From New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor comes his latest pulse-pounding adventure (The Real Book Spy) that follows covert operative Scot Harvath as he is called upon to stop an ISIS-led plot to destroy the Vatican.

In the wake of his girlfriend's brutal murder by an assassin who is in possession of a strange radioactive isotope, covert counter-terrorism agent Scot Harvath discovers clues to a conspiracy with presidential ties that puts him at odds with his own agency. By the author of Takedown. Simultaneous.

Although an riveting story, definitely relevant to today's world, I found the book descriptively violent.

The narrative begins with Harvath in the hospital room with his fiancé, who was shot by an assassin and is in a coma. As the story progresses, Harvath realizes that all of the violence, attacks and/or murders of family and friends are the result of someone's sick desire for vengeance.

As part of a secretive Homeland Security Team, the President of the United States orders him to stand down and not get involved in seeking the perpetrator(s) of these ghastly deeds. Of course, Harvath can't do that; he is a man of honor and deeply committed to his country, family and friends.

Reader Beware: There are some gruesome, graphic details that you may not want to read.
Another great Scot Harvath book. This time I'm holed up in a hotel room with two dogs, escaping the coastal wrath of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irene so I finished this one in a day.

This one upholds the tradition of keeping the books hard to put down, with plenty of twists and turns and references back to previous adventures that it never gets boring.

Keep it up Brad...and I'll keep coming back for more!
Another good Scot H book, though I need to slow down on reading this sort of stuff all the time ... a diet of Alice in Wonderland would complement this well, perhaps. Compared with Forsyth, Clancy et al., Thor seems equally impressive in trotting out his knowledge of weapons, special forces people ... but then who am I to judge. Basically, the book is a great read as it conforms perfectly to EM Forster's recipe for a good novel, to pay attention to the "tapeworm of the story" (if I am quoting right). Enough pretentiousness... good book, read, or better borrow or if needed buy ... and enjoy!
ALL of Brad Thors 'Scott Harvath' books are incredible! If you like thrillers, with a lot of truth in them, and you like a REAL man character, all of the Scott Harvath series are your cup of tea. The character of Scott Harvath is a Navy Seal, turned Secret Service Agent, turned private counterterrorism agent, and Brad makes me realize all over again how dedicated, real and special these men are there in real life. You won't be disappointed in any of the series, but my suggestion is to read them in order, starting with the Lions of Lucerne, because many of the characters in the books reappear again and again and without knowing what came before you may miss something. I believe this is the fifth book in the series. Can't wait for number twelve to come out early this summer!

I thought I was purchasing a like new hardcover book, but it came from a second party and the dust cover was badly torn and the pages were really yellowed, plus there was a price sticker of $1.99 on it still, so although I liked the book I wasn't happy with the state of the book I received, however, at that time I couldn't find it brand new so I kept it. Next time I may not purchase if it doesn't come directly from Amazon.
First let me say that I have not read all of Brad Thor's books but have read several and liked them all. This one, however, was not a favorite and I'm not sure why. It took about 1/2 the book to really get into it. I like books by Vince Flynn, Ted Bell and David Balducci. I like it when the villian is a true villian and the author pulls no punchs whether it is portrayed as a Russian, a Muslim or any other representative group. Evil is evil regardless of the ethnic background and having discovered that Hollywood sanitized some of Clancy's books to make it more politically correct, I like it when the author doesn't succumb to such tactics. In Thor's books, one knows who the evil ones are and you know that the protaganist will get them in the end. This book reminded me of a couple of seasons of the TV show 24, where the government turns on Jack {in this case, Scot} and brands him a traitor when he is the only one seemingly capable of capturing/killing the terrorist. Unfortunately, this is a scenario I can too easily believe could happen in real life. Perhaps this is why it wasn't my favorite. I'm working my way through all of his books and know I'll enjoy more or Brad Thor's work.
I found it very boring and tedious, unlike the first 5 Brad Thor books. I never knew, or wanted to know, so much about gear sizes and boxes. Very little action in this book. I was tempted to put it down 2/3 of the way through but decided to slog it out hoping that the ending would be exciting, which is wasn't. I'll be starting his 7th book next and if it's the same pace it will be my last and I'll just go back to Clancy.
Loved this book as well as every other book I have read of his. Every time I buy a new one I know my day is going to be shot because I will read all of it one day an. I have a hard time putting the book down. I sometimes have to buy his books in audiobooks just because I listen while I'm driving so it forces me to stop once I get out of the car and not waste an entire day. He brings the story to life so well that at times I've had to think twice that it didn't really happen. I sit there thinking was that a real event or something I read in one of his books. Will continue to read all of his stories and hope he continues to produce them.
Working as a governmental agent he was involved with enemies of the U.S. who would not blink an eye before killing someone they suspected to oppose their thoughts. The downside was that if loyalty was questionable, they would resort to eliminate friends of any agents involved. The President proposed a plan, well thought out, or so he thought, to locate and remove any future murders by releasing foreign agents from prison. The release was motivated by a threat from a unknown person, the threat would would be directed towards school children. The President had made a promise and if broken w
Result in bloodshed. The author in a way involved me, because I felt involved in everything.
