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 read. Only bad thing about this book was that it kept me listening rather going to sleep!
Don't understand some of the comments about the narrator - I think he is doing a great job.
I will look for from same author and narrator.
This like all the other Flynn books was amazing! However, the unabridged reader is a old man who mumbles--which makes the book extremely hard to listen to. I would recommend the reading the book, if possible, and only listening to the abridged versions of all the Flynn books from audible.
I like this series and if you are reading this you mostl likely do too. One more episode of The Mitch Rapp Show. So you already know the deal and this book delivers. The only critisism is that it leans to shodenfreuda to make it's point and it was a little embarrasing to be listneing to such a "see, I told you so" fest. But I can't say it's not exactly what I and other readers have been secretly asking for, for years.
This book is just ok. I usually love Vince Flynn but I am not loving this one and I think it's the narrator. He tries to hard to make things sound exciting, and I really hate the way he does women's voices. The plot is good, but not as exciting as others.
Found the story line exciting and interesting, but there were long sections preaching about extreme measures usage that should have been shortened.
This was an awesome book. I was not able to put it down I took it every where I went. I have listen to it again with the same vigor as before. The character Mitch Rapp is on point. I highly recommend this book.
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.
