Mitch Rapp—the “mainstay of the modern techno-thriller” (New York Journal of Books)—returns in this exhilarating political thriller as he fights for the sake of his country and the pursuit of honor.

Less than a week after a series of deadly explosions devastated Washington, DC, key officials are up in arms over whether to make friends or foes of the clandestine elite counterterrorism operatives that stepped between the enemy and countless American lives. Not for the first time, Mitch Rapp finds himself struggling to illustrate the realities of national security to politicians who are content to sit on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, three al-Qaeda terrorists are still at large, and Rapp has been unofficially ordered to find them by any means necessary. No one knows the personal, physical, and emotional sacrifices required of the job better than Rapp. When he sees his colleague Mike Nash cracking under the pressure, he makes a call he hopes will save his friend, assuage the naysayers on Capitol Hill, and get him one step closer to the enemy before it’s too late. Once again, Rapp proves himself to be a hero unafraid “to walk the fine line between the moral high ground and violence” (The Salt Lake Tribune) for our country’s safety and for the pursuit of honor.

    Vince Flynn reinforces my appreciation for the warriors who have made the USA great.

    A bit slow.
  • One of the best ones.

    I've read all the Vince Flynn books in order (up until Pursuit of Honor) and this one felt a little, "off". Considering everything the author drags you through in the course of this story, I was hoping for a more substantial, satisfying ending. It felt like he was writing the book, his deadline came up and he just quickly wrote an ending so he could hand it in. Would I recommend the book? Well, if you are reading the series, as I am, and will continue to do, I'd say read it. It's an emotional roller coaster as are the other books. Realistically, every book can't be, "the best book". It may just be my personal preference for a longer resolution that has slanted my review. The book still has everything you'd expect from a Mitch Rapp thriller.
  • Typical thriller

    Well written. Hard to put down. A few too many side stories. Bad guys not as smart as some
  • Such an amazing story!

    I’ve been a fan of Flynn and the Mitch Rapp series for a couple years, and this book goes up as being in my top three. Compared to some of the other Mitch Rapp books, this one really followed the story with every chapter and stuck along with the idea of the end of one chapter lead to the realization of clues and solving of problems in the next. There was never a dull moment in this book, and the ending really showed the emotional journey that Nash went through. If this was a movie, I’d give it a standing ovation.

    I can't get enough of Mitch Rapp. This book as well as ALL the others kept me on the edge of my seat. I only have one left to read, the last man. I am so depressed. I can't imagine not having one of Vince Flynn's books to read. I have gotten so many people reading this series and they all love it. I'm on to The Last Man.

    Another great novel from Vince Flynn. He's my favorite author. Read the whole series.
  • Great book!

    I've read all but the first of this series. I like the continuity between them all. Flynn's writing has improved through the series and there's less backtracking to cover events in the previous books. I will be reading his next as soon as it's available.
