Publisher's Summary

National bestselling author of The Lions of Lucerne
Brad Thor and his indomitable hero Scot Harvath are back, raising the stakes and taking on one of the world's deadliest terrorist organizations bent on stoking a global holy war of apocalyptic proportions.
After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America. Harvath and his CIA-led team must reach Nidal before it's too late. One problem remains - they have no idea what the man looks like.
Only one person can positively identify Harvath's quarry - Meg Cassidy, a beautiful hijacking survivor. Together, Scot and Meg must untangle a maddening web of global intrigue stretching across four continents. From Macau, Jerusalem, and Chicago, to Libya, Capri, and Rome, Harvath and Cassidy find themselves locked in a desperate race against time to sort the pieces of a deadly puzzle that will test not only their physical and mental limits, but also the growing bond they feel for each other.


What the Critics Say

"...[A] blood-soaked sequel to the presidential-kidnapping debut that so arrested critics....Thor leaves little to the imagination when it comes to the cut and thrust of terrorist-busting; the action is relentless and gory, the pacing sublime, as is the authenticity of everything from weaponry to locales." (Ottawa Citizen)
"If Thor's second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair....the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed." (Publishers Weekly)
"If Thor's second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair....the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed." (Dan Brown, New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code)

What disappointed you about Path of the Assassin?

Thor is sadly no Vince Flynn. It may be that the author took a while to develop his craft but having purchased his first two, I am not keen to listen to any more.(I gave the benefit of the doubt and purchased this one after listening to his first in the series.) I did not finish this book. The corny dialogue and far-fetched story were just too much -- criticism others have voiced and I should have listened too. I wondered if the narrator was to blame for some of it as well as the story's inability to hold my interest, but concluded it was primarily the writing. It seemed amateurish to me, and I am no literary maven. Details seemed thrown in just to impress, the story was unrealistic, dialogue predictable and I didn't find myself caring one iota about any character. Perhaps I am just too spoiled by the Mitch Rapp series written the talented, late Vince Flynn.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Does not measure up

The storyline is okay but the author uses so much corny language that you wonder what generation he is from.
