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

An exhilarating political thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn, praised as “the best pure adrenaline-charged action writer out there today” (The Providence Journal).

When Washington, DC’s National Counterterrorism Center is struck by a series of devastating explosions, the results are catastrophic—185 killed, including public officials and CIA employees. Such an act of extreme violence calls for extreme measures—and elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp, joining forces with trusted team member Mike Nash, finds himself in the frustrating position of having to illustrate the realities of national security to government officials up in arms over the agents who rushed in to save countless American lives. Meanwhile, with three al Qaeda terrorists still at large and Nash traumatized by the horrors he witnessed during the attack, Rapp must help his friend while threading his way through the naysayers on Capitol Hill—and silently, swiftly, do what he must for the sake of his country and the pursuit of honor.


  • Typical thriller

    Well written. Hard to put down. A few too many side stories. Bad guys not as smart as some
  • Such an amazing story!

    I’ve been a fan of Flynn and the Mitch Rapp series for a couple years, and this book goes up as being in my top three. Compared to some of the other Mitch Rapp books, this one really followed the story with every chapter and stuck along with the idea of the end of one chapter lead to the realization of clues and solving of problems in the next. There was never a dull moment in this book, and the ending really showed the emotional journey that Nash went through. If this was a movie, I’d give it a standing ovation.

    I can't get enough of Mitch Rapp. This book as well as ALL the others kept me on the edge of my seat. I only have one left to read, the last man. I am so depressed. I can't imagine not having one of Vince Flynn's books to read. I have gotten so many people reading this series and they all love it. I'm on to The Last Man.

  • Great book!

    I've read all but the first of this series. I like the continuity between them all. Flynn's writing has improved through the series and there's less backtracking to cover events in the previous books. I will be reading his next as soon as it's available.
  • Another 10!

  • Another great read but Flynn should leave his own political views at home

    By ChinatraderJMR
    Another great one. I've read the last 5 in order and have now gone back and read all the Mitch Rapp books in order from the first. This one does not disappoint. My only problem with this book was the authors blatant attempt at putting his own political views above realism. Flynn is very obviously anti abortion as is his right If he just made the main character have those views as it would have been fine and even helped shape him. But when he puts words like "abortionist" in a supposably pro choice minor character, then unfortunately it sounds more like the author just finding space to vent his own views. He should have left them at home as the book does suffer for it
