From Publishers Weekly
Tom Clancy fans who have not yet discovered bestseller Flynn (Consent to Kill) and his maverick, do-whatever-it-takes hero, CIA operative Mitch Rapp, will find this page-turner right up their alley. When an al-Qaeda–style bomb attack on the motorcade of the Democratic presidential candidate, Georgia governor Josh Alexander, in Washington, D.C., a month before the November election kills the candidate's wife and several Secret Service agents, Rapp uses all the tools at his disposal to investigate the claim of the now discredited head of the protective detail that a mysterious figure in a red baseball cap set off the fatal bomb. Rapp soon finds that the motive for the outrage may be personal rather than political. While the underlying plot elements require a great deal of suspended disbelief, Flynn will pull most readers along with his taut writing and plausible vision of the real work of the intelligence community.

The writing is as fast-paced and as dramatic as ever. The plot is the typical political intrigue found in Flynn's previous books, nevertheless quite satisfying. The book's climatic moments are when Mitch goes into action, the author knows how to stage elaborate action sequences and ends the story in a very controversial way. Mitch Rapp's role is intriguing and cleverly created. The additions of new characters add to the suspense. Once again Flynn has created a novel hard to put down.
