The brand new issue of National Review carries my profile of author Brad Thor.
With at least 7 million books in print, Thor is one of the most successful thriller writers now at work. He’s also an unabashed conservative. There are other right-of-center bestselling novelists: Vince Flynn has lampooned liberal pieties in his Mitch Rapp series, and Stephen Hunter’s latest novel, Soft Target, includes a send-up of President Obama. Yet perhaps no other bard of the potboiler is as forthright about politics as Thor, who not only inserts them into his books but also tweets his opinions to a wide following and even stumps for candidates.
