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" (The Salt Lake Tribune) for our country's safety, for the sake of freedom, for the pursuit of honor.

    Vince Flynn is a GOP loving, Glenn Beck ball licking, Fox News hounding, ULTRA-Conservative asshole of the highest degree & yet, I love his thrillers. Flynn's character, CIA counter-terrorist agent, Mitch Rapp, makes Jack Bauer look like a girl scout. He makes Brad Thor's counter-terrorist agent, Scot Harvath, look like a cub scout. Rapp's method is brute force--politics & red tape be damned!--kill 'em all because anything un-American deserves to be taking a dirt nap. It's so laughable i Vince Flynn is a GOP loving, Glenn Beck ball licking, Fox News hounding, ULTRA-Conservative asshole of the highest degree & yet, I love his thrillers. Flynn's character, CIA counter-terrorist agent, Mitch Rapp, makes Jack Bauer look like a girl scout. He makes Brad Thor's counter-terrorist agent, Scot Harvath, look like a cub scout. Rapp's method is brute force--politics & red tape be damned!--kill 'em all because anything un-American deserves to be taking a dirt nap. It's so laughable it makes you want to cry. Why? Because it's obvious Flynn believes in his character--he believes the right-wing nutcase prose he writes as fiction. & it's scary. Flynn preaches through his character, Mitch Rapp, that torture works & abortion is murder all in the same paragraph of dialogue. He preaches that the ULTRA-conservative faction of the U.S.A. is the answer to saving the country from itself. He believes it is the liberals who are allowing the terrorists to win--no--they WANT the terrorists to win! PURSUIT OF HONOR starts with Rapp trying to decide if he should turn in a CIA dept. mgr. for being a traitor (something he's judged entirely on his own), saving the taxpayers' money by putting a bullet in the man's head without due process or blackmailing him into into being his snitch for the rest of his life. All this after killing a butt-load of terrorists from the previous novel in the Rapp series (book #11)--he's a busy man. But now he has bigger fish to fry because 3 of the wanted terrorists from the previous novel escaped & are at large in the the heart of america & Mitch Rapp can't allow this to continue--they must DIE! Bullets fly, innocent NRA loving Americans are murdered (& must be avenged!), CIA operatives become turncoats, torture gains important intelligence, democratic senators become villains who are no match for Rapp's ideology & Muslim terrorists get sent to Allah via Mitch Rapp's gun! Does our hero ever get wounded? Hell no. Awesome. You don't have to read the novel before this one & if you like counter terrorism/espionage/CIA thrillers, then you should give him a try. As I've said (especially about Brad Thor's thrillers), if the card carrying GOP nut jobs are good at anything, they write good thrillers & pile the action on. Lots of good action & if you're a liberal, good for laughs. I intend to read more of Flynn's novels because they are great fun.

    Another great dose of testosterone ;-) And I wanted to clap many times at the tongue lashing Mitch Rapp gave to a clueless member of congress (fictional, but pretty obvious who she is meant to correspond with in real life).

    A genre between historical fiction and factual current events. i.e. I recognize the arrogant liberal Senator from SF as the former US Senator Barbara Boxer D-Ca. I miss you Vince Flynn. You gave us a way to look at this war without putting our heads in the sand.

    Another fantastic Vince Flynn book! This is the 10th book in the Mitch Rapp series. In this one, Rapp is focused on finding the terrorists that planned and executed the attacks from book 9. At the same time, has has to deal with a few lose strings on the home front as well.

One of the things that I love about Vince Flynn is how he will jump from Mitch's perspective to the perspective of the terrorists. It's interesting to see how he believes their minds work! There wasn't as much action in this book as most of the previous ones. But there was a great view of the psychology of living the type of life that Mitch does. In the last books, Mike Nash was shown just as much as Mitch. And while I loved seeing how someone doing the job that they do handles going home to a wife and kids, I was worried that the series was going to vear too much towards Nash. He's a great character, but nobody can compare to Rapp for me! Luckily, after this book, I don't think that's going to be the case any more. While we definetly saw Nash in this book, he wasn't really the main focus this time. I did find myself laughing several times (especially towards the end) as Rapp did things to other people that he personally would never tolerate! He is a bit of a hypocrite at times. Without giving anything away, I'll just say that towards the end of the book one of the characters was put into a situation that was very similar to a situation that Rapp was in during an earlier book. When Mitch was in that situation, he flat out refused to step back and let anyone call the shots but him. This time, he refused to let the other character take the lead, and again flat out refused to let anyone else call the shots! I guess that attitude is probably one of the things that I love about Rapp! Great book! As a side note, the audio book was fantastic. This series is one of my favorites to listen to!

