Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin—now a major motion picture

America’s most powerful leader becomes its prime target, a “nightmarish” (Booklist) scenario made all-too-real in this Mitch Rapp thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn.

The stately calm of a Washington morning is shattered when a group of terrorists descends, killing dozens and taking nearly one hundred hostages as they massacre their way into the White House. The Secret Service evacuates the president to an underground bunker—and while officials argue over how to negotiate with the enemy, Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, moves stealthily among the hidden corridors and secret passageways of the executive mansion, to save the hostages before the terrorists reach the president. But another adversary—someone within Washington’s elite—is determined to see Rapp’s rescue mission fail.

    Started this on a Jet Blue flight out of Fort Myers and couldn't put it down. A bit wordy here and there, but writers do like the sound of their own voice. It goes where you expect and it's a great ride.

    This was probably the best book I've ever read...couldn't put it down. It had all the elements necessary to keep the reader on the edge of his/her seat. Kudos to the author. Now, I need to download another one and let the fun continue.

    I read the newest two Vince Flynn (Mitch Rapp Series) novels and loved them, so I decided to go from the beginning and read all of them. This was my seventh and I must say it is a bit different than the rest. Namely, it starts real slow and that is unusual for Flynn. Basically, you could take the first half of the book and condense it into two chapters. There was so much repetition, I spent most of the time skimming. He included a lot of word for word background from pervious novels and I found that very disappointing. If I wanted to know what happened in previous books, I would have bought them (and I did). Anyway other that a LOT of repeating himself, the story finally took off as I had hoped it would and became a fun read in the second half. I did NOT notice this repetition in any of Flynns other books so don't give up if this was your first one. Overall they are great, fast paced, hard to put down novels. This one is just three stars for a repetitious first half. (I've already bought the next one, so I have high hopes that this was a fluke).
