In a safe house near the Syrian border, a clandestine American operations team readies to launch a dramatic mission months in the making. Their target: the director of social media for ISIS, Abu Muslim al-Naser. Multiple analysts, as well as a senior congresswoman, are in country to monitor the raid, but before the team can launch, the safe house is attacked. What unfolds in the bloody aftermath is a political and public relations nightmare. As horrific videos of the Americans are published on the Internet, the blame-storming back in Washington goes into full swing, focusing on how the intel for the raid was developed and how it might have leaked. As the search for answers mounts, half spy, half covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath quickly finds himself at the center of the storm. Working for a private intelligence agency contracted by both the CIA and the DoD, it was Harvath who pinpointed al-Naser. But how could ISIS have known the Americans were coming, much less where they would be staging? There has to be more to it; something everyone - especially the politicians - is missing.

great book overall the only problem is after the attack in the beginning for about 5 or so chapters it was pretty boring but if you forget about all of that then it was a pretty good read!

Chock full of irrelevant details and the usual American anti-Russian propaganda and boring gun talk -- to the point where I kept losing the thread of the actual story. It started out okay, but as it wore on, it became an effort to bother turning the page. Not recommended.

Decent read. It's a Thor read, same characters, current events locations. Ho-hum.
