After years without a terrorist attack on American soil, one group has picked the 4th of July weekend to pull out all the stops. In a perfectly executed attack, all of the bridges and tunnels leading into and out of Manhattan are destroyed just as thousands of commuters begin their holiday exodus. With domestic efforts focused on search and rescue, a deadly team of highly trained foreign soldiers methodically makes its way through the city with the singular objective of locating one of their own -- a man so powerful that America will do anything to keep him hidden.Scot Harvath is now the country's only hope. Fighting his way through the burning streets of Manhattan, he must mount his own operation to locate a man the United States government refuses to admit even exists.

Good action, good story with some NYC sites. Action keeps going and going with a positive ending after some horrific scenes.

A action packed thrill ride. Up to his usual standard, with a very plausible scenario for terrorism in the US.

This is the first Brad Thor book I've read, but I agree with Jinx that Thor writes a lot like Vince Flynn. So if you like those books (which I do) you most certainly will like Brad Thor. I've added a few more of Thor's books to my reserved books list. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
