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.

What the critics say

"Flynn demonstrates that he truly understands the psyche of the enemy.... Really scary, so realistic." (BookReporter.com)

Exciting Continuation of Mitch Rapp Story

This book is a continuation of the story line from the previous book, "Extreme Measures". It would be ideal to read these books close together.

Hours of Meetings and Right Wing Propoganda

I've been a fan of the Mitch Rapp series since American Assassin, but with Pursuit of Honor and a bit with its predecessor the books have moved away from the spy/action thrillers and into partisan political propaganda. The majority of the book is Mitch in meetings about the ethics of 'Extreme Measures'/torture, bashing liberals as soft on terrorism, and even brings up abortion.
I want to read/listen about Mitch kicking ass and stopping nukes at the last minute - not Mitch in closed-door Senate committee meetings pushing the authors political opinions.
I bought this book due to the unfinished story line in Extreme Measures and am very disappointed. This will be my last Mitch Rapp book.

Another Outstandung Vince Flynn Book

I only wish this installment of the Mitch Rapp series was longer. I enjoyed this book very much. Download this you will enjoy it. On another point I wish Audible would offer the early books in this series in an unabridged format. I refuse to purchuse abridged books.

A great book on audio

I can't wait for the next one. I read so many books and I wait impatiently for new releases from several authors, and this series is one of those for me. I feel it is best to read this from book one if for no other reason than the book and story will last longer for anyone who has not read it yet. If you have not read Rapp yet do so you will not be disappointed with this. I promise it is one of the best listens you can find.

Best Flynn Yet

If you are fan of Mitch Rapp and Vince Flynn you don't even have need to think about this one, it's a winner. If you haven't read any of Vince Flynn's books this should defiantly get you hooked.

One of my favorite authors and one of his best books. I almost had to take time off work to finish this one.

Very interesting, beware of explicit language

Fascinating book and well written. Mr Vince Flynn seems to have conducted "Clancy" type research for his books. And this book is just as well researched. Unfortunately, I had to turn it turn it off due to explicit language. I understand it is part of our lives but do I have to listen to it for enjoyment and relaxation times as well.

Timely

This book could have been taken from today's headlines! It is a real page turner, and I especially liked the confrontation with Congress persons who apologize for terrorists, and demand that we treat them with more respect and greater rights than they would offer us! I hope it is true that we have a few who are still willing to defend us!

Flynn's break from entertainment

If you enjoy being subjected to several right wing tirades within the context of his least well written book then this dud is for you. I've read or listened to all of Flynn's previous books, but this is the last. Sermons, I don't need.

A Fast Paced Pursuit of Excellence

A really great book that confronts the reality of the terrorist threat and the myopic view of many left leaning liberals. The book is fiction but grounded strongly in todays realities and very accurately depicts the manner in which the muslim world views the west. The action and detail are superb. The ending was a bit weak when compared to the rest of the story but that is a minor point.Narrator was OK but needs to work on his cuban accent which is poorly done. Overall this book is well recommended.

Fabulous espionage thriller!

I'm listening to all of Vince Flynn's novels for the third time, this time in no specific order. Pursuit of Honor in novel #12 in order of Mitch Rapp's life, #10 in the Rapp series in order written, and novel #11 in order written of all of Vince Flynn's novels.

I've said before that in my opinion Vince Flynn is the best and most consistent author of espionage thrillers ever. He simply had no peers. The Mitch Rapp series is the best espionage thriller series ever written. Every novel written by Vince Flynn is as close to perfect as a novel gets. When Flynn died three years ago the world lost its best author.

Pursuit of Honor is superbly written and narrated. In the novel we see a mature Mitch Rapp 20 years into his CIA career.
