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.

    Story
    "The Fox News of of spy books"

    Like Fox News, it is entertaining for a time but so over-the-top and preachy around their specific philosophy, in the end it's fairly unbearable.
    The overall plot is typical for these types of books and not bad, but the hero is given so many abilities that he is just shy of a cartoon character from the Avengers.
    I made it all the way through the book but I wish I would not have wasted my money on it.

    Story
    "A Comically Bad Book"
    Any additional comments?

    Based on an hour or so of listening time - all I could tolerate - the hero of this story is the CIA's ace torturer. The bad guy is the CIA Inspector-General, who is trying to stop their folks from torturing other folks. The quality of writing is about what one might expect from this story line - lots of one-dimensional characters, infantile philosophizing, and gratuitous violence. It was an especially depressing experience for me after listening to a string of grown-up books by thoughtful, accomplished writers. I blame myself for buying this book based on the description, without doing any research on the author and his other works. The performance was adequate, but also what one might expect given the material - the good guys all had deep, manly voices and the bad guys' voices were whiney and high-pitched.

    Story
    "Thriller story telling veered political soapbox"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Mitch Rapp is a consistent and, until this book, a likable character. In this book he becomes increasingly political as he succumbs to 'mission creep'. His whole focus seems to be to make a statement about the expeditious nature of torture, rather than get on with the work that he does best. There is little 'story' in this book as the 'story' is replaced with a whole lot of grandstanding.


    Has Pursuit of Honor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not books of this genre, but perhaps no more from Flynn.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Guidall's performance is the saving grace of this 'tortured' book.


    What character would you cut from Pursuit of Honor?

    I wouldn't 'cut' a character, but I would cut the whole senate scene where the inquiry into torture is explored.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.
