From #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor, the explosive international thriller featuring Navy SEAL turned Homeland Security operative Scot Harvath, who somewhere, somehow, has left the wrong person alive.

Six months ago: in the dead of the night, five of the most dangerous detainees in the war on terror are pulled from their isolation cells in Guantanamo Bay, held at gunpoint, and told to strip off their orange jumpsuits. Issued civilian clothes and driven to the base airfield, they are loaded aboard a Boeing 727 and set free.

Present day: covert counterterrorism agent Scot Harvath awakens to discover that his world has changed violently—and forever. A sadistic assassin with a personal vendetta is wreaking havoc of biblical proportions. Unleashing nightmarish horrors on those closest to Harvath, the attacker thrusts everything Harvath holds dear—including his life—into absolute peril.

Ordered by the president to stay out of the investigation, Harvath is forced to mount his own operation to uncover the conspiracy and to exact revenge. When he discovers a connection between the attacks and a group of prisoners secretly released from Guantanamo, Harvath must ask himself previously unthinkable questions about the organizations and the nation he has spent his life serving.

A renegade from his own government, Harvath will place his life on the line as his search for the truth draws him into a showdown with one of the most dangerous men on the face of the earth.

Brad Thor roars through this nonstop adventure full of international intrigue, twisted betrayals, and ultimate revenge.

having randomly listened to 4 or 5 selected Brad Thor novels I found myself working on a swing stage and needing some entertainment so I decided to start from the beginning. I never left a rating for the first 6 books, but having listened to them all in order after listening to the first commandment I could happily never listen to another scott horvath book i feel the ending was so GREAT! i know i will, eventually... but this was such a good wrap up I'm nervous to continue... but i will...

Awesome book. The Harvath character is really great. I like how he is not superhuman and has flaws, makes mistakes, and how previous storylines are all tied in together.

Terrific listen. Great characters, story and narration, but the abridged version left me feeling a little short changed. I wish that I had rented the unabridged version and I recommend that you do so. It is well worth it.
