In this book, the next installment of the Mitch Rapp series, readers are once again not disappointed. The author, Vince Flynn, keeps up the suspense until the last second as Rapp must make a point to politicains too selfish to understand what he does while at the same time, he must find and thwart a terror attack. Vince Flynn delves into the politics of our nation's capitol and gives an honest depiction of what goes on behind the closed doors of the D.C. insiders. Mitch Rapp's complex character is once again displayed as he ignores political correctness and his superiors to do the right thing as he attempts to rid the world of evil. A true fan of suspense novels will be very appreciative of the novel Extreme Measures as it goes beyond any thriller I have ever read in plot and politics.

A strong series has been getting progressively worse over the last three books. Readers understand and read this series because of the strong Rapp character who has undying focus on rooting out the terrorist organization. The reader does not need to be preached too constantly throughout the book that terrorism is bad and the government must have extreme latitude in dealing with the threat. Your fans get that! Mr. Flynn, please get back to the tight plots. On positive side, it appears that Mr. Flynn is getting back to character development which was lacking in the past two books. I consider this book strike one of three before Mr. Flynn is delegated to the same pile of junk as James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell

    Not his best book

    I have read all of Flynn's books and this is by far the worst. Not the typical action that I expect from Rapp. I hope the next book is better.

    Maybe take a pass on this one.

    I have read all of Flynn's Rapp series and am halfway through this one and the more he gets into the current anti-terrorism war, the more preachy Flynn and Rapp become. Page after page of a constant harangue of political nonsense that quickly gets tiresome and really slows the book down to a crawl. Please Vince, more action and fewer speeches would be great. So far this one is a drag. Also, this new sidekick of Rapp's I think is unnecessary and uninteresting! Refund anyone?
