    PREACHY. Weak plot. Mr. Flynn can do much better.

    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

    The City of D.C. Faces Trouble...Enter Mitch Rapp

    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 Story Of What Can Still Happen

    EXTREME MEASURES was published in October 2008, which means the manuscript was finished in 2007. At that time America's homeland still enjoyed the protection by our dedicated intelligence services and elements of our military. Today Senators like the fictional Senator Lonsdale, aided by the Justice Department, are attempting to prosecute the real Rapps, O'Brines, Ridleys and Nashs that have kept us save since 9/11.

    I agree with other reviewers that said there was too much of Nash's diaper changing and bedroom problems. The zero tolerance episode was cute, but tended to distract the reader from the story line. As for profanity, when I write dialogue the characters talk like they should. Some use profanity and some don't. Characters should speak like their real world counterparts do.

    Flynn tells a compelling story of another terrorist attack. Three al-Qaeda cells have been trained and then sent to attack three American cities. Two are captured in route. The book is the story of the third cell.

    There are two main story lines: political intrigue in Washington and dedicated terrorists bent on making another attack in America. Unfortunately, the Senators, Congressmen, and staffer depicted in the story are all to similar to the ones we see on Sunday morning talk shows and the news networks. Men and women who either have no concept of the danger lurking in Islamic lands, or are willing do anything to promote their careers and agendas.

    Flynn does a credible job of demonstrating the difference between "enhanced interrogation" and torture. It is probably to much to expect that the real Senators like Lonsdale will read and understand the author's message.

    Some reviewers have called EXTREME MEASURES a right wing rant. Like Senator Lonsdale, they will not believe it can happen (I guess 9/11 or the first World Trade Center bombing never happened) until it does. Unless they are at ground zero, then they will believe.

    Flynn has written a compelling and realistic story of the next Islamic terrorist attack, but I think he has underplayed the magnitude of the attack I believe is now being planned. An attack that must be at least one order of magnitude greater than 9/11. A nuclear, radiological or biological attack.

    Some may say the terrorists are cardboard two dimensional characters, but in reality they are much like the ones described in the book, religious fanatics willing to die for Allah. Flynn uses several characters to illustrate the different type of terrorist: Harkim, the cell leader and total fanatic; Karim, the practical terrorists who knows when to quit so he can fight another day; Haggani, another fanatic that love to kill children and would require a very long time to debrief; and al-Haq, a man who knows when to make a deal.

    EXTREME MEASURES is a book all bleeding hearts should read. The real bad guys are worse than Flynn describes. We must all remember where the demonstrations of joy occurred on September 12, 2001.

    This was my introduction to Vince Flynn. I usually try to stay away from political drama-violent stories. I am more into satire-mystery.

    I found Vince Flynns, Extreme Measures, to be totaly unexpected. This is the first of his books I've read. I will pick up the rest of his books and read them with enthusiasm. Infact a close friend is offering me his librairy of Vince Flynn novels. I felt his character development to be great..along with the plot. I read the book on a trip to San Antonio and back. I believe he is not far off of what could happen if the US is not attentive to the responsabilites of protecting the 'home' land.<BR/>I have recommended this book to others.

    One of his best!

    I've been a huge Vince Flynn fan since a friend of mine turned me on to him a few years ago. Now I can't wait for every new release. This is absolutely one of his best. The only knock I had heard against it beforehand was that there wasn't as much action as his other books. While that is accurate, there's not as much action, it really doesn't matter with his writing style. I was flipping pages as fast as I ever had before. Normally, I have to say, 'political thrillers' bore the life out of me. Not this one. <BR/><BR/>Awesome book! A must read for any action lover

    Best one since Consent to Kill

    I loved the introduction of Mike Nash and the "real life" he leads. Many political thrillers end up being terrific adventures but at times the hero seems almost too "kick-butt" to believe. In this novel Rapp is vintage Rapp and focused in a way I haven't seen in the last two books. Don't get me wrong, I loved the last two books where Rapp was raw and vengeful, but the story line in Extreme Measures was focused and brilliant. With Nash and Rapp you get the perfect combination. I can't wait for more Rapp/Nash novels! It was awesome in the "extreme"!

