I have enjoyed all of Thor’s books. Looking forward to his next novel. When will it be out?
The Athena Project
By Block Islander..
Can't wait de the next one....! Every bit as good as Scott or Mitch Rapp
Fast and furious action with a great plot. Couldn't put it down!

I have read all of Brad Thor's novels and loved them...except this one! Ridiculous female dialogue, the plot had more holes in it than Bonnie and Clyde, and the endless female stereotypes were seemingly created in the hormonally-charged mind of an eleven year old boy.
The major problem beyond this clunker of a novel is that Thor has warned (I mean promised) us that there will be more Athena Project novels to come! This threat (I mean promise) has already come to fruition with the Athena Project Barbie Dolls showing up in his latest novel, Black List! Thankfully, Scott Harvath is the main character and Black List ends up being a page-turner.
Brad, sometimes you just have to cut your losses and admit you have made a mistake. You simply are incapable of writing about women without emphasizing the superficial. You don't want to become known as the Russ Meyer of spy novels, do you??? Hey, we all have our faults, but most people don't write an entire novel pointing them out. Stick with Scott Harvath and your legions of fans will stick with you!
OK but for TOO many pages of contrived female prattle
Basic plot, OK. But stuffing the book with pages of mindless contrived female prattle really took this book way down in my opinion. Not very good.
This has to be one of Thor's worst. He portrays his "all woman" covert team as ditsy and incapable of doing an assignment without stupid sexually themed dialogue. I think the author should stick to male operatives. At least he depicts them as professional and intelligent.
It was ok. Keeps your attention but parts were veeeeerry cliche and I felt I could have written half of it. Poor structure.

Worth the money!
What a disappointment. Shallow, trite......etc. etc. Let's hope he isn't going the way of Patterson; just churn 'em out to make a buck.
I really enjoyed this book. It is rare to find a thriller where women are the operatives involved in various dangerous situations. Situations that they have to use their wits to get out of alive. No big,strong man has to come to their rescue. I love it!
