Full Black by Brad Thor
#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor brings readers his darkest and most intriguing thriller yet—a terrifying story of espionage and betrayal—brilliantly paced with superb nonstop action.
Born in the shadows and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don’t exist.
When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States.
With the CIA’s intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists’ network and prevent one of the biggest threats the United States has ever faced.
Simultaneously, a foreign wet work team has been sent to California. Their target: one of Hollywood’s most famous filmmakers.
While working on a secret documentary project, movie producer Larry Salomon has unknowingly exposed one of the world’s wealthiest and most politically connected powerbrokers—a man with a radical anti-American agenda poised to plunge the nation into deadly, irreversible chaos.
As the plots rocket to their pulse-pounding conclusion and the identities of the perpetrators are laid stunningly bare, Harvath will be left with only one means to save America. Unable to trust anyone, he will be forced to go Full Black.
Intense and frighteningly realistic, FULL BLACK is, hands down, Brad Thor’s most riveting thriller to date.
Another great read by Brad Thor
Fast paced, well thought out and precisely written. Always enjoyable character development of Scott and his network of allies and enemies.
James Standing = George Soros. Although this book is classified as fiction, it touches on some very real issues and movements that are ripping at our society. Great content, plot, and pace.
Ok, but not great
Too many reviewers state this is great, awesome, suspenseful, etc, or it is right wing anti-anyone-but-conservative trash. It's some of both. Thor really can weave a good story, but dips too much into banging a party-line drum here. It's a fun read, but the ending fell far short of the rest off the book. For so much of the book, things don't go well for the many protagonists (as in life), but the ending was just too "neat", and felt rushed, like a publishing deadline was coming and the manuscript was due. I really expected more from the last 3 chapters.