    an exhilarating fast-paced thriller,

    The CIA Director sends counterterrorism expert Mike Nash to Afghanistan to interrogate two prisoners, Taliban Commander of Suicide Operations Abu Haggani and Taliban Liaison Officer to al-Qaeda Mohammed al-Haq. However as he is performing his duty, Justice Department lawyers deployed in DC called insisting he crossed the legal line. Nash calls in the cavalry counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp.--------------- They learn of two cells that are easily destroyed and hints of a third group led by an ambitious fanatic mastermind Karim Nour-al-Din, who is to become chief of al-Qaeda. To even be considered as heir to Bin Laden, Karim needs a new 9/11 his target DC where Congress and the Justice Department tie the hands of field agents Nash and Rapp.--------------- EXTREME MEASURES is an exhilarating fast-paced thriller, which asks whether the means justifies the end if violating the Geneva Convention and other anti torture laws could have prevented 9/11 would that make it acceptable especially since the enemy can claim likewise. The story line is fast-paced as Nash and Rapp are restricted from doing their full duty while Karim is free to do what he wants. Although extreme on one side of the debate, Vince Flynn insures the opposition is heard inside a tense thriller.------- Harriet Klausner Dangerous Heart

    Flynn's Best Yet

    EXTREME MEASURES is Vince Flynn's best book to date. A tremendous plot carefully developed in multiple locals with interconnected events moving along at a steady pace. In this type of novel the characters are so often simple, with no deveopment. Flynn on the other hand presents many of his characters as complex individuals, providing background detail not often found in thrillers. Even the "good guys" have their own demons. The political relevance of this story is timely and thought-provoking. Should be required reading for those on the left.

    Another winner

    I found this novel very fluid. I think that the addition of Mike Nash and his plotline, as well as the other two, kept the story fresh and crisp. Typical Vince Flynn.

    Extreme Wait Between Books!

    I loved this book! I wish Flynn would write more frequently. I was hoping ex-SAC Rivera would appear in this book as Rapp's love interest but alas, no mention of her. Kennedy also took a back seat in this thriller.<BR/>It is chilling to realize how much the enemy learns from us and angers me when politicians do not support the war on terror. Vince is so good at<BR/>making these points. I also loved having Mike Nash brought into the plot.<BR/>Good job, Vince. Keep 'em coming!!!!

    Return To The Top!

    This is the best Vince Flynn book since before Memorial Day. I couldn't put it down, not that I could put down any of his books. I love the politcal undercutting taking place in Washington, Rapp's unshakeable determination and confidence and there is a great side story with Mike Nash. Flynn even worked Scott Coleman back into the mix reminding us he is still around, hopefully to play a bigger role in a novel to come.

    I think Vince Flynn is the best Action/Adventure author writing today. I always have to read his books in one sitting, and I'm always left wanting more. I'm already looking forward to his next book.

    Flynn's main protagonist, Mitch Rapp, is simply the best agent/operative in fiction today. He makes james Bond and Jason Bourne seem like school crossing guards. The plot is believable and current. This is a book that you could read several times and still love it. A+

    The best one yet!

    I have read the whole series and found this the best Mitch Rapp book yet. It is very fast-paced and i was happy not to be in Iran for the whole story again. It feels very topical and 'insidery' as it pertains to the CIA and the terrorist threat. Very suspenseful and fast moving. I read it in two days.

    Extreme Measures

    I think this is another great story about Mitch Rapp. Only complaint<BR/>I have for Mr Flynn is " take shorter times between writing" I wish<BR/>he would write a Mitch book every month. Mitch reminds me of the T.V<BR/>series " 24", Mr Flyyn, great writing.

    Flynn delivers again!

    Vince Flynn is my choice for the Master of action/thriller fiction. After nine books, one might think Mitch Rapp would run out of steam, but he hasn't lost any punch. Strong plot and continued character development of other players (Nash). Already waiting for the next book.

    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.

    Politically astute and savvy -

    Flynn really gets to the core of what ails our "politically correct" environment and attitude. This book is as much a story as a message of everything that is wrong with our intelligence gathering overseers- the political hacks in Washington.
