One of the things that I find so thrilling about Thor’s novels is that the scenarios he describes and technology used by his characters often show up in the real news over the next 12-18 months. So you know he’s done his research thoroughly and crafted a story that, while it is fiction, feels completely real when you are reading it. And that adds an unbelievable edge to the reading experience.

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.
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.
With each terrorist attack on U.S. soil, Americans gave up more of their rights. Harvath was reminded of the line, paraphrasing Benjamin Franklin, that those who trade some of their liberty for a little temporary security deserve neither and will lose both. The wisdom of the founders never ceased to amaze him.
After tracking down a deadly terrorist cell, former Seal Team 6 and current Carlton Group member, Scot Harvath formulates a plan to infiltrate the cell to stop a string of deadly attacks on American soil. After the mission goes horribly wrong, and more attacks are launched in the heart of America, Harvath must go Full Black to uncover those responsible and bring them to his brand of justice.
