After the first Vince Flynn thriller that I read, my mind was made up not to read any more. However, my Dad recommended this one and I’m glad I persevered. This book features Mitch Rapp as a more established character. Where the earlier book sees him as a maverick agent, he’s now a senior figure, friend of the President and sage adviser on Middle Eastern affairs. Ok, so this is somewhat stretching believability, but it does make for an entertaining book!
What set this plot aside was that the storyline in Iran and ensuing political fallout was as intriguing as the action scenes where Rapp continues to be a master of his trade.
