Synopsis

In a daring and chilling debut, 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 unthinkable has just become a nightmarish reality: thirty Secret Service agents have been viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States kidnapped by one of the most lethal terrorist organizations in the Middle East -- the Fatah Revolutionary Council. But surviving agent and ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath doesn't believe the Fatah Revolutionary Council is responsible for the attack. Driven by his professional code of duty and honor, Harvath creates his own rules to get some answers. But his search for the truth raises the blood pressure of his superiors...and casts his own life in mortal jeopardy. The deadly machinations have been set in motion by a shadowy coalition, comprising some of the highest-ranking officials in government and business -- men who operate above the law, men who realize the threat Harvath poses to their hidden agenda...men who will do anything to stop him. Framed for murder and on the run, Harvath takes his own brand of justice to the towering mountains of Switzerland where he finds an improbable ally in the beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney's Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus -- and enter the den of the most notorious team of professional killers the world has ever known.

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.
