Here’s an exciting conservative novel: Counter-terrorism operatives Mitch Rapp and Mike Nash are up against a rogue offshoot of al-Qaeda poised to attack the United States. They also have to stop civil liberties activists and their Senate sympathizers who think the “bad guys”—Rapp and Nash—are too tough with suspected terrorists.
Flynn skillfully cuts back and forth between the terrorists relentlessly training for their attack, and the small band of Americans with the understanding, resolve, and talent to stop them—if liberals don’t hold them back. Flynn humanizes the Americans with frequent scenes of Nash interacting with his wife and children.
