The Apostle: A Thriller

by Brad Thor

Simon & Schuster | October 13, 2010 | Hardcover

The Apostle: A Thriller is rated 3 out of 5 by 3.
Master of suspense and #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor returns with his most riveting international thriller yet.

A new administration and a new approach to dealing with America''s enemies have left covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath without a job. But when American doctor Julia Gallo is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the terms of her ransom leave the president with only one course of action.

In a dangerous assignment that the United States government will deny any knowledge of, Scot Harvath must secretly infiltrate Kabul''s notorious Policharki Prison and free the man the kidnappers demand as ransom - al-Qaeda mastermind, Mustafa Khan.

But when Harvath arrives, he quickly learns that there is more to the kidnapping than anyone dares to admit. And as the subterfuge is laid bare, Harvath must examine his own career of hunting down and killing terrorists, and ask himself if he has what it takes to help one of the world''s worst go free.

Brimming with the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines authenticity Brad Thor''s internationally bestselling novels are known for, The Apostle doubles down on the blockbuster success of The Last Patriot and reaffirms Thor''s status as the master of the political thriller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read! Picked this book up in the airport and was very pleased to find a (new to me) author that I wanted to read more of. Excellent book, fast paced and suspenseful. Great writing style.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring I have read all of Brad Thor’s books and I find a progression of boredom as the series moves along. This last book did not keep my attention at all. I got to the last 50-75 pages and found myself hoping it would end. Definitely not one of the best, its time of Harvath to die and get back to basics.

About the Book

Homeland Security operative Scot Harvath must find the kidnapped daughter of a politically connected family in the terrorist frontier of Afghanistan.

Read from the Book

Chapter 3 Kandahar Province Monday (Three weeks later) Dr. Julia Gallo sat on a dusty carpet and eyed the cracked mud bricks and exposed timbers of the tiny room. She didn''t need to look at her interpreter to know that he was watching her. "Ask again," she said. Sayed cleared his throat, but the question wouldn''t come. They were in dangerous territory. It was bad enough that the young American doctor dragged him to the most godforsaken villages in the middle of nowhere, but now she was openly trying to get them killed. If the Taliban knew what she was doing, they''d both be dead. The five-foot-six Afghan with deep brown eyes and black hair had a wife, three children, and a not-so-insignificant extended family that relied on him and the living he made as an interpreter. For the first time in his twenty-two-year-old life, Sayed had something very few Afghans ever possessed -- hope; hope for himself, hope for his family, and hope for the future of his country. And while what he did was dangerous, there was no need to make it any more so by taunting the specter of death. Dr. Gallo, on the other hand, seemed to have a remarkably different set of priorities. At five-foot-ten, Julia was a tall woman by most standards, but by Afghan standards she was a giant. And although she kept her long red hair covered beneath an Afghan headscarf known as a hijab , she couldn''t hide her remarkable green eyes and the fact that she was a very attractive woman. She was a graduate of the obstetric
