Didn't really enjoy the first part of book - plot didn't seem to be moving on fast enough, but absolutely loved the last two-thirds of the book. Read in two sittings, punctuated by sleep! Keen now to read more in the series. Shows you should never give up on a book. ( )

Better than the last Flynn novel. Flynn managed to keep the suspense of the terrorists loose in the States at a high level while mixing in the dynamics of Rapp and Nash's relationship. More Rapp in this novel than the last one, which probably is what made it a better novel, as I still find Rapp a much better character than Nash. ( )

This is a direct sequel to Extreme Measures, and as such it takes a surprisingly long time to get going. There's also a LOT of talking and discussion, even *gasp* introspection as compared to other Flynn works I've read so far. Still, enough action to satisfy thriller fans, some nice twists, and no torture scenes this time-yay! If you lean to the left, you will probably hate the Senate hearings part in this one because it ventures into another controversial issue. Let's just say Limbaugh and Beck like this author for a reason LOL. The ending leaves you wanting more, which I guess is a good thing, but also has a nice sense of closure. I can almost see it being the last in the series, although it's probably not likely at this point. ( )

This Mitch Rapp book picks up where Extreme Measures left off and I would recommend reading that one first. In this book, Mr. Flynn continues to have the debate around CIA tactics (not always being legal, exactly) vs. following the law. Don't be too alarmed--Rapp finds ways to break the rules and get things done so that whole debate thing gets dashed aside. There was a bit more politics in this book but overall, a good quick page-turner. Like the last book, there were a number of groan-inducing scenes (I gotta finish this book so let's throw in a HUGE coincidence to keep things moving) that you expect in most of these thriller books. I miss the earlier works of Mr. Flynn. He appears to be getting into Tom Clancy territory--some great early books and then they just tapered off to mediocrity and indistinguishable from the other thrillers.

It's not easy keeping these stories sleek while preventing them from becoming parodies of themselves, and in that regard, "Pursuit of Honor" may be the best Rapp novel yet. Flynn does his job in making one want more.

Mitch Rapp comes up against a new and deadly enemy when he is unofficially ordered to find three terrorists by any means necessary. They've attacked Washington D.C., killing 185 and wounding hundreds. So far, however, his investigation has been painfully complicated and has yet to yield a single solid lead--and the last thing Rapp expected was to be in New York City to decide the fate of a man that could be his cover.… (more)
