Publisher's Summary

From Brad Thor, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Code of Conduct, comes a lightning-paced short story, pitting Scot Harvath against a threat unlike any he's faced before....

A deadly betrayal is at the center of The Athens Solution. When a game-changing weapon falls into the wrong hands, the US ambassador to Greece must risk everything to recover it, even if it means participating in a ruse that costs his life. With the ambassador dead and the device still at large, covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath rushes to eliminate a terror cell about to sell the dangerous technology to Iran. As the sun sets on the Aegean Sea, Harvath must go head to head with a traitorous adversary in a confrontation that puts the fate of America and her allies at risk.

Originally published in the short story anthology Thriller, The Athens Solution has been revised and includes a brand-new bonus afterword. This riveting addition to the Scot Harvath thrillers delivers all the pulse-pounding action and high stakes fans have come to know and love from Brad Thor. Without a doubt, The Athens Solution will leave fans hungry for more!

Brad Thor should stick to writing novels...

...rather than short stories. This (very) short story is written by one of my favorite authors. The audiobook is 63 minutes and it includes the short story, some discussion by the author, and a chapter from one of his novels. The actual short story is very short indeed.

This audiobook is disappointing coming from an author as talented as Brad Thor.

Disappointing for Brad Thor

I understand that some writers enjoy writing short stories, but I must say, it feels like it’s all about the money, not the passion of writing. To charge $1.98 for less than 1/2 hour, it’s all about the money. The description says 1 hour 3 minutes , but it’s actually less than 30 minutes of the book and the rest is Brad Thor talking about his love of short stories (Right) and the a preview of a previous book I’ve already read. I refuse to order anymore short stories. Very disappointed! Larry S Reno, NV.

Paid for what??????

Can't believe I used a full credit on nothing more than an article. I need to pay more attention to the story stats.

Short story action!

How does one fight against greed? Scot Harvath is going to try and find out. The islands of Greece are more treacherous than one realizes especially under sniper fire.

Brad Thor definitely left me wanting more from this one. Fast paced action hope there is a part 2 in the future.

Better narrator is needed

After listening to 3 books narrated by Bronson Pinchot, I was very disappointed with the lack of narration character depth for this book. So much so that I'm choosing not to invest in Audible selections by Brad Thor using this narrator. Very disappointed.

Was there a point?

What would have made The Athens Solution better?

What was the purpose of this short story, to show that Harvath is fallible? That was a given.Otherwise, it just felt like a mental exercise for Thor.

Better named Book 14.01

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Not a chance bough the book expecting a one hour story.

What could Brad Thor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It was more of a commercial to buy more if his books.

How could the performance have been better?

See above

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

See above

Any additional comments?

May be the last for me

Short but Sweet

Would LOVE to have a full blown story. Loved It. It was fast and the twists were tantalizing and provacative. DISH Brad gives some more, gives us the rest of the story ...
