With Rapp away on assignment in Pakistan, CIA Director Irene Kennedy turns to his protégée Mike Nash. Nash has served his government honorably for sixteen years -- first as an officer in the Marine Corps and then as an operative in an elite counterterrorism team run by none other than Mitch Rapp. He has met violence with extreme violence and has never wavered in his fight against the jihads and their culture of death. Nash has fought the war on terrorism in secret without accolades or acknowledgement of his personal sacrifice. He has been forced to lie to virtually every single person he cares about, including his wife and children, but he has soldiered on with the knowledge that his hard work and lethal tactics has saved thousands of lives. But the one thing he never saw coming was that his own government was about to turn on him.

Some significant loose ends are left hanging. The next in the series, Pursuit of Honor, continues the story.

Extreme Measures was published at the time that ‘Enhanced Interrogation’ was a major news item. Flynn comes down firmly on the 24 side while delivering an excellent spy thriller in the process. Mitch Rapp has to save the US from terrorists while being handcuffed by politically correct and politically motivated leaders. It provides food for thought as the reader rapidly turns the pages.

A disjointed right wing rant about poor government. Could have been written by Rush Limbaugh

I agree with the others. The last 3 books have been phoned in. Flat dialogue, same old story. I think his publisher was holding a gun to his head. A lot like "Groundhogs Day" at the end, runs through all the Rapp plot points and then just ends.

This book is a real thriller, I highly recommend it if you like spying, action, and the bad guys losing.
