"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" -- from publisher's web site

Returned. No good.

This is the first book I've read by this author. Thought it was quite good - the action goes back and forth from China, the U.S., North Korea and Dubai. I'll most likely read another of his books. I grimaced at the reviewer from Providence Journal: "a thinking man's thriller....". As it happens, I'm a "thinking woman"!

Brad Thor does another great job with this book. Once again, Scot Harvath saves the world (but you knew that already). If you have liked previous Harvath stories, you'll love this one too.

His lamest to date in my opinion and, at best, 2.5 stars.

It still doesn't have the action that I recall from earlier novels. But I still enjoyed it and will continue to read the series.

Thor does it again. Once you start it's hard to put this book down. Story mirror's todays political environment.
