Book Description

The new Scot Harvath thriller and the follow-up to Hidden Order, from New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor.

After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There's just one problem - no one knows if she can be trusted. But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion.

With the United States facing an imminent and devastating attack, America's new president must turn to covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath to help carry out two of the most dangerous operations in the country's history.

Code-named 'Gold Dust' and 'Blackbird', they are shrouded in absolute secrecy as either of them, if discovered, will constitute an act of war.
Look out for the adrenaline-fuelled new Brad Thor novel, Code of Conduct, published in July 2015!

4.0 out of 5 stars A HEART-POUNDING SPY THRILLER! 8 July 2014
The thirteen Scot Harvath book in the series, Act of War by #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor is an engrossing espionage thriller in which United States planted a NOC secret agent in China to spy on suspicious activities that could threaten its security. The death of the agent brings to light the existence of an operation in progress code-named Snow Dragon which is known only to a few key individuals in the Chinese government. Its objective is to destabilize the United States. Knowing its limited strength and capability, China is using nefarious means to thwart America’s progress and defeat it at all cost. Apart from poisoning food and water through chemical and biological means, it is indulging in subverting its power grids leading to total collapse, and bringing about chaos in the cities. China’s grandiose but sinister design could well succeed unless a counter-measure is launched.

The United States set in motion two operations code-named Blackbird and Gold Dust through the direct involvement of top-level officials, the Director of National Intelligence and the Secretary of Defense. These secret operations are aimed at foiling any attempt to subvert or attack the country. The United States President turns to counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath to help carry out the two most dangerous operations in the country’s history. While one operation will directly involve Harvath, the other operation will see a group secretly dropped into North Korea. The mission is top-secret and if it ever comes to light it will have serious repercussions. And failure is not an option either.

Act of War by Brad Thor strikes is a heart-pounding spy thriller that will strike at the hearts of readers with the devastating 9/11 attacks still clear in memory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff! 19 Aug. 2014
Brad Thor - with a name like that he has to be a card-carrying gun-toting Republican who contributes to the Tea Party and is armed at all times!

But....he writes very well, the story flows and tho' it is - er - a bit far fetched, it all could happen - I suppose! The hero is a combination of James Bond and Jason Bourne, but it all works very well.

He writes a lot of good sense, and his political opinions are very sensible. In this silly "politically correct" world, he bucks the trend - keep it up! Be a good guy to have a few beers with!

He falls a bit into the "America the Beautiful/Greatest Peoples and Nation of all time" category - and like the Romans, the rest of the Planet are "lesser beings" - but all in all it was a good fun book and I enjoyed it. Like Tom Clancy, He obviously knows a lot of military/techie people, and his research is very good indeed.

It is the first Brad-book I have read, but it will not be the last!
