An excellent book, no hidden surprises, but a wonderful plot line. Flynn weaves his tale and draws the reader in. Rapp is as tough as Jack Bauer "24", with a little more humanity thrown in.

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.

Vengence - the ultimate motive. And Vince Flynn harnesses that emotion into the context of today's undercover world where the unrewarded guard the unknowing and the ungrateful from the gravest of dangers. I believe that Flynn, in this book, takes us very close to what is really going on in the world today. A world we choose to ignore because if these few heroes fail, it will be a world that ceases to exist as we know it.

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...

My intro to Mitch Rapp and the CIA Assassin, who defends this country from the Muslim extremists who threaten it on a daily basis. A believable tragic hero, with both strenghts and flaws. A must read. Vince Flynn actually interviewed political figures, former CIA agents, and did extensive research to make this believeable as possible, without compromising our national security of course :).

On the front lines of the global war on terror, CIA superagent Mitch Rapp races to save one more life: his own. An eye for an eye: that's what the powerful father of a dead terrorist demands in retribution - and with his hate-filled plea, Mitch Rapp becomes the target of an explosive international conspiracy. The fearless operative has both killed with impunitya nd tortured to avert disaster, all in a battle to preserve freedom. But even among America's allies, some believe the time has come to bring Rapp down. Now the hunter is the hunted, and Rapp must rely on his razor-sharp instincts for survival-and justice- as he unleashes his fury on those who have betrayed him.

Vince Flynn writes an excellent CIA / spy / assassin story and this one is very similar to his other work with a significant difference right at the end. He hints and leads you from mid-story to that ending. The main character is a very nasty guy named Mitch Rapp who is an over-the-top, butt kicking, one man disaster, assassin. This is one of those stand up and cheer stories that also moves briskly along. In the end, Mitch Rapp is a romantic and I will leave that discovery for you to find.

I found the book to be a bit slower to get into than most Vince Flynn books. I love the no-nonsense character, Mitch Rapp, but this book shows a side of him that is somewhat unattractive.

Incredible. I was on the edge of my seat for a long time. I just love the Mitch Rapp serious and I loved seeing him taking no crap from politicians.

Predictable and too much revenge mindedness for me. It falls into a bit of the stereotypical hatred of Arabs because of 911. It was my first book of this series. I do like audio books and I'm glad it was abridged.

Maybe my favorite, though Term Limits was a blast, too. Devastating developments. Loser politicians. And enemies you can almost like. Perfection in a thriller.

Mitch Rapp is the target of a $22 million hit. He meets tradedy along the way which fuels his vengence. A surprising twist at the end. I picked up my first Vince Flynn book out of the hallway when they were cleaning out lockers for the summer at the high school where I worked. I enjoyed it so much I bought 2 more immediately (this was before PBS) and have read all his books since. He keeps you turning the pages!

Great continuation of the Mitch Rapp series. One of the best so far. Mitch suffers a personal tragedy but the ending is absolutely one to keep you turning page after page till it is over.

Flynn continues to ratchet up the stakes for CIA assassin Mitch Rapp, who battles a Saudi billionaire bent on revenge(who puts out a $20 million contract), an exEast German Stasi spy and a deadly husband-and-wife team of assassins. Besides terrorists and assassins, Mitch has to battle the new national director of intelligence, a craven, hypocritical, inside-the-Beltway operator. When Mitch whacks this twerp on the side of the head with a heavy file during a high-level meeting, readers will stand up and cheer. Great book!
