Good thriller that has stood the test of time. Unlikely and unrealistic set of events, but a decent book nonetheless. Almost gave up after first 100 pages, but it was worth staying with it. Author is another James Patterson. ( )

This is my first Brad Thor book. I liked it and may read another of his in the future. I found it a little predictable and I imagine some non American readers will bristle at the "American hero" aspect but what would you expect? Anyway, it was a nice enough read.

Really enjoyed it. I started with book #14 which was very good then book #15. Figured I really like Scot Harvath series I want to start from the beginning. I'm glad I did. ( )

This was a very generic thriller, and frankly, I think you can tell its his first book. The plot moves along pretty well but the dialogue and characterizations is just choppy. I should also flag that there's some casual bias against Middle Eastern cultures in a couple places of this book that definitely feels abrasive. ( )

After listening to about 20 minutes of this book, it seemed to me that all I had heard was about upcoming sex and violence, past and to come. I had no notion of what the several characters mentioned were like except that they were sexy or smart and/or willing to do whatever it took to get what they wanted. This just isn't my kind of book, so I dumped it.
