Brad Thor Books Overview
In a daring and chilling debut, Brad Thor draws us into a sinister labyrinth of political intrigue and international terrorism, serving up an explosive cocktail of unrelenting action and a shattering climax as one man is pushed to the edge.
On the snow covered slopes of Utah, the unthinkable has just become a nightmarish reality: thirty Secret Service agents have been viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States is kidnapped by one of the most lethal terrorist organizations in the Middle East the dreaded Fatah.
But one man, surviving agent and ex Navy SEAL Scot Harvath, doesn’t believe the Fatah is responsible for the attack. Driven by his professional code of duty and honor and a solemn vow to avenge his fallen comrades Scot creates his own rules to get some answers. But his search for the truth raises the blood pressure of his superiors…
and casts his own life in mortal jeopardy. The deadly machinations have been set in motion by a shadowy coalition, comprising some of the highest ranking officials in government and business men who operate above the law, men who realize the threat Scot poses to their hidden agenda…
men who will do anything to stop him.
Now framed for murder and on the run, Scot goes for broke and takes his own brand of justice to the unlikeliest place of all the towering mountains of Switzerland. It is there that he finds an improbable ally in the beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney’s Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus and enter the den of the most notorious team of professional killers the world has ever known.
When Brad Thor arrived on the scene with his hard hitting debut novel, ‘The Lions of Lucerne,’ he was greeted with an enthusiasm rarely seen since John le Carre’s heyday. ‘A roller coaster of a debut,’ pronounced Kyle Mills. And Nelson DeMille, the master of the genre himself, welcomed Thor as ‘a savvy new novelist’ with a knack for action scenes that ‘will give the reader a case of vertigo.’ Now, Thor and his indomitable hero Scot Harvath are back, raising the stakes and taking on one of the world’s most deadly terrorist organizations bent on stoking a global holy war of apocalyptic proportions. After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out and 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 toward one man the world’s most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal, who has 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. Only one person can positively identify Harvath’s quarry Meg Cassidy, a beautiful hijacking survivor. Together, Scot and Meg must untangle a maddening web of global intrigue stretching across four continents. From Macau, Jerusalem, and Chicago to Libya, Capri, and Rome, Harvath and Cassidy find themselves locked in a desperate race against time to sort the pieces of a deadly puzzle that will test not only their physical and mental limits, but also the growing bond theyfeel for each other.
From the national bestselling author of The Lions of Lucerne and Path of the Assassin comes another electrifying international thriller featuring all American hero Scot Harvath, as he plunges into the frigid heart of the Russian tundra to save the fragile State of the Union. On a cold January morning, the United States awakes to discover that an old enemy, one long believed dead and buried, has crawled out of its grave to lay siege to the world’s only superpower. With the stunning discovery that enhanced Soviet made suitcase nukes have been secreted in America’s major cities, President Jack Rutledge gathers his National Security Council to weigh the feasibility of a first strike against the Russian Federation. There’s only one problem. For over two decades, the Russians have been funneling international aid money into a top secret air defense system, which has just been brought on line and which will render any conventional attack upon their country utterly ineffective. After exhausting all of his other options, and with Soviet sleeper agents preparing to detonate their deadly payloads across the United States, the president turns to the nation’s final hope, ex Navy SEAL and Secret Service Agent Scot Harvath. Assigned to a covert section of the Department of Homeland Security and charged with defending the nation against all foreign aggressors by any means necessary, Harvath finds himself hand picked by the president to unravel a brilliantly orchestrated, fiendishly timed conspiracy that has already shattered the fragile peace between the world’s nations and which, if successful, will leave the United States in smoldering ruins. With family friend and former Deputy FBI Director Gary Lawlor nowhere to be found and suspected of betraying his country, Harvath embarks on an adventure that will test the bonds of loyalty and reveal a nation’s deepest secrets. As high voltage and timely as they come, State of the Union is a frighteningly real, headline ripping tale of espionage and intrigue that will keep readers guessing until the last tantalizing piece of the puzzle locks into place. With exotic international locales, hair raising suspense, and scenes of pulse pounding action, Brad Thor has once again reaffirmed his position as the thriller writer readers and critics alike have hailed as Clancy, Cussler, and Ludlum all rolled into one.
When a mysterious new weapon tips the balance against American and Allied forces throughout the Middle East, the only person the president can call for help is the man the administration has just fired Navy SEAL turned covert Homeland Security operative, Scot Harvath. Caught live on Al Jazeera in an off the books operation, Harvath is forced to go to ground as a senator, with presidential aspirations, turns her sights on the White House and forces President Jack Rutledge to publicly end the career of America’s number one counter terrorism operative. But when the tide in the war against terror suddenly turns against the West, the president has no choice but to bring Harvath back inside. Ducking a congressional subpoena, Harvath travels to Cyprus where he learns about a weapon called The Sword of Allah, which terrorists intend to use to rid all Muslim lands of Western infidels. As the layers of truth unfold, Harvath is witness to realities more menacing than he ever could have imagined and must rely solely on his instincts to confront a new evil closing in on the United States. With his characteristic precision in describing military technology, high voltage action, and sweeping international sensibility, Brad Thor has created another supercharged novel that is sure to thrill.
After years without a terrorist attack on American soil, one group has picked the 4th of July weekend to pull out all the stops. In a perfectly executed attack, all of the bridges and tunnels leading into and out of Manhattan are destroyed just as thousands of commuters begin their holiday exodus. With domestic efforts focused on search and rescue, a deadly team of highly trained foreign soldiers methodically makes its way through the city with the singular objective of locating one of their own a man so powerful that America will do anything to keep him hidden. Scot Harvath is now the country’s only hope. Fighting his way through the burning streets of Manhattan, he must mount his own operation to locate a man the United States government refuses to admit even exists.
A master assassin. A vendetta years in the making. And a counterterrorism operative who will risk everything even treason to keep the people he loves alive.
