Why did I read this? I am trying to read through the series before I read the newest in the series. The newest book is written by one of the authors I really like, Kyle Mills, after Vince Flynn passed away a couple of years ago.
The sitting President has decided not to run for re-election due to the onset of Parkinsons. During a campaign stop the front runners motorcade is bombed and several people are killed and scores are injured. A terrorist organization takes credit, the FBI runs their entire investigation ignoring testimony from the lead Secret Service agent. The CIA sends covert operative Mitch Rapp overseas to investigate and what he finds leads right back to the United States and a corrupt Washingtonian (is that an anti-oxymoron) official. Mitch is still reeling from the events of the previous books and the CIA is on the defensive because of the incoming administration.
Grade A, an exciting action adventure thriller.
