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.

    "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.

    "Keeps getting better"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The book works in action and politics in a way that is in your face with action but not so much with the politics. It has a point to make but it is quite palatable even if I don't always agree. Just done really well. In this book and the last one the characters have gotten more complex, its not just the good guys and the bad guys in this one. Characters are conflicted and more complex. It makes the book all the more interesting to have this bit of nuance. This is no classical literature but it is damned entertaining and not at all low-brow either.

    "Fantastic Series!"

    Love all the books in this series, so far, except one by another narrator. George Guidall is a remarkable narrator (one of my absolute favorites!) and brings all the characters to life. The story line is actually very believable given the world that we currently live in - pretty scary! Fantastic listen!

    "Pursuit of Honor"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Mitch Rapp is a fantastic Hero character to follow. If you like hard hitting no bull type characters, this is the series to follow.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp, he is tough, hard hitting, with a heart. He has had personal loss and takes killing the bad guys very personally. He won't rest til they're all dead :)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he wins


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

    When Mitch gets the last word with the bleeding heart liberals.


    Any additional comments?

    George Guidall does a fantastic job with all the characters in this series. I love the way he makes Mitch Rapp sound like the bad ass that he is.

    "Right Wing Harangue"
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was angry that Flynn had trashed the spy genre to promote right wing political ideas.


    Any additional comments?

    Apparently, Flynn wrote this novel to please Rush Limbaugh. This political pandering watered down the plot and almost destroyed the story for me.

    "You got to love Mitch Rapp"
    If you could sum up Pursuit of Honor in three words, what would they be?

    Mitch shares the stage with another CIA agent and we see another side of terrorist.


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

    This book reminds us that terrorism is a constant threat and it's target is us.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    The right voice with the right inflections.


    Any additional comments?

    We continue to enjoy the Mitch Rapp series. Vince Flynn has found a way to keep each book new and exciting.

    "Flynn delivers another thriller."
    Would you listen to Pursuit of Honor again? Why?

    George Guidell has a voice you love to listen to. He is the best and I wouldn't mind listening to his voice all day. The story was great - and certainly worth another listen. I love this series.
