BLOWBACK – Brad Thor

Scott Harvath is a Navy SEAL turned tjor counter-terrorism agent who authorities turn to when the connections between these events start to become clear. So I like to read thrillers whenever I take a trip by plane.

The detail of the backstories and surrounding support material was really nice. No doubt about it, many of the the action scenes were exciting and well written, but the existence of the weapon and how it survived was brush stroke and questionable at best, the connection between the weapon and the intra-Muslim faith tensions too self-serving; and the various political conspiracies way too convenient.


The second and primary story line follows the plot of radical terrorists to decimate the US through an ancient hrad extremely deadly biohazard that will see all but true believers die a painful and horrible death as their brains turn to liquid. Brad Thor may have just created Mitch Rapp’s replacement, no offense or disrespect to Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series, I love that series just as much as this series.

Book Review of Blowback by Brad Thor at AustCrimeFiction

He is definitely not Vince Flynn bless his soul. With his strong, square jaw, solid nose, and broad forehead, the man’s face looked as if it had been chiseled from a solid block of granite. That is the plan. Babcock, born on this date inwould have enjoyed this one. It was never clear who was on what side or even how many sides there were to the story. Skorpion, aka Kalachka, believed ally, kills tolerant Muslim leader paying Rayburn to guard him, Emir, and wounds Horst badly, maybe fatally.

In many ways, even with the political subplots, this is a rather timeless story, which is pretty admirable. I finally realized I wasn’t forgetting names from before. I have also created an array of terrific bonus material for you at my web site BradThor.

I was a little skeptical when I started reading this book because recommendations for Brad Thor had come from people who also liked Brad Meltzer and Andrew Gross and I found their work to be less satisfying that I would have liked.
