“Raw emotion, nonstop action, and relentless pacing makes Backlash another one-night read from Brad Thor, who delivers the book to beat in 2019.” —The Real Book Spy

#1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 Publishers Weekly bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most gripping thriller yet!

In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back.

They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai.

Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins.

One man is all three.

Two days ago, that man was crossed—badly.

Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out.

With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive.

But survival isn’t enough. Harvath wants revenge.

In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, page after captivating page of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence.

  • WOW!!!

    By Old Coqui
    Brad Thor is an excellent writer who is exceptional at keeping the reader involved. His attention to detail exceeds, or at a minimum, almost any author I’ve read. Plots are well thought out and make the next page one to which you’ll look forward.

    Great survival story and terrific addition to the series. Thanks, Brad Thor. At least in a story we can be reminded of love of country and the principles of patriotism.

    Formulaic, unoriginal, populated by wooden characters. The book is the literary equivalent of fried sawdust.

    I can’t get enough of this series, the characters and storyline take me away to their world. You can’t put the book down.
  • No plot

    By tbfgrwsjotv
    This book has no plot. It is just a series of the “hero” trying to escape from Russia and chapter after chapter of him doing exhaustive efforts that stretch him to physical limits page after page. The author forgot to insert a story. I usually like his books, but thought this was boring and totally unbelievable.
  • Outstanding book

    By SS in VA
    This book has a great plot with continuous action and suspense. Clearly one of Brad’s best. Sad opening, but great after that
  • Meh.

    Not his best. A little derivative and predictable.
