Navy SEAL turned covert operative Scot Harvath is called to action once again in Brad Thor's hottest political thriller yet. Buried within the black ops budgets of the Department of Defense, a new spy agency has been created. Unfettered by the oversight of self-serving politicians, it reports only to a secret panel of military insiders. Its job is to target Americas enemies - both foreign and domestic - under a charter of three simple words: Find, Fix, and Finish. Recruited as a field operative, Scot Harvath has just returned from his first assignment abroad when a bombing in Rome kills a group of American college students. The evidence points to a dangerous colleague from Harvath's past and a plan for further attacks on an unimaginable scale. Harvath is tasked with leveraging his relationship to lure the man out of hiding and kill him on the spot. But what if it is the wrong man? Simultaneously, a young woman is struck by a taxi in a hit-and-run in Chicago. With only two intoxicated witnesses and over 5,000 cabs in the city, the Chicago Police have given up on their investigation. But when the family's attorney digs deeper, he will uncover a shocking connection to the bombing in Rome and the perpetrator's plans for America. As the story rockets to its conclusion, the plots intersect in a race to prevent one of the most audacious and unthinkable acts of war in the history of mankind.
This was may first Brad Thor and will definitly be reading his other books. What if muslim terrorists were used as puppets to set in motion a plan to destroy freedom in this great country? That is question this book asks and it is told in a way that keeps you glued to it from start to finish. The guy narrorating is also one of the best I've heard.
I disagree with others; I have been following Harvath from the beginning. Would you not develop a method of dealing with all it all, finding ways to not just walk away or find yourself in a padded room? Thor has done what many have not been able, continue to develop a characters relationships, and provide yet another challenge. I welcome even more from Harvath and Thor.
