Navy SEAL turned covert operative Scot Harvath is called to action once again in Brad Thor's hottest political thriller yet.

Buried within the black ops budget of the Department of Defense, a new spy agency has been created. Unfettered by the oversight of self-serving politicians, it reports only to a secret panel of insiders. Its job is to target America's enemies--both foreign and domestic--under a charter of three simple words: Find, Fix, and Finish .

Recruited as a field operative, Scot Harvath has just returned from his first assignment abroad when a bombing in Rome kills a group of American college students. The evidence points to a dangerous colleague from Harvath's past, and Harvath is tasked with leveraging his relationship to lure the man out of hiding and destroy him. But what if he has the wrong man?

Simultaneously, a young woman is struck by a taxi in a hit-and-run in Chicago, and city police soon abandon their fruitless investigation. But when the family's attorney digs deeper, he uncovers a shocking connection to the Rome bombing and the perpetrators' plans for America. Tying together the disparate violence, Scot Harvath races to prevent one of the most audacious and unthinkable acts of terror in the history of mankind.

Page turner with a taut plot. The twists at the end were superb.

The action moves and is engaging but the constant and rabid anti-Islam editorializing by the characters and the author's tendency to over-describe and explain things becomes tedious. A good editing could have taken 80 pages out and made for a much better book.
