Takedown: A Thrillerby Brad Thor
Synopses & Reviews
Scot Harvath must endure the burning streets of Manhattan, where he can administer his own form of justice and finally exact his bitter revenge.
After years without a terrorist attack on American soil, one group has picked the Fourth 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.
July 4th weekend, New York City: As thousands of holiday travelers make their way out of Manhattan, a flawlessly executed terrorist attack plunges the city into a maelstrom of panic and death.

Now, with the world’s deadliest enemy upon America’s doorstep, counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath must fight his way through the burning city streets to take down an invisible terrorist mastermind with the means to unleash hell on a global scale.
Harvath must endure the burning streets of Manhattan, where he can administer his own form of justice and finally exact his bitter revenge.
