The CIA has detected and intercepted 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. Mitch Rapp needs the best on this assignment, and Nash, who has served his government honorably for sixteen years--first as an officer in the Marine Corps and then as an operative in an elite counterterrorism team run by Rapp--is his choice. But on this assignment Rapp and his protege may have met their match.

Extreme Measures was published at the time that ‘Enhanced Interrogation’ was a major news item. Flynn comes down firmly on the 24 side while delivering an excellent spy thriller in the process. Mitch Rapp has to save the US from terrorists while being handcuffed by politically correct and politically motivated leaders. It provides food for thought as the reader rapidly turns the pages.

A disjointed right wing rant about poor government. Could have been written by Rush Limbaugh

I agree with the others. The last 3 books have been phoned in. Flat dialogue, same old story. I think his publisher was holding a gun to his head. A lot like "Groundhogs Day" at the end, runs through all the Rapp plot points and then just ends.

This book is a real thriller, I highly recommend it if you like spying, action, and the bad guys losing.
