Description

“Raw emotion, nonstop action, and relentless pacing makes Backlash another one-night read from Brad Thor, who delivers the book to beat in 2019.” —The Real Book Spy

#1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 Publishers Weekly bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most gripping thriller yet!

In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back.

They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai.

Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins.

One man is all three.

Two days ago, that man was crossed—badly.

Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out.

With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive.

But survival isn’t enough. Harvath wants revenge.

In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, page after captivating page of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence.

    This book though very different from Mr. Thor usual books is just as good as any of the others. The storyline of survival is excellent, plenty of action and always enjoy reading about Eastern Europe. Finland is as wild as Mr. Thor describes. He does an excellent job of describing the hardship and beauty of the country. While hiking around Mont Blanc in 2010 I met a lady from Finland whose fathers job was that of the village hunter. He would get the meat for the village. Have read all his books and have thoroughly enjoyed everyone.

    Ok, it wasn’t a bad book and the writing was decent, but this book was 98% about survival, not revenge. The little that was written about revenge, at the end of the book, was anticlimactic, bland, dull. It’s almost as if the author remembered that there was supposed to be some form of revenge in the book and rushed to add it in. After everything that Harvath had lost and endured, the method and payback were rudimentary. It was too simplistic. Too easy. There was no challenge. It left you wanting so much more.
