An enigmatic covert operative. A skilled FBI agent with a dark past. And a terror plot unlike any in history...
An explosion pulverizes the president-elect's helicopter on election night. It soon becomes clear that the group behind the assassination possesses far greater reach than anything the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force has yet encountered - and a plot so deeply interwoven in the country's fabric that it threatens to upend America's political system.
But as Department of Defense covert operative Hector DeSantos and FBI Agent Aaron “Uzi” Uziel sort out who is behind the bombings, Uzi's personal demons not only jeopardize the investigation but may sit at the heart of a tangle of lies that threaten to trigger an international terrorist attack.
Hailed by political thriller master Vince Flynn as “a smart, complex novel that explodes from the page,” and by Lee Child as "a great thriller" that's “fast, hard, and intelligent,” Hard Target is a ticking time bomb that keeps you clinging to the edge of your seat...
Note: Hard Target also features National Bestselling Author Alan Jacobson's famed FBI Profiler, Karen Vail, in a key role affecting national security.

This book was good until it started to blame the United States for all terrorist actions and the idea of talking to terrorists while they are murdering your family. unfortunately this happened towards the end of the book

Top notch writing and excellent audiobook
Excellent story with an amazing plot! It begins with a gripping crime. The President-elect and company are assassinated mid-air by an unknown assailant. Now it's up to FBI agent Aaron Uziel to find the culprits and bring them to justice. Even the sitting president personally taps Uziel to find those responsible, but what he doesn't know is he's in for the ride of his life. Top notch writing. Narrator Paul Christy has a great voice and knack for tapping into each character. I only wish he narrated the entire series!
