Description

In his daring and chilling first novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor draws us into a sinister labyrinth of political intrigue and international terrorism, serving up an explosive cocktail of unrelenting action as one man is pushed to the edge.

On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the President of the United States has been kidnapped and his Secret Service detail massacred. Only one agent has survived—ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath. He doesn’t buy the official line that Middle Eastern terrorists are behind the attack and begins his own campaign to find the truth and exact revenge. But now, framed for murder by a sinister cabal, Harvath takes his fight to the towering mountains of Switzerland—and joins forces with beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney’s Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus—where their only chance for survival lies inside the den of the most lethal team of professional killers the world has ever known…

    Not particularly well written. The dialogue does not fit the emotion that is trying to be conveyed portrays unprofessional behavior of the agents. Fiction is fiction but this could not hold my attention.
  • Awesome read!!

    A fast-paced, action thriller that's quite enjoyable. There was clearly a lot of effort put in to research for the details of the story. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
  • Great read!

    If u like dumb James Bond thrillers you'll enjoy. Otherwise just a stupid blah, blah super Seal story.
  • Great plot but dialogue is sophomoric at best.

    Overall, I enjoyed this book which is the first Brad Thor novel I've read. As tough as the character Scott Horvath is portrayed to be, the dialogue between him and the antagonists sounds like stuff I heard on the playground in Jr. high school. Kinda geeky.
  • Fun Fun Fun!

    Juvenile plotting, silly decisions, and even sillier dialogue... Difficult to continue reading... I'll assume his writing matures so I will skip a few novels ahead... My advice is to skip this one...
  • Good read
