Number-one New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor delivers his most frightening and pulse-pounding thriller ever! After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There’s just one problem - no one knows if she can be trusted. But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion. With the United States facing an imminent and devastating attack, America's new president must turn to covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath to help carry out two of the most dangerous operations in the country’s history. Code-named "Gold Dust" and "Blackbird", they are shrouded in absolute secrecy as either of them, if discovered, will constitute an act of war.
I love Brad Thor. Every one of his novels are thrilling. Once I start listening to his audio books I am riveted. I was very surprised and disappointed that George Guidall is not narrating this one. George is the best narrator out there. He literally “becomes” the characters in the story. Armand Schultz is stiff and boring. I sincerely hope Guidall will be back next time.
Act of War
I have read three books by Thor. This one was completed in a matter of hours. Well written, fast pace and an easy read. Loved it from beginning to end. Buy it!
Decent but not his best.
I love Thor but his plots are a bit hard to believe. I know he's a part of red cell and is simply putting some of those ideas to paper but they're a bit much at times. Still a good edge of your seat thriller though worth a listen.
