Publisher's Summary

America’s worst nightmare has just become a brutal reality. The most unlikely terrorist enemy of all now holds a knife against the country’s throat. With both diplomatic and conventional military options swept from the table, the president calls upon Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath to disable a brilliantly orchestrated conspiracy intended to bring the United States to its knees.
Teamed with beautiful Russian Intelligence agent Alexandra Ivanova and a highly trained CIA paramilitary detachment, Harvath embarks on an adrenaline-fueled search that spans the world - and leads to a final, deadly showdown on American soil, with a lethal and sinister enemy from the past.
Take another thrill ride with Scot Harvath.

The “State Of The Union” was as thrilling as promised in the summary. If you enjoy action, “edge of your seat” suspense you won’t be disappointed! I began this book at bedtime and had to force myself, after 2 l/2 hours of listening, to turn it off. My attention was captured in the first hour. There were more than a half dozens enthralling parts in the book including torture, under water action, and ticking bombs. One thing that put it over the top for me was there wasn’t just one hero that saved millions of lives, there were several which lended the book more plausibility. After listening to this book, I will be even more patient with our airport security!

As always, George Gudell’s narration was stellar! Loray.

Poor narration

Only listened to a few chapters. The narration spoiled the whole thing. Love the series, so skipped a few books to get the original narrator
