Description

From #1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 Publishers Weekly bestselling author, Brad Thor, comes Blowback.

Scot Harvath’s counterterrorism career has just crashed and burned—thanks in part to a ruthless senator with her sights set on the White House. But when the war on terror takes a chilling turn, the president has no choice but to secretly bring Harvath back inside. Deep beneath an Alpine glacier, an ancient weapon designed to decimate the Roman Empire has been unearthed—and a shadowy organization intends to use it for America’s downfall. Racing across Europe, Harvath must secure the ultimate instrument of destruction before it brings the United States and the rest of the world to their knees.

    Loved the story, it never had me bored and always kept me interested as it was filled with tons of action and puzzles. The twist was pretty good as well, but I felt the story was longer than it needed to be. Took too long for them to figure out the problem when I felt it was pretty straightforward as to what needed to happen and where they needed to go. Did not need to be 600 pages, but the story was interesting and rock solid. Nice one Mr. Thor!

    Can't say that I agree with Hollywood about certain party strengths. However, he does have the right to his opinions. And I support his right to voice them. After all he is from la la land. Thor is De Mill, and Childs second coming. A great read. Any of his novels. Do yourself a favor and read them in order.

    Scot Harvath is a terrific character, who must have more than nine lives. He's used several in blowback! I can't put these books down! I have to keep reading and see if Scot makes it out of each dilemma or who he stomps the living daylights out of this time. Headed for the next book in the series. Thanks Brad Thor!!

    Ignoring the ridiculous comments about Bush and Obama, Thor does a great job continuing a character and illustrating the difficulties of serving one's country. Can't wait for Black List to arrive, as well as the education of Hollywood in how long it takes to build credible intel...and then pulling the proverbial trigger after which taking credit instead for it all. Facts are facts right?

    Pretty good action, run of the mill for this genre. However, this writer has it backwards as far as which party is stronger in the war on terrorism. While Bush slept thru his pre 9-11 intel briefings and refused a request for Rangers that might have gotten Bin Laden at Tora Bora, the current president has acted without hesitation and terminated Bin Laden as well as many other terrorist leaders.Perception is sometimes reality, but facts are always facts. Just sayin'.
