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)

Couldn't stop listening!

I have listened to the whole Scott Harvath series and even though this was officially the second book of the series, they finally made it in the unabridged format. This is right on par with the rest of the series as far as the action, intrigue and all around fun listening. I found myself cheering and laughing out loud throughout this book. It is good to get some of the back stories filled in and being made aware of characters that follow in the series. If you want to listen to a great story that will keep you riveted, GET THIS AUDIOBOOK!

Incredulous Fantasy

What disappointed you about Path of the Assassin?

The outrageous and totally unbelievable feats of valor performed by Meg, an advertising exec who had not fired a pistol since childhood. She disarmed a dangerous terrorist during the hijacking of a commercial airliner on which she was a passenger, picked up an AK47 then proceeded to kill several other hijackers stretched credulity beyond fantasy. This, however, paled compared to her taking a 2 week crash course in Black Ops then directing a CIA Black Ops raid against terrorists in Libya in an effort to get the main bad guy. Thor's novels typically contain a grain of reality but this missed the mark by a mile and was very disappointing.

Would you ever listen to anything by Brad Thor again?
