Hidden Order (Scot Harvath #12) by Brad Thor

High-profile kidnap victims in Washington, D.C. start turning up dead. When the ransom demand is made public, panic turns to terror. Scot Harvath standalone from series. Settings travel to Somalia, Boston, South America with history from the Federal Reserve and Colonial America. The problems reflect present USA - Evil prevails when good men do nothing.

I'm not normally a CIA thriller sort of girl, but I have to admit I really enjoyed this one.  It's fast-paced reading with interesting characters and plot.  I had a little trouble keeping some of the outlying characters straight in my head, but since they weren't integral to the story, I didn't worry too much about it. 
The most fascinating part of this book for me were the murder scenes.  Each in itself is a work of art.  Our murderer is the most fascinating character in the book and he really knows his business.  Each scene is carried out with ingenuity and written in such a way that you can actually smell the fear, taste the violence, bask in the genius.
If you're a CIA thriller sort of person, I can't imagine you passing this book up.  It's the perfect read for any thriller fan.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
