Summary:

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.

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.

But when covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath is assigned to infiltrate one of the world’s most notorious prisons and free the man the kidnappers demand as ransom, he quickly learns that there is much more to the operation than anyone dares to admit.

As the subterfuge is laid bare, Harvath must examine his own career of ruthlessly hunting down and killing terrorists and decide if he has what it takes to help one of the world’s worst go free.

    I don't think the other reviewers even listened to one CD. This story has nothing to do with "concervative polictics". It is a great story ripped from the headlines about terrorists trying to do damage to innocent victims.

    I admire the previous reviewer. I was unable to finish even the first CD. Once again the reader was, um, not good, but it really may have been that the text was insufferable.

    The author has some very conservative politics, which become clear early on in the book. There were strong opinions about people who want peace being hypocritical when it comes to their families. I got so annoyed reading it I couldn't get past the 2nd CD. If you're not political conservative I would recommend you skip this book.
