Publisher Comments:

On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the unthinkable has happened: the President of the United States has been kidnapped, and his Secret Service detail massacred. Only one agent has survived — ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath. He doesn't buy the official line that Middle Eastern terrorists are responsible, and begins his own campaign to find the truth — and exact revenge. But his search makes him a marked man by the sinister cabal behind the attack.

Framed for murder by the conspirators, Harvath goes on the run, taking the fight to the towering mountains of Switzerland. There, he finds an unlikely ally: the beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney's Office. Together they must brave the subzero temperatures and sheer heights of treacherous Mount Pilatus — and their only chance for survival is to enter the den of the most lethal team of professional killers the world has ever known....

Synopsis:

Scott Harvath works alone to uncover corruption at high levels. During a skiing holiday in Colorado the US president is kidnapped and the CIA and FBI are called in, to no avail. Harvath begins his search only to discover the involvement of a deadly group based in Switzerland - the Lions of Lucerne.

Synopsis:

Navy SEAL Scot Harvath is featured in these newly repackaged, specially priced, international thrillers by the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Takedown." RBrad Thor is as current as tomorrow's headlines.S--Dan Brown ("The DaVinci Code"). Reissue.

Brad Thor’s debut novel introduces readers to Scot Harvath, an ex-Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent who, in his own words, is “bulletproof”. That aspect, typical of the genre, may not seem realistic to cynical readers, but Thor, a former member of the Department of Homeland Security, crafts his storyline and location scenery with such vivid details and circumstances that it’s easy to disappear into Harvath’s adventures without need of questioning issues of plausibility. After all, Harvath is the post-9/11 equivalent of Ian Fleming’s James Bond – with enough narrow escapes, twists, and rapid-fire one-liners to match. I absolutely cannot wait to read the rest of the novels in this series.

Despite a few eye rolling moments, Brad Thor has really drawn me into Scot Harvath's world. Lions is a quick read and full of all kinds of interesting ancillary facts. Thor does an especially great job with location descriptions, which shouldn't be too much of a surprise.
