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.

"Flynn demonstrates that he truly understands the psyche of the enemy.... Really scary, so realistic." (BookReporter.com)
This is it. I have listened to all the Vince Flynn books and if we had 10 stars this would be it. I only wish there were more Vince Flynn books to listen to. Whatever you do, don't miss this one.
My first Vince Flynn experience. I saw him on Glenn Beck and thought I'd enjoy his writing. This book is way too long and way too boring....I like the whole concept of the Spy thing but this is so sadly uninteresting. Definitely not worth the credit or money.
The story is most excellent, but what makes it interesting even more in the narrator George Guidall. I will surely hope he does more Vince Flynn Narratives
Whenever Vince Flynn comes out with a new book, I always end up taking the next day off work because I can't put the darn thing down! He needs to make his books come out on Fridays! This one is worth the loss of sleep.
I really like Mitch Rapp and love George Guidall's narration, but something was missing in this book. I'm not sure what it was, either too predictable story line or the ending was rushed. Knowing what happened in the previous book was helpful. The book was just OK but I felt could have been better.
Then you will love Mitch Rapp. It's too bad the series is required reading by anyone in public service. Great, and terrifying. It is incredible that our country's leadership can be as incredibly stupid as they are, this story points some of that stupidity out.
Previous reviews have called out the "realism" of Pursuit of Honor and I expect from a certain point of view that can be considered an asset.
Unfortunately in the real world there isn't a whole lot of action and there are a lot of meetings. That is OK in my day-to-day life but not what I want in an action-oriented novel.
I immensely enjoyed early Mitch Rapp novels but have been disappointed in the last two novels in the series. Mitch spends much more time talking about his feelings and the feelings of his partner than taking down bad guys.
I typically listen while jogging (about 45-50 minute chunks) and there were several times in this book when I would finish my run and realize that for my entire run there was nothing but boring dialog going on between the same 2 or 3 people. Even the terrorists were boring and talked too much...
I love Vince Flynn, but he dragged out the story in places a little too much. Made me really suspend reality to do so. In contrast, he rushes at the end...I felt like he just thought he should end it, so he wraps it all up in a neat little bow and stops. I really hated that. I was left feeling like something was missing. I don't know where he is going to go from here...and now I don't have that anticipation that I love.
I've listened to all of Vince Flynn's "Mitch Rapp" books and I've liked them all. This one is not quite as intriguing as the earlier books, but if you are a Mitch Rapp fan, it's worth the listen.
