Publisher's Summary

“Raw emotion, nonstop action, and relentless pacing makes Backlash another one-night read from Brad Thor, who delivers the book to beat in 2019.” (The Real Book Spy)

Number one New York Times, number one Wall Street Journal, and number one Publishers Weekly best-selling author Brad Thor is back with his most gripping thriller yet!

In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back.

They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai.

Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins.

One man is all three.

Two days ago, that man was crossed - badly.

Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out.

With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive.

But survival isn’t enough. Harvath wants revenge.

In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, minute after captivating minute of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence.

dusappointing

I love reading Brad Thor's work for the action involving spying and intelligence. This book was three-quarters about Harvarh's struggle to survive which wasn't at all interesting. Thor's previous novels are much better.

Time for Brad Thor & Scot Harvath to retire.

I swore that I would not read any more Thor novels as the Scot Harvath character had become a joke of a "special operator". His last novel, Spycatcher, was just silly - would someone please chop up the dwarf and feed the remains to those damn dogs, . but this plot was even more ridiculous. All the Russians are dumb and their special forces are so amateur that Scot can take two of them out by stringing some wire in front of their ski-doos. Oh yeah, that is believable. But its par for the course now and its why this is definitely the last Thor novel I will ever read.
