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.

    "Mitch Rapp is my all time favorite!"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I love the Mitch Rapp novels. I wish there could be more. Not only did I read this book all in one sitting, but I read all of the Mitch Rapp stories one after another. I have never done that. I even get sick of Jack Reacher. But I never got enough of Mitch Rapp. RIP Vince Flynn.

    "Holy Cow!!!"

    This is insane. I feel like I am addicted to this series. I am completely sleep deprived because of Vince Flynn. My wife is looking for a series to read. I told her the Mitch Rapp character is better than Jason Bourne. She said well I will read one and see. Boy is she in for a surprise. She doesn't believe me. Once she starts this series I won't see her again till this fall.

    "Another great Mitch Rapp novel!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I definitely recommend the entire Mitch Rapp series to anyone that likes adventure, action, and even just more insight into the counter-espionage world.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As always, Vince Flynn keeps the reader engaged and eager to see what happens next.

    "Great action, a bit OCD on the liberal bashing"
    What did you like best about Pursuit of Honor? What did you like least?

    Great action and suspense


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Flynn again?

    Yes


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Mitch Rapp


    Could you see Pursuit of Honor being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all the Mitch Rapp series up to this one. Vince Flynn is a captivating writer and I have always enjoyed it when Mitch Rapp gets the terrorists. There has always been a fair amount of liberal bashing in Flynn’s books, but that’s fine, I enjoy most of it. Unfortunately, this book takes that to an extreme. I thought I was getting an action thriller. Instead, I got The Conservative’s Guide to Unmasking Liberal Fools.

    "Probably my last Mitch Rapp Book"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Less preaching.


    Would you recommend Pursuit of Honor to your friends? Why or why not?

    Conditionally. Make no mistake that it's drive time listening.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    All. It was another excellent Guidall performance.


    Was Pursuit of Honor worth the listening time?

    I'm on the fence about that.


    Any additional comments?

    Mitch Rapp is a bad ass CIA agent, fiercely patriotic, and extremely honorable, with no patience for lily livered politicians. Especially those of the liberal stripe. You expect these things and whatever your political leanings, it's part of the story and I'm ok with it. In this book however, Vince Flynn goes beyond and delivers one diatribe on abortion and then another short one later on God. If I want to hear that I can tune in to Fox News. This is the reason I stopped reading Tom Clancy years ago and why I'll stop reading Vince Flynn now. Too bad, I was enjoying Mitch's exploits up to this point.

    "Classic Rapp"
    What did you love best about Pursuit of Honor?

    Excellent plot, new characters, very entertaining listen.


    What other book might you compare Pursuit of Honor to and why?

    Several of the Rapp books are somewhat similar, but storyline enough different to make this a very good listen.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    George is a first rate narrator. He could make a boring book very entertaining. Producers should be required to listen to some of the books they produce so they would appreciate the difference in a great narrator and the others.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Moved me to keep listening.


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent listen and one of the better books in the Rapp series.
    Certainly worth the money for this audiobook.

    "One of Flynn's best."

    I have now finished five of Flynn's books in the Rapp series and this is one of the best. Every time I put the book aside I could not wait to pick up where I left off. A good read.

    I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.

    "Revenge vs. Honor"
    If you could sum up Pursuit of Honor in three words, what would they be?

    Revenge, Torture, and Redemption


    What other book might you compare Pursuit of Honor to and why?

    This series is a grittier, dirty version of the Jack Ryan series by the late great Tom Clancy. Vince Flynn's book series of Mitch Rapp is reading like reading a companion style novel related to Clancy's Clark character. I have enjoyed listening to this series and am sad because of the loss of a great author and the end of a enjoy character based book series.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Guidall brings an easy listening style to the book even when the world is going crazy and the action is going 10 miles a minute that allows the reader/listener to keep all the plot points in order. I have enjoyed listening to his narration and plan to look for other books he has narrated to maybe find a new author.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a good follow up book to the last Rapp book and leads right into the last book in the series. I would recommend this book to any thriller reader especially military thriller reader.

    "Very Disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Improved Story


    What was most disappointing about Vince Flynn’s story?

    I've read all of the Mitch Rapp books up to this one. He has slowly become a caricature of a hero. Worst of all, the book is boring. Flynn is suffering from the Tom Clancy disease. The first few books are excellent with a focus on the suspense, and less on partisan storytelling. The last books clearly show Flynn's politics. The CIA can do no wrong, and any dissent and oversight of the CIA is a show of weakness and disregard for national security. I have a healthy respect for the CIA and the use of what some people may feel is the use of questionable tactics in dealing with terror suspects, but this book goes well across that line. Rapp has gone from hero to thug (though not in the author's mind). I enjoyed Flynn's first three books immensely, so I may give the next Rapp book a try, but the quality will have to improve a lot, for me to continue with the series.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Pursuit of Honor?

    The immense detail of the fight scene at the Russian nightclub could have been scrapped. It added nothing to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The performance was good, but the material was mediocre at best.
