#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor brings readers his darkest and most intriguing thriller yet - a terrifying story of espionage and betrayal - brilliantly paced with superb nonstop action.
Born in the shadows and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist.
When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States.
With the CIA's intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists' network and prevent one of the biggest threats the United States has ever faced.
Simultaneously, a foreign wet work team has been sent to California. Their target: one of Hollywood's most famous filmmakers.
While working on a secret documentary project, movie producer Larry Salomon has unknowingly exposed one of the world's wealthiest and most politically connected powerbrokers - a man with a radical anti-American agenda poised to plunge the nation into deadly, irreversible chaos.
As the plots rocket to their pulse-pounding conclusion and the identities of the perpetrators are laid stunningly bare, Harvath will be left with only one means to save America. Unable to trust anyone, he will be forced to go Full Black.
Intense and frighteningly realistic, Full Black is, hands down, Brad Thor's most riveting thriller to date.
In this novel, it is an Islamic terror group, put together by the Chinese and co-opted by an evil Billionaire. That properly hits all the bad guys - Islamic Terror Groups, the Chinese, and of course the evil business folks. A bit trite, but Brad Thor seems to make it work.
I like the fact that Thor does his homework and has enough details to make his stories believable, so long as you don't over think them. For example he drops into the narrative superficial information on Tempest Products - those that block electrical emissions that could be used to eavesdrop on electrical devices. Yes, Tempest products have been around a long time - the first I saw were IBM electric typewriters back in the 1970's - they cost more than double the cost of a regular IBM, but had enough shielding to block out the electrical emissions. Other references seem to also be well researched. He does not go overboard with them, just drops a few in at appropriate points in the story.
He leaves us with a cliff hanger, which I am sure will lead directly into the next novel in this well written series.
It helps to have read the other books in the series, but unlike some authors, he gives just enough background to bring the reader up to speed, so they can enjoy this book, even if it is the first Scot Harvath novel they have read.
Stories only get better each time
I couldn't wait to get to the end but didn't want it to finish
Brad thor , when are they going to turn the books into movies?
