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.

Slips down like a vanilla milkshake
Narration is excellent. The plot trots along at a good pace and it is does exactly what you would expect, maverick CIA, Middle Eastern terrorism, the moral question of torture, sage old boys veterans of politics and war.
My only reservation is the home life oh please stay away from that domestic arguments a wife who is on one hand the legal brain of Socrates and Perry Mason and is a complete emotional bitch. Sorry just making her work and brainy is still a nagging emotionally bankrupt woman.

Language a bit on the strong and over used side, which is a shame, but the story is great
