The world’s most elite counterterrorism unit has just taken its game to an entirely new level. And not a moment too soon . . .From behind the rows of razor wire, a new breed of counterterrorism operator has emerged. Just as skilled, just as fearsome, and just as deadly as their colleagues, Delta Force’s newest members have only one thing setting them apart—their gender. Part of a top-secret, all-female program codenamed The Athena Project, four of Delta’s best and brightest women are about to undertake one of the nation’s deadliest assignments. When a terrorist attack in Rome kills more than twenty Americans, Athena Team members Gretchen Casey, Julie Ericsson, Megan Rhodes, and Alex Cooper are tasked with hunting down the Venetian arms dealer responsible for providing the explosives. But there is more to the story than anyone knows. In the jungles of South America, a young U.S. intelligence officer has made a grisly discovery. Surrounded by monoliths covered with Runic symbols, one of America’s greatest fears appears to have come true. Simultaneously in Colorado, a foreign spy is close to penetrating the mysterious secret the U.S. government has hidden beneath Denver International Airport. As Casey, Ericsson, Rhodes, and Cooper close in on their target, they will soon learn that another attack—one of unimaginable proportions—has already been set in motion, and the greatest threat they face may be the secrets kept by their own government.

Another quick read...this one falls in the middle of Thor books in terms of quality. The concept of an all-female Delta Force team was intriguing, but I found the characters somewhat thin and topical. Still fun to read, good escapism from the daily grind.

Oh for gawd's sake...Thor can't write strong women fershit. I wonder if his spouse belongs to the Junior League. (OK, OK, that was a low blow...rewind.)I don't think critical thinking was a competency identified for any of Mr. Thor's courses/curricula/degree(s), if plural. I've heard of knee-jerk...

3.0 The Athena Project
Since this is my first exploration of Brad Thor's world, I suspect there's some back story and character histories that were lost on me, which likely would have helped. Having said that, The Athena Project is a really good read, but the characterization (and the tendency to have too much happen off ...

I actually give it 4.5 stars. Just because the ending was rather... suddenly lame and just kind of ended. I enjoyed the book and I look forward to reading Brad Thor's other works. I did read this out of order so some of the character developments from some of Thor's other novels may have made more s...

Attention Scot Harvath loyalists----THIS IS NOT A HARVATH SERIES BOOK! IT IS A NEW SERIES< ::sigh::: I'm not sure why anyone expected this to be a Harvath novel, when the author clearly put it out that this was about the women of project Athena. We can't have our Scot and eat it too can we? --------...
