#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin --now a major motion picture

An exhilarating political thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn, praised as "the best pure adrenaline-charged action writer out there today" ( The Providence Journal ).

When Washington, DC's National Counterterrorism Center is struck by a series of devastating explosions, the results are catastrophic--185 killed, including public officials and CIA employees. Such an act of extreme violence calls for extreme measures--and elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp, joining forces with trusted team member Mike Nash, finds himself in the frustrating position of having to illustrate the realities of national security to government officials up in arms over the agents who rushed in to save countless American lives. Meanwhile, with three al Qaeda terrorists still at large and Nash traumatized by the horrors he witnessed during the attack, Rapp must help his friend while threading his way through the naysayers on Capitol Hill--and silently, swiftly, do what he must for the sake of his country and the pursuit of honor.

Plot was interesting. Writing pretty good. Characters rather thin and extreme (extremely crazy, extremely perfect, extremely shallow), with the main terrorist being the most interesting in the book. But the plot relied too much on the crazy irrationality of one terrorist to move it forward. Still would have rated it higher were it not for the constant bludgeoning with pro torture, far right themes that stopped the action in it's tracks and contributed nothing to the plot. The author could have made his points in a much more integrated fashion.

Another excellent 'Mitch' novel. -I've recently read the entire series and found them all very good and gripping.

Flynn's stuff just flows so well. Mitch Rapp is quickly joining the ranks to the the super elite status level - standing side by side with Jack Ryan, Charley Castillo, Bob or Earl Swagger or any of those Clive Cussler heroes. Big fan - please sir - may i have some more?

I actually think this Flynn book is better than the most recent two or three. There is no doubt that Flynn has the ability to keep your attention and write a page-turner, even though the formula is exactly the same from book to book. I admit that I'm pretty liberal politically and I can suspend my natural inclinations and ignore most of his bashing of everyone that leans left of Michelle Bachmann. However, this time he calls anyone a hypocrite who does not support torture, but does support abortion. He does this several times and it makes no sense to the context of the novel. Even from Vince Flynn, that's crazy talk! Leave your political agendas at home and just write the story.

Unfortunately another 'phone in' by Flynn, must be bored with the whole 'writing thing' or fulfilling a 30 book contract or something.... This makes the last 4 I think? The first half dozen were pretty good. Up until his wife got blowed up good. Not sure which one that was though....

As always a thriller from Vince Flynn.

Mitch Rapp has been the hero and many preious thrillers. This is an exciting read and should be a must for someone looking for action and intrique.
