Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor brings readers his darkest and most intriguing thriller yet—a terrifying story of espionage and betrayal—brilliantly paced with superb nonstop action.

Born in the shadows and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist.

When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States.

With the CIA's intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists' network and prevent one of the biggest threats the United States has ever faced.

Simultaneously, a foreign wet work team has been sent to California. Their target: one of Hollywood's most famous filmmakers.

While working on a secret documentary project, movie producer Larry Salomon has unknowingly exposed one of the world's wealthiest and most politically connected powerbrokers—a man with a radical anti-American agenda poised to plunge the nation into deadly, irreversible chaos.

As the plots rocket to their pulse-pounding conclusion and the identities of the perpetrators are laid stunningly bare, Harvath will be left with only one means to save America. Unable to trust anyone, he will be forced to go Full Black.

Intense and frighteningly realistic, FULL BLACK is, hands down, Brad Thor's most riveting thriller to date.

    I don't think I've ever made a discovery like this before but Chapter 61 of this Brad Thor novel has instantly become a surprising and giggling moment in reading…Giggling while reading a Brad Thor novel? Who does that? Let me explain…
    “It was early Monday morning and Robert Ashford was taking his breakfast at his tidy little row house at number 22 Portobello Road in London's Notting Hill.”

    What is so special about Robert Ashford, MI5 Agent, and his breakfast activities? It's not about breakfast but the reveal of his home address. As a cozy mystery reader of Jenn McKinlay's novels and the especially loved Hat Shop Mystery Series, I smiled and giggled to myself thinking of Robert's neighbors, Vivian Tremont, Scarlett Parker, Nick Carroll, and Andre Eisel. Mim's Whims is located on Portobello Road in Notting Hill, London. Nick and Andre's photography/studio is a few shops down Portobello Road from Viv and Scarlett.

    “He (Robert Ashford) had been with Britain's domestic intelligence service for more than thirty years. MI5 was responsible for national security, counterterrorism, and counterespionage within the United Kingdom. It was similar to America's FBI and was often confused with its sister organization, MI6, which was like the American CIA.”

    For those not familiar with the series by Jenn McKinlay, I would introduce you to Vivian Tremont and cousin Scarlett Parker owners of Mim's Whims, a millinery business started by their beloved grandmother Mim. The business is on the first floor and the apartment is upstairs. Or, perhaps Robert's immediate neighbors are Nick Carroll and Andre Eisel. Nick is a dentist by day and his partner Andre the photographer but they run the gallery together.

    Now, as Robert has been in domestic service for more than thirty years, it's also possible that he interacted with Scarlett and Viv's grandmother Mim.

    Oh, the imaginations of an author you say but then there are also the imaginations of their readers.

    Very juvenile and only for right wing trump readers. Waste of 7 hours

    Not one of Thor's best. I read Brad Thor for pure escapism and shoot-em-up action. Normally, he is a real page turner and a quick light read. However, in Full Black has injected his right wing conservative views in the extreme. In several places Thor goes on and on in a diatribe. He thinly veils his lecture in the guise of a character speaking but it is excessive and goes beyond acceptable. I don't need Thor's lectures in the middle of a novel. I have known about Thor's conservative agenda and don't mind it as long as it doesn't destroy his books. Full Black is the first strike, one more and Thor will be off my list.

    Brad Thor has written another great novel that revolves around the Chinese "Unrestricted Warfare" document that explains how the Chinese could defeat a superior country. A billionaire tycoon, James Standing, decides to put this plan in action to collapse the United States. Scot Harvath, an ex-Navy SEAL must try to stop Standing and his hired Muslim extremist. In order to accomplish this, he must perform many things that most people would be squeamish about. Thor does a nice job of distinguishing between the extremist Muslims carrying out the terrorist attacks and the true Muslims that are normal people. The book is well-written and a page turner that will keep you very entertained.
