Path of the Assassin by Brad Thor
read by Armand Schultz
Brad Thor's national best-selling debut, The Lions of Lucerne, was hailed as "high-voltage entertainment reminiscent of Robert Ludlum" (Literary Journal). Now, he again delivers a non-stop action as one man's quest for revenge thrusts him into a battle to save his country....
After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing, or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points toward one man -- the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Having assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America, Harvath and his CIA-led team must reach Nidal before it's too late. One problem remains -- they have no idea what the man looks like. With no alternative, Harvath is forced to recruit a civilian -- a woman who has survived a brutal hijacking and is now the only person who can positively identify their quarry.
From the burning deserts of North Africa to the winding streets of Rome, Harvath must brave a maelstrom of bloodshed and deception -- before a madman's twisted vision engulfs the world in the fires of all-out war....
My Take: After about 4 hours of listening to this book I gave my self permission to stop. I was not enjoying this book and I have so many other books waiting to listen to that I decided to stop. Will pick this book up again? I doubt it.
I love action adventure type of books and find them great to listen too but I have to get to care about the characters and what happens to them. I just couldn't care that much about Scott Harvath. Maybe it is because this was the second in the series and I hadn't read the first one.
Many people have loved this book here and here are reviews from Goodreads and Audible. Most are positive but a few are like me and didn't like it. I would encourage you to read the reviews and make your own choice.
I did think that the narrator did a good job with the material.
I was given a review audio copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from Simon and Schuster Audio.
