Before he was considered a CIA-super agent, before he was thought of as a terrorist's worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a star college athlete with an untapped instinct for violence.
Tensions in the Middle East are simmering when Central Intelligence Angency Director Irene Kennedy pays a visit to Syracuse University, where she hopes to recruit none other than Mitch Rapp, a student who has quickly climbed up the academic and athletic ranks. At first glance, he appears like any other smart, good-looking American college kid. Under the surface, however, a tempest rages. Tragedy entered Mitch's life a year before when 35 of his classmates, including his girlfriend, perished on Pan Am flight 103. Since then, Mitch has grieved their senseless deaths and has felt helpless in his desire for revenge. When Kennedy arrives on campus, his career path is suddenly laid out for him.
Nine months later, after gruelling training, Mitch finds himself in Istanbul on his first assignment, which is to assassinate the Turkish arms dealer who sold the explosives used in the Pan Am attack. Mitch hits his target but quickly sees, for the first time, what revenge means to the enemy. When Mitch's mentor and a fellow recruit are kidnapped and tortured by a dangerous group of Islamic jihadists, he must stop at nothing to save them.
Just like all the books from the Mitch Rapp series, this one is a great read that keeps you hooked from the beginning to end. It loses one star because the digital version has an incredible number of spelling and grammatical errors that aren't present in other Vince Flynn novels.
Good read but many grammatical errors.
Another good story by Vince Flynn, however the edge was taken off it by so many spelling and grammatical errors.
Mitch Rapp should go and find the proof readers and give them a clip around the ear. No excuse for such shoddy proofing and editing.
Looking forward to reading more of the adventures of Rapp - I just hope they've hired a new proof reader at Simon & Schuster.
Most intense read I've experienced in years. Loved every page and didn't want it to end.
