5.0 out of 5 stars ~~Sleeper Cells/Storage Units/Scot and his team~~, July 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Act of War: A Thriller (Scot Harvath Book 13) (Kindle Edition)
With a mixture of murder overseas, missing students and an imminent attack on the United States, Scot and his team are called into action. They start out in Karachi, Pakistan, looking for an Al Qaeda member Ahmad Yaqub. The action intensifies from this point on and does not cease until the last page is turned.

There is action in North Korea involving a SEAL team and a CIA Op. Switching to China, there is a lot of background concerning the desires of the country. In the United States, Scot's team works with the FBI, CIA and the President - all working on the same page to prevent an imminent attack on the US.

The interrogation methods in several of the scenes prove to be resourceful, to say the least. Sometimes the rules must be bent in order to get the desired results. That creates a Catch 22 scenario - "damned if you do and damned if you don't". Sleeper cells are active, storage units are being utilized and Scot and his team are trying to reach both before the attack on the US. Two covert operation are ongoing - "Gold Dust" and "Blackbird" - both extremely important and critical for the US.

Outstanding mixture of characters and an exciting read throughout the book. Plot was intriguing and both the North Korean aspect as well as the Chinese connection was interesting - especially with the current events in our world today. The ending was a complete surprise to me which I always enjoy!

Most highly recommended.

I've never read Brad Thor's work, but will this one, thanks to Bill O'Riley

Having never read the book, Patricia posts a typical pablum comment worthy of a MSDNC left wing ostrich with her head firmly planted in the sand.
