It’s been quite a while since I finished reading “State of the Union”, and reading this book was like visiting with an old friend.

BLOWBACK – Brad Thor

They are checking up on some Christian missionaries who haven’t been heard of but are startled to find half the village dead from a horrible, flu like disease with some very nasty symptoms.

Deep beneath an Alpine glacier, an ancient weapon designed to decimate the Roman Empire has been unearthed — and a shadowy organization intends to use it for America’s downfall.

He must also stop his arch enemy Khalid Sheik Alomari, a high-ranking al-Qaeda operative and ruthless assassin. I lose track of names, Saudi this, Muslim that. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

He’s not some kind of elitist. Apr 03, David rated it it was ok. The manner in which this story is told, with stories within the story, ie, switching to one part of the tale to another part wherein they climax toward the end, is a favorite method for me Non-Muslims are a wide group. Al Jazeera has captured him beating a poor, helpless Iraqi, not his nemesis Khalid Sheik Alomari, a superior and ruthless Al Qaeda assassin he has been tracking for months.

May 21, Keith Dickson rated it did not like it. This time about how Islamist blowack intend to rid the world of ever First off, I’d heard that Brad Thor wrote thrillers with a “Republican angle” and was a contributor to Glenn Beck. Scot kills Kalachka holding Hamal and remote detonator for building. She claims her father was Sherpa on original group that extracted Hannibal artifacts. Although wend it gets to the that point, the scenes, specially the action ones, are up to the challenge.

Blowback (Scot Harvath, book 4) by Brad Thor

Submitted 11 years 2 months ago by Karen. I was amazed that he would drag the woman, Jillian into all of the dangerous situations that he did. This time about bloback Islamist terrorists intend to rid the world of everyone who is not a true believer using an ancient technology that Hannibal intended to use on the Romans in B.

Want to Read saving…. Kalachka, pretending to be on same side, kills Leader and Emir. As he learns what is happening, so do we. I actually listened to it on Audible which made it come to life even more.

Everybody owes him something. Skorpion, aka Kalachka, believed ally, kills tolerant Muslim leader paying Rayburn to guard him, Emir, and wounds Horst blowbadk, maybe fatally. Scot retrieves Horst, feared dying. The overall synopsis of the book is brqd follows.

But now he wants the hero to continue to risk the fate of the world just so he can have the tgor of killing him slowly?

I have something else in mind for you. Harvath will save the world from destruction again—this time from an ancient Roman biological weapon the badie guys found in the Alps. 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.

This premise is interesting, but it lacks the action and stamina of the first books. The science and the history used in th 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. Brad Thor Movies are in the works. A host of new and intriguing characters keep the story fresh and thkr.


Review of ‘Blowback’ by Brad Thor

Harvath must go out alone and try to stop a deadly biological weapon from being distributed in America. If you get lucky occasionally some of these books can switch between the two categories seamlessly without affecting your overall enjoyment of any of the book.

Nov 08, Matt Odom rated it really liked it. I enjoyed learning of Scott Harvath’s newest mission and finding out how he takes care of business.

Caught live on Al Jazeera in an off-the-books operation, Scot Harvath’s career has been terminated and he is forced to go to ground as the president bows to pressure from a ruthless senator with her sights set on the White House. It is fascinating to think that some of Hannibal’s soldiers might have been preserved in ice along the route through the Alps. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

There are too many other quality writers in this space like Vince Flynn for me to waste any more time with this series. Without support from his government, Harvath must accept help from the Uncle of the kidnapped scientist whom he doesn’t trust and beautiful Molecular Biologist Jillian Alcott.

Abdullah makes Scot promise not to kill his son Hamal, so Scot shoots Hamal in kneecaps. Ripped from the Headlines, Thor delivers a chilling fast-paced plot that is both smart and frightening.
