“Some people have to give up the American dream, so that others can enjoy it”
“I want to be sure that each book is better than the last,” says Brad Thor, NY Times bestselling author of the soon to be release book Full Black. Full Black is the latest in the Scot Harvath franchise that has included such bestsellers as “Lions of Lucerne”, “Takedown”, and “Foreign Influence”.
For new readers of Brad Thor, this is the book to start with. Full Black takes a look at the men and women of the intelligence community in a way that no other thriller can. What kind of person would agree to work in an environment where they may have to leave at a moment’s notice, with no ability to tell their loved ones where they are going, for how long, and what they will be doing? What kind of person is draw into a relationship with these selfless men and women? What kind of relationship is possible? Full Black and Scot Harvath provide insight into these questions and more.
Brad has yet again managed to take a world that few people see or know about, and expose readers to the inner workings of that world. Through his connections with politicians, military leaders, and the everyday people of the intelligence community, Brad continues to leave readers in suspense, providing a roller coaster ride that is unmatched by his fellow authors.
Some might say that, because Osama Bin Laden is dead, there is no need for Scot Horvath. “There is absolutely still a need for a guy like Scot Harvath,” Brad says, “He gives a voice to those who technically don’t exist.”
Through this all, Brad demonstrates his amazing sense of humor by recognizing how powerful what he does as a writer can be. He jokes that he is “glad to know he is ruining marriages around the country.” Brad’s books are page-turners, often evoking the “I will only read one more chapter” fallacy that turns into a full night of reading his books. Brad’s sarcasm and humor is tempered by the fact that he recognizes that “time is a finite resource”. Brad does not want a reader to arrive at the conclusion of his books and feel that their time has been wasted.
While rubbing elbows with such power players as Karl Rove, Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and General Stanley McChrystal, Brad has managed to remain grounded and true to the idea that what he does is create a medium for entertaining book lovers.
