#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Brad Thor, hailed as the “Master of Thrillers” (BookReporter.com) and the “Ultimate Thriller Writer” (Suspense Magazine), returns with a masterpiece of action, intrigue, and betrayal.
A rumor, a remote cabin in Norway, and an American intelligence operative charged with stopping the next world war before it begins—Scot Harvath’s mission is one of the deadliest he has ever undertaken.
Across Europe, a secret organization has begun attacking diplomats. Reminiscent of the Red Brigades and the Red Army Faction of the 1970s, these faceless terrorists appear to have the same goals. But in the shadowy realm of international espionage, looks are always deceptive.
As a prelude to war, one of the world’s most dangerous intelligence agencies has been charged with preparing the battlefield. Their job—to demoralize the enemy and win the conflict before it even begins. To do so, they will sow as much chaos, dissent, and destruction as possible. There’s only one obstacle standing in their way.
Dispatched to Europe, Scot Harvath and his team have been tasked with a critical assignment—to do whatever it takes to keep America and her NATO allies from being dragged into war.
But with his mentor out of the game, Harvath must play an additional role; one which he has spent his entire career avoiding, and one which he believes he is ill prepared to take on. In his most important operation ever, will he be able to thread this perilous needle? Or will it end up being the downfall of America and the West?
In Spymaster, Scot Harvath proves more cunning, more dangerous, and more lethal than ever before. With breathless pacing, ripped-from-the-headlines twists, and the predictive storytelling that are his trademark, Brad Thor has written his finest thriller. If you have never read a novel by “America’s favorite author” (KKTX), this Brad Thor novel is the place to start.
