Navy SEAL turned covert operative Scot Harvath is called to action once again in Brad Thor's hottest political thriller yet. Buried within the black ops budget of the Department of Defense, a new spy agency has been created. Unfettered by the oversight of self-serving politicians, it reports only to a secret panel of insiders. Its job is to target America's enemies--both foreign and domestic--under a charter of three simple words: "Find, Fix, "and "Finish." Recruited as a field operative, Scot Harvath has just returned from his first assignment abroad when a bombing in Rome kills a group of American college students. The evidence points to a dangerous colleague from Harvath's past, and Harvath is tasked with leveraging his relationship to lure the man out of hiding and destroy him. But what if he has the wrong man? Simultaneously, a young woman is struck by a taxi in a hit-and-run in Chicago, and city police soon abandon their fruitless investigation. But when the family's attorney digs deeper, he uncovers a shocking connection to the Rome bombing and the perpetrators' plans for America. Tying together the disparate violence, Scot Harvath races to prevent one of the most audacious and unthinkable acts of terror in the history of mankind.

Publishers Weekly, 2010-05-31 In Thor's formulaic ninth Scot Harvath thriller (after The Apostle), the ex-navy SEAL has lost his job with the disbanding under a new presidential administration of the Apex Project, a Department of Homeland Security secret antiterrorist program that didn't worry about obeying any rules. Fortunately, Harvath lands on his feet with the Carlton Group, funded covertly by the Department of Defense, with an identical mission. After a bus full of Americans is blown up in Rome, Harvath travels to Europe to track down a man known as the Troll, who's been implicated in the bombing. Meanwhile, John Vaughn, a Chicago cop who somehow moonlights as an attorney for private clients, seeks to identify the Middle Eastern-looking man who ran down a woman with his cab. Predictably, Vaughn uncovers a plot against civilian targets in Chicago. Bumbling CIA agents make members of the secret Carlton Group look even more heroic. Fans of TV's 24 may enjoy the over-the-top setups, but even they might wish for a little more sophistication. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
