Obviously George made it most enjoyable.
He has the magic. That's all I can say.
I'm sorry to say I have to agree with some of the other comments. This was a good plot but not the best Mitch Rapp. If you enjoy the series you will like this book but it won't blow you away. Maybe that's because it's predecessor American Assassin was so good, I'm not sure. Enjoy but don't expect to be amazed.
Let me start by saying I'm a huge Jim Butcher fan. I have read all of the Dresden files, twice. Great stuff. So I assumed I would love this series just the same but I didn't. At least not right away.
The start of the book is confusing and it's hard to get into the swing of things. I never had a good grasp on how the furies worked and what they could do, that wasn't really explained in a manner that I could digest. There is also a great number of characters that don't get introduced rather just get thrown into the story. After some time I got to know them and enjoy them but it took a while. It reminds me of how Characters were introduced in the first Game of Thrones book. Of course after a couple hours (days) I got to know them and enjoyed them but the introduction was sloppy in the first books like it is here and that turned me off at first but the book eventually won me over.
In the end I enjoyed the book very much but like I said it's hard to get into even if you are a Jim Butcher fan. Give it some time 4 hours + before you make a judgement.
Honestly, it's a great book but the skills of Luke Daniels take it over the top.
Oberon because: "That's the price you pay for badassery"
As usual it's a very funny book. I'm constantly surprised by Kevin Hearne and his sense of humor.
Great book, great series. If you haven't make sure you read the three before this book. It's not completely necessary but it helps with a lot of the inside jokes and background. Trust me you won't be disappointed.
