An Enjoyable But Alarming Book That Is All Too Similar To What is Going on in Washington Today,
This review is from: Pursuit of Honor (Mitch Rapp, No. 10) (Hardcover)
Mitch Rapp has been spending a lot of time in Washington lately, and the alarming thing is that Rapp and Irene Kennedy, head of the CIA are fighting the exact same battles we read about in the newspapers and hear about on television every day.
Congress and the American people who were so supportive of their efforts after 9/11 have now become moralists and are more worried about protecting the rights of foreign detainees than supporting Rapp, Kennedy and those sworn to give their lives to protect us.
This is a major thrust of "Pursuit of Honor," but it is also the major thrust of what is going on in Washington and politics today. Most of what the American people hear today would condemn what Rapp, Kennedy and the Vince Flynn's CIA call "extreme measures."
To support or condone "extreme measures" today (October,2009) would be considered to be un-American. Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp at least give us the other side of the debate--and what could happen if the United States' loses its focus on the War on Terror.
Sometime truth is stranger (and more tragic) than fiction. Let's hope this is not one of those times.
Let this be said for Mitch Rapp--he is an over-achieving, under- appreciated American, counterterrorism at its best.
And Vince Flynn? He's the best, simply the best. And this is another great read from Flynn. His magic continues.
Be prepared to the read the last 75-80 pages at one sitting. And if you have a weak heart, have your medicine near by. This is a thriller. You would expect nothing less from Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp.
