The Apostle

Author: Brad Thor

Brad Thor’s “The Apostle” grabs the reader from the beginning and doesn't let go...until the end! A new administration and a new approach to dealing with America's enemies have left covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath without a job. But when an American doctor is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the terms of her ransom leave the president with only one course of action, Scot Harvath!

In a dangerous assignment that the United States government will deny any knowledge of, Harvath must secretly infiltrate a notorious prison in Kabul (Afghanistan) and free the man – an al-Qaeda mastermind -- the kidnappers demand as ransom. But when Harvath arrives, he quickly learns that there is more to the kidnapping than what he was told. And as the plan/assignment is exposed, Harvath must examine if hunting down and killing terrorists is what he should be doing and whether he should help one of the world's worst extremists go free after uncovering the truth about this ‘government deniability assignment.’

This tale was one of Thor’s best. It was intriguing, suspenseful, and mesmerizing. From Harvath’s typical ‘badassery’ to the U.S. Secret Service’s side story, to the mega wealthy’s power grab, all culminating in one melodramatic ending...this was one invigorating novel! I couldn't stop reading it until the end...!

This was Thor at his best, great plot, enchanting characters, and an explosive and gripping ending. Everything an action thriller should be. I really liked The Apostle! It’s one of my Brad Thor favorites…
