Bonus Chapter: Hidden Order Epilogue II from Brad Thor

Bonus Chapter: Hidden Order Epilogue II from Brad Thor

If you’ve been reading our blog very long, you know that Brad Thor is one of my favorite thriller authors. His research is always more than current, it’s usually about six months ahead of the news headlines.

Yesterday afternoon he sent an email to his newsletter subscribers with a special treat- a BONUS Chapter for HIDDEN ORDER! Woooo- Hoooo! It sets up Scot Harvath’s next adventure and hints about good things to come.

Book Review: Slingshot by Matthew Dunn + Giveaway

SLINGSHOT is Book 3 in Matthew Dunn’s SPYCATHER Series and is the best one yet. In SLINGSHOT, Will Cochrane is given his most difficult mission to date, finding a missing piece of paper and stopping a plot so evil it’s difficult to comprehend the breadth and depth of the conspiracy. If he can’t stop the threat in time, potentially millions of lives are at stake.

What are you reading this weekend?

I just started reading Brad Thor’s newest thriller, Hidden Order. I’m about 11 chapters into it and totally hooked. For years I’ve looked forward to Thor’s annual Summer releases and this year was no different. I hope to carve out a few hours of uninterrupted reading time this weekend to really sink into this story.

Review: Political Suicide by Michael Palmer + Giveaway

Today marks the release of Michael Palmer’s newest medical thriller Political Suicide and to celebrate, Palmer has graciously offered to giveaway a SIGNED Hardcover Edition here on the Lazy Day Books Blog! We’ll tell you how to enter for your chance to win at the end of our review.

I have to say the Prologue is one of the best I’ve read in quite a while and the shock value alone is enough to quickly propel you through many chapters while searching for answers to your questions. I mean, what kind of purely evil person would ever want to do such a thing to the truest, bravest, most honorable men of our armed forces? Because as soon as you read it, you know that wasn’t something these men signed up for, or were ever trained to do, or could ever believe in.

Which means somebody did this to them. And that person absolutely must be stopped.

Book Review: The Last Man by Vince Flynn

Book Review: The Last Man by Vince Flynn

Mitch Rapp is back!

The last two Rapp Series books went back in time to show us how Mitch Rapp became the meanest, toughest, baddest CIA Counter-terrorist Operative ever. American Assassin set the stage and showed us the whole selection and training process and gave us just the right amounts of insight into his psyche. The second prequel, Kill Shot, was a great action thriller and showed us more about Rapp’s development history.

With The Last Man, we are back to a modern-day setting in Afghanistan, where a CIA agent has gone missing.
