I just hope we do have a Scot Harvath out there someplace covering our behinds and trying to keep the politicians and corporation heads honest.
Thank you Brad Thor for all the research you do.
I am looking forward to your next book.
I would definitely recommend to others and will very quickly read more of Mr. Thor's books.
Scot finds himself out of contact with the other members of the Carlton group. Indeed all of them are dead due to the actions of the kill teams which are relentlessly hunting them down. The sole exception is the founder and director of the Carlton Group who finds himself in the same situation as Scot.
Both men are alone and they face an unknown enemy who has a deadly plan to institute a virtual takeover of the United States.
The book deals with these resourceful individuals and also Nicholas, also known as the Troll who uncovers some of the details of the plot orchestrated by the Advance Technology Solutions or ATS.
ATS is a massive organization which has endeared itself to the NSA and many other government agencies and mastered the art of complete surveillance of much of the United States. Through the use of Department of Defense "wet' teams, ATs is eliminating its potential enemies (such as the Carlton Group) before undertaking its bold plan to seize control of the US.
Mr. Thor has one a brilliant job of portraying the plot through the point of view of the key players, including the head of ATS. He has wielded together an intricate resolution to the plot.
That interface is for the reader to find out.
Five stars. Highly recommended.
Black List could have been a great book. The concept is one that is very relevant in todays headlines. But the book was written with very little tension. I've enjoyed the Harvath character over the years but even he has become boring and one-dimensional. New characters were introduced right out of central casting with back stories that were irrelevant. Scenes of potential interaction between characters were reduced to summary descriptions of what happened next. The action scenes were also predictable and lacked any real tension. In fact, the Harvath action sequences seemed to be the same scene, written several times - just in different locations. The good guys never seemed to be in any real danger and the bad guys never seemed to be capable of doing any real damage to anything...other than themselves.
I felt bored while reading most of this book and thats been the case with all of Thor's books since The Athena Project. As much as I have enjoyed the Harvath character in the past, I feel like this will be the last of these books I will read.
