This book falls way short of the other novels. Every inch of Vince Flynn has been squeezed out and this story was good but extremely flawed. Why would mitch bring together a group of enemies when he could easily recruit from other friendly sources? Why recruit people he swore to kill if he ever saw them again? Why save a man he wanted to kill in a previous book? These flaws show me that this series is over. It reminds me of the Bourne series and the covert one series after Ludlum died. They went from great to mediocre.
