5.0 out of 5 stars Flynn's back, and delivers the goods, November 5, 2007
This review is from: Protect and Defend: A Thriller (Hardcover)
Flynn has a great facility for writing political thrillers that are also rip-snorting action-adventures, featuring his signature Mitch Rapp character. He also has an uncanny knack for dealing with the hot topics of the day -- in this case a nuclear-armed Iran and torture -- which is quite a feat when you consider the lead time involved in writing and publishing a novel.

In "Protect and Defend", Flynn's pulled it off yet again, as these are two of the hottest topics on the political scene today.

This book moves like a runaway train, fast paced, exciting, and very involving for me; I enjoyed it very much.

The action is covered, from the Oval Office to the Supreme Council of Iran, to the gritty backstreets of Mosul in Iraq, to naval engagements in the Straight of Hormuz.

One of the great things about Flynn's books is that you're not just involved in the front-line action, taking place in a vaguely-defined crisis, but like in Tom Clancy's works you're reading about all the political decisions and ramifications right up to the top.

Rapp is also a delight, kind of a modern American James Bond, except more lethal and brutal, a character more suited to today's era than the created-in-the-50s Bond.

I read this book almost in one non-stop sitting. I really enjoyed it and always look forward to the new Flynn book.

Get it.
