From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor--a brilliant thriller as "current as tomorrow's headlines."

Terrorism in Europe has spun out of control. The United States has decided on a dramatic response. Now, the CIA needs a very special kind of operative.

Scot Harvath has exactly the skills the CIA is looking for. He's a former U.S. Navy SEAL with extensive experience in espionage. Working for a private intelligence company, he will provide the CIA, and more important, the President, with absolute deniability.

But deep within the Russian Caucasus, Moscow also has its own special kind of operative. As a child, Sacha Baseyev endured an unimaginable horror. Today, he lives and breathes for only one reason--to kill. And he will kill as many Americans as it takes to accomplish his mission.

When a clandestine American operations team is ambushed near Syria, all signs point toward a dangerous informant in Brussels. But as Harvath searches for the man, he uncovers another actor--a rogue player hell-bent on forcing America's hand and drawing it into a confrontation deadlier than anyone could have imagined.

As the attacks mount, and terror is brought to the very doorstep of the White House, Harvath finds himself in the race of his life. From Vienna, Brussels, and Berlin, to Malta, Jordan, and Syria--he will push himself beyond the edge in order to confront one of the greatest evils the world has ever known.

Filled with action, intrigue, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, Foreign Agent is a nonstop thrill ride that reaffirms Thor's position as the "master of thrillers."

great book overall the only problem is after the attack in the beginning for about 5 or so chapters it was pretty boring but if you forget about all of that then it was a pretty good read!

Chock full of irrelevant details and the usual American anti-Russian propaganda and boring gun talk -- to the point where I kept losing the thread of the actual story. It started out okay, but as it wore on, it became an effort to bother turning the page. Not recommended.

Decent read. It's a Thor read, same characters, current events locations. Ho-hum.
