    3.5 to 4 stars if Goodreads allowed half stars, I would have gone 3.5 I am kind of amazed that Brad Thor can write an entire book without too much ire thrown at the Middle East While his usual target is Islamic extremists, this time the bad guys are a little closer to home This is a good thing because the repetition of Muslim bad guys was getting a little old.All of that aside, this book was pretty entertaining For those who enjoy political thrillers, Thor is is a great author to check out 3.5 to 4 stars if Goodreads allowed half stars, I would have gone 3.5 I am kind of amazed that Brad Thor can write an entire book without too much ire thrown at the Middle East While his usual target is Islamic extremists, this time the bad guys are a little closer to home This is a good thing because the repetition of Muslim bad guys was getting a little old.All of that aside, this book was pretty entertaining For those who enjoy political thrillers, Thor is is a great author to check out Be aware, though, he leans quite conservative Makes Tom Clancy look liberal However, I felt like this book has less political commentary than some of his earlier books There is a lot of continuation of the overall story from previous books Because of this it may be hard to enjoy this book if you are not familiar with Scot Harvath and the usual cast of characters Note this book is not related to the Black List TV show.Warning Thor seems to enjoy writing about torture interrogation If this is something that makes you uncomfortable, he might be worth avoiding There are a few torture scenes in this book.The following is a spoiler worth reading if you don t mind spoilers or don t plan to read this book I am interested in what everyone thinks view spoiler On the cover of the book you can see parachuters in the letters As I was reading I kept wondering where the heck the parachuters were Finally, three people parachute on the very last page of the book Not that seeing people parachuting gives away a key point of the story, I just thought it seemed odd that a very small event that occurs at the very last moment of the book was featured on the cover Thoughts or other examples like this you have seen hide spoiler

    There is only one direct allusion to 1984 in Brad Thor s Black List, but an Orwellian world permeates every page Thor creates a terrifying scenario of what would happen if the government s data mining capabilities were turned on the American citizenry By chapter 20, I was ready to take down my Facebook page, dismantle my cell phone and move to a cave somewhere When one character, a cyber genius, begins describing street lights with the ability to record video and audio of all who pass by, There is only one direct allusion to 1984 in Brad Thor s Black List, but an Orwellian world permeates every page Thor creates a terrifying scenario of what would happen if the government s data mining capabilities were turned on the American citizenry By chapter 20, I was ready to take down my Facebook page, dismantle my cell phone and move to a cave somewhere When one character, a cyber genius, begins describing street lights with the ability to record video and audio of all who pass by, all the ways people can be tracked by the gadgets they already own and people being tagged with microchips like their pets, not to mention surreptitious eavesdropping capabilities through systems like OnStar in cars, Thor definitely raises eyebrows Most ominously, he begins the book with an author s note All of the technology contained in this novel is based on systems currently deployed, in the final stages of development, by the United States government and its partners He s able to sustain suspense throughout the thriller and he hasthan a few eccentric characters to keep steady interest This is definitely one for the conspiracy theorists, but great food for thought for the average reader

    You know, when you or I get into a car, we get into a car And about 999 out of a 1000 authors would just write they he she got into a car Good enough, lets move on to the action.Not good enough for Brad Thor Characters don t get into cars They transition into cars They also never resume an interrupted activity, like you or I would They transition back to what they were doing A chicken never crosses the road it transitions Considering the amount of time characters spend in this b You know, when you or I get into a car, we get into a car And about 999 out of a 1000 authors would just write they he she got into a car Good enough, lets move on to the action.Not good enough for Brad Thor Characters don t get into cars They transition into cars They also never resume an interrupted activity, like you or I would They transition back to what they were doing A chicken never crosses the road it transitions Considering the amount of time characters spend in this book blowing each others heads off, I m surprised Brad Thor just didn t write then BLAM Horvath transitioned his skull into a million pulpy etc That happens all the time in this book, and is an endless source of joy and contentment for Brad, positively gushing over one head shot after another, when not obsessed with the thrill of slitting throats, which are always described in a useful, how to kind of way Here using transition for shot kill murder slit blood etcwould have saved him a lot of time he could have better spent trying to master basic prose, or developing character out of cliches, or walking his dog, or writing one liners for Glen Beck Transition is clearly his favourite word, and the entertainment the reader derives from the endless variety of uses he puts it to almost compensates for the fact that Brad Thor is another of those total hacks that somehow have lucked into the magic formula to make the big time When his characters are not transitioning, and sometimes when they are, they live life until they re blown away in an endless series of acronyms When agents or ne erdowells look around to see if the coast is clear, they don t just look, like you or I would, they perform a PDQ or XYZ or Toys r Us or what the hell pardon me, since I listened to this in audio format I can t fetch up any specific passage, but will try to give the flavour and, after transitioning the ocular sockets to and fro, will then CRS the street, WLK up to the front door and RNG the bell Since virtually all the characters in this book are either military or intelligence personnel, this kind of stuff is absolutely inescapable, and if that isn t bad enough, our friend Brad isthan happy to bring the narrative to an absolute halt to explain what the latest mystery letters stand for Example Horvath Are you transitioning to the restaurant Cramer Only if it s a BYOB Thor A BYOB means bring your own bottle, which is the procedure agents use when trying to get smashed in a small or cheap eating establishment where the wine list, if any, consists of paltry and unappealing choices that.yada, yada, yada, yadaA real author would just let his characters get on with their lives and the story and cut out this kind of BS.Thor BS is the popular designation for Sorry, see what I mean Where were we

