There are few assasins who are as likeable as Mitch Rapp. He's deadly, to be sure, but he's also got his his vulnerable, human side and throughout his action series, Vince Flynn, gives us plenty of opportunity to bond with his hero. This book is an excellent read, with lots of action, lots of suspense, and lots of, well, killing. But we're on the side of the angels with Mitch and while we deplore the politics that seem bent on destroying the USA from the inside, we're relieved to know that Mitch Rapp is there to protect the country and its citizens. One can't help wondering with a little shiver of fear if there really are men like Mitch working behind the scenes in the real world and one might even hope there are. It's hard to imagine any one person having all of the skills and daring of this character, however. But that's what makes heroes such fun to read about. If you like action adventure, this is a book for you.
