The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D. 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.

He stepped from the sedan into the April night, popped his umbrella, clutched the collar of his black trench coat, and set out across a rain-soaked East Twentieth Street. He navigated the puddles and swollen gutter without complaint. The weather was a blessing. Rapp had traveled to New York City to decide the fate of a man. At an earlier point, he had debated the wisdom of handling the situation himself.

In addition to the inherent risk of getting caught, there was another, more pressing problem. Just six days earlier a series of explosions had torn through Washington, D. Three of the terrorists were still at large, and Rapp had been ordered, unofficially, to find them by any means necessary.

So far, however, the investigation had been painfully complicated and had yet to yield a single solid lead. The three men had up and disappeared, which suggested a level of sophistication that few of them had thought the enemy capable of. The last thing Rapp expected, though, was that he would still be dealing with this other issue.

In light of the attacks in Washington, he thought the fool would have come to his senses. Beyond the significance of deciding if the man should live or die, there was the aftermath to consider. Killing him had the very real potential to cause more problems than it would solve. If the guy failed to show up for work there would be a lot of questions, and the majority of them would be directed at Rapp and his boss, Irene Kennedy, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

One tiny misstep, and the shit storm of all shit storms would be brought down on them. Rapp was keenly aware of the universal disdain for the man he had followed to New York. There were plenty of people on the clandestine side of the business who had cause to wish the prick dead, and that was another reason Rapp needed to be absolutely certain he was guilty of what they suspected.

His dislike for the man would make it all that much easier to pull the trigger, and Rapp knew he had to fight that urge. He needed to give this idiot every last chance to save himself before they did something that could never be undone.

If he found the proof he was looking for, there would be no hand-wringing or queasiness. Rapp moved down the sidewalk toward Park Avenue at a casual pace. He was dressed in a fashion similar to that of the thousand-plus executive car drivers who were shuffling their clients around the city on this rain-soaked evening—black shoes, black suit, white shirt, black tie, and a black trench coat.

To anyone who happened to notice him, he would look like just another driver out stretching his legs, trying to kill a little time before his client finished his meal and was ready to head someplace else or call it a night.

As Rapp took up a position across the street and one door down from the Gramercy Tavern, he reached into his pocket and fished out a pack of Marlboros. Standing in the rain in New York City doing nothing might get you noticed, but throw in a cigarette and you looked like all the other addicts battling the elements to get their fix. He tilted the umbrella so it looked as if he was trying to block the wind and flicked his lighter.

After a deep pull off the cigarette, Rapp casually looked out from under the rain-soaked umbrella and across the street. The other man was a concern, to be sure, but Rapp was not in the habit of killing private citizens simply because they were witnesses to the ramblings of a bitter man who was past his prime.

The surveillance team had the restaurant wired for sound, and for the last two hours he had been sitting in a parked Lincoln Town Car listening to his coworker trash-talk the Agency. One would think that anyone who worked at the CIA would be a little more careful about when and where he decided to commit treason. So far his associate had done little more than espouse his political and philosophical views. Bad form, to be sure, but nothing that had risen to the level of outright sedition.

Well, why has it been delayed? You know, do me a favor. Could you say senator instead of ma'am? It's just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title. So I'd appreciate it. Yes, thank you. Yes, Senator.

I miss you Vince Flynn. You gave us a way to look at this war without putting our heads in the sand. Vince Flynn used to write interesting, exciting novels. That time has passed. View 2 comments. Jul 09, Kelley Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: Another fantastic Vince Flynn book! This is the 10th book in the Mitch Rapp series. In this one, Rapp is focused on finding the terrorists that planned and executed the attacks from book 9.

At the same time, has has to deal with a few lose strings on the home front as well. One of the things that I love about Vince Flynn is how he will jump from Mitch's perspective to the perspective of the terrorists.

