Publisher's Summary

Mitch Rapp and his protege, Mike Nash, may have met their match. The CIA has detected and intercepted two terrorist cells, but a third is feared to be on the loose. Led by a dangerous mastermind obsessed with becoming the leader of al-Qaeda, this determined and terrifying group is about to descend on America.Rapp needs the best on this assignment, and Nash, who has served his government honorably for 16 years first as an officer in the Marine Corps and then as an operative in an elite counterterrorism team run by Rapp is his choice. Together, they have made careers out of meeting violence with extreme violence and have never wavered in the fight against the jihadists and their culture of death. Both have fought the war on terrorism in secret without accolades or acknowledgment of their personal sacrifices. Both have been forced to lie to virtually every single person they care about, and both have soldiered on with the knowledge that their hard work and lethal tactics have saved thousands of lives.But the political winds have changed in America, and certain leaders on Capitol Hill are pushing to have men like Rapp and Nash put back on a short leash. And then one spring afternoon in Washington, DC, everything changes.Using his insider knowledge of intelligence agencies and the military, Flynn once again delivers an all-too-real portrayal of a war that is that is waged every day by a handful of brave, devoted souls. Smart, fast-paced, and jaw-droppingly realistic, Extreme Measures is the political thriller of our time.

Kickass Thriller - With Politics!

I hate myself for liking this book so much.

Basically, I'm a knee-jerk liberal who hates the real life excesses of our intelligence community. And I was sort of uncomfortable with the actions of the ultra macho secret agents that populate the Flynn-iverse.

But I kept listening every chance I got and pretty soon I was making up not-so-important errands so I could listen in the car.

I've heard a couple of these Vince Flynn stories now and even though I don't think he writes the most three dimensional characters - he's just really good at crafting these plots that just rope you in and never let up.

How come they're not making these things into movies?

Mitch Rapp is the MAN

Okay. I read thrillers to be thrilled. The books don't have to be literature, they have to be entertaining!

Vince Flynn seldom disappoints at all and I have never been disappointed by a Rapp novel. The Audible versions also have voice appropriate readers that seem to have a good time reading the book.

If you like old fashioned action, where the main character still loves his country and is willing to die to defend it or his women, read these books.

If you want a book where the main character spends more time crying than solving the problems before him, you need to move along because this is not that type of book.
