The head of the CIA and the organization itself, is under attack by both home grown adversaries, in house cybernuts and
Pakistan. Mitch Rapp takes umbrage to the situation
with predictable violence.
Flynn created politically explosive novels and will be missed, one more reason to donate to cancer research.
The book is jammed with action and fraught with moral dilemmas. The depiction of politicians and foreign adversaries and their lack of any noble aspirations is somewhat depressing. The author has obviously read some history and consequently applied that knowledge to a plot that clearly points out failures in the real world strategies of dealing with countries like
Pakistan and Afghanistan. Philosophic congruity is necessary to find
common ground for diplomacy. Nations
that have no experience with populist rule can not be expected to recognize the
moral values we as a nation hold dear.
Our expectations as a nation of laws is ludicrous when applied to
nations that only recognize the authority of who is holding the biggest gun.
The author's depictions of the world are both sadly accurate and soberly frightening. Mitch Rapp is a character who could care less who holds the biggest gun as he is willing to go up against any odds.
The book was finished by author Kyle Mills. It is a good read, a bit more action and mayhem and a bit less thought provoking then Vince Flynn's work but sill worth reading.
