Usual good read from Brad Thor and usual tough/smart guy Scott Harvath as the major character. The story line is interesting and creative. As always, Harvath and gang get themselves into serious messes and get out of them with creative, though sometimes improbable, means. One thing I really like about Thor's Harvath character is that the text often displays his thinking patterns and introspection on both options for action and post-option reflection on what went wrong and how he could have fixed it. Good read as always from Thor. Enjoy!

I had picked up this book because it was on multiple lists of top books of 2017. I stopped reading at page 99 (which I never do) because I was disappointed: the writing just seemed superficial/lazy. Books can be easy reads without being this superficial.
