He has done it again. Scot Harvath is once again thrust into action that at times seems far too real. This is a great read and it holds to the same high standards of Brad Thor action/thrillers. ( )

Meaning no disrespect, but this is politico-patriot-porn for HS-level adult readers.
It reads like the transcript of a direct-to-video movie with an embedded arms catalog.
I understand the genre is very popular, but I like a bit more subtlety in my mayhem; and, although I support the unabashed American patriotism, I don't subscribe to the radical whatever-we-do-is-right-cause-we're-the-good-guys stance of Harvath and his associates.
However, I'm reluctant to paint all of the plot as unfounded fiction anymore; had I read it in 2013 maybe so, but after the recent reveals on the machinations of the CIA, DOJ, FBI, et al. -- not so much. What seems too incredible to credit apparently is business as usual.
One particular point of bad tradecraft, aside from the genre-typical last-minute-saves and odd coincidences: there is no plausible scenario in which Sal would have been on the Fed's private plane himself to receive the souvenier toy, nor would a legitimate passenger have any reason to give him one; I suppose Durkin is assumed, but he would not bother with them. However, salting the plot with the attendant's phone number was a good gad, thought I doubt she would have given away private info to a one-meeting stud-muffin. ( )

This is a great author, who really has terrific plots. Mr. Thor is a new favorite. ( )

Some say Thor is the best writer in America. I dunno this book is surely a good one. ( )
