User reviews about the book
The passage of time has made this book old and tired
Aside from the clunky writing, which is often meandering and repetitive, the author has a villain, who today, would be a hero. The book fails the test of time.
Why is James Standing a bad person? According to the book, it's because he wants to fight AIDS in Africa. It's also because he wants an alternative currency.
Well, we know what happened with AIDS because people like Thor refused to recognize the need to fight it. And today, of course, Bitcoins are the currency of choice for a lot of very important players in the business world.
The book is already badly dated.
And, Thor needs to learn that you never write MYRIAD OF. It's simply MYRIAD. This is because the use of myriad means the OF is understood.
Not a novel
By Derek Cooks
This isn't a book with a story line, it's a political manifesto. I have LOVED the Harvath series, but I had to stop reading this one a quarter through. No story here - just grandstanding. I'm sorry Mr. Thor - I'm done.
Best brad Thor Book
By Fruitland bob
This was an action packed thriller. Best Brad thor book I've read
Great book but the author goes a bit overboard with the economic critiques. I understand where his sympathies lie, but not everything on the right is good and holy while the left is the source of all evil in the world. The evil lefty billionaire (i.e. George Soros) is good for this plot but the real life actions of the Koch brothers (and other conservative oligarchs) and their efforts to affect our society seems to merit consideration in some metaphorical form as well. The book came out in an election year so clearly Brad was trying to make a point. I know conservatives think they have a monopoly on patriotism, but many progressives are equally as passionate in their love for this country.
Great read from the start
From the get go, this book is fast paced and action packed. This was my first book from Brad Thor and got me hooked. Have read the latest book, Black List and now working on the previously released books. Great storyline...
I have been reading Brad Thor books from first to last and every one of them is better than the last.
Brad Thor is simply the best. Have read everything he has written and enjoyed every word. It's a win-win because I enjoy the novels and am being educated at the same time. I could not quite understand the last page, however, maybe someone can explain it to me. Giuseppe Santaniello, Brig Gen, USAF, Ret
It's pretty good and I really enjoy the fact that this book makes you think about real life. Not just mindless story reading. I just kinda don't like the long tangents.
Fiction or not?
Loved the book, and how it ties with current events. So much of what is in this book could or is happening now. Keep up the great work Brad.
Waste of time
By Seymour J. Wiener
The book has moments when its quite entertaining but all too often the author goes off these tangents ranting and raging about liberals, Muslims and anything that is not all-American by his standards. I would have preferred he focus on the action/covert ops than waste the readers' time on his, at times, bigoted views.
