Time and again, Vince Flynn has captivated listeners' imaginations with his all-too-real portrayal of a secretive world where fearless men and women, bound by duty, risk their lives in a covert war they must hide from even their own political leaders. In Extreme Measures, Mitch Rapp and his agency colleague, Mike Nash, may have met their match. The CIA has detected two terrorist cells, but a third is feared to be on the loose. Led by a dangerous mastermind obsessed with becoming the leader of al-Qaeda, this determined and terrifying group is about to descend on America. Rapp needs the best on this assignment, and former marine officer Nash is his choice. Together, they have made careers out of meeting violence with extreme violence and have never wavered in the fight against the jihadists and their culture of death. But the one thing he never saw coming was that his own government was about to turn on him. Using his insider knowledge of intelligence agencies and the military, Flynn once again delivers a smart, devastatingly intense, and jaw-droppingly realistic political thriller that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the very end.
