"Extreme Measure" by Vince Flynn

Mitch Rapp, book 9

Having read all of his novels, there is no doubt Vince Flynn is one of my favourite authors. This latest thriller features Mitch Rapp and Mike Nash fighting one more battle against terrorism.

This is a very addictive series that captures the secretive world of the fearless men and women risking their lives in covert operations hidden from the scrutiny of their political leaders. This story starts with the CIA detecting and intercepting two terrorist cells, a third is rumoured to be still at large.

Rapp and Nash have to think on their feet and have to be at their fighting best; unfortunately this does not go well with their political leaders who wish to have them put on a short leash.

But one afternoon everything changes…... terrorists make their way into the US, mayhem and destruction follows.

This novel plunges us into a conspiracy with political intrigue, action packed with a lot of tension, violence and gory descriptions.

In this novel the dominance of Nash and his domestic life have left Rapp and Kennedy with a lesser role. I found it added a different twist and removed some of the predictability we have been lulled into.
