In the latest pulse-pounding thriller from "New York Times"-bestselling author Thor, Navy SEAL-turned-covert-Homeland Security-operative Scot Harvath must find the kidnapped daughter of a politically connected family.
From the Publisher:
When a media titan's daughter is kidnapped in Afghanistan and offered in exchange for the freedom of a top Al Qaeda operative, Navy SEAL turned covert Homeland Security operative Scot Harvath undertakes a dangerous mission to free the terrorist from a Kabul prison only to discover that things are not what they seem. (Suspense).
Annotation:
Covert operative Scot Harvath embarks on a rescue mission that will test all his strengths in APOSTLE by bestselling author Brad Thor. When kidnappers grab Dr. Julia Gallo, the daughter of a media tycoon, in Afghanistan, Harvath is sent to rescue her. But to do that, he must first retrieve the demanded ransom: al Qaeda leader Mustafa Khan, held in a Kabul prison. This is one of Harvath's most dangerous--and compromising--missions, because the U.S. government will admit no knowledge of Harvath's activities, so if anything goes wrong, he's on his own. Against a backdrop of political instability and international intrigue, Thor delivers another powerful political thriller.
Author Bio
Brad Thor
Brad Thor's novels have found a large readership in post-9/11 America, and he is often a guest on conservative-leaning television and radio shows. "In my books, when the shackles come off and my guys take it to the terrorists, that's the way I would like to see it [in real life]," he has said. Thor was born in Chicago. In an attempt to please his father, a real estate developer, he majored in business at the University of Southern California. Before graduating in 1992, however, he changed his focus to creative writing. Although he dreamed of publishing a novel one day, he began his career in television, producing and hosting a documentary series called TRAVELING LITE. With his wife's encouragement, in 2002 he completed his first book, THE LIONS OF LUCERNE, which introduced Scot Harvath, an ex-Navy SEAL involved in covert counterterrorism operations. Thor's Harvath novels have since made regular appearances on major bestseller lists, often in the number-one spot. His fans include many members of the nation's counterterrorism and military communities, and while researching his 2009 bestseller, THE APOSTLE, he was invited to embed with a black-ops unit in Afghanistan. Thor, who counts many government officials as personal friends, has participated in the Analytic Red Cell Unit, a Department of Homeland Security program in which writers, computer programmers, and other members of the public helped formulate possible terrorist scenarios and ways to avoid them.
