For those familiar with the Harvath series, this book is very different from the usual adventures in the series. Almost the entire book is devoted to all of the obstacles Harvath has to overcome as he tries to save himself and get to safety in nearby Finland. There is plenty of intrigue, suspense, and action, but it is Harvath’s struggle to survive that really keeps you turning the pages of this book. Thor makes you really feel Harvath’s pain, exhaustion, and sense of urgency. While each of the chapters is short, and there are lots of opportunities to stop reading for a while, I found myself compelled to keep reading. I got the book last night, read about half of it then and finished reading it today. I had great difficulty putting it down. It is that good.
My only criticism of this book is the ending feels quite rushed. I can’t really say more without spoiling the read, but I do wish the last 50 or 60 pages had been saved for the next book in the series because there would have been plenty there to expand upon and make a lot more interesting. That said, the book has a definite ending to the story, so you don’t have to worry about having to buy the next one just to reach an ending.
I have read almost all of Brad Thor’s Harvath series of books, missing only two or three of the latest ones. All are great books to read that will really hold your interest, and Backlash is no exception. If you have never read any of the previous books in the series, don’t worry. This book stands on its own and does not require knowledge from reading any of the previous books in the series. I highly recommend it.

This one does not disappoint ...not for one page. The reader will read about survival skills that Scot Harvath has and will be amazed at his stealth, strength and perseverance. No rescue posse on its way, so his individual ingenuity and previous training both as a SEAL and black ops are relied on heavily.
The fact that Russia is involved in this novel made it more interesting to me... Enjoy a novel when it speaks to current events. And, the location...talk about a snowy adventure...this is it...
The novel is fast-paced, plot is multi-layered, and the characters are well defined. I always appreciate a novel when the protagonists and antagonists are evenly divided.
Buckle up your seat belt and settle in for a ride filled with action, adventure and suspenseful situations that seem insurmountable...until Scott proves them to be wrong.
I found it to be well written and a most entertaining and excruciating read, at times.
Most highly recommended.

Not as good as the previous book, Spymaster, which should be read first to make sense of this story. Plenty of action, but one tires of the invincibility of our hero even in the face of ridiculously overwhelming odds.
Say no more ... I love these books
Die directe Fortsetzung von "Spymaster" hat es in sich. Absolut spannend, fesselnd, brutal und ohne chit chat.
"Backlash" ist Popcorn Kino vom Feinsten. Brad Thor und Scot Harvath in Höchstform.
Neben "Lions of Lucerne" mit Sicherheit der Beste in der Reihe.
Nur in den bald 20 Jahren hat sich die Welt geändert. Die Russen sind inzwischen Hightec. Und in Sachen Korruption sollten sich die Amis an die eigene Nase fassen.
Jedenfalls unheimlich spannende, plastische Schilderungen. Man kann gar nicht anders, als das Buch in zwei Zügen durchzulesen!
