“I place my trust in reason, I place it in the individual.  There is a madness in crowds from which even the wisest, caught up in their ranks, are not immune.  Stupidity and cruelty are the attributes of the mob, not wisdom and compassion.”  – Bernard Baruch

“Integrity is more than truth and honesty; integrity is an unshackled mind, a happy heart, and a light spirit. Integrity is inner peace with a clear, clean conscience. Integrity is self-respect, honor, and credibility. Integrity is healthy and unfettering, and it is worth defending.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich

Backlash by Brad Thor is #19 in the Scot Harvath series. This is another action-packed story, set in the frozen regions of Russia. There’s a lot of action, however,this book may be a little more violent than some of the previous Thor novels. It is a good read for those of us who like these sorts of action/adventure novels.
From the Publisher:
In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back.
They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai.
Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins.
One man is all three.
Two days ago, that man was crossed—badly.
Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out.
With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive.
But survival isn’t enough. Harvath wants revenge.
In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, page after captivating page of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence.
