Description

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
#1 WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER

Deadly operative Scot Harvath faces down democracy’s most powerful enemy in #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor’s white-knuckle thriller.

High in the Himalayas, armed with a host of barbaric, improvised weapons, Chinese troops ambush a contingent of highly decorated Indian soldiers. The brutal, hand-to-hand combat lasts for over six hours, destabilizing the already tenuous relationship between the two nuclear neighbors.

Fearful of the global consequences of engaging Beijing head-on, countless United States administrations have passed the buck. But when a covert American diplomat tasked with negotiating an Asian version of NATO is murdered on the streets of Jaipur, doing nothing is no longer an option. It is time to unleash Scot Harvath.

Thrust into a completely unfamiliar culture, with few he can trust, the danger begins to mount the moment Harvath lands in India. Amidst multiple competing forces and a host of deadly agendas, it is nearly impossible to tell predator from prey. With democracy itself hanging in the balance, Harvath will risk everything to untangle the explosive plot and bring every bad actor to justice.

  • Big plot flaw

    That a criminal with a large organization wouldn’t have the killed the cop (who helped Harvath) that crippled him years before is ludicrous.

    Rough start almost made me put it down but I stayed with it. Jumped around a lot with a lot of material not necessary to the main story.
  • Pretty solid

    I thought this was a pretty good entry. It certainly takes place in a country we don’t see often in thrillers and it brought something unique to the story. I still have issues with characters and their development or lack there of (every hero seems to like funk, is a patriot and thinks the same way). If we could just get some characters with differences it would make this series stand out.
  • Better than I expected.

    Typical Brad book. It’s better than the reviews state. Yes, there is a lot of background, lot of talking about stuff that gets old. Not enough action in some places. Yes, we wrap it up in about 20 pages at the end. Last five pages explains the title. That was very odd. Interesting to see where “Scot” goes next.
  • Typically great

    I’ve read them all. Hard to put down. Really good and enjoyed learning a little more about that part of the world.
