People have a right to pursuit of happiness. Jan 11, 2010
3 1/2 stars.
Mitch Rapp and Mike Nash stopped a group of terrorists before they could destroy the National Counterterrorism Center. 185 people died including some in congress and some in CIA.
Three of the terrorists have escaped and have cut their ties with al Qaeda, making them harder to find. In addition, Mitch finds that there are a group of politicians who question his ways and feels that he is out of control.
The characters are well developed. We know of Mike Nash's family and the manner in which his children react with Mitch, shows his human side. The dialogue is crisp and Flynn doesn't waste words.
The plot is developed methodically. We see what the terrorists are doing as they plan their next attact and then view what Mitch is doing in order to stop them before more people are killed.
In enjoyed the book but felt that the time Mitch had to explain his actions to naive members of congress took away from the flow of the story and lessened the suspense.
