The Lions Of Lucerne

I really hope the rest of the series doesn’t become a convoluted mess. While the writing isn’t as tight — this is Thor’s first published book — the story was just as compelling, if not more so.

Framed for murder and on the run, Scot takes to the towering mountains of Switzerland with beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney’s Office. The bad guys are inept and Harvath is just as inept. A shadowy lucernr comprises some of the highest-ranking officials in government and business — men who operate above the law, realize the threat Scot lucrne to their hidden agenda, and will do anything to stop him.

All the agents are killed and the president is kidnapped.

I just found Brad Thor and I love his books. Oh, don’t worry – if you have trouble remembering any of it, you’ll get told again at the end, when one character explains to Horvath the motivation of the bad guys.

Aug 12, Gary rated it really liked it Shelves: There’s the bad guys driving a semi – in heavy, wet snow, on a mountain – to a cabin where they kill a couple of old people and then take off in the ambulance that was hauled up in that trailer, POTUS in the back. It becomes more lins “chase” novel.

Yeah, we get it already. Throughout the picturesque towns of Bern, Interlaken and Lucerne, Harvath plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with the real kidnappers, as well as rogue factions within his own government that want him terminated before he can save the president.

Scot Harvath 1 – 10 of 19 books. The book opens with a prologue. Scott Harvath works the Presidential detail, but this particular day, he is escorting the president’s teenage daughter around the ski slopes at Park City, Utah. First off, Mormon Sunday meetings last three hours, not five hours, unless said Mormon is a Bishop or a Relief Society president or missionaries, or a stake presidency.

But hey, as it turned out, it wasn’t that it was outre right-wing that turned me off, but that when it comes down to it I’m the kind of gal who believes Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone to assassinate Pres Uhm Age inappropriate language and violence. That’s rhetorical, of course, because I know why: Sort of a cross between TV’s “24” and a Tom Clancy thriller, the Scot Harvath character is well-written and can be related to; he isn’t a superhero, he makes mistakes losing the President being one of them and now must try to resolve that mistake even when facing obstacle after obstacle.

So, to keep in mind: Jul 21, Cleo rated it really liked it. Sure you don’t always get along with people you work with or people on your team, but you act like you get along with them. I wasn’t too thrilled with the political stuff either. In other words, the President is simply the “MacGuffin”.

By the way, the daughter? This is a big book in so many ways and does a good job of introducing the main character to the series, Scot Horvath. Thank you for signing up, fellow book lover!

I don’t think it necessary to read this book before the others in the series, as they seem to stand on their own pretty well. The characters are onion-skin thin and the plot ridden with unbelievable coincidences. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Fast paced — full of action and adventure. An interesting theme is set up in this book with the kidnapping of the American President and Scot sets about finding the President to bring him home.

While investigating the Presidents kidnapping, Harvath is framed by the conspirators for murder, and Harvath goes rogue, attempting to clear his name and find the President, travelling to the mountains of Switzerland, and teaming up with the beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney’s Office, together they battle assassins and terrorists, and climb the treacherous mountains to rescue the President and bring those responsible to justice.

I’m having a hard time just giving this book 3 stars.
