CIA operative Mitch Rapp follows a trail of contract killers leading directly to the heart of our nation's capital in "New York Times" bestselling author Vince Flynn's eighth explosive thriller. It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose. When presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is ambushed by a group of terrorists, the nation is thrown into turmoil. Two weeks following the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. On the surface it appears to be the work of al-Qaeda, despite the tremendous job that the U.S. and her allies have done eliminating terrorist cells within the heart of America. While the FBI and the rest of the government begin scouring the world for jihadists, CIA director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon are presented with classified information so toxic that they consider destroying it altogether, as it contains intelligence pointing to some of the most powerful players in Washington. Enter Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion. His journey takes him through the shadowy world of contract killers, into the darkest corners of the globe, and eventually back to Washington, where the fragile pillars of power are shaken to their core.

Another great book by Vince Flynn. Hard to put down once you get into it. Sometimes the stories seem real but even if fiction, they are entertaining.

A Master of Mystery
Mr Flynn's writing has been a favorite of mine since his first book. I love the fact that he uses the same character in all his books. I feel as if I know the character personally. He is a master at intrigue and I will purchase any book to which his name is attached.

Another excellent read
Vince Flynn has done it again. Another well written thriller that will make the book hard to put down.

Who knew politics could be so exciting? A great story with ruthless criminals, devious politicians, dedicated AND corrupt secret service agents, and a super CIA operative who almost single-handedly uncovers a conspiracy. It seems Mitch's wife had a name after all, Anna, but she was apparently killed off betwen books and he's finished his mourning before this story starts. Another one of those books where you're telling yourself, 'Just one more chapter, then I'll go to bed...'
