#1 New York Times Bestselling author Vince Flynn Returns with his most exhilarating political thriller to date, a pulse-pounding tale of espionage, covert intelligence and counterterrorism.
The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees.
It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash.
Now that the initial shock of the catastrophe is over, key Washington officials are up in arms over whether to make friends or foes of the agents who stepped between the enemy's bullets and countless American lives regardless of the legal consequences.
Not for the first time, Rapp finds himself in the frustrating position of having to illustrate the realities of national security to politicians whose view from the sidelines is inevitably obstructed.
Meanwhile, three of the al Qaeda terrorists are still at large, and Rapp has been unofficially ordered to find them by any means necessary.
No one knows the personal, physical, and emotional sacrifices required of the job better than Rapp.
When he sees Nash cracking under the pressure of the mission and the memories of the horrors he witnessed during the terrorist attack, he makes a call he hopes will save his friend, assuage the naysayers on Capitol Hill, and get him one step closer to the enemy before it's too late.
Once again, Rapp proves himself to be a hero unafraid "to walk the fine line between the moral high ground and violence" (The Salt Lake Tribune) for our country's safety, for the sake of freedom, for the pursuit of honor.
"Fists, feet, his 9 mm Glock, and a well-wielded epipen are Rapp's weapons of choice in Pursuit of Honor, Vince Flynn's latest thriller featuring the elite counterterrorism operative. It's a page-turner about an out-of-control terrorist shooting spree and the web of traitors in his own ranks that Rapp must untangle to put an end to the killings." -- The Sunday Oregonian (Portland, Oregon)
“Mitch Rapp is a man's man and the definitive take-no-guff, lethal action hero, and anyone who reads Vince Flynn's spy novels knows it.... Just as in other Rapp books, the story moves well, the dialogue is snappy (but, as usual, not insulting or too cliched), and Rapp does things normal people only dream about. He's still the best CIA-trained human weapon this side of Jason Bourne." -- Contra Costa Times (California)