    The Real Book Spy

    Wow. Vince Flynn really brings it in this high octane thriller! Pursuit of Honor is a direct sequel to Flynn's last book, Extreme Measures, which in my opinion didn't live up to the standard he set for himself with his previous offerings. If Extreme Measures was his low point, Vince Flynn proves he's back on top with Pursuit of Honor. My biggest grip with Extreme Measures is that Flynn introduced a new character, Mike Nash, who seemed to overshadow Mitch Rapp. Rapp, Flynn's longtime main protago Wow. Vince Flynn really brings it in this high octane thriller! Pursuit of Honor is a direct sequel to Flynn's last book, Extreme Measures, which in my opinion didn't live up to the standard he set for himself with his previous offerings. If Extreme Measures was his low point, Vince Flynn proves he's back on top with Pursuit of Honor. My biggest grip with Extreme Measures is that Flynn introduced a new character, Mike Nash, who seemed to overshadow Mitch Rapp. Rapp, Flynn's longtime main protagonist and center of all his previous novels (except one, Term Limits), seemed to get less screen time to the newer Nash. With all do respect to Mr. Nash, people read Vince Flynn's books to follow CIA terrorist-hunter Mitch Rapp! Where Extreme Measures didn't follow Mitch Rapp as much as his readers had grown used to, Flynn came back by continuing the story and letting Rapp be the main star this time around. In fact, as if just to prove that Rapp is still "the man" compared to Nash, Flynn treats readers to a moment were Rapp claims his dominance with one well placed palm strike. You'll love it, and find yourself smiling and you cheer Rapp on every step of the way! The story follows Rapp as he hunts down the terrorists responsible for a series of bombs that went off in Washington D.C. that killed hundreds of innocent people, including a few dozen members of congress. I'm not going to ruin anything, or give away the fabulous ending, so please just do yourself a favor and pick this book up to read on your own. Just in case there was any doubt to his greatness Vince Flynn turned in Pursuit of Honor, and in doing so, reclaimed his spot as the best in the business as writing thrillers for this genre.

    Just finished my first thriller and you know what? I didn't hate it. In fact, I kinda liked it. I think I could read a couple more Jack Bauer Mitch Rapp books.

    I like Vince Flynn and this is a good read. It starts out with an American traitor who's position and actions make him an extreme liability. So, Mitch (Rapp) needs to take, certain action. Interesting spring board from which to start a story. Flynn has a record for telling good, well constructed, fast moving (even breakneck speed) novels. If you've followed Mitch Rapp's "career" (and the book that follows this one is actually a "prequel" giving us Mitch's start in the CIA)you know this.

If you've followed Mitch Rapp's "career" (and the book that follows this one is actually a "prequel" giving us Mitch's start in the CIA)you know this. This is still fast moving and it's still absorbing. I give it 4 stars and as I have already said, I like it. However I must say that the final climax in this book is very, very, predictable. (Using "very, very" always makes me think of the movie "Undercover Blues". The "bad guys" have guns on Dennis Quaid and Kathleen Turner and say, "I want you to get up from the table very, very slowly" to which Quaid reply's, "Very, very?" Not just "very?") Anyway...the final plot point (if you will) is so obvious that I don't see how everyone in the book didn't see it coming, CIA, FBI, Homeland Security and the rest of the government alphabet soup all miss it, but I doubt you will. Like me you'll be shaking your head saying, why don't they see what's coming? Oh well, that aside it's still a good read and I can recommend it. If you're a Flynn fan, a spy novel fan or and action novel fan I think it'll pass inspection, with the one "minor" flaw.

