Publisher's Summary

Brad Thor and his indomitable hero, Scot Harvath, are back, raising the stakes and taking on one of the world's deadliest terrorist organizations, one 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 attention 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

"Nonstop action." (AudioFile)
"With its infallible hero, fetching sidekick, and wicked bad guys, this international shoot 'em up sticks close to formula, but the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep listeners engrossed." (Publishers Weekly)

Decent, but nothing spectacular

Nothing here really stirs things up to the point of wanting to read another one...

Not bad... This is my only Thor novel so far. He was recommended to me and supposedly has others that are better. Apparently Lions of Lucerne and the one written right after, Path of the Assassin (can't recall the name).

Brad Thor and Suspense

What made the experience of listening to Path of the Assassin the most enjoyable?

The story is complex. A lot of effort has gone into to making all the pieces connect logically and then another layer is there for great entertainment value.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Obviously Scot Harvath.

Have you listened to any of Armand Schultz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Armand does a great array of voices. Easy to picture different people talking.

Any additional comments?

I am now a Brad Thor fan. His writing improved and now I am on a mission to hear all his books (as I ride the bus to work).
