Riassunto: When the president is left with no other option, suddenly the unthinkable becomes the only course of action.
When American doctor Julia Gallo is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the terms of her ransom leave the United States with only one course of action -- covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath.
In a dangerous assignment that the United States government will deny any knowledge of, Harvath must secretly infiltrate Kabul's notorious Policharki Prison and free the man the kidnappers demand as ransom -- al-Qaeda mastermind Mustafa Khan.
But when Harvath arrives, he quickly learns that there is more to the kidnapping than anyone dares to admit. And as the subterfuge is laid bare, Harvath must examine his own career of hunting down and killing terrorists to ask himself if he has what it takes to help one of the world's worst go free.
That answer will lead him on the most perilous journey of his life, where the only thing that can save him, and the woman he is trying to rescue, is his own government's refusal to admit he even exists.
Brimming with the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines authenticity only someone with Brad Thor's military and intelligence experience could bring to the table, The Apostle doubles down on the blockbuster success of The Last Patriot and reaffirms Thor's status as the master of the political thriller.
