On July 12th, 2022, Scot Harvath is set to return in Rising Tiger, the next must-read thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor.
Harvath, who was first introduced in the 2002 novel The Lions of Lucerne, has become one of the most recognizable names in fiction on his way to anchoring 20 bestselling novels to date. Most recently, he was seen in Thor’s 2021 blockbuster, Black Ice, where, after a much-needed vacation, his past finally caught up to him, forcing him back into action as he raced across the globe to take down a target he previously thought to have already been neutralized.
This time around, Harvath is starring down a potentially “nation-ending threat,” and while the book doesn’t come out until later this summer, Book Spy readers are getting an exclusive first look at the first two chapters.
Deadly operative Scot Harvath faces down the country’s most powerful enemy in #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor’s new white-knuckle thriller.
An unprecedented, potentially nation-ending threat has materialized on the world stage. Though the United States has long been aware of the growing risk, administration after administration has passed the buck, fearful of the global consequences of engaging this enemy head-on. The clock, however, has now run out and doing nothing is no longer an option. With the stakes higher than they have ever been, it is time to unleash Scot Harvath.
As America’s top spy, Harvath has the unparalleled skills and experience necessary to handle any situation, but this assignment feels different and appears doomed from the start.
Thrust into a completely unfamiliar culture, with few he can trust, the attempts on his life begin piling up the moment he arrives. Someone, somewhere, knows far too much.
With democracy itself hanging in the balance, Harvath will risk everything to untangle the explosive plot and bring every last bad actor to justice.
