Six days ago, a series of explosions devastated Washington, DC, targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash. Now that the initial shock of the catastrophe is over, key Washington officials are up in arms over whether to make friends or foes of the agents who stepped between the enemy’s bullets and countless American lives regardless of the legal consequences. Not for the first time, Rapp finds himself in the frustrating position of having to illustrate the realities of national security to politicians whose view from the sidelines is inevitably obstructed.

Meanwhile, three of the al Qaeda terrorists are still at large, and Rapp has been unofficially ordered to find them by any means necessary. No one knows the personal, physical, and emotional sacrifices required of the job better than Rapp. When he sees Nash cracking under the pressure of the mission and the memories of the horrors he witnessed during the terrorist attack, he makes a call he hopes will save his friend, assuage the naysayers on Capitol Hill, and get him one step closer to the enemy before it’s too late. Once again, Rapp proves himself to be a hero unafraid “to walk the fine line between the moral high ground and violence” (Salt Lake Tribune ) for our country’s safety, for the sake of freedom, for the pursuit of honor.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Coley | 2/19/2014

    " The first Vince Flynn book I read was full of action. This one was more conversations. Interesting tho', I listened to this book while hearing were held on Capitol Hill and the book added an interesting perspective. I kinda felt sorry for the Hakeem as a misunderstood terrorist. I wondered if he will end up in another book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Kent | 2/18/2014

    " This is a well written and fun series.... They have enough twists to keep you involved and read quickly.... Similar to Clive Cussler, or James Rollins..... Great for laying by the pool these summer days... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 2/16/2014

    " Not as gripping as his past books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 2/15/2014

    " I've never read Vince Flynn before, but I think I will. I enjoyed this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zelda | 2/4/2014

    " Good action thriller. Audio book is even better than reading- "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy | 1/29/2014

    " Another good read from Vince Flynn! Although,he seems to be stuck in a rut with his last few book subjects. They all deal with terriorism. timely but, getting tired of that subject. However, I will continue to read his books as they come out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 1/28/2014

    " Another fun Vince Flynn book! I'm guessing Vince must have read the feedback from readers on Extreme Measures not having enough Mitch Rapp (felt like a Mike Nash spinoff book), because this one was all Mitch!! Right from the first page we were with Mitch and we never moved away from him for very long. The only reason this book didn't get 5 stars is that it was more like a chase than an actual story - really just wrapping up after the aftermath of the previous book. And, I missed spending time with Kennedy in this one, as she was barely present. As is often the case with Vince Flynn books, this one had some eerie similarities with the Boston marathon terrorist attacks. Often when I see horrible things on the news, I think to myself "I hope someone like Mitch Rapp is working in the shadows taking care of business." He is definitely an iconic character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda Gibbons | 1/28/2014

    " A spy story where the spies have real lives. Good drama but not intense. Shuffled around so you could see what the different characters were doing in their plan to bomb numerous American targets at once and still show how the good guys were keeping on top of things but always a step behind. I did enjoy the parts that showed world leading countries cooperating and secreting sharing their intell on suspected terrorists adn cells. "

    " started reading this book on Nov. 4 2010 and finished on the 10th, I couldn't put it down. Good Book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 1/12/2014

    " Great book. A bit different than the rest of the Mitch Rapp series. It picks up almost immediately after "Extreme Measures" and involves the search for the terrorists that committed the attacks in the other book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 12/31/2013

    " Vince Flynn is one of the best authors I have ever read. And was the nicest guy in the world when we met him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 12/30/2013

    " Counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp tracks down 3 terrorists who blew up a bldg, killing 185 people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 12/22/2013

    " This entire 13 book series was spectacular. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Thomas | 12/11/2013

    " A very good book for Flynn although I'm really starting to wonder what is in store for Mitch Rapp?? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Magnus Hilding | 12/9/2013

    " The weakest read in he series so far, and Flynn is airing his political views way too much which is irrelevant for the story and just annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve West | 12/7/2013

    " Like all Vince Flynn books, it's lit candy. If you like Tom Clancy stuff these are good reads. I can usually finish one in a day and I read all of his books in a pretty short time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Burt | 11/24/2013

    " I love his lack of PC in all his books. Mitch Rapp is my hero. Rapp outs his fellow agent in order to protect his family as he chases the terrorists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jon | 4/30/2013

    " A good read if you like CIA novels "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail Strickland | 12/22/2012

    " Typical Mitch Rapp book-kicking butt and taking names. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 12/20/2012

    " Mitch Rapp returns in another great CIA thriller. As one of my favorite book characters I can only hope our nation has many Rapps to keep us safe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 9/9/2012

    " As always, an author and series I can depend on! Fast paced story lines with the ring of possible realities, and a look behind the scenes of the CIA spooks... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trent Scholler | 8/6/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raymond | 6/26/2012

    " We have enjoyed several cruises to The Azores, Nassau in the Bahamas and trips to Branson so it was really interesting that these locales were featured in this novel. There are several loose ends dangling at the conclusion of this novel that I expect to be ended in his next novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy Watt | 6/21/2012

    " This latest in Flynn's Mitch Rapp series keeps you aware of the real threat of terrorism. It is a great exciting patriotic novel; Mitch Rapp achieves what most of us would like to but cannot because we are normal Americans with more going on in our lives that protecting our nation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 4/23/2012

    " Another fine read. The only problem is that there are no more books in the series to read. I can tell the amount of research and thought that Vince Flynn does going into each of these stories. I must say his hard work is definetly rewarded by a great series of novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 2/3/2012

    " Love it when Rapp gets the bad guys. But Mike Nash... too annoying. I hope Flynn gets rid of him somehow. Whiners don't belong in the business. "

    " Another decent entry in this series. I am finding it harder and harder to focus on these books so maybe I'll take a break from them for a while and come back to them if I can. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheri | 4/27/2011

    " Another very good entry in the Mitch Rapp series. No break in the action, and lots of characters to root for or against. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 3/29/2011

    " Senator Clark finally gets what he deserves for trying to kill Mitch in the last book. "

    " Another great Mitch Rapp thriller! This seris is hard to put down, and e-readers make it too easy to buy all the books in the series and just keep reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 1/18/2011

    " Fast paced. Resolved some plot lines that needed trimming. Some of his characters are a bit charactured. "
