If Thor's second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair. This follow-up to The Lions of Lucerne is loaded with explosions, gunfights, car chases and hairbreadth escapes as Secret Service agent Scot Harvath battles religious extremists and incompetent CIA spooks to save the world from WWIII. The Hand of God, an apparent Israeli terrorist group, is blowing up mosques in Saudi Arabia, assassinating Arab leaders and hijacking airplanes, all in an effort to provoke the Arab world into war with Israel. Harvath tries to derail the terrorist plot and avenge the deaths of buddies killed in the first book. Aided by Meg Cassidy, a beautiful Chicago public relations expert, Harvath chases the terrorist leader and a silver-eyed assassin from Hong Kong through Europe to North Africa. However, since Cassidy is the only one alive who has seen the face of the terrorist leader, the assassin chases them, too, trying to kill Cassidy before she can point him out. The story is one bloody episode after another, with a touch of romance and colorful turf battles between the CIA, FBI, Delta Force and Harvath himself. Thor stacks the deck in favor of his hero-Harvath never makes a mistake, and his view of how counterterrorism operations should be conducted is invariably proven correct. To top it off, he boasts about his remarkable talents. With its infallible hero, fetching sidekick and wicked bad guys, this international shoot 'em up sticks close to formula, but the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed.

Brad Thor has a writing style that keeps the pages turning, the events unfolding, all the while the tension builds as his books unfold with the elements of real world issues.
Brad's writing style, research and vetting of the protocol of complex government, political and world issues is remarkable. You can be assured that with in the first few pages the hunt is on for those who would bring harm to the free world.
Every time I read one of Brad's books I wish we really had the kind of people he portrays as the defenders and protectors of our freedoms and our country of America.
Brad Thor's books deal with real life consequences and the unthinkable acts that the ever present elusive enemy of not only the United States but the entire world.
You don't have to read these books in order. The character's will continue to come alive with each book with a subtle recap of the previous book. You can't read just one!
In all, the story line and plot were great, but the immature writing screams for a rewrite. His newer books are much better.
I very much enjoyed the story and recommend the novel. I give it a solid 4+ rating.
