Now in paperback, the pulse-pounding thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon Vince Flynn features counterterrorism hero Mitch Rapp as he wages a war against a new enemy with the help of a fellow soldier as dedicated-and as lethal-as they come.

Time and again, Vince Flynn has captivated readers' imaginations with his all-too-real portrayal of a secretive world where fearless men and women, bound by duty, risk their lives in a covert war they must hide from even their own political leaders. Now, in Extreme Measures, Mitch Rapp and his agency colleague, Mike Nash, may have met their match.

The CIA has detected 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 former marine officer Nash 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. But the one thing he never saw coming was that his own government was about to turn on him.

Using his insider knowledge of intelligence agencies and the military, Flynn once again delivers a smart, devastatingly intense, and jaw-droppingly realistic political thriller that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the last riveting page.

Read from the Book

Chapter 1 Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan Mike Nash glanced anxiously at his watch and then eyed the twin flat-screen monitors. Both prisoners were sleeping soundly. If all went according to plan, their slumber wouldn''t last much longer. The prisoners had been picked up seven days earlier on a routine patrol. At the time, the young GI''s had no idea whom they had stumbled upon. That revelation came later, and by accident. The brass at the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan quickly separated the two men from the other 396 enemy combatants and alerted Washington. Nash was one of the first people called. The secure phone began ringing at 2:23 in the morning the previous Sunday. The watch officer at the National Counterterrorism Center gave him the news. Nash thanked him, hung up, and contemplated whether or not he should get out of bed and head in to the office. Catching a couple of highvalue targets was exciting, but Nash knew from experience that people would be tripping over each other trying to take credit. Having just returned from London, he needed the sleep a hell of a lot more than he needed recognition. Less than a minute later the phone started up again. This time it was his boss''s boss, Irene Kennedy, the director of the CIA. Nash listened without comment for a good twenty seconds and then replied, "I''m on it." With that, he kissed his wife, got out of bed, threw on some comfortable travel clothes, checked on each of his four kids, grabbed his gobag, which was always pack
