With action that sizzles from the opening paragraph and insider details that bring the story to vivid life, The Third Option showcases a New York Times bestselling author who is just hitting the peak of his extraordinary storytelling powers. Fresh from retaking a battle-scarred White House after a vicious terrorist attack on the president, Mitch Rapp, the CIA's top counterterrorism operative, is sent on his final mission. His target: a well-known German industrialist who has been selling highly sensitive equipment to one of the world's most notorious sponsors of terrorism. As Rapp meticulously prepares to take the man out, he has no idea that there are forces within his own government that are plotting to use him.
I didn't know that much about Vince Flynn novels until recently. So, I am not reading them in the order in which they were written. However, that doesn't change how much I am enjoying the fast paced, brain-teaser, plot-twisting stories. These are easy reads that don't overwhelm the reader, thus allowing the plot to engage the reader's imagination and a pretty cool mental movie is the result. I'm not sure these books have enough broad appeal to be made into movies...but my hunch is that if some studio rolls the dice on fictional Mitch Rapp, they will make a pile of non-fictional money. I'd go see it

I have read every Vince Gill book I have been able to lay my hands on. Gripping--can hardly lay it down long enough to get my work done!

Another good book! I don't know how Vince Flynn keeps the story interesting. But well worth reading.

CIA Black Ops/NYT Clueless
As always, Mitch Rapp kills the bad guys. No nightmares, no psychoanalysis and he wants no glory. The ultimate American for freedom believers.
