3.0 out of 5 stars Change of pace for Vince Flynn, November 29, 2008
This review is from: Extreme Measures: A Thriller (The Mitch Rapp Series) (Hardcover)
Vince Flynn takes a different direction with his characters in this one. Rapp takes a background role and although his scenes are a delight, it is Mike Nash who is the main good guy. Nash offers something else, he is a family man with some domestic issues, smart but not the bulldozer that Rapp is.
Against the background of an impending attack on the US, this is a book about political in-fighting and how the rights of individuals should be balanced against the need to protect the Nation. The CIA methods are being questioned by liberal politicians and slowing down the need to fight fire with fire, is the main thrust of this book.
The point is made bluntly and is made a little too obvious at times.
This is an okay thriller but not up to previous high standards.

Nice review, I've fallen behind on Flynn. I'm reading Memorial Day, which personally I'm not that into. I mean its ok, but I feel lacking. But I wanna go through the books in order and due to my limited time who the hell knows when I'll get to this one LOL.

I thought about skipping Memorial Day for now and going right into the next book. We'll see.
