Good read....solid Flynn. I would put this in the middle, quality-wise, of the Flynn books I have read, but that still makes it a good page-turner. Instead of Mitch Rapp, I felt the real star in this one was Irene Kennedy, CIA director, but Flynn saved the best part, and Rapp, for the end. Very interesting dynamics between Rapp and his dying mentor, Stan Hurley, during the last 1/4 of the book. I wish Flynn could explore that more in the next book.