    Vince Flynn is the Master what more can I say at this point! He knows how to deliver a story with shear force and amazing accuracy that hits like a bullseye right to the heart. He captures readers in his insight, in his power, in his control over every situation without fear or hesitation to end terrorism for the sake of his country. This was the 11th Mitch Rapp Novel completed in awe of Vince Flynn and his writing abilities. I don't know how any reviewer can truly offer any less than 5 star glowing Vince Flynn is the Master what more can I say at this point!

In Pursuit of Honor we have some heavy hitters in the arena with Karim and Hakim joining forces all be it they may just self destruct on their own while they go after the nations National Counter Terrorism facility on the war against terror. If they succeed the crippling waves will wipe out America's ability to attack Al Quaeda. Adams exposes the CIA using a tell all to showcase its illegal programs. No worries as Mitch Rapp doesn't have failure in his vocabulary. Bad Ass is his middle name. Ahmed and Karim are terrorists on their own mission in burning down houses leaving nothing but death and destruction behind. Rapp knows it will take everything he has in his arsenal to get the mission completed especially in locating Peter Siddov because Ahmed is a trained sniper who is out for blood. Mitch takes no prisoners and Karim learns that lesson the hard way. Mitch is the ultimate enforcer of liberty and freedom. Vince Flynn has done it again... Amazing work all around!

    It's been years since I have read a Vince Flynn novel. I decided to try it out again. And, I do not like Mitch Rapp anymore. His solution to every conflict, every disagreement, is to simply threaten to kill the person or actually kill him. Including his best friend, Mike Nash and the Inspector General of the CIA, to name just a few. Rapp is a loose cannon that is portrayed as some glorified American hero. He's not. He's a cold-blooded killer that should be locked up in the brig. Now, I digress. It's been years since I have read a Vince Flynn novel. I decided to try it out again.

Flynn's novels are full of right-wing, anti-liberal, anti-muslim, and anti-establishment rhetoric. I simply cannot stomach the rhetoric anymore. So, I say a final goodbye to Flynn and Rapp. It was enjoyable at a time when I was like you, but thank goodness, I'm not anymore. Adios.

    This would be one of Flynn's best, except... I first began this one in the mistaken belief that it preceded "Extreme Measures", and I was rather impressed at the leap in Flynn's jump in narrative maturity. Coming to it cold, you feel like you dropped right in the middle of a complicated story, and have to piece some things together as you go along, which was fun. Then I looked again at the copyright date, set this one aside, and read the preceding book first before continuing. Still, while this boo This would be one of Flynn's best, except...

Coming to it cold, you feel like you dropped right in the middle of a complicated story, and have to piece some things together as you go along, which was fun. Then I looked again at the copyright date, set this one aside, and read the preceding book first before continuing. Still, while this book follows on about a week after the climax of "Extreme Measures", and continues the story threads that remained open, it DOES add some new elements that you have to work a little to figure out how they affected the previous book. (And it's not ret-conning, it was clearly intended in both books.) So while it's not so much of a "here you are in the middle of events, work it out for yourself" scenario as I first thought, it remained satisfying. Except. Flynn makes use of one scene to make an anti-abortion statement. To be fair, he clearly does not think that is what he is doing. Flynn's hero, Mitch Rapp, is confronted by a California senator over the morality of torture, and calls her out for hypocrisy since she supports late-term abortion. Since Rapp is (obviously) pro-torture, and since he explicitly has no opinion on abortion, he is "just pointing out the hypocrisy" of the senator. And, for Rapp the character, I can accept that. But author Flynn clearly has an agenda. He sets up the confrontation to ensure that the reader is in great anticipation. He fails to treat the pro-choice side with any seriousness at all. The senator makes no attempt to explain that her position proceeds from the right of a woman to her own body (or if she does, it's so weak as to come off as forgettable sophistry). As far as Flynn is concerned, she is for killing innocent babies, and there can be no other way of looking at it. I have no problem reading books from authors who hold opinions contrary to my own (as this opinion clearly is), but it leaves a bad taste when said author justifies his side with the thinnest of straw men. It's only one scene (and a very brief moment earlier in the story). It doesn't ruin the book. But it does bring it down a notch, because it's such a false note. And an unnecessary one. If he had just dealt with the conflict of different ideas (and the premises from which they proceed) honestly, it might have even elevated the book quite a bit. On the positive side, Flynn's portrayal of the destructiveness of narcissism is excellent. There are (at least) two full-blown narcissists in the story, and their characterizations are almost completely different. The effects of their psychology, and the actions they take, are widely divergent, but completely believable and, in one case, terrifying. Overall, a pretty good entry in the Mitch Rapp series, which would have been one of the best if not for the author cheating in advocating one of his political opinions.

