Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling 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.

It only took me 2 days to finish this book, I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival and then before I know it I am finished and know I will have to wait for another. It is so hard, when you really enjoy a book and its writer, but if the process was rushed I am not so sure I would enjoy it so much~!

Would you try another book from Brad Thor and/or Armand Schultz?

Brad Thor? Probably... I've been fairly dissatisfied with the last few books he's published. They seem to be getting worse. The perfectly ideal character, without any flaws whatsoever... is getting old to say the least. The story is interesting in and of itself, but the execution of such story is lacking. The lackluster performance of Armand Schultz may not have helped the situation either. I've both read and listened to Brad Thor novels. I cannot put my finger on it, but I did not like Armand Shultz's narration whatsoever. I am not sure if I already have my own idea of what Scot Harvath should sound like, and Armand does not jive with my imagination, or if he really really is just a boring narrator. Overall: If you have some time to burn (like I do) and have a few spare credits, you may as well get the book if you feel the need to keep up with the series and hate leaving old friends behind (but don't count on feeling totally satisfied).

Would you ever listen to anything by Brad Thor again?

Most likely listen/read... Although more likely read, I seem to get a little more out of a book I actually read, which may be part of my dissatisfaction with this novel.

What three words best describe Armand Schultz’s performance?

Bored to death.

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

The ideas in the book were intriguing. While the scenario seems far fetched in all honesty, it still makes you wonder what all really is possible. The book didn't really elicit a strong feeling/reaction, but it does make you think about what actually goes on in the world around us that we are ignorant of, or even choose to ignore.

Any additional comments?

So you have an idea of what thrillers I do actually like, as a gauge for my review and if it applies to you- I read all the new Jack Reacher novels within the first 24 (or less) hours of their release. One of my favorite characters is Nelson DeMille's John Corey. And to top it off, I like 95% of what David Baldacci writes, although lately I get the feeling that he is stretching himself a little too thin, and not taking the proper amount of time to compose his novels.
