"If you love thrillers . . . if you've ever read a thriller you enjoyed . . . if you think you *might* like a thriller . . . you HAVE to pre-order Brad Thor's NEAR DARK. This might be the single greatest thriller I've covered on The Real Book Spy. It's amazing!" (The Real Book Spy)
"Not since Ian Fleming rendered James Bond a mere shell of himself in the wake of "From Russia, With Love" has an author pushed an icon to such depths." (Providence Journal)
"Brad Thor has mastered the art of the thriller cliffhanger." (New York Journal of Books)
"Fast-paced... Pulse-pounding... Supremely entertaining... His best ever." (Washington Times)
"Brad Thor thrills yet again with NEAR DARK." (The San Diego Tribune)

So off he goes on a very tricky, dangerous mission--even riskier than usual!--because, you know, Our Hero can't be controlled; he's gonna do it anyhow because ... well, that's just him, right? And he keeps on drinking heavily!!
So we have pages and pages--not exaggerating here--of his ruminating about his grief, his life, his need for revenge. Personally, I read for enjoyment and alcoholics don't do it--that's 'dark' you see? The hero chain-smokes, drinks heavily, marital problems, etc. I'll pass and you should, too.
This book, from the way too obvious scene where Scott is saved in Key West, is one long continuation of chase the bad guys, find the bad guys, kill the bad guys in order to get to the next set of bad guys. Finally, of course, Scott and company, now with the addition of the beautiful Solvi from the Norwegian Secret Service helping the team, find the penultimate bad guys and (surprise)... kill them. Mission complete. Ultimately, Solvi awakens Scott's dormant emotional impulses and perhaps his bodily needs. My problem with this is that the plot line is so thinly disguised. Then there's the over abundance of explanatory material and background, which most of the time seems like filler rather than necessary detail. Lastly, Thor seems to make it a point to violate one of the thriller author's cardinal rules: show it, don't talk about it, such as: Scott needed to figure a way out of this situation, and quick! Glad to finish this one and get on to something more solid and better written.
It is indeed a thriller and also terrorism. The survivor aspect takes a role in this novel as Scot must utilize his skills to 'outwit, outrun and outlast' his pursuers.
The action is intense and the author has added a female Norwegian intelligence operative...Selvi to assist Scott. We also know that Scott is not the trusting type but he needs help... Interesting aspect of this novel.
Intense action and adventure, a plot with sevreral layers and a cast of characters that will hold your interest...The evil 'doers' are really evil and fit the requirement for those roles. And, remember that once a SEAL...always a SEAL...
Loved this novel...and for multiple reasons.
Most highly recommended.
I spent a lot of time just skimming through pages after page of Scot taking a shower or getting ready to go out.
I always pre order his books but I think this is it for me.
Really hard to even give it two stars.
