“[A]nother instant classic.” —The Real Book Spy
“The undisputed master of blending geopolitics with spycraft…a thriller aficionado’s dream.” —The Providence Journal

The new Cold War is about to go hot.

#1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most intense thriller yet.

Scot Harvath is having his best summer ever. With a cottage on the fjord, a boat, and his beautiful girlfriend Sølvi, he’s got everything he could possibly want. But out of vacation days and long overdue back home, America’s top spy has a decision to make—return or submit his resignation.

When his deadly past comes calling, though, he’ll be left with no choice at all.

Leaving his favorite Oslo café, Harvath watches as a ghost climbs out of a taxi—a man he killed years ago, halfway around the world. How is he still alive? And what is he doing in Norway?

In a race against time that will take him high above the Arctic Circle, Harvath is tested in ways he never could’ve imagined and pushed to a limit few human beings could ever endure.

If he succeeds, he’ll walk away with everything. If he fails, the United States and its allies will be at the mercy of one of the world’s most dangerous actors.

    Scot Harvath high above the Arctic Circle is tasked to stop a threat that could seriously leave America and its allies at the mercy of China and Russia. America and Norways defense system severely impacted. Non stop action. A stupendous read!!

    Well researched. Reading about Norwegian environment and people was excellent. His knowledge of potential Arctic warfare and Russian and Chinese subterfuge was informative. Liked learning about US icebreakers, the lack of, and potential issues it causes was quite interesting.
  • Another good yarn with an underlying message

    By Admiral Charles
    There is something reassuring in reading these admittedly formulaic novels. Yes they blindly Reinforce many of our deep seated beliefs and mores. Yet is it so bad that some of us believe in patriotism, decency and commitment to the greater good? Chuck
  • Great,more please

  • Couldn’t finish

    By Thisoldfish
    Surprisingly boring and blah. Bagged it halfway through and moved on.
  • Pretty good.
