Phantom

“Singularity – A life-altering moment, when machines first match, and then exceed, the finite limits of human intelligence…a rip in the fabric of current civilization. And it’s just around the corner.”

— Ted Bell

A rash of seemingly unconnected catastrophic events rock the United States and other parts of the world.  This Phantom menace has world leaders stumped until Alex Hawke returns as Ted Bell’s agent provocateur fighting the unknown and very powerful foe.  Phantom has all that you would expect from a Ted Bell  novel and Bell even delves into the realm of the science fiction a bit and Alex is faced with additional threats from some unsavory Russians as he protects his “family.”

Full Black

Released in the heat of the summer of 2011, Full Black adds more heat as super agent Scot Harvath is once again thrust in the middle of a vast terrorist network.  Their intent is the same, but the methods and leaders may surprise you.  Author Brad Thor hits another home run in this latest thriller as Harvath and company race across the globe struggling to prevent further attacks.  The list of perpetratorstouch on all of America’s “enemies;” China, Russia, Middle East, Britain, and Globalists.  All Harvath knows is that his security is compromised hence the need to go “full black” refering to deep deep cover.
