Description

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER

“Take my word for it, James Reece is one rowdy motherf***er. Get ready!” —Chris Pratt, star of The Terminal List, coming to Amazon Prime

“They’re great, man. They lock you in. They’re gripping.” —Joe Rogan, on the Terminal List series

The fourth thriller in the “so powerful, so pulse-pounding, so well-written” (Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author) Terminal List series follows former Navy SEAL James Reece as he is entrusted with a top-secret CIA mission of retribution twenty years in the making.

It’s been twenty years since 9/11, two decades since the United States was attacked on home soil and set out to make the guilty pay with their lives. In the shadows, the enemy has been patient—learning, and adapting. And the enemy is ready to strike again.

A new president offers hope to a country weary of conflict. He’s a young, popular, self-made visionary…but he’s also a man with a secret.

Halfway across the globe a regional superpower struggles with sanctions imposed by the United States and her European allies, a country whose ancient religion spawned a group of ruthless assassins. Faced with internal dissent and extrajudicial targeted killings by the United States and Israel, the Supreme Leader puts a plan in motion to defeat the most powerful nation on earth.

Meanwhile, a young PhD student has gained access to a bioweapon thought to be confined to a classified military laboratory known only to a select number of officials. A second-generation agent, he has been assigned a mission that will bring his adopted homeland to its knees.

With Jack Carr’s signature “absolutely intense” (Chuck Norris) writing and “gripping authenticity” (The Real Book Spy), The Devil’s Hand is a riveting and timely thriller that will leave you gasping for breath.

    I think this book misses the mark in the story of James Reece. The events of 2020 obviously influenced this book. It is a convenient departure from the story. I didn’t like it at all. The Terminal List, True Believer and Savage were fantastic! I was really looking forward to The Devil’s Hand and it was a let down. I am excited to see where the next book goes. I hope it redeems the storyline.

    This book follows on the heels of my favorite Jack Carr book - Savage Son. This book is a solid read. The research Carr put into this book shows and shows well. Carr leaves a few great cliffhangers there for you to keep coming back for. Can’t wait to find out why the note from the Wagoneer kept JR in the game. Thank you Jack for the good read - even if it wasn’t Savage Son. But hey, what book is..?

    Exciting book to the end. Written by the mind of some one who “has been there” liked and had a chuckle with the Joe Rogan line and the other subtle interjections such as the Brad Thor book-paying tribute to others in your craft. Also so right on to the back drop of global infections and chaos. True “art imitates life” and vice versa. Though not a complaint and being a physician myself “did he have to ...?” Again great read.
