Description

Lethal operative Scot Harvath is dispatched to avenge the killing of American citizens abroad in #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor’s new pulse-pounding thriller.

In the war-ravaged borderlands of Ukraine, a Russian mercenary unit has gone rogue. Its members, conscripted from the worst prisons and mental asylums across Russia, are the most criminally violent, psychologically dangerous combatants to ever set foot upon the modern battlefield.

With all attention focused on the frontlines, they have pushed deeper into the interior to wage a campaign of unspeakable barbarity. As they move from village to village, committing horrific war crimes, they meet little resistance as all able-bodied men are off fighting the war.

Simultaneously, a team of Russian soldiers has been dispatched by the Kremlin to loot truckloads of art and priceless cultural treasures hidden away in a host of churches, museums, and private homes.

When multiple American aid workers are killed, America’s top spy, Scot Harvath, is sent in to settle the score. But in a country so vast, will Harvath be able to find the men in question and, more importantly, will he be able to stop them before they can kill again?

    Cheesy unfulfilled ending . You are left hanging. Too many references to murphys law. Not that cute.

    The description and accounts of the fighting in Ukraine is bone chilling. We as Americans sitting in our warm homes can’t even begin to imagine or comprehend the horror that the civilians in Ukraine are experiencing. The people that have volunteered to fight in this country’s war are both crazy and to be admired. Brad Thor has done a great service through this fictional portrayal of putting the reader into the intense situation. May we never forget that man is willing to do the unthinkable to a fellow human being.
  • Superfluous side story

    Thor made a book out of a novella by adding an unconnected-to-the-plot side story. Also, why did the sniper ask Harvath to put his hands up when he could have easily shot him like he did with others?

    The book overall was exciting and a good read but… The story and the ending to the story didn’t really fit the previous Scott Harveth universe. I felt like Brad went with the Ukraine side since is real and current but didn’t feel natural to force this universe since past books didn’t have to follow real world events. The ending seemed kind of short and sweet and some loose ends for future stories but none that were super cliff hangerish.
  • Simply, Thank you.

    Yes Russia invaded Ukraine, terrible. No hint of any of the widespread corruption in Ukraine. The president of Ukraine is no saint, more like a tyrant. He accepts billions of dollars from the United States with no end in sight for the war. Predictable storyline.
  • Another great story. Riveting, fast paced, couldn’t put it down.
