Brad Thor has weaved another great thriller. His stories always seem to be a year or two ahead of international headlines.
Brad Thor writes FIRST rate thrillers that are very timely in their politics. Details are authentic, and the writing is superb.
Brad Thor is a second (third?) rate Robert Ludlum/Dan Brown clone. Formulaic thrillers with fetishistic detailed descriptions of weapons and ammunition, two-dimensional, impossibly superhuman characters and convenient plot twists. Perhaps his worst faults are his strident focus on white Protestant American militaristic values, tiresome repetition of the infallibility of the USA, unquestioning belief that the US is the most altruistic nation on earth with the sole goal of protecting the world from evil, and that evil is defined as anything he considers un-American. In this book, that means anything 'Muslim' or 'Islam'. To give you an indication of Thor's ideology, he gushingly acknowledges Glenn Beck as a hero. No more need be said. Give this a pass if you want an intelligent thriller with real-world political insight.
I'm surprised the other reviewers rated this Thor novel so highly. Even though I've read many of his other books and rated them highly, I thought this one was disappointing. Mostly, my disappointment came from a very unsatisfying ending to the book. I would skip this one and read one of Thor's other Scot Havath novels. I do have admit that his thanks to Glen Beck at the end of the book didn't help any, but even before that, I thought the ending was lame.
