Description

Every politician has a secret. And when the daughter of a politically-connected family is kidnapped abroad, America's new president will agree to anything-even a deadly and ill-advised rescue plan-in order to keep his secret hidden. A new administration and a new approach to dealing with America's enemies have left covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath without a job. But when American doctor Julia Gallo is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the terms of her ransom leave the president with only one course of action. In a dangerous assignment that the United States government will deny any knowledge of, Scot Harvath must secretly infiltrate Kabul's notorious Policharki Prison and free the man the kidnappers demand as ransom-al-Qaeda mastermind, Mustafa Khan. But when Harvath arrives, he quickly learns that there is more to the kidnapping than anyone dares to admit. And as the subterfuge is laid bare, Harvath must examine his own career of hunting down and killing terrorists, and ask himself if he has what it takes to help one of the world's worst go free. Brimming with the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines authenticity Brad Thor's internationally bestselling novels are known for, The Apostle doubles down on the blockbuster success of The Last Patriot and reaffirms Thor's status as the master of the political thriller.

Professional reviews

"With bad weather, primitive conditions, and a brutal terrorist at large, Thor depicts some of the extreme dangers of Afghanistan. When a highly connected young doctor is taken prisoner by radicals, the new president finds himself blackmailed into taking action. Narrator Armand Schultz brings some much-needed humanity to this story of wisecracking tough guys and endless inventories of high-tech weaponry. He clearly delineates each member of a privately funded group of professionals sent in to extract the prisoner. Bringing the covert soldiers alive as individuals, Schultz gives them dimension and maintains listeners' interest D.G. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
