On the snowy Utah slopes, thirty Secret Service agents are viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States kidnapped, seemingly by the Fatah, a lethal terrorist organization in the Middle East. Tbor 16, Eric Bjerke rated it it was ok. An avalanche occurs and the president is kidnapped. What fictional names need to be changed? Now that I got that off my chest. The character development was very good, especially loons Harvath. This was one heck of a good read.

President and the killing of thirty of Scot’s Secret Service co-worke After loving my first exposure to Brad Thor and his Scot Harvath character, in Black ListI figured I would start back at the beginning with the first in the series. In a race against time, they must scale the treacherous heights of Mt. The first unreal scene to me was shortly after Agent Harvath survives a powerful avalanche. This book was generally good.

Reviews for the book were mixed. We don’t need to be told the same piece of information three times just because you’re trying to help us recall who the bad guys are and what they’re into.

Title needs fixing please 3 Dec 16, I wasn’t too thrilled with the political stuff either. Thor’s description of Mormons being raised as one is seriously flawed. Sep 24, Tim rated it really liked it. Aug 11, Steph rated it it was amazing.


It’s always a wonderful feeling when you discover someone new!

The Lions of Lucerne

The sign of a fantastic thriller is the desire to stay up much later than you ought to trying to fly through the book as quickly as possible. Rank and file Mormons try to keep it to three hours, thank you very much. Refresh and try again. God is a just god, not the head of a “good old boys club”. Just when I decided the author had researched with a wanted to read the Brad Thor book on the best seller list and found that this book is first in a group Tom Clancey-like of thrillers with the same main character.

Thor’s Scot character and – wow, what a ride! Mar 22, Mormonhermitmom rated it it was ok.

The Lions of Lucerne – Wikipedia

Instead of locking him down based on suspicions of being in cahoots with those that kidnapped the president, he manages to lionw to Europe after further getting the assaulted by mercenary hit men trying to kill him.

The bad guys are inept and Harvath is just as inept. No, they do not. For example, they just had 30 fellow Secret Service agents shot up, and the president kidnapped, and immediately after Thor feels like it is a good time to develop protagonist Scot Harvath’s character with some everyday, locker-room type, humorous banter–and not of the “this is how I’m dealing with the difficult situation” variety. By the way, the daughter? It contained multiple transgressions of the single thing I hate most: Now we will see if I like the current book with the same “super man” hero.

But of course, they don’t listen to him, because it was his detail that was killed, allowing POTUS to be taken. I could buy that act once the frame against him really builds up, but not at the very start of the investigation.

Action packed from page 1, Scot Harvath gets beaten, mugged, shot at but keeps popping back up until he identifies and kills all the bad guys!! What I do find hard to believe is that to defeat a bill in Congress lucerrne conspire to assassinate Secret Service agents and kidnap the American president and frame the surviving agent for murder.


The Lions Of Lucerne (Scot Harvath, book 1) by Brad Thor

This author really “gets” the current political clime vis-a-vis certain “religions of peace” and their suicidal war against western civilization. The faults of a first-time novelist have bbrad been corrected. There are a bunch of other flaws. Not impossible to believe the above mind you–just hard.


It’s even worse when the same character does it all alone. View all 5 comments. It’s a good thing Thor created fictitious people to laugh at his jokes, because certainly no one in real life ever would.

Overall I liked it, but there were slow parts that I skimmed and found myself having to reread if there were bard plot elements I overlooked. An honest attempt to make Thor’s prose more concise would likely result in reducing the book’s page count by half. Secret Service Agent Scot Harvath is point man advancing the ski resort.

And that’s just for starters. The entire story is full of accidental discoveries, charmed life-saving instances, the complete stupidity of the villains who are otherwise extremely intelligent in committing the most difficult of the crime and coincidences that break open the tho.
