From Publishers Weekly
In Thor's latest, an assassin is viciously reducing the short list of candidates for the top job at the Federal Reserve, and it's up to rugged, hypereffective private intelligence operative Scot Harvath to halt the hits. He and a small band of associates—including his outspoken boss, Reed Carlton, and Boston detective Lara Cordero—are pitted against the wealthy and powerful members of a secret cabal. Armand Schultz makes good use of no-frills narration to deliver the author's prose crisply, while smartly adjusting his pacing during action sequences, dialogue-rich scenes, and paragraphs detailing events in American history. His aging Carlton is gruff and demanding. The head villains snarl. The women are treated to acceptable upper-register voices. And other characters are provided appropriate accents—for example, an exaggerated, gravelly Boston dialect for a Southie-born, hardboiled detective. As for Harvath, Schultz speaks in a confident, low rumble that softens in the course of the operative's romance with Cordero, who, at book's end, is strong enough to suggest a big change in his future. An Atria/Emily Bestler hardcover. (July) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

At the end I did not know what they were doing, why, and who was the final culprit. And, Harvath was just having coffee latte with his police female friend. He could not pick a clue. For example, while he sat in the back seat of Sal's car, he did not figure out something was wrong with the drum next to his seat in the car. Frustrated, I did not read book epilogue and started reading a book of Vince Flynn. By all means, Brad Thor is a great fiction writer, and I know his next book will have 5 stars. I am looking forward to it.
On the one hand, if you already know we keep aliens in Area 51 (Roswell, New Mexico); that we faked the moon landing; or, that FEMA is operating “death camps,” then you will LOVE LOVE this book. This book is a “must read” for you.
SPOILER ALERT!!! In the first quarter of the book, Mr. Thor pulls back the curtain on the Federal Reserve Board and explains its history and true purpose. Mr. Thor uses the clever literary device of having this all revealed to Scot Harvath by a senior Fed official in a lengthy monolog. I found this portion of the book to be particularly enlightening.
As a side note, I’ll confess that I have been to a number of meetings at the “Fed” (and I once sat next to Alan Greenspan during lunch in the White House “mess”) so, unlike many readers, I already knew that the Federal Reserve was not a Federal prison system. However, even I was surprised to learn that the Federal Reserve Board really is part of a depraved scheme designed for the benefit of “elite” bankers at the expense of ordinary Joes like you and me. And, if you follow the money, I am sure that the Illuminati or UN also are involved. This early part of this book made me cringe to think I was so close to those people. We should all thank Mr. Thor for opening our eyes.
On the other hand, if you rely on the MSM for your news, or know anything about the financial system in this country: stay away - this book is not for you. You probably aren’t smart enough to recognize the ugly truth if it hit you in the face. So, Mr. Thor’s revelation probably is wasted on you: like pearls before swine.
No matter what your political perspective may be, I think all will agree that Mr. Thor’s book is a good value - in terms of the quality and number of words you get for your money. But, but if you are like me, and many of his readers, one of the things that you may have enjoyed most about Mr. Thor’s past few books is that he generously shares his political views (thank God he had the prescience to warn all of us about the Muslims and Mexicans). Maybe I am just not trusting enough, but I did ask myself: if his story IS TRUE, then why didn't "they" eliminate him before or after he revealed their secret scheme? If his story IS NOT TRUE, then who benefits most from undermining confidence in our financial system?
Note: I was very disappointed that an urgent matter forced me to put the book down during Mr. Thor’s discourse on the Fed. But, I plan to pick it up again just as soon as I finish my scrap booking. At that time, I may update this review.
Seriously, I had enjoyed Thor’s earlier books. More recently, he has been injecting a large dose of his "alt-right" political views into his books. After reading earlier reader reviews, I find it very sad that some reviewers obviously believed that the tortured overview of the Fed in this book is real. I put the book down because it was simply too stupid. I won’t be reading any more of his books.
