    At 47, Gil is the world's oldest 22-year-old man. He lives rent-free as a handyman in the L.A. summer house of a couple of rich retirees who only come out for vacations. Gruff, shrewdly observant, but perplexed and beleaguered by women since his nasty divorce, Gil has been dating Sara, an animal communicator, long enough to converse freely with all four of his dogs (especially Jimmy, the alpha).

    Ron says: "good little story if you like doggies"
    "Dog conversations very entertaining, not much else"
    Overall

    The parts of the book where the main character speaks with the dogs were very entertaining and funny, however everything else was disappointing. The plot was all over the place, with family squabbles, girlfriends, ex-wives, natural disasters, and non-stop drinking. It's hard to sympathize (much less actually like) the main character - as he lies and cheats his way through the whole story, spends most of the book half-drunk and/or sleeping in the back of his van, waffling about whether he likes his girlfriend, and antagonizing just about everybody he meets.

    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.

    F says: "Kickass Thriller - With Politics!"
    "Too much politics, not enough action"
    Overall

    I've been a big fan of Vince Flynn for years, however I've noticed that his books have become more and more about politics in the past few years. As a "political thriller," Extreme Measures is about 95% politics and 5% thriller - which in my mind is the exact opposite of what it should be.

    This is not to say that he should dumb down his stories and make them pure action -- but I really don't want to read hundreds of pages about senate subcommittee hearings.
