I am still working through Brad Thor’s Scott Harveth Series. I just wrapped up part four (titled Blowback).
An intriguing beginning indeed. The first page reads, “Hannibal is at the gates.”
As far as the book itself, I was disappointed overall. Honestly, I probably began this installment with too high of expectations. I had read on several sites that this was Thor’s best work yet. It wasn’t. The “Bond girl” concept is getting old. I hope the use of a new lady-sidekick in each book does not continue in future releases. However, this book was probably the most unique. I felt that Blowback was very Dan Brown-esque. Mystery over thriller. He tried to implant more clues than action. But it did not really work for him.
My ranking (to date) of Thor’s books….
That being said, I still enjoyed this “brainless fiction”. I can’t wait to read part five while vacationing on the Oregon Coast . . . .
