Scot Harvath must do whatever it takes to prevent the United States from being dragged into a deadly war in this heart-pounding thriller that is “timely, raw, and filled with enough action for two books” (The Real Book Spy) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor. Across Europe, a secret organization has begun attacking diplomats. Back in the United States, a foreign ally demands the identity of a highly placed covert asset. Between the two, all the ingredients are there for an all-out war. With his mentor out of the game, counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath must take on the role he has spent his career avoiding. But, as with everything else he does, he intends to rewrite the rules—all of them. In Spymaster, Scot Harvath is more cunning, more dangerous, and deadlier than ever before.

I think 'Spymaster' is a bridge between the young Scot Harvath of the earlier novels and the Scot of today, feeling his body age and change with age, realizing his potential limitations, his desire for more in life in the way of a family and the need to step out of the role of an on-the-ground agent into the role of one who directs those following in his hard to fill footsteps. It's clearly a bridge Harvath struggles to cross, which is the point I take from reading 'Spymaster'.

Once again, with 'Spymaster', Brad Thor finds a way to be prescient about and fully dialed into complex, frightening world geopolitical issues and the dangers our country faces with them.

I really enjoyed this book. It's the first one I've read by Thor and I was engaged by his style and premise from the "git go". It was over before I knew it and I wanted more; I 've just returned it and I'm back for more. He does write "thrillers" and thank goodness for that!

This is the second Brad Thor/Scot Harvath novel I've read. It's better than the previous one I read ("The Lions of Lucerne"), but I must say I'm still underwhelmed. There is good action, but for an ostensible realistic story line, it stretches the bounds of believability. There are numerous scenes where the action is fairly hard to accept. Think Tom Cruise action scenes.

Also, as was the case with "Lions", the editing is subpar - an example: after Harvath gives a policeman an assumed name, the policeman refers to him as "Mr. Harvath".

All in all, with the combination of the lax editing, implausible plot lines, and numerous unlikely scenes, I'll probably pass on other Brad Thor books. There's too much competition out there for me to waste my reading time on these novels.

Thrillers are not my favourite genre. I have just started reading books by Baldacci, Lee Child, and James Patterson. I picked up Brad Thor's "Spymaster" with great expectations and was disappointed. Scott Harvath, the leading character is a larger than life hero who makes things happen. He and his posse are members of a private spy ring and they are trying to eradicate a Russian Plot to destabilize NATO and take over Europe. The scenes are a little unbelievable but all in all not bad.

very disappointing. Too much historical and geographical information. Had to skip many pages to get to any action.

kept me guessing about how it would end. Great story. Can't wait for the next one.
