Book Review: Hidden Order A Thriller by Brad Thor

Hidden Order Brad Thor

 

 

Scot Harvath book #12

 

Goodreads

 

The most secretive organization in America operates without accountability to the American people. Hiding in the shadows, pretending to be part of the United States Government, its power is beyond measure. Control of this organization has just been lost and the future of the nation has been thrust into peril.

When the five candidates being considered to head this mysterious agency suddenly go missing, covert counter-terrorism operative, Scot Harvath is summoned to Washington and set loose on the most dangerous chase ever to play out on American soil. But as the candidates begin turning up murdered, the chase becomes an all-too-public spectacle with every indicator suggesting that the plot has its roots in a shadowy American cabal founded in the 1700’s.

With the United States on the verge of collapse, Harvath must untangle a web of conspiracy centuries in the making and head off the greatest threat America has ever seen.

Brad has a way of making each thriller compelling and full of intrigue every time. Scot Harvath is one of my favorite operatives of the spy thriller literary world. When the nation is in a bind who wouldn’t send in Harvath? No brainer right?

While this isn’t my favorite thriller of the series, it still packs a quite a punch in the entertainment department. In the midst of the *save the nations* plot, there’s the dynamic relationship between Harvath and a unique Boston homocide detective. She’s bold, brilliant, determined and won’t take no for an answer. Just the right gal for a lone ranger like Harvath.

I’m plugging right along in this series to the next book, Act of War.

I’m seriously trying to catch up before the newest title, Use of Force, is released June 27, 2017. After Act of War, I’ll have to finish Code of Conduct and Foreign Agent, then will be caught up.

  1. Tom Clancy is my favorite, though he’s the only I’ve read so far. Is Brad Thor as good. I’ve fallen in love with Clancy’s writing since I’d received as a gift his book The Hunt for Red October.

      1. The Hunt for Red October is pretty good. It’s so realistic, that it earned the author a visit from the CIA. It’s Clancy’s first novel. I’ve read every book which features Jack Ryan, they are all good. Will check out Thor and Flynn, since Clancy’s death in 2013, I haven’t read anything in this genre.
