Act of War

Scot Harvath - A Thriller

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


#1 New York Times bestselling 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.

Act of War

Thor has written a lot better books, I have read them all.

Act of War

China has finally decided to collect on the huge national debt owed it by the United States...but it won't be a monetary repayment they're after but rather the entire country. In a half-clever plot born of the TV show "Revolution", China plans on defeating the entire United States in one fell swoop.

While at times reeking of the author's own über right-wing philosophies (p. 185), the book does move along at a breakneck pace and does beg for a day-long reading.

My only real criticism of the book is the portion devoted to North Korea which turned out to be merely page-filling and serving no useful purpose to the overall plot or ending.

If you're a fan of Mr Thor's books, as I am, you'll likely be a little bit letdown by the unreality of the ending and the swiftness of the last 50 pages which make no real sense. I hope his next offering is done with a little more concern for his audience.

Act of War

First let me say Brad thor is one of my favorite authors. I've read all of his books. I can only give this a 3 star rating. In this and his last book he fills up too much space with his conservative Obama foreign policy bashing beliefs. I totally agree with his opinions about that but using it as a substitute for good writing is disappointing. The ending is not satisfying here, everyting wraps up in a few pages with only a few sentences to explain some plot issues. I think Brad needs to spend more time writing and less time on television.
