Description

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

The pulse-pounding thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn features counterterrorism hero Mitch Rapp as he wages a war against a new enemy with the help of a fellow soldier.

In the secretive world where fearless men and women wage a daily covert war, the CIA has intercepted two terrorist cells—but a third, led by a dangerous mastermind, is feared to be on the loose. Counterterrorist agent Mitch Rapp joins forces with a warrior as dedicated—and lethal—as they come: ex-Marine and elite operative Mike Nash. Both Rapp and Nash have stared down the jihadist culture of death. Both have saved thousands of lives without accolades or acknowledgment of their personal sacrifices. But the political winds have changed on Capitol Hill, and certain leaders want Mitch Rapp put back on a short leash. And when a nightmare scenario descends on Washington, DC, Rapp and Nash will follow new rules of engagement: their own.

    I have been a Mitch Rapp fan for many books now, and I have enjoyed them all some a “little more”than others. EXTREME MEASURES ranks as my absolute favorite. I credit this to the fact that this book rang true and crystal clear to me that this scenario is extremely close to reality due to the world we live in today. From the unknown front line heroes that put their lives in jeopardy to keep us safe to the bureaucrats in Washington that seem to be more concerned about their own future than the well being of the country. An excellent read and a “wake up call”for all....
  • Great read!

    I couldn't put it down. The characters were so great, the personal, and perilous situations were awesome! The thought of another attack on the US and how we protect ourselves is a sobering one. Vince Flynn does an awesome job setting out an awesome story.

    While not as good as the rest of Rapp books, it still a page turner. It could have moved a little faster. It dragged on in some parts.