It's interesting to see how he believes their minds work! There wasn't as much action in this b Another fantastic Vince Flynn book! There wasn't as much action in this book as most of the previous ones. But there was a great view of the psychology of living the type of life that Mitch does. In the last books, Mike Nash was shown just as much as Mitch. And while I loved seeing how someone doing the job that they do handles going home to a wife and kids, I was worried that the series was going to vear too much towards Nash.

He's a great character, but nobody can compare to Rapp for me! Luckily, after this book, I don't think that's going to be the case any more.

While we definetly saw Nash in this book, he wasn't really the main focus this time. I did find myself laughing several times especially towards the end as Rapp did things to other people that he personally would never tolerate! He is a bit of a hypocrite at times. Without giving anything away, I'll just say that towards the end of the book one of the characters was put into a situation that was very similar to a situation that Rapp was in during an earlier book.

When Mitch was in that situation, he flat out refused to step back and let anyone call the shots but him. This time, he refused to let the other character take the lead, and again flat out refused to let anyone else call the shots!

I guess that attitude is probably one of the things that I love about Rapp! Great book! As a side note, the audio book was fantastic. This series is one of my favorites to listen to! Jan 03, The Real Book Spy rated it it was amazing. Vince Flynn really brings it in this high octane thriller! Pursuit of Honor is a direct sequel to Flynn's last book, Extreme Measures, which in my opinion didn't live up to the standard he set for himself with his previous offerings.

Rapp, Flynn's longtime main protago Wow. Rapp, Flynn's longtime main protagonist and center of all his previous novels except one, Term Limits , seemed to get less screen time to the newer Nash. With all do respect to Mr. Where Extreme Measures didn't follow Mitch Rapp as much as his readers had grown used to, Flynn came back by continuing the story and letting Rapp be the main star this time around.

In fact, as if just to prove that Rapp is still "the man" compared to Nash, Flynn treats readers to a moment were Rapp claims his dominance with one well placed palm strike. You'll love it, and find yourself smiling and you cheer Rapp on every step of the way! The story follows Rapp as he hunts down the terrorists responsible for a series of bombs that went off in Washington D.

I'm not going to ruin anything, or give away the fabulous ending, so please just do yourself a favor and pick this book up to read on your own. Just in case there was any doubt to his greatness Vince Flynn turned in Pursuit of Honor, and in doing so, reclaimed his spot as the best in the business as writing thrillers for this genre. Nov 08, seak rated it really liked it Shelves: Just finished my first thriller and you know what?

I didn't hate it. In fact, I kinda liked it.

I like Vince Flynn and this is a good read. It starts out with an American traitor who's position and actions make him an extreme liability. So, Mitch Rapp needs to take, certain action. Interesting spring board from which to start a story. Flynn has a record for telling good, well constructed, fast moving even breakneck speed novels. If you've followed Mitch Rapp's "career" and the book that follows this one is actually a "prequel" giving us Mitch's start in the CIA you know this.

This is s I like Vince Flynn and this is a good read. This is still fast moving and it's still absorbing.

I give it 4 stars and as I have already said, I like it. However I must say that the final climax in this book is very, very, predictable. Using "very, very" always makes me think of the movie "Undercover Blues". The "bad guys" have guns on Dennis Quaid and Kathleen Turner and say, "I want you to get up from the table very, very slowly" to which Quaid reply's, "Very, very?

Like me you'll be shaking your head saying, why don't they see what's coming? Oh well, that aside it's still a good read and I can recommend it. If you're a Flynn fan, a spy novel fan or and action novel fan I think it'll pass inspection, with the one "minor" flaw.

Vince Flynn is the Master what more can I say at this point! He knows how to deliver a story with shear force and amazing accuracy that hits like a bullseye right to the heart.

Vince Flynn eBooks

He captures readers in his insight, in his power, in his control over every situation without fear or hesitation to end terrorism for the sake of his country. I don't know how any reviewer can truly offer any less than 5 star glowing Vince Flynn is the Master what more can I say at this point!

