    1. Most of the other people reviewing this book really enjoyed it. I just found it very long-winded in explaining everything and confusing. Very preachy about God and country, too. Some kind of negative agenda with the UN, too, that wasn't clear. I do like these kind of books normally, but didn't work for me.However it's #14 in the series, and maybe I needed to read the series from the beginning. He's a very popular author. But when you start skimming at page 150, then at 200 you start flicking thr [...]

    2. “One word kept going through his mind. It started with F and rhymed with truck”. As a reader, one was going through mine too, it starts with S and rhymes with grit.The narrative here is all over the place as per my example above. The full F word is used a number of times in the books, so why the occasional reference as if you were speaking to an eight year old? Bizarre and distracting. Brad Thor is an inconsistent writer, he has written some pacey, solid and enjoyable thrillers and then he p [...]

    3. The worth of a culture, in his opinion, could be boiled down to one thing -- how well that culture took care of its weakest members, particularly its women and children."Great societal commentary from Brad Thor, early in the 14th Scot Harvath novel. Dispatched by the Old Man to determine why a village and mobile hospital were torched, Scot battles African warlords followed by fanatics intent on eradicating much of the world's population by (view spoiler)[ biological warfare (hide spoiler)], taki [...]

    4. Thor returns with his fourteenth Scot Harvath novel, tackling an angle readers have yet to see in the rough and tumble former Navy Seal. After an anonymous video makes its way to America, what is depicted is nothing short of devastating. An entire African village destroyed by fire, purposely torched for reasons unknown. Harvath is dispatched as a favour, finding himself in the jungles of Congo as he tries to decipher what's been going on. What begins as a suspected rebel slaughter of a village t [...]

    5. It's always interesting to see what political hot buttons will set author Brad Thor on a conservative roll in his books featuring counter-terrorism operative Scot Harvath - this is the 15th in the series. Sure enough, expressed mostly through Harvath's musings, he hits a bunch of them here, ranging from the United Nations and CIA to the government's penchant for spying on citizens to the belief that what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander (i.e if our enemies do it to us, why shouldn't [...]

    6. What did I just read? Was that seriously written by Brad Thor?Usually with these types of books, (political thrillers), I do not weigh in on the character development, or the author's writing style, or how believable the plot is. It usually boils down to: was I entertained? With Code of Conduct, I couldn't get past how disjointed the novel read. I felt like I was reading a story that a high school jock submitted to his English teacher for a fiction assignment. If I was reminded one more time in [...]

    7. My first Brad Thor book - and I really enjoyed it. I found it to be well written and quite realistic in its description of firearms and special ops tactics - and I'm a real perfectionist when it comes to accuracy in these areas. Very compelling story, very readable, a real page turner. Now I'm going to read more of the Scot Harvath series!

    8. This was a very good political thriller. Thor is an excellent story teller and this book reestablishes his skill but I do have concerns. I criticized his last couple of books for allowing his personal politics to seep into the speeches of his characters. As far as I was concerned this book was a make it or break it challenge to my continuing my readership. It seems that there is more writer and less ideologue evidenced in this work. Nevertheless there are problems, correctable problems, but stil [...]

    9. In "Code of Conduct" ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath is sent to the Democratic Republic of Congo to learn what happened to a WHO health clinicHe and his team discover that the health clinic is empty but has been sanitized. Further investigation shows that there had been a blood bath. They search the area and come upon a father and his blind son and learn what transpired.In a linked story, we learn of a beautiful woman who was trapped in a sex slave operation and what happens when she's had too much to [...]

    10. The idea of an ebola threat is, literally, yesterday's news by now. Was it really just last year that we were all worried that disease was gonna spread throughout the country and kill us all? But trust Brad Thor to come up with a way to make it hit home once again, in a way that I'm pretty reasonably sure could never have happened for real. Seriously, Mr. Thor's got a talent for subjecting the US to serious catastrophes that should really bring all semblance of peaceful society to a permanent en [...]

    11. This book was given to me for free. I got it from First-Reads. This book is a great thriller. It starts with Harvath going to check if anyone survived an attack on one of CARE's clinics in the Congo. When the team Harvath is with gets there, they find everyone is gone and the place has been sanitized thoroughly. There is a large trench nearby and jet fuel fumes. Near the trench are human bones. Harvath starts on a journey around the world finding out why someone would do such a thing, and what [...]

    12. SUBJECTIVE READER REVIEW FOLLOWS:In hindsight, I believe it was a mistake to read Thor's BLACK LIST right before reading his latest release, CODE OF CONDUCT, which takes the Black List and transforms it into a Department of Homeland Security database called Main Core. Of course, Scot Harvath's on the list, as are thousands of others who don't tow the line of blind obedience to the wishes of big government. From a purely plot-of-the-novel perspective, CODE OF CONDUCT's main antagonist, Pierre Dam [...]

    13. I enjoy reading this series. Brad Thor is a great thriller writer. However, two summers ago he wrote a book titled HIDDEN ORDER that was about the Federal Reserve and conspiracy theories and in telling that story, Thor included history lesson after history lesson and for good measure he mixed it all with a lot of supposition. He did very little to support the soapbox he’d created through credible literary means and despite the fact the book got many great reviews, I’ve maintained my opinion [...]

