#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin --now a major motion picture

Vince Flynn's "high-energy" ( Booklist ) political thriller places CIA superagent Mitch Rapp in the crosshairs of an enemy even he did not anticipate.

When diplomacy fails and military intervention is inappropriate, our leaders sometimes take the third option....Mitch Rapp has been assigned just such an "unofficial" task, targeting a German industrialist who is supplying a notorious terror sponsor. But when the mission is dangerously compromised, Rapp realizes he's been deemed an expendable asset in a power battle on home turf: the choice of Dr. Irene Kennedy as successor to dying CIA director Thomas Stansfield has many detractors, some who will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins. But no one counted on Mitch Rapp's return...or how far he'll go to find out who set him up.

The late Vince Flynn was a thriller writer who was prescient on the dangers of terrorism, beginning his Mitch Rapp series in the 1990s. The Third Option was the second publication with two prequels published more recently. In this entry series Rapp is sent to assassinate a German arms dealer who is selling forbidden technology to Saddam Hussein. Rapp is double-crossed and, trusting no one, goes on a mission to find out who is behind it. The Third Option is a classic spy thriller which leaves the door open for a sequel.

This is the third Vince Flynn book I've read. Although I really like Flynn's books, and he is unquestionably a good writer, I was a bit disappointed at the loose end at the end of the book. This was obviously done to continue the series, but wasn't really necessary. You hate to get to the end of an adventure and have loose ends. Other than that, the book is a very quick and enjoyable read.
