With Brad Thor’s standard espionage thrillers of lone government agents and rouge Black Ops plotting to take over the world.
The Athena Project is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale series of government conspiracy thrillers. Instead of typical male dominated roles, Brad Thor’s changes up the elite Delta force of Marines, to hard trained female operatives with just as much strength and wit as their male counterparts.
After a terrorist attack in Eastern Europe and gruesome find in the jungles of South America, four of the Delta’s brightest and best fighters from a new top-secret program of woman named The Athena Project, are charged with uncovering a plot that has been set in motion from the after-math of WWII. Hidden deep within our own government’s secrets, The Athena team has to uncover a plot kept hidden by all costs.
Interesting read and a definite pick up. The non-stop action of the world of Brad Thor is packaged nicely in this page turning thriller of women operatives who not only carry a mean punch, but have the looks to prove it.5 JAGS