    14. I am writing a book- report for english IV with mrs.Orona as my teacher. Of a thriller Code of Conduct by Brad Thor, there are 356 and one publisher Emily Bestler Books.The reason I choose this book because it look good and I had no book to read that day so I got one off my teacher’s book shelf and that one was the only one that didn't look boring I like the cover of the book it has color color on it and the author is the #1 New York Times bestselling author.The main character are Scot Harvath [...]

    15. Thrilling and frightening because it's possible--a fantastic book.You know it's going to be great when the book starts out with the population of Washington D.C. desperately trying to escape the city at all costs. Flashback a few months to the origin of the panic. A short video hints at a potential incident of the kind that only Scot Harvath can combat and he is dispatched halfway around the world to investigate.A worldwide conspiracy is slowly revealed that involves some at the highest levels o [...]

    16. Wow, Thor really did it this time! He is a master of international espionage and intrigue, mixed with little known historical quotes and dates to add to the mystery. He hit it out of the park in every genre he touched in this novel. Of course, Scot Harvath, his leading man and problem solver, gets tapped to untangle this globe-spanning drama. He uses his career long contacts to build a team of extraordinary talent to extricate the information that will eliminate this horrific international disas [...]

    17. I won this book through and agreed to give it an honest review. Now I'm a new fan of Brad Thor! Hidden inside of the most powerful organizations lurks a secret so astounding that it's unbelievable and suddenly Scot Harvath's world would change drastically! Four seconds of a video captured halfway around the world and sent anonymously to Washington sets a horror loose that makes the Black Plague look like the measles! Someone has a devious plan to eliminate over a BILLION people and set the worl [...]

    18. This was the first book I ever read by Brad Thor, and I was completely blown away. Thor's writing style is incredible. It's detailed, but not so detailed that it loses your attention. It's formal, but the formality only adds to the suspense of the plot and doesn't make it boring in any way. I think Thor is truly brilliant to be able to create the plots, and all the exciting twists and turns in between, that he does. He also develops characters beautifully so that by the end of the book you feel [...]

    19. As usual for Thor-THRILLING!I can't link the title to the story, but suffice it to say that Scot is back with one hell of a mission all over the world. He starts by heading to Congo, and ends up finishing intsk, tsk. I admire the team of characters that Scot works with, including his friends. The antagonists in this story are astoundingly by far the most evil characters even I couldn't imagine. Scot has a new girlfriend, but we don't really learn much about her. I highly recommend this book, as [...]

    20. Definite recommend. The plot is around an event in the Congo. Since I know little about the Congo I had to do some reading. The Congo is a very poor country but has hugggge natural resources one of the largest in the world. I also was not aware how large the Congo is: the size of Europe.Oh, btw, very good book. Great plot. Book written about three years ago but When reading it I swore I was watching CNN today.

    21. When a high-level UN official appears to have created his own deadly epidemic he intends to use to re-create the world in line with his own very specific ideas, by firstly killing off about 90% of the world's population. Scot Harvath has his hands more than full trying to thwart or at least minimize the increasing devastation. A very imaginative thriller. Recommended to fans of the Scot Harvath series.

    22. Harvath is the Angel of Death! I could not wait for #15 in Brad Thor's series featuring Scot Harvath. Brads political leanings seem to be reflected in these stories. I think he fears for our country as I do and it's reflected in this novel. I hope we have people like Harvath within the services of the USA. This book was really different from any in the past. OUTSTANDING!!!! Buy it! You will not be disappointed! Can't wait for #16.

    23. Wow!!!I was reading a book by another author whose work I was unfamiliar with, and was through the first 25% but the book just had not grabbed me. I had heard of Brad Thor,though had not yet read anything of his, and so decided to give him a try. I must say that within the first two minutes I realized I c

    24. The 14th instalment of Scot Harvath's adventures does not disappoint, but it's not among the best in the series either. The author focused on giving the main character a bit of emotional depth, but at the expense of the story, which at some moments is really weak.

    25. ChillingOne thing about these books. You hope they never come true. But they certainly keep you entranced to the last page. This one was a bit close to home and chilling to the last. But it is well written and a pleasure to read.

    26. Wow. This author never fails to satisfy with nonstop action. The only 2 complaints I have are, 1) never start reading if you want to get some sleep, and 2) now I have to wait for what comes next.

    27. GoodreadExcellent and as all his books well researched. Would recommend to all who enjoy this gender. Look forward to his next book

    28. My first Brad Thor book, and a decent spy/military/suspense/conspiracy read, Its narrative moves quickly, and the jumps in location/people are easy to follow. The conspiracy is relative to our times and perceptibly possible. If you like reading such authors as Dan Brown or Tom Clancy, you'll like this.I almost didn't read it after seeing another reviewer describe it [mistakenly] as misogynist, but it was a free read (off my hubby's book pile) and filled a spot on a reading challenge, so I went a [...]
