I am writing this before I have finished Just because I am on Amazon and want to give a shout out to Brad Thor, for one darn good explanation, simply written, about the difference between Socialism and Communism. For the young person or non curious, or for others who like me, have been debating the issue of words and meaning of ideologies for the last 15 years, due to our own internet, branding, name calling and assorted differences in politics and understanding, Thor has summed it up in a conversation by his famous spy.
The rest of the story is topical, logical from a L.E. perspective and as usual, just enough realism,excitement and wishful fantasy to be appealing to both civilian, Law Enforcement and civilian readers. Like many good writers with friends, Thor mixes the truth with the fiction and develops a good story and teaches a little, if one is interesting in learning while enjoying good writing. Thor incorporates history in a subtle manner in this one, but is still there for me and any others who like stories with some evidence of the authors knowledge and attention to detail. If you like Brad Thor, I advise you try this one. If you have never read his books, I don't think you will be disappointed.
"Bad guys" think. Thanks Brad for another wonderful read! Now I am onto the next in this series.
My only real complaint, and I have noticed this in a couple of other stories, is, for whatever reason he needs a stronger ending. I will continue to read Thor because much of what he writes hits close to home and I would hope my members of Congress are reading them as well.
In this novel, it is an Islamic terror group, put together by the Chinese and co-opted by an evil Billionaire. That properly hits all the bad guys - Islamic Terror Groups, the Chinese, and of course the evil business folks. A bit trite, but Brad Thor seems to make it work.
I like the fact that Thor does his homework and has enough details to make his stories believable, so long as you don't over think them. For example he drops into the narrative superficial information on Tempest Products - those that block electrical emissions that could be used to eavesdrop on electrical devices. Yes, Tempest products have been around a long time - the first I saw were IBM electric typewriters back in the 1970's - they cost more than double the cost of a regular IBM, but had enough shielding to block out the electrical emissions. Other references seem to also be well researched. He does not go overboard with them, just drops a few in at appropriate points in the story.
He leaves us with a cliff hanger, which I am sure will lead directly into the next novel in this well written series.
It helps to have read the other books in the series, but unlike some authors, he gives just enough background to bring the reader up to speed, so they can enjoy this book, even if it is the first Scot Harvath novel they have read.
