#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin—now a major motion picture
An 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).
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.

Such an amazing story!
I’ve been a fan of Flynn and the Mitch Rapp series for a couple years, and this book goes up as being in my top three. Compared to some of the other Mitch Rapp books, this one really followed the story with every chapter and stuck along with the idea of the end of one chapter lead to the realization of clues and solving of problems in the next. There was never a dull moment in this book, and the ending really showed the emotional journey that Nash went through. If this was a movie, I’d give it a standing ovation.
I've read all the Vince Flynn books in order (up until Pursuit of Honor) and this one felt a little, "off". Considering everything the author drags you through in the course of this story, I was hoping for a more substantial, satisfying ending. It felt like he was writing the book, his deadline came up and he just quickly wrote an ending so he could hand it in.
Would I recommend the book? Well, if you are reading the series, as I am, and will continue to do, I'd say read it. It's an emotional roller coaster as are the other books. Realistically, every book can't be, "the best book".
It may just be my personal preference for a longer resolution that has slanted my review. The book still has everything you'd expect from a Mitch Rapp thriller.
Well written. Hard to put down. A few too many side stories. Bad guys not as smart as some
