#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.

I have read all of Brad Thor's books and loved them. In this book, he writes about the possibility of using electromagnetic energy to bring down the US. This is downright scary. Thor always writes about possibilities of events happening and you find yourself asking if this could really happen. Once I started reading, I could not put the book down and finished it in two days. Now, I'll have to wait for the next Scot Harvath novel!

Brad Thor is an outstanding writer, whose writing style captivates and drives the reader in such a way that it makes it really difficult to put one of his books down before finishing it. He is most definitely one of my favorite writers and I make it a point to order his books as they come out.

Scott Horvath is one of the best characters I have ever read.

Interesting, fast moving, not too realistic. Another decent "airport or airplane" book.  It keeps you reading, even though the outcome is predictable.  But who thinks China would really want to destroy the USA?  After all, who would then buy all the stuff they manufacture?

Brad Thor is one of my favorite thriller/spy writers. His plots are always sophisticated and scary plausible, which makes reading them even more exciting. In this novel, Scot Harvath and his crew need to stop the Chinese from deploying an electromagnetic weapon which would render America without power. A challenging plot which makes you think.

Brad Thor's books are fantastic, I can't get enough of them. Also many of the things that are talked about in his books are possible or are in the works some where. He writes about this in the beginnings of his books, so you know I haven't made it up. This is actually very scary as most of these things (we who are not in the know) have no idea about. If you want the full Harveth experience start with book 1, that's what I did and I am amazed at what I learn and thrilled with the whole action-packed series. Thank you Brad Thor!

Good idea but not up to BT's standards. Seemed like parts were missing - did the editors chop it down to meet some page limit?
