Overview

Takedown (Scot Harvath Series #5) by Brad Thor

Scot Harvath must endure the burning streets of Manhattan, where he can administer his own form of justice and finally exact his bitter revenge.

July 4th weekend, New York City: As thousands of holiday travelers make their way out of Manhattan, a flawlessly executed terrorist attack plunges the city into a maelstrom of panic and death. Amid the chaos, an elite team of foreign operatives is systematically searching for one of their own, a man so powerful that the US government refuses to admit he even exists and will do anything to keep him hidden. Now, with the world’s deadliest enemy upon America’s doorstep, counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath must fight his way through the burning city streets to take down an invisible terrorist mastermind with the means to unleash hell on a global scale.

This was one fun read! A great way to spend a rainy day, and you'll probably be able to finish this in one weekend. In fact, that's my only complaint. It's a bit short. The story is engrossing, and I didn't mind the cliffhanger ending, because I couldn't wait to start the next book in the series, "The FIrst Commandment". While it isn't necessary to read this series in chronological order, I recommend that you do, simply because if you enjoy this one you'll probably enjoy the other books.

Love Thor's style. Gets you hook early and then it is hard to stop reading. I like reading book in a series in order. Only problem is that he as well as may authors waste my reading time rehashing the past books so those that haven't read the earlier ones can catch up

I recently became a fan of Brad Thor and have read several of his books. Overall, his work is very similar to that of Vince Flynn but with perhaps a bit more humor. He's also a little less apologetic for his main character being an patriotic ass kicker! Obviously his work might not be like that of Hemingway but it makes for very entertaining reading in between more heavy duty books. "Takedown" itself is among better ones I've read so far. I like that his plots, while always fairly complex, always get resolved in a believable manner. If you like the hard boiled, ass kicking, counter intelligence operative type book then you will like this and Thor's other books.

If I wrote reviews for all of Brad Thor's Scot Harvath´s books, they would say the same thing - BRILLIANT, EXCITING, FABULOUS PLOTS & BELIEVABLE CHARACTERS . . . His books are page-turners, and surprisingly, have educated me a lot about things I new nothing about before, such as the "Federal" Reserve and Islam. I feel more patriotic (while still acknowledging our policicians huge failings and greed) tan I have ever felt about America. If we actually have any Scot Harvath's working to protect us, I say THANK YOU, and if we don't, WAKE UP WASHINGTON & stop being so politically correct! Thank you, Brad Thor!!

Very good, thrilling to the very end. Surprises along the way. All his books are good. I discovered Brad Thor recently and have been enjoying reading his books in order.

This is the 5th in the Scot Harvath Series by Brad Thor and not as well done as some of the others I have read previously. Manhattan, NY is under siege by a terrorists group that has destroyed all bridge and waterway entries or exits from the rest of New York. Harvath and a loose band of physically handicapped x-military soldiers, along with Harvath’s close friend, attempt to find and shut down the primary threatening operation. This operation, designed by the terrorist, has the ultimate purpose to free a high value prisoner being interrogated in Manhattan, NY. Harvath and his band of misfits scour Manhattan looking for the captive prisoner and the men who are trying to free this hostage. In Washington the heads of the intelligence agencies are reluctant to share any information, making life miserable for those people responsible to accomplish their mission. I believe the hesitation to share intelligence between government departments rang true for me; personal egos, position, power and lack of trust all played a realistic part in this novel. In summary I would say it is a fair read, but not much more.
