Elle Russ chats with Brad Thor - the #1 New York Times bestselling author of twenty-one thrillers, including Near Dark, Backlash (one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of the Year), Spymaster (declared by The Washington Times as “one of the all-time best thriller novels”), The Last Patriot, Blowback (one of the “Top 100 Killer Thrillers of All Time” by NPR), The Lions of Lucerne…all the way up to his latest book Black Ice.
Known for his innovative plots and extensive knowledge of intelligence, special operations, and terrorist communities, Thor was recruited into the Department of Homeland Security’s “Red Cell” program: an elite group of writers and artists commissioned to brainstorm terrorist scenarios for the U.S. government. To collect valuable research for his novels, Thor has traveled around the world, including a trip to Afghanistan where he shadowed a black ops team.
Brad has appeared on FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and PBS to discuss terrorism and current events, as well as how closely his novels of international intrigue parallel the real threats facing the world today.