I enjoyed this book, surprisingly, because of the terrorists. The interaction between Hakim and Karim was funny and it was a refreshing change to see a different side to the bad guys. Rapp, as usual, sees things black and white when he has to. I like that. Kyle Mills also mentioned that "My books tend to be a bit morally ambiguous whereas Vince’s have a strong sense of good and evil.". I would not want Mills to change the Mitch Rapp that Flynn created and whom I like just as he is. So it was a relief when I read Mills say, "The prelude I wrote last week is a perfect example. When I reread it, I realized it was a solid Kyle Mills scene but not such a great Vince Flynn scene. So I went back and reworked it." (Kyle Answers Questions). I am curious as to what happens to Nash after this - is he really going to be happy staying away from the action? I wasn't going to buy The Last Man (Rapp#13) but Kyle Mills said it sets up the story for The Survivor so between wanting to know how Nash is doing and already having bought The Survivor, I'll start on The Last Man today. I was happy about Senator Lonsdale in the previous book and glad to see her being good on her word. It tickled me to read that the exchange between Rapp and Senator Ogden was based on a real life incident (see Kelly's review).

With Mitch Rapp back in the action kicking ass for the US, and back fighting the War on Terrorism, doing what he does best, an American James Bond!! Pursuit of Honor takes place right after the events that took place in the end of Extreme Measures, when a small band of Muslim Terrorists blew up a Restaurant in Washington DC, killing many Congress Members and Staffers, afterwards attacking the National Counter Terrorist Center, killing many more until Rapp and Mike Nash intervene, killing the majority of the attackers, but the leader Karim, knows as the Lion of al Qaeda, and 2 more of his followers, remain at large. With the Nation left in disarray, the President has given Rapp and Nash the green light to bring Karim to justice dead or alive. Rapp is on the trail of a corrupt official of the CIA who has given out information that some would consider to aid the enemy. While at the same time, Karim and his 2 followers, Hakim and Ahmed, are on the run from the authorities following the attack, and they take up residency at multiple locations in rural Iowa, while Hakim considered to be the leader of the operation, Karim has a different agenda, and turns out to be a psychotic, merciless killer, not caring who he hurts or kills to obtain his objective. We are also once again introduced to Stan Hurley, who for those of you who haven't yet read American Assassin, is the man who trained Rapp, and made him into a killing machine. Much more entertaining than the predecessor, and it was nice to have Rapp back in the action! Entertaining right up to the end!

In this book, Book 12 of the Mitch Rapp series, the bad guys are a group of middle eastern terrorists who have attacked the National Counter-terrorism Center in Washington D.C., killing 185 people. The book follows the surviving terrorists and their plans for escape, leaving devastation in their wake, Mitch Rapp and his friend Mike Nash and their attempts to find them and bring them to justice, and the U.S. Congress and top people at the FBI who are trying to reign Rapp in and bring him to justice for taking the law into his own hands. At the end of this book, I was glad that all had turned out the way it did, but felt guilty for cheering Rapp on. I would love to know what author Vince Flynn feels about this whole thing, but, sadly, he is dead.

    #12. There are only 2 more books in his series, that Vince Flynn actually wrote. This book picks up after a Counterterrorism Center is blown up, killing 185 people. Mike Nash, struggles to justify the terrorist's interrogations and Mitch Rapp comes up with the perfect solution. In the meantime, the chase is on for Hakim, Karim (Lion of al Qaeda) and Ahmed to find them before they do more damage. As with all the books, very enjoyable to read all the way until the end.

