Vince Flynn's “high-energy” (Booklist) political thriller places CIA.
Author Vince Flynn sustains the dramatic tension from the opening paragraph to the last; in Mitch Rapp, he's got the makings of a promising series hero. Long on one-dimensional characters, action scenes and espionage details, it falls short on comprehensible plotting. Battle-scarred protagonist Mitch Rapp returns to take on a sensitive new assignment in Europe, only to have things go awry when his two CIA colleagues turn on him following the assassination of a wealthy German count who has been selling arms to Saddam Hussein.
Rapp survives their double-dealing, but he is forced to go underground to decipher the labyrinthine chain of political connections and to learn who was trying to have him killed. Back in Washington, a similar game of spy-versus-spy is being conducted by the elderly, dying director of the CIA and his chosen successor.
Rapp eventually surfaces to help his bosses, but things get personal for the ace counterterrorist when Rapp's bride-to-be is kidnapped as part of the ongoing political maneuvers. Flynn sweats the small stuff to bring his conspiracy to life, but he also introduces enough secondary characters to populate two novels, and he frequently stalls the narrative momentum by providing an overwhelming level of detail regarding various high-tech gadgets and espionage operations. The biggest disappointment, though, comes at the end, when the book is exposed as a shameless setup for a sequel.
Flynn is a popular writer, but his third thriller won't do much to enhance his critical reputation or his sales.

Another superb addition to the Mitch Rapp series by the late Vince Flynn. In this episode, we find our hero looking anxiously toward retirement with this, his self-imposed final mission.
Honoring a commitment for one last mission however, Rapp finds himself in Germany, surveilling and ultimately removing a rogue German Chancellor.
Teamed with two other seemingly benign operatives, something still grates at his instinct: During the violent shootout, he barely escapes with his life and must use all his skills to make a clean getaway. Suspecting immediately that there is a leak in his CIA sponsored command, he returns to the U. And as I keep telling myself, thank god there are many more like this in the Flynn catalogue.
Kindle Edition Verified download. I'm a big fan of a number of genres, the spy thriller a favorite among them.
On the way, he destroys all the evidence that could link him to the Count, changes his clothes and cuts his hair. He uses the driver to book a hotel room before joining a group of cyclists riding to France. Meanwhile, the Jansen's have reported that Mitch is dead. Irene Kennedy is not sure so visits her boss, John Stansfield, at his home. Stansfield says that she should wait on news about Mitch and find out who is leaking information to the Secretary of State.
He has hired him to kill the Jansen's. On another plane heading the same direction, 3 former members of the Seal Six Team, chat about their latest assignment from the CIA. The leader and ex-commander, Scott Coleman says they have been hired to bring the Jansen's back to Washington.
Coleman and his men arrive in Colorado and take up a position above the Jansen's house. Meanwhile Cameron and Villlaume have set up a position meters from the Jansen's front door. Cameron is lying in undergrowth with his sniper trained on the house. The Jansen's step out to leave, and he shoots them both dead. Hank Clark gives Cameron orders to kill both Mitch and Villaume.
Cameron hires the unstable Jeff Duser, and they both drive off to kill Villaume's friend Mario Lukas, the idea being Villaume is nothing without his friend. They set up an elaborate plan that involves a very public battle between Mario and Duser's men. While Mario is shooting, Duser comes from behind and kills him.
Hank Clark is trying to get the two Democrats to oppose the president's likely hiring of Irene Kennedy as the CIA boss and therefore causing a split in the party. His plan seems to be working well, and he encourages Rudin to call Irene in front of his committee and force her to confess to the Count's assassination. Meanwhile, Mitch is back in Washington. He finds a way to his friend Marcus Dumond's coffee shop, and they go back to Dumond's house.
Marcus is a computer hacker for the CIA, and Mitch tells him to hack into the CIA's system and find him some information linked to his attempted assassination.
While they are chatting, Mitch breaks into the room with his gun trained at Irene. He demands to know why she ordered the Jansen's to kill him. Irene says she did not and talks Mitch's into putting down his weapon. Cameron meets Clark. He tells the senator that he has recorded a conversation between Mitch and Anna.
Hank tells him to break into Anna's apartment and find out as much information about her as possible. However, Clark is not happy.
Lukas' killing brought unwanted attention and the only way to sort it out is to kill Cameron. When Cameron leaves, Clark gets in contact with the assassin Donatella Rahn and arranges for her to come to Washington. Scott Coleman and Mitch Rapp join forces to find out who tried to kill Rapp.
Mitch phones Villaume on his cell phone and asks him for some answers.
