Overview

This Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition contains an extra chapter.

#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.

Good book. Needed more in depth of the retribution process. Should’ve been 50/50. But still enjoyed it.

Brad Thor is one of the best authors around, in any genre, but especially the thriller with international intrigue. Backlash is my new favorite from Mr. Thor. A great read!

Thor does his homework. You can follow Harvath’s trails on real maps, to real places. And the details of Scot’s actions and why he does what he does are totally convincing. The book reads like a real life report, not a made-up story line.

In BACKLASH, a Brad Thor fan recognizes the opening scenario with shock and it's a roller coaster ride of survival from there. Plane/helo crashes, wolves at the door, emotionally & physically beaten, it's survival mode en extremis. The fan empathizes with the protagonist- can feel the ice crystals and numbing arctic cold. It is quintessential Harvath, who climbs out of the abyss and finds a solution to every problem. He never gives up; he never gives in. Rage is the empowerment fuel. The reader will see Old Hands on deck, all with one thought-Harvath would risk all to come for them and as family, they aren't leaving him behind enemy lines. Harvath captures the true essence of the Navy SEAL, and of all today's warriors,including clandestine services It is a story of grit, determination, a fight every step of the way with a stunning kill ratio. This is justice, not revenge. And the finale is poetic justice. Superbly written by a master. Emotional too-the parting scene with Lara's son Marco, his stepson, leaves readers with a tear in eyes. Thor reaches a new level, exploring the visceral emotions of a man who has lived his life on the edge for country, friends, and family. This is a story of a warrior thrown into the abyss who rises above the challenges to survive. It's Thor at his best! Scot Harvath will return for another terrific romp thru hell. Thor pays homage I think to the SEALs in this story, he honors all the Teams and clandestines and acknowledges those pilots, PJs and support staff for their ever ready assistance throughout the world. I've read the bios of SEALs and the Teams and their code for living and code for dying. Harvath sums it up by saying "It wasn't about money, or medals, or fame. It was about loyalty, friendship, and honor." BACKLASH is a powerful salute to our nation's best! KUDOS BRAD THOR. IT'S SUPERB!

I am old and my eyes get tired easily, but a good read cures that ailment. It had me from hello and I could not put it down. Thank you for your powerful story telling and writing.

Brad Thor has hit another one "out of the park!" Backlash has everything, including incredible grief, shock, bravery, persistence, total loyalty (well deserved), and very satisfying and fitting revenge! Also, the villains were revealed as completely evil, as President Reagan recognized when he called them the "Evil Empire!" Thank you, Brad Thor!

Apex thriller of the summer! Thor breaks from reader expectations and delivers an epic Scot Harvath as we've never seen him before. This installment of the series includes all the spycraft, blackops, spent brass, and global politics readers know and love, then surprises with loss and tenderness driving the story where it must go. It aint over until it's over---stow your hopes for an early night's sleep. Gear up with night optics because you're going downrange with the best in the biz!

I loved the book but so sad to read the end of the "old man". The problem I see now is waiting for the next book.