On the other hand, Flynn fills his novels with right wing diatribes, allows the torture of not only, terrorists but anyone -- be they American civilians or officers of the government who are dirty and uses anyone who gets in his way. Instead of arresting people and turning them over to the rightful authorities, Rapp and his team, kidnap, and decide who to kill. Rapp does not even talk to his boss Kennedy, who is merely a paper tiger at this point. In this novel, Rapp and his guys start out by kidnapping and torturing the Chief Inspector of the CIA, his crime, he was using dirty methods to track the misdeeds and violations of the law that Rapp was using in America, and was thinking of writing a tell all book about Rapps deeds and other secret missions. Lock him up send him to jail is not good enough for Rapp. Better, throw him into isolation threaten to kill him etc. Later Rapp kidnaps and tortures an ex CIA agent who was bugging for the Chief Inspector the offices of psychologists treating wives of CIA agents. Again Rapp shoots the guy to get him to talk. In a third scene, a Senator who believes that Rapps methods are repugnant dresses him down in a Senate hearing and Rapp responds by critiquing her support for abortion rights by constantly talking about the worst episodes of late term abortion propaganda using all of the buzzwords from the anti abortion playbook. It almost seems at some point that the whole purpose of the novel is too take pot shots -- that torture works, that American politicians who stand in the way of real men who do America's dirty work are the enemy. Of course, if you can get past these political POV, the rest of the book about how Rapp tracks down the terrorists. led by Karim, a sick guy who constantly kills innocent Americans for no reason at all hiding in the USA is a fast paced exciting adventure. But its not as good as others in the series because there are less and less action scenes, which is why I read Flynn, to begin with and more and more political messages about the effectiveness of torture, and the ends justify the means. I think if Flynn jettisoned that the book would be 150 pages shorter, but you have to take the good and the bad if you read his books.

    Prior to Pursuit of Honor, I read another Vince Flynn book a couple of years ago and was looking forward to reading this one. Alas, I was very disappointed. Flynn is an excellent writer, but I don't enjoy being hit over the head with his political views. I'll not say much about the plot. Washington D.C. has been hit by a terror attack, many dead, hundreds injured. And so of course, supreme counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp must come to the rescue.

Washington D.C. has been hit by a terror attack, many dead, hundreds injured. And so of course, supreme counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp must come to the rescue. The three al Qaeda terrorists who executed the attack have escaped. Strangely, I found one of them to be the most interesting character in the book. Yes, he's a Muslim. Yes, he did a terrible thing. But he comes to feel remorse. And disgust at the continued killing of his colleague during their attempt to escape. I had very little sympathy for Mitch Rapp. So egotistical. So certain he's right. So patronizing to his friend and colleague, who dares to doubt his methods. As I said before, Flynn is a fine writer and creates a compelling plot that comes to a logical, though rather strange conclusion. But I had to skim over the parts when Mitch Rapp is ranting about ... those terrible baby killer abortionists. Please. Give me a break. In the words of the late great filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille: If you want to send a message, use Western Union.

    Vince Flynn does not disappoint. This author has a way of making even congressional hearings seem life threatening. This book was a bit different from other Mitch Rapp adventures in that we see a lot of time spent dealing with people other than terrorists. I did find myself questioning Mitch's actions more this time. Typically I have supported how he deals with situations, but this time I think some things were borderline. Maybe it is because he kidnaps a couple US citizens on US soil. Or maybe i Vince Flynn does not disappoint. This author has a way of making even congressional hearings seem life threatening.

Maybe it is because he kidnaps a couple US citizens on US soil. Or maybe it is his attitude about government secrets vs the public's right to know. I have to remember that even though Mitch doesn't like to admit it, he is a government tool. His attitudes are going to reflect that. We happen to agree that there are people in the government that shouldn't be there and do more harm than good. But I think we may disagree on how to handle. Vince Flynn seems to have forgotten Term Limits and what Scott Coleman and his team did. But I don't read this for political commentary or education. This series is fabulous butt-kicking, terrorist-killing fun.

    #10 in the Mitch Rapp series. Goodreads now lists this as #12, but that counts prequels #11 American Assassin (2010) and #12 Kill Shot (2011) as #s 1 & 2 respectively. #10 - Mitch Rapp follows up on the terrorist team that attacked Washington, D.C. in "Extreme Measures". A secondary theme is investigating US officials selling secret information. Senator Lonsdale has become a CIA ally. Mike Nash questions some of Rapp's tactics; he is removed from tactical operations by promoting him to be Ra #10 in the Mitch Rapp series.

