Publisher's Summary

Every politician has a secret. And when the daughter of a politically connected family is kidnapped abroad, America's new president will agree to anything - even a deadly and ill-advised rescue plan - in order to keep his secret hidden. A new administration and a new approach to dealing with America's enemies have left covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath without a job. But when American doctor Julia Gallo is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the terms of her ransom leave the president with only one course of action. In a dangerous assignment that the United States government will deny any knowledge of, Scot Harvath must secretly infiltrate Kabul's notorious Policharki Prison and free the man the kidnappers demand as ransom -- al-Qaeda mastermind, Mustafa Khan.
But when Harvath arrives, he quickly learns that there is more to the kidnapping than anyone dares to admit. And as the subterfuge is laid bare, Harvath must examine his own career of hunting down and killing terrorists, and ask himself if he has what it takes to help one of the world's worst go free.
Brimming with the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines authenticity Brad Thor's internationally bestselling novels are known for, The Apostle doubles down on the blockbuster success of The Last Patriot and reaffirms Thor's status as the master of the political thriller.
Still breathing? Take another thrill ride with superagent Scot Harvath.

Worst yet in an otherwise good series

I really loved the other books he wrote, with Blowback probably being the best.

But this one really sucks. The Secret Service plot is just a side story, and not related to the main story.

The main story does not carry anything special, and Norseman is just a regular soldier in this one. It does not have the techno-thriller magic like the other ones. There are weak attempts with the lake of broken glass, but it looks like Brad could not find enough material or ideas to really use this tale, or he was lazy.

OK entertainment, but absolutely not the level of his other books.

Brad does it again!

Brad Thor grabs you and doesn't let go...once again! This is a fantastic story and Thor certainly does his research. This time he even shadowed a black ops team in Afghanistan to find out just how they would react in a similiar situation.

My only disappointment...I finished it too fast and will now have to wait another year for the next Harvath installment!
