From #1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 Publishers Weekly bestselling author, Brad Thor, comes Takedown.

July 4th weekend, New York City: As thousands of holiday travelers make their way out of Manhattan, a flawlessly executed terrorist attack plunges the city into a maelstrom of panic and death. Amid the chaos, an elite team of foreign operatives is systematically searching for one of their own, a man so powerful that the US government refuses to admit he even exists and will do anything to keep him hidden. Now, with the world’s deadliest enemy upon America’s doorstep, counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath must fight his way through the burning city streets to take down an invisible terrorist mastermind with the means to unleash hell on a global scale.

    This book was worse than the previous one in the series. I thought I’d give him another chance as his first novel was decent, but this book was ridiculous. Willy Wonka ridiculous. I really am not sure why this author is so popular. There are other much more talented authors out there spinning higher quality yarns in this genre. I think I am done with BT.
  • Just as good second time around

  • Uh... cliff hanger much?

    Brad you outdid yourself my friend. Story started a little strange, but the action kept it going and eventually ended in a way I was not at all expecting. You gotta leave a prologue on something like that! Fantastic book, lots of action and am super excited for the next one. 5 stars no doubt!
  • My new favorite author

    I was a fan of Vince Flynn’s series based on a similar charactor. When Vince passed away (still missing his series) I went in search for something similiar. Brad isn’t a carbon of Vince, he has his own style. I believe you will be engrossed in his books and in the Scott Harvath charactor. Although I suggest starting a series at the beginning, if you haven’t read one of Brad’s books, Takedown is a great example of what is in store for you if you take on the rest of his books (as I have). Keep’m coming Brad, and I’ll keep reading them.

    Great book!!! Every book I read makes me open my eyes a little more on how crazy real these stories could go from nonfiction to fiction, guess that what makes all BT books impossible to put down.
