Bestseller Thor's latest thrill-ride begins in anguish. Scot Harvath, navy SEAL turned Homeland Security superagent, sits at the bedside of girlfriend Tracy Hastings, who's in a deep coma after being gravely wounded at the end of Takedown. Meanwhile, five terrorists have been released from Guantánamo Bay as part of a secret hostage deal forced upon U.S. president Jack Rutledge. When one of the terrorists starts targeting Scot's friends and family, Scot discovers that the president won't allow the assassin to be hunted down. Soon enough, Scot is on the run from his own government and in pursuit of the killer. Many characters make appearances from earlier books, in particular Scot's ongoing nemesis, the fascinating, intelligence-gathering expert known as the Troll. It's a long, violent, shoot-'em-up, blow-'em-up pulse-pounder that will leave Thor's fans cheering and begging for more. (Aug.)

The President's advisors missed another slammed dunk when they lose sight of the fearsome five. Just under six months later, an assassin shoots Homeland Security agent Scot Harvath's girlfriend Tracy Hastings, leaving her comatose and Agent Harvath is furious as isotopic blood is found at the crime scene. Soon afterward, locusts attack his mother and some friends of Harvath murdered. It all sounds like something from Moses - the movie and biblical time. That is exactly what the mastermind behind targeting Harvath's loved ones and friends intend to portray. Agent Harvath receives instructions to stay out of the investigation by the President, but goes Rogue - bent on revenge.
The Story incorporates some friends form previous novels and allows the reader an entertaining, plausible story line in terrorism.
I am really enjoying Brad Thor. Similar enthusiasm is shared with Vince Flynn and W.E.B. Griffin
