Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon Vince Flynn delivers a white-knuckled rollercoaster ride of a novel featuring “the best hero the thriller genre has to offer” (The Real Book Spy) as Mitch Rapp wages a war against a new enemy with the help of a fellow soldier as dedicated—and as lethal—as they come.

Counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his colleague Mike Nash may have finally met their match. The CIA has intercepted two terrorist cells, but a third—led by a dangerous mastermind determined to become al-Qaeda’s new leader—is believed to be on the loose. With such a terrifyingly deadly enemy out there, Rapp needs the best of the best by his side and he believes he has that with Nash.

Together, they have made careers out of meeting violence with extreme violence and have never wavered in the top-secret fight against the war on terrorism. Both have been forced to lie to virtually every single person they care about, and both have soldiered on with the knowledge that their lethal tactics have saved thousands of lives. But certain leaders on Capitol Hill are pushing to have men like Rapp and Nash put on a short leash. And then one spring afternoon in Washington, DC, everything changes.

With nonstop action and ripped-from-the-headlines writing, Extreme Measures is the political thriller of our time and proves once again that, “in the world of black-ops thrillers, Mitch Rapp continues to be among the best of the best” (Booklist, starred review).

4 Star Review

I have always loved Vince Flynn's book but Extreme Measures was somewhat disappointing. Mitch Rapp tortures a few bad guys and that was nice to see that Rapp was back and up to his useual tricks to do whatever it takes to protect America, but he gets dragged into a hearing because the positions had assured the two terrorist that Rapp tortured the snot out of that they would be well cared for, treated with respected not harmed and that the US would abide by the Geneva Convention.
Of course the positions fail to acknowledge that terrorists never signed the Geneva convention and do not bother to uphold it when they have their own POWs.
So Rapp is stuck in a hearing with these positions meanwhile a terrorist cell makes its way to Washington DC to launch attacks on a unimaginable scale.
The hearing that Rapp is caught up in goes on for several CDs and it's only in the last 3 CDs that the action started to pick up and the led started to fly.
The story-line with Mike Nash wasn't that exciting and Vince just threw in a little sub plot dealing with Nash's family life that was not entertaining and irrelivent to the main story plot I'd have rather heard more about Rapp.
The plot picks up the pace in the 9th CD and the led started to fly and I was very entertained but then the book ended with 3 terriorist still at large and I'll have to wait until next years book to be able to finish the story kind of dissapointing the way Flynn just ended the story because I really want to see these 3 guys meet their demise coourtsay of Mitch Rapp.
Vince Flynn is a great author and writes great action packed thrillers I would highly recommend his books to fans of the TV show 24.
I still liked the book and wouldn't object to re reading it but Vince has some better more action packed thrillers out there.

Subcommittees?

Flynn kind of hobbles Mitch Rapp this time around, I'm accustomed to Rapp spanning the globe catching the kunckle heads. This time around he spends most of his time testifying in front of subcommittees
for torturing prisoners, a waste of his talent. He finally gets back into it at the end.

Extreme Measures

Vince Fylnn hits another home run and George Guidall is once more wonderfull as the voice of the series. The introduction of new characters leaves one wondering if Rapp will meet his end in this thriller, and Fylnn set us up nicely for the next adventure!!
