Publisher's Summary

The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash.

Now that the initial shock of the catastrophe is over, key Washington officials are up in arms over whether to make friends or foes of the agents who stepped between the enemy's bullets and countless American lives regardless of the legal consequences. Not for the first time, Rapp finds himself in the frustrating position of having to illustrate the realities of national security to politicians whose view from the sidelines is inevitably obstructed.

Meanwhile, three of the 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 Nash cracking under the pressure of the mission and the memories of the horrors he witnessed during the terrorist attack, 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, for the sake of freedom, for the pursuit of honor.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Fabulous espionage thriller!"

    I'm listening to all of Vince Flynn's novels for the third time, this time in no specific order. Pursuit of Honor in novel #12 in order of Mitch Rapp's life, #10 in the Rapp series in order written, and novel #11 in order written of all of Vince Flynn's novels.

    I've said before that in my opinion Vince Flynn is the best and most consistent author of espionage thrillers ever. He simply had no peers. The Mitch Rapp series is the best espionage thriller series ever written. Every novel written by Vince Flynn is as close to perfect as a novel gets. When Flynn died three years ago the world lost its best author.

    Pursuit of Honor is superbly written and narrated. In the novel we see a mature Mitch Rapp 20 years into his CIA career.

    "A Continuing Story"

    This story picks up where Extreme Measured ended. Mitch Rapp again continues to protect America from terrorists while doing pokitcal battle with congressmen and senators who do not like his tactics. If you are a Vince Flynn fan, you will definitely like this latest book. I would recommend you consider reading Extreme Measures first as it will significantly help establish the characters and story line. My only criticsm is that at the end, the pace of the story accelerated greatly and there was much less detail provided. I don't want to give the story away, but the consequences that led to the final "event" should have been anticipated by Rapp and his bosses. However, these are minor annoyances as I had a hard time not just sitting down and listening to the whole book. There were also plenty of loose ends left that could find their way into the next book - I can hardly wait.

    "Action packed, fast paced, the BEST reader"

    I rarely write reviews but this one deserves high praise. It helps if you read Extreme Measure, the preceding book but is not necessary. Quick paced, just enough description, and great story telling. George Guidall is absolutely the very best reader there is. His reading is real story telling. Thank you Vince Flynn and George Guidall

    "Excellent!"

    I'm just in the middle and already thinking about how sad it would be when it ends. I'm absolutely addicted to Guidall's voice and to Flynn's writing!

    Simply the best series available.

    "2 credits"

    Extreme Measures and Pursuit of Honor is one of the best books I have ever listened to but it was just that one book divided into two so Vince Flynn (who one of my favorite authors) could make an extra buck. I would have enjoyed the book just as much as a 2 credit, 25 hour book. The end of Pursuit was a little weak as a lone book but as the end of the both it was very fitting. Overall this these two books are in my top ten rating. Every American should read this author as he is one of the few authors out there with a clue as to how the muslim world really looks at this county. An how the liberal left makes things so much easier for the the extremist.

    "Brilliant"

    This was my first Vince Flynn book and I am hooked! Flynn nails the atmosphere here in DC on the head.

    "I hate to have the story end"

    In contrast to my intolerance of Patricia Cornwell's psycho-babble that has replaced the intrigue of her classics, Vince Flynn has me looking forward to every opportunity to hear more. The theme incites emotion to the point of wanting to write my senators to make sure they are not thwarting the actions of a real life Mitch Rapp. To think our government wants to hold our soldiers ciivilly responsible for doing things that are captured in Flynn's "fiction" to keep us free and safe makes me think of them as the traitors putting principle in front of life and death practicality. Hopefully his books will inspire some of our youth to emulate Rapp in coming to the service of our country. His tragedies make me somber and his victories make me cheer. The great authors evoke emotion those lesser talented make you reach for the fast forward control. Keep them coming Mr. Flynn.

    "Love this series"

    I have listened to all of the Mitch Rapp books and really like this series. I think all of Flynn's books are well researched. I didn't feel that it was a rehash of the previous books. There was some description of what took place in the previous novels, but by no means was it excessive. I would recommend listening to the series from the begining. I'm hooked and can't wait for the next one.

    "I am sad I am almost done."

    I am going to be sad when I complete the series. Only one more book to go. This has been an awesome series of books, ones that you just can't put down once you pick up and start reading.
