Alexander survives the attack, although members of his entourage are not so lucky. It appears to be the work of al-Qaeda. But then CIA director Irene Kennedy is presented with classifed information so toxic that she considers destroying it altogether. Instead she summons Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion. Entering the shadowy world of contract killers, Rapp pursues his unseen enemy through the darkest corners of the globe - until finally, back in Washington, the truly shocking truth behind the attempted assassination is revealed, and the fragile pillars of power are shaken to the core.Read Less
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...'
