Synopsis

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. 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-headlines 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.

About the Author

To say that New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor is a most interesting person would be an understatement. He has accomplished many things since his graduation from the University of Southern California, where he studied writing, film, and television production. Before he began writing his very successful and quite lengthy list of novels, he was the award winning producer of the PBS series, Traveling Lite. After beginning his career as a novelist, he has been given the distinction of being an American thriller novelist. His most current books, Act of War and Code of Conduct have been given very high critical acclaim. Along with his busy writing career, he is also a 2016 Independent Presidential candidate.

Thor is a member of the well-known conservative think tank group, The Heritage Foundation, and has spoken during their meetings on a subject of which he is very passionate......a strong missile defense system. Thor is a frequent guest on news programs and also Glenn Beck and The Blaze. He is frequently commenting on the subject of terrorism, and is commonly asked how his novels rate for accuracy in covering terrorist issues. He reportedly traveled with a Black ops team in Afghanistan to give accurate descriptions of the conflicts in his book, The Apostle. Glenn Beck once gave an ominous prediction that Thor could potentially be the object of assassination by Muslim extremists because of the content of his book The Last Patriot. That novel was nominated for "Best Thriller Novel of the Year" by the International Thriller Writer's Association.

Thor lives in Nashville. He recently made negative, speculative comments about Donald Trump.......comments which he has since dialed back. Warner Brothers purchased the rights to the Scot Harvath series of thrillers and Thor's The Athena Project, with intentions to develop movie franchises for themselves.
