As a storm rages across the Mediterranean Sea, a terrifying distress call is made to the Italian Coast Guard. Days later, a body washes ashore. Identified as a high value terrorism suspect (who had disappeared three years prior), his name sends panic through the Central Intelligence Agency. Where was he headed? What was he planning? And could he be connected to the “spectacular attack” they have been fearing all summer? In a race against time, the CIA taps an unorthodox source to get answers: Navy SEAL turned covert counter-terrorism operative, Scot Harvath. Hired on a black contract, Harvath will provide the deniability the United States needs, while he breaks every rule along the way.

Brad Thor is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Foreign AgentCode of ConductAct of War, Hidden Order, Black List, Full Black (one of Suspense Magazine’s best political thrillers of 2011), and many more!

Brad has appeared on numerous television programs to discuss terrorism, as well as how closely his novels of international intrigue parallel the real threats facing the world today.

Brad has served as a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s Analytic Red Cell Unit, and has lectured to law enforcement organizations on over-the-horizon/future threats. A supporter of The Heritage Foundation, Brad has spoken at their national headquarters on the need for robust missile defense.

In 2008, Brad shadowed a Black Ops team in Afghanistan to research his thriller, The Apostle.

Brad graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California where he studied creative writing, film, and television production. Prior to becoming a novelist, Brad was the award-winning creator, producer, writer and host of the critically acclaimed national public television series, Traveling Lite.
