Feel like reading a James Bond made in USA. Lot of action and unexpected ending. when you start reading you need to get to the end, no different than a movie

Secret Service Agent Scott Harvath is doing his job when he risks his life to keep President Rutledge safe. With an increase in terrorism at alarming levels from multiple sides in the Mideast confrontation and a recent kidnapping attempt of Rutledge, Scott has job security. His current assignment is to eliminate those who assaulted the president but escaped, though Scott insured their mission failed.
With synagogues and mosques exploding, the CIA believes the trademark evidence points to the 1980s deadliest assassin Abdul Nidal who supposedly died during that decade. Scott assumes the report of Abdul's expiration is true especially when the CIA points towards the son of the terrorist, Hashim. However, the Agency claims no pictures or description exists. One American Meg Cassidy has seen and survived Hashim's deadly destruction. Desperate Scott drafts the civilian to help him bring down the world's deadliest terrorist, but will soon learn there is more to this dangerous mess than the CIA, Mossad, and the American Home security agency has told him. That lack of information could cost Scott, Meg, and their allies their lives.
No description seems strange with a survivor witness, but fans of adrenaline highs will not notice. Action, action, action, and more action as that fails to describe fractionally the global events of this non stop thriller that seems so pertinent with recent events starting with 9/11 and still current with the precedent setting Saddam scenario. Scott retains his hero mantle first earned in the exciting LIONS OF LUCERNE, but the tale of the tape is ACTION as PATH OF THE ASSASSIN is a one sitting thriller.

The summary is quoted from
"Fresh from rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Having assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America, Harvath and his CIA-led team must reach Nidal before it's too late. One problem remains - they have no idea what the man looks like..."
I give this a five star rating because it was outstanding escapist fiction. The pace is relentless. You'll visit Bern, Chicago, Cairo, Jerusalem, The island of Capri, and Rome, along with a couple other spots. And yes its main focus is the dispute between the Israeli's and the Palestinians. What a surprise there, huh?
By the way, when two jumpers use one parachute it's called tandem jumping. A good way for beginners to get their first jump in.

Scot Harvath, ex-navy SEAL and current Secret Service agent, is seeking the head of a terrorist organization, the one responsible for the kidnapping of the President in the last book. He finds himself up against Hashim Nidal, son of the dead terrorist Abu Nidal. The son, apparently a highly skilled operative and assassin, is involved in a plot to threaten both Israel and the US. It is up to Scot to follow, capture and kill this terrorist before he can bring his plan into reality. The chase takes him all over the world.
Brad Thor in his second endeavor shows he has what it takes to write the penultimate international thriller. The military trained larger than life hero, a love interest, the history of the free world at stake, exotic settings well described, and the latest military gadgets. It is all great fun. This is a quick easy read and one that doesn't require too many brain cells. It is perfect for the upcoming summer months.

I picked up Thor's first book The Lions of Lucerne this summer. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it much. It sounded a lot like a Tom Clancy novel, and he's not one of my favorite authors. I was very surprised when I finished the book in about three days. I've been waiting for Path Of The Assain every since. I picked it up on the first day it was available. It petty much picks up right where the Lions left off. Secret Service Agent Scot Harvath is tracking down the rest of the terrorists responsible for kidnapping the president in the first novel.
I think the characters are what makes the book so good. Thor has created a very real bunch. Harvath maybe larger than life, but at the same time he is very real.
Thor's writing is excellant and the pace of the book is so fast, it just flies. I was hooke from the first page. It does drag a bit in the middle, but over all this is one great read!
I'm already waiting for Brad Thor's next book.

If you need pure escape into super spy land with plenty of near escapes, explosions and a hero who knows all and can do no wrong, this isn't a bad pick up for afternoon read.
Mister Thor has done his research regarding the topic (although, I have some trouble believing Abu Nidal had a son no one knew about). He has a firm grasp on units and organization. However, this was a novel that reminded me of those martial arts films where people perform impossible leaps and jumps. His hero Scot Harvath seems capable of any feat - he has no weaknesses - and that isn't real.
When the main character stretches believability past the breaking point, then the entire story suffers. This would have been a better book if the hero was a little more human like the rest of us mortals.

Though the book moves at a pretty good clip, that's about all I can say that's positive about it. It was poorly written(probably a first draught. And the only one who seemed to know what he was doing in this whole story was the Hero-Secret Service Agent Scott Harvath. Everyone else is made out to look like total incompetents. The Author's ego shines through on this one.
First Scott sites the villain in this story in Macau, during an arrest gone bad, as well as on three later occasions, but he needs a PR person who has no military experience, who foiled a hijacking while he was trying to rape her, to ID the bad guy-son of Abu Nidal. Then he trains her to become this superAgent in two weeks time at a secret military training camp?
I don't buy it...
