Brad Thor has a penchant for writing big action stories and this is no exception, but the plot is so outrageous and unbelievable that it's difficult to take this novel seriously. The whole kidnapping of the president and government conspiracy behind it was not remotely realistic. His main character, Scott Harvath, is interesting, but the situations that he gets involved with lend no credibility to the character. I spent the entire book saying to myself, you have got to be kidding. I find myself wanting to like Brad Thor as a writer, but his novels don't deliver and this is no exception.
