    This one is a page turner It is hard to put down A third terrorist cell is on its way to the US Can Rapp and Nash intercept them or will the senate judiciary committee chairman have her way and toss our heroes in the clink for using extreme measures? This may help explain the somber look on Obama's face when he exited his first briefing with the president He needs our prayer because while the book is fiction the issues are not

    710Mitch Rapp takes on terrorism and another evil monstrosity Politicians Yuck they’re just the worst Terrorist aren’t that cracking either Who will win the day? This wasn’t a normal Mitch Rapp outing in that the action took a back seat for the majority of the novel and placed focus on the battle that he and the CIA have on convincing the politicians that there methods shouldn’t be uestioned as they get results and that people who aim to blow people up shouldn’t really have human rights similar to a normal American citizen It sits very much on the right wing as does the whole series really but it’s a fun read and sort of makes sense in the grand scheme of this novel There is emphasis on a legal hearing about the methods and at no point was there any tension here which was a shame You always knew Rapp would lay it on thick and then give some home truths which made him sound extreme but then due to what happened in the book made him seem a wise messiah To be honest I wasn’t expecting where the last 20% of this book was going and it was a nice change of pace but due to where it happened in the book meant it was never going to be resolved in this outing and has rolled into the next novel So not a great deal of resolution here Not terrible by any means but this is an excellent series so this one sort of felt like a weaker entry but it still made for an easy comfort read I’ll try and pick the next one up uick to see how things are resolved

    This novel is a thinly veiled argument for the necessity of torturing prisoners which made the book difficult for me to read I think I'd probably sit on the opposite side of the aisle from Vince Flynn So reading about something repugnant like torture was torturous reading Yet I continued Here's whyFlynn's writing style is rich and fluid His characters are generally well drawn So I admired the book for its writing And he does an interesting job moving you from finding torture deplorable toward uestioning yourself if you'd actually permit it under the right circumstances Of course the senator who is prosecuting the protagonist Rapp for his inexcusable treatment of prisoners comes around to Rapp's way of thinking at the end That's not a surprise given the side of the argument we know the author is on But Flynn is creative at stirring the reader's feelings and making himher think again about the topic A main character Nash says that almost everyone is against torture It's repugnant unethical and not how we want to think of ourselves as human beings That's the sentiment of most readers and the people Flynn wants to talk to the most Then Nash turns the table and asks if a man were to kidnap and sodomize 25 children under 12 would you be willing to castrate him? We get that logical argument but are still resistant What the author then does is push our faces into such a situation he has terrorists cut the toes off and kill a cia agent At that point most readers are abhorred by the torture and would be willing to do anything to the torturer The conundrum is that it's too late; the deed was already done Knowing what we do now should we have acted differently earlier?What Flynn brings us to is both our noble desire Rapp eventually calls impractical to treat people like we'd want to be treated vs a deep set need to revenge awful deaths an eye for an eye He asks the uestion that would divide opinion If torture would reveal secrets that would prevent the deaths of innocents like children would you permit it? If torture would have prevented 911 would you have permitted it or would you be willing to let 2000 innocents die for the sake of a terrorist's Geneva Convention rights? If you ask the widows and widowers of 911 you can imagine the answersFlynn is clear where he lands on the subject I think most of us are left somewhere in the middle which is a different place from where we might have been when starting the novel Unsaid in the novel is the issue of presumed guilt not innocence and the use of torture for any reason not just suspected terrorism Were we to say the police had the right to torture anyone they suspected of anything we would protest If we say well just do it on foreigners or foreign nationals who are suspected of terrorism our opinion softens There's our moral dilemma Can we afford the risk of two measuring sticks? If we were God and knew the terrorists were terrorists no problem But we're not God We only sometimes act like HimTorture and terror are an unfortunate reality of the world we now find ourselves in This book is like reading about how cows and chickens are slaughtered so they can end up on our plates It's something that goes on that most of us are eager to forget As for the story itself the book picks up half way through The first part looks like the story will be about tracking down a terrorist cell Exciting But that gets put on hold for than half the book as Flynn develops a courtroom type of drama where the merits of torture are argued I think the author was so bent on making a point he was willing to sacrifice the plot I nearly put down the book as a result The second half is dramatic and Rapp does his super human stuff at the end which comes off to me as a little too far over the top So the writing at the end missed the markI look forward to reading another Flynn novel because of the language and next time a better execution of the plot

    I just finished this book by Vince Flynn It's only the second of his books I've read both being Mitch Rapp stories I enjoyed this one and I'm sure for those who have read many of Flynns books starring Mitch Rapp this one follows along a similar pattern I guess what I enjoyed most and I don't usually enjoy preaching in stories is the obvious opinion of our current national attitudes towards the War on Terror The current administration of course denies there is such a war or at least refrains from using that word Well no political correctness in Flynn's book Congress gets told Specifically the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee One experiences a certain satisfaction seeing these elected pecksniffian characters get their comeuppance for failing to do what they are supposed to do that is look out for the best interests of their constituencies None of them do this and we need to fire all of them and start over The thrill in this story of one man's fight against political correctness albeit through extreme measures gives one satisfaction that backs are being guarded I purposely mention nothing about the actual story line here as I wouldn't want to spoil the suspense I've not read all that many books dealing with the subject of terrorism and counterterrorism but I think Vince Flynn has this subject down pat Read this you'll enjoy it

