Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Captivating.”  Glenn Beck
“Mitch Rapp is still the best CIA-trained human weapon this side of Jason Bourne.” Contra Costa Times
“Flynn delivers his usual high-octane international thriller, but, in giving Rapp’s backstory, he’s infused it with more depth and heart than usual, and Guidall matches him beat for beat, proving himself a fine choice of storyteller.”  Publishers Weekly
