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.

    "Good story, great performance"

    It's good to hear a story where the terrorists get whst they deserve. The narrator is one of my favorites.

    "One of my favorites in the series"

    I really enjoyed this one. The climax was one of the best in the series. The only bad part was knowing I'm one book away from this phenomenal series being over.

    I love to read, the books need to be fairly complicated or interesting in their own way. I belong to a book club that selects great books.

    "A great cliff hanger"

    So enjoyed the book. Sorry when it ended. The suspense was well done, as usual. Nash and Mitch was thrilling. Listening to how they worked everything out.

    "Fantastic Listen, Hard to Stop"
    What made the experience of listening to Pursuit of Honor the most enjoyable?

    George Guidall makes all listening enjoyable but in this case, the book was worthy of his talent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hard to say without giving anything away. I did like the mercy aspect and I am enjoying some of the insightful aspects of how narcissistic people think. Bottom line is you simply cannot reason with someone that's nuts about themselves and never takes responsibility for their own actions.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    My favorite narrator for this type of story. He's just got this narration down to a fantastically enjoyable listening experience.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wanted to tar and feather the bad guy in this one. It's difficult sometimes to cope with the reality that people really do exist such as are described in stories like this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Vince should have given the two men better names. OMG... I had such a hard time following who was who. Archeme and Hacheme??? Far too close in pronunciation. SHEESHK! So, when you first hear their names, make a mental note - a really LOUD one which one is which because when they get into a fight it's hard to remember which one you're rooting for.

    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.
