Brad Thor Biography:

Raised in Chicago, Illinois Brad Thor was born to be an author. As a child, Thor spent hours writing down story ideas and engrossed in novels. After graduating high school in Chicago, Thor studied at the University of Southern California where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelors of Arts degree in creative writing and film production. While at USC, Thor was mentored by award winning novelist T.C. Boyle.

After graduating from USC, Thor became the award winning creator, writer, television producer, and host of Traveling Lite. In this public television series, Thor travels to locations around the world providing historical information, travel tips, and more. Thor gained practical insight for many of his books when he worked the Department of Homeland Security as a member of their Red Cell Analytic Department.

The Red Cell unit calls upon individuals in a variety of different fields from academia to computer science to envision possible terrorist attacks and plan how to stop them. Currently, Thor has written twelve novels with a thirteenth due to be released on July 9th, 2013. His books have achieved international acclaim and his writing has been compared to Robert Ludlum who is arguable the most famous spy novelist of all time.

Brad Thor has steadily become one of the most popular authors in the United States. Thor’s books have become staples on the New York Times bestsellers list. Thor’s books are not just popular in the United States as they have been published in China, Denmark, Australia, Turkey, Vietnam and many other countries around the world. When not writing books, Brad Thor can be found on popular television and radio programs discussing terrorism.

Thor has hosted the Glenn Beck television and radio program, in addition to numerous appearances on FOX News, CNN, ABC, NBC, and PBS programs. Many of Thor’s books parallel important world issues or security concerns in the United States. The books read like news headlines from around the world. Thor is often called on to lecture at colleges and at a variety of law enforcement organizations to speak on how to forecast and plan for future threats. In preparation for writing The Apostle, Thor had the unique privilege of shadowing a Black Ops Special Forces unit in Afghanistan.

Currently, Brad resides with his wife in Chicago where he donates much of his free time to charitable causes like the Wounded Warrior Project, the Yellow Ribbon Fund, and the Salvation Army. Brad Thor’s first novel, The Lions of Lucerne, opens in the snowy mountains of Utah where a tragedy of unthinkable proportions has just occurred: the President of the United States is kidnapped and thirty Secret Service agents have been brutally massacred.

The person behind the attacks is the ruthless leader of the most dangerous and violent terrorist organization in the Middle East: Fatah. In this first novel, we meet the star of Brad Thor’s novels: Scot Harvath. A former Navy Seal and at this point a Secret Service agent Scot is the only hope for the President alive. With James Bonds’ charm and Jack Bauer’s brawn, Scot Harvath is the ultimate warrior.

In this book, Scot sets out on a mission that takes him around the world to avenge the death of his fellow agents and rescue the President. Like in every subsequent novel, Scot must bend the rules and risk his life to save the day. Reading the novel is like watching a Hollywood action movie in the theater. Scot’s efforts to find the President are hampered by a dangerous coalition of top government officials who are attempting to frame him for the terrorist attack.

Soon Scot is a wanted man in the United States and with nowhere left to go, Scot follows the trail of the terrorists to Switzerland.As we are introduced to Scot the reader instantly falls in love with him and eagerly awaits each new installment of his life. After saving the President from his kidnappers, Harvath picks up where he left off in Thor’s second novel The Path of the Assassin.

With the President safe and secure in Washington, Harvath sets out find, capture, and ultimately kill all those responsible for the deaths of his friends and fellow Secret Service agents. As he hunts for the mastermind, Hashim Nidal, Harvath becomes entangled in a world of espionage, violence, and action. With plans to destroy both Israel and the United States, Nidal becomes the most wanted man in the world.

Unfortunately, no one knows what he looks and Harvath is forced to do what he does best: track down and kill anyone in his path. The only question that remains is will Harvath be in time to save the world? As each novel is written, the mystery behind Scot Harvath emerges. A man without a family and with no ties is the ultimate machine. As the books progress we see Harvath mature, go through heartbreak when he loses the woman he loves, and grow into the ultimate fighting machine.

For many, Scot Harvath is the hero we always to be as children. Harvath combines personality, fitness, looks, and humor in one package. Brad Thor is the ultimate thriller writer in America today. Thor separates himself from other authors int he same genre with his excellent prose and compelling storylines. With his trusty protagonist, Scot Harvath, each of Thor’s novels set out to make the world a safer place.

