Again, Mitch saves the USA from some really bad stuff--nukes and terrorists. A short, fast paced book, ones interest was not lost on wasteful details. The author spends some time bashing the liberal, equal rights under the law, viewpoint. So, the book is a bit preachy. Reference is made to Mitch's wife, but we never meet her. And, again, the line between POTUS and tactical activity is so short that multiple layers of bureaucracy are moot. That said, the book was exciting and a page turner. Where's Rapp #6 ? ( )

What can one say more about Flynn and his creation Mitch Rapp. Definitely not the pleasantest of people, but boy does he get the job done for the American people. Rapp wants to be an unsung hero, but does not get his way, and his world-wide reputation goes before him so that criminals and terrorists alike quail at the sight of him. In this book a dying terrorist tries to realise his greatest wish to strike at the very heart of the Satan of the West as he views the USA. The plotline is as good as usual with Flynn, the protagonists believable, and the lengths to which they will go to achieve their ends, whilst not always palatable, show the depths of their beliefs. Flynn has left us a legacy in Rapp, and I look forward to reading the next in the series.
4.5 stars – I was engrossed.

Rapp goes to Pakistan and take 5 hostages in a raid and in the process discovers a plot to kill the president and blow up DC with a nuke it. The wahhabi sect of islam people get thwarted and the president doesn't want to hear anything Rapp says. the AG takes custody of the terrorists who are converted american citizens and refuses to let them be interrogated so the almost retiring FBI director and Rapp take one of the prisoners to a CIA secrect facility and without physical abuse interogate the guy by tossing him into a pool the fear of drowning make the bad guy sing and low and behold There is a second nuke that was planned for DC the first nuke was meant for Newyork! He barely saves DC from destruction and helos the nuke to Mt Weather a secured bunker from the 1950's and sends the nuke all the way to the botton of elevator shaft to get out of the mountain in timefor the double doors to close and the bunker blows causing the richter scalesto goe off around the world the french think were testing nukes the germans think that we had a mishap and the usa reporters thinks that a terrorist blew up a secret government place. fortunately the bomb was contained and Mt Weather was no more. Rapp threatens to quit unless the president keeps his name out of it, and fires or makes people resign. starting with valerie jones, and asst dir AG Stealey who locked up the terrorists to try them in court instead of letting the CIA interrogate them... Rapp ends up getting to WISCONSIN to see his wife and inlaws before the end of Memorial day. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743453980, Mass Market Paperback)

Fighting terrorism on foreign ground, CIA superagent Mitch Rapp does whatever it takes to protect American freedom.


CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States, just as the nation's capital prepares for a grand Memorial Day tribute to the veterans of World War II. Racing to Afghanistan, Mitch Rapp leads a commando raid on an al Queda stronghold in a remote border village -- and defuses plans for a nuclear strike on Washington. The crisis averted, the special ops work is done. But Rapp knows, in the face of a new kind of enemy, nothing is as it seems -- and it's up to him alone to avert a disaster of unimaginable proportions.
