Racing across Europe, Harvath must secure the ultimate instrument of destruction before it brings the United States and the rest of the world to its knees. Donald Ellyson tried to scream, but nothing happened. He had done a lot of reprehensible things in his fifty-five years, but this was not how he had expected to die—his throat sliced and hot blood running down the front of his parka. This was supposed to be the discovery of his life, the one that would legitimize him and land him at the top of the academic heap.

Review : This is the fourth in the Scot Harvath series. I read the first three last year and then took a big break. These books are not easy reading. But I have enjoyed all four books in this series. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it. But as I stated above, Mr. They definitely take a lot more concentration to get through. So with everything going on in my life, I am pleasantly surprised that I was able to get through this book as quickly as I did. However, I am very glad that I decided to pick this book back up when I did.
Because I found it to be a very exciting read. I sometimes struggle with books that have terrorist aspects. There were a few times throughout the book that I struggled to understand what was going on, but that was always when they were discussing the weapon that is at the heart of the plot. As I stated earlier, this is the fourth book in the series. While I always prefer to read books in order, I do not think that it would be a requirement for this book.
I felt as if it could have read as a stand-alone just as well. Thor has managed to make him quite appealing in my opinion. And it was in this particular installment that the reader really gets to see that Scot may be regretting not being settled down. Another thing that I like about these books is that Mr. Thor always seems to have a very strong female secondary character.
This complements Scot quite well. And it also fits my tastes perfectly. I hate the whole damsel in distress thing, so I enjoy seeing Scot interact with women who are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves. Overall, while these books may not be for everyone, I enjoy them quite a lot and would definitely recommend them.
