In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back. They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai. Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins. One man is all three. Two days ago, that man was crossed--badly. Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out. With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive. But survival isn't enough. Harvath wants revenge.

A terrific thriller. Well worth the read.

Great thriller, but an increase in bad language from his previous books was frustating.

BACK LASH is the latest installment in the Scot Harvath series of thrillers by Brad Thor. Entertaining story line. Harvath kidnapped by the bad guys, he escapes, but winds up in Russia in the winter being chased by bad guys. Be prepared for him to have a lot of time on his own while escaping and evading - and when Harvath is alone for too long, his mind sometimes wanders into self-denigrating thought patterns. Other than a tad too much of that, its a great read.

Another fast-paced thriller from one of the best in the business. I eagerly anticipate the newest Scot Harvath adventure every summer, and this did not disappoint. I hope Thor continues to find ways to drag Harvath back into the espionage game, because I cannot get enough.

Big Thor fan. Read all of his books and this one shows how far he has progressed as a writer. Did I just experience a Georgraphy lesson? Love it. When you close this book you'll have multiple questions.....Where next? New characters?
