This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author, Brad Thor, comes Foreign Agent, “the best thriller of the year…an exciting and entertaining read” (The Washington Times).
Terrorism in Europe has spun out of control. The United States has decided on a dramatic response. Now, the CIA needs a very special kind of operative.
Scot Harvath has exactly the skills the CIA is looking for. He’s a former US Navy SEAL with extensive experience in espionage. Working for a private intelligence company, he will provide the CIA, and more important, the President, with absolute deniability.
But deep within the Russian Caucasus, Moscow also has its own special kind of operative. When a clandestine American operations team is ambushed near Syria, all signs point toward a dangerous informant in Brussels.
As the attacks mount, and terror is brought to the very doorstep of the White House, Harvath finds himself in the race of his life. From Vienna, Brussels, and Berlin, to Malta, Jordan, and Syria—he will push himself beyond the edge in order to confront one of the greatest evils the world has ever known.
Filled with action, intrigue, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, Foreign Agent is a nonstop thrill ride that reaffirms Thor’s position as the “master of thrillers.”
The sample download lead me to believe Brad was back to the level of his early books. And, while there were those moments, segments seemed to be stretched and phrasing repeated. Brad Thor has a great style as proven by past performance. Yet, whether it is contractual agreements-- to churn out books on a deadline or a consortium plugging in pieces of the mosaic...there were time I thought, who wrote this...this is not his style.
I did find a number of "incidents" within the story line very current and even quite plausible. I enjoyed the book, but was waiting for the great writing of the past. And, while kind to mentioned the multitude of people that were involved in this book... Why not do the heavy work yourself. I don't recall Shakespeare devoting pages to his sources, publisher, editors and merchandisers.
What a great read, I couldn't put it down. Brad does it again. Can't wait for the next book.
Fantastic read. Brad at his best!!!
