This was the second book, a sequel, I read by Brad Thor. I enjoyed this book immensely. It kept me on edge from the very beginning, all the way to the end. I was glad I happened to read Takedown prior to this as that was the beginning of the story. I highly recommend both books.

'First Commandment' is a well-crafted political thriller rife with action and plot twists. Nano-chapters and -paragraphs help kick the story along in high gear. Not only must the hero Scot Harvath fight the bad guys, namely the terrorists, in this one, he must also duel with the president of the United States, who wants him out of the picture, dead or alive, for reasons of his own. In short, everyone's got it in for Harvath. He must use all his wits to hunt down the villain who is terrorizing his family, and at the same time survive while the president assembles a team of Navy SEALS to do away with him. Brad Thor has done his homework with a lot of research for his book and it sounds like he has good sources as well. A la Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp, Harvath tortures and maims his way through the novel to a final bloody mano a mano with the terrorist on Lake Geneva.

One will never be disappointed with a Brad Thor book. He keeps one on the edge of their seat and it is nearly impossible to put down a Brad Thor book. "The First Commandment" absolutely lives up to that indeed!

Brad Thor continues the thrilling adventures of Scot Harvath. I have read all the books and have not been disappointed. It is never ending, believeable action. Unlike some action novels these people get tired, sleep and eat and they have emotions. I cant wait to see what is next.

President Jack Rutledge authorizes a deal with terrorists. Although the American government leaders always insist they will never negotiate with terrorists even for the release of hostages, he secretly releases five hardcore known terrorists locked away at Guantomino as part of a deal to protect at risk children. In fairness his advisors told them they can keep this quintet under control with monitoring of the isotope they put in the blood of these killers. --- The President¿s advisors missed another slammed dunk when they lose sight of the fearsome five. Just under six months later, an assassin shoots Homeland Security agent Scot Harvath¿s girlfriend Tracy Hastings (see TAKEDOWN), leaving her comatose and he furious as isotopic blood is found at the crime scene. Soon afterward, his mother is attacked by locusts and some friends of Harvath murdered. He knows someone is coming for him, through his loved ones. Harvath begins to make inquiries, but is told to stay out of it. Even before these incidents he knew the leadership saw him as an expendable renegade so he ignores the order to take no action against the person methodically destroying his loved ones. --- TAKEDOWN is an exciting action-packed frightening thriller THE FIRST COMMANDMENT is as exhilarating and action-packed, but even more frightening as the plausibility of the plot will not be questioned. Harvath is at his anguished best in this often violent tale as he is ordered to do nothing although his counter terrorist instincts are screaming to go on the offense. The return of several characters from previous books enhances the feel of the long term concept of the war against terrorism as Brad Thor raises the adrenalin with this terrific thriller. --- Harriet Klausner

I can't wait to get on the plane on Tuesday to start his book. I always enjoy anything he writes. I don't expect this to be anything less than the others have been.
