"Feels like the TV show 24 on the page." (The Associated Press)
Includes an extended behind-the-scenes conversation with author Brad Thor and narrator Armand Schultz.
Number-one New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor presents his greatest thriller ever—an action-packed literary tour de force!
Hidden deep within one of the world's most powerful organizations is a secret committee with a devastating agenda. Its members are afforded incredible protections—considered elites, untouchables.
But when four seconds of video is captured halfway around the world and anonymously transmitted to DC, covert wheels are set in motion, and counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath is tapped to undertake the deadliest assignment of his career.
What begins as a favor will evolve into a globe-spanning drama of highly personal stakes played out against a backdrop of stunning international intrigue, duplicitous political gamesmanship, and the darkest, most clandestine fears of the espionage world.
With razor-sharp plotting, richly rendered characters, and heart-stopping surprises on every page, Thor isn't just at the top of his game—he owns the entire genre.

Good...but cliché packed
This kept me engaged...BUT...the writing was a little cliche heavy and I just couldn't get past the scene in the Congo with the ridiculous Decker-sexy-lingerie-hazmat-suit-jungle-dead-people-outbreak-oh-let's-get-naked-in-makeshift-shower scene. Honestly...that took gratuitous naked lady seduction scenes to a new level of absurdity. I laughed out loud.

Huge Drop Off
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
1 - Without spoiling it, story jumps around a bit too much and plot goes well beyond other books in terms of the bad guy and what he has in store for the world. This one jumps the shark for sure. I know every book cant be about stopping the "religion of peace," but this one is truly out there. While possible, far too many things need to line up.
2 - While I enjoy, author's comments at the end, 30 minutes is far too much when you are trying to gauge how much of the book you have left.
What could Brad Thor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Stop reading Ted Bell who jumped the shark three books ago.
Any additional comments?
Armand as good as it gets for all voices/characters. I just wish it was better material.
