Brad Thor’s eleventh novel in his popular Scot Harvath series “Black List” is packed with furious action and a believable plot.
Scot Harvath. while returning from a mission, is ambushed at a safe house in Paris and barely escapes with his life, while his partner is killed. He soon learns that many of his fellow operatives for Carlton have also been wiped out. Carlton is also on the run. Someone has put out a hit order on Harvath.
During another attack on Harvath, he learns from one of his attackers that he has been put on a Black List, a list of traitors to the United States. Who put Harvath on this list? Why is he being targeted? Who is out to get Carlton and what is ATS planning.
These are some of the questions that Harvath, Carlton and the Troll must answer in this fast read from Brad Thor, who increases the tension by having kill squads chase Harvath, the Troll and Carlton and making them the hunted, until they can turn the tables on their pursuers.
Its a good quick read and shows that Brad Thor has not lost his touch.