I don't know how any reviewer can truly offer any less than 5 star glowing reviews. In Pursuit of Honor we have some heavy hitters in the arena with Karim and Hakim joining forces all be it they may just self destruct on their own while they go after the nations National Counter Terrorism facility on the war against terror. If they succeed the crippling waves will wipe out America's ability to attack Al Quaeda. Adams exposes the CIA using a tell all to showcase its illegal programs.

No worries as Mitch Rapp doesn't have failure in his vocabulary. Bad Ass is his middle name. Ahmed and Karim are terrorists on their own mission in burning down houses leaving nothing but death and destruction behind.

Rapp knows it will take everything he has in his arsenal to get the mission completed especially in locating Peter Siddov because Ahmed is a trained sniper who is out for blood. Mitch takes no prisoners and Karim learns that lesson the hard way. Mitch is the ultimate enforcer of liberty and freedom. Vince Flynn has done it again Amazing work all around!

It's been years since I have read a Vince Flynn novel. I decided to try it out again. And, I do not like Mitch Rapp anymore. His solution to every conflict, every disagreement, is to simply threaten to kill the person or actually kill him. Rapp is a loose cannon that is portrayed as some glorified American hero. He's not. He's a cold-blooded killer that should be locked up in the brig. Now, I digress. My politics have changed and my worldview has changed since the days I used to read this garbage.

Flynn's novels are full of right-wing, anti-liberal, anti-muslim, and anti-establishment rhetoric. I simply cannot stomach the rhetoric anymore. So, I say a final goodbye to Flynn and Rapp. It was enjoyable at a time when I was like you, but thank goodness, I'm not anymore. Apr 12, Melissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was a great follow-up to Extreme Measures.

The action takes place in the immediate aftermath of terrorist attacks on Washington DC. While Mitch Rapp is the main character, I liked the supporting character development in this one.

I love that Flynn brought back Stan Hurley. What a magnificent old cuss! I also really like the focus on Mike Nash's personal growth and development. Overall, a great addition to the Mitch Rapp series!

Jan 14, D. Jason rated it liked it Shelves: This would be one of Flynn's best, except I first began this one in the mistaken belief that it preceded "Extreme Measures", and I was rather impressed at the leap in Flynn's jump in narrative maturity. Coming to it cold, you feel like you dropped right in the middle of a complicated story, and have to piece some things together as you go along, which was fun. Then I looked again at the copyright date, set this one aside, and read the preceding book first before continuing.

Still, while this boo This would be one of Flynn's best, except Still, while this book follows on about a week after the climax of "Extreme Measures", and continues the story threads that remained open, it DOES add some new elements that you have to work a little to figure out how they affected the previous book.

And it's not ret-conning, it was clearly intended in both books. So while it's not so much of a "here you are in the middle of events, work it out for yourself" scenario as I first thought, it remained satisfying. Flynn makes use of one scene to make an anti-abortion statement.

To be fair, he clearly does not think that is what he is doing. Flynn's hero, Mitch Rapp, is confronted by a California senator over the morality of torture, and calls her out for hypocrisy since she supports late-term abortion.

Since Rapp is obviously pro-torture, and since he explicitly has no opinion on abortion, he is "just pointing out the hypocrisy" of the senator. And, for Rapp the character, I can accept that. But author Flynn clearly has an agenda.

He sets up the confrontation to ensure that the reader is in great anticipation.

Pursuit of Honor

He fails to treat the pro-choice side with any seriousness at all. The senator makes no attempt to explain that her position proceeds from the right of a woman to her own body or if she does, it's so weak as to come off as forgettable sophistry. As far as Flynn is concerned, she is for killing innocent babies, and there can be no other way of looking at it.

I have no problem reading books from authors who hold opinions contrary to my own as this opinion clearly is , but it leaves a bad taste when said author justifies his side with the thinnest of straw men.

It's only one scene and a very brief moment earlier in the story. It doesn't ruin the book.
