“Raw emotion, nonstop action, and relentless pacing makes Backlash another one-night read from Brad Thor, who delivers the book to beat in 2019.” —The Real Book Spy
#1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 Publishers Weekly bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most gripping thriller yet!
In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back.
They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai.
Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins.
One man is all three.
Two days ago, that man was crossed—badly.
Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out.
With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive.
But survival isn’t enough. Harvath wants revenge.
In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, page after captivating page of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence.
Backlash may refer to: Backlash (engineering), clearance between mating components Backlash (sociology), a strong adverse reaction to an idea, action, or object Backlash (pressure group), a UK group opposing the 2008 law criminalising possession of "extreme pornography"..
Methodical, predictable, yawn... 15
I’ve read them all and this is one of the best. Enjoy!!! 55
In this, Brad Thor picks up from the unmitigated tragedy at the end of his last book. It is different from others as Harvath spends nearly the whole narrative as very disadvantaged prey. He must deal with the psychological impact of the immediate horrific losses he witnessed to must master himself to survive and respond. Exciting throughout. 55
Backlash is Brad Thor’s best Scot Harvath novel to date. Fast-paced, action-packed, and hard to put down. Mr. Thor struck a perfect balance throughout the story between frustrating conflict and satisfying resolution. If you’re a Scot Harvath fan, I think you’re really gonna like this 👊🏻 55
I always enjoy reading the latest Harvath adventure but it would be nice to see his adventure take place somewhere outside of Europe. Asia seems like an obvious location for espionage giving the rise of China. 45
Excellent work!! 55
Awesome awesome awesome. I need more!!! Hope the next one is on its way soon! 55
This book though very different from Mr. Thor usual books is just as good as any of the others. The storyline of survival is excellent, plenty of action and always enjoy reading about Eastern Europe. Finland is as wild as Mr. Thor describes. He does an excellent job of describing the hardship and beauty of the country. While hiking around Mont Blanc in 2010 I met a lady from Finland whose fathers job was that of the village hunter. He would get the meat for the village. Have read all his books and have thoroughly enjoyed everyone. 55
Excellent book. Action all the way. From near death to victory and revenge. 55
