Mitch Rapp and his protege, 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 16 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 jihadists and their culture of death. Both have fought the war on terrorism in secret without accolades or acknowledgment 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 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.
This audiobook entertained me well in my driving. Now I have decided that anything narrated by Mr. Guidal I'll buy, not only audiobook by Mr. Flyn, from now on.
Luckily I listened to these books in the series before the price sky-rocketed up to $30.00 per book. I refuse, along with many others, to purchase audiobooks above $20.00. The prices have gotten out of control!!
Dont get me wrong, I really love Vince Flynn's books, just not the exsorbidant prices!
Ok I get it.
I really liked the Mitch Rapp series until I listened to this book. Ok I get it. Torture is good and anyone who thinks differently is an idiot. Just change the character names to Nancy Pelosi and President Obama. I like to read books to escape not to get hit over the head with an authors opinion on terrorism and torture..(and I am sympathetic on this issue). I will just listen to talk radio or Hannity instead of buying his books. Flynn seemed to walk a finer line with previous books. Unfortunately, with Extreme Measures Flynn has crossed a line into blantant op ed territory.
