Publisher's Summary

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.

Rapp needs the best on this assignment, and Nash, who has served his government honorably for 16 years first as an officer in the Marine Corps and then as an operative in an elite counterterrorism team run by Rapp 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. Both have fought the war on terrorism in secret without accolades or acknowledgment of their personal sacrifices. Both have been forced to lie to virtually every single person they care about, and both have soldiered on with the knowledge that their hard work and lethal tactics have saved thousands of lives.

But the political winds have changed in America, and certain leaders on Capitol Hill are pushing to have men like Rapp and Nash put back on a short leash. And then one spring afternoon in Washington, DC, everything changes.

Using his insider knowledge of intelligence agencies and the military, Flynn once again delivers an all-too-real portrayal of a war that is that is waged every day by a handful of brave, devoted souls. Smart, fast-paced, and jaw-droppingly realistic, Extreme Measures is the political thriller of our time.

    "Great story"

    This is a typical Vince Flynn story. It is expertly crafted with very timely material.His insight about the "real world" is terrific.
    If you watch "24" this will please you. It will please you if you haven't seen "24" also.

    "No Disappoint Here"

    Do not pass this one up. It is a great listen and will make you wish there was more. Hopefully Rapp will soon be back.

    "Great book, Grandpa!"

    Excellent story, lives up to the rest of the series...but seriously, it sounds like my grandpa is reading it to me. They can't find someone younger and more energetic than George Guidall to read this thriller???

    "Required reading"

    This is an excellent suspense novel with George Guidall as reader. I know he is a busy man, but it should be required reading or listening for Mr. President-elect before January 20.

    "Amazing"

    This was the most thrilling book I'e read or heard in years. It has a compelling relevant story and by the middle there three simultaneous stories alternating through the chapters that flawlessly connect by the end.
    The charactors were staged masterfully. The heros were made to be extremely likable and I found myself pulling for them in every situation, in contrast theterrorists and ploliticians are evoked anger. I enjoyed the crafting of these charactors.
    WARNING: DO NOT START THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVE AN EXAM OR SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO GET DONE. YOU WILL LOOSE VALUABLE TIME DUE TO THE ADDICTIVE NATURE OF THIS BOOK.

    "Another Great Listen"

    Another great story by Flynn. I have listened or read all of the Mitch Rapp stories and I highly recommend this one, the reader is exceptional and the story fast paced. If you like spy thrillers then Flynn is certainly an author you should explore.

    "Flynn at his best"

    The best Flynn novel to date. I've listed to all but one and this novel is compelling, realistic, and mixes real world politics and domestic terrorism. The reader, George Guidall, is excellent as usual. My only complaint is that amount of cursing in this novel, particularly the "f" word. However, that is mostly limited to a few chapters.

    "RAPP IS BACK!!!"

    Vince Flynn is incredible. This story gets moving pretty quick and just keeps going. Mitch Rapp is one of my favorite characters and this latest adventure does not dissappoint. George Guidall is THE voice of Rapp at this point, and he delivers another excellent performance. I can't wait for the next chapter in the life of Mitch Rapp.

    "You will be holding on to the edge of your seat"

    This is another great CIA novel with Mich Rapp and many of the other characters we have all come to know. The story line is believable and Vince isn't unwilling to have bad things happen to good people, but in the end he never losses his moral compass and good does winout over evil. You will find it difficult to stop the audio book and take a break because the action is hard paste and unrelenting.

    "Most Excellent"

    A must for all Mitch Rapp fans! One of those books you don't want to stop listening to. If you have not read to any Flynn books - go a few back and start there - knowing you'll have several great listens to come.
