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: 30 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. 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.
Hooked after 1st discovering "Hidden Order"
Brad Thor established himself right from the beginning with this book. I discovered Brad Thor after first listening to Hidden Order, and was so taken that I have decided to listen to his other books. At 'macenion's review above - I was going to say that maybe you're just too smart for this type of writing - but then I observed your sentence structure and spelling errors. Apparently you're simply in the minority that it doesn't appeal to - but it is by no means 'thin'.
This book had me hooked within 5 minutes of listening and kept me stuck until I finished. Brad Thor writes such an amazing book that I have listened to all of them in the last year
Not Bad But Read it Instead
Pretty good book, but I recommend reading it. The narrator really ruins it.
