From #1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 Publishers Weekly bestselling author, Brad Thor, comes Blowback.

Scot Harvath’s counterterrorism career has just crashed and burned—thanks in part to a ruthless senator with her sights set on the White House. But when the war on terror takes a chilling turn, the president has no choice but to secretly bring Harvath back inside. Deep beneath an Alpine glacier, an ancient weapon designed to decimate the Roman Empire has been unearthed—and a shadowy organization intends to use it for America’s downfall. Racing across Europe, Harvath must secure the ultimate instrument of destruction before it brings the United States and the rest of the world to their knees.

Front flap:

Every politician has a secret.  And when the daughter of a politically connected family is kidnapped abroad, America's new president will agree to anything - even a deadly and ill-advised rescue plan - in order to keep his secret hidden.

"Quite possibly the next coming of Robert Ludlum."
- Chicago Tribune

Master of suspense and #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor returns with his most riveting international thriller yet.


A new administration and a new approach to dealing with America's enemies have left covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath without a job.  But when American doctor Julia Gallo is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the terms of her ransom leave the president with only one course of action.

In a dangerous assignment that the United States government will deny any knowledge of, Scot Harvath must secretly infiltrate Kabul's notorious Policharki Prison and free the man the kidnappers demand as ransom - al-Qaeda mastermind Mustafa Khan.

But when Harvath arrives, he quickly learns that there is more to the kidnapping than anyone dares to admit.  And as the subterfuge is laid bare, Harvath must examine his own career of hunting down and killing terrorists, and ask himself if he has what it takes to help one of the world's worst go free.

Brimming with the kind of ripped-from-the-head-lines authenticity Brad Thor's internationally bestselling novels are known for, The Apostle doubles down on the blockbuster success of The Last Patriot and reaffirms Thor's status as the master of the political thriller.

BRAD THOR


Navy SEAL turned covert operative Scot Harvath is called to action once again in Brad Thor's hottest political thriller yet.

Buried within the black ops budget of the Department of Defense, a new spy agency has been created.  Unfettered by the oversight of self-serving politicians, it reports only to a secret panel of insiders.  Its job is to target America's enemies - both foreign and domestic - under a charter of three simple words: Find, Fix, and Finish.

Recruited as a field operative, Scot Harvath has just returned from his first assignment abroad when a bombing in Rome kills a group of American college students.  The evidence points to a dangerous colleague from Harvath's past and a plan for further attacks on an unimaginable scale.

Harvath is tasked with leveraging his relationship to lure the man out of hiding and kill him on the spot.  But what if he has the wrong man?

Simultaneously, a young woman is struck by a taxi in a hit-and-run in Chicago.  With only two intoxicated witnesses and more than five thousand cabs in the city, the Chicago Police have given up on their investigation.  But when the family's attorney digs deeper, he will uncover a shocking connection to the bombing in Rome and the perpetrators' plans for America.

As the story rockets to its conclusion, the plots intersect in a race to prevent one of the most audacious and unthinkable acts of terror in the history of mankind.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor returns with his most explosive thriller ever.

Somewhere deep inside the United States government is a closely guarded list.  Members of Congress never get to see it - only the President and a secret team of advisers.  Once your name is on the list, it doesn't come off... until you're dead.

Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath's name.

Somehow Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has targeted him and why they want him out of the way.

Somewhere, someone, somehow can put all the pieces together.  The only question is, will Harvath get to that person before the United States suffers the most withering terrorist attack ever conceived?

An intense, page-turning novel that is action-packed and frighteningly real, Black List blurs the line between fiction and reality and once again reaffirms why Brad Thor "is arguably the best thriller writer of our time" (Suspense Magazine) and "America's favorite author" (KTTX).

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor returns with his hottest and most action-packed thriller yet!

The most secretive organization in America operates without any accountability to the American people.  Hiding in the shadows, pretending to be part of the United States government, its power is beyond measure.

Control of this organization has just been lost and the future of the nation thrust into peril.  When the five candidates being considered to head this mysterious agency suddenly go missing, covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath is summoned to Washington and set loose on the most dangerous chase ever to play out on American soil.

But as the candidates begin turning up murdered, the chase becomes an all-too-public spectacle, with every indicator suggesting that the plot has its roots in a shadowy American cabal founded in the 1700s.

With the United States on the verge of collapse, Harvath must untangle a web of conspiracy centuries in the making and head off the greatest threat America has ever seen.

This is thriller writing at its absolute best, where the stakes have never been higher, nor the line between good and evil so hard to discern.

UNABRIDGED

FOREIGN AGENT
by Brad Thor

Terrorism in Europe has spun out of control.  The United States has decided on a dramatic response.
Now, the CIA needs a very special kind of operative.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor - A brilliant thriller as "current as tomorrow's headlines."


Scot Harvath has exactly the skills the CIA is looking for.  He's a former U.S. Navy SEAL with extensive experience in espionage.  Working for a private intelligence company, he will provide the CIA, and more important, the President, with absolute deniability.
But deep within the Russian Caucasus, Moscow also has its own special kind of operative.  As a child, Sacha Baseyev endured an unimaginable horror.  Today, he lives and breathes for only one reason - to kill.  And he will kill as many Americans as it takes to accomplish his mission.

When a clandestine American operations team is ambushed near Syria, all signs point toward a dangerous informant in Brussels.  But as Harvath searches for the man, he uncovers another actor - a rogue player hell-bent on forcing America's hand and drawing it into a confrontation deadlier than anyone could have imagined.

As the attacks mount, and terror is brought to the very doorstep of the White House, Harvath finds himself in the race of his life.  From Vienna, Brussels, and Berlin, to Malta, Jordan, and Syria - he will push himself beyond the edge in order to confront one of the greatest evils the world has ever known.

Filled with action, intrigue, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, Foreign Agent is a nonstop thrill ride that reaffirms Brad Thor's position as the "master of thrillers."

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Brad Thor, hailed as the "Master of Thrillers" (BookReporter.com) and the "Ultimate Thriller Writer" (Suspense Magazine), returns with a masterpiece of action, intrigue, and betrayal.

A rumor, a remote cabin in Norway, and an American intelligence operative charged with stopping the next world war before it begins - Scot Harvath's mission is one of the deadliest he has ever undertaken.

Across Europe, a secret organization has begun attacking diplomats.  Reminiscent of the Red Brigades and the Red Army Faction of the 1970s, these faceless terrorists appear to have the same goals.  But in the shadowy realm of international espionage, looks are always deceptive.

As a prelude to war, one of the world's most dangerous intelligence agencies has been charged with preparing the battlefield.  Their job - to demoralize the enemy and win the conflict before it even begins.  To do so, they will sow as much chaos, dissent, and destruction as possible.  There's only one obstacle standing in their way.

Dispatched to Europe, Scot Harvath and his team have been tasked with a critical assignment - to do whatever it takes to keep America and her NATO allies from being dragged into war.

But with his mentor out of the game, Harvath must play an additional role; one which he has spent his entire career avoiding, and one which he believes he is ill prepared to take on.  In his most important operation ever, will he be able to thread this perilous needle?  Or, will it end up being the downfall of America and the West?

"Raw emotion, nonstop action, and relentless pacing makes Backlash another one-night read from Brad Thor" --The Real Book Spy

#1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 Publishers Weekly bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most gripping thriller yet!


In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back.

They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai.

Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins.

One man is all three.

Two days ago, that man was crossed--badly.

Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out.

With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive.

But survival isn't enough. Harvath wants revenge.

In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, page after captivating page of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence.
