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?
Excellent stuff and elucidating material about federal reserve gives this book atop notch Mark

The Fed is a club. It was created in secret and it operates in secret ("Hidden Order delves into this in detail) with no intentions at all of being transparent or being reigned in. Instead of fixing the systemic issues it brought about from the years of easy money by Greenspan, this stooge Bernanke, along with Turbo-Tax Timmy, bailed out all their powerful friends. But don't let Bush off the hook as Hank Paulson, via the Goldman Sachs revolving door into Fed and Treasury policy, diverted the TARP funds to pay premiums for pure junk to their pals, not the American people who are still hurting.
This story has a few major story lines going on and (at least to me) more characters than usual. So while you're up at 2 AM reading this book make sure you pay attention to who is who because the person on page 150 might not be the person on page 152. Brad has never been one to shirk from taking the truth, mudstomping it, and then throwing it in our face. `Hidden Order' is no different and this time the Federal Reserve is the one on the Brad Thor guillotine.
I've always been of the mind that fiction authors write to entertain and non-fiction authors write to educate. But Brad has the enviable insane skill to accomplish both. If you think of yourself as pretty educated wait till you read this book you haven't seen nothing yet. If you have no clue about some of the TRUE Federal Reserve facts go and do a Google search they will frighten you.
In between the history lesson about the Federal Reserve and beloved Boston there is a lot of action and a very interesting story line between Harvath and another character. I say interesting because this interaction could have some deeper ramifications as this series moves on. I like how Brad has developed Harvath. I seriously don't think any other person could have done what Harvath did in this book.
Anyway, Brad can tell a story like nobody's business and you no choice but to enjoy the conflict between the alpha male and female, Harvath and Cordero. You'll wonder how you could admire (too strong a word?) the genius and creativity of the killers while you are given a history lesson you would NEVER learn in today's schools, all while apprehensively turning the pages because you really don't want to see how they slaughter the next person. But you can't help it. This type of voyeurism goes way beyond craning your neck to see an accident. This is craning your neck to see an accident all while crossing your fingers that there is another one around the corner.
It's a wonderful read and an informative read. Mr. Thor has been appearing on more shows than any author I have seen of late and this book should be a real eye-opener for those who thought we are on the right track because the train is speeding and barely holding the rails thanks to this clandestine group that tacks on more-and-more debt that even our grand children will be burdened by. The Fed needs to be stopped and this awareness Mr. Thor brings to the people in this thriller is a good start for the common man. I already have seen and fully understood the points in the book due to education and working on the street. Now the general public has an great read and an education to go with it. Thank you Mr. Thor. A job well done...kudos But watch your back because you are now on the Fed`s Sh..t list.
At the end I did not know what they were doing, why, and who was the final culprit. And, Harvath was just having coffee latte with his police female friend. He could not pick a clue. For example, while he sat in the back seat of Sal's car, he did not figure out something was wrong with the drum next to his seat in the car. Frustrated, I did not read book epilogue and started reading a book of Vince Flynn. By all means, Brad Thor is a great fiction writer, and I know his next book will have 5 stars. I am looking forward to it.