    Fox News fan fiction We are treated to several long speeches from characters explaining the virtues of enhanced interrogation and a short story about a schoolyard fight as an analog for the justified use of violence Throughout the book women are constantly screwing everything up with their dumb womanly ideas and the men have to come in and save the day by punching some stuff At one point Rapp even says something like your mom doesn't understand because she's a woman But I'm a man so I know what it takes HaIt was interesting to have the perspective of the terrorists thrown in but the writing for them was pretty unbelievable Their motivations were flat as were their personalities

    In a world full of dime a dozen thriller writers who specialize in cardboard characters cheesy dialogue over the top action and plot choices that are beyond ridiculous Vince Flynn reminds me once again that it's entirely possible to write or read a thriller without turning off one's brain first There are no shoot outs here where the hero kills 50 people with five bullets while dodging 100 rounds aimed at him There are no stupid villains who eschew the easy kill so that they can leave the hero in some convoluted predicament from which he will inevitably escape because no one sticks around and bothers to ensure that he actually you know dies There is no insane person bent on taking over the world with the help of a ridiculously over engineered master plan And on and on Rather there is Mitch Rapp perhaps too good to be true but not overly so and committed to keeping America safe even if it means annoying some high powered types who are too naïve andor self absorbed for their own good This time around Rapp has to deal with a terrorist cell that is intent on hitting the US He knows that there were three cells out there and that only two have been put out of commission but he's called off before he can get the critical information needed to ruin the third cell's day Instead that cell manages to make its way to Washington DC where well to say would be a major spoiler Let's just say that it's a good thing that Mitch Rapp is around This is a very enjoyable book and Flynn is a writer I would recommend to anyone who is thinking about dipping a toe in the thriller pool

    Vince Flynn just keeps getting better with every book he writes His character Mitch Rapp continues to make the reader want a man like him in our covert operationsMitch again breaks all the rules and you know you love him for it He is attempting to get vital information from high ranking members of the Taliban They have been apprehended by the United States and are being held on a United States Air Force Base Mitch and his partner Mike Nash enter the base disguised as Air Force Personnel Mitch as his custom uses methods just short of torture to get the informaion he needs in his own words We're not cops We're not soldiers We're spies and spies do nasty shit to nasty people However his plans fall apart when they are discoveredTwo cells of terrorists have been discovered that intend to strike a mighty blow against the United States The problem is that there is a rumor that there is a third cell still in operation Mitch is unable to interrogte the prisoners because he is now being put in front of a Judicial Committee to explain his tacticsThose of you who have read Vince Flynn before know that Mitch Rapp have very little love for politics politicians and their laws and regualtions especially when it stops him from doing his job Mitch takes the bureacrats head on and lets them know what he thinks of them and legislation He also must walk a fine line because he does need their assistance to continue his search for this third cell of terroristsMitch does manage to win the day but is he too late to prevent an attack on the nation's capitol?An exciting read that will keep you turning pages and wondering what will happen next and maybe best of all the ending leaves you wanting and as always Flynn sets in up for Rapp's next assignment

    I have this theory that Vince Flynn novels are basically romance novels for men Now hear me out Your typical blouse ripper is the epitome of vicarious experience guilty pleasure reading Many ladies and some guys get a thrill from reading the exploits of their stoic yet vulnerable heroine pursuing the tall dark and handsome tough guy who wears his bad boy nature on his sleeve but has a hidden romantic streak just waiting to be unleashed It's fun to read fantasy stories about characters living lives you uietly wish you could live I think Vince Flynn provides a similar vicarious experience for men The bold decisive and action oriented Mitch Rapp is the hero of many an American male's daydreams Nothing much of importance is conveyed in these modern myths That's not the point These are just simple blue collar pulpy novels that strike a chord with the masculine side of our psyches and give us an out let for good old fashioned male machismo And man is it ever a blast to plow through these novels Extreme Measures tosses Mitch into an impending international incident revolving around the liberal use of enhanced interrogation techniues read mild torture while trying to uncover a terrorist plot which may be on the verge of harming the United States The narrative shifts rapidly between several character's story arcs and each one is intriguing in its own right There's your devoted husband and father character who is trying to defend his country from a radical Islamic threat while also attempting to juggle the issues that arise from a typical American family life We have a stern and idealistic United States Senator who is attempting to right perceived wrongs and ensure that America remains a nation of law and order We also have the motivated religious extremist who desires the death of his enemies above all else and will stop at nothing to get what he wants Toss it all in the mix with good old Mitch Rapp and sit back and enjoy the fireworksI noticed that much of Flynn's typical action scenes took a backseat to of a courtroom drama scenario in this go around Don't get me wrong Rapp still puts bullets into a lot of bad guys in Extreme Measures but we finally get to see what happens when the powerful political elite whom Mitch seems to innately rile up finally have had enough and decide to make the attempt to nail his proverbial anti terror hide to the wall Full disclosure I never really felt any tension during the courtroom drama portions To be honest Extreme Measures was uite light on tension throughout However I had a healthy sense of dread throughout the novel simply because I sensed where the somewhat heavy handed foreshadowing was leading the plotDespite all that the final uarter had me riveted right up to the climax There was a wee bit of fan service at the very end that felt a little too simplistic for me to swallow But taken with the whole Extreme Measures was another solid Flynn outing Man this guy wrote great storiesFour stars
