by Vince Flynn

Pocket Books | August 25, 2009 | Mass Market Paperbound

Extreme Measures: A Thriller is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
The pulse-pounding thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn features counterterrorism hero Mitch Rapp as he wages a war against a new enemy with the help of a fellow soldier.

In the secretive world where fearless men and women wage a daily covert war, the CIA has intercepted two terrorist cells—but a third, led by a dangerous mastermind, is feared to be on the loose. Counterterrorist agent Mitch Rapp joins forces with a warrior as dedicated—and lethal—as they come: ex-Marine and elite operative Mike Nash. Both Rapp and Nash have stared down the jihadist culture of death. Both have saved thousands of lives without accolades or acknowledgment of their personal sacrifices. But the political winds have changed on Capitol Hill, and certain leaders want Mitch Rapp put back on a short leash. And when a nightmare scenario descends on Washington, DC, Rapp and Nash will follow new rules of engagement: their own.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Action My first time reading Vince Flynn and I found him to be every bit as good as Ludlum. A super plot with counterterrorist, terrorists and fumbling politicians. One could certainly imagine a touch of reality when reading this one. But the bottom line is a job has to be done. I had trouble putting this one down and read well into the night. A must for cloak and dagger fans. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Political Intrique 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.

Read from the Book

Extreme Measures 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 high-value 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 f