    Pursuit of Honor picks up six days after the conclusion of Extreme Measures. Mitch Rapp and his buddy Mike Nash are tasked with running down leads regarding a terrorist attack which took place in the previous novel. Along the way some relationships get bruised, some souls are searched and a handful of very bad (and some very good) people get some bullet holes in them. Mitch Rapp is Mitch Rapp and that seems to keep working out well for this series. I gotta say, I liked Pursuit of Honor but I felt Pursuit of Honor picks up six days after the conclusion of Extreme Measures.

Mitch Rapp is Mitch Rapp and that seems to keep working out well for this series. I gotta say, I liked Pursuit of Honor but I felt it was a bit disjointed at times. The plot kicks off with a very dark opening that we quickly transition out of and never really get back to in any kind of satisfying way. I got the sense those chapters were written for the express purpose of positioning certain character's attitudes in a way that would allow for the type of story to be told that Flynn wanted to tell. The bulk of the novel was an easy going back and forth with chapters alternating between two sets of characters: the good guys and the bad guys. Interestingly, both sets of characters were coming to grips with similar issues between their members. I found it to be an interesting way to convey the difficulties people can have with living lives devoted to violence - no matter which side of the violence you might be on. The final tenth of the book was straight-up Vince Flynn chaos - which is what makes these things so much fun to read. I really enjoyed what Flynn was attempting to do with his characters throughout the meat of the novel. It was interesting to see how the relationships began to wear and ultimately break down and how that caused the characters to develop and change over the course of the story. Where I felt this was at its weakest was at the end. After the action, I felt things calmed down a bit too neatly and it just didn't have that ring of authenticity I'd hoped to find. Oh well. It was still a great idea and I'm delighted Flynn took the chance with his characters instead of running them all through the same-old/same-old with hardly any development opportunities. And despite my complaints, I thought he pulled it off pretty well for the most part. Technically, I didn't feel Pursuit of Honor was as well edited as Flynn's previous outings. I came across several out of place words where it was obvious a sentence's structure had been modified but the changed wording didn't get put back together correctly. That is always jarring for me as a reader and pulls me right out of the flow and distracts me from the drama. A thorough editor's read through should have caught almost all of these errors, I'm sure. Not exactly sure what happened here - I haven't noticed it like this in the previous books. Having said all of that, Pursuit of Honor was a fun read. Despite the disjointed plot, the deus ex machina style ending and the hap-hazard editing in places, I enjoyed my time in this story. It was a lot of fun in places and the pacing, while not breakneck, was satisfying enough to keep me coming back anxiously after every break. I'll go for three stars on this one.

    I have read most of the books in this sensational Mitch Rapp series. I wouldn’t continue if I ran into clunkers like this one. The bad guys were one-dimensional. The CIA agent who is put on a pedestal has such a predictable demise a fifth grader could tell you what’s going to happen. And Mitch Rapp, everyone’s favorite assassin, goes through he motions. I plodded through this books and will give Vince Flynn a break for now.

    Disappointing entry in Mitch Rapp series. Continuation of story that began in Extreme Measures with Mitch and Mike Nash hunting down the third cell, standing up to a confessional committee and trying to get along. Short on action and Rapp has to share time with two other plot threads. Highlight of the book is Rapp taking on a group of Russian bodyguards at a club. Hopefully, next installment will be better.

    I really enjoy Vince Flynn novels. Mitch Rapp is a no nonsense CIA operative. He believes, like I do, that when you catch a known terrorist they should have no "rights". Rights are for American citizens only, or should be. Again a good ending. Book is very realistic. The terrorist have succeeded in their plot to kill Americans and the hunt is on. I enjoy learning more about how we get information. Now onto "The Last Man".

    All I can say is... I wish I had Mitch Rapp as a friend. I really enjoy the more focus on not work stuff and showing that he still is a normal guy besides hunting and killing terrorists for a living. Always a good read from this series.

    In Pursuit of a Great Read Another outstanding thriller. I think this was Flynn's final novel and it was one of his best. The book had a believable plot and great action. Thanks Vince for the many hours of enjoyment reading your books.
