4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff!, 19 Aug 2014
This review is from: Act of War: A Thriller (Hardcover)
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS A HEART-POUNDING SPY THRILLER!, 8 July 2014
This review is from: Act of War: A Thriller (Hardcover)
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. Brad Thor has crafted an incredibly stunning thriller that involves special ops and counter-terrorism measures set in motion by the US Government since 9/11. Brad Thor creates an action-packed espionage and counter-terrorism thriller that will leave readers breathless with excitement and anticipation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true thriller, 14 July 2014
By 
John (Charleston, USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Act of War: A Thriller (Hardcover)
One can tell how much research and work has gone into writing this wonderfully, exciting and fascinating book. The descriptions are clever and well written, and the story is paced the right way to keep the reader turning one page after another until the end of the story. The overall presentation of intriguing and colorful characters, catch phrases, intrigues, a succinct plot, appropriate dialogue and a well-observed narrative gave this story its peculiarity. The style is rare, recently seen in Triple Agent Double Cross. I applaud Brad Thor for this wonderful work.
