Helpful Score: 2
Flynn's books are always written in the superlative and this one follows the pattern. His female characters are always the most beautiful, statuesque and smartest. His male characters are the strongest and best looking.
The good guys are the "goodest" and the bad guys are the baddest.
The plot, as usual, is outrageous and you wonder how the author will work his way out.
Why then do I give it 4 stars? Because it's fun. The bad guys are mowed down. They get what they deserve. And they invariably are very bad Muslims. ( He makes sure to say that most Muslims are really nice but these are bad ones.)
His text is very readable and there is lots of action from page to page.
Why not 5 stars? He tends to spend too much time bringing readers up to date on previous book. What James Patterson might spend a few sentences on, Flynn takes several pages. He also spends too much time analyzing his characters. About 5% editing would really improve his books.
Over all: a good read.

From Our Editors
Mitch Rapp's enemies know that this trained assassin and terrorist hunter (Executive Power, Memorial Day) won't go down easily. To prepare for his demise, they must acknowledge the real possibility of failure and thus the necessity for complete deniability. After all, nobody expects that a high-adrenalin warrior like Rapp will just shake off his wounds, count his blessings and move on. One savage Rapp.
This is the second of Vince Flynn's audio book that my husband has listened to. He would recommend this book to any one who enjoys a good political thriller. Mitch Rapp plays a counterterrorism operative in this book...
