This was pretty boring for the first half of the book. There was a ton of plodding setup, including characters who ended up really having nothing to do with main plot. Things got rolling at about 53%, and then it felt more like the Mitch Rapp books I'm used to.

In advertent rereading of the book - remarkably little memory from the first reading.
My enjoyment of the Mitch Rapp character and series declines with each book.
Although I dislike liberal politics/politicians becoming involved in counterterrorism activities that they have no real understanding of, it is pretty clear that Rapp is a thug (albeit our thug) with poor anger and behavioral control. ( )

I no

I read for entertainment. entertained I was, but this became a little more political than I like. However I do enjoy it when blind leftist are forced to see the errors of their ways ! good story.... ( )

This was another Mitch Rapp adventure. And another good one. Cheesy in some parts but I loved it anyway. Gimme more of Mitch and the gang any day. ( )

I'm very torn with this book. I really enjoyed it, the plot felt a little flat once all was said and done.

It was a great book in personal context because I had gone through several stinkers (didn't finish) and this book was easy to get through. Still, I enjoyed past VF books much more. ( )

After reading a good story like this one, I can't help but suggest that you should join N0velStar’s writing competition, you might be their next big star.
