"For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers ...." -- Titus 1:10 (NKJV)
As much as I have enjoyed the prior Scot Harvath thrillers, A Hidden Order took me to a higher level of delight. Harvath is playing several new roles here as he represents the Federal Reserve in trying to save the lives of four people who have been kidnapped. This placement of Harvath in the story gives an outside-in perspective that breathes new life into the character. Further, much of the story takes place near by home ... in locations I know well. How could I fail to be delighted by a story with so much local content (at least for me)? Also, Harvath has to show he has a heart here ... something that makes any character more fun. Against that backdrop, there are crazy killers, bizarre crimes, symbolic acting out, and many misdirections. While the story certainly isn't perfect, it's just a great book to read in August on a warm evening as you listen to the crickets. There's a full moon now ... why not start tonight?

A typical American book.Why don't the American heros have a minor flaw just to make the more likeable? No everyhing is superlative starting from looks to language.Evreything the hero takes in his hands turns out to be gold.And so it goes on.His friends no matter whether male or female are in the category superlative as well they exceeded in everything they had to do.The plot is good just the writing style.....No I prefer rather a Michal Connelly with his Bosch a man who is a real character with flaws and demons, in short a human being
