From #1 New York Times bestselling author, Brad Thor, comes Foreign Agent, “the best thriller of the year…an exciting and entertaining read” (The Washington Times).

Terrorism in Europe has spun out of control. The United States has decided on a dramatic response. Now, the CIA needs a very special kind of operative.

Scot Harvath has exactly the skills the CIA is looking for. He’s a former US Navy SEAL with extensive experience in espionage. Working for a private intelligence company, he will provide the CIA, and more important, the President, with absolute deniability.

But deep within the Russian Caucasus, Moscow also has its own special kind of operative. When a clandestine American operations team is ambushed near Syria, all signs point toward a dangerous informant in Brussels.

As the attacks mount, and terror is brought to the very doorstep of the White House, Harvath finds himself in the race of his life. From Vienna, Brussels, and Berlin, to Malta, Jordan, and Syria—he will push himself beyond the edge in order to confront one of the greatest evils the world has ever known.

Filled with action, intrigue, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, Foreign Agent is a nonstop thrill ride that reaffirms Thor’s position as the “master of thrillers.”

    This is the best Scott Harvath adventure to date. Well written, great plot, lightening fast pace, with satisfying finish. Feel like I just had a great succulent steak dinner with good glass of Cabernet.

    Once again knocked it out of the park Brad! Hope we have someone like Scott out there we are going to need him.

    What has happened to Brad Thor's writing? Crazy book, crazy characters, no plot, rambling on, who cares about the ending? Guess Scott Horvath is done....
  • Wicked

    By Spinalcell
    The fact that operators and think tanks are required to read at least one of his books should be an indication of his accuracy and skill set. You won't be disappointed. If Jack Ryan got you here let Scot Harvath show you how we stay here!!!

    Great read!! Kept me on the edge of my seat. Sometimes I couldn't wait till a particular part had some closure. Great job Brad.

    By Valleyforge5
    The melding of fiction with really well researched reality...interwoven into intricate plots. The "what ifs" on today's world chessboard taken through frightening conclusions. Brilliant. Reminds me of Clancy's early creative work. Thor is a force.
  • Great Read

    By Whimsical Wizard
    As always, Brad Thor delivered an amazing read, one in which you really wonder about the possibilities . . . Loved the twins! Hope to revisit their story in a future book.
  • Nice, not sophisticated

    By Yoavziv
    Nice book to have on a flight. The goods are good, the bads are bad.
  • Disappointing

    By CHRWC
    I wasn't familiar with this author and am surprised this is a NYT best seller. No character development, no details provided for key plot lines, repeated phrases, no suspense. A poorly written imitation of the best authors in this genre. I couldn't finish it.

  • Best yet!

    By mj5464
    Like a fine wine, his writing has improved with age. His best crafted book yet. I look forward to the next installment.
  • Spellbinding

    By Lin’s Book
    This is one of the best books I have ever read. I wish I could have read it through start to finish at one time, but my lifestyle prevented that. At the end of each challenging day, I had something to look forward to - a chapter or two of Foreign Agent!

    Outstanding, near real. Keeps the reader's interest and is fast moving to pique the reader's interest, that will not let him/her put the book down. When is Thor's next book going to be published?
  • Pass on this author

    By Strawberryshortcake5476577
    An expected and vanilla flavored story.
  • Almost Back

    By INFJ-male
    The sample download lead me to believe Brad was back to the level of his early books. And, while there were those moments, segments seemed to be stretched and phrasing repeated. Brad Thor has a great style as proven by past performance. Yet, whether it is contractual agreements-- to churn out books on a deadline or a consortium plugging in pieces of the mosaic...there were time I thought, who wrote this...this is not his style. I did find a number of "incidents" within the story line very current and even quite plausible. I enjoyed the book, but was waiting for the great writing of the past. And, while kind to mentioned the multitude of people that were involved in this book... Why not do the heavy work yourself. I don't recall Shakespeare devoting pages to his sources, publisher, editors and merchandisers.
  • Another Awesome Read by Thor

    By Banthaman
    I've read every one of his books. From start to finish they always grab me. I've read as Thor has evolved his titular character Scot Harvath through one harrowing ordeal to another. How Harvath has evolved personally and professionally over time and how things were left in this most recent book will have me wondering for a long time what is to become of the ultimate spy. The best part of these books is you can pick them in any order and just start reading. Although I do recommend from the 1st to this most recent. Excellent reading!!!
  • Great!!!

    By Blaze2458

    I used to enjoy the Scott Horvath series. There was plot development, character development, a bit of humor and some operational scenes that some could relate to. This one not so much. It reminded me of Kramer's t shirt message--in my mind I'm already gone.

    By Marx opinion
    Why would anyone (Foreign Agent) give such a lame review with no explanation as to why? I am patiently waiting for the release tomorrow, at which time I will buy this book. I am very confident that it will be worthy of my review of 5 stars. If you have a valid reason for your review then please let me in on it! I'm not impressed so far with your lack of enthusiasm.
