Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan where he leads the ultra secret counterterrorism Special Forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into Northern Pakistan.

This was a very fast-paced book about how politics and intelligence gathering can sometimes work well together. CIA operative, Mitch Rapp is a character who's not afraid to do what needs to be done. Better him, than me. It has a commando raid, political intrigue, torture, and sexual tension. I appreciated that Mitch Rapp stayed true to his wife, but I wish the author would have at least taken the time to give her a name. Throughout the entire book, she is referred to only as his wife, even once they are reunited.
