Review – “Full Black” by Brad Thor

Review – “Full Black” by Brad Thor

In my review of last year’s “Foreign Influence” by Brad Thor, I said the following:

 

If I have one criticism of the book it is that it reads like what it really is – a prologue.  The story is engaging, fast paced, and well written – but you can tell that it is essentially the foundation for a deeper and more far reaching narrative.

 

Tomorrow marks the release of that more far reaching narrative.  With “Full Black”, Thor pays off the promises found in “Foreign Influence” and delivers a thinking man’s thriller.  There’s plenty of action, military insight, and even more action – but there’s also a cogent political, social, and economic story woven into the fabric of the book.  Taking a step back and looking to the horizon, we find that while still dangerous, radical Islam is not the only enemy we face.  At times nuanced and at other times blunt, Thor pulls no punches in deconstructing the broader adversaries aligned against us in the world today. It’s a story about layers, and serves to lay the foundation for the continued evolution of both Thor as a storyteller and Scot Harvath as a character.

Review – “The Athena Project” by Brad Thor

I have become a fan of Brad Thor over the past few years.  Through his signature character, Scot Harvath, Thor has explored America’s intelligence and military apparatus and the threats that face us both at home and abroad.  He’s confronted political and social issues with a refreshing disregard for the prevailing opinions of today’s media and social elite.  He’s also written some terribly exciting and thought provoking books.  His latest, “The Athena Project”, is no exception.
