Finally - a book that has me wanting to read more in this series! This book was fairly tightly written with tons of action and lots of suspense. I couldn't put it down. It seems like the author has finally gotten past blaming Muslim terrorists and (temporarily, at least) decided to stay off his soapbox about everything that is wrong with our government. Yeah, the bad guys in this case have figured out how to get inside of the government and had every intention of bringing it down, but at least the government itself wasn't the problem. Scot Harvath didn't torture as many people as he usually does. The torture was not as terrible and he didn't seem to enjoy it as much either. I would actually put this book up with some of Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum's better works - and, after the last couple of clunkers, I wasn't sure I was ever going to be able to say that about a Brad Thor book. Good work! Keep it up!

Picked up this book by accident. Read it in two days. EXCELLENT!!! Just added six more to my ( for later) shelf. Starting with " The Last Patriot" which I will pick up today.

An excellent novel that is hard to put down. Thor does a great job of moving the plot along and having good twists and turns along the way. Another excellent Scot Harvath "save the world" book. You'll enjoy it! I give it an A for a grade.

I always enjoy Brad Thor's books and enjoyed this one but his premise is a little paranoid, even for me.

After reading this book I immediately started researching info supplied by Thor. His accuracy regarding government agencies and their agenda's are getting very scary!

While not as good as some of his others, the book is an enjoyable read.

Excellent book where Harvath is targeted for death by ATS, a US defence company
