Full Black was my first introduction to Brad Thor. The book is a very good standalone action thriller while still fitting in the context of a larger story. Thor's hero, Scot Harvath, is in the middle of an operation to crack open a terror cell in Europe with plans for the United States as well. Simultaneously, a Hollywood film director is on the hit list of some very unsavory people who don't like his current project. Behind the scenes is an evil billionaire bent on fundamentally changing the United States into his own twisted utopia. Thor's characterization of this man is a blatant impersonation of a particular individual who Americans that have been watching his machinations will instantly recognize. Kudos to Thor for not pulling punches with this character. It would pay for the American public to watch out for and become familiar with the individual Thor is referring to. Thematically the book is dark and sets a tense atmosphere while our heros struggle desparately to prevent and mitigate terrorist actions which threaten American lives and way of life. Both sides win victories and suffer loses. The action is quite good and the tension builds throughout. I can't compare it with other Thor books but I hope for future installments swiftly and will be catching up on his previous publications. With Full Black, Thor has made me a fan. Recommended.
