#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.

Some significant loose ends are left hanging. The next in the series, Pursuit of Honor, continues the story.

Extreme Measures was published at the time that ‘Enhanced Interrogation’ was a major news item. Flynn comes down firmly on the 24 side while delivering an excellent spy thriller in the process. Mitch Rapp has to save the US from terrorists while being handcuffed by politically correct and politically motivated leaders. It provides food for thought as the reader rapidly turns the pages.

A disjointed right wing rant about poor government. Could have been written by Rush Limbaugh

I agree with the others. The last 3 books have been phoned in. Flat dialogue, same old story. I think his publisher was holding a gun to his head. A lot like "Groundhogs Day" at the end, runs through all the Rapp plot points and then just ends.

This book is a real thriller, I highly recommend it if you like spying, action, and the bad guys losing.
