                               An Amazing Read!


In the newest devastatingly intense thriller by 1 New York Times
bestselling phenomenon Vince Flynn, his deadly and charismatic hero
Mitch Rapp wages a war against a new enemy with the help of a fellow
soldier as dedicated -- and as lethal -- as they come.Vince Flynns thrillers,
featuring counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp, dominate the imagination
of readers everywhere. In them, Flynn captures the secretive world of the
fearless men and women, who, bound by duty, risk their lives in a covert
war they must hide from even their own political leaders.Now, Rapp and
his protégé, Mike Nash, may have met their match. The CIA has detected
and intercepted two terrorist cells, but a third is feared to be on the loose.
Led by a dangerous mastermind obsessed with becoming the leader of al-
Qaeda, this determined and terrifying group is about to descend on
America.Rapp needs the best on this assignment, and Nash, who has
served his government honorably for sixteen years -- first as an officer in
the Marine Corps and then as an operative in an elite counterterrorism
team run by Rapp -- is his choice. Together, they have made careers out
of meeting violence with extreme violence and have never wavered in the
fight against the jihads and their culture of death. Both have fought the war
on terrorism in secret without accolades or acknowledgement of their
personal sacrifices. Both have been forced to lie to virtually every single
person they care about, and both have soldiered on with the knowledge
that their hard work and lethal tactics have saved thousands of lives.But
the political winds have changed in America, and certain leaders on
Capitol Hill are pushing to have men like Rapp and Nash put back on a
short leash. And then one spring afternoon in Washington, DC, everything
changes.Using his insider knowledge of intelligence agencies and the
military, Flynn once again delivers an all-too-real portrayal of a war that is
waged every day by a handful of brave, devoted souls. Smart, fast-paced,
and jaw-droppingly realistic, Extreme Measures is the political thriller of our
time.
Having read the first three installments of the Mitch Rapp series, I "jumped"
to one of the latest. I am sorry I did this. I would rather have read all the
books in their proper sequence. HOW EVER, this takes nothing away from
the power of this book. I believe that Vince Flynn speaks from a great deal
of experience; he appears to know things that most of us can only imagine.
His grasp on the inner workings of the CIA, not to mention his total
understanding of the role of Politics in much of our Government's decision
making, makes this book not just believable but chilling as well! The story
line is credible. As always, his characterizations are beautifully descriptive.
There is a tension that Mr. Flynn builds throughout the book to almost
force the reader to keep going. I found myself simply unable to put the
book down as it neared its conclusion.

I believe that Mr. Flynn's books should be required reading for high school
students. Only by reading these carefully crafted and extremely
entertaining novels have I been able to fully come to an understanding of
the unbelievably brutal capacity of our enemy today. We can hear all about
it on the news. But nothing can bring a person to feel the horror of terror
like reading one of these books.

It is impossible for me to give a high enough rating to Extreme Measures. If
you want to really understand the threats we face as a nation, you MUST
read Extreme Measures, and all of the other Mitch Rapp books. They are
incomparable!
