In his daring and chilling first novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor draws us into a sinister labyrinth of political intrigue and international terrorism, serving up an explosive cocktail of unrelenting action as one man is pushed to the edge.

On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the President of the United States has been kidnapped and his Secret Service detail massacred. Only one agent has survived—ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath. He doesn’t buy the official line that Middle Eastern terrorists are behind the attack and begins his own campaign to find the truth and exact revenge. But now, framed for murder by a sinister cabal, Harvath takes his fight to the towering mountains of Switzerland—and joins forces with beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney’s Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus—where their only chance for survival lies inside the den of the most lethal team of professional killers the world has ever known…


  • Lived Up To Expectations

    By ScottBoufford
    A fast-paced, action thriller that's quite enjoyable. There was clearly a lot of effort put in to research for the details of the story. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
  • Great read!

    One of the most entertaining and FUN read I had in a long time! I had a hard time putting this novel down. Keep up the good work Brad!
  • Uhhhgggg

    By Longhorn5555
    Juvenile plotting, silly decisions, and even sillier dialogue... Difficult to continue reading... I'll assume his writing matures so I will skip a few novels ahead... My advice is to skip this one...

  • Sorry I wasted my money

    By AFVet
    Good authors are hard to find. Especially those who can spin a good tale without excess sex and profanity. I'm no prude, but I couldn't even finish the prologue. A Gay tryst and hard profanity? And this book came highly recommended by Glen Beck and Sean Hannity. I was saddened as I had really looked forward reading a new author. I gave up Tom Clancy long ago for the same reason. Why is it that writers think they can't spin a great tale without sex and hard profanity? I will take my money elsewhere and support good writers who can write great stories without the dirt. Sorry Brad, you lost more than a potential loyal reader.
  • Super read

    Good enough to make me want to buy another.
  • Good read

    By DrDeb7
    Overall this was a good read. While Thor provides many details to characters' actions, sometimes he overextends his plots. I love the action and the seeming realism but find the logic wanting. I would, however, recommend this book for a great escape!
