Black Ice by Brad Thor Book Summary


“[A]nother instant classic.” —The Real Book Spy
“The undisputed master of blending geopolitics with spycraft…a thriller aficionado’s dream.” —The Providence Journal

The new Cold War is about to go hot.

#1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most intense thriller yet.

Scot Harvath is having his best summer ever. With a cottage on the fjord, a boat, and his beautiful girlfriend Sølvi, he’s got everything he could possibly want. But out of vacation days and long overdue back home, America’s top spy has a decision to make—return, or submit his resignation.

When his deadly past comes calling, though, he’ll be left with no choice at all.

Leaving his favorite Oslo café, Harvath watches as a ghost climbs out of a taxi—a man he killed years ago, halfway around the world. How is he still alive? And what is he doing in Norway?

In a race against time that will take him high above the Arctic Circle, Harvath is tested in ways he has never imagined and pushed to a limit few human beings could ever endure.

If he succeeds, he’ll walk away with everything. If he fails, the United States and its allies will be at the mercy of one of the world’s most dangerous actors.

Current political faction! Great read.Another excellent Harvarth adventure. Very timely too with China and Russia..Score: 4/5

Another Excellent Harvath AdventureThese stories are more relevant than ever as China and Russia seem intent on aggressive power plays. Very well paced and balanced novel. Good characters and storylines that keep the pages turning. Thanks Brad..Score: 5/5

Black IceI have been a Scott Harvath/Brad Thor fan since the Lions of Lucerne. There was not enough character development of Xing Fen but there was too much development of Spencer. While I will purchase Thor’s next book, it will be my last purchase if the author does not pick up the pace..Score: 3/5

Atco1Great read and as usual excellent character and plot development..Score: 5/5

Just OkThe last two books have felt … rushed. The Solvi story happening so soon after the trauma Scot suffered is just too far-fetched, and again, rushed. The countless pages spent on the Mercer/Carlton history was a preamble to nothing. It was actually boring. I’m not sure where the Scot Harvath series is going next, but I am beginning to lose interest..Score: 3/5

Incredible again!!Like catching and hooking a fish. Brad Thor has you trying to figure out the different twists and they always twist in a way you wouldn’t think. Always a great suspenseful read..Score: 5/5

Best Brad Thor book yet!Best novel yet. Brad’s writing style is getting more complex and plots intertwine very well. The topics are very relevant and he brings in real life occurrences into the books to set the story that is very believable..Score: 5/5

Decent enoughGood story all based on a coincidence, which the characters don’t believe in coincidences. But whatever. Also a lot of fluff that had little or nothing to do with the plot. But whatever. And I felt like the author kind of got lazy and just wanted to finish the book. But whatever. Four stars might be a bit of an exaggeration But whatever I still liked it enough to finish it so kudos..Score: 4/5

Fabulous!I just finished Black Ice and like all of the previous novels by Brad Thor, I could not put it down!.Score: 5/5

Ok, not greatLove the Harvath character, but the stories are getting more predictable. Not a lot of depth to this book..Score: 3/5

Awesome Arctic settingGreat story as usual, but what made this one fun is the inside view of the gritty, challenging Arctic area of far northern Norway. I loved the helo pilots — very minor characters but I felt like I knew them personally; the scene where they play Sweet Emotion while taking off into an insane storm was just cinematic and perfect. Those pilots were exactly like most real Russian pilots I’ve ever met. Bold, funny, and fearless. Black Ice is just a great book. There was plenty of character tension, a nice side-plot with Scott and his girlfriend, and brutally exciting action (hint: polar bears aren’t cuddly!) Also revealing the inner workings of how dangerous China is geopolitically was both timely and frighteningly true..Score: 5/5

Black Ice.Well researched. Reading about Norwegian environment and people was excellent. His knowledge of potential Arctic warfare and Russian and Chinese subterfuge was informative. Liked learning about US icebreakers, the lack of, and potential issues it causes was quite interesting..Score: 5/5

OkIt could have been a bit more action in it. I also thought that the book was a very quick read. As I was reading it before I knew it I was at the end and to look to see if I missed any pages. Overall I like his character..Score: 4/5

ConsistentI have been with this series since book 1. I have yet to be disappointed. Brad Thor just like his main character is very good at what he does. I look forward to the next release in this series. Every June I have it on my calendar..Score: 4/5

Went by Too Quickley!The pacing on this was great, never lagging from over-description of details. Novels should be entertaining, informative, without beating you over the head with personal politics or useless information. Enjoy the maturing of Scott Harvath’s character and changing life view with his “Solvi” relationship, who is of equal strength and intelligence-although I missed her quick quips and witty comebacks about Norwegian girls from the previous novel. I’ve read all the Harvath series novels. It’s time for Harvath’s life to move on in a positive way. Brad Thor always hits his mark with hot topics of the day regarding Russia/Chinese aggression. You can’t help wonder about the U.S.A.’s state of readiness with cancel culture and political correctness dominating so much of our lives. China and Russia don’t have that problem. Overall a Great Read!!!.Score: 5/5

Another good yarn with an underlying messageThere is something reassuring in reading these admittedly formulaic novels. Yes they blindly Reinforce many of our deep seated beliefs and mores. Yet is it so bad that some of us believe in patriotism, decency and commitment to the greater good? Chuck.Score: 4/5

Black IceBrad, great job coming up with another great scenario, well researched as always. Thank you for #21. I have read all of them twice and about half three times. The Artic took the edge off the current heat wave, here in So. California. Always fascinated by your acknowledgments. I have met a few of them and totally agree, great people.
