The 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), is now available unabridged from Encore for a great value!

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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 XXVII | 2/17/2014

    " This is my first book from Vince Flynn and honestly, I found it quite disappointing. I did not really get into the story for some reason. From what I've heard, Flynn's books are supposedly amazing but from my experience, this book was just another walk in the park, just saying. Nevertheless, I would definitely give Flynn another try just to be fair. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robbie | 2/14/2014

    " Another opportunity to go along for the ride with Mitch Rapp. Excellent, as usual. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay Barndt | 2/7/2014

    " Mitch Rapp is one of my all-time favorite fiction characters! Like Vince Flynn's writing style slightly better than D. Baldacci; all of his books are easy, fast reads. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie Butler Marquis | 2/3/2014

    " I love Vince Flynn. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenni Boyd | 1/29/2014

    " I am a huge Vince Flynn fan, but sadly this book disappointed me, it revolved too much around the political arena which made it hard to follow the actual thread of the story. I have always loved the character Mitch Rapp, but did not like how he was portrayed in this book, to me it was bordering on character assassination, not sure if Vince Flynn is planning to retire him, if that is the case I would rather see him go out in a blaze of glory "

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

    " This is a great follow-up to Extreme Measures. It has all the right elements -- suspense, mystery, political intrigue and betrayal -- combined with a sharp-edged focus on current issues in the war on terror. I couldn't put this book down once I started reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 1/27/2014

    " Another fine Vince Flynn novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annie | 1/26/2014

    " I've read several of the books in this series out of order. I didn't like the way that some facts that appear in American Assassin are are contradicted or at least portrayed differently in this book. I might not have noticed the incongruity if I had read the books chronologically. Also, there was a lot of political emphasis in this story which I felt muddied the waters and distracted from what little espionage there actually was in the book. I didn't really care about all the medals of honor or fighting senators and found it aggravating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Azinger | 1/18/2014

    " Any Mitch Rapp story is always a thrilling read, but like some other reviewers, I found the ending of this one to be too predictable, hence 4 stars instead of 5. But Pursuit of Honor is still a fun read and Mitch Rapp is one of my favorite spy guys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Gifford | 1/12/2014

    " A classic Vince Flynn book. I couldn't put it down. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mark | 1/1/2014

    " I set this book aside when it became clear the author was overwhelming the story with his need to preach his own opinions about such controversial subjects as immigration, abortion, and on and on. Not what I was looking for in a thriller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ray Harrison | 12/16/2013

    " Great read-Honor is tough, and in this Mitch Rapp adventure, the thrills keep coming, stronger and stronger...it wasn't so much I didn't want the book to end, I was afraid of the ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodney Johnson | 12/14/2013

    " Loved it when the protagonist let's the Barbara Boxer type senator have it with her hypocrisy during a Senate investigation for allegedly using torture to restrain terrorists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 12/7/2013

    " I like these "24" like books for the suspense, terrorist insights, etc., but I just can't stand the language and violence. Thus, I think I'm going to have to quit them after only reading 2 of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine Hasha | 12/5/2013

    " Love Vince Flynn. Never fails to deliver a great story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rick | 12/5/2013

    " Typical trashy paperback. The two main characters, Mitch Rapp and Mike Nash, are stereotypical rambo types. There is a strong anti due process them that I found a little offensive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 3/30/2013

    " I have read all of Flynn's books. They are what I call "Political Thrillers/Killer" books. I love LOVE Mitch Rapp and I love the way Flynn's books have an authenticity to them. This book however felt like an continuation of the last book. Just more info and less story. It could have been better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie | 3/18/2013

    " You can't go wrong with Mitch Rapp. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 2/27/2013

    " Good action thriller with clear compelling characters and plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy | 2/5/2013

    " As usual Vince Flynn delivers. I literally held my breath and could not move except to turn a page for the last hundred pages of this book. Mitch Rapp is the man. I am sad to be heading toward the end of this series, because I can't get enough of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ajiek Stoneman | 12/23/2012

    " Great reading!! "

    " Great read...as always! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bruce | 9/13/2012

    " Mitch Rapp kicks butt, again. Not my favorite of the Mitch Rapp books. They have gotten a little stale, I guess. Same basic plot line, but with less action. I guess Mitch is getting older... Ending seemed rushed. Too much bad language. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth A | 1/22/2012

    " Great Mitch Rapp novel....he takes no prisoners and does not tolerate bs. Love that about this character. Quick read. Always enjoy these books. Breezed thru this awaiting my Amazon order for Drums of Autumn. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christopher | 10/19/2011

    " Horrible. Only made it half way through the book until I couldn't stand it any more. I used to like this author, but he's turned so political it's absurd. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JC | 9/15/2011

    " Not as good as the last Rapp novel, but still a pretty good one. Rapp and company are after a group of terrorists following a bombing. I enjoyed reading about the terrorists and how they disagreed at times. Rapp seems to be getting a little old at times in this novel... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 8/26/2011

    " 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... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly Kurtz | 8/22/2011

    " Great book. A very fast read and one that I just couldn't put down. I wish we had some real life Mitch Rapps in our CIA, our country would be the better for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 7/19/2011

    " It was ok, not great.

    And what is it that Flynn has with men's height?? Every character was described by their height. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 4/28/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabrielle | 4/15/2011

    " Classic CIA suspense book, easy to read and like. "

    " I love Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series. This was, as usual, a book that I could not put down once I started it. Great, quick read. Brings up a lot questions about to what lengths a country should go to protect its citizens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 4/7/2011

    " I liked the book because it kept me wanting to know how it would end! BUT I've SURE been running into a LOT of books with to many swear words! I don't like that! Prefer to not have any but certainly not this much! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 4/7/2011

    " Oh, Mitch, how I've missed you. This one was soooooo good. I loved his scene in the Judiciary Commitee.
    Priceless! "

    " Mitch Rapp and his trusted team are frustrated who latest explosions in Washington D.C. Rapp needs figure out how the caughter three of the al Qaeda terrorists who are still at large. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregory | 3/8/2011

    " Give the book a read. It's a nice way to kill time between whatever needs to be done. Just note that this is the latest book in the Mitch Rapp series. I didn't know that it was, and unfortunately, I've started this series from the last book moving to the first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maurean | 3/3/2011

    " Another good Mitch Rapp installment..this one outs Nash publicly, as they track the terrorists who blew up the counter-terrorist building (good story, but not my favorite. Looking forward to American Assassin, where we will hear the beginning of Mitch's tale...) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 3/2/2011

    " I lost count of the Mitch Rapp stories. They are beginning to run together, and the quality is not what it was in the beginning. I'll probably quit the series here (unless I am stranded in an airport and desperate for reading material.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ivan | 2/27/2011

    " Gotta love Mitch Rapp...up to his usual in this one. How many of these will Flynn write? We're up to eleven now.
    "
