Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Summary:

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.

    I totally agree with anonymous the book has nothing to do with politics. Great book. Love Brad Thor.

    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.
