The continuing adventures of Scott Horvath are guaranteed to keep any reader engaged and fascinated. Near Dark has the usual fare of spycraft, non stop excitement and a sensitive examination of someone whose lost his life partner and is determined to find out who has a contract out on his life.

I was eagerly awaiting the next Harvath book and 200 pages in it didnt disappoint. However the last 100 felt rushed. After building up and tracking the baddies it all came to an end incredibly fast, almost as though the publisher said "finish the book now". So in the end i felt a little let down.. I wanted to give this 2 stars but in fairness, the rest of the book was great. Just left me feeling flat. Lift your game Thor!
Let me state that I've been reading Brad Thor from his first book, enjoying his attention to detail. However,72 pages into this book and it's just been consigned to the charity shop. Anyone who can write of the IRA ''The LVF might embrace random violence, but that was not how the IRA acted, at least not this wing of it. Part of the terror their division struck into the hearts of their enemies was their unfailing precision' has shown their total and absolute ignorance of their subject matter. It seems Mr Thor has lost his way and is now churning out cliched potboilers for the money. To his long-term readers, I can only suggest they save their money.
Why is the end of the story so rushed? It has been built up so good and towards the end, it gets too rushed. Wham bang - all remaining figures at the chess board get eliminated without flesh on the bone. Take your time, Brad, and let the reader enjoy the end of a good story instead of hustling them to the last page!
