#1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon Vince Flynn delivers a white-knuckled rollercoaster ride of a novel featuring “the best hero the thriller genre has to offer” (The Real Book Spy) as Mitch Rapp wages a war against a new enemy with the help of a fellow soldier as dedicated—and as lethal—as they come.

Counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his colleague Mike Nash may have finally met their match. The CIA has intercepted two terrorist cells, but a third—led by a dangerous mastermind determined to become al-Qaeda’s new leader—is believed to be on the loose. With such a terrifyingly deadly enemy out there, Rapp needs the best of the best by his side and he believes he has that with Nash.

Together, they have made careers out of meeting violence with extreme violence and have never wavered in the top-secret fight against the war on terrorism. Both have been forced to lie to virtually every single person they care about, and both have soldiered on with the knowledge that their lethal tactics have saved thousands of lives. But certain leaders on Capitol Hill are pushing to have men like Rapp and Nash put on a short leash. And then one spring afternoon in Washington, DC, everything changes.

With nonstop action and ripped-from-the-headlines writing, Extreme Measures is the political thriller of our time and proves once again that, “in the world of black-ops thrillers, Mitch Rapp continues to be among the best of the best” (Booklist, starred review).


  • Inspiring

    By Easy, accurate
    This book is inspiring to all true American Patriots, and instructive to all who have disagreed with the use of extreme measures to deal with our enemies.
  • Boring

    By Salimsavani
    The most boring book I have ever read Way too much detail on main characters that we already know about and very little in terms of plot It was dragging

    I have been a Mitch Rapp fan for many books now, and I have enjoyed them all some a “little more”than others. EXTREME MEASURES ranks as my absolute favorite. I credit this to the fact that this book rang true and crystal clear to me that this scenario is extremely close to reality due to the world we live in today. From the unknown front line heroes that put their lives in jeopardy to keep us safe to the bureaucrats in Washington that seem to be more concerned about their own future than the well being of the country. An excellent read and a “wake up call”for all....
  • My favorite so far

    By Movie Mom
    I couldn't put it down. The characters were so great, the personal, and perilous situations were awesome! The thought of another attack on the US and how we protect ourselves is a sobering one. Vince Flynn does an awesome job setting out an awesome story.
