supposed hero keeps overlooking facts. Over and over again he states how he should have remembered this or done that. Enough was enough.... couldnt finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri faulk | 7/5/2013

    " 1st Brad Thor I've. Read. Was real excited hoping for something similar to Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp or Baldacci's Stone. I'm ready for book two. Scott with Pres' daughter skiing/ kidnapping. Switzerland. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 5/12/2013

    " 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. "

    " Jury is still out. I do like thrillers but sometimes the author's politics gets in the way. I am on the second book. The girl friend count so far is one per book. I wonder how that continues... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Gilberts | 2/17/2013

    " Hmmm. Started really well. Compelling characters. Good story. Then what the...was he late for school and needed to wrap the story up in 15 minutes? I checked my iPod twice to make sure I downloaded the whole book. Yep I did. I want to be encouraging. Great potential - disappointing finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 1/31/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 11/1/2012

    " The second Brad Thor book I've picked up and The Lions of Lucerne didn't disappoint. Fast-paced action follows the main character Harvath through an interesting, if a bit far-fetched, plot. Not a lot of twists in this novel but it's a fun sprint from beginning to end. "
