Foreign Influence: A Thriller
Scot Harvath kicks butt once again
I'll start my review by saying that I'm a Brad Thor fan, and have read all his books. In the past I've liked the Scot Harvath character because he was a no-holds-barred bad-ass, and embodied the balance between honor and vindictiveness that I always envisioned as a microcosm of America in general. That said, I'll move on to give Brad a true complement: In "Foreign Influence," he manages to ...
Republic: A Novel of America's Future
Cincinnatus Press, 2007
Good reading, sad story.
You can see the viewpoint from both sides in this book about a civil war in the near future. Some in this book are so devoted to misguided principles of "duty and honor" that they would turn against their lovers, brothers and kin to fight for an uncaring government in Washington. Fantasy? I don't think so.
Messages: Signs, Visits, and Premonitions from Loved Ones Lost on 9/11
A book that was hard to put down
I recently purchased this book and finished it within 4 days. I had great difficulty putting it down and now almost wished I had read it slower. I have had an interest in wanting to know how anyone who lost a loved one in the 911 tragedy was doing. While the bible states not to contact anyone who has passed on, I don't know that I would personally seek out anyone who can make contact with a ...

Little, Brown and Company, 2007
This new series by Patterson will take you for an amazing ride!
Step on a crack is the first in the series surrounding the Michael Bennett family. Michael is not your usual run of the mill detective. What might set Michael apart is first and foremost he is the father of ten adopted kids from ages 3 to 12.

When planes start dropping out of the sky and when people and their electronic equipment - computers and cellular phones - are baked and fried from a deadly energy pulse, the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, and the President of the United States discover they are helpless against their own technology, which has been commandeered by a group of terrorists and turned against them. Without any plausible ...
The Perfect Assassin
Oceanview Publishing, 2004
Extremely talented author
I was glad to have the opportunity to review this great thriller! Though he is not a new author, he was a new-to-me author and I was pleased with his work to bring forth a thriller that had thrills, adventure and fast paced mystery. It's more along the lines of an adventurous spy type novel. This is definitely one that, had I seen it in the store, would not have thought twice about buying it. ...
The First Commandment: A Thriller
Thor, Brad, author
Book came quickly in very good condition. All his books are good and fun to read.
The Last Patriot: A Thriller
Intense, Gripping - great read!
This is the first of Brad Thor's books I have read, but suffice it to say that I'm hooked and I'll be picking up other books by this author - his works are fresh - they're totally different than other authors I've read in the past, such as Cussler or Grisham! Thor has spun a tale that is filled with intrigue, scandal, and a lot of hair-raising suspense. Tying current affairs of America's ...
Kensington Publishing Corp, 2008
Okay, my first Britton will certainly not be my last
Synopsis A bomb is detonated in a Baghdad Hotel in an attempt to assassinate the Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq. More than 20 casualties, most of them security personnel and American reporters, are killed but the target survives. In Washington DC, with the elections about two months away, the White House and the CIA are scrambling to adopt the appropriate political spin on the events and up ...
Path of the Assassin: A Thriller
Brad Thor surpasses Clancy with this one IMHO
Brad Thor and his character Scott Harvath caught my attention a couple of years ago, and I have been working my way through the entire series. Path Of The Assassin is, in my opinion, the best yet. Harvath, former Naval SEAL and Secret Service agent, is pretty much on his own this time as he chases down a terrorist leader through North Africa, Europe and the United States. Author Dan Brown ...
St. Martin's Press, 2010
Dead Shot / Jack Coughlin
Good story teller, fast action. Understands sniper technics and weapons used. Story flows smoothly, I've read all of his books. Keep telling your storys Jack Coughlin.
The Midnight House
Putnam Adult, 2010
Berenson's best John Wells novel so far.... Could not put it down
Once again Alex Berenson has done a masterful job blending great story telling, his reporting experience with the New York Times and knowledge of the Middle East, producing what is arguably his best novel so far. The story line comes from the current headlines. A raid on a group of Jihadists in Pakistan yields several members of a group with connections to Al Qaeda. Instead of shipping the ...
Not the best
I'm a big Chuck P fan, but this one was not for me. I really enjoyed every other book he has read, but have not read snuff and could not finish invisible monsters.
Storm Warning: Whether global recession, terrorist threats, or devastating natural disasters, these ominous ...
Storm Warning by Dr. Billy Graham
Having lived for more than 90 years and preached the gospel around the world, Dr. Billy Graham brings a riveting perspective to the events of our times. However, it is not simply end times theology that Dr. Graham brings to us in this updated version of his book, but the urgent need for evangelism. The ever-closer return of Christ must set born again believers to the task to which we have been ...
Takedown: A Thriller
thinking like the enemy
Thor used to work for Homeland Security, and he definitely brings his deep knowledge of terrorist plans to his new line of work, novel writing. In Takedown, terrorists stage a massive coordinated attack on New York City during the Fourth of July weekend. Through the strategic placement of bombs they completely isolate Manhattan, then deploy smaller attacks in the crowd-filled streets. All this ...
Targets of Deception
action packed adventure
This book grabs you and holds you tight until the conclusion. Jordan Sandor was one of the best agents of the American Central Intelligence Agency when he quit in disgust. Despite the horror of the attacks on the twin towers on 9-11 and the subsequent push to tighten security and increase inter-agency cooperation, the bureaucratic mentality still reigns. Sandor had been on a mission to a small ...
The Looming Tower
A towering achievement
I cannot add anything significant to the existing reviews of this book. However, based on my own life experience, limited as it is, I must say that Mr. Wright has produced an enormously relevant and necessary work of real journalism and intelligence, the latter word being used for both of its primary meanings. All Americans and patriots should seek to understand what Mr. Wright has so ...
Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Sanction
Grand Central Publishing, 2008
Bourne never lets me down
Great book and series. Lustbader has picked up where Ludlum left off and continued a great series. One of the most suspenseful books of the series.

Risk No Secrets
There is "no risk" when you choose a Cindy Gerard book. When I see one of her books on a shelf, the only thing I check is to make sure I haven't already read it. Risk No Secrets is just like all the others--great! Loved the romance, the plot, the outcome. In my opinion Cindy Gerard is tops in this type of story. Christy Reece, Beverly Barton, and Cherry Adair are the other 4 authors that ...
