Kurzbeschreibung

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor delivers his most frightening and pulse-pounding thriller ever!

After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There’s just one problem—no one knows if she can be trusted.

But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion.

With the United States facing an imminent and devastating attack, America’s new president must turn to covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath to help carry out two of the most dangerous operations in the country’s history.

Code-named "Gold Dust" and "Blackbird," they are shrouded in absolute secrecy as either of them, if discovered, will constitute an act of war.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A true thriller 14. Juli 2014
Von John
Format:Kindle Edition
One can tell how much research and work has gone into writing this wonderfully, exciting and fascinating book. The descriptions are clever and well written, and the story is paced the right way to keep the reader turning one page after another until the end of the story. The overall presentation of intriguing and colorful characters, catch phrases, intrigues, a succinct plot, appropriate dialogue and a well-observed narrative gave this story its peculiarity. The style is rare, recently seen in Triple Agent Double Cross. I applaud Brad Thor for this wonderful work.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interessanter Plot 9. September 2014
Von Frognal
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Recht spannende Geschichte mit Chinesen und Islamisten als Bösewichten, aber der amerikanische Hurra-Patriotismus ist für einen Europäer teilweise etwas störend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ~~Sleeper Cells/Storage Units/Scot and his team~~ 8. Juli 2014
Von A Navy Vet...VT town - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
With a mixture of murder overseas, missing students and an imminent attack on the United States, Scot and his team are called into action. They start out in Karachi, Pakistan, looking for an Al Qaeda member Ahmad Yaqub. The action intensifies from this point on and does not cease until the last page is turned.

There is action in North Korea involving a SEAL team and a CIA Op. Switching to China, there is a lot of background concerning the desires of the country. In the United States, Scot's team works with the FBI, CIA and the President - all working on the same page to prevent an imminent attack on the US.

The interrogation methods in several of the scenes prove to be resourceful, to say the least. Sometimes the rules must be bent in order to get the desired results. That creates a Catch 22 scenario - "damned if you do and damned if you don't". Sleeper cells are active, storage units are being utilized and Scot and his team are trying to reach both before the attack on the US. Two covert operation are ongoing - "Gold Dust" and "Blackbird" - both extremely important and critical for the US.

Outstanding mixture of characters and an exciting read throughout the book. Plot was intriguing and both the North Korean aspect as well as the Chinese connection was interesting - especially with the current events in our world today. The ending was a complete surprise to me which I always enjoy!

Most highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book. A good plot 11. Juli 2014
Von John L. Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
A good book. A good plot. But, as I have stated in a previous review of a Brad Thor novel, he could be so much better. He needs an editor that takes him over the hump rather than simply helps him count his money. I like the research, I like the politics, and I'm sure I would like Brad Thor the person, and while the characters are better this time around, he still occasionally uses a cliche or throws in long expositions that simply aren't necessary. I want Brad Thor to get better and so I am possibly too critical of his work, but his protagonist lacks edge, his writing can be pedestrian, and he doesn't seem to stretch himself artistically. So, why still give this effort four stars. It's a good summer read. He says things that only Vince Flynn would have said. You can learn by reading his work because he obviously does his research. But, I badly want to see a five-star effort.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent! I got what I was waiting for. 12. Juli 2014
Von Robert Agee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The prospect of a large national disaster rears its ugly head.. This may be what is called high concept. After that is established, the major scenes are wonderfully captivating because the hero Horvath is a very compelling tough guy, clean-cut and willing to do anything to get the job done. His compadres, men and women, are equally tough and smart and totally committed to killing bad guys and stopping evil aggressors against the USA. Brad Thor threads throughout the novel much intelligence lore and special ops lore as well as information about weapons, guns and knives and weapons much more intricate and devious! The best thing about the major scenes is that I cared about all the characters and even the villains were credible and human which I believe made it all much more exciting. I liked the Asian expedition. I liked the foray toward Cuba. The interrogation scenes were believable, compelling and very satisfying. The roman a clef aspect was also interesting where the current president in real life is similar to the just previous president in the book and the current president in the book is much more just what a Navy SEAL would want his ideal president to be.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredibly real 12. Juli 2014
Von Dan Chaloux - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Again Brad Thor proves why he is one of the best and brightest authors of the 21st century. His latest novel Act of War is an edge of your seat thriller that leaves you wanting more. The novel will not disappoint with its current events or realism.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Little bit more from the franchise, Brad!!!! 11. Juli 2014
Von Teapot John - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've read all of Brad Thor's works. This one had an interesting premise. The first half or so is quite riveting. At 80%, I had forgotten that I had not finished and the last two to three chapters seemed to be more about creating a surprise ending than about continuity. Scott's character being the Alpha male with no faults and no women and a single beer in the book, yet driven and so in control do not mesh with the Alpha male personality. There are brief mentions of a girlfirend with a son, but why? I think Brad Thor needs to get with his ghost riders a bit more on the overall product. Once a year for $13 bucks could be so much better. Why does the character have to be in his forties. The guy has aged more than the author. Do a story that fits in the chronology of the 3rd or 4th book. Give the guy a few faults - not a heroin addiction or orgy seeker, but geez this guy is a priest that shoots guns. The mind numbing list of guns and knife brands that are produced for a kit or night out against bad guys is kind of patronizing as well. Let's move this into some serious tradecraft and a few better developed characters. The hot chicks that are bad-asses get left out of a lot of scenes like they are window dressing only. If they are so smart and powerful, why do they get to set by the car and wait all the time?
