In the latest Scot Harvath thriller, members of the Carlton Group (the elite team of former military agents) are being assassinated one by one, and Harvath himself is targeted. Escaping death, he reaches out to the head of the group Reed Carlton, who has gone dark. Searching for answers and trying to determine whom he can trust, Harvath is in a game for his life. The main plot line is that the Carlton Group has been targeted by a powerful group within the US government that controls too much information, and is using the Patriot Act to spy on Americans. Seemingly ripped from the headlines, and using a storyline that is popping up more and more, the implications of a government spying on it's citizens and having the power to authorize treason by death without trial are hopefully just fiction, and will remain such. This book has the usual action sequences, slick humor and dialog, and an exciting finish. Great summer read!