However, Thor has become more than just an author as his books have become beacons for change and concern. With each book, Thor writes about future security threats and how they could impact our lives. Consequently, Brad Thor has been able to use his books to advocate for policy change and review. Each one of Thor’s books is guaranteed to keep you on your toes and wanting to read more. With suspense on every page, Brad Thor’s books are the ultimate in reading pleasure.

Therefore, the next time you are at a bookstore and looking for a page turning thriller pick up the latest best seller from Brad Thor. I’m willing to bet that his writing won’t disappoint you.

    Brad, I am 80 years old and have COPD. I have been been reading the Scot Harvath series. You are one fantastic author. My altimeter favorite is Tom Clancy and you definitely fill the void left after his death.
    I wait with great anticipation for the next book to be published. I really want to read as many of your novels as I can before I pas away. I really enjoyed reading the Athena Project. Those girls were right on!!!
    Thank you for making my life better through the wonderful books.

  3. Tony: 2 years ago

    I think one title is left out of this list — “The Athena Project” should come between “Foreign Influence” and “Full Black.” Don’t know its publication year.

    • Graeme: 2 years ago

      Hi Tony – that one is on the list already under standalone novels.

  4. Claudia Logue: 2 years ago

    I am now on my third reading of the entire series. I absolutely love Brad Thor! A close second was always Vince Flynn followed by Lee Child. I can’t get enough of these books!

    • Phil Gingrich: 1 year ago

      Your review cracked me up. Your authors are my 3 favorites also but I probably like Mitch Rapp a tiny bit more than Harvath.

    Hi Mt. Thor. I have just finished my 11th book in the series. Unfortunately our libraries never have the books so I might be able to read them in order. Love the fact you include small sub-stories and how that story’s ending is a result of the main story’s ending. I am retired and can now read later in the evening. I do hope you continue to thrill us. Lord knows there is much in the real world now to provide the basis of new thrillers

      Check with your library and see if they support Libby or Overdrive. Get books online. Easier to get them in order that way. Libby, I think, is a bit better than Kindle for ease of use

    • Phil: 1 year ago

      Sagriff – See if your library participates in the Interlibrary Loan Program. You ask the library to find and borrow books (by specific title / author) from other libraries for you to read. I do this all the time, there is no charge for the service

    NOTHING Better. Vince Flynn is a close second with the Characters that Brad Thor gives . 2 or 3 books a month reading , now that I’ve retired , I can never get enough. 😁😁 Thanks…
    I have started Doing research On Topics Within the stories. Diving into the historical association give me Knowledge on the Fact Given.

    NOTHING Better. Vince Flynn is a close second with the Characters that Brad Thor gives . 2 or 3 books a month reading , now that I’ve retired , I can never get enough. 😁😁 Thanks…

    You might also enjoy the Pike Logan series by Brad Taylor

  9. Robert Gay II: 3 years ago

    Some of the Best Books I’ve read in some time love reading his books. Mixed with truths and fiction sometimes hard to distinguish the differences..

  10. Adrian: 3 years ago

    I have really enjoyed reading all of the Scot Harvath’s adventures.

    Black Ice seems to have been Scot Harvath’s swan song. Will his storyline continue or what other Brad Thor series should I begin?

    • Graeme: 3 years ago

      Well there’s not really any other series by Brad to begin πŸ™‚ So you’d have to check out some other spy thriller series. It’s my favourite genre so can give various suggestions. First one if you have not read it is the Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn, and later Kyle Mills after Vince passed.

    • Bill lenfestey: 3 years ago

      Although not a spy-type series, Charlie Fox thrillers by Zoe Sharp is also really good. Charlie was in British special forces before she was gang-raped by three fellow soldiers. She becomes a body guard for high-profile indivuals. A friend of mine told me she loves these books–it’s fun to read about a woman who is every bit as much a warrior as Scot Harvath is.

    • Shirley: 2 years ago

      The excitement of Scot Harvath’s exploits continues on July 12, 2022 with the much-anticipated Rising Tiger.

      Also love former Navy Seal Jack Carr! His James Reece character will be coming out with his 5th book May 17, 2022…In the Blood.