    A rather bleak picture of where our future is heading or one that has actually arrived Brad Thor states at the beginning all technology contained in his novel is based on systems currently deployed or in the final stages of development It is disquieting to realize how much spying is taking place on law abiding citizens Engrossing thriller and one of his finest.

    Just when I thought Thor s books couldn t get any better, he comes up with one that will make any reader paranoid In this novel, Harvath s colleagues have been burned and he s next on the list As he tries to find out why he discovers a plan that could destroy the country from within its borders and its government.The scary thing is that while reading this book and comparing it to recent news articles concerning security and Americans privacies I had to wonder just how close to reality is this Just when I thought Thor s books couldn t get any better, he comes up with one that will make any reader paranoid In this novel, Harvath s colleagues have been burned and he s next on the list As he tries to find out why he discovers a plan that could destroy the country from within its borders and its government.The scary thing is that while reading this book and comparing it to recent news articles concerning security and Americans privacies I had to wonder just how close to reality is this novel Thor describes issues such as apps that constantly keep track of where you are and let others know what you re doing, what Internet searches you do, and how those searches determine your personality and what advertisements to show you, using cards or data as toll passes, cameras in street lights that can allow your picture to be used in facial recognition, wiretapping, and the list seems to be unending The book asks when or how far are people willing to let things go on the assumption that it won t affect them as they ve done nothing wrong, and how soon will it be used for thought police that have been described in books and movies throughout history Those books, especially this one, and movies seem to be sofactual than fictional today.I couldn t put this book down and suggest you take a day, maybe 2, to read it and then see how many times you may be looking over your shoulder wondering just what or who is watching you

    I don t know why exactly I decided to read this It was recommended to me on Goodreads but I have never read any Brad Thor novels and I am admittedly turned off by heroes who think having a career going out murdering people for the military or government agencies like the CIA or other official thug groups is just fine as can be with the justification that the USA is the god of the universe and in charge of everything on the planet Surprisingly, I liked it I didn t like Scot at all but I enjo I don t know why exactly I decided to read this It was recommended to me on Goodreads but I have never read any Brad Thor novels and I am admittedly turned off by heroes who think having a career going out murdering people for the military or government agencies like the CIA or other official thug groups is just fine as can be with the justification that the USA is the god of the universe and in charge of everything on the planet Surprisingly, I liked it I didn t like Scot at all but I enjoyed a lot of characters like clever Caroline and her sister Nina and Nicholas the computer hacker dwarf with two huge dogs There was a lot of clever maneuvering and fast paced action including two older men who performed some amazing action and proved having gray hair doesn t mean you are useless This reminded me some of Robert Ludlum s Bourne books which he is still apparently writing years after he died The creepy thing is that the government really IS spying on us, reading all of our emails and listening in on all calls and have been able to do so under Bush s misnamed Patriot Act whereby the Republican types who claim to want smaller government proved they really want to spy on you and maybe waterboard you if the opportunity arises by the way, it did in this book It is real life abuse of citizens and Brad has shared some of his research on his site www.BradThor.com
