Book Review – State of the Union – Brad Thor

America”s worst nightmare has just become a brutal reality. The most unlikely terrorist enemy of all now holds a knife against the country”s throat. With both diplomatic and conventional military options swept from the table, the president of the United States calls upon America”s only hope, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath.

With the fragile peace between the world”s nations shattered, Harvath must unravel a brilliantly orchestrated, fiendishly timed conspiracy intent upon bringing the United States to its knees. Teamed with beautiful Russian Intelligence agent Alexandra Ivanova and a highly trained CIA paramilitary detachment, Harvath races from the corridors of power in Washington, D.C., to the streets of Berlin, the coast of Finland, and into the heart of Mother Russia herself before returning home for a final showdown with an enemy from America”s past more sinister and deadly than has ever been seen before….

Ho hum, I should have guessed from the quote by Dan Brown on the cover. Long winded plots with the “beautiful Russian Intelligence agent” appearing in less than a 1/3 of the book. Sure it has its dramatic parts but just not a stunningly good read. Not enough to make me by another Brad Thor book just yet.

    I have read all of Brad’s book’s, and obviously we disagree whole heartedly on this one. I guess we just have different tastes in books. I recommend it to all my friends.
    I hope you don’t give up on Brad Thor just yet. He is my favorite author. And I have found all his books very well researched and very entertaining, as a matter of fact my wife just started reading Thor and she is on book #3 in under a month, so I think there are plenty of folks out there that will like the books.

    Thanks for the space to comment
